My trip through Turkey has had me staying in some rather 'earthy' places, from the basement of a 100 year-old church to cheap hotels that make most missionary guest houses look like five-star luxury accommodations.
I’ve also had an extremely packed schedule, involving early mornings, late nights and 1,491 miles of travel in a compact car during a three day period.
Needless to say, I haven’t had much Internet availability or computer time along the way.
I’m presently back in Istanbul after various meetings, the chance to preach at two church services (Russian and Turkish), and – bonus - the opportunity to see all seven cities of the churches of Revelation, plus Colossae, Hierapolis and other cities of Biblical significance.
I have some amazing stories to share – stories of wonderful historical encounters; stories of trafficked girls finding redemption; stories of near-death experiences; stories of churches waking up to the call to care for the orphan and widow.
...But I’ll simply have to share them with you later.
Thanks for your prayers!
