Lydia is 27 years old and grew up in the South of Turkey. When she was 8 years old someone (probably the BCC) sent the Jesus film and a New Testament to her family. They watched the Jesus film together and she wanted to know more but she was afraid to tell her family. In religion class at school she longed for the religion teacher to teach about Jesus but she never did. One day her school went on a trip to the mosque. She heard that it was God's house and a place of peace, but she couldn't find peace and was very discouraged. For a long time she used wondered who God and Jesus were.

After she moved to a big city with her family they visited a Catholic church and she was amazed to feel the peace of God's presence there. She found our website. She felt what she was reading there was true and visited it for two years. She was hesitant to write to us but eventually after researching she contacted us to us to say she wanted to follow Jesus. Some of the women from our office visited her and explained about Jesus and the Holy Spirit. She was ready to accept Jesus and now wants to go to church.

Please pray for Lydia and pray for those who are on the road but still haven’t arrived at their final destination.

One of the most exciting outreaches of the year is April 23rd when tens of thousands of Turks travel to the ‘Big Island’ in Istanbul, climb the hill to an ancient Greek monastery and pray for a blessing. Folklore has it that if you visit the monastery and light a candle or run an unbroken piece of string from the bottom of the hill up to the monastery, you will receive an answer to your prayer.


18 months of declaring

Since 1 July 2011, the Bible Correspondence Course is running an exciting 18 month initiative to challenge all of Turkey's 81 provinces to consider the claims of Christ. Working together with local believers and churches from all over the world, we believe it is time to declare to every province in Turkey that a Savior has been born to them – a Son has been given to them. In more than a third of Turkey’s 81 provinces there is no meeting of believers and many have no known believer whatsoever.
