Elif is a university student that I met while spending a couple of days in eastern Turkey this past fall. While praying for the Lord to bring one more person for us to share the gospel with before the day was over, Elif walked into a local church I was serving. We were able to share the gospel with her that day and had coffee with her after running into her later that evening.
Elif has since gone to the church’s worship gathering a few times, even bringing her friends along. Since returning to her city, we have met for coffee, went to a group class and even had our first Bible study together. Praise God for Elif!
It has been a joy to be welcomed into fellowship with the sisters and brothers in this church and to serve alongside them as they seek to reach their city and all those who come through the doors of the church building, with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
