|Fellowshipping together before we began worshipping|
I don’t want to reveal people’s actual names, and will be using substitutes for this journal. There is a Turkish couple: Susan and Bill who have been faithfully attending the church for over ten years. Only this last year has there been a translator! And in the last several months there have been a more Turks coming to church! In fact, there is a new believer, Eric who became a believer about a month or so ago! At the Sunday night Turkish fellowship Eric came ready with questions.
Worship is WONDERFUL! Aaron a middle aged Turk is very tall and skinny and a talented musician. He brings his saz to play during worship, this is a type of stringed instrument. These songs are translated Western songs (as much as I can tell) into Turkish. I stumble over the words as we sing together, but am able for the most part to participate. The Turkish Alphabet is both Latin and phonetic though sometimes I am not able to make the right sounds!

Since being in this school I wonder what it could look like for Andrea to pour into Bill and Susan—an older Turkish couple. Would they be receptive to her teaching them, so that they could be a part of Eric’s discipleship? Or even empowering and growing Eric—equipping him to in turn teach others. These are the questions that I am asking myself right now.
Seeing God move here in Turkey has been incredible—God has been moving in my own heart and in the hearts around me.
