Ağrı ist aufgrund des Berges Ararat und der Expeditionen auf der Suche nach der Arche Noah bekannt. Es ist eine sehr arme Provinz mit vielen sozialen und wirtschaftlichen Problemen. Trotz niedriger Bildung sind viele aufrichtig suchend.
A group of young Armenians travelled from Armenia to Ağrı to preach the message of healing and reconciliation between Turks and Armenians. In Ağrı, they took several day trips to different villages. Although in some places the language was a barrier, people were always touched by their love and were open to receiving prayer. They were able to pass out lots of İncils and literature. and were invited into several homes. They also had a powerful time worshipping and praying for restoration and further reconcilation to come between Armenians and Turks and of salvation to come through this. In one city they stopped at for some rest. They ran into a group of girls in a park. They weren’t able to talk very much with them, but one girl spoke some English. They were open to taking about Jesus and intrigued when the team presented the gospel to them. Each of the girls received an İncil and said they would read it. Pray for true reconciliation with the Father through the blood of Jesus to come to Ağrı!
