Kayseri ist eine alte Stadt und hieß in römischer Zeit Cäsarea. Sie hat eine lange christliche Geschichte, die sich leider heute in der konservativen Stadt nicht niederschlägt. Dennoch gibt es eine kleine, aber wachsende Gruppe Gläubiger.
"By the time we arrived in Kayseri, the service guy also received a New Testament and we had been through one police check. When we got out of the bus, there were yet other policemen to check our documents. After examining them and checking their database, they carefully asked if we had a number of New Testaments with us. Clearly the bus driver had mentioned something to them. They asked if we would mind showing our bags to them and we decided that we would only do so if they had a special order. The police were hesitant and uncomfortable. But when they asked when we planned to move on and we explained we were leaving the next day, there were smiles all around. We felt like Brother Andrew on one of his smuggling experiences. The box which obviously contained literature was completely blinded from their sight ! We went off rejoicing and praising the Lord!”
