악사라이의 초기 교회들은 혼합주의적으로 변했고 또 그들의 힘을 잃었다. 현재 한 두명의 신자가 있을 뿐 교회는 없다. 이곳은 터키 소금 산업의 중심 도시다, 그러나 영적 소금이 될 사람들은 어디 있는가?

Finding cracks in Aksaray

The team in Aksaray writes: "We drove into Aksaray and went to the Ulu Cami and prayed for the hundreds of men waiting for the prayer time. Prayed that God would reveal himself to them as they bowed down! Then we prayed over the area where the Red Crescent was doing a blood drive. We prayed that the blood that was given would save lives and that all the people who worked at the tent and went in and out of the tent would know that Jesus gave His blood to save their lives. We talked to two teenagers in a park and asked how we could pray for them. Ender (17) wants to be a judge, and Zeliha (16) wants to be a pilot. So we prayed God would bless them and give them success in their dreams and desires. We met an Armenian background Kurd who is studying in the department of religion. He has also written in before to the Bible Corrrespondence Course. He is talking with others about what he's reading and as a result, some people have complained. The dean has had to step in and fortunately has taken Ender's side. We prayed around the department that God's truth would be revealed!
