터키 살구 생산의 중심지다. 말라티아는 아나톨리아(소아시아) 지역중 비옥한 땅을 가진 곳이다. 그러나 우리 기독교인들에게는 2007년 믿음의 형제 세명이 잔인하게 살해 된 지역으로 더 잘 알려져 있다. 와서 순교한 그들의 생명이 훨씬 더 많은 열매 맺는 것을 확실히 지켜보자.
The team went out in hopes of sharing Jesus at one of the local parks. Amazingly, they ALL had opportunities to share their own stories, ask about Islam and then share the Gospel! One of their new friends said, "Oh, so you're Christians?? I have questions I want to ask but I have only been able to read about it. Now I can ask a real person!" The team also shared the gospel with Mahsun, who said he was confused because he had been taught something different from what the team was sharing. He wanted to think more about it so the team exchanged phone numbers with him. Pray there would be opportunities to meet Mahsun again and that God would open his heart to the truth.
