Adıyaman boasts Nemrut Dağı, one of Turkey's most famous monuments. There are many economic obstacles. A handful of believers meet in two small house churches. Jesus died for the people of Adıyaman.

An international group of believers spent a day in Adıyaman to pray, encourage the believers and to see whom God had for them to share with. Two of the women saw the blood bank drive and one decided to give blood! She spoke at length with the doctor there who opened up the pain of his and his wife's infertility. The women were able to pray for him, which left him in tears, and leave him with a New Testament. Please pray that God would open Aisha's womb and that they would know immediately it was Jesus who answered their prayers. Some of the guys wanted to buy some fruit but when they only had a large bill, the shop keeper told them to just have it for free. This reminded them of Peter and John so they presented the shopkeeper with what they had - a Jesus film and a More Than Dreams DVD. He was delighted to receive them! Ask God to water these seeds and to work in the lives of the believers - from a small shoot may they become oaks of righteousness! Ask Him to encourage the leaders of the tiny fellowship with wisdom, grace and prophetic words to speak into peoples' lives.
