Artvin was historically part of Georgia and still has many ancient castles and churches. But the decreasing population reveals the lack of industry and economic opportunities. There are no known believers. Won't you come?

Meaningful discussions

Photo from Artvin

Burhan and Bob met a man who approached them while sitting in the main square of the town. Burhan started to chat and explained about the Kutsal Kitap website. They talked for a while about faith and he seemed open. Burhan gave him a tract and his number. Pray that he would seek the truth. Later we entered a shop that makes local wooden mini houses. Bob told the guy that he studies the Bible to which the guy replied it has been changed. Bob discussed this more and left him a booklet to read about it. On our way back to the city in a dolmuş, Burhan talked with the driver and after chatting about politics he explained that we are here to pray and share our faith. As we left the dolmuş, Burhan gave him a tract. We also got to meet with a believer there who came to faith through the Kutsal Kitap website. Pray for him to stand strong in his faith as he is on his own and faces some pressure from family.
