Burdur

Burdur has abundant lakes. It is a traditional society where change is slow to happen. There are no known believers. Paul insists that all from this region heard the word of the Lord but this has been forgotten in the last 1900 years.

Believing for Burdur

The team prepared for their ministry in Burdur by praying and worshipping in a park cafe. They also connected with people and prepared Scripture gifts for ladies. They gave their favourite waitress a ceramic rose box with 20 scriptures. The brother on the team shared with several men who were both happy to get an İncil. On the bus to Burdur Lake, the team gave materials to an Afghan family. They later prayed they would meet them again and when they found them at the lake, sat at a table next to them. One of the brothers who knew some English and Turkish came over. They played them an Iranian Chrisitan song. The brother explained to the family that the song was saying Jesus came from heaven to earth then carried on translating it. The brother on the team shared many truths with him and asked many questions about sin, heaven and hell he could not answer. Another couple who were against "religions" were shared with and then accepted a New Testament. All in all, the team had times of sharing, praying with and /or giving literature to about 20 people!
