İzmir is the third largest city in Turkey and also the Biblical Smyrna. It has more churches than any city except İstanbul and unity between them has the potential to reap a great harvest. Now, for the towns and villages of Izmir!
Two of the team members prayed for a man's back pain and he felt better! The girls prayed for a lady with a balance problem who said she didn't feel any different. They remembered that Jesus once had to pray twice so they prayed again and the lady said she felt the presence of God! In fact, she wanted them to pray over and over! Later, the girls asked to share the shade with a lady and her daughter and they shared the story of Jesus. But the lady told us she was confused, it was impossible for Jesus to be "with them." As they sat with her, some other believers began playing music nearby and passed out literature, which made her suspicious. Afterwards, as the conversation continued, she mentioned a problem with her ear. As they prayed for her she experienced Jesus! And as they continued to pray for her, Jesus healed her ear! She was overjoyed! She came to the seaside just for fresh air, and received a gift from Jesus Himself. The team got her number and a team member who lives in İzmir plans to meet with her when they return to Izmir.
