Kars' history was at one time was more tightly linked to Russia. You can see the influence in its architecture and the ruins of Ani, an important Armenian city, and other church ruins. Time for Kars to discover a new and living faith.
A team of Armenians had the vision to travel to Kars to pray for healing and reconciliation between Turks and Armenians and for Turks to know the real reconciliation of a relationship with Jesus. In Kars, they went to several different villages and many historical sights to pray and try to meet people. Everyone was always curious why they had come back to Turkey as Armenians and that opened the door to be able to share about the gospel and the message of forgiveness with many. In one village, the team started talking to the waitress while they were eating lunch. She was very interested in who we were and why we had came and invited us to her home. There they met the family and were able to share the gospel with them and the power of forgiveness and reconciliation. They all gladly received İncils and prayer and they had a very special time together. In another village, they met an old man at one of the ruins. He had pain in his back so they could pray for him and tell him that Jesus came to heal and to save him. He also received an İncil.
