Kilis

Kilis is one of the newer provinces. Located on the Syrian border, many people here have relatives on the Syrian side and they are affected when relations with Syria sour. Water rights are a big issue - let's offer the free water of life!

Kilis is unusual in Turkey in that the population of Syrian refugees is greater than the population of Turks. This has resulted in a somewhat tense environment in Kilis. The team who travelled there writes: "Two of us headed for Kilis after being warned that we might receive a lot of scrutiny. After only one roadside check, we were warmly welcomed into a home for tea and conversation. Warm hospitality as well followed at a ladies' training centre where we donated a Bible to their library. The theological student sitting beside us on the trip had many questions about our faith and also happily accepted a book. In spite of our inexperience and hesitancy, God directed our steps and opened doors! May He water these little seeds in Kilis!
