Uşak has a high concentration of Turkmen, whose carpets have helped the province achieve fame. Crime has been a problem. There has been little spiritual interest or fruit here - come sow the seed!
That's what Paul said the gospel to the Gentiles was doing. Maybe it be so in Uşak! For in the basement of an office building, 280 members of an Iranian church are meeting together. The team was able to join between 50 and 100 people for a prayer meeting. The pastor asked each team member to share and to pray for the Iranian believers - most asked for a deeper walk with the Lord! Praise God, many are reaching out and there were a few Turks too. Unbelievably, one of them studies in İzmir and attends the same English club that the team leader helps with there! It was very encouraging after a long, hot time in Uşak with few encouragements except for one team member reading the Bible daily with one of the hotel staff. Please pray that these precious Iranian believers would reap a Turkish harvest in Uşak!
