The Bulgarian Bible Society in Sofia has just published our easy-to-read Gospel of Luke in a very attractive format. It is now being posted to many new Turkish house churches (over 100!) across Europe. Our first production, the Gospel of John, has already gone out in Bulgaria, N. Macedonia, and Kosovo. Pray for fruit that remains. We now have an agreement with the newly established Turkish Bible correspondence course and these details appear in the Luke’s Gospel as it goes out. This is a wide net designed to catch many fish!
The photo at the top of this post is a snapshot of last Sunday’s worship service in a small Turkish speaking village in NE Bulgaria near the Danube River. Similar meetings were taking place in over a hundred small towns and cities in Bulgaria. Notice their unheated meeting room. This church has lost over half its young members who’ve gone to seek work in Western Europe, sadly, many will not return. But these young workers have started more than a hundred house churches in West Europe.
Paths They Have Not Known…
This week we have taken a new step that is challenging us to look to the Lord for more guidance as to our future involvement in Turkish work and the Silk Road. That is all we can say at this point. Please pray with us in the light of Isaiah 42:16.
I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them
and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
I will not forsake them.
