God, our flights and your prayers have brought us safely to our destination. We met up with each other in Istanbul and then flew together to a city near the southern border. Our hostess met us and brought us to a simple guest house where we had a good night's sleep. This morning we enjoyed exploring a bit of our neighborhood while shopping for our breakfast. Later, we "prayer walked" our way to the church where we gathered with a Turkish congregation. Now, it's Chai Time before the second service for the Syrian congregation begins.
We have already been blessed by what we have heard and seen, but we may not freely share in this space. Wifi is limited and we want to be careful for the sake of others. Thank you for sending us with your prayers. We're very thankful to be here!
