Melanie and I were recently in Turkey at the invitation of Matt and Julie Beemer, Rhema Mena Directors. Christianity is allowed in Turkey, but out of 88 million people, only 8,000 are Christ-followers. 

Here are some highlights from the trip:

The Holy Spirit Conference
Over 280 pastors and leaders from a dozen countries gathered together for a Holy Spirit conference in Turkey. Men and women were refreshed by the love of God and the power of the Spirit. The worship led people into encounters with God's presence. The teaching was tremendous, with signs and wonders following. There were several testimonies including salvations, fillings of the Holy Spirit, impartations, prophetic words, healings, and miracles, including a mass that disappeared.  

The First Rhema Mena Meeting
Matt and Julie Beemer gathered leaders from the Mena region to build relationships and share vision. 

Meeting with Turkish pastors about starting a Bible school
There was a meeting about starting a Bible school. Turkish pastors were receptive because of the relationships that have been built in Turkey. 

Time with Go Church Beirut family
There was a great team from Lebanon that came to serve at the conference, so we got to spend time with our friends from Beirut!

There are more things that happened that we cannot share with you here, but we do thank you for your giving, support, and prayers. 

If you have not done so already, please consider making a 1-year commitment as a monthly financial partner or give to my next trip to Beirut that is coming up in September. Click here for more information
