Cookies and the Gospel

cookiesWe have been encouraged recently with reports from one of the young couples that has recently moved to Turkey. PI policy is that our staff study language for two years before they venture into full time ministry work. J and S were eager to befriend their new community. One creative idea they came up with was to bake and share cookies with those living in their apartment block:

“Praise the Lord that because of our neighbours’ curiosity, we have been able to share the gospel with them! Since we are American, they expected us to be Christians, but many had questions about the Good News and what it means. These seeds have been planted, so please pray that they will grow. So far, we have given cookies to 6 families, only 1/3 of our apartment complex. This month, we will continue to pass out more cookies while trying to reconnect with neighbours we have already met.”
