Our first stop once we hit the road was Bursa where we did two shows just outside a large mall. We performed here last year and have always had big crowds. Each show drew around 2,000.
This year our sharing and dramas reflect our theme of raising awareness about violence against women. We have found many open doors for performances when we are able to address a social issue and weave in the truth of God's love. The truth is God loves women and greatly values them! It's been neat to share hope with so many that truly need their eyes open and tell them God sees their hurt and is there with them.
Our next stop in Turkey's capitol, Ankara, was inside a shopping mall. Shoppers watched from all three levels overlooking our performance area. We were able to share more in depth with people afterward. In Gaziantep we also performed at a large shopping mall with four levels for crowds to watch. The mall management liked our show so much they have asked us to return next week for a second show.
Thanks for praying with us!
