Travel through Eastern Turkey by train sharing the Good News of Jesus along the way. Encourage a tiny, growing fellowship in one city while being the first to bring the Gospel to people in other cities.
After orientation, travel by train with your team to cities along the Turkish railway line. This railway line is famous for winter travel. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you to divinely appointed people for which to pray and share the Gospel. Use your gifts to bless a local fellowship and gather English speakers in different towns for a language exchange. Be ready to carry your own luggage and walk a lot in cold temperatures remembering that you truly have beautiful feet!
