For many years the nearly one million Turkish speaking people in France were completely unreached by the gospel. The Turkish speaking people are an isolated group of people, well known for their lack of integration into French culture and society.
It was only in 2013 that OM France started to reach out to this people group with a focused strategy. For the next four years members of the team were the only Turkish and French speaking missionaries reaching out to the Turkish speaking people in France. Since 2013, through this OM ministry, seven churches have been planted across France. In 2018 Alper, Laurent and Claire joined the team, as illustrated below.
The OM leadership in France wanted to celebrate what God has developed and expanded in this people group. In Evry, on 1st December 2018, fifty partners, French pastors and Turkish believers joined together to celebrate God’s blessing on the Turkish-speaking community in France. Testimonies were given, Turkish music and food was much enjoyed, but most importantly, God was glorified for what He has done. God is at work in His own, unique way, and for the OM team it is simply a delight to follow Him, and work with Him.
Thank you for your support, partnership and prayers for this unique OM France ministry .
