A MISSION MESSAGE FROM MIRIAM
As many of you know, myself and a good friend are preparing to spend three months in Turkey between April and July. I feel like my own growing interest in the Middle East, and Turkey in particular, is being matched with a lot of open doors and a sense of calling by God to go. We are still finalising logistics but it looks like I will be studying with and getting to know Turkish university students; as well as studying Turkish language.
I’d like to invite you to partner with me both in prayer and financially. Prayer is absolutely crucial to a trip like this, and to exploring in God's vision and love for Turkey. Finances are essential to this trip happening at all, so we are having a fundraiser:
Turkish Trivia Night and Dinner
Saturday 28 February 2015 @ St Mark's Camberwell
