Jody Update: Istanbul, Wednesday

Today started in Skopye with a breakfast appointment with Sashe and Maria…a key pastor and his wife in this city.  They planted a church a number of years ago, and have just turned it over to the pastor we had coffee with earlier in the week.  They will be taking a years sabbatical before planting a new church in a different part of the city.  We were able to share about the School of prayer and also shared about teaching the previous evening on marriage.  The Marriage Rx material could be a real tool for evangelism within this city, among many of their orthodox neighbors….not taking them from their communities or churches,but encouraging their faith.  At noon we traveled by taxi to the airport, and took an hour flight to Istanbul.  Just the sound of it is unbelievable.  I have seen many cities, but this one is striking….an amazing place.  We met with our first contact over dinner…instantly connected at a heart level, and she is opening doors that I will share about when I return home.  Tomorrow there will be three more critical contacts……some sightseeing…..and then our last night….before returning to the states on Friday…..a day that will take forever….but back home by midnight.  Look forward to seeing all of you. Blessings, Jody
