- Meetings for Turkish Speakers

Meetings for Turkish Speakers

On the hottest day of this year, there was an unusual meeting in Winterthur.  Once again, after several years, a seminar for Turkish-speakers from all over Switzerland was held on June 30, and the temperatures were just like back home. Turks, Kurds, Arameans, Iranians and Swiss attended the event. For many, it was the first time that they were able to attend a larger Christian event. They realized that they are not alone with their belief in Jesus. Aside from lots of of fellowship, food and cay (Turkish tea), the program also included several short devotionals on the topic of: “The Person Jesus” and singing praise songs in Turkish.  

Fatime, who has known Jesus only for a short time, stated at the end of the event: “Please, please do this every month and don’t wait until Christmas. This encounter was very important for me. I understood so much. It’s as if I was reborn! ”

Of course, more such days are planned. However, the next meeting will be the Christmas celebration, in Basel this time!
