Eurasia Trip 2013

The heart of our church and ministry these past years has been to see the gospel penetrate places where it has yet to go, or yet to take root. Such was the case with our September, 2013 trip to Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, and Romania. While some of these places were the first areas that the early church began to evangelize, today there is hardly a gospel witness to be found. Brothers Chris and Tim Pledger went to some of these extraordinary and Biblical routes where some of the first disciples of Christ once preached. Places like the Antioch, (modern Turkey) where believers were first called "Christians" were visited and souls were saved in the very towns were nearly 2000 years earlier the church of Acts experienced its infancy. Churches were encouraged and people were saved in places like Thessalonica (modern Greece). This region of our world has great spiritual needs. Islam and other dead religions now stand where the Bible once stood. Sadly, many are drowning for lack of truth. Pray that God will speak to the hearts of men, and that they will listen to His Voice.
