On a recent trip to southern Turkey, I saw the openness to the Gospel that the Syrian Kurds have. One night a Muslim family visited the house and as one of the team was sharing the Gospel with them in Kurdish, I asked the Lord for a word for the wife. I shared John 6:35: “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
Unbeknown to me she had just shared how she had a dream where someone was giving her bread, and she didn’t understand what it meant. The couple was touched by the love and amazed at how God answered them. These Muslim Kurds and others are turning to Christianity and realising that Jesus is indeed the bread of life.
