Dear family and friends:

Many of you are concerned about the situation in Turkey and those of us the nearby neighbors.  We are fine in the arms of our Heavenly Father.  Thank you for all your prayers.

Thank God, that Jim and Sophia left Istanbul about three hours before the coup attempt.  It is now 3:30 pm and I see that they opened the airport in Istanbul.  The army generals just a short time ago flew illegally into Alexandroupolis, the Greek city closest to Turkey.  They are asking for asylum in Greece.

Please be praying for the Turkish people, the millions of refugees there and all the missionaries and tourists.

With love in Him, vula

    Pray for safety and health as you continue your mission this summer.
    The world is in chaos. But in Christ we have peace.
