Hope And the Good News of Jonah


Please Click Image for Complete Sermon Notes

As I’ve traveled to Turkey and Armenia over the past few years, I’ve been blessed to hang out…

  • With a great number of amazing men & women who have given every part of their lives to Jesus.
  • I’ve gotten to know a pastor in Armenia, for example, who, during the Soviet days, chose prison rather than keeping quiet about Jesus.
  • They made his life miserable… and yet, now, in his mid-sixties, he continues to be one of the most joy-filled people I’ve met.


And, of course, every time I’ve been to Turkey, I’ve spent time with men and women who are risking everything to follow Christ.

  • All of them have been arrested and harassed by the government over the years…
  • and several have been severely beaten during extended imprisonments.
  • This past year, I met two women, one Armenian and one German… both of whom lost their husbands as Martyrs.
