You are a Christian child in Turkey.
The Turkish government requires you to attend public school, but you are the only Christian in your class and in your school. Your classmates and your teacher see you as an outsider.
Throughout the school year you are bullied and called names. There is not one classmate willing to take the risk of being your friend.
You are alone.
Can you imagine what it would be like to be the only Christian in your entire school? That's how it is for many kids in Turkey.
But there IS a ray of hope! Each summer these kids have the opportunity to attend camp, where singing worship songs, praying to God, and reading the Bible is NORMAL.
Turkish Bible camps are a lot like ours. They have fun, play silly games, eat delicious meals, and even splash around in the pool. But one of the most wonderful things is being able to hear Bible stories, sing songs, and learn more about following Jesus. Some kids wait all year just for camp to take place again.
The camp program we're working to support has a week for elementary school, middle school, and high school campers.
Please pray about how the Lord would want you to help with this project. Maybe there's something special you can do to help raise money for Christian camps in Turkey. It could even be a project for Vacation Bible School, youth groups, or a special missions offering.
And, of course, remember to pray for our young friends in Turkey, that they would be super encouraged and that they would be more effective than ever in sharing with their friends the good news about Jesus.
Donate to make this experience possible for hundreds of kids!
