Nazire is a middle-aged lady from Istanbul, Turkey who visited our church in Ankara and shared an incredible testimony of God’s miracle power. Here is a portion of what she told us:
A friend of mine from Istanbul told me about your church and I had to share with you what God has done for my family. I started to believe in Jesus about three years ago. During that time we were going through some hard times especially with my daughter who is in her twenties. She attempted suicide by jumping off of the sixth ﬂoor of a building and as a result, 17 of her bones were badly fractured and she was not expected to live.
The doctors gave us no hope and we didn’t know what to do. I asked my friend who was more mature in the faith to come and pray for my daughter, and she prayed.
That night the doctor told us my daughter was going to die; it was just a matter of time and there was nothing medical science could do for her. I prayed the whole night, and in the morning my daughter was totally healed, as if she had been resurrected from the dead.
Look, among you today, my daughter who was expected to die, is alive and well and worshipping Jesus with us today.
That is not all. My son who had been a drug addict and mocked my faith in Jesus has been saved too. One day as he mocked me, he said, “If there is a God, I want to meet Him.” To his surprise, God revealed Himself and my son knelt that day and accepted Jesus. From that day until now, he has been totally delivered of drugs and now he helps others who struggle with addiction like he once did.
God is alive and well in Turkey, performing miracles and saving people for His glory.
