The day after he debated with a Christian missionary over his atheistic beliefs, Mehmet called the missionary and said: “I have read over 2,000 books and never believed in miracles. I left Islam when I was 13 years old and became an atheist. But when you prayed last night, something happened. Jesus came to me in a dream. I would like to accept Him. I would like to become a Christian.”
Since that day in 2017, Mehmet has been studying and sharing the Gospel with friends and family. Since his conversion, Mehmet’s aunt and sister have chosen to follow Jesus, but many of his immediate family members are not Christians. Mehmet continues to suffer for the sake of the Gospel in his relationships with friends and family, but he feels blessed and encouraged to serve the Lord in Turkey.
Mehmet works diligently in the areas of church planting, discipleship, and Bible correspondence among Islamic people. He has a deep desire to share the Gospel with students and see them grow in their faith as he continues to faithfully follow as God leads.
