Uğur never came back with the Bible

Uğur Yüksel
More than five years ago, a young Turkish man named Uğur shared his love of Jesus with a waitress at a café he often visited in Malatya, Turkey. He said he'd bring her a Bible the next day, and she eagerly waited for it.

However, he never came.

Instead, she saw his picture on the news and learned that Uğur had been brutally murdered. She was heartbroken and confused, and began a prolonged search for a Bible.

This summer she learned of believers at a Christian camp an hour away, and she continued her search there. When she arrived, they shared the Gospel with her and gave her the Bible she'd sought for the past five years. The group was meeting at the very same lake where Uğur made his profession of faith and was baptized.

Please pray that this dear woman will follow his godly example.
