Our daughter Jessica has spent the last 7 weeks in Turkey working with Iranian refugees. She left Istanbul this morning, just hours before a coup occurred and the airport was shutdown. This takes place just a couple weeks after a terrorist bombing at the airport. She was also in France last week for some R&R, and left there the day before the horrific killings in Nice. We thank God that she is in His hands. Many of you have asked about Jessica as a result of the news reports. Thanks you for your prayers.
Jessica has completed her Junior year at Moodle Bible Institute studying Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). She spent the summer using her major with a missions organization in central Turkey. We will have her home for a few weeks before she heads back to Chicago to complete her degree.
