This past Monday we had the opportunity to travel to Brooklyn, New York City. The main focus of our visit was to sing at a Turkish restaurant, and before we sang they fed us a most delicious meal of authentic Turkish food.

But while we were waiting for the meal, we captured a few random smiles --

They brought us a large, piping hot bread, along with 5 different dipping sauces and veggie trays. The main dish was 3 meats with rice and wonderful spices. We've all decided that we really like Turkish food! (Which is fun, because we've actually been learning to make allot of different ethnic foods at home. We'll have to practice Turkish next!)

And finally, the opportunity to share to the restaurant customers.

Many thanks for your prayers over this past week. We've really seen the Lord working in amazing ways on this tour. Divine appointments, timely conversations, safe travels, and increased opportunities to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Praise His name!

"I will praise You, O LORD, among the peoples,
And I will sing praises to You among the nations."
Ps 108:3

How cool. Turkish food sounds interesting. I've never had it, but I bet it was good!

It's wonderful to hear how all the prayers for you have been answered. Thank you for sharing.

My brother spent five weeks in Turkey this spring on a missions trip. He came home raving about the food. He had to take his girlfriend to a Turkish restaurant when he came home. :)

That's really neat that you got to sing there!

Yum! That bread makes me hungry! How nice that you all got to sing at that restaurant. Glad you like ethnic foods. We make turkish rice at home- dripping with golden butter. It's delicious! My dad really knows how to make it, though we're not turkish.

You all should try making Romanian recipes too! Mouth watering- and Romanian desserts are excellent.
I know cause I've been to that part of the world.
