European Initiative has been conducting ministry in Turkey for the past few years. We are saddened by the loss of life as a result of the devastating earthquakes. EI will mobilize some of our European staff to Turkey to serve with our local partners by helping to bring aid to where it is needed.

The Call to Turkey

European Initiative stands with the Turkish people during this time of devastation as 10 provinces have been affected by three of the most powerful earthquakes the country has seen in over 80 years. Tens of thousands of lives have already been lost. First responders have rescued several thousand people, but it is a race against time to save countless lives who are trapped under the rubble.

If ever there is a time that the Turkish people need a message of hope it is now. We are enlisting volunteers from the USA and Europe to come to Turkey for one to two weeks to talk with the Turkish people; praying for them, listening to their stories and sharing a message of hope.

If you are interested in joining EI staff in Turkey during this time of crisis, please contact Jessica Grome for more details.

If you cannot come to Turkey, please contact Jessica for prayer points – your prayers will make a difference.
