Ministry among the Turkish-speaking people

written by Martin Delange

For many years the nearly 1 million Turkish speaking people in France were completely unreached by the gospel. The Turkishspeaking people are an isolated group of people, well known for their lack of integration into the French culture and society.

It was only in 2013 that OM France started to reach out to this people group with a focused strategy when we joined the OM France team.
For the next 4 years we were the only Turkish and French speaking missionaries reaching out to the Turkish speaking people in France. Since 2013, through this OM ministry, 7 churches have been planted across France. In 2018 Alper, Laurent and Claire joined us (see their presentation below).

In the light of this development and expansion, the OM leadership in France wanted to celebrate what God has done in this people group.This took place in Evry on 1st December 2018. Fifty partners, French pastors and Turkish believers joined together to celebrate God’s blessing on the Turkish-speaking community in France. We heard testimonies, enjoyed Turkish music and food….and above all God was glorified for what He has done. God is at work in His own, unique way, and for the OM team it is simply a delight to follow Him, and work with Him. Thank you for your support, partnership and prayers for this unique OM France ministry .
