The CCTV cameras which protect the Iranian church in Van show people pouring out of the building as the earthquake began at 13:41 on Sunday 23rd October. But then the pastor returns, and holds out his prayer towards the wall of the first church to be registered in Van for nearly a hundred years. He knew it was important for the cause of Christ that the church survive the quake. It did. And immediately it became a place of refuge. About a hundred have been coming daily to receive hot meals, most have never met Christians or been inside a church building. Now they were receiving food in the name of Jesus Christ. Van is a border city. And as well as Turks and Kurds, there are also many Iranians there. All have been welcomed at the church.
• Christians in Van to have stamina as they serve.
• Those devastated by quake to give their lives to Christ
• Funds to flow for aid to continue
