In 2014 the Turkish Baptist Convention was founded. Together with the Iranian Baptist churches in Izmir, Adana, and Samsun, nine churches belong to the convention. Under the leadership of Pastor Ertan Cevik we support a team of six pastors. All the churches are very active in helping refugees.
Every day hundreds of children die due to malnutrition and diarrhea in India. The poorest of the poor are the Adivasi. In over 15 villages in the Nellore district where the Adivasi live the milk and egg program of our partner ALMA helps these people. ALMA is a Baptist convention of over 400 local churches.
In India about 15 000 farmers take their lives every year because they cannot get out of debt from the suppliers for seeds and fertilizers. Our partner “CBM Bethel Hospital” wanted to do something against it and started the fighting hunger program in Vuyyuru in 2012.
