There are 1 million Muslim Turks living in France.
Currently Petro and I are the only Christian workers reaching out to this people group. Our vision is to see a growing community of Turkish believers.
And that is why, after working as a crime scene investigator and fingerprint expert in the South African police for a number of years, we felt a clear call to forsake all and start with a church planting project in Turkey.
After Bible school, we joined a worldwide mission’s agency called Operation Mobilisation and for 14 years we were involved in bringing the message of hope to thousands of Muslims.
After we planted the 4th church in the eastern part of Turkey and after many unpleasant experiences with the local Turkish police we were eventually deported back to South Africa.
I have been a pastor, church planter and missionary for the past 23 years. Petro and I have been married for 26 years and we have 3 sons. We are currently serving the Lord in France among the Turkish community as we build and encourage the church in France.
