Building up people, building up nations
Working for over 25 years in the Middle East, Drs. Evan and Mary Jane Edwards founded ASLAN International. Feeding the poor, distributing over half a million New Testaments and Bibles, opening Prayer and Crisis Hotlines in four cities – this is the heartbeat of ASLAN International. In spite of numerous arrests – now the Turkish Religious Affairs Department has called it one of the foremost strategies, and one of the well-known Christian services in Turkey. Over 1000 national newspaper articles have been written about the ministry work in Turkey, and most recently a Warner Brothers movie. The books, “It’s a Happy Life” and “Purely Joy” tell the stories behind the scenes of the work ASLAN International in Turkey. Loving the poor, training nationals, planting churches, transformed lives, is all a part of ASLAN’s work in the nation of Turkey. Together with you – our aim is to demonstrate compassion, mercy, and a passion for people.
