My name is Eliza Klaski, I am 20 years old and I am currently living overseas as a worker in Türkiye! I am part of a team here that is living and becoming a part of the community in which we have relocated and planted roots.
The nation I am living in is what is known as a closed nation, meaning that it is not open to the good news. For that reason what I am writing here may sound vague, but I will do my best to explain it to you. In 2021, I visited Türkiye and absolutely fell in love with it. The people stole my heart and I longed to return for the next two years.
Relationships, community, and family are all so important here, and those are things that I love. I have always found it easier to connect with people as their friend and confidant than as a stranger. This all goes hand in hand so well, and that is what the focus of my time here is. For my first two years my biggest focus is learning the language with the goal of fluency and communication in order to be able to reach and connect with more people.
The Lord has so much in store for this nation and this people, and I know that this is where I am supposed to be. I am beyond excited to be able to be a part of the way He is moving in this city and in this nation.
I am very thankful for those of you that are supporting me from home, because without you I could not be here, being obedient to what the Lord is doing.
