10/8 Two nights later we moved into the Belogu neighborhood where we heard raucous music playing through the night in our room a little bigger than our bed. This did not help our recovery from jet-lag. It was saturday when we stumbled on the Bible Society bookstore and met Zackie who directed us to the service at The River in Istanbul. We missed the Sunday service but had an awesome time ourselves in worship and the Word. We continued to meet with Zackie and his acquaintences daily and finally attended the Wed. night service at The River. The Holy Spirit showed up in a mighty way and the pastors there gave us other contacts to continue in the flow. So this neighborhood of sin became for us a place where the Holy Ghost was moving mightily. We moved from Chillout Cengo Hostel to The Galata West Hostel just adjacent to the Galata Tower in the Sushane neighborhood. This became our favorite hostel whose penthouse cafeteria and kitchen overlooked the Golden Horn tributary and the Sultanhamet; the view was awesome and we didn’t need to sleep in our protective bedsheets.
