A Christian Scientist’s life in Turkey

From the July 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Gloria Onyuru moved from the United States to Turkey in 1966 and has lived there ever since. She and I exchanged emails about her life in Turkey, how she has found a way to practice Christian Science in that country, and how she has been inspired to pray about the current tensions in the Middle East.

As a Christian Scientist born and raised in the United States, how did you come to live in Turkey, and how has living there shaped you spiritually?

Love brought me to Turkey. I met my husband, a Turkish national, at a university in St. Louis, Missouri, in the United States, which we were both attending. We decided to get married, and in 1966 we moved to Turkey permanently, bringing with us our first son, who was less than a year old at the time.
