Our main focus of the week was to film and photograph the talks happening in and around the city held by RZIM featuring Os Guinness. Os is an established english author and social critic. We attended many talks and events which were held by RZIM and gathered a number of people from locals to people working in the city and students.
We also undertook a few interviews with some of the speakers and members of the public and organisers to get a different point of view on the event and any responses or thoughts. There was a theme surrounding ministry and outreach within the christian community in Turkey, so we wanted to get peoples opinions and ideas. Os Guinness was great to interview as we were able to further a lot of the discussions and go deeper into what he wants to see happen in Istanbul for the future, it was a great insight.
We ended the week short due to issues surrounding the country at that time but we were well looked after by Sanem. She is an inspiring woman and was refreshing to her passion for her work and love for her country.
The experience was very interesting and to learn about the culture and the issues the country is facing. We loved working with RZIM and I hope to work with them in the near future.
