Texas team in Turkey
cover
GARY SMITH (right) of Texas Baptist Men examines destruction in Turkey caused by a massive earthquake Aug. 17. He is guided by Sahin Bostanci, a Turkish relief worker and architect. Looking at fallen minaret towers, Bostanci said, “People around here say these came down because of God. No, this was man’s work.” International authorities have said much of the devastation was caused by inferior building construction. Texas Baptists are working alongside other relief agencies to bring hope to the thousands of Turks left homeless by the quake. (BP photo)
