The term "Asia Minor" has
been used to describe the geographical area that roughly encompasses
modern-day Turkey. The shape of this area was once thought to be shaped
like a miniature of the whole continent of Asia and became known as Asia
Minor.. The Roman province of Bithynia was located in northwestern Asia
The Holy Spirit told the
Apostle Paul not to go to Bithynia. When he and his companions had gone
through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy
Spirit to preach the Word in Asia. After they had come to Mysia, they
tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them. (Acts
16:6-7) Later Paul was allowed to go into Bithynia.
Although the Holy Spirit would not allow Paul at that time to travel into
Bithynia, the United States Air Force sent me there in 1961.
In the summer of 1993, almost

wonders of this ancient land. It was very exciting for me to share this
country with my wife and to relive the memories of my time there three
