Lutfu Kerem is a Muslim background believer from Turkey who has been passionately sharing his faith with his people since he surrendered his life to Jesus in 2011. Joy grew up in a Christian homeschooling family in Florida and moved to Turkey to serve as a missionary in 2010.
Lutfu Kerem and Joy have been sharing the Gospel and planting churches together among Turkish speaking people since their marriage in 2013. After serving in Turkey for 7 years and working with 3 church plants, Turkey refused to renew Joy‘s visa because of their evangelistic work. God expanded their vision at that time to include reaching unreached Turkish speaking people in other parts of the world.
They have three beautiful children named Defne, David, and Mercy.
