SONICFLOOd and Compassion International Team up in Spring

Published: 2006-01-24
SONICFLOOd were drawn to international travel during the past year, in fact they visited and performed in five countries around the world, the final of which was Turkey this past December. Turkey is a country where about 99% are Muslim, frontman Rick Heil says of the unique opportunity, "Turkey has approximately 71 million people in it, of the population only 2,200 people profess to have a saving faith in Jesus Christ. Each time we played, I knew we were combating a spiritual force that had led so many astray for so long. After my short visit however, I felt that the young Church in Turkey was a strong and tenacious like a bulldog." While in Turkey the band even made history by playing at one of the top clubs in Europe, being the first Christian concert at a secular venue in modern Turkish history.

Guitarist Trey Hill says of the people, "We were touched by stories of their trials and triumphs, and how the people of the country are responsing [in a positive way] to the GospelÖit inspired me to encourage my fellow Christians in the US to unite."

SONICFLOOd are using the footage they taped of the people in Turkey for their new music video, "This Generation" as they go on tour with Compassion International this spring traveling around Europe until the Fall when they will tour to promote mission efforts with the Southern Baptist Convention's International Mission Board (IMB).
