Miracles Do Happen To Ordinary People Too !
Askin Ozcan relates thirty stunning miraculous incidents from his life in different countries, in his book "SMALL MIRACLES" ( ISBN 1598001000 - Outskirts Press )
With his last crown in his pocket, Askin Ozcan wins in the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, a big cheese wheel, which helps to pay his debts to his host family. The next day, he miraculously finds work and obtains a work permit the same day - an unbelievable series of events.
In Turkey, in his military service in the east, he draws in the lottery, the only village accessible by car, while eighty six other teacher officers are sent to villages on horse and mule back. Astonishing incidents cause him to be transferred to a touristic resort in the west - a pure miracle!
After his military service, miracles continue in his life. He finds a dream job in London, as the manager of a small travel agency specialising in travel to Turkey. Again as a miracle,
he meets his class friend from Turkey, in Piccadilly Circus. He meets a delightful French girl in London, whom he looses, but finds, as a miracle, later, in a small hotel.
He returns to Turkey, after a year in London. Then, another miracle happens and he meets
an American in his week-end trip to a village in Bulgaria, which results in his coming to Cambridge, Massachussetts with a business project.
Miracles follow one another in his life in Cambridge, Massachussetts. On his girl friend's
birthday, he finds a parcel when his cheque is not accepted to buy a present for her.
On the Christmas day, a miracle brings him and his girl friend together, after they have broken off their friendship for a while.
Unable to extend his visa in the U.S.A., he passes to Canada as an immigrant. Miracles help him continue his architectural studies at the University of Toronto.
Before his graduation, a miracle brings him very close to making $ Can. 200.000 , with his saved $ 1000, but he can not take advantage of that.
Life brings him to Sweden where he finds, again, as a miracle, his life time's job. Many miracles happen in his life in Sweden which will astonish the reader. "Two Spectacles In The Sky" is an indisputable miracle. "The Pillow" is a suspensful story how his life is saved in an excursion to Finland, where he shares a cabin with a drunk passenger.
The book is full of unique adventures, true stories of big and small miracles, which author Askin Ozcan admits their being the acts and proofs of God.
