Turkey remains the largest unreached nations in the world. For over 1,000 years it was the bastion of Christianity, but over the years it has become a strong propagation of Islam. Today as few as .03% of the population are Bible believing Christians, and very few of the 66 million Muslims have ever heard the gospel, yet God's hand remains on Turkey and His Word is penetrating the nation. In 1960 Turkish believers numbered about 10, and now with the rise of the Church and the translation of a Turkish New Testament there are over 76 fellowships and 3,000 known believers. Yet a cultural barrier remains: to be Turkish is to be Muslim.
Pray that God would continue to rise up Turkish Believers even among the intimidation and persecution and pray that God would give strength and courage to those who already claim His truth. Pray for opportunities to share our faith with students hungry for the Truth and pray that our team would be a blessing the believers that we work with.
