The time is now to provide training materials to raise up and train Turkish church leaders and equip them to win their people to Christ – and even to raise up evangelists who will carry the Gospel even deeper into the vast Muslim world.
It is up to us to pray and provide: Pray for the church leaders in Turkey, and for laborers to go into the Harvest (Matt 9:37,38) – and provide them with valuable Christian training materials such asThe Shepherd’s Staff.
“Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!” May we heed these words of Jesus, working together to “gather fruit for eternal life” (John 4:35,36).
SERIOUS THREAT TO HARVEST?
A Recent Update
An Islamic fundamentalist political party swept to power in Turkey’s November 2002 elections, winning enough Parliament seats to swing the control of the government.
This could be an ominous sign of rising Islamic fervor in that hitherto moderate, Western-supporting nation.
Please pray that God will protect and strengthen Turkish believers. Pray that religious freedoms will not be diminished. Pray for Islam’s influence to be broken, and for the Gospel to spread throughout Turkey “as the waters cover the sea” (Hab 2:14).
