Calvary Christian Church

Turkey

There is a great risk to life and wellbeing to be a missionary in Muslim controlled Turkey. The government imposes limitations on religious groups and there are restrictions on evangelism or holding unauthorized meetings. Often there are reports of discrimination based on religious belief. Violent attacks and threats create an atmosphere of pressure and uncertainty for non-Muslims. Converts to Christ from Islam face social harassment and violence from relatives and neighbors.

Because of the sensitive and dangerous nature of evangelizing in this country we do not release the name or specifics of our missionary living and working in Turkey. Their missionary work is done through meeting with and encouraging the new converts and known believers, and evangelizing through personal contacts and building friendships. Please pray for the work of Lord in Turkey and for wisdom and protection for those who serve the people of Turkey as missionaries.
