In Turkey, Islam and strong nationalism co-exist. Christians often feel pressured to stay silent in their faith. Outspoken believers can face discrimination in their workplace and in legal matters. Some are also falsely accused of crimes they didn’t commit. Although the marginalisation of Christians looks to be increasing, the Church in Turkey remains faithful and is growing stronger each day
Pray: That the Church continues to grow and remain strong even as persecution increases in Turkey.
