Front-Line Worker Encouraged by Church Growth

[254] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Church planters seeing growth.

A believer working to plant churches in each of Turkey’s 81 provinces reports that three years of work is bearing fruit. A third church began services recently in one of Turkey’s major cities, and the first church planted there has grown from 10 members to nearly 100 in less than three years. The Christian worker also helped plant a church with a group of 20 people recently in a city of 500,000. “I’m really proud of them,” he said. “They are strong in their faith. They are ready to share and they are studying their Bible.” As this front-line worker reaches out to the Turkish people, he meets many young people who have become disillusioned with Islam and are turning to deism, making them more open to the gospel. Pray that new believers will remain grounded in faith as they face pressure from Turkey’s Muslim society and that more churches will be planted throughout the country.
