Producing Christian Truth in a Dark Place

[265] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Christian literature producers.

A group of Turkish believers who produce Christian literature ask for prayer as they operate in Turkey’s tense climate for believers. After nine years of publishing a theological magazine, “we are still able to do our job in this dark atmosphere,” they wrote. A reader, Tolga, wrote to tell the group the difference the magazine made in his life. Tolga lived a life of crime and drugs growing up and was constantly in and out of jail. In prison, he heard about “missionaries” who spy on Turkish people, and it made him curious. He covered his face and snuck into a church to get a Bible. In 2018, he subscribed to the Christian magazine to help him understand the Christian faith more fully; now he belongs to Christ and is saved. The believers who create the Christian magazine ask for prayer that they will be able to continue producing it. They also plan to produce content for the growing number of those living in Turkey who speak Persian. “Pray that the hearts of the people we reach would be open to the Lord,” they wrote. “Our aim is only to serve the gospel.”
