Pastor Brunson, who was released last year after two years in a Turkish prison, testified at the US Commission on International Religious Freedom saying he expects darker days ahead for Christians in Turkey. Even now the government doesn’t allow training programs for national church leaders to be developed within Turkey. This means foreign missionaries often lead Turkish churches and they are susceptible to being deported from the country. The need to see an increase in trained Turkish pastors and teachers is important.

Pray for wisdom to know how to see this happen (The Bible, Ephesians 4:11-13).
