For many years Turkey has hosted more refugees than any other nation in the world. But this situation is not seen as sustainable for Turkey resulting in a government crackdown on refugees and foreigners in general. In 2022 more than 45,000 Afghan refugees were deported back to Afghanistan, and Syrian refugees are finding their options dwindling. Even international missionaries are finding that their visas are not being renewed as each region of Turkey has been asked to reduce the number of foreigners living there. Pray for a way through this current crisis that brings life for Turkey and the refugees and expatriates that live there (The Bible, Philippians 3:20).
