Please pray for Turkey. We have young families that are raising support to go there as missionaries.
Please pray for these families as they raise support to plant churches in Turkey.
Pray for Brady and Sarah Van Winkle. You can find more information about them by clicking this link.
Pray for Dustin and Ashley Brown as they raise support to plant churches in Turkey. Also pray for Ashley in the loss of her mother. Her mother was saved but of course there is still great pain in the loss of a loved one. Pray for them as they are with family during the funeral this week.
ISTANBUL—Gunshots were fired at the U.S. embassy in Ankara on Monday, causing no injuries but highlighting rising anti-American sentiment in Turkey as relations sour between the countries.
Six shots were fired from a vehicle driving past the embassy at 5.30 a.m., according to Turkish authorities. The initial findings showed three bullets hit a gate and a window, authorities said, adding they had launched a probe into the incident.
The U.S. administration wants Turkey to free the pastor, Andrew Brunson, who was detained nearly two years ago on terrorism and espionage charges, and has threatened more sanctions until he is allowed to return home. U.S. officials have said the trial of Mr. Brunson, who denies the charges, was tantamount to hostage taking.
