Ministry Prayer Needs

New Outreach: Turkey
The country we know as Turkey was once home to the Constantine, the first Christian ruler of the Roman Empire. Today Turkey is a secular republic governed by a constitution that recognizes no official religion and guarantees freedom of religion and conscience. And although 99.8 percent of Turkey's people are registered as Muslims, it is estimated that just 10 to 15 percent of Turkey's people actively practice Islam. Since Turkey has a population of 80 million, the Turkish people are sometimes referred to as the world's largest unreached people group. In October, Lutheran Hour Ministries initiated outreach activities in Turkey with media programming and print content; LHM is now building partnerships with Christian organizations in Turkey and recruiting indigenous leaders to staff its ministry center. Please ask God to bless the work of LHM in this challenging field.
