Turks of Istanbul, Turkey

(is-tan-BULL) – New Year’s Day is always a big celebration for Turks. They are excited for the promise of a new start and hopeful for change. Pray that this year, they will have a chance to hear the offer of a new life and eternal hope found in a Christ. Pray that their hearts will be softened to understand the truth of 2 Corinthians 5:17 (CSB): “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come!”
