Please pray that the European Baptists would be able to secure resources to enable the Turkish Baptist churches to continue to respond to the needs of refugees as part of their witness to the Gospel, and for Rupen Das as he discerns how to continue to mentor the team there. Thousands of refugees from Syria reside in cities close to the border, in Turkey, and small churches have been working tirelessly to provide food and hygiene items and praying with those in need. In many of the families the men were back in Syria while the families are seeking safety in Turkey. Due to government restrictions they are unable to do evangelism or distribute literature. However, Turkish Baptists are growing in number, and it can only be attributed to the work of the Holy Spirit. Continue to pray for Baptist churches across Europe as they help the refugees in the face of growing hatred towards foreigners. Pray that they would be able to demonstrate the reality of the Kingdom of God as they try to live in obedience to God and His Word.
