5) You Can Be A Missionary At Home —

Most Turks are Muslims and have never heard the message of salvation. Only one in 900,000 is a Christian. However, by sending Gospel Letters prepared in their language you can reach Turks in their own nation, Northern Cyprus, Bulgaria and Western Europe.

The letters explain the way of salvation in terms that Muslims understand, and point them to Christian resources in their own language. Those who respond are followed-up by dedicated Christian workers. To date, hundreds of Turks have turned to Christ after receiving one of these letters. In fact, as many as 13 baptisms a week have been reported.

If you choose to become a Gospel Letter Volunteer, your role will be to provide your own postage and envelopes and to address, pray over and mail ten Turkish letters a month. To learn more, contact Steve
