March reflections This month we are asked
to pray for Turkey where only a tiny number of the 80 million population are Christian. At the Bible book shop in Istanbul a huge Bible stands open in the window and people read it from the street. Eventually some will make their way into the shop where staff and volunteers are happy to speak with them.
In a troubled country it must seem like wandering in the wilderness, but we praise God for these glimpses of light in a region well-travelled by St Paul. Tarsus, his home, is in modern Turkey, and the early church was established here, for this is the country of the Galatians and the Ephesians.
As we travel through Lent let's take time to spare a thought for Bible Society's 8-member team as they serve God in this large country. DL
