As we continue to see the fighting progress, we should be reminded about the great need of the gospel both in Syria and in Turkey. Pray for those who have been misplaced because of all the conflict, pray for there to be a peaceful settlement soon and pray that instead of more conflict in Syria, there will be open doors for the gospel to go forward. Pray for more open doors in Turkey to reach not only Turks but also Syrian refugees that are here and that as people are concerned about war that it will open more doors for gospel conversations in Turkey.
