Three killed at Turkish publisher 
 
The three victims were found tied up in the office
Three people have been killed at a publishing house in Turkey that produced bibles, in an apparent attack on the country's Christian minority.
The victims were discovered at the Zirve publishing house in the eastern city of Malatya.

They were bound hand and foot and their throats had been slit, officials said.

Nationalists had protested at the publishing house in the past, accusing it of involvement in missionary activities, local media reported.

There is a rising wave of nationalist feeling in Turkey, the BBC's Sarah Rainsford reports, with Christian minorities complaining of pressure and harassment.

In the most serious incident so far, a Catholic priest was killed last year by a teenage nationalist gunman as he prayed in his church.

'Brutal crime'

The general manager of the publishing house, Hamza Ozant, told local media that his employees had been threatened in recent days.

A number of men had been detained in connection with the attack, local officials said.

Television pictures showed police leading several young men from the building.

One of those killed in the attack was German, the country's ambassador said.

"Even if the exact circumstances of the crime are not yet known, I most strongly condemn this brutal crime," Eckart Cuntz said in a statement.

Malatya is known here as a very nationalistic city, often with an extreme religious undertone, our correspondent adds.

It is the hometown of Mehmet Ali Agca, who in 1981 shot Pope John Paul II.

Turkey's Christian community comprises less than 1% of its population. More than 99% of the Turkish population is Muslim.

Ja nüüd, kiri minu õelt:

Tere!!

Kindlasti olete kuulnud sündmustest, mis on toimunud Türgis, Malatya linnas. See uudis ületas isegi Eesti meediakünnisse.

Kuna olen olnud ise siin kohapeal, siis tahaks ka teile teada anda, kuidas need surmad on Jumalale au toonud.

Malatya linn asub Ida-Türgis. Sealne kogudus ja paljud kogudused üle Türgimaa on saanud eelnevalt mitmeid tapmisähvardusi. Koguduse maju on üritatud põlema panna ja kristlaste vastu on meedias laimu esitatud.

Sel nädalal tungisid 5 noort, kes õpivad ülikooli ettevalmistuskoolis, keskpäeval kristlikku trükikotta. Nad sidusid 3 venna käed ja jalad ning lõikasid neil kõrid läbi. Kaks olid kohalikud türklased, üks oli saksa misjonär. Tapjad selgitasid oma tegu nii: "Me tegime seda Allahi ja oma kodumaa nimel."

Kohalik meedia kajastas sündmust mitmekülgselt. Ühest küljest on see Türgile ebameeldiv sündmus, kuna see näitab Türgit maailmas barbaarse maana, kes pürgib EL-u.
Teisest küljest on siin paljusid, kes tapjatega nõus on. Nimelt on islami järgi nii, et islami usutaganeja on surma väärt ja need kaks türklast olid usutaganejad islamist kristlusesse.

Kõik kolm olid väga aktiivsed hea sõnumi levitajad. Just sellised, keda Türgile on vaja. Nende elud austasid Jumalat igal viisil. Nende kaudu tulid paljud elava Jumala juurde.

Koik olid uudisest rabatud.

Eile ilmusid intervjuud ohvrite abikaasadega koikides suuremates Türgi päevalehtedes. nende sõnum oli üks - ma olen andestanud tapjatele. Nii nagu Jeesus ristil rippudes palus oma Isalt andestust ristilööjatele, kuna nad ei teadnud , mida nad tegid, nõnda teatasid ka tapetute abikaasad , et nad on andestanud. Evangeeliumi sõnum on saanud kuulutatud üle kogu Türgimaa läbi meedia tänu sellele sündmusele.

Kuigi kõik kolm olid aktiivsed evangelistid, ei oleks nad iialgi suutnud ka kogu oma eluajal jõuda kogu Türgi rahvani. Nende surm on aga seda suutnud. Evangeelium on saanud kuulutatud läbi ajalehtede, Jumala armastus ja andeksandmine on saanud avalikuks. Jumala nimi on saanud väga austatud!! Me usume, et need surmad toovad esile suure ärkamise.

Palun palvetage tapetute perekondade eest.

Jumala ligiolu soovides,
levitage sõnumit,

Helen

Siin nüüd selle uudise tõlge.

Türgi kirjastuses tapeti kolm inimest

 Kirjastuse kontorist leiti kinniseotuna kolm mõrvatöö ohvrit.

Ühes Türgi piibleid trükkiva kirjastuse majas tapeti kolm inimest. See oli silmnähtav rünnak selle maa kristlastest vähemuse pihta. Ohvrid avastati Malatya linna "Zirve" kirjastuse hoonest.
 Nende käed ja jalad olid kinni seotud ja nende kõrid läbi lõigatud, oli ametlik teadaanne. Kohalik meedia annab teada, et natsionalistid olid ähvardanud kirjastust juba varem, süüdistades seda aktiivses misjonitöös.
Sarah Rainford BBCst räägib, et Türgis on tõusmas natsionalistlike tunnete laine, mis surveavalduste ja kiusuga protestib kristlastest vähemuse vastu.
Eelmisel aastal tappis üks teismeline natsionalist ühe katoliku preestri.

Brutaalne kuritegu

Kirjastuse juht Hamza Ozant rääkis kohalikus meedias, et tema alluvaid oli eelnevatel päevadel ähvardatud.
Kohalik ametivõim teatas, et on kinni peetud selle rünnakuga seotud grupp mehi.
Telepilt näitas, kuidas politsei viib majast välja mitut noort meest.
"Üks rünnakus tapetutest oli sakslane," ütles riigi suursaadik.
"Isegi kui kuritöö täpsed asjaolud pole veel teada, mõistan ma selle brutaalse kuriteo karmilt hukka," teatas Eckart Cuntz avalduses.
"Malatya on kohapeal tuntud kui väga natsionalistlik linn, mis on äärmusreligioosse tagapõhjaga," lisab meie korrespondent.
See on Mehmet Ali Agca kodulinn, kes tulistas 1981. aastal paavst Johannes Paulus Teist.
Türgi kristlaste kogukond on vähem kui 1% rahvastikust. Üle 99% Türgi rahvastikust on moslemid.

A letter to the Global Church from The Protestant Church of Smyrna

By Dan Wooding
Founder of ASSIST Ministries

SMYRNA, TURKEY (ANS) -- Smyrna is an ancient city (today known as Izmir in Turkey) that was founded at a very early period at a central and strategic point on the Aegean coast of Anatolia.

It was the second city to receive a letter from the apostle John in the book of Revelation. Acts 19:10 suggests that the church there was founded during Paul's third missionary journey. Due to the fact that the port city of Izmir houses the second largest population in Turkey today, the site of ancient Smyrna has been little excavated. Excepting the agora, theater, and sections of the Roman aqueduct, little remains of the ancient city.

But there is a protestant church in there that calls itself "The Protestant Church of Smyrna" and it has issued the following letter to the Global Church which was sent to ANS.

Here it is in its entirety:

Dear friends,

This past week has been filled with much sorrow. Many of you have heard by now of our devastating loss here in an event that took place in Malatya, a Turkish province 300 miles northeast of Antioch, the city where believers were first called Christians (Acts 11:26).

On Wednesday morning, April 18, 2007, 46 year old German missionary and father of three Tilman Geske prepared to go to his office, kissing his wife goodbye taking a moment to hug his son and give him the priceless memory, "Goodbye, son. I love you."

Tilman rented an office space from Zirve Publishing where he was preparing notes for the new Turkish Study Bible. Zirve was also the location of the Malatya Evangelist Church office. A ministry of the church, Zirve prints and distributes Christian literature to Malatya and nearby cities in Eastern Turkey. In another area of town, 35 year old Pastor Necati Aydin, father of two, said goodbye to his wife, leaving for the office as well. They had a morning Bible Study and prayer meeting that some other believers in town would also be attending. Ugur Yuksel likewise made his way to the Bible study.

None of these three men knew that what awaited them at the Bible study was the ultimate testing and application of their faith, which would conclude with their entrance into glory to receive their crown of righteousness from Christ and honor from all the saints awaiting them in the Lord's presence.

On the other side of town, ten young men all under 20 years old put into place final arrangements for their ultimate act of faith, living out their love for Allah and hatred of infidels who they felt undermined Islam.

On Resurrection Sunday, five of these men had been to a by-invitation-only evangelistic service that Pastor Necati and his men had arranged at a hotel conference room in the city. The men were known to the believers as "seekers." No one knows what happened in the hearts of those men as they listened to the gospel. Were they touched by the Holy Spirit? Were they convicted of sin? Did they hear the gospel in their heart of hearts? Today we only have the beginning of their story.

These young men, one of whom is the son of a mayor in the Province of Malatya, are part of a tarikat, or a group of "faithful believers" in Islam. Tarikat membership is highly respected here; it's like a fraternity membership. In fact, it is said that no one can get into public office without membership in a tarikat. These young men all lived in the same dorm, all preparing for university entrance exams.

The young men got guns, bread knives, ropes and towels ready for their final act of service to Allah. They knew there would be a lot of blood. They arrived in time for the Bible Study, around 10 o'clock.

They arrived, and apparently the Bible Study began. Reportedly, after Necati read a chapter from the Bible the assault began. The boys tied Ugur, Necati, and Tilman's hands and feet to chairs and as they videoed their work on their cellphones, they tortured our brothers for almost three hours*

[Details of the torture--
* Tilman was stabbed 156 times, Necati 99 times and Ugur's stabs were too numerous to count. They were disemboweled, and their intestines sliced up in front of their eyes. They were emasculated and watched as those body parts were destroyed. Fingers were chopped off, their noses and mouths and anuses were sliced open. Possibly the worst part was watching as their brothers were likewise tortured. Finally, their throats were sliced from ear to ear, heads practically decapitated.]

Neighbors in workplaces near the print house said later they had heard yelling, but assumed the owners were having a domestic argument so they did not respond.

Meanwhile, another believer Gokhan and his wife had a leisurely morning. He slept in till 10, ate a long breakfast and finally around 12:30 he and his wife arrived at the office. The door was locked from the inside, and his key would not work. He phoned and though it had connection on his end he did not hear the phone ringing inside. He called cell phones of his brothers and finally Ugur answered his phone. "We are not at the office. Go to the hotel meeting. We are there. We will come there," he said cryptically. As Ugur spoke Gokhan heard in the telephone's background weeping and a strange snarling sound.

He phoned the police, and the nearest officer arrived in about five minutes. He pounded on the door, "Police, open up!" Initially the officer thought it was a domestic disturbance. At that point they heard another snarl and a gurgling moan. The police understood that sound as human suffering, prepared the clip in his gun and tried over and over again to burst through the door. One of the frightened assailants unlocked the door for the policeman, who entered to find a grisly scene.

Tilman and Necati had been slaughtered, practically decapitated with their necks slit from ear to ear. Ugur's throat was likewise slit and he was barely alive.

Three assailants in front of the policeman dropped their weapons.

Meanwhile Gokhan heard a sound of yelling in the street. Someone had fallen from their third story office. Running down, he found a man on the ground, whom he later recognized, named Emre Gunaydin. He had massive head trauma and, strangely, was snarling. He had tried to climb down the drainpipe to escape, and losing his balance had plummeted to the ground. It seems that he was the main leader of the attackers. Another assailant was found hiding on a lower balcony.

To untangle the web we need to back up six years. In April 2001, the National Security Council of Turkey (Milli Guvenlik Kurulu) began to consider evangelical Christians as a threat to national security, on equal footing as Al Quaida and PKK terrorism. Statements made in the press by political leaders, columnists and commentators have fueled a hatred against missionaries who they claim bribe young people to change their religion.

After that decision in 2001, attacks and threats on churches, pastors and Christians began. Bombings, physical attacks, verbal and written abuse are only some of the ways Christians are being targeted. Most significant is the use of media propaganda.

From December 2005, after having a long meeting regarding the Christian threat, the wife of Former Prime Minister Ecevit, historian Ilber Ortayli, Professor Hasan Unsal, Politician Ahmet Tan and writer/propogandist Aytunc Altindal, each in their own profession began a campaign to bring the public's attention to the looming threat of Christians who sought to "buy their children's souls". Hidden cameras in churches have taken church service footage and used it sensationally to promote fear and antagonism toward Christianity.

In an official televised response from Ankara, the Interior Minister of Turkey smirked as he spoke of the attacks on our brothers. Amid public outrage and protests against the event and in favor of freedom of religion and freedom of thought, media and official comments ring with the same message, "We hope you have learned your lesson. We do not want Christians here."

...

It appears that this was an organized attack initiated by an unknown adult tarikat leader. As in the Hrant Dink murder in January 2007, and a Catholic priest Andrea Santoro in February 2006, minors are being used to commit religious murders because public sympathy for youth is strong and they face lower penalties than an adult convicted of the same crime. Even the parents of these children are in favor of the acts. The mother of the 16 year old boy who killed the Catholic priest Andrea Santoro looked at the cameras as her son was going to prison and said, "He will serve time for Allah."

The young men involved in the killing are currently in custody. Today news reported that they would be tried as terrorists, so their age would not affect the strict penalty. Assailant Emre Gunaydin is still in intensive care. The investigation centers around him and his contacts and they say will fall apart if he does not recover.

The Church in Turkey responded in a way that honored God as hundreds of believers and dozens of pastors flew in as fast as they could to stand by the small church of Malatya and encourage the believers, take care of legal issues, and represent Christians to the media.

When Susanne Tilman expressed her wish to bury her husband in Malatya, the Governor tried to stop it, and when he realized he could not stop it, a rumor was spread that "it is a sin to dig a grave for a Christian." In the end, in an undertaking that should be remembered in Christian history forever, the men from the church in Adana (near Tarsus), grabbed shovels and dug a grave for their slain brother in an un-tended hundred year old Armenian graveyard.

Ugur was buried by his family in an Alevi Muslim ceremony in his hometown of Elazig, his believing fiancé watching from the shadows as his family and friends refused to accept in death the faith Ugur had so long professed and died for.

Necati's funeral took place in his hometown of Izmir, the city where he came to faith. The darkness does not understand the light. Though the churches expressed their forgiveness for the event, Christians were not to be trusted. Before they would load the coffin onto the plane from Malatya, it went through two separate xray exams to make sure it was not loaded with explosives. This is not a usual procedure for Muslim coffins.

Necati's funeral was a beautiful event. Like a glimpse of heaven, thousands of Turkish Christians and missionaries came to show their love for Christ, and their honor for this man chosen to die for Christ. Necati's wife Shemsa told the world, "His death was full of meaning, because he died for Christ and he lived for Christ. Necati was a gift from God. I feel honored that he was in my life, I feel crowned with honor. I want to be worthy of that honor."

Boldly the believers took their stand at Necati's funeral, facing the risks of being seen publicly and likewise becoming targets. As expected, the anti-terror police attended and videotaped everyone attending the funeral for their future use. The service took place outside at Buca Baptist church, and he was buried in a small Christian graveyard in the outskirts of Izmir.

Two assistant Governors of Izmir were there solemnly watching the event from the front row. Dozens of news agencies were there documenting the events with live news and photographs. Who knows the impact the funeral had on those watching? This is the beginning of their story as well. Pray for them.

In an act that hit front pages in the largest newspapers in Turkey, Susanne Tilman in a television interview expressed her forgiveness. She did not want revenge, she told reporters. "Oh God, forgive them for they know not what they do," she said, wholeheartedly agreeing with the words of Christ on Calvary (Luke 23:34).

In a country where blood-for-blood revenge is as normal as breathing, many many reports have come to the attention of the church of how this comment of Susanne Tilman has changed lives. One columnist wrote of her comment, "She said in one sentence what 1000 missionaries in 1000 years could never do."

The missionaries in Malatya will most likely move out, as their families and children have become publicly identified as targets to the hostile city. The remaining 10 believers are in hiding. What will happen to this church, this light in the darkness? Most likely it will go underground. Pray for wisdom, that Turkish brothers from other cities will go to lead the leaderless church. Should we not be concerned for that great city of Malatya, a city that does not know what it is doing? (Jonah 4:11)

When our Pastor Fikret Bocek went with a brother to give a statement to the Security Directorate on Monday they were ushered into the Anti-Terror Department. On the wall was a huge chart covering the whole wall listing all the terrorist cells in Izmir, categorized. In one prominent column were listed all the evangelical churches in Izmir. The darkness does not understand the light. "These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also." (Acts 17:6)

Please pray for the Church in Turkey. "Don't pray against persecution, pray for perseverance," urges Pastor Fikret Bocek.

The Church is better having lost our brothers; the fruit in our lives, the renewed faith, the burning desire to spread the gospel to quench more darkness in Malatya .all these are not to be regretted. Pray that we stand strong against external opposition and especially pray that we stand strong against internal struggles with sin, our true debilitating weakness.

This we know. Christ Jesus was there when our brothers were giving their lives for Him. He was there, like He was when Stephen was being stoned in the sight of Saul of Tarsus.

Someday the video of the deaths of our brothers may reveal more to us about the strength that we know Christ gave them to endure their last cross, about the peace the Spirit of God endowed them with to suffer for their beloved Savior. But we know He did not leave their side. We know their minds were full of Scripture strengthening them to endure, as darkness tried to subdue the un-subduable Light of the Gospel. We know, in whatever way they were able, with a look or a word, they encouraged one another to stand strong. We know they knew they would soon be with Christ.

We don't know the details. We don't know the kind of justice that will or will not be served on this earth.

But we pray-- and urge you to pray-- that someday at least one of those five boys will come to faith because of the testimony in death of Tilman Geske, who gave his life as a missionary to his beloved Turks, and the testimonies in death of Necati Aydin and Ugur Yuksel, the first martyrs for Christ out of the Turkish Church.

Reported by Darlene N. Bocek (24 April 2007)

Note from the church: Please pass this on to as many praying Christians as you can, in as many countries as you can. Please always keep the heading as "From the Protestant Church of Smyrna" with this contact information: http://www.izmirprotestan.org

Veel üks versioon juhtunust:
Siin väidetakse, et on liikvel andmed (näiteks eelnev ingliskeelne postitus siin), mis liialdavad märtrite kannatuste kirjeldamisel. Tuuakse ära mõne tunnistaja kirjeldused, et ei olnud näiteks niipalju haavu. Oletatakse, et moslemid liialdasid koleduste kirjeldamisega, et kristlasi hirmutada ja/või võivad soovida pärast kristlasi valeinfo levitamises süüdistada.. Ei taheta vähendada nende märtristaatust, vaid täpsustada fakte, et ka sellega tõde teenida.
------
From: Ahmet Guvener, pastor of Diyarbakir Church
 
30 April 2007                  Diyarbakir, Turkey
 
Dear brothers and sisters,
 
I greet you in the peace and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
May the Lord abundantly bless you, your families, your churches, and our work.
We know and appreciate very much your heart for us.
 
Brothers and sisters, in the last ten days we have experienced very painful moments, which words cannot begin to express. Our painful experience has shown us that our lives are as the Lord describes: "What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes."; For this reason we have understood one more time how holy and close to the Lord we should live our lives.
We have also understood that our society is easily given to emotion and that in such painful moments some people, whether intentionally or not, report certain events inaccurately and we have not prevented this or have not been able to do so.
When the Malatya massacre happened we, the brothers from Diyarbakir, besides those already on the scene at the time of the crime, were the first to get there. When we got to Malatya our brother Ugur was still alive, but his condition was critical. Around 5:30 PM Ugur entrusted his spirit to the Lord.
 
Dear brothers and sisters, that painful moment has slowly come into perspective for us so that now we have begun to see some things as we should. For example, it appears that those who murdered or arranged for the murder of these brothers are getting what they hoped for. By means of our reactions we may unwittingly help them. If we do not bring the facts into the light, these people will end up getting what they desired.
Brothers Tilmann, Necati, and Ugur were murdered in a bloodthirsty way. This is a fact. But there are also some inaccurate claims about this massacre and one of these is the extent of the torture. According to rumors brother Tilmann was stabbed with a knife 156 times. Brother Ugur had countless knife wounds, it has been said. These rumors, however, are unfounded. At the morgue we wanted to put brother Tilmann's body, which was in a plastic bag, into the coffin, but the officials and police did not like this. "It is sinful to do it this way, we should wrap the corpse in a shroud," they said. I accepted this idea and did what was right in their eyes. I asked them for a shroud (white cloth) and the officials moved Tilmann's body out of the plastic bag, which they placed to the side. I took advantage of this opportunity to examine brother Tilmann's body as far down as his stomach. I did not see any knife wounds. Only Tilmann's throat had been slit 8-10 centimeters and there was the stitched autopsy incision down the middle of Tilmann's chest. Unfortunately there are very different rumors circulating about brothers Tilmann and Necati. It has been said that their noses, lips, and ears were cut. These rumors do not reflect the truth. I telephoned our brother Ed Grudier in Adana because I knew he had seen brother Tilmann's body. I asked him about the knife wounds on brother Tilmann's body. Ed said to me, "Brother, I came across three or four knife blows in the chest area. I didn't see his back. On his face I can't say there were knife wounds, but scratches, maybe from hitting his face when he fell down."  I knew that Ihsan Ozbek from Ankara had seen bodies. I asked him which bodies he had seen and he said, "I saw the chest area of both Tilmann and Necati. I saw purple [from bruising] on Necati's lips and chin, but I did not see knife wounds. I looked at brother Tilmann's chest, but I did not see knife wounds." These are the statments of those you saw the bodies of these two brothers.
 
It is true that our brothers were knifed and tortured. But it was not to the extent of statements such as "too many wounds to count, beyond description." Apparently Ed Grudier looked more carefully than brother Ihsan and I did. Ed saw three or four knife wounds in the chest.
No one saw brother Ugur's body because on the night of the same day the murder happened, around midnight, his family took his body for burial.
I believe that brother Ugur had knife wounds similar to those of our other two brothers. It has been said that Ugur was stabbed all over his body, including his genitals. I do not believe this. You may ask why I don't beleive this. I think someone stabbed this much would die on the spot. Ugur would not have been able to remain alive until 5:30 PM if he had been stabbed so much. That nothing abnormal happened to Ugur can be understood [from the fact that] exaggerated statements have been about our other two brothers, too.
 
Therefore we reach the following conclusion: yes, these brothers were tortured, but not to the extent that has been explained.
We are sons and daughters of the truth. Unfortunately unfounded news reports and media exaggerations have now gone out all over the world. Our brothers and sisters and people sensitive [to such news] have been misinformed. We do not intend to offend anyone. But whether the true facts are, let us report them without exaggeration. Let people everywhere think about the plain facts.
Who started these exaggerated facts [about the Malatya massacre]?
We purpose two possibilities:
1)   Those who perpetrated the crime planned this [the spreading of exaggerated facts] from the beginning and the murderers were simply tools for these people [who had planned to blow the murder into exaggerated proportions]. The goal of those who planned this murder and the exaggerated claims was both to frighten the Christians living in Turkey, causing them to shrink back and be timid, and to humiliate
Turkey as a country that invites and causes such bloodthirty massacre, thereby damaging Turkey’s chances of entering the European Union and making matters worse in the country. Furthermore, [the planners of this massacre] wanted to give the government and our people the impression that Christians distort and exaggerate everything.
2)   In every situation we see that the media either totally disregards something we say or totally exploits it. We investigated the bloody clothing that was submitted to the public as the underclothing of our brothers. None of this clothing belonged to our brothers. That clothing had been taken off the bodies of people shot to death weeks earlier.
But what did the media do? They took this clothing and presented it as freshly removed from the bodies of our brothers. Is there anyone who does not yet know about the exaggerations and sometimes boldfaced lies if the media?
 
Therefore, brothers and sisters, if we do not explain the true facts to you our hearts will not find peace. I have written this report because I have read exaggerated or unfounded facts in news both home and abroad. The true facts are those in this report. Before sending these facts to you, as you will see below, I have requested statements from our brothers Ihsan Ozbek and Ed Grudier. I have had these statments translated from English in order to pass them on to you.
 
May the Lord bless you abundantly.
 
Ahmet Guvener, pastor of Diyarbakir Church
 
Brother Ihsan Ozbek's remarks:
Brother Ahmet,
Your report of my testimony is entirely accurate. I have no problem with anything else you have written in this report.Thank you for writing this report. It would be good for everybody to read what you have written.
Peace,
Ihsan Ozbek
 
Brother Ed Grudier's remarks:
Brother Ahmet,
Thank you for writing this report. It is necessary for wrong information to be corrected.Everything you have written is correct.
May the peace of the Lord be with you,
Ed
 
Zekai Tanyar's remarks:
Dear Ahmet,
I cannot make any firsthand comments on the subject. But I have spoken in person with Necati and Tilmann's wives, Semsa and Susanne. Their impressions link up best with yours.Unfounded exaggerations about the wounds and torture are circulating
and apparently some brothers and sisters, still affected by the shock of the massacre, are repeating these exaggerations to others everywhere. This is unfortunate.
The report that you have prepared in order to correct wrong information has been done well and at the first opportunity should be sent to all interested people at home and abroad.
Peace,
Zekai

TÜRGI PALVEPÄEV

18.04.2011 toimub juba neljandat korda ülemaailme Türgi eest palvetamise päev. Neli aastat tagasi, 18.04.2007,  tapeti Malatyas sel päeval kolm venda, kellest said modernse Türgi esimesed märtrid. Kuivõrd 18.04 langeb sel aastal esmaspäeva peale, siis oleks hea võimalus Türgi eest palvetamiseks pühapäeval, 17. aprillil.
 
Rohkem infot palvepäeva kohta leiad www.prayforturkey.com. Samas on võimalik ka alla laadida kolmeminutiline Türgit tutvustav video nii inglise kui ka vene keeles.
 
Hea uudis Türgi kohta: kui veel 5 aastat tagasi oli mõtegi ühe türklase kristlusesse pöördumisest täielik tabu ning avalik solvang oma maa, rahva ja perekonna vastu, siis nüüdseks on asjad veidi muutunud. Paljud pastorid ja kogudusejuhid tunnistavad, et on tunda Püha Vaimu tööd ühel uuel ja erilisel viisil.

Saadan edasi ka Türgi Evangeelsete Koguduste Allianssi läkituse, mille võib pühapäeval koguduses ette lugeda ja eestpalvesoovid:

Kristuse Ihult Türgis oma pühadele ja ustavatele vendadele ja õdedele Kristuses üle kogu maailma, armu ja rahu teile Jumalalt, meie Isalt ja Issandalt Jeesuselt Kristuselt.

Me kirjutame teile Türgist – Noa, Abrahami, Pauluse, Ararati mäe ja Haarani, Antiookia,
Efesose, Galaatia ja Ilmutuse raamatu seitsme koguduse maalt..... Siiski tänapäeval on
meie maal elamas 72 miljoni hulgas, kellest 99,8 % on moslemid, vaid käputäis kristlast.
Me kirjutame, et paluda teil palvetada.
Türgi kristlastena armastame oma maad väga. Palvetage, et Jumala tahe sünniks ja Tema
kuningriik toimiks! Palvetage, et Issanda käsi oleks meiega ja et paljud usuksid ja
pöörduksid Issanda poole.
Meie, Türgi kristlased, palume ülemaailmsel kogudusel palvetada meie maa ja türgi
koguduse pärast. Me palume, et teie kogudus võiks ühineda nende miljonite
palvetajatega, kes palvetavad üle maailma. 18. aprillil 2007 aastal mõrvati kolm venda
brutaalselt nende usu pärast, nendest said modernse Türgi esimesed märtrid.
Me palvetame teie eest ja palume, et Jumal täidaks teid oma tahte mõistmisega läbi
kõiksugu vaimuliku tarkuse ja arusaamisega. Ja me anume teid vennad ........ palvetage
meie eest!
Olgu rahu Jumal teie kõikidega. Aamen.
2 Kor 1:11
„kui ühtlasi ka teie appi tulete palves meie eest, et paljude isikute käest meie heaks tulnud
armuanni eest tõuseks tänu paljude suust meie eest.“

Globaalne Türgi eest palvetamise päev – 18. aprill
Siin on mõned näpunäited, mis võiks sind juhtida palvetamises Türgi eest. Kui Jumal juhib sind palvetama teistel teemadel, siis ole vaba ja tee seda.

1. Palun palveta üldiselt õnnistust ja rahu Türgile, kuna Issanda tahe on, et me õnnistaksime ja oleksime õnnistuseks teistele.
Õigete õnnistusest kerkib linn.....Õpetussõnad 11:11
2. Palveta, et Issand ilmutaks oma armastust ja armu Türgi inimestele valades välja oma Püha Vaimu üle meie maa ja näitaks oma au läbi tervenemiste, imede ja tunnustähtede.
3. Palveta, et Issand murraks maha südameid kalestanud valed ja lõputu
desinformeerimise Kristuse, Piibli ja kristlaste kohta. Palveta, et Jumal vabastaks ajaloo negatiivsed mälestused.
„Sest kuigi me käime lihas, ei Sõdi me mitte liha viisi järele. Sest meie võitluse relvad ei ole mitte
lihalikud, vaid nad on vägevad Jumala ees maha lõhkuma kindlustusi, hävitades kõik mõistuse targutused. Ja me lükkame ümber kõik kõrgistused, mis tõstetakse Jumala tunnetuse vastu, võttes vangi iga mõtte Kristuse sõnakuulelikkuse alla“ 2 Kor 10:3-5
4. Palveta, et südamed ja silmad oleksid avatud nägemaks Jeesust kui teed, tõde ja elu.
5. Palveta, et türgi usklikud, kes sammuvad alati tulejoonel, oleksid Issandale lähedal. Palveta värskenduse, vapruse, tugevuse, kaitse ja julgustuse eest.
6. Palveta teenija südamega juhtide esilekerkimise eest, heade eeskujude ja ustavate töötegijate eest.
7. Palveta koguduse ühtsuse tugevnemise eest, et see süveneks ja laieneks.
„Aga kannatlikkuse ja troosti Jumal andku teile üksmeelt isekeskis Kristuse Jeesuse järele, et te ühel meelel ja ühe suuga austaksite Jumalat ja meie Issanda Jeesuse Kristuse Isa!“ Ro 15:5-6

Aitähh teile palvete eest! Jumala käsi olgu alati teie üle!
