Are any of you soldiers not a Muslim?

During his basic training in the Turkish army, the young man's commander addressed all the troops and asked if anyone was not a Muslim. This young brother raised his hand in front of them all. Before recently entering military service in Turkey, he had his ID card changed from Muslim to  Christian. Of course the officer knew his status beforehand, but this put it out in the open.

Ask the Lord to protect this young brother from harassment and abuse during his 15 months of mandatory service. Pray that instead of being targeted he'll be favored by others and will have numerous opportunities to share his love for Christ.
