We are not Likely to Lose our Religion

"I am following with great interest the reactions to the revival in missionary activities in Turkey by Protestant evangelists."

"Do the evangelist missionaries have a chance of success in Turkey? The activities of Protestant missionaries in Turkey are not something new. Christian missionaries conducted widespread activities in Anatolia during the 19th century. They could not, however, achieve any notable success among the Christian subjects, let alone the Muslims, although the empire was going through its most difficult years. Christian missionaries were able only succeeded to create tiny Protestant communities among Gregorian Armenians, Catholics and Orthodox Arabs. Today evangelists may also succeed in converting small groups of people in various regions of Turkey."
