Martin de Lange is happily married, enjoying his job, living in South Africa. But stirred with passion for the spiritually lost in Turkey, he uproots his little family and heads north. Turkey is utterly different, a land where people ask obtrusive questions, the government watches every move and men think his wife is a prostitute. Over 15 years Martin gradually becomes fluent in Turkish, setting up Bible distribution networks and pastoring a growing fellowship. Marriage difficulties, police harassment and loneliness at times lead the de Langes to crises of faith. As threats mount, Martin is faced with a difficult choice. Head for the safety of home, or live where God has led them? Finally they are blacklisted and forced to leave. Six months later, three of the men Martin recruited are horribly murdered by extremists. Martin and Petro now travel the world raising prayer and support for the Turkish church.
A former police officer in South Africa, Martin and his wife were for many years missionaries in Turkey under the auspices of Operation Mobilisation.|
