Murdered in a Christian Bookstore

I received the following email from a friend, recently back in Pennsylvania after serving with a Christian mission organization in Turkey.
"Hello dear ones. Two Turkish brothers and a German brother were murdered today in Malatya, in the southeast of Turkey. One of the Turkish brothers was a friend and dear brother to me. He leaves behind a wife and young child. Please pray."
He included the following quote from the information that he had received:
"Today at least three members of Malatya Kurtulus (Salvation) Church were murdered by the cutting of their throats by right-wing extremists in a Christian bookstore run by the church in that city of southeastern Turkey.... Your prayers are coveted for their families, the church, and Pastor who is on the road right now travelling to Malatya, at least six hours by car from Ankara."
May we continue to remember our Christian brothers and sisters whom God has called and placed in countries around the world. Grace and peace. Steve

Thank you for posting this. I spent over five months in Turkey and hope to go back some time in the future. It is a country near and dear to my heart.
