Sumthin' tells me that Turkey isn't a very good place to be a Christian evangelist from any denomination.

Aside:
How many LDS missionaries go to islamic nations (jes' wonderin'...)?

Wife of murdered pastor gives birth to second child just days after his death
Staff writer    Thu 28 Nov 2019

The wife of a pastor who was stabbed to death in Turkey on Nov. 19 reportedly gave birth to their second child just days after the tragedy. Pastor Jinwook Kim, 41, who had been pastoring a small group of Christians in the city of Diyarbakir, was tragically killed after being stabbed three times - twice in the heart and once in the back.

Government officials insist that the attack on Kim was a mugging, rather than an assassination for his Christian faith. However, locals believe Kim was targeted for his faith.

According to International Christian Concern, locals in the area had called for a police investigation after the murder. "This is the first martyrdom since Malatya. The Turkish government has started a massive deportation of Protestant leaders who served in Turkey for many years," a local church leader told ICC. "But deportation isn't enough for evangelists. This kind of attack would scare [them]. I think this is the last level of a plan, being like China."

I was happy that Trump was able to save that one pastor.  But that does not change the persecution other Christians suffer in Turkey under Erdogan and his extremist Islamic government.
Go Hawks!
