Missionaries to Turkey

Rick and Von de Leigh Robinson served as AIMers in Russia, Latvia, Scotland and Lebanon before receiving missionary appointment to Turkey. After 2,000 years God has seen fit to reopen one of the original fields of revival. Turkey, also known as Asia Minor, was the birthplace of the gentile revival in the first century. In these last days God has opened the door to evangelize this area one last time, and we are seeing a new beginning among the people that now occupy this land. In the Robinsons’ first years as missionaries, two new churches have been planted in Istanbul, one international and one African. They also have a home group and are working with contacts in several other cities. Truly the Harvest is white in Turkey!
