He spent Christmas in prison. Andrew Brunson is an American citizen who has been serving as a pastor in Turkey for more than 23 years. He and his wife raised their family there. Over two months ago, he was unexpectedly detained and has been unfairly charged with being a member of an armed terrorist organization and is still imprisoned. These are very serious charges. I spoke with Pastor Andrew’s wife yesterday, prayed with her, and assured her that I would share this with you. You can understand her concern.
I ask that you join me in praying specifically for Pastor Andrew’s protection and release. Please share your encouragement and prayers with Mrs. Brunson in the comments below and I will be sure she knows. I hope you will also share this post with others who will pray.
The Bible says, “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering” (Hebrews 13:3).
