Prayers for the Persecuted - Pastor Andrew Brunson
A Christian pastor in Turkey was just imprisoned. He is in danger.
American Pastor Andrew Brunson - a U.S. citizen from North Carolina - has been falsely charged with "membership in an armed terrorist organization." The charging documents state no "evidence has been gathered" against him. He has been a Christian pastor in Turkey for the past 23 years.
Pastor Andrew had been in a detention center since October 7, 2016, but he was just transferred to prison. During his 63-day detainment, he was denied access to his Turkish attorney.
If convicted, Pastor Andrew could face years in prison based on extremely serious - and false - charges.
Keep Pastor Andrew, his wife, Norine, and their three children in your prayers.
