(Voice of the Persecuted) At this time, due to ongoing negotiations, we can only share that Turkish authorities have released Norine Brunson and her husband, Andrew is still being detained. We request that prayer and fasting continue for Andrew. Prior to their arrest on Oct. 7, 2016, Pastor Andrew Brunson had been leading the Izmir Resurrection Church, a small Protestant congregation averaging 30 to 40 worshipers. The American couple have been residents of Turkey for the past 20 years. We are staying in communication and will share updates, including how you can get involved if further action becomes necessary.
As always, your continued love, concern and prayers are much appreciated. We know that God will cause good to come from this. Andrew’s wife, Norine told Voice of the Persecuted that she is tremendously blessed to hear that a large network of prayer warriors are lifting her and her husband in prayer, each day.
“Amazing. Humbling. Please pass on our gratefulness,” she added.
Your prayers are such an encouragement and make a difference to those suffering for Christ. Please continue to press in for this faithful couple and their family.
- Pray for Andrew and peace for his wife, Norine.
- Pray the authorities would not discriminate against Christians in Turkey.
- Pray for religious freedom in Turkey
