Jailed American pastor has appeal denied in Turkey
Rev Andrew Brunson has been imprisoned in Turkey since 7 October when he and his wife Norine were arrested as they posed “a threat to national security”. Andrew has pastored the Izmir Dirilis (Resurrection) Church, with a congregation of thirty to forty members, for the past 23 years.
Norine was released on 19 October but Andrew has remained in detention. On 9 December, he was formally accused of “membership in an armed terrorist organisation” and sent to prison. On 29 December, a court denied an initial appeal for his release.

Dünyadaki pek çok kişi duada size destek veriyor. Tanrı sizi iyi bir tanık olabilmenizi sağlayın. Sonunda Mesih’in elindedir ve o da sizi denediğinde altın gibi ortaya çıkarsınız.

Saygılarımla, Mesih’te, Dr Julian Kennedy, Birleşik Krallık.
Mezmurlar 121: 1 Ben tepelere gidip maden gözlerimi kaldırıp nereden bulacağıma yardım edeceğim. Yardımım, göklerin ve yerin yaptığı RAB’bi gönderir.

His wife says the news came as a crushing blow, as the family had hoped to be reunited by Christmas.
