Trial for American Pastor Andrew Brunson Further Delayed

[281] prayers in [21] nations have been posted for Andrew Brunson.

Following his long-awaited court hearing on April 16, Andrew Brunson was ordered to another prison, and the remainder of his trial was postponed until May 7. Andrew was arrested on Oct. 7, 2016, on terrorism and espionage charges, and he faces up to 35 years in prison if convicted. During the hearing, he told the court that he is a servant of God and that his only reason for being in Turkey was to preach the gospel. He stressed that he loves the country and has been praying for it for 25 years. He also insisted that he has done nothing wrong and rejected the charges filed against him. At one point, Andrew broke down emotionally, telling the court that he has suffered psychologically while in solitary confinement. The pastor has lived in Turkey for more than 20 years, leading a church in the southwestern part of the country. Pray that the Lord will strengthen and comfort Andrew and his family. Pray for the wisdom and direction of Andrew’s Turkish lawyer as he defends the pastor during trial, and pray that the court will rule justly, leading to Andrew’s release.
