The Point: Free Pastor Brunson

Please pray and speak out for Pastor Brunson. For the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

“Please do not leave me in prison.” Those are the words of missionary Pastor Andrew Brunson to President Trump, as delivered to the U. S. Embassy in Turkey.

Shortly after the failed coup attempt in Turkey, Brunson was called in to for a “routine visa check.” But instead, he was arrested.

As Jordan Sekulow wrote at the website of the American Center for Law and Justice, “Pastor Andrew – a U.S. citizen – faces false charges in Turkey of ‘membership in an armed terrorist organization.’ After peacefully serving the people of Turkey for more than 23 years without any issues from the Turkish government, this U.S. citizen now languishes in prison.”

This, friends, is outrageous. Turkey is a member of NATO and a supposed ally.

You have one president. One congressman. Two senators. Please contact them. Tell them you expect them to work for the release of Pastor Andrew Brunson. You don’t know how to contact them? Come to BreakPoint.org, click on this Point commentary, and I’ll tell you how.
