Please Pray for Pastor Andrew Brunson

EPC Teaching Elder Andrew Brunson was arrested in the Turkish coastal city of Izmir (biblical Smyrna) on October 7, 2016 and has been imprisoned ever since. He and his family have lived in Turkey since 1993. At the time of his arrest, he was serving as pastor of Izmir Resurrection Church. Andrew has been formally indicted and is facing decades in prison. His trial began Monday, April 16. We would ask you to pray throughout the week for favor and for Andrew’s freedom.
