Pastor Andrew Brunson's Heartbreaking Message

By CeCe Heil1518103732690

It’s been 16 months since his arrest, and Pastor Andrew Brunson, an innocent U.S. citizen, remains locked away in a Turkish prison, seemingly held as a political prisoner while his emotional and physical state deteriorate.

This week Pastor Andrew and his Turkish attorney had a formal meeting with the prosecutor in Turkey, which was only just recently scheduled. Although this was the first such meeting since Pastor Andrew’s detention, very little was accomplished. With still no access to the case file, indictment, or end in sight, Pastor Andrew penned a hopeless and heartbreaking note to his wife via an embassy official shortly after the meeting.

 “I am very discouraged. Please have prayer for me,” Pastor Andrew said. “I love you – can’t handle the thought of growing old in this place, without you.”

Meanwhile, the most recent monthly legal appeal of Pastor Andrew’s wrongful detention is still pending, but there is little hope that it will be granted. Further disheartening is the fact that -- in Turkey – Pastor Andrew can be held for up to 7 years without any formal charges.

The ACLJ continues to advocate on Pastor Andrew’s behalf. We already shared with you how we’ve taken his case to Congress, the Oval Office, and the United Nations. We will not back down. We will continue to fight this violation of justice and human rights until Pastor Andrew is released and returned home to his family in America.

Please continue to pray for Pastor Andrew, his family, and for his freedom.
