Urgent Prayer for Andrew Brunson

This past Sunday I shared with you about EPC Pastor Andrew Brunson who is wrongly accused and imprisoned in Turkey. He is on trial and could face up to 35 years in prison, if convicted. His trial resumes tomorrow, and our EPC leadership has asked us to take today to pray for Andrew, his family, and the Turkish leadership.Please click here to see a prayer guide for Pastor Andrew.

Thank you for joining us in prayer today!

The judge adjourned the hearing for Andrew Brunson, a Teaching Elder with the EPC who has been imprisoned unjustly in Turkey for over a year and faces up to 35 years in a Turkish prison, until later and ordered him back to the prison.

What an exciting opportunity we were given to hear these young people and how they share their lives with others. Some have been asking how to stay connected with Jake and Hannah Magness and Lauren and Branden Bender and their missionary work with Overland Missions. They would appreciate your interest and we have their personal contact information - they would love to talk to you and answer any questions. Also you can find more information at https://www.overlandmissions.com/donate/

If you wish to support them please include their names - also if you don't participate in online giving - they have a form that you can use.
