Gordon Robertson with CBN speaks with Pastor Andrew Brunson and his wife Norine on TODAY’s 700 Club daily program…
Turkish police arrested the North Carolina pastor back in October 2016, three months after a failed coup attempt.
Christians around the world continued to pray, and on October 13, 24 hours after his release, Pastor Brunson knelt in the Oval Office and prayed for the president who helped win his freedom.
BTW: The Brunsons served there for more than 20 years in Turkey, where they established Izmir Resurrection Church. They openly shared Christ and also helped Syrian refugees – some of them Kurds.
