Andrew Brunson was arrested with his wife last October. She was released, but he was charged for working with a ter-group. Andrew has been a pastor in this place for over 20 years. The charges are bogus, but that often doesn’t matter. His wife just sent this request for people in the U.S.
For U.S. citizens willing to do something practical, a focused social media campaign is being launched and directed toward President Trump. Capitol Hill leadership and religious freedom advocates have agreed that Trump is the one person who can affect Andrew’s release. He alone could call Erdogan and tell him, “If you want to have a conversation about a better relationship with the U.S., you will first release Andrew Brunson.” This is the message that has failed to get through to the President since mid-December.
A petition, “Forgotten American in Turkey,” has been launched and can be signed. To get the attention of the White House, 100,000 signatures are needed by March 6. Although a high bar, it is reachable if we all take a minute to sign and get the word out. You can also:
