Last week, Andrew Brunson, a Christian pastor and evangelist from North Carolina, was released from Turkish captivity. After evangelizing and serving the refugee community in the country for years, Brunson was imprisoned (and later placed under house arrest) under vague charges related to “national security.”
This week, he was interviewed on CBS This Morning, and said that he believed that God has been using the situation for good: “Whatever reason the Turkish government was holding us for, I believe that God was involved with this for us. Because I think of millions of people who prayed for Turkey during that time, and how God is bringing blessing out of it.”
It’s a moving interview.
