​​What a great way to start off a news ‘Round up Friday’ as Jim announced Pastor Andrew Brunson ‘HOME!’ Now, while it is under house arrest, even so, after almost two years in detention, Pastor Brunson was released at 5:30pm Wednesday from a maximum security prison in Turkey. This all followed a court order citing health reasons. Pastor Brunson must stay at the home until his next hearing scheduled for October 12th. Vice President Mike Pence had called on the nation of Turkey to release Brunson or face sanctions saying that Pastor Brunson ‘deserves to be free.’ Turkey has since responded advising the US to ‘watch our manners.’ Brunson, a Pastor from North Carolina has lived in Turkey for 23 years and has been on trial for terrorism and spying charges.
