Christians in Turkey and around the world are praising God for the release of Andrew Brunson from Turkish captivity. While the charges were not dropped, the court ruled on October 12th that he should be released for good behaviour and time served. He was allowed to leave the country and return to the United States. (Previous report.)

While we are thankful for his release, it is disappointing that he was convicted on bogus terrorism charges. According to Middle East Concern, Andrew's lawyer in Turkey will be appealing the conviction and sentence in order to clear his name.
