Pastor Imprisoned for His Faith Finds a Deeper Relationship with Jesus
“The sense of God’s presence completely left me … and I felt the silence of God.”
Andrew Brunson and his wife Norine had served as missionaries in Turkey for more than 20 years when Andrew was falsely charged with being part of a terrorist organization. He was held in prison for more than two years, while people around the world prayed and petitioned for his release.
It was an incredibly difficult time. Andrew struggled with feeling weak, alone and even suicidal. But he never lost his faith in Jesus, even when it seemed like God had abandoned him. Hear why on this episode of GPS: God. People. Stories.
