Christian Leaders, Home Church of Pastor Andrew Brunson Celebrate His Freedom

By Brandon Showalter - Posted at The Christian Post:

Christian leaders and the home church of Pastor Andrew Brunson are celebrating his return to the United States, saying the development is a hopeful signal for the persecuted and is another reason why evangelicals support Trump.

Brunson, a native of Montreat, North Carolina, spent the past two years in a Turkish prison on terrorism charges.

Christ Community Church, his home parish in nearby Black Mountain, gathered on Sunday for a service to celebrate his release.

A spokeswoman for the church said members and staff were "doing the happy dance and shouting hallelujah" on Friday upon hearing Brunson had been freed, according to the Asheville Citizen Times.

"Today's sermon highlighted being faithful ... and waiting for the Lord in difficult times," she said Sunday.
