Turkey Arrests Another Pastor Just Days after Pastor Brunson is Released
By Kayla Koslosky - Posted at Christian Headlines:
After releasing pastor Andrew Brunson just days ago, Turkish authorities detained another U.S. missionary.
According to Middle East Concern, missionary David Byle, who has been preaching in Turkey for 18 years, was arrested in Ankara on Saturday by the Anti-Terror Police Department.
Byle was reportedly released Sunday afternoon, soon after he was interrogated. The missionary was then ordered to leave the country within the next 15 days.
"[We] have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support, not only from believers here in Turkey, but from literally all around the world. It means a lot to us and encourages us greatly to know we're not alone, that we're a part of such a great family, God's family," Byle and his family shared in a message.
The Christian Post reports that Byle has been arrested several times while he has been a missionary in Turkey.
