“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.” [Ezekiel 33:6]

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” [Ephesians 6:12]

Presbyterians Week Headlines


Dear Mr. President,

You are an extraordinarily busy man in the world's toughest job so below is a quick read.

Congratulations on your rapid success in securing the freedom of U.S. Citizen charity worker, Aya Hijazi, Mohamed Hassanein (her husband), and four other aid workers who were incarcerated on false charges in Egypt. You have demonstrated when someone really cares in the leadership saddle, matters of justice can be spurred toward favorable results in a timely fashion.

Now I pray you will quickly secure the release of the American citizen Pastor Andrew Brunson, who is imprisoned in Turkey on the basis of false charges of aiding in terrorist plots against that nation. This is an urgent matter. With your God-given gifts at leadership and negotiation, I hope you will cut through all the mud-like excuses that unnecessarily slow things down in the DC swamp.

On behalf of Andrew's wife, Mrs. Norine Brunson, her family, and friends, I request your decisive help. By faith, we thank you in advance for a job that we know will be well done.

Commendations again for your success with the release for Aya Hijazi among others. Amazing work!

And thank you for any and all help in the cause to free Pastor Andrew Brunson.
