Presbyterian Pastor Andrew Brunson endured a second day of trial in a Turkish Court in the town of Yeni Sakran on March 7, 2018. The case was then adjourned to resume on July 18. The Brunson family has close ties with Rosemark and the adjacent communities and many locally have joined in expressing their support and prayers for his speedy release. Pastor Brunson and his family have lived in Turkey for more than 20 years. He was Pastor at the Presbyterian Church in Izmir. He has been in Turkish detention since October 2016 and his imprisonment has drawn national and international attention. The United States Government continues to support Pastor Brunson’s release. Please continue to keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
