Christians around the world are rejoicing in the liberation of Pastor Andrew Brunson who was held for 2 years in a Turkish prison!  Dr. David Curry of Open Doors International will share the inspiring details of his release.  He will also open our hearts to the plight of our brothers and sisters in Christ who suffer intimidation, persecution and even death simply for worshiping Jesus!
Then, in light of the recent White House visit by Kanye West, Chris will challenge us to view people and politics through a Biblical worldview.
