Today Andrew's wife wrote: Andrew cannot see the Lord's goodness to him right now - but I tell him about all the persistent prayers for him. Surely the Lord is keeping you all praying and surely he will answer! Thank you!
I saw him Monday. Pray that Holy Spirit would use me to speak hope, truth, and LIFE to him at each visit. May the Holy Spirit also use my letters (he has gotten 9 so far). I have to write very carefully so nothing will be misunderstood.
He has not been given any books yet, so continue to pray for this. I think it would help a lot.
There are several efforts to reach the President and VP. Pray for this.

Pastor Andrew's Wife wrote:THANK YOU FOR CONTINUED PRAYERS!!! I truly believe all the prayers have kept the situation from being a lot worse.
Although we had been told repeatedly over the past months we needed to speak in Turkish on our visits, last week the prison director said we could speak in English. So on Monday we were able to speak in English during our visit, which was really really nice.
Please pray that they continue to allow Andrew to have English books, and that they allow me to exchange the books each week.
Please join me in praying Matt 12:20 over Andrew - I believe the Lord gave this verse. I had focused on the first two lines, but then noticed the last one. Amen, may JUSTICE be brought to victory!
a bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not quench,
until he brings justice to victory;
Last week while we were waiting to get into the prison, I told the other wives that many people in other countries were praying for Andrew and for the men in his cell - so their husbands were getting prayer too!

Norine wrote:On Monday, Andrew told me he felt the Lord had said I would meet with Sec of State Tillerson. On Tuesday, I was told by the embassy and another senator that the meeting would NOT happen. I decided to come to Ankara anyway and arrived last night. I met with another significant person in the State Department early afternoon, then late afternoon was told the Secretary would meet with me. PTL, I just had a 20 min meeting with Sec of State Tillerson. I do not know what will come of it, considering the sensitive period Turkey is in, but was grateful for the opportunity.

Norine wrote:October 7 will be the one year mark of Andrew's imprisonment and I am so grateful to the EPC (Evangelical Presbyterian Church) for issuing a Call to Prayer and Fasting for the weekend of October 7-8. Here is what they say:
"We are asking everyone in the EPC to consider fasting and praying for Andrew on Saturday, October 7, and for our churches to pray for Andrew and Norine during their worship services on Sunday, October 8."
I know some of you have done quite a bit of fasting and we are so very grateful. Maybe others would be willing to join this Oct 7-8 time.
I recently heard of someone who is fasting coffee until Andrew is released! It has reminded him to pray for Andrew frequently, but has also provided many opportunities to get more prayer for Andrew when he turns down coffee and explains why! All of this is so precious to us.
