Dec 17, on Facebook, Norine Brunson wrote:Day 72 - So far I have had no letter from Andrew and I have no idea if he has received any of my daily letters. On Thursday I went to deposit a bit of money so he can buy things like toothbrush, soap, socks and underwear, things I am not allowed to mail into him. On that day they said that the books I had tried to get to him not been passed on. One person said he was not allowed to have them, another said once they are approved he can have them (no idea when they might even look at them to approve).
Please pray that the Lord's presence break through to him in a powerful way. That had not been the case earlier.
The lawyer says the case is likely to come up for at least six months. Please continue to pray for a miracle, even for a Christmas miracle!

Yesterday on FB Andrew's mom wrote:We saw Andrew today face to face! An order came through from the Ministry of Justice for a one time visit! Praise God! He is thankful for all those who refuse to give up praying, as he fears being forgotten. He is feeling that like Job, "Father God has given me over to Satan." Nevertheless, he said, 'I will still follow Him." He is hurt and disappointed and in soul pain. He is in a tremendous spiritual battle. He broke down several times, especially when he saw Norine for the first time in so long.

Andrew is from right here in my town, and his story was front page news on Wednesday. (The paper only comes out once a week.) Our pastor shared his story two weeks ago, but we kept it off the PodCast just in case it caused more trouble. Glad to see the rest of the world is now praying alongside us and his family.

On FB, Pastor Andrew's wife wrote:I am sorry I cannot thank each one of you individually for praying and writing. I am so grateful. It's great to see prayers going up all over the States and even in other countries. Please do not stop! The Lord has to do this.

I got to see Andrew last Wednesday, a one-time face to face. Each visit needs to be granted by the Ministry of Justice in the capital city we are told. He was very down and discouraged. He had been almost completely cut off. The week leading up to Christmas, the lawyer had come two days late. Until he saw her, he had no idea if I was still in the country, if his letters were going to an empty home, etc. as all my letters had been held. Also, because we had had hope for a release by Christmas, to then have things take a turn for the worse on Dec 9 was a crushing blow.

Andrew turns 49 tomorrow. Please pray that the Lord will no longer remain silent, but will make his presence felt and do something very special for him.
