Pray for the Protection of Pastor Emre Karaali
A new development arose in the case against those who conspired to kill Pastor Emre Karaali. In January 2013, Pastor Emre learned that more than a dozen people—including some who had infiltrated his church and even babysat his children—were planning to assassinate him. Evidently, those plotting his death had met with a police chief and military officer. Because of this, the courts indicted these two officers. After waiting for a year for the officers to give their story, Pastor Emre’s lawyer called him and told him that it is no longer necessary for them to give a witness statement, claiming that there is not enough evidence that they had any part in the plot. Though there were phone records showing a connection between the assassins and the officers and earlier court hearings stated the relationship between them, prosecutors do not see the connection as sufficient evidence. This means the decision will have to be appealed, prolonging the case. Pastor Emre has forgiven those who plotted to kill him, yet the case is weighing heavy on his heart. Pray the Lord will continue to be Pastor Emre’s stronghold as he waits. Pray also for justice, ultimately that those responsible will place their trust in Christ.
