Kirk Jenne and family
Dear Ken, How wonderful it is to hear about your strength and courage in the face of legal adversity. Your right to stand for God's principles flies in the face of those that would impose their own vile ways to gain control in our decaying society. Brothers and sisters in Christ will be in the crosshairs. May God's encouragement continue to bless you, your family, and your congre***!
Winfred and Jewel Nolt and family
Dear Ken, Just want you to know we will be praying for you during this difficult time in your life. Keep on keeping on for Jesus! The rewards will be out of this world! God be with you and keep you!
Sanford
Bro. Ken We pray for you every day for Holy Sprit protection. Many don't realize it, but the only thing that the child of God is promised in the Bible is Persecution. We are in a wicked world that is not a friend to the true Christian. Thanks for setting a true example for us.

The Case

Trial Plans Being Made

A trial in Vermon seems inevitable. As of May 1, the Honorable William K. Sessions III has scheduled a pretrial conference for May 25 and jury draw for June 12. 

Whatever the outcome of a trial, Ken and his family are committed to following the ways of Jesus, who in His trial before Pilate declared, "I have come into the world to bear witness to the truth." Ken's number one priority, in whatever lies ahead, is to bear witness to the Truth about God, marriage, family, and the transforming power of Jesus--even if it involves suffering.

"Nothing can take my freedom away," Ken says, "because I have already surrendered it to Jesus of Nazareth."

Motion to Dismiss Denied

The honorable Judge William K. Sessions III in Vermont has ruled to deny Ken's motion to dismiss the case. It looks like the case is headed for a trial; which will probably be in the next several months, or as late as this fall. While Ken and his family are disappointed about not being able to return to Ireland as soon as they had hoped, they are not discouraged. They are strong in faith and happy to be in the will of God. Please continue to pray.
