Mark A Strite
Be still my soul: the Lord is on thy side; Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain; Leave to thy God to order and provide; In every change He faithful will remain. Be still my soul thy best, thy heavenly Friend, Thro' thorny ways lead to a joyful end. Be still my soul: thy God doth undertake to guide the future as He has the past.

Dear Ken, We are praying for you and your family. We want to especially lift up the home confinement situation to God. He is still on the throne and is able to do "exceedingly abundantly above what we ask or think." We enjoy the inspirational articles you publish from time to time! God bless you!

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.
