Ken, God bless you for being faithful. As true as God is, so sure is His judgments to man. Im made to think of Jesus words, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do".
Sim Yoder
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. It is such encouragement to know that there are men who would rather suffer than bring harm to God's Kingdom. Keep up your courage, the Christian community is strengthened by your commitment. 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.
