Hi Pastor Ken, Thanks for taking time to write about the celebration you enjoyed with your new friends over your son's wedding. Ephesians 3 is my prayer for you today . . . That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Chr...
Paul & Edith Yoder
We are praying for you and your family. It is encouraging for us to observe God's faithfulness in ministering to you in your deepest hour of need, giving you the grace to testify of the reality of God's presence and peace! Keep looking to Him Who is within you and Who is also much greater than he who is in the world!
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***!

The Case

An update

Ken wrote this recently in response to a request for more news. 

Thank you for reminding me about the need for communicating.  We are so grateful for all the love and support we have felt from God’s people and wish we could thank each one personally! We are trusting God to reward each one. 

We have not received word on a sentencing date.  There was an idea floating around that within thirty days we would know something. I think that was a misunderstanding.  Our attorney tells us that it could happen in days or months, it all depends on how the court in VT schedules it. Sometimes 4-6 months can go by between trial and sentencing.  

I think the uncertainty has strengthened our faith and has helped us to appreciate the beauty in each day.  God is good,  and we are not discouraged. We wait on Him. 

A separate issue is the grand jury testimony. That has been put off a couple of times. The last date set for the grand jury was Sept. 14th.  But our attorneys filed a motion to delay it until after the sentencing.   Since Judge Sessions was on vacation, he wasn’t able to make a ruling on that motion immediately. This past week he ruled to deny our motion to have the grand jury testimony delayed. So we are now waiting for the prosecution to schedule a new date, and it’s likely to be fairly soon.  In the meantime we continue on in faith, knowing that "tribulation worketh patience, and patience experience, and experience hope... and hope maketh not ashamed because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given unto us." (Rom. 5:4-5) 

 

Jesus is Lord!

Grand Jury Testimony Postponed

 Ken just received word yesterday afternoon that the grand jury testimony which

 was supposed to happen in VT this coming Thursday has been postponed. We do
 not yet have a new date. This is just another opportunity to trust our
 Heavenly Father with the details of our lives. We are so encouraged by all
 the support from God's people.


A letter from Ken

Dear Friends,

We wish to express our heartfelt appreciation to all the people who have supported us in prayer, encouraging words, and finances. How can we ever finish thanking God for the grace that has come through you, our Friends in Christ?

There are those who do not see things as we do. We thank God for those people also; those who are still “friends in the making.” We only wish the love, mercy, and transforming grace of God upon all of us poor sinners.

We can’t pretend that the journey has been easy. There are days when the situation seems completely overwhelming and we can only cry out to God in our great helplessness. The pain of what seems as unfulfilled ministry in Ireland and separation from our brothers there causes the most acute distress. The legal situation and implications of the verdict can be faced and accepted, but the uncertainty of our future with the country and people we love has brought many tears.

But in the midst of our trouble we have found God to be “Our refuge and strength,” and have found “Jesus’ yoke to be easy and His burden light.” More than anything we are so very thankful to be reconciled with God and at peace with him through faith in His Son Jesus. He is Lord of heaven and earth and in him we remain unshaken.

Peace,

Ken Miller
