Please do pray earnestly for the situation and all involved. Ken and his family sense a great need for the mercy and grace of God to help them face whatever lies ahead for the next few months. Trial dates have been set for Tuesday, August 7 through Friday, August 17. The prosecution seems to be bringing an aggressive and comprehensive case, with many witnesses beinig called. More than $50,000 has been expended in legal fees. Due to the complexity of the case and a longer trial than anticipated, another $50,000 will likely be spent. Ken and his family are needing to lean hard upon God.
The Pre-trial Conference has been moved to July 17, and the Jury Draw to August 7, with the trial following soon after. Of course Ken and family would have preferred to have the trial over with sooner rather than later, but they continue in good spirits. Please keep them in your prayers.

Due to scheduling issues the pretrial hearing has been moved from May 25 to June 21, and the jury draw moved from June 12 to July 10. We expect the trial to be held in Vermont shortly afterward. This is a wonderful answer to prayer as we would all prefer to have this matter resolved sooner rather than later.
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."
