Our 4 year old daughter, Jemima, is singing Bunyan's old hymn 'He who would valiant be' like a broken record at the moment. I thought of you:
'There's no discouragement
Shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent
To be a pilgrim'
Having been counted worthy to suffer for His sake, know that He has prepared a place for you.
Yours in Christ

Dear Brother Ken,
We care for you. I'm sure that last evening in numerous congregations across the continent and beyond, brethren and sisters were seeking God on behalf of you. While our wording varied, we were asking God for His will and grace and strength for you. We love you.

We are praying for you.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

We as a family have been moved by your faith and consistant witness during this difficult time. Please be assured we are praying for the Miller family, only the future will reveal the effects or your work for the kingdom. Therefore my beloved brethren (Brother) be ye steadfast, unmovable always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as ye know your labor is not in vain in the Lord ! (1 cor 15:58)

Dear Ken and Linda and family,
We are deeply inspired by your example and devotion to Christ and to our faithful Heavenly Father who watches over each one of you and us. Thank you for giving us this present-day witness, and for demonstrating to each of us how being sacrificially faithful to Christ in this modern age is done. It is not easy for you, nor for us to watch, and yet to do and to be otherwise is not an option, and impossible for true believers who are fully surrendered to their King. May we learn to be just as surrendered when our turn comes upon us! May our Heavenly Father give each of us the grace to follow in Christ's footsteps as He is giving you. We listen over and over again to the beautiful songs that you have left for us on your site. They are truly inspiring. We all, in all of our churches, pray in one accord for you and for the earthly judge involved, knowing our Heavenly Judge has already decided the outcome in eternity. God bless each one of you, and may He hold each one close to His breast, nestled securely under His wings. We send this with our heart and love.

Greetings dear Ken
In the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You don't know me but...
We have not forgotten you. We praise God for your steadfastness in the faith of our dearly beloved. If we have not forgotten you, then the one who was so freely delivered up for us all has certainly not forgotten you.
I've been thinking, how helplessly Christ was crucified, he was so helpless, he was just so dependent on his Father and never lifted a finger (his flesh) to defend himself, he just submitted to his Fathers will until it cost him his very life. May he with that great price as the King of all eternity stooping so low fill you so much more with grace mercy courage and faith and LOVE in this trial, and may the God of perseverance grant you perseverance.

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. Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake; All now mysterious shall be bright at last. The waves and winds still know His voice who ruled them when He dwelt below.

In Isaiah 45, Jehovah God tells the prophet that he will someday use a king named Cyrus to accomplish his purposes on behalf of his people. Amazing! This was a foretold long before Cyrus was born! Our God knows what he's doing.
In that same passage we find these verses: "I am the LORD, and there is no other; There is no God besides Me. I will gird you, though you have not known Me, That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting That there is none besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other; I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things." (Isaiah 45:5-7 NKJV)

Good morning, Brother Ken.
Here's another verse for you.
New International Version
[ Psalm 18 ] [ For the director of music. Of David the servant of the LORD. He sang to the LORD the words of this song when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said: ] I love you, LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
May God be your rock, fortress, strength, refuge, shield, deliverer, and stronghold today.

I just wanted to let you know that we here in Puerto Rico have been praying for you! Some of my favorite verses are in Psalm 63--"O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches. Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice." Your example of seeking God and His Kingdom is an inspiration to me. We will keep praying for you here!

Dear Brother Ken,
I just want to encourage you with a few verses from Psalm 139. "Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee." (Psalm 139:7-12)
God will be with you, wherever you go in life. We are praying for you and your family.
Saturday, 02 February 2013 13:21
It was a pleasure speak with you at the trial. You're attitude toward opposition has challenged me to remember that the desires of the flesh (ie. comfort and convenience) must die in order to remain 100% loyal to the Kingdom of Christ while at the same time exemplifying a redemptive attitude toward those in the other kingdom. May those of the Anabaptist community who have been lulled to spiritually complacency be awakened by your example. I also pray that you would be treated with respect by the prison system and that the Holy Spirit would sustain you.

We recently had some friends over for the evening here in N.Dakota. We were surprised to find out that Laurie's niece worked with you in the same greenhouse in Virginia! We all are interested in you. Stand faithful.

Bro. Ken and Family,
Your courage has truly been an inspiration to me and so many others. Continue to seek after Him in all ways...He will never leave you nor forsake you, wherever you are at. May your light for Christ shine brighter and brighter each day. You and your family are lifted up in prayer regularly..
"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body." 2 Corinthians 4:7-10

Hold fast Brother, you give us courage.
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Bro. Ken and family,
1Pe 4:12-14 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
You have been and are in our prayers. Since last summer, when we shared your situation with the church, you have frequently been mentioned in the prayer meetings of the believers here. May God give you much grace and bless you for standing for Truth.

Dear Brother Ken,
We praise God with you for the freedom you feel in your heart. Our dear Lord Jesus said "Rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in heaven". We pray for you often, personally, as a family, and in our congre***. Sweet to think that you and your family are still together in the same place: our Father's Hand. The last words that I heard the children sing at school this morning were "keep on smiling". Thank you for blessing our lives!

I'm blessed by your testimony, brother Ken. It appears that for you the day has come when you can "Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in Heaven." (Luke 6:22-23) In that sense, I'm rejoicing with you. I look forward to seeing what God will do through all that has come to pass. Your brother in Christ, Roger
