Russell and Regina Mast
We wanted you to know, Ken, that you are in our thoughts and prayers continually. Our message yesterday in church was about God's wonderful ways. We can rest in the knowledge that God does everything right. He sees the bigger picture when all we see is through a small window of time.

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***!

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.
