Another court hearing this Friday

There is another court hearing on Friday, June 1st. Once again, this is when the judge is supposed to make a decision to grant the defense a new trial or deny the request. If the judge denies  the request for a new trial, the defendant will also be sentenced at the hearing. This was supposed to happen a year and a half ago at the original sentencing hearing, and at many subsequent hearings. I gotta admit, I won’t be shocked if Friday’s hearing fails to produce a resolution, but I’m praying it does.

Please continue to join me in prayer for the woman who shot me in the chest and nearly killed me almost three years ago. Pray that a she may know the Love, Mercy and Forgiveness of Christ Jesus!

Thank you to everyone who’s been faithfully participating  in this journey with me through your prayers, support and friendship. I truly appreciate and pray for all of you!

Support Vocations by Helping a brotha (err… soon to be Deacon) Out!

My brother Charles (also known as Chuck) is going to be ordained a transitional deacon on June 2nd and will be ordained a priest a year later.  He’s being sent by the Grand Rapids Diocese to Atlanta to minister to the sick at Emory University Hospital for the summer. The day after he’s ordained he’s planning to leave for Atlanta but as of now he has no car to drive down there and get around Atlanta with so we’re raising funds so he can buy a car. Our goal is to raise $5,000 by May 25th.

You can help support this soon to be man of the cloth out by donating here at PayPal and send your donation to our sister Cecilia’s account at She will transfer all donations directly to Charles.  (Unfortunately, we no longer have a way to donate without having a PayPal account)

Please pray for my brother and all seminarians, deacons and priests! Thank you.
