Dear Friends and Family,

I am writing this latest update (May 26, 2015) on the eve of a jury verdict. The trial of myself (and MMS) has been in full swing since May 18, 2015. A jury of 12 began deliberating at noon today. Having taken a recess and gone home to their families at 5 p.m., they will return at 9 a.m. At sometime in the near future (tomorrow we think) a verdict will be returned that will bring about a climax to a saga that began almost a decade ago.

I am reminded of a quote shared with me at the beginning of this journey... "If you knew Who walks beside you on the way that you have chosen, fear would be impossible."

I can't say that I have always remained fearless; indeed I have not. In spite of these fears however, I have felt a mysterious calm in the last week - as if in the eye of a hurricane - a peace that passes understanding... undoubtedly the product of countless prayers reaching us from all corners of the world.

If you have a moment when you receive this update, please say a short prayer - whatever that looks like - specifically, that wisdom and courage will rest upon the jurors in this case as they seek to find their way through the maze of information they have been presented with - and that whatever is good, right and true, will take the day. Because miracles reach us all from outside of time, I suspect it matters not when you receive this message - or when you send your thoughts.

Thank you again for all your support - and for walking beside me (and my family) along this journey. I will try to give another update soon.
