June 2019

As Daniel's father I've tried to only ask for help when a critical situation has arisen. But today I am asking for your help. His trust account has reached rock bottom. His family, thanks to each of you faithful supporters, has survived these many months. He couldn't have done it without you.  How I wish I was able to give the needed money and not have to ask you. You have been so compassionate and caring each step along the way.

Please Consider: I told Daniel that I'd try to explain to you why he still needs help. Please let me sincerely express how uncomfortable it is for Daniel to ask for your support. He feels upset that he still needs help. One person caustically wrote: "Don't send me anymore updates.  He's been out of prison long enough to earn his own living.  All you are doing is begging."

I apologize to any of you who feel this way; but the fact of the matter is Daniel has been helping a startup Internet company by programming and designing their web pages. He has put in long hours and many weeks of exhausting creative effort. But the company still hasn't launched and only has sent him chicken-feed pay so far.  Daniel trusts these owners and is expecting a good-sized check ~ hopefully very soon. And Karis is galiantly working two jobs which is a real blessing ~ providing a chunk of the family's needs.

Some write each month: "Thank you for letting us know what his needs are. I'm glad to help support him; he spent years in prison on our behalf." These caring comments always put a lump in my throat. With some reluctance I knew I had to share his serious situation again. Caring and faithful friends ~ I pray You can see
fit to help this time. Thank you in advance for doing so.
