All writing is a form of prayer - John Keats

One of those difficult moments

I'm not going to ask for money, but if you believe in prayer, I am asking that you'll join me on this one.

Here's the thing.

After being asked to vacate this building, we found new office space in Grand Haven, Michigan, and we'll be moving soon. And, it will cost us NO CASH! We have worked out a barter arrangement, so that all money contributed to our organization will actually go directly into our programming. We are blessed.

THEN, wonderful supporters of our organization completely furnished the office!

BUT, now we must have roughly $5,000 by the first of the week to operate. I'm not asking you for the money. You have been most gracious and generous during very difficult economic circumstances. But, after running a little short each month, things finally caught up with us.

To give you an idea of what's happening: We've responded to 28 requests for assistance already this month! I'm going to testify in one of the most important parole interviews in our history in just a few weeks, sitting beside a man who has been in prison for 36 years for a crime he did not commit!

We cannot stop now. We must press on! We continue to believe in miracles. We need one now.

Just your prayers. That's all I ask for.

Peace and love in the struggle,

Doug Tjapkes, President
20 W. Muskegon Avenue
Muskegon, MI 49440
