Cousin Update

My uncle writes:

I am so emotionally spent I find it hard to even sit down to write this email. But today it is only joyous news!

Jason was released last night, about 36 hours after the accident.

We had to put our house in hock to make it happen, but there were times when the clouds were so grey that it seemed like Jason might be put into the federal penitentiary, and that can be a hard place to get out of!

The case isn't over, but it seems the most difficult part is past.

There has been an amazing amazing amazing outpouring of love and support via emails.

A thoroughly amazing outpouring.

We thank you.

Many have asked about the finances. It is hard to say, but we calculate that the ordeal could end up costing $15-$20 thousand dollars. Most of it for funeral expenses, vehicle replacement, etc, for the family of the man who died. Theoretically there is some insurance coverage, but often that is just a runaround. Only because so many of you have asked, we will say that yes, if you would like to contribute for that, you can do it via a check to Olive Tree Ministry.

Mention that the money for the accident expenses.

Thank you for passing on my little message to your uncle. I'm so glad to see the power of prayer being demonstrating publicly.
