Temporarily out of commission

It's been a while since my last post, I know. My wife is expecting any day—minute?—now and I need to be accessible by phone. They don't let you take cell phones into the jail, so I haven't wanted to go in and risk missing an important phone call! I hope to be back in jail soon!

The last time I was in, I was sitting with three guys who all had stories of escaping death. "Angelo" had been shot at several times by a policeman from a distance of 15 ft., but he wasn't hit at all. "I know God spared me," he said. "Rafael" had been pistol-whipped by a rival gang member, and forced to the ground with a gun to the back of his head. He then heard four shots from the gun. "I don't know how I...actually, I do know how I escaped," he said. "God was protecting me."

All three guys have nominal Catholic backgrounds. Pray that their eyes would be opened and that they would all turn to Jesus.
