Today I wanted to share with you something that has really been on my heart. A few days ago I received an email from Kim Hill, the grammy nominated award singer, telling me about the story of Eric Volz. She attached the following YouTube presentation that tells his story. The following information is about Eric, who I believe is a follower of Christ. That's not confirmed, but his father and mother are Christians.
This is from Eric's MySpace Page
His name is Eric Volz. He is a U.S. Citizen and has just been sentenced to 30 years in a Nicaraguan prison for crimes he did not commit. He was working as the publisher for El Puente Magazine in Nicaragua when he was accused, convicted, and sentenced for murder.
He is suffering a slow and debilitating existence under conditions beyond your comprehension. Fighting starvation and under the constant threat of violent attacks...... his life is on the line everyday!
This is not a joke, this not a game, this is his struggle. The facts of his situation speak for themselves and can be found at the website indicated. If you think you can help him in anyway do not hesitate, we are begging you....his survival could depend on it.
I have also started a blogroll for friends who want to add their site and pray for Eric and this whole situation. Click here to join that blogroll. We will be adding a picture and more in the next few days.
