Gary - i meant to also wish you a happy birthday but got carried away in the excitement about your testimony. but it also occurred to me - here in some countries of Asia it is a tradition for the one having the birthday to give gifts to their friends. That is exactly what happened here. YOU gave US all an incredible gift by putting yourself on the line.
How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
