From heaven you will thunder

and give forth your voice.

Your enemies will quake;
your servants will rejoice.

You prove to be whatever you need to be;

all will see

How you provide escape.

 

(CHORUS)

Jehovah provides escape for the loyal.

His servants will see what a mighty Crag is he.

So with courage and faith in our God,

we spread the fame

Of Jehovah, our Source of escape,

and praise his name.

Ten days. I know I'm a cynic, but that's enough time for a higher-level judge to recant. I hope not, but let's be honest: It's not like complying with the law has meant anything to them so far.

I understand the concern, but I’m sure they wouldn’t have posted this update if there was a big chance of this happening.

Why is he fined if he didn't do anything wrong? 

We live in an unjust system ... but everything belongs to Jehovah and I'm sure he will move things to lessen the burden on this gorgeous couple.

Don’t forget that Russia part of the KOTN. It still hates Jehovah’s people. That campaign in November might be cancelled, because numbers of the virus is going up even in Russia. 

I agree. 

I am really happy for brother Dennis and his family!

But the court ordered to release him because he has served more than a half of his time. They don't say he is not guilty. Same can happen to other brothers, bu not very soon.

He is exhausted,  half dead and fined but he is alive. And this is most important. 
Will he stay in Russia or go back home? 
 

His wife and her family are Russian. He has lived in Russia for many years. It is not certain he considers any other place ‘home.’

He lights up my path.

As I hear and obey.”
