These are credible accusations, with several unrelated girls and women (both in and out of court) alleging sexual abuse and pedophelia in diverse locations over the course of many years.
On Wednesday, July 16th at 2:30 p.m. Chicago time [Central time], hearts around the world will be meeting at the Throne of Grace to petition God to bring Chester Mulligan to trial. Seven years ago, in northwest Indiana, this pastor was arrested and charged with child molestation and the trial keeps getting re-scheduled. It is now on the court docket for September. This man is presently pastoring a church in another state. In the last year we have been made aware of other victims who have not filed police reports. In some situations, the statute of limitations has expired.
Please put this time of prayer in your daytimer or on a post it note on your computer screen, dashboard or wherever else would be a good reminder.
