Hello friends. I’m going to ask you for a favor. I’m going to ask that you watch this video. A little background on this. A while back, I was up putting the finishing touches on query letters that I was sending out to publishers. Something told me to go onto my Yahoo account and check my email, well instead of checking my email, this story flashed up on my screen an caught my attention. I clicked on the link and watched the video and saw this woman’s story. My heart began to hurt, it touched me just that much. I went upstairs to go to sleep and couldn’t. I lay there thinking about this woman and her children. I must have laid in bed for an hour before I decided to go back downstairs and try to reach out to her. I went downstairs at three in the morning and found her on Facebook and reached out to her offering my words of encouragement. I was really surprised when she responded the following day and even more surprised that her faith in God remained so solid in spite of everything that her family was going through. We became Facebook friends and ever since I’ve kept her family in my prayers. Someone has to know someone that knows someone that can help reunite this family. I’m asking that you please watch this story and share it if you are with me on this. Thank you, I appreciate your help. ~Neva

DENVER — An Aurora man mistakenly released from prison and sent back to serve 90 more years is getting some help from religious leaders.
Tuesday, Together Colorado gathered outside the Governor’s Mansion to pray for Rene Lima-Marin, 35, and his family.
They also will deliver letters to Gov. John Hickenlooper and Attorney General Jon Suthers.
The faith-based group is fighting against unjust sentences and for reform of a state law passed in the legislature in 1985 that doubled the prison time for all felony sentences.
Jasmine Lima-Marin and her two young sons, 4 and 7, gather with others to pray—not inside a church—but outside the Governor’s Mansion.
They ask not only for help from above–but from the governor and attorney general.
“I actually pray every day and my faith has not changed as far as my husband not spending 98 years in prison,” says Jasmine.
