CEAI Prayer Alert 10.26.09


We asking for your prayer support regarding an upcoming hearing CEAI is involved in.

Last fall, John Freshwater, a 24 year veteran teacher with a positive evaluation history, was suspended. After a student claimed injury from a district endorsed experiment that he and other science teachers have done for years, the district failed to support him. The student filed a lawsuit claiming he had been branded with a cross and the district responded by releasing Mr. Freshwater. 

His conflict with administrators seemed to start earlier when he was ordered to remove his personal Bible from his desk which initiated negative publicity for the district in the community and beyond.

Pray that the Peace of the Lord be evident in the hearing as I testify and that Truth as the Lord sees it prevails. Cover John Freshwater and his family in prayer as he continues to fight for justice and that all his needs are met during this period of forced unemployment.
