Postponing of the KIB Podcast Due to Family Tragedy

Kingdom Intelligence Briefing


On Friday morning, Dr. Michael and Mary Lou Lake’s son-in-law passed away suddenly from a heart attack.  Needless to say, the entire family is in mourning.  The Lake’s will be helping with the funeral, as well as helping their daughter and three grandsons through this tragedy.


Needless to say, it will be a few weeks before things in the ministry get back to normal with regular podcasts again.  Please keep the Lakes and their family in your prayers.
