A new year has set in.

I wish to start 2021 with a heart filled with love, gratitude and hope.

Profound love and gratitude to the Almighty God for the gifts of enduring patience, courage and fortitude in adversity. For keeping me healthy, sane and whole.

Love and gratitude to my family, staff, friends and supporters for sharing my moments and feeling my joys, triumphs, pains, frustrations and disappointments. For fighting alongside with me. For their continued faith in me.

Hope and optimism for a better year. For the end of the pandemic. For the revival of humanity and mankind’s deepened resolve to rise above any and all challenges and crises under the power of solidarity. Staying woke and vigilant, guarding our freedoms. For strengthened adherence to the timeless values of Christianity and the core principles of democracy and social justice, warding off hopelessness and faithlessness.

I ask all those who believe in me to join me in earnest prayers for the court’s favorable action on my plea for demurrer to evidence / dismissal of my drug cases, or at the very least the grant of bail. May the hearts and minds of the judges handling my cases be enlightened to uphold truth and justice. We pray for their courage to do the right thing.

God’s grace and mercy will be sufficient. But an extra push from you, dear friends and loved ones, might just clinch it.

God is great. Always!
