Huge News About Friend of the Podcast Michael Behenna

It’s been a long, long time coming but today, President Trump gave an Executive Grant of Clemency for friend of the podcast, Michael Behanna. I, along with numerous other members of the then called “Cyber Crew” worked hard to defend Michael from nearly the very beginning of this horrible ordeal to a true Military Hero.

A trip to DC in support of Micheal, walking the halls of the Congressional Office Building to speak with Congressmen and their staffs about the grave injustices that were placed on our friend, having Michael’s parents on the podcast more than once to keep us updated (once Michael himself got on the line to thank us for our support), and regular prayers are some of the things we’ve done on behalf of this amazing former Military Officer.  We once had former Congressman and retired LTC Allen West on the podcast just to talk about Michael.

This grant of clemency serves as a complete pardon for Michael. While he can never get back the years of pain and suffering he has endured because of this disgrace of a miscarriage of justice, I am so pleased that he can now have this part of his life behind him.

May God’s blessing always be with Michael, Vicki, Scott along with the rest of the family, friends, and fellow soldiers that were so affected by this ordeal.

Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Executive Clemency for Michael Behenna

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for former Army First Lieutenant Michael Behenna of Oklahoma.

In 2009, a military court sentenced Mr. Behenna to 25 years in prison for unpremeditated murder in a combat zone. After judgment, however, the U.S. Army’s highest appellate court noted concern about how the trial court had handled Mr. Behenna’s claim of self-defense. Additionally, the Army Clemency and Parole Board reduced his sentence to 15 years and paroled him as soon as he was eligible in 2014—just 5 years into his sentence. Upon his release, dozens of Patriot Guard motorcycle riders met Mr. Behenna to escort him back to his home in Oklahoma.

Mr. Behenna’s case has attracted broad support from the military, Oklahoma elected officials, and the public. Thirty-seven generals and admirals, along with a former Inspector General of the Department of Defense, signed a brief in support of Mr. Behenna’s self-defense claim. Numerous members of the Oklahoma congressional delegation, Oklahoma’s then-Governor Mary Fallin, and current Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter have also expressed support for Mr. Behenna. Further, while serving his sentence, Mr. Behenna was a model prisoner. In light of these facts, Mr. Behenna is entirely deserving of this Grant of Executive Clemency.

National Day of Prayer from Ed Boston Ministries

Pastor Ed and Amy Boston shared a National Day of Prayer podcast today. Click here to listen.

The theme for the 2019 National Day of Prayer on May 2, 2019, is Love One Another. The theme comes from the words of Jesus in John 13:34, “Love one another. Just as I have loved you.” 
 
The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, the law was unanimously amended by both the House and the Senate and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on Thursday, May 5, 1988, designating the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer. Every president since 1952 has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.
Our hope is that individuals, churches, and spiritual leaders in America, will humble ourselves and unify in prevailing prayer for the next great move of God in America. We can come together in clear agreement that this is our greatest need. We can become a visible union, standing together in prayer. We can pray more than ever before, and practice extraordinary prayer for the next great move of God in America that will catapult the message of the gospel nationally and internationally.

Update on Amy’s Medical Condition

Many of you may have noticed that the number of posts, podcasts, and other things coming from us have gone down since 2019 rolled around.

Since Thursday, December 27th our lives have been pretty crazy and Amy has had several medical experiences she would rather have skipped.

This story actually goes all the way back to September 7th, when she had a pacemaker implanted. The results of this procedure were, well in a word, horrible. Constant pain, sensitivity, pacemaker moving around, etc etc and that leads up to December 27th.

After consulting with a different cardiac surgeon, the decision to do a pacemaker revision was made. The procedure was scheduled at 2:00 pm, December 27th (times is important to the overall story).

About ten minutes before 2, the new cardiac surgeon (who we love) came in, asked the appropriate questions prior to surgery and told us that he would see Amy in the operating room shortly.

2 o’clock passed, then 3 o’clock passed, 4 o’clock passed and shortly after that, the surgeon walks in the room and closes the door behind him.

The doctor was obviously shaken up and said the following, “The procedure prior to yours went horribly wrong and I am in no shape physically or mentally to do your procedure.” He followed that up by apologizing over and over.

He personally set up the new procedure to be done on Monday.

Amy and I recorded a podcast discussing this entire scenario. Unfortunately, there was an issue with background noise in the audio, and we couldn’t post the podcast.

The reason we wanted to share that part of the story is that it shows just how we never sure what tomorrow holds. We are pretty certain from the doctor’s reaction, that the person having the procedure prior to Amy didn’t make it.

It’s pretty certain that when that person went to the hospital that day, they didn’t think their time had come. The procedures that day were done in an outpatient area which would imply that it wasn’t a high-risk item being done.

We are more than certain that the surgeon didn’t anticipate the outcome that happened. He had just visited Amy a few minutes prior to starting and his mood was good and cheerful, exactly the opposite of when he returned with the bad news.

The Bible teaches us that we aren’t promised tomorrow and the person in this story is a real life testimony of that fact.

Now on to the next part of this long report.

The procedure for Amy was done on Monday, December 31st and everything went fine. It was planned that she would spend one night and that’s what happened. The doctor said everything went as he anticipated.

Things were going well until Amy woke up Friday morning. Her left arm was swollen, all the way down to the tips of her fingers. A trip to the Emergency Room showed that Amy had a large blood clot and other small ones in her left arm that was blocking the flow of blood.

After an injection of a blood thinner, and an adjustment to the blood thinner she has been on since her stroke in February of 2017, we brought her home with the assurance that it may take a while for the clots to disperse but that the clot shouldn’t get any larger.

Sunday morning when we got up for church, her left arm and hand were swollen even larger than they had been. Another trip to the ER and the ultrasound showed that the clot had indeed grown larger.

She was admitted to the hospital Sunday evening with an IV blood thinner drip used to control the problem. 3 nights in the hospital and Amy is now back home. She has to give herself blood thinner injections twice a day for 3 months.

Her return to work has been set back at least a week, but she is now recuperating at home and looking forward to getting back into a routine.

We certainly appreciate all the prayers from all over the country that has gone out on Amy’s behalf. We are looking forward to an amazing 2019, even if it has started with a little bump in the road.

Merry Christmas from The Ed Boston Podcast

Amy and I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Our family, friends, and followers are the reason we do this ministry, and we want to remind each of you why we celebrate Christmas.

First, here is the link to our Christmas Special 2018, and then below is the real reason for the season, from Luke Chapter 2.

Merry Christmas to all,

Pastor Ed Boston

Luke 2

The Birth of Jesus

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

21 On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived.
