From the Desk of Bishop Kenneth Adkins:
Many of you know of my current situation; with that being said, I need your help. Ten years ago I became the pastor of a church in Brunswick, Ga. While pastoring my wife and I have helped hundreds of people who were in tough situations. We have helped with funeral expenses, car repossessions, evictions, lawyer fees, clothes, utilities, temporary housing, bail money, college tuition, and the list goes on and on. Today I find myself in a tough situation of needing help fighting the untrue allegations of which I am accused of. I need 50 people to please consider sowing $200 to be paid and mailed directly to:Attorney Kevin GoughP O Box 898Brunswick, GA 31521
My trial begins on April 3, 2017 and my deadline for the balance of attorney fees is February 10, 2017.
Remember My Chains,
Adkins was recently denied bond after a Glynn County grand jury indicted him on eight counts of child molestation, five of them aggravated, two counts of enticing a child for indecent purposes and one count of influencing a witness.
