This has been confirmed and I just want to say as I read this I bawled like a baby to ...know how good God is and that as hard as it is to not have my daddy I am grateful I am not having to watch him be tortured.
Lets bring these men home! Let us stand and spread the word and bring awareness. This is not okay and not acceptable.
Thank you for a God who is merciful
He shared with us an experience he had.
Upon being transferred to Nevada he was chained to a bench for 24 hours.
They didn't feed him all that day.
He was cold and tired and they didn't put him into his cell until the early hours of the next day.
When he did get to a cell it was beyond dirty and they left him chained to the bed all day without checking on him or feeding him.
By night time he was SO extremely hungry the pain in his stomach was unbearable.
He knelt in his cell and cried as he prayed.
That God would please hear him and please show even a small tender mercy.
He was there for several more hours.
This was the night before court.
And he decided to start banging his shackles together to try to get someone's attention to help him.
For a long time he keep banging his shackles together until finally the guy in the cell next to him asked him what was going on.
Ammon told him he was starving.
That they hadn't fed him for 2 days.
The guy said he would try to get a guards attention.
He got a guards attention and the guard finally came over and Ammon told him that he was starving.
That he hadn't received any food for 2 days.
The guard said to him that the kitchen was closed for he night. Ammon kept praying.
A little while later in the late night hours a guard came to his door and said your coming with me.
The guard took him to his brother's cell.
HE TOOK HIM TO MEL'S CELL. and they were able to be cell mates for that night.
Ammon said he was just praying for a small tender mercy but this was a HUGE miracle.
They have restricted any contact with his brothers and that night they were able to hug and to spend a whole night together.
They cried together and talked for hours.
Mel gave Ammon all of his commissary and any extra food he had he gave to Ammon so that finally after 2 days he could be fed.
The next day Ammon had court.
When he left he hoped that Mel would still be here on his return but knew that would probably not happen.
Court was long.
Ammon got back late and again went a whole day without eating.
He got back after dinner and was facing another day and night hungry.
When he got to his cell Mel was gone and had been transferred but Mel left Ammon his whole dinner that he had placed under some things so it wasn't in direct view.
Ammon cried and wanted everyone to know that even though it was only for a night that he got to share with his brother, he said he knows that was a miracle sent directly from God.
He knows that God is hearing all of our prayers.
It was confirmed to him 100 fold during this time.
