It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we invite you to vigil with us at Cherith Brook as we pray for the life of our friend, Mark Mize, who has spent more than 14 years on death row in Jackson, GA. Beginning at 5:30pm we will hold a candle light vigil, offer prayers, and meditate silently through the time of his scheduled execution: April 28 at 6pm (central time zone).
If you are unable to attend, due to time or distance constraints, please hold your own vigil wherever you may be. The photos here are of Mark, his sister and mother. Jodi describes him as a gentle soul. She has visited and corresponded with him over the past several years. She will be with him and his mother in Georgia for a couple of days this weekend.
