East Palo Alto Crime Rate Drops

As I reported on this blog - the crime rate rose dramatically last year culminating with the tragic homicide of Officer Richard May. As a respose the faith community in EPA hosted an anti violence summit, community prayer and prayer walks. THis year, as reported below by our chief of police, violent crime is down dramatically. Sure, some of this is do to traditional police action. But - I also have to attribute the change to the church of the city coming together in unity and prayer. God listens to the cry of His people.

Forgive the small print - I'm trying to figure out how to upload pdfs... Anyone know's how - please let me know...
