This update is long overdue. So sorry for delay but God is good and He has been working things out for Jalil.

Jalil and the AIC students are bouncing back from the tragedy of a few weeks ago. The suicide of a young man with so much promise was a devastating turn of events. We thank and praise God for helping the students & faculty join together for support and healing.

Woo Hoo!!! Jalil has been accepted to the AIC Master of Business Administration Program. He is very happy and excited about this new challenge in his life. It will help focus his mind on the positive instead of that negative situation that's still out there.

Speaking of which - all is quiet right now - thanks to your support and donations, Jalil's attorney initial retainer fee has been paid in full. If the case continues to trial, we will have to pay an additional fee to keep him on the case.

We trust and pray all charges will be dismissed soon but until then donations are still welcomed and appreciated.

All monies will go to Jalil's future legal expenses.

This morning I woke up to a phone call from Jalil with very sad news - one of the students at his school committed suicide last night.

Jalil is the Resident Assistant (RA) responsible for counseling parents and freshman students about life on campus. This was one of his kids and he is, once again, completely devastated. As is always the case when dealing with suicide, he blames himself.

Please pray for all of the parents, students and faculty of AIC. All classes have been cancelled and grief counselors are on campus to help deal with this shocking turn of events.

Have a prayerful day everyone:)

Hello Everyone,

I am Jalil's cousin, Antoinette Thomas.  On Friday, November 9th, Jalil attended a house party that turned into a violent robbery/drug raid.  He is now sitting in a Union County jail cell, in total shock and disbelief, waiting to be arraigned on very serious charges.  Right now his bail is $1 Million.

Jalil is a senior at American International College (Springfield, Massachusetts) - three weeks away from graduating with a degree in Communications.  He's a good kid - never been in any kind of trouble.  The calling on his life is to inspire and motivate young people.

Respected and well-loved, he comes from very humble beginnings - love, love, loves his family and friends. Shown above with his proud grandmother, Jalil WILL BE the first in his immediate family to graduate from college.

While we know, without a shadow of a doubt, Jalil was in the wrong place at the wrong time, it will take a good lawyer to argue his case before the court and prosecutors. We cannot, and will not, trust his case to a public defender. Too many innocent young men are wasting away behind bars right now because their public defender lawyer didn't have a clue.
We are asking you to donate whatever you can to help cover Jalil's legal expenses.  The sooner he is exonerated and released from jail - the better.  We will not allow this situation to ruin his super bright future. We trust and believe that God has an awesome Plan for his life.   


God bless you, thank you for taking the time to read this, and thank you in advance for your donation.
I will keep this page updated with any new information or developments.
