In 2011 Randall Hopley Snatched three year old Kienan Hebert form his second floor bedroom and returned unharmed four days later Hopley had prior convictions for abduction and sexual assault.
Father Paul Herbert had this to say upon hearing about Randall Hopley’s release.
“You know, it was hard to hear from a reporter friend that he was released and not from the proper authorities, but again, I knew this day was to come. I am so weak, that my personal feelings were stirred and I was upset.
So I had to get on my knees and be with God, as I am to weak to deal with this, we have this to God seven years ago and I give it to him now.
It’s times like this that I just remember that I can not carry the burden, but that he holds me up and carries me through.
Please pray that God has changed his heart or that God will protect those around him.
Before I became a Christian, I had the free will to choose my actions, but I freely gave my will to the lord and submitted my whole being to him. Let Jesus be in charge of this situation as I give it all up to him.”
