For the past year and a half, I have been volunteering for a ministry in Alabama.
I have been living on campus with my 6 year old daughter.
It was our home, but for reasons, it is no longer.
In fact, I was in the process of building a cabin on the property for us to live in, and had even spent over $3,000 in materials for the place.
As fate would have it, the time has come for me and my daughter to find our own path.
I have been given the opportunity to start a veteran’s ministry to share God’s love with my damaged brothers in Arms in Walla Walla, Washington.
As a combat veteran, I have seen the terrors these men deal with and have found hope that I am determined to share with men who have very little.
My best friend and his family are planning on moving to the same location so we are going in on the move together.
Our total cost of moving everything and everyone into our new home is estimated to be around $6000.
After the cash we have on hand, profits from selling what we don’t need to haul 2,400 miles across the country, and my VA disability check on its way, we will be within grasp of making this new beginning a reality.
There are zero ties holding me back as my daughter’s mother unfortunately passed away last spring.
This move is happening come hell or high water.
I’m asking for a little help to reach the estimated $6000 for a cross country move. This will cover truck rental, fuel, food, deposits, rent, insurance, and utilities for the first month which all need to be ready to go as we pull in the driveway of the house I am applying for.
My friend and I are both skilled handymen with tools who can easily earn a living anywhere we go.
I see this as a wonderful opportunity for my little family and would be inexpressibly grateful if you feel led to give this tremendous effort some support.

The $2,000.00 came too easy for Mark. Now he’s going for $5,000.00!
Update January 15, 2021
Kent Hovind appears to address Mark’s departure in his live performance tonight. He might also be making reference to Cindi Lincoln; her whereabouts cannot be confirmed at this time. Some have thought that she might have left Kent’s bed and board and conpound.
This might explain some of the tensions on the conpound. Aaron has me blocked on FaceBook, so I had overlooked this exchange on Mark’s page.
Update January 16, 2021
This unsubstantiated report has also come to my attention!

Update January 17, 2021
I don’t know how GoFundMe works. Mark Stoney has edited his GoFundMe to return to the $2,000.00 goal and has removed his January 14, 2021 update explaining his request for $5,000.00 since the $2,000.00 goal was met so easily (in 1 day).
Update July 5, 2021
As reflected now in other articles on this site, Mark Stoney has “split” from Kent Hovind, realized his errors related to moving in with him, and has recently been working to show the public the problems/issues with Ketn Hovind and some of the people he associates with and promoters (i.e., Brady Byrum, Chris Jones, et al).
