Behold, I am doing a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert.
Friends for Life:
I just returned from the Defiance March for Life where 200 plus of God’s faithful braved the cold and rain to march for the dignity of human life! Yesterday, I was in Port Clinton as 100+ gathered to also witness to the sanctity of life! I’ve also heard and seen great pictures of the crowds that gathered in Bascom, Lima, Mansfield, Maumee, Tiffin and Norwalk! Also, in just a few short days 10+ busses from the Diocese of Toledo will head down to March for Life in our nation’s capital (please keep us in prayer)! Our God is marching on and God’s people are rising up to march with him!
With all of this feet stomping, prayers and petitions on this Day Of Prayer For The Legal Protection Of Unborn Children (http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/resources/january-22-day-of-prayer.cfm) we see good fruit being born as we learned the great news today that President Trump signed an executive order reinstating the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits federal funding from going towards foreign nonprofit organizations that promote or commit abortions (http://liveactionnews.org/breaking-president-trump-signs-executive-order-defunding-international-planned-parenthood/).
There definitely is a “new thing” springing forth which I believe is pointing us to a ‘kairos’ moment in our nation’s history. Will you be a part of this movement? With your help – your time, talent and treasure we can abolish abortion and restore culture! Perhaps just start by joining the country in prayer for human life by visiting www.9daysforlife.com. And remember, through our prayer and action let us always reach out in mercy to those who are wounded by this culture of death. In that spirit please spread the word about these two upcoming Project Rachel/Entering Canaan Retreats taking place for mothers who have experienced abortion this weekend and for fathers February 18th.
It’s also not too late to join some of the local marches – see the entire list attached as there are still a few more to come in the area! And as always we need more people – especially men to come and be a consistent prayer presence at the abortion facility in Toledo. Contact Bob Schoen at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Thanks for all you are doing for the pro-life cause! Let’s not stop now, let’s keep marching!!!
For the King!
