(Shawn Carney) – Last night, David spoke at the record TENTH campaign kickoff event in Bryan/College Station. He’s visiting the 40 Days for Life location in McKinney, Texas today.
From Bryan/College Station back in 2004, we’ve seen God take 40 Days for Life to some far away (and some very cold) places. Here are a couple of stories from local campaigns facing challenging situations.
We refer to the current 40 Days for Life events as the ”spring” campaign. But don’t tell that to the folks in
Alaska! Anchorage has received more than 100 inches of snowfall already this winter. And it isn’t over yet.
Haylee Shields, the local coordinator, sent before-and-after photos showing the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood — before and after some of the 8-foot snowdrifts were plowed away.
All that snow has done nothing to deter the spirit of the volunteers taking part in 40 Days for Life.
“We’re gearing up and getting excited for what could be the best campaign we’ve ever had,” Haylee said.
“We have been spending time together in prayer, and we are trusting the Lord to do great things as we follow His will.”
Yes, it’s cold. And yes, there’s a WHOLE LOT of snow. But many are answering the call to take a public stand against the evil of abortion.
“Please remember that we are the visible sign that the church of God will not stand idly by while abortions are being committed in our communities,” Haylee told local volunteers. “You can make a difference in this fight for life!”
