40 Days For Life: Tomorrow We Begin

We have the record number of cities participating - over 300, 15 of them - in Canada, including both Moncton and Fredericton. Now, we have to make sure we live up to our commitment and keep the vigil going:
On the eve of the largest 40 Days for Life campaign ever, I cannot wait to see what God has in store over these next 40 days!

After speaking at the 40 Days for Life kickoff event in Germantown, Maryland on Sunday night, I will be heading out to meet our national director, David Bereit, in Montana for a kickoff event there later this week.

The excitement has NEVER been higher going into a campaign!

This fall’s campaign is BIG. Let’s just look at the numbers:
  • 301 locations taking part from September 28 to November 6

  • hundreds and hundreds of church congregations joining the campaign

  • 48 NEW locations including Argentina, Puerto Rico and Germany

  • tens of thousands of people who will take part … and maybe more!
While those numbers are exciting, I really want to focus on a small number — ONE …

… and the one is … YOU!
Meanwhile two more abortion centers have shut down following the previous 40 Days for Life vigils. That makes sixteen abortion centers where 40 Days for Life vigils have occurred that have shut down. And it's only up to us to make sure that this number keeps growing.
