“As we are about to reach Day 20 of our 40 days of prayer, fasting, vigil and outreach, it is time to gather with pro-life members of the Mid-Missouri communities to share stories, enjoy refreshments and encourage one another, building towards a strong finish of our 40 Days for Life campaign,” said Kathy Forck, spokesperson for the Columbia 40 Days for Life campaign.
The rally will be held:
October 12, 2009 at 6:30pm
St. Andrew Catholic Church 400 St. Andrew Lane Holts Summit, MO
Speakers at the 40 Days for Life mid-point event include: State Representative Jeanie Riddle, State Representative and 6th District Senatorial Candidate Kenny Jones, 6th District Senatorial Candidate Mike Kehoe, and other prayer volunteers as they share about their experiences while praying at the vigil.
Music will be provided by the talented group “Renaissance” from southeast Missouri.
There is a lot of good news coming out of this campaign, too! On their website, Kathy Fork relates:
“Thursdays are the day that the Planned Parenthood in Columbia performs abortions. That is all they do on Thursdays, nothing else. Typically we see 15-20 young women go into the clinic for abortions on these days. This past Thursday, Oct. 1st, there were only 6 young women that went in for abortions. We have to believe that our prayers are working and that at the most 14 babies were saved as a result of the amazing turnout (or lack thereof). Praise God and let us remain faithful in our prayers!”
It is truly a blessing to have such a dedicated group sacrificing so much of their time to help rescue women and unborn children from the tragedy of abortion, but they still need your help. They continue to look for volunteers to keep vigil on the weekends and in the evening hours from 4pm to 7pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
