Today is the 4th day of the 40 days for Life campaign, and we're thrilled about the increased level of excitement we're seeing for this campaign!
Reading the daily devotionals from the National 40 Days for Life team and praying for an end to abortion in unity with pro-life people across the nation and eight other countries is one part of the 40 Days for Life campaign. These devotionals come with encouraging stories of successes, send in by campaign leaders from some of the 247 participating communities. If you haven't signed up to receive these devotionals yet, I encourage you to do so!
We'd love to be able to share your stories as well. Let us know your experiences as you pray at the abortion facility - send pictures if you have them! Send your stories and pictures to 40DFL.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us at the Vigil Site!
Have you committed to pray with us at the 40 Days for Life vigil site? We need everyone to come out and pray - the more the merrier! To see open vigil hours and to sign up to pray, check out the Hourly Vigil Calendar at www.40daysforlife.com/columbus.
New to the Columbus campaign this year is our participation in strategic community outreach. It's very simple, really. On three Saturday mornings during the campaign, we will go as a group into specific neighborhoods to go door-to-door telling people about the 40 Days for Life campaign, invite them to pray for an end to abortion and, if they are interested, give them some basic information about pro-life issues. You don't need any experience - we'll train you on what to say and do and send new people out with more experienced people. If you are able to walk and willing to be friendly and polite, then you're qualified!!!!
Please join us for one or more of the following Community Outreach Saturdays. Send an email to 40DFL.email@example.com to let us know which day(s) you'll walk with us and we'll send you information about where to meet us for training and materials. We'll go as a group into the neighborhood we'll canvass.
Thank you to the churches and groups who have adopted a day to provide coverage at the vigil site. It's not too late for your church, Bible study group, Mom's group, youth group - or any group - to adopt a day or half day! Just contact us at 40DFL.firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you'd like to adopt a day. You can see which days are available to be adopted by by visiting the Hourly Vigil Calendar on the local 40 Days for Life Website: www.40daysforlife.com/columbus.
