Day 41- Our Closing Rally: Thank you all!

10-13-16-united

 

 

And the Apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.”
The Lord replied, “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed,
you would say to this mulberry tree,
‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.”

-Luke 17:5-6

 

 

 

 

Do we believe that we can trust God?  Can we trust Him that He will close down 933 Liberty Avenue permanently?  Can we EVEN trust Him to eventually do what we pray for during every 40 Days for Life campaign– to end abortion?

There’s only one answer.  Let’s NOT get it wrong.  If He is Who He says He is, then we must believe Him.  He is the only One Who is COMPLETELY TRUSTWORTHY.  Let us continue to put our trust and faith in HIM.

It was a wonderful campaign with SIX confirmed saves, and three turn-aways!!  Thank You, Lord!  At least six lives who will change the world, each in their own unique way.

Speaking of lives who were saved, we want to share a recent photo of Carrieta and her beautiful baby girl, Adriel.  Carrietta and Adriel are pictured with the new car that our 40 days family helped to buy in Jamaica!  Nikki thought it would encourage you all to see that Carrieta was able to get the car thanks to your generosity. Thank you and God bless you!

 

God is at work in their lives! He moves in many mighty ways!

God bless you all!  Remember to trust the Lord.  Until next time, dear friends. 

Have a blessed few months!

    So excited and amazed to see Carrietta and baby Adriel in front of the car 40 days was able to purchase because of the generosity of this group, but most importantly that she has her baby today due to the sidewalk counselors.
