Recently, I was visiting with a long-time Life Network supporter when she said something that touched me. “I want to thank you and your team for all that you do,” adding, “I can’t think of an organization we support that’s doing more important work.
Now, there are many ministries and churches doing extremely significant work in our community. But I appreciated the external validation that what God is up to through Life Network is not only transformational, but literally life-saving for the abortion-vulnerable moms who choose life and their little ones.
I’d also like to turn those comments around and share my deep thanks for YOU this Christmas season. You receive my monthly emails because you serve as a volunteer … have committed to pray for us … financially support our ministry in some way … or, in some cases, all of the above. Thank you for your partnership this past year! The stories we share of hearts and lives being changed daily wouldn’t occur without you – and others in our community – willing to step in and say: I am here to help.
I think Paul’s appreciation for the Philippians expresses how I feel about you well. The Message paraphrases it like this:
Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued on in this with us, believing and proclaiming God’s Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present … Sometimes I think I feel as strongly about you as Christ does! (Philippians 1: 3-5, 8)
As you celebrate the birth and life of our Savior this month, thank you for your part in giving the best gift to the women and men we serve — the opportunity to choose life and then have an abundant life in Him! Blessings to you and yours this Christmas!
Grace and peace,
Life Network, President | CEO
P.S. As you consider your year-end giving, your financial partnership with us this Christmas season would be a tremendous help as we prepare for a fresh year of ministry. Our $150,000 matching challenge is still active, which means your gift before December 31st can have twice the impact.
