from Rachel Hayes Chester County Leader – 40 Days for Life
The fall 40 Days for Life campaign home stretch is here with just another week and a half to go! Your help is needed to fill the remaining vigil hours on behalf of the unborn at risk. Please consider committing to an hour of prayer and peaceful vigil before the end of the campaign: Chester County 40 Days for Life
Though the official last day of our campaign is Nov. 3, we will be having our closing rally celebration at 4 pm on Sat., Nov. 2 at our vigil location. (map)
Come out to be encouraged and inspired at what God can do through our prayers and faithful witness as we hear from Steve Karlen the National Headquarters Campaign Director.
Here’s an excerpt from Karlen’s bio: “Steve got involved in the pro-life movement as a volunteer leader with the 40 Days for Life campaign in Madison, Wisconsin. Before long, he found himself at the center of a nationwide controversy as the health system at his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin, was secretly preparing to open a late-term abortion center on campus. Groups across the state looked to him for leadership. After a grueling 16-month campaign, the university health system cancelled its abortion plans, later citing the work of Karlen and his team as the reason for making that decision.”
