Greeting CWA of Florida friends!

I cannot believe January is already gone. 2014 went by like a whirlwind, and 2015 has already begun to do the same.

Last year CWA of Florida ladies and gentlemen spent nearly 200 hours a week calling from June to November concerning the election. We consumed much coffee and many donuts and burgers. It was worth the time, and increase in weight gain, as we made an impact on the voter turnout. A special thank you to each one of you who participated. YOU made a difference!

CWA was contacted by Dr. Littell and Minister Jim Book of Kissimmee to help in the efforts to try and stop Planned Parenthood from opening an abortion center directly across from the hospital. One can view the abortion center from the windows on the maternity floor. We joined in the peaceful demonstration and had a wonderful turnout. The city council meeting was over flowing into the courtyard. CWA testified along with many others. Many days we lined the streets with people praying and singing. The center was put on hold. I am sorry to say that one judge decided to overturn the majority opinion, and the center opened. But CWA of Florida took a stand, and that is what is important.

We are running the Encourage-A-Legislator program this year and would love for you to participate. We assign you a legislator to pray for and supply you with postcards. You simply pray once a day and write a short note and/or prayer once a month to your legislator or government official. If you would like to participate, e-mail me with your name, address and how many legislators you would like to encourage. “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.” 1 Timothy 2:1-2 (NKJV)

We will be attending the Pro-Family events March 16 – 17 in Tallahassee. There will be a briefing on the March 16 at 7:00 p.m. and pro-life breakfast on March 17. We plan to visit as many representatives and senators as time allows. If you are interested in joining us, please call me at 407-697-5929.

We are looking for women, men and young people to start a local Prayer/Action Chapter. I will be happy to meet with you and help you start your group. Many chapters have started with only three or four attending. We are not looking for numbers only a willing person to say, “We need to pray and put feet to our prayers.”

There are many issues that God may be putting on your heart; CWA is here to help you. I hope you will support CWA of Florida with prayers, contributions and involvement.

God bless you as you continue serving HIM.
