Today, we drove into snowy Pennsylvania. The first stop was at Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania. Neither the rain nor the cold dampened the enthusiasm of our Young Women for America (YWA) members as they and their friends gathered next to the pink CWA bus. Anabelle Rutledge, the National Director of YWA, talked about the importance of this generation engaging with the culture and voting their values. Katie Kenlein, our YWA Chapter leader at Grove City College, told her fellow college students that it is their responsibility to speak up and defend our faith and freedoms.
Down the road in Monroeville, we had a great meet and greet at Grace Life Church, with about 40 people gathering. We so appreciate the great hospitality provided by Pastors Buck and Amy Schafer. Pastor Buck shared some thoughts about the state of our nation and how change will come when Christians are engaged in the election process. Among the others sharing with the group was Toni McFadden, pro-life activist from Pennsylvania, who shared her amazing story of God’s redemptive power in her life. CWA’s Pennsylvania State Director, Dilonna Coran, emphasized that voting is important, but voting for those who will uphold righteous values is even more important. Lauren Glickert, YWA Ambassador from Grove City, encouraged the audience to be hopeful. Her generation is stepping up!
Wednesday evening, we held our first roundtable discussion and prayer time. East Liberty Women’s Care Center in Pittsburgh hosted our first roundtable. Penny Nance, CEO and President of CWA, was joined by Tiffany Gilbert, co-founder of the Women’s Care Center, retired Superior Court Judge Cheryl Allen, Toni McFadden, Dilonna Coran, and Lauren Glickert.
Watch their thoughtful discussion and anointed time of prayer.
Tomorrow we will continue to travel east in Pennsylvania.
