Missourians: Did You Know We Had a Pro-life Win?

By | Missouri | No Comments

I wanted to pass along a piece of good news. Last month, Missouri won another victory for life when a federal court rejected a lawsuit from the Satanic Temple, challenging the state abortion informed consent law. In the lawsuit, the Satanists claimed the pro-life law saving babies violated their religious beliefs.

You can read here about the court decision.

No action is needed except to thank our God for Missouri’s pro-life Attorney General Eric Schmitt and his office and their competent defense time and time again concerning our good pro-life Missouri statutes regarding abortion.

Join me in proclaiming Psalm 100: “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”

If you have any questions, please contact me.

In gratitude,

Pro-life Missouri Taxpayers Were Just Delivered a Blow

By | Missouri | No Comments

Missouri Supreme Court Overturns Law Blocking Taxpayer Dollars to Abortionists.

Pro-life Missouri taxpayers were delivered a blow on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, when the Missouri Supreme Court ruled the Missouri General Assembly unconstitutionally stripped Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood.

The court’s decision stated that the Missouri General Assembly violated the Constitution when lawmakers blocked Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood. The Republican-controlled General Assembly’s budget-writing strategy has defunded the organization more than $1 million since 2018. In the 6-1 high court decision, Judge Zel Fischer was the only one siding with the state in the case.

Read the court decision.

Please pray for mothers who are facing “unplanned pregnancies” and feel their only choice is to end the life of their child. Please pray women who find themselves in crisis pregnancies will find help at a Christian- based Crisis Pregnancy Center where they will not only receive the emotional and financial help that they need but have the Good News of the Gospel shared with them.

“He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD.” Proverbs 17:15

Peace in Him,

Prayer Volunteers are still Needed! Join the 2020 Encourage-A-Legislator Program!

By | Hawaii | No Comments

More “encouragers” are needed for our Encourage-A-Legislator Campaign for the 2020 Hawaii legislative session. It is our goal for 2020 that not one legislator be left without both prayer and encouragement. Will you help us meet that goal?

Our legislators will be making important decisions on many issues that affect our state and families. Undoubtedly, much prayer is needed to restrain the enemy’s assault on our culture. Please sign up today!

About the Encourage A Legislator Program:

Our EAL program is one of our most important programs. When fully implemented, each member of our Hawaii state legislature (25 Senators and 51 Representatives), will be lifted up in prayer each week that they are in session and receive an encouraging postcard.  The EAL program is not an expression of political or public policy views. It is a program for encouragement and prayer for our state legislators. The goal is to simply uplift the legislator and to remind him or her that they are being prayed for regularly.

It’s easy! You commit to adopting a legislator and praying for them each week during the 2020 legislative session, which opened on January 15th and ends on May 6.  After praying for your adopted legislators, you need to mail the CWA of Hawaii provided postcard that is pre-printed with a meaningful quote and a corresponding Scripture verse. Simply write a few encouraging words on the card or just sign it, affix a postcard stamp and mail the card.

Are you interested? Now more than ever our leaders need our prayers and encouragement. 

Prayer moves the hand of God in the affairs of this state and nation!   I Timothy 2:1-2 commands us to pray for those in authority, “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good and pleases God our Savior …”

We are looking for your commitment today! Please reply by calling me at 808-965-9834 or contact me through email or regular mail, with your name and physical mailing address. I will then send your postcards and instructions as soon as I can after receiving your info.  You are needed!

Choose Life Plates are Still Available

By | Kansas | No Comments

I am writing today to give you a status update on the Kansas Choose Life License Plate project and to ask for your assistance. As a reminder, the Kansas Department of Revenue (KDOR) will begin production and issuing the specialty tag when we reach the threshold of 1000 preregistrations for the tags. We are nearly halfway to meeting the KDOR requirement.

Click here to read more about the license plate project.

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Kansas has set a goal to sell 125 additional specialty plate registrations by May 30, 2020. Thank you to all who have purchased the specialty plate. If you have not done so, consider the value to the pro-life movement in Kansas if cars across the state had the Choose Life tags. Choose Life America has this to say about the license plates:

  • All states allow specialty license plates to promote and/or raise funds to support various non-profit organizations within their state.
  • The Choose Life plate is now in 32 states and the District of Columbia and has raised over $28 million for the cause of life and adoption in those states.

Take Action Today! 

  • Print and fill out the back panel of the brochure, or go to chooselifeplate.com, to obtain a Choose Life license plate!
  • Encourage others to do the same! Print off or order brochures to distribute. Go to our website and print off the Choose Life brochure or email us to order brochures.
  • Involve your church! Approach your pastor to find out if you can distribute the brochure in church.

Pray with me that we will find favor in new areas of advertisement. May the Lord provide an increase of people willing to join this effort. Galatians 6:9 says, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

Thanks for all the help of organizations, newspapers, and individuals who not only ordered the tag but who are promoting the plates. Let’s do it again! The job cannot be done without you.
