40Days WHEN YOU SHOW UP ... THEY DON'T

40DO 40DC
Kickoff Event February 18, 2015 Closing Event March 29, 2015
“Former Planned Parenthood workers have said that the no-show rate for abortion appointments goes as high as 75% when people are peacefully praying outside. That’s 3 out of 4 moms who never make it to their appointments because of your presence! “

     This year’s Spring 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting for Life began February 18th  and ran through March 29th, 2015.  This is a worldwide movement to protect mothers and babies from abortion happening in 252 cities and in 19 countries.  Mississippi has one surgical abortion mill, Jackson Women’s Health Organization  located at 2903 N. State Street, and we are praying that God will help us close this facility of death.  We prayed 7 days a week from 7 am to 7 pm during 40 Days For Life, however you are welcome to come out and pray all during the year and be a part of this great movement for Life.

    The 40-day campaign tracks Biblical history, where God used 40-day periods to transform individuals, communities … and the entire world. From Noah in the flood to Moses on the mountain to the disciples after Christ’s resurrection, it is clear that God sees the transformative value of His people accepting and meeting a 40-day challenge.  40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion.It draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:  Prayer and fasting, constant vigil, community outreach. 

      At the end of this Spring campaign, there were 493 babies reported saved worldwide.   Many Moms turn away and keep their baby and we never know.  We have had some come back and say “Thank you for being there and here is my baby that was saved because of you.”  We are the visible sign of God’s love and we want to share this love and hope to the Mom that thinks she has no hope. Abortion is not a safe procedure as some think, as it ends the life of an innocent human being.  We invite you come out to Abortion Mill and be that visible sign.  We will praise and thank God for helping us save lives. 

      Mother Theresa once said “I don’t have to be successful, I just have to be faithful”.  Prolife Mississippi is faithful and we ask that you come and be faithful with us.  For more information, go to www.40daysforlife.com or email us at plm@prolifemississippi.org or call 601-956-8636.

Pure Life - Pure Power Youth Conference - Pure Success

Wednesdays in February PLM teamed up with Crossroads of Life Church in Byram to host the “Pure Life – Pure Power Youth Conference”. God's enemies tried their best to destroy this very necessary teaching for our youth today, and we were forced to delay 2 nights of the conference, but we pushed through with spectacular results.

Many of our youth today walk down the path leading to trouble and heartbreak simply because they don't believe they are worth anything better. Kelsey Hall started off the events by blowing that lie out of the water. God used her speech on “True Worth” to lead one young lady to the Cross – We have a beautiful new sister in Christ!

Ashley Sigrest taught “Purity and Abstinence” and backed it up with her personal testimony. The truths revealed in this session were so powerful an entire room full of teenagers went completely silent. Even the crickets were quiet.

With the previous two weeks as a foundation, Brian Alexander delivered a teachings on “God's Plan for the Family” which is marriage, “Birth Control” so that when the time comes they can make Godly choices about family planning, and “Abortion Apologetics” so that the lies of abortion would be exposed, and the youth would be able to successfully debate their peers on these issues.

Angie Hammond connected all these teachings with a speech on “Covenants”. Not only the covenant of marriage, but also covenants of purity, faithfulness, trust, respect – all the things God has demonstrated to us through the ages.

We finished the conference with a “Closed Door, Open Forum Q&A” The youth were encouraged to anonymously write out any questions they had while the speakers held a brief meeting with parents. That meeting was vital for parents to become comfortable with the speakers, because they were asked to leave while the youth's questions were answered. ALL of their questions – nothing was off limits. We wanted to provide a good and Godly source of information rather than have the youth “phone a friend” or “Ask the internet”

The results were amazing – Nearly 200 questions were submitted! After skipping over the duplicates there were still over 100 unique questions that were answered, and that was after discussing these topics for 4 weeks. It just shows how necessary this event was, and what a blessing it is to our youth.

We have been asked repeatedly if there will be a repeat of the Purity Conference... ABSOLUTELY! While details are not yet available, Pro-Life Mississippi and Crossroads of Life Church are already planning another event this fall. All of the original speakers have committed to returning, but we are planning this as a one day event so that more youth can attend. Details will be announced as they become available. If you'd like to plan a similar event in your community please contact the PLM office.
