On Wednesday, September 27th, thousands of pro-lifers gathered in 715 cities across the globe for the kickoff of the Fall 40 Days for Life campaign. There are 4,876 local campaigns being held in 44 different countries. In just the first two days nine babies were saved from abortion.
At the Jackson, Mississippi service we had about 35 people in attendance. Dana Chisholm, President of Pro-Life Mississippi welcomed everyone and thanked them for coming. Ken Shelton opened the local kickoff in prayer. Deacon Nick Adam of St. Richard Catholic church was the keynote speaker. Pastor Trey Hammond of Crossroads of Life Church of God in Byram led everyone in singing "Cornerstone". Sister Dorothea Sondgeroth of St. Dominic Health Services closed the service in prayer.
If you have not signed up to come out and pray please contact Laura Duran at 601-540-4828 or Tammy Tillman at 601-956-8636.
Pro-Life Mississippi has had a booth at the state fair for years. This year we have had several of our volunteers out due to illness. Also with 40 Days for Life going on and our normal sidewalk counseling it has been hard at times to keep the booth manned. Last year the cost of having a booth and the badges for the booth went up.
You must understand the booth at the state fair is not about making money for PLM. As a matter of fact it cost us money every year for the booth and supplies. It is about getting the word out to the public about Life issues. This year however the amount of people coming to the booth had dropped dramatically and I was beginning to wonder if all the work is worth the effort we put into it. Then I received an email from Laura Duran, board member, who was working the booth on Wednesday the 11th. It was a picture of a man and his son (pictured below) that was saved from abortion because his son’s mother stopped by the booth last year and talked with one of our volunteers and picked up some brochures.
So to answer the question “Is the cost of the state fair booth worth it?” Without a doubt!
