More about the Mission

From the blog: The last couple of months have been big trigger months for me. Starting in December with the memory of my abortions, then January; the anniversary of Roe v Wade, followed by February with newly elected officials that are clearly pro-abortion with no regrets. It has been difficult to watch as people I know and love, people who know my story, defend their positions, stating they are personally opposed but… And I wonder. I pray. I ask God over and over again, when will this all end? And I tell God I’m willing. Use me, please. We can’t loose our children, our grandchildren to the pressure, the demands of a world going to Hell in a hand-basket.
