40 Days for Life

February 9, 2016

Ash Wednesday, February 10, 2016, will begin the 16th campaign for  40 Days For Life. Come join us & help save lives! We stand in peaceful, prayerful vigil in front of Planned Parenthood offering HELP, HOPE & LOVE to all who enter. There is so much help for any woman who may be despairing over her pregnancy. We need people to bring Jesus to the street corner to combat the lies told to these women. Won’t you help? Abortion is the #1 cause of death in the US. 1.4 million deaths a year followed by 611,105 deaths due to cardiac problems. Can you not act on this knowledge to change our culture back into a Culture of Life? We pray every day from February 10, 2016 through Sunday, March 20, 2016 from 6:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Help us please! www.40daysforlife.com/memphis or Libby Parks 901-355-8546.
