Pastor Ed Martin and the blessed saints in Jacksonville, Florida, are continuing the battle for the lives of their preborn brothers and sisters.  All over the country this battle is being won in the streets.  “for everyone born of God overcomes the world.  This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.”  1 John 5:4.  Do you believe this?  Me too, and therefore I am greatly encouraged.

Enjoy!    ~ Flip


Dear Family for LIFE,

 Today we had our first Pastors Stand for LIFE today. 



 We had pastors share with 50 – 60 people the evils of abortion and how God expects us to combat it.



Pastor Tim Nelson, Hope Baptist Church, brought his youth group.



Anthony Johnson, Jacksonville Jaguars chaplain, told them how much Jesus loved them and what He expected of them.



Rob Barnaby, their youth pastor read from Matthew 7:13-14 telling them how the gate to destruction is wide, encouraging them to choose the narrow gate to LIFE and follow its straight path.



This youth group from Hope Baptist comes EVERY Saturday morning.  Some of them stand vigil even when they are on spring break!



They sacrifice their Saturday mornings getting up at 6:30 a.m. to be the arms and legs and voice of Jesus, because they “Hope in Christ”



Bianca, standing between her youth pastors, Rob and Ruthie, presented her senior photo essay on why “Abortion should be ILLEGAL” and received an A++!



Hope Baptist Youth Group is an integral part of our Family for LIFE and they invite other youths to join them as they try to save their peers from the tragedy of abortion.



By the way, our group this Saturday, representatives from about 10 churches, was so large that we had to straddle the driveway leading to A Woman’s Choice of Jacksonville, the grey building behind the vigilers (on the left of center in the photo below).




Next Saturday, March 31, please join us for two events, our last during the 40 Days for LIFE. 


At 8:00 a.m., we will have a Memorial Service for the Unborn on the sidewalk at 4131 University Blvd.


Also, at 8:00, there will be the 100+ Man March starting with Mass at Prince of Peace Church followed by a 3.8 mile march for men only (The men want to “carry their weight” in this organized effort to rid Jacksonville of abortion! Ladies, you are welcome to join us on the sidewalk or stay at Prince of Peace Church and pray as your men march for LIFE. )  Their route will encompass the 3 operating abortion facilities in Jacksonville. 


If you would like more information about either event, please email me.


God bless you!
