Thank You for a Great Year
But today, the last day of 2004, I wanted to spend a little time with you reflecting on our blessings. This has been a tough year in many ways for the pro-Life movement. It was a long string of battles, beginning with the lawsuit against the State of Idaho, dealing with the hostile atmosphere created in the Legislature by Speaker Bruce Newcomb; from there we went into primary contests around the state, then the annual Yard Sale, production of our Informed Consent booklet and the general election.
Now we prepare for the 2005 session.
I am grateful for my family and a handful of righteous men who have stood with me through the adversity and difficult decisions. I am grateful to the Boards of Idaho Chooses Life and Idaho Chooses Life Alliance – they and their families have sacrificed much over the year to help support the work. They are a great blessing to me and to the people of Idaho.
The donors and volunteers and prayer warriors sustain this ministry – and I ask the Lord’s great blessing upon them all.
I can assure you that we would never have made it through this long year without your support. I am encouraged by the emails and phone calls you make throughout the year. You are the great backbone of the pro-Life movement. I invite you to pray about deepening your involvement and commitment to the battle in the new year – we could certainly use more of your talents and time in the great struggle of our time.
And we are all blessed by the Lord’s grace in our lives. Like the patient father, he allows us to help Him mow the lawn. As difficult as it seems sometimes – being a part of His work is a great privilege.
May you and your family have a new year rich in God’s blessing!
