Christmas blessings from 40 Days For Life


Dear Deacon,

"I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all
the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been
born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord."

These words spoken more than 2,000 years ago by the angel
of the Lord to the shepherds tending their flocks remind
us that when God chose to come to Earth in human flesh,
He did so through the womb of a mother.

During this Christmas season, we give thanks for the
birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ ... and we
count the many blessings God has showered on 40 Days
for Life through your prayers and efforts:

 * 1,633 individual campaigns have taken place in 422
  cities across all 50 American states and 13 countries

 * More than 500,000 people have joined together in an
  historic display of unity to pray and fast for an end
  to abortion

 * More than 14,000 church congregations have
  participated in the 40 Days for Life campaigns

 * More than 1,800 news stories have been featured in
  newspapers, magazines, radio shows and TV programs

 * Reports document 5,045 lives spared from abortion --
  and those are just the ones we know about

 * Thousands of women and men have been spared from the
  tragic effects of abortion, and many have stepped
  forward to begin post-abortion healing and recovery

 * 61 abortion workers have quit their jobs and walked
  away from the abortion industry

 * 19 abortion facilities have shut down following local
  40 Days for Life campaigns outside their doors

On behalf of my family -- and the families of Shawn
Carney, David Brandao, Lauren Muzyka and Chantel Poisel
(our national team) -- THANK YOU for all you have done
to help make such a profound impact on our world.

As we prepare for the new year of 2012, let's
rededicate ourselves to protecting every child made
in God's image and likeness.

Merry Christmas, Deacon!

For Life,

David Bereit
National Director
