Just to let you know, the past 30 days has seen an all-time record month for LifeSiteNews with over 4 million pages having been viewed by readers from around the world. We are astonished by this.

Yesterday, we had a one day record of 300,000 pages viewed. We are humbled to know that more and more people are turning to LifeSiteNews for exceptionally reliable and professionally researched and written Internet journalism on the life, family and related issues.

I must praise our staff for this growth. They are all competent and passionately dedicated to this often highly challenging work and are a joy to work with. They keep going when others would be tempted to quit such a seemingly impossible task. They continue because they have sure hope, not in themselves, but in the power of truth and of God's grace that can overcome all things.

I must also thank the many writers from other organizations and publications who have allowed us to re-publish some of their very best work for your benefit. They too deserve much praise for their dedication and courage and the quality of their writing. We are pleased that we have been able to provide a forum for their important work to reach a wider audience to further advance a culture of life and family.
