In the spring of 2004, a student from McNeese State University asked me, “What can I do to work with other students around the country, in solidarity, to help end abortion?” I hear things like that all the time from the students I speak to. “What can I do? I have ideas, but I don’t know what to do with them. Can I really make a difference? I’m just one person.” When this student asked me, a spark went off in my head. I replied, “What if we got students to not only act in solidarity with others, but also with the children that are dying every day?” As soon as I said it, I knew God had set something in motion inside of me. At the time, I was one person working from the basement of my home with a computer, a web site, and a small e-mail list that I had been collecting for a few months. I wasn’t really sure what could be accomplished with that, but I offered it to God and started sending out emails. We asked the students to take a vow of silence for a day, wearing red duct tape with the word “life” or “silenced” and pass out fliers explaining their silence to fellow students. We asked them to wear pro-life t-shirts or make custom shirts with the pro-life message or wear red armbands to identify themselves as participants. Now, something that started its first year as just a few thousand students from 300 campuses has grown into a world-wide outpouring of love and action. Tuesday, Oct 15th will mark the ninth annual Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity, and ever year we have students from thousands of campuses in dozens of countries stand together in solidarity. We have heard of over a thousand girls who have cancelled abortions because of this day every year. Will you join us this year? Will you give up your voice for those who will never have one? Please go to silentday.org and register for this year’s Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity on Tuesday, Oct 15th. Even if you have registered in years past, please register for this year. Hearts are being changed, babies are being saved, and women and men are being spared the trauma of post-abortive pain. People are coming together in unity to promote a culture of life. Personhood is being restored on campuses across the nation. I really cannot take any credit for the success of this movement. It is only God who grants us the power to do this. I was one person who listened to God and, through Him, acted on the vision He gave me. If you have an idea, a vision or dream, don’t be afraid to stand up and let your voice be heard. Don’t doubt what you can accomplish with Christ. Don’t think that because you are just one person you can’t make a difference. “I have a dream”–a statement powerfully spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King Read More »
Stand True Pro-life Outreach turns TEN years old this month and we have an important challenge for you.
In the first ten years of Stand True’s existence we have seen literally thousands of babies saved and hearts changed. Through our work, we have seen hundreds of thousands of youth stand up and be a voice for their brothers and sisters who have no voice. We have watched as this generation shifts into the generation who WILL abolish abortion and we are excited to be a key player in this fight. While we mourn the need for our lifesaving work, we reflect back on the first ten years of Stand True Pro-life Outreach’s work and realize there are many reasons to celebrate as well. We fully recognize that we as an organization would love to put an end to this dark chapter in history where pro-life groups need to operate at all. We also understand that we can celebrate the amazing work God has done and will do though all of us because we chose to answer this call. I want to point out some of the highlights and amazing things God has done over the first ten years but first I want to issue a challenge. Will you Stand True with us by donating $10 to celebrate our ten-year anniversary and help us to end this abortion holocaust? We want to raise $10,000 in September to help us educate activate and equip this generation to be a voice for life. (We have raised $2,680 as of September 9th) Please click here https://donate.cornerstone.cc/?mid=STANDTRUE and make a $10, $25, $50, $100, $1000 donation. Donations can also be mailed to Stand True – PO Box 890 – Troy, OH 45373 or call 540-538-2581 to donate by phone. What ever you can give will help us fight to end abortion. When I left Rock for Life, an organization that I founded 20 years ago this November to start Stand True, it was a nerve-racking adventure to say the least. My wife and I had just three children back then; we have seven now. We had no idea where we would get the money to start the organization let alone money to feed our family but we knew this is where God was guiding us at this moment in our lives. We set up a small office in the basement of my house for me to work and started building the Stand True website. Before the website was built we were using one of the first social media outlets called Xanga to keep people updated on this new pro-life venture. The first Stand True E-news went out to about 50 people and now goes to about 100,000 people. Imagine if just one percent of the 100,000 people took this $10 challenge we would reach that $10,000 goal. Just ONE percent! Will you be part of that one percent? One of the first phone calls I received was from Janet Morana from Priests for Life. She and Father Frank wanted to talk to me about this new pro-life venture. They were very excited about Read More »
