Ecclesiastes 3:1 & 2a = “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die.” Though the Bible states this fact, not everyone has the opportunity to be born and live. Sadly, new laws that are being passed in some of the States make it legal to murder babies before they have a chance to be born. They will never have a chance to reach their potential or accomplish what God had designed them for. May we, who have been given the opportunity to be born and live, do what we can so that these babies have their chance at life. This is no time to be passive.
February has been a real challenge for us. The weather, with all its snow, has caused churches to cancel services and laws that are being passed in some States have made a mother’s womb a death trap. Who would have ever thought that the wombs of women would replace the gas chambers of Germany as the place for murdering innocent people.
We did speak in 3 churches during the month and we had our display up at the youth rally in Wa-tertown. I also attended the annual board meeting for the Alpha Women’s Center in Milwaukee where we saw 4 new Pastors be elected to the board there.
This month we will be having our annual meeting at Waunakee Baptist Church, 5757 Emerald Grove Lane, Waunakee, WI on March 16th at 10:00 AM. We invite you all to come and be a part of what we are doing. We did not have any new people nominated to serve on the board so the 5 that were up for reelection will continue to serve.
Our annual pro-life rally will be at Faith Baptist Church, 8519 S 13th St, Oak Creek, WI on April 13th at 1:00 PM. I would like to encourage each church to plan on coming and even perhaps taking up an offering at their church for those who would like to support this ministry but are unable to come. We also are encouraging everyone to bring a package of diapers to bury me under and then give to our pregnancy centers.
I would still like to encourage Christian Schools to challenge their students to write an essay or prepare a video for our contests. You can get the information as to rules and guidelines from our web site www.bflw.org/essays or www.bflw.org/video. The deadline is May 1st, 2019.
Please be in prayer for our State. Our new Governor has not been very supportive of the pro-life position. We face some huge challenges not only in getting new pro-life laws passed, but also in keeping those we already have. We need to be as vocal and as active as we can be in fighting for those who are unable to fight for themselves.
Your servant for LIFE, Andrew K. Buhrow—Executive Director– Baptists for Life of Wisconsin
