October 2020 Prayer Letter
I Corinthians 15:58 = “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” Paul had just concluded a dissertation on the fact that we are all going to face the reality of passing from this earth in death and that our focus ought to be on living and working in preparation for that day. The emphasis ought to be on serving the Lord as much as you can while still alive. As most of you know Nancy and I have gone through about with the Covid-19 virus. We have recovered and are pretty well back to normal (though I don’t think I’ve ever really been considered normal) and are back to being involved with all our ministries. We have been reminded by the doctors that we could get the virus again and well-meaning friends and relatives have urged us to isolate ourselves as much as possible so that we can stay alive. My purpose in life is not to stay alive. My purpose in life is to serve the Lord. He has already given me 75 years to live and I have had the privilege of serving Him for many years. I can’t think of a better way to meet my Savior than as a result of doing something for Him. With that in mind, I will continue to do whatever the Lord lays on my heart to do.
During the month of September Nancy and I were able to present the ministry of Baptists for Life of Wisconsin in 4 churches, and attend one of our Baptist fellowship’s annual meeting. I also was able to attend the rally for one of our pregnancy centers. All in all, we traveled over 1800 miles and the Lord kept us safe all the way.
The Lord has been good in allowing us to fill out our schedule through the end of February of next year. Our next pro-life rally will be April 17th, 2021 at Wyldewood Baptist Church in Oshkosh, and attorney David Gibbs will be our featured speaker. We would encourage you to plan on coming. I know you will be blessed.
I am working on a power point program for next year that will expose planned parenthood and their diabolical agenda. People need to know what they are involved in and what their real purpose is. I plan to use this as a Sunday school presentation as I travel to churches. If you would like to have me come contact me and I will be glad to schedule you.
I also want to remind you of our essay contest for 9th—12th grade students with the theme “The Potential of a Life”. The deadline is January 31st and the awards are $400 for 1st, $200 for 2nd, and $100 for 3rd. Encourage your young people to get involved. You can download the guidelines from our web site.
Thank you all for your prayers and support of this important ministry.
Andrew K. Buhrow—Executive Director—Baptists for Life of Wisconsin
