Walk For Life, 2006
Those of you who read this probably knew Julie and I were doing the Walk for Life for our local Crisis Pregnancy Center . . . you probably knew this because we were calling you asking for donations. This year, I assigned the CPC Walk for Life as the extra credit for those needing a "boost" in my theology class. Many of them participated and we, as a group, were able to raise (the total figures aren't in yet) approximately 3,000 dollars for our local CPC!
Last year there were over 9,000 abortions in the Hampton Roads area alone; however, the local CPC has an 83% success rate in terms of convincing mothers of unwanted pregnancies to look to other solutions outside of abortion, and this is to say nothing of the many women who hear and receive the gospel because of the CPC.
I want to say a big "thank you," to all the students involved and especially to those students who went beyond the requirement for the grade, to raise some extra money for a great ministry, and to those who supported me and Julie. Thank You!
