Greetings all you pro-lifers out there!!

Just wanted to update everyone about our awesome weekend in Birmingham, AL. I'm typing this from home because my sister got married this weekend, but I'll be back on the road on Monday!! Please pray for the newly married couple. Our weekend in Birmingham was amazing...The team stayed at the home of former Southern Walker, Shannon Johnson. Her family opened their home to us and showed the team some true southern hospitality and some good cooking. Thank you Johnson family for your generosity.

As some of you might have heard, Father Frank Pavone held a funeral service for three aborted babies at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville. Shannon, Brendan, and myself were present for the funeral and burial of Karen Esther, Enoch, and Rebekah...all of whom were found in a dumpster behind an abortion mill in Detroit, Michigan. There was standing room only within the Shrine as people gathered to pay their respects and give honor and dignity to the bodies of the three children. It was such a great reminder of the innocence and humanity of the unborn. Father Frank reminded those present that the purpose of the service was not to provide a political statement, but rather to give the respect and honor that is due to the bodies of these human beings. This respect and honor was denied them in their short lives. The three children were buried in front of the Pieta on the monastery grounds.

We are truly thankful for the generosity of those in the Birmingham area. At this point, we have about two weeks left. Keep praying for us as we finish the last leg of our journey!!!

In Christ,

PS the pictures you see are three from the funeral service we attended at Mother Angelica's Shrine, one from our host family in Lubbock TX and one of us praying outside the abortion mill
