Amie, the local leader in Fayetteville, said more than 50 people took part in what she called the ?putting your heart in it Valentine kickoff.?

She noted the determination of several of the volunteers who will be taking part in this year?s vigil. ?There was a man recovering from double knee replacements. One speaker was toting an oxygen tank since changes in the weather had triggered breathing difficulties. We had a young female student on crutches recovering from a recent surgery and a young man in a wheelchair. Nothing was going to stop them!?

Kickoff speakers included Pastor Johnny Hunter of LEARN, Pastor Bobby Fulmore of? Malloy Grove Freewill Baptist Church (shown below) and Helen Rogers of AGAPE Pregnancy Support Services. "They shared experiences? in their work to protect the unborn and reiterated that prayer was first and foremost in this battle with evil."

Because this campaign encompasses a wide geographic area, ?we were fortunate to meet, face to face, the individuals from surrounding churches who will assist this 40 Days for Life campaign,? Amie said.

?God?s generosity will never be outdone!? she said. ?We put our campaign in God?s hands.?
