The team in Fayetteville took a bit of a Super Bowl approach to their opening rally this past weekend. After all, we call these events kickoffs, so there?s an obvious tie-in to football right away.

Amie in Fayetteville says a local pastor offered an inspirational pre-game talk, ?regarding the opposition at hand. He encouraged us to sign up for vigil hours, to remember our commitment to Christ-like behavior and not to grow weary in this battle.?

She referred to the campaign?s most faithful volunteers as ?hall of famers,? and noted one couple who surprised her by arriving in Green Bay Packers attire ? and not the gear of the home-state Carolina Panthers. Others displayed ?score cards,? showing the international total of 11,165 babies reported saved during 40 Days for Life efforts.

?During the rally,? Amie said, ?a young soldier approached us to share his dismay that the mainstream media portrays our actions as hostile, when he has witnessed the exact opposite.?

She said the rally left local volunteers energized ? and ready, through teamwork, to work towards victory.
