Matt Britton, the 40 Days for Life board chair, recently had the opportunity to visit local leaders and volunteers in four California cities ? offering encouragement and thanking them for their hard work.


In Mountain View, he and Bob, the local leader, prayed with a group on a busy street corner in front of the local Planned Parenthood center ? then met with the Real Options team, who provide life-affirming resources right across the street from Planned Parenthood.


Ron and Howard, longtime leaders of the 40 Days for Life vigil in Napa, met and prayed with Matt outside their city?s Planned Parenthood facility. Isidro has taken on the leadership spot with this campaign ? but Ron and Howard brought the first 40 Days for Life vigil to Napa in 2008. This is their 17th campaign!


It was prayer with the volunteers again at Planned Parenthood centers in Walnut Creek and San Rafael. At both locations, Matt was able to pass along stories about the international growth of 40 Days for Life ? and how more than 12,000 babies have been spared from abortion during 40 Days for Life vigils since the first coordinated campaign took place nine years ago.
