Faith ... courage ... and a willingness to step out.

Those are the traits of 40 Days for Life local leaders! Now is the time to discern how God could use YOU during the next 40 Days for Life campaign from September 27 - November 5.

Applications to LEAD a local 40 Days for Life campaign will open just one week from TOMORROW!

So what kind of a person leads a campaign?

Some are young -- and some are not-so-young. From retired members of the military to stay-at-home moms ... from college students to doctors ... and even a few airline pilots.

Ever since 40 Days for Life began, God has taken ordinary people and helped them step into the role of local campaign leader.

And I want you to hear a few of their stories on this week's 40 Days for Life podcast.

These are impressive people -- but they're no different from you. They see the attacks on life in our culture ... and trust that God can use them to help end abortion where they live. They are proof that we are not helpless in the fight to end abortion.

And He does indeed use them to save lives and change hearts! Just listen:

We'll talk more about campaign leadership in the weeks ahead. Granted, this may not be for you. But you CAN contribute ... by PRAYING for all of those who will be making the decision soon to lead a 40 Days for Life campaign.

Please pray those of us on the headquarters team as we approve applications and begin to train local leaders this summer. This is God's work -- and we can't do it without His strength and guidance!
