On our recent FORTITUDE online event, we announced that a handful of generous donors pledged to double all contributions to 40 Days for Life up to $121,000.

To make a long story short ... 1,323 faithful people responded to that matching challenge ? and the match was successfully met!

Thanks to everyone whose prayers and financial support made this possible.

Clearly, God wants this life-saving work to continue, and we trust Him to guide us as we move forward together. With God's grace, we believe that more lives will be saved and more souls will be touched over the coming year.

If you didn't have a chance to contribute yet, but still wish to make a tax-deductible gift to 40 Days for Life, please visit:

If you missed the webcast, we also announced the dates for the next 40 Days for Life campaign:

February 14 ? March 25

Applications for local leaders who wish to host a campaign will open Friday, December 1.

(You only need to apply if you wish to lead a local 40 Days for Life. No application is required to participate in a local effort.)

Could 40 Days for Life make a difference in your community? Are you the one called to lead this effort in your city? Keep these things in prayer over the days and weeks ahead.

Thanks for all of your prayers and support for 40 Days for Life ? as we now prepare for 2018!
