40 Days for Life Kick-Off this Saturday, Sept. 18

Amanda Miner & Kelly Smith, Rachel's Vineyard

The worldwide 40 Days for Life campaign of prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigiling outside of abortion clinics begins this Wednesday, September 22. I've participated in this campaign a couple of times since it began in 2006; this year, I am one of the coordinators for Delaware Right to Life's Wilmington campaign.

Saturday is the 40 Days Kick-Off, and will take place from 8:30am-1:00pm at Church of the Holy Child, 2500 Naamans Road, Wilmington DE. It's a good place to find out about pro-life resources available in this area. Besides five speakers, there will be representatives from these organizations available at literature tables: A Door of Hope pregnancy center, Birthright of Delaware, Delaware Right to Life, A Rose and a Prayer, and Rachel's Vineyard. Great place to learn efficiently about the pro-life community and its resources in the Delaware area.
