40 Days for Life--Fall 2011 Results

The results are in the for the 40 Days for Life fall campaign that went from September 28 until November 6.  Here are some of the numbers:
301 locations across North America and around the world had a 40 Days campaign.
135,000+ participants.
4000+ churches involved.
732 confirmed lives saved.
8 abortion workers quit.
One encouraging story came out of Stormlake, IA.  Sue Thayer worked for Planned Parenthood in Stormlake for 17 years as the manager of the facility.  This year she was outside the building leading the 40 Days for Life campaign in front of her former employer!

The numbers for 40 Days for Life since its beginnings in 2007 are truly amazing for an organization only four years old:
1,663 individual campaigns.
422 cities across all 50 states and 13 countries.
500,000+ participants.
14,000+ churches involved.
61 abortion workers quit.
18 abortion facilities closed.
5,045 confirmed lives saved.
This is truly an amazing work.  It is centered in prayer and I believe that is why the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is blessing this endeavor.  The church is fighting this evil with its head, heart, hands, and from our knees.  The next cycle of 40 Days for Life starts February 22, 2012.
