2019 Year In Review: Top 10 Highlights
Dear Pro- Life Friends and Ministry Partners,
It is hard to believe that 2019 has come and gone. It has been such a busy and productive year for our family and our ministry, the time has simply flown by. Your partnership with us in this life saving ministry has kept us encouraged and has made it possible for us to serve full time as missionaries in New Mexico, the late term abortion capital. When the lives of precious babies are on the line we must never sit on the sidelines, too much is at stake.
Thank you for believing in us, our mission to make New Mexico Abortion Free and for blessing us with your time, talents and your treasure. May we continue to sow into a culture of life in 2020 as we anticipate a pivotal moment in our country.
May God bless you and keep you and may His face shine upon you!

“Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.” (3 John 1:8)
We are a Christian missionary family serving in Albuquerque, NM. Putting our faith into action, for the past 9 years we have exposed Albuquerque as the late term abortion capital of the nation and have worked to bring accountability to an unregulated abortion industry that is killing children in their mothers wombs up to the day of birth.
In order to be the most effective in our pro-life ministry, we do this important work full time while homeschooling our children and raising them to have a biblical worldview. We rely solely on the provision of the Lord and individuals like you to provide for our daily needs.
We are pursuing and working toward an abortion free New Mexico, where every pre-born child is valued and protected.
We would be blessed to have you partner with us in this ministry. Your prayers and support are invaluable.
