By Bud Shaver,
Albuquerque, New Mexico- Join Abortion Free New Mexico on Friday, April 1st for the launch of our new prayer initiative, “No Sidewalk Without the Savior, which coincides with Faith to Action Friday, outside of the University of New Mexico’s free standing abortion facility, UNM Center for Reproductive Health (UNMCRH). This facility performs late term abortions up to 24 weeks (6 months) of pregnancy.
The Spanish speaking “Isleta Church of Christ: Iglesia De Cristo” is the closest church (0.5 mile) from the UNM Center for Reproductive Health late-term abortion facility. After reaching out to, fellowshipping with and sharing a presentation with them about abortion in New Mexico and this new prayer initiative, “No Sidewalk Without the Savior” they enthusiastically agreed to allow us to meet on their property.
Since April 1st is the launch date for this new initiative and it coincides with Faith to Action Friday we will gather first at Isleta Church of Christ for collective prayer & speakers, then we will take a short prayer walk together to the UNMCRH abortion facility.
Join us for Faith to Action Friday & Launch of, “No Sidewalk Without the Savior”
- When: Friday, April 1, 2022 (10AM-11AM)
- Where: Meet at the parking lot of Isleta Church of Christ: Iglesia De Cristo located at 2424 Miles Rd SE, Albuquerque, NM 87106.
- Event Details: 10AM for prayer, special speakers and a short (0.5 mile) prayer walk to the UNM Center For Reproductive Health abortion facility concluding at 11AM.
In Matthew 18:20 Jesus tells us that, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Will you join us on the sidewalk at one of the darkest places in Albuquerque?
“No Sidewalk Without the Savior” is an effort to make sure that two people are prayerfully present outside of the UNM Center for Reproductive Health abortion facility every hour that they are open, because where two or three gather in the name of Jesus, He is present in their midst. When the body of Christ is present and availible, God is able to open hearts and minds to the reality of what is happening in our community and to also bring conviction to the women seeking abortions there.
Abortion Free New Mexico is asking the pro-life community to come together and volunteer for just a one-hour weekly or monthly commitment at a location where the hope of Christ is so desperately needed. Will you join us to make sure that Jesus Christ is brought the sidewalk at one of Albuquerque’s darkest places?
Can YOU spare one hour and bring a friend or family member out to simply pray for the moms considering abortion and the precious babies in their wombs?
“Over the years we have had countless women come and tell us that because we were present, they chose life. Your presence is sometimes the sign that these women are looking for when they go for an abortion. You are essential and your prayers are necessary to make our city and state Abortion Free,” stated Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico
