“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
At Family Policy Alliance of Georgia, we have a BIG vision! We strive for a Georgia where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive and life is cherished. To do that, we identify key electoral districts, recruit candidates, get involved in elections, lobby at the Capitol, provide resources to the church and business community, develop new legislation and innovative messaging, train statesmen, and much more.
Thankfully, we now have some additional help to accomplish all of this in the Peach State. Mitch Prosser, a pastor from Augusta with a wealth of political experience, has agreed to join our team as Deputy Director for Political and Policy Advancement.
I’m so thrilled to have Mitch on the team — he is a powerful asset for our movement. He will be working with us to help elect candidates who share our values and to promote positive legislation at the Capitol. Mitch and his family truly live out their love of Jesus Christ. He possesses a passion to see God honored in the public square. His talent and insight truly stand out. Please send Mitch a note welcoming him to our team.
In Washington, D.C. (something to pray for): A ban on most abortions of preborn children after 20 weeks passed Congress this week by a strong majority vote of 237-189. This is great news! Two things to consider, however. First, we need to do more as a movement to bring change to the Democrat Party. Only two members of that party determined that developed babies of 20 weeks gestation, with beating hearts and feeling pain are worth saving. We have to do more to make life a bipartisan issue! Second, this bill passed with exceptions for rape and incest. I refuse to believe that 24 members of Congress would have caused the bill to fail because they believe preborn children resulting from rape and incest are not worthy of the same protection. We can do so much more together to honor and protect these children and their mothers. It’s right to cheer for the bill’s passage and to pray that, somehow, it can reach the President’s desk. It’s also right to pray for continued momentum for our movement and to ask more of our politicians.
In the 26th House District of Georgia (something else to pray for): I want you to be among the first to know that we will soon be announcing our endorsement of Tina Trent for State House in Georgia’s 26th District. Tina has an incredible story, and she decided to run after the only other candidate in that race publicly defined life as beginning at 24 weeks gestation (an unacceptable position that he has since attempted to clarify). We are excited to support Tina! To learn more, visit her Facebook page.
In New Mexico (yet another item to pray for): While our team is growing here in Georgia, we are so thrilled that our alliance is growing in New Mexico. Vince Torres has agreed to take the helm of Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico, filling a major void in that state. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. We now have more than 40 states in our movement, and we look forward to continuing to shine a light all across our land.
In His service,
