A Bittersweet Year
“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 3:12-14
On behalf of the Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico team and my family, I want to thank you for your faithful prayers and generous support of our ministry.
Over the past several days, I have taken time to reflect on all we accomplished together this year. Though we faced some unprecedented challenges along the way, we witnessed the provision and presence of the Lord and ultimately emerged as a stronger organization. For these reasons, I will look back on 2020 as a bittersweet year, fraught with both perpetual trials and newfound opportunities.
As we prepare for a new year, the work of Family Policy Alliance® will be more vital than ever before. Like 2020, 2021 will bring obstacles that seem immovable. And yet, if there is one thing we have learned over the years, it is that God can still use a faithful minority to move mountains.
In just over three years, we have grown from a small startup to a healthy organization with broad, bipartisan support throughout the state. Our lobbying work has been extremely effective, and our mobilization efforts have resulted in tens of thousands of emails, phone calls, and letters to elected officials at the local, state, and federal levels. Meanwhile, thanks to your year-end generosity, we are now on track to have the best fundraising year to date.
All this to say, Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico is healthy, growing, and thriving, and I am convinced more than ever that its best days lie ahead.
On that note, I will be sending an important message next week about the future of the ministry and its leadership. Until then, please again accept my deepest gratitude for your support this year, and best wishes to you and your family for a joyful and prosperous 2021.
