Congratulations to Sabrina Schultz, our July Defender of the Month! As the Director of Life Ministries for the Diocese of St Petersburg, Sabrina wears many hats in this very important role. She works closely with the Bay area's Catholic Pregnancy Centers, oversees the local 40 Days For Life Campaign, coordinates important pro-life conferences and events, speaks to all of the local Parishes about Life issues, and much much more! Sabrina also sits on the core planning committee for the Tampa Bay Celebration of Life Rally and directs the workshop committee.
An amazing testimony of Melanie Pritchard, Pro-Life Activist, who had major complications during childbirth. But because of the power of prayer, both mother and baby are healthy.
Congratulations to our June Defender of the Month~devoted pro-life missionary and veteran sidewalk counselor Christopher Gladu! Most Saturdays, you can find Chris ministering to abortion bound women and couples at one of the local abortion mills. Chris is also the Founder and Director of Helpers Tampa, a group dedicated to promoting local pro-life activities. Chris always shares interesting ways to stand up for life and is an encouragement to so many!

Way to go Huggies!

Adam and Elizabeth (Beth) Verigan
Adam and Beth have been faithful servants of Jesus Christ and the Pro-Lifers for many years. This beautiful couple has been married for almost 5 years and have two lovely daughters, Eden age 4 and Glory almost 1.
18 One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up. 2 “There was a judge in a certain city,” he said, “who neither feared God nor cared about people. 3 A widow of that city came to him repeatedly, saying, ‘Give me justice in this dispute with my enemy.’ 4 The judge ignored her for a while, but finally he said to himself, ‘I don’t fear God or care about people, 5 but this woman is driving me crazy. I’m going to see that she gets justice, because she is wearing me out with her constant requests!’”
6 Then the Lord said, “Learn a lesson from this unjust judge. 7 Even he rendered a just decision in the end. So don’t you think God will surely give justice to his chosen people who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8 I tell you, he will grant justice to them quickly! But when the Son of Man[a] returns, how many will he find on the earth who have faith?”
Wow! What an amazing event! We are all sad to see the first annual Tampa Bay Celebration of Life Rally end.
Day Two was filled with encouragement, education and excellent performances!
National Right for Life posted this story in their news this week. It is a good look at the biblical hope that women have in crisis pregnancies. The author of this post did a great job detailing the thoughts women have and the trials they can go thru and then used Truth to encourage and provide hope.
At our ministry meeting last Tuesday night I was shocked to learn about the Foster Care crisis right in our own community. Did you know there are over 3,000 foster children living in Pinellas and Pasco Counties? Pinellas County has more children in foster care than any other county in the state, and Hillsborough County has the second highest foster child population.
