Quadalupe Workers Need Your Help!

is

The Guadalupe Workers are busy with several tasks–and we really need help!
Firstly, a mother whom we met a few years ago at the Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood was recently deported; her four children, however, were left behind.  Two of those children are older and will remain with their Aunt here in the U.S.  The mother, however, has asked the Guadalupe Workers to bring to her the youngest children, including the child rescued three years ago at the Planned Parenthood.  The paperwork is done and the plane reservations are made.  The trip, though, is leaving a large hole in our bank account, to the amount of about $4,000.  
Secondly, the Workers have begun putting together the first Michigan Sidewalk Counseling Symposium, scheduled for September 29.  This symposium is a cooperative effort with Helpers of God’s Precious Infants, Sidewalk Advocates, and others.  Confirmed speakers include Walter Hoye, Anne Scheidler, David Bereit.  These speakers are requesting only travel expenses in order to be with us on that day; yet, as you know, those expenses can be formidable (Walter and his wife are coming from California).
Thirdly, the Workers are still homeless.  In our last newsletter, we expressed the desire to own our own home in Detroit.  Just keeping up with the mother requests over the summer, though, has kept our account at subsistence  level.  So, we are still homeless, still looking.  Fine tuning the request a bit, specifically what we seek is a larger home (2,000 sq ft) preferably on the southwest side.
Finally, our commitment to being on the sidewalk remains essential to our work.  This summer, we’ve been going out on weekdays, thereby avoiding the escorts.  By God’s grace, we’ve witnessed several turn-a-ways and have gladly accepted some costs in helping these mothers.  
Please help us in any way you can; especially, remember us in prayer when we leave August 13 to return little Ernesto and his sister to their mother.  We are flying into Mexico City but will need to drive north about three hours in order to meet their mother–and I’ve heard horror stories about driving in Mexico! (Though it can’t be worse than Chicago.)

 

Thank you,
Edmund Miller,
President of Guadalupe Workers

Guadalupe Workers Volunteers

We are always in need for Volunteers to help out with the Guadalupe Workers monthly meeting for families!

  • The address is 4300 Central St, Detroit, MI 48210.
  • Volunteers 1:00-4:30 (Families 2:00-4:00)


The moms are in one room with their activity while the children are in 3 rooms by age; infants, little kids, and the big kids.

Volunteer jobs include:

  1. Drivers to pick up families and bring them to the event
  2. Childcare helper…….all you need is willingness to help where needed, follow the facilitator’s cues,
  3. Other…..food prep/serve, runner, sort and clean, table mover, hauling stuff as needed
  4. Childcare room leader- experience teaching, leading, coaching is helpful

We can never have too many volunteers! The best volunteers will take initiative to engage the children one-on-one toward building relationships. Volunteers have something to give, something to gain. We miss out when we stand on the sidelines. So if and when we find ourselves standing in a crowded room of kids, wondering what in the world to do….. let’s introduce ourselves by name and start getting to know someone of these wonderful children. Spend time. We are family! Give voice to other’s gifts, encourage them in their strengths. That’s our main job. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VOLUNTEERING. You make a difference!

Downriver Volunteers Needed to Help With Election

Right to Life of Michigan has identified people who are most likely to vote pro-life. We have the lists and the scripts at the Right to Life Resource Center, 2010 Eureka, Wyandotte (inside the mall on the corner of 20th & Eureka). You can make phone calls at home or bring your cell phone to the office. There are two land lines that can be used.

I intend to make phone calls each afternoon from 1-4 pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week. Will you join me?

I am also taking information door to door in my neighborhood. Let me know if you want to help in your neighborhood.

We have pro-life information cards to hand out at the polls. Can you take the day off and help? It would be great if there were people at every poll!

You can find all of the pro-life candidates at election.rtl.org/ballot.

We need your help in one way or another, to defend innocent life!

Dear Defenders of LIFE

I truly hope that you will mark your calendars NOW–we will again picket the Summit Medical Services abortion center on Saturday, Nov. 12th from 8:00am to 10:00am, 15801 McNichols Ave, Detroit (Corner of McNichols and Ferror Street).

PLEASE make every effort to be there. This will be the first Saturday after the election. If Hillary wins- we must show that our pro-life commitment is as strong as EVER!! We must be there to witness to the sanctity of LIFE and reach out to the mothers scheduled for abortion. There have been a number of turn-aways from Summit in the last month! So we have hope to save babies!

If Trump WINS– then this picket will seize the momentum going forward as we show our continued resolve to END THE INJUSTICE OF ABORTION!!

Please send this memo to your own lists. Post this memo on FACEBOOK! I will see you there Nov. 12th!!
