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

National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children

Natl Day of Remembrance

On Saturday, September 8, 2018, Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and the Pro-Life Action League will co-sponsor the 6th annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children at 51 grave sites across the United States.

Pro-lifers are encouraged to carry on the spiritual mission of the Day of Remembrance throughout the year by visiting a grave site of aborted children or other memorial site to offer prayers of mourning for the victims of abortion.  Find the site nearest you here.

During your visit, you may wish to pray one of the following prayers prepared for the National Day of Remembrance:

Get Out To Vote

index

 

To find the candidates in your district who are endorsed by Right to Life of Michigan, go to www.rtl.org.

 

I’m sure that all of you have heard how close the race is between the Right to Life endorsed pro-life candidate John James and his opponent. 

We need all hands on deck to be sure that he wins and is nominated to run against and beat Debbie Stabenow for the U.S. Senate!!!

We need people to make phone calls right away to registered voters who have been identified as pro-life.  I can e-mail you the script and either 734 or 313 area codes.

Four people are taking pro-life literature to hang on doors of pro-life identified voters in Wyandotte and Southgate.  It takes about two hours and we need two more routes completed.  Can you do none?  It would be a great service project for a high school student on a bike.

At the polls on election day, Tuesday, August 7.  The busiest times are 7-9 am, noon and 5-7 pm.  All it takes is simply standing 100 feet from the entrance, smile at people as they go in and ask them to please vote for the pro-life candidate, John James.

There are some business sized cards at the office at 2010 Eureka, Wyandotte (corner of Eureka and 20th, in the small shopping mall) which you can take to hand out if you like.  There is also some literature for John James and Patrick Colbeck that you can take if you like.

Just respond and I’ll get the phone list to you or give details on the door to door route.  You can e-mail Debbie at:  wyandotterlm@gmail.com or call:  (734) 283-9753

Be sure to VOTE and remind your family and friends to vote.

 

Thank you! And God bless  you for all that you do to protect innocent human lives!

A Grant to Help with the Mobile Ultrasound Unit

ulta

On Wednesday July 25th, at the Troy Christian Chapel, the Right To Life of MI awarded a grant to help with the mobile ultrasound unit that helps many mothers choose life for their unborn babies in Detroit. Our Upper Downriver Right to Life member, Emmanuel (man on the right in blue shirt), drives this mobile ultrasound unit and the funds will be used towards marketing our services to women searching for free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and abortions. We have been looking at new ways to let vulnerable women know who we are and where we are.

The grant is awarded to Pregnancy Resource organizations that work to save the lives of the pre-born and their mothers from the horrors of abortion in the city of Detroit. Last year three centers received the grant and this year ICU Birth Choice along with Detroit Pregnancy Test And Help Center (2 Doors down from Summit on McNichols) will receive the grant.
