“Do not call to mind the former things, Or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43: 18-19)
HAPPY NEW YEAR! It is a new year for each and every one of us – a time to look to the future. God entreats us not to “ponder things of the past.” Look forward to His new springing forth! God can and will do great things for you this year. He will make a roadway where you only saw wilderness. He will provide a refreshing river in the part of your life that seems to be a vast desert. Look for His hand through prayer so you will “be aware” of it.
Sadly, this New Year marks the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade court decision that legalized abortion for any reason during any time for all nine months of pregnancy. Yet, it is a new year. If we follow where God leads and search for His will in our lives, we can help God bring forth “something new” in people’s hearts and minds – a respect for ALL human life.
Be part of “something new.” Through you, God can “make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.”
NorthWest Families for Life, in union with many suburban churches and pro-life groups, invites you to

News from the last two Thursdays’ Forest View vigils:
** On Thursday, December 20 and 27, NO children lost their lives at Forest View!
** Because of a recent inspection at Forest View, it has been closed for the last two weeks for updating of the entire HVAC system. We were able to talk to one of the men doing the construction. His name is Brad and he asked us to pray for him and his estranged teen son. We pray that this season of love as shown by God’s gift of His son as our Savior will touch the hearts of these men and bring reconciliation in the New Year.
** We will back at Forest View this Thursday to offer help to the women and men who arrive between 7:00 am and 10:00 am. We stay and pray while the doctor takes the lives of the children. We are there until 1:00 pm to offer hope to the broken women who leave. Do you have this Thursday off? Could you come for even a half hour? You would be such a blessing!
