On the road from Tulsa: young mom talked out of an abortion!

Whenever you listen to God’s calling you will feel rewarded and fulfilled. Life isn’t necessarily easier, but you feel at ease and encouraged to keep persevering. Trai and I were able to experience this fulfillment in Acquire the Fire Tulsa first hand. While working the booth we were approached by a girl who we can only guess was fifteen or sixteen who questioned us about why we do what we do. Why leave our homes, quit school, quit our jobs to fight for life? We talked to her and expressed that this is what we believe is right, and that God had called both of us to participate in this tour. After some thought she proceeded to tell us she was eight weeks pregnant, and considering an abortion. That is until she saw that there were people who believed it was so wrong that they would leave their comforts behind and defend the preborn. God used us to save her child! We were, and still are ecstatic! It was amazing to not just know that some where along the line we were making a difference, but meet someone who heard the message and decided to give her child the gift of life. We will never be able to forget this!

Tulsa was a great event even beyond this! The Holy Spirit moved in a great way and many teens came to Christ. Many others were filled with the spirit and worshiped whole heartedly before the Lord. I don’t know what it was in Tulsa that set it apart, but I know I will never forget this weekend.

On the road – from Nashville

nashvilleNashville was a great time for Rock for Life. We traveled around the city and got to make friends all over the place. A shout out to Rebecca Cicione and Christyn Trelow for being awesome hosts and giving us somewhere to hangout all week.

We visited Rocket Town and enjoyed a Bible study and potluck dinner with a group there. All the way around it was just an awesome city, the people were more outgoing and helpful than ever could have hoped for. This attitude really shown through at our experience at Acquire the Fire.

At Acquire the Fire we had a blast as always and got to meet a lot of people. We don’t know if it was just southern hospitality or what, but we had tons of opportunities to teach and share, as well as get to know a ton of people from Nashville and it’s suburbs.

I was able to talk to one women, Lisa Cherry, who told me the story of her grandchild Esther, who was recently lost pre-birth. It’s a tragic thing, but she is honoring Esther by using her story to protect the sanctity of life and make a stand against injustice. Check it out here: http://www.frontlinemoms.com/2013/02/21/esther-kate-taught-grammy/

Over all Nashville was awesome and we’re both expecting San Antonio to be the same!

Thanks for all your prayers and support.  We could not do this without it!

From Atlanta!

calebatlantaATFAcquire the Fire Atlanta was a great success at the Rock for Life table. Trai and I (Caleb) had a blast seeing a new city and meeting lots of new people. We had the opportunity to educate many people about what it means to be pro-life as well as introduced many other people to Rock for life as an organization. This being only my second Acquire the Fire event it was surprising how many people have not heard of Rock for Life before, especially considering how long we have been around. The environment was very conducive for having conversations with the youth as well as their families and pastors. Over all we are both very pleased with how this event went and excited for our next tour date in Nashville on Friday. If you’re interested in following us on our journey check the Rock for Life Instagram page as well as our facebook. We will be posting pictures and videos daily!

It was also amazing to see how many youth come to know Christ through Acquire the Fire’s ministry. One girl in specific who spent a lot of time at our table talking to us and asking about Rock for Life came to us at the end of the event and told us that, “Jesus had Captured her heart.” It was awesome! I am definitely looking forward to more of this on the tour.

We not only met new people at the events but also stayed with two awesome host families this weekend. A very special shout out and thanks to Scott, Rhonda, and Erin Lynch as well as Brian and Annie Bollinger! These people opened up their homes to us and gave us a well needed place to crash after driving and working our events. If you’re interested in helping us on our trip by being a host contact us through email or facebook, We will be in your town someday.

2013-02-14 10.04.39As of right now we are looking to log 7,631 miles this spring, bringing the pro-life message to thousands of young people all across the country.  This work is very important to us but there are some expenses involved.  The biggest is FUEL – UGH!

The Rock For Life RED BULLET – the name our red van has been given, gets about 12 miles per gallon.  We need about 636 gallons of fuel.  Right now the national average is $3.63.  Our total fuel bill this Spring will be $2,308.68.  Will you help us reach our goal?

Please prayerfully consider pitching in to help us with our fuel bill.  You can do so by clicking on the donate button in the upper right hand corner on any page of our website, sending a check to Rock For Life, PO Box 333, Locust Grove, VA 22508 or making a donation over the phone with a credit card.  Just send an email to info@rockforlife.org with your phone number and a good time to call and someone will get back to you.

Thank you so much!

Please keep our trip in your thoughts and prayers.  Not only that we get our expenses covered but also that the Rock for Life team is safe, heathy and that we are effective at reaching as many young people with the pro-life message as possible.

We want to see abortion end in our lifetime and we will do all that we can, with your prayers, help and financial support of course, to make that happen

Thank you again!
