Semo Life-Chain Sunday October 9 (Time Corrected)Posted Wednesday, October 5, 2011, at 4:32 PM
On Sunday, October 9, at 2:30pm-3:30pm, Christians representing many area churches will be meeting along both sides of One-Mile Road and Business 60. This will form a cross. We will be showing our support for the right to life and personhood of the unborn and our opposition to abortion.
This is not a protest but a prayer meeting. We will be silently praying for the leaders of our nation, state, county, and local leaders. We will be praying for those women who are expecting the birth of a newborn. We will be praying for God's hand of love and comfort on those women who had the unfortunate experience of having had an abortion. we will also be praying for mothers who are facing economic hardship in raising their children. It will also be a time of repentence for our lack of compassion and concern, our neglect of standing up for the unborn, and our lack of involvement.
We hope and pray that more churches will be involved than there were last year. We hope and pray for an end to the awful holocaust of abortion in our country. We hope and pray for God's mercy to rest on those politicians and judges who support the supposed right to abortion.

My wife Susan (Sue) and I have lived in Soddard County since September of '96. We both graduated from Bible Missionary Institute, our denomination's small four year Bible college in Rock Island, Illinois. I was born and raised in Pomona, California while my wife was raised in Monmouth, Illinois. I am an ordained minister in the Bible Missionary Church. We attend and are members of the Dexter Bible Missionary Church. I've been employed by Tyson Foods for 14 years. My wife is a CNA. I've always been conservative in my political views and have always been active in politics and the Pro-Life movement. My politics have not always been Republican. From 2003-2009 I was vice-chairman of the Prohibition National Committee, the steering arm of the Prohibition Party. In '09, I joined the Constitution Party of Missouri. But, I've been attending the GOP rallys and club meetings since last year and have been campaigning for certain Republican candidates since we moved to this area. I'm on the SEMO Life Chain Committee.
