Hey, everyone! I just wanted to touch base with you guys about my recent discoveries. I have recently happened upon the information that the Susan G. Komen Foundation financially supports Planned Parenthood, a prominent center for many womens' health services, one among those being abortion. I was even more heart broken to find out all the companies and corporations that also support them. I can't even look in my pantry or garage and not see something that has financially supported this pro-choice movement. I want to ensure you all that I am digging in and doing my research and getting all the Godly counsel I need to find out all I can about where our donated money is going.
I do believe with all my heart that Susan G. Komen foundation is a foundation that has had an incredible impact on the development of Breast Cancer research for a cure. My mom is a living testimony to that. They have given an amazing $1 billion dollars to date directly to breast cancer research.
I will most definately still participate in the walk, because I know that I and my sisters and mom could and will be a light in a dark world. We will be walking alongside women, men, gay, straight, christian, agnostic, atheist, pro-life, pro-choice, democrat, republican, etc... for one reason... to help find a cure for this disease that has touched our lives in some way. I will have many opportunities to share the gospel, my testimony, and my faith with these people. Our whole team will be decked out with scripture and pro-life on our shirts, so no one could even possibly doubt what we believe in. Our team is called "Pink Peace" because of the unexplainable peace my mom experienced through her whole ordeal with cancer. Our team motto is "We Walk to Overcome", which comes from John 16:33, "I have told you this so that you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.". These words that Jesus spoke can make such a huge impact on the lives of these people I will be in the midst of. They will have no choice but to read those words on the back of my shirt while I am walking among them for 60 miles!! Amen?
I wanted to write this quick blog to let you know that I am aware of the situation and I am diligently seeking wisdom from the Lord in how I can make an impact. Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement and your accountability in letting me know about this situation. I am very thankful!
Please stay connected with this blog, as I will be posting more important information and decisions as they are made! And please stay in prayer for me as I am continuing this journey and seeking God's face. Please begin praying for the hearts of the people my team will come in contact with. That God would begin softening their hearts to His truth and that we may win souls for Jesus! I want EVERYTHING I do to be directly in line with God's will for me. Thank you ALL for your encouragement!
"May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Oh Lord."
