Denise Mountenay, founder of Canada Silent No More and leader of Endeavour Forum's NGO Canadian team at the UN, is featured in a documentary on population trends. The documentary includes a Chinese man having difficulty finding a wife, a female journalist from Uganda where they have the highest number of children under the age of 15 in the world, and Denise from Alberta, Canada, battling the UN's pro-abortion policies. The documentary is entitled "Misconception" and was shown at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in April 2014.
Molly White of Women for Life and one of the leaders of Endeavour Forum's NGO US team at the UN, won the Republican primary in Texas. House District 55 against a 3-term 'moderate' Republican. She does not have an opponent in the midterm election in November. The primary was the deciding factor, so she will be in the Texas State legislature in November.
Luke: l: 39-4l: "And Mary arose in those days and
went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Judah
and entered into the house of Zachariah and saluted
And it came to pass that, when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit."
Lord, we pray that You help us save the lives of babies in the womb. We ask in Jesus' Name, Amen.
