Hudson, New York
Hudson vigil leader Pastor Craig shared that he was moved to launch a 40 Days for Life campaign in his community after Gov. Andrew Cuomo celebrated a barbaric new law legalizing abortion up to the day of birth by lighting up landmarks across the state in pink.
“We’re called as God’s people to stand for what’s right…” he said. “Regardless of what popular opinion is, regardless of what slander comes your way because of it, God’s shown us what’s right.”
Pastor Craig used the kickoff rally to encourage his volunteers to take heart amidst difficult days. “The tendency can be to get down, to not do anything, to watch the news, to get discouraged,” he said.
“[But] we are spirit-filled, blood-bought children of God, filled with light, filled with life, who are called to be instruments of change, vessels for God to use to bring light to darkness!”
