Sidewalk Advocates for Life's Video #1 of the Advanced Training Series!!

"Thriving on the Sidewalk: Taking Care of Yourself Spiritually"




from Rita Smith, (Missionaries of the Gospel of Life), Campaign Director, 
40 Days for Life/Norristown, 
Program Director, Sidewalk Advocates for Life/Norristown

The Sidewalk Advocates for Life was implemented by myself this past summer in an effort to effectively and with confidence counsel women/men in a crisis pregnancy entering Norristown's Planned Parenthood. For more information, use this link to Sidewalk Advocates for Life website. It is an amazing blessing for our local community in giving those in crisis the kind and loving help with pro-life alternatives/information that they so desperately need.

I am very grateful to Theresa, Annette, Brooke, Kathy, David, Luke, Marie, Mary, Melissa, Matt, Jason and Gideon who have taken the Sidewalk Advocacy Training at my home this past summer. Organizational folders that are very coordinated and functional with life saving literature were distributed to all the Sidewalk Advocates for Life/Norristown attendees. A few people have decided to become prayer partners and we are all so ever thankful to them.

For those of you who will view the video and feel that you are called in becoming a Sidewalk Advocate for Life, please let me know and I'll set up a Sidewalk Advocacy Training class at my home.

The next set of advanced training videos are being released. I am very excited to share with many pro-life prayer warriors this particular video sent to me by Lauren Mauzyka, Executive Director, Sidewalk Advocates for Life.

We are so excited to share with you Video #1 from our brand new Advanced Training Series, "Thriving on the Sidewalk: Taking Care of Yourself Spiritually"!

As promised, this is just one of twenty videos that we'll be releasing to all of you, gradually, in Sidewalk Advocates for Life over the next couple months in an effort to take your sidewalk training to the next level -- so exciting!! 
Video link: https://vimeo.com/154136565  (In the future, this will be housed in our Online Training HQ, but for now, will be featured at this link on Vimeo.)  


As you know this project was an incredible collaboration between many national pro-life leaders, garnering their advice and insight on a variety of topics that affect sidewalk advocacy. This particular video includes advice from Former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson, Former Planned Parenthood Manager Ramona Trevino, Pro-Life Wisconsin State Director Dan Miller ...and more! 
Since we have already shared this one video as a sample with the world, feel free to share with not only your Sidewalk Advocates, but everyone you know as we know it might be a blessing and inspiration to everyone in pro-life ministry -- or inspire others to join us on the sidewalk! (Note: The other videos we will ask and remind you to keep "in house," between Sidewalk Advocates for training purposes; those will also be password protected. However, this video is the exception.) 
Thank you for your many prayers, hard work and financial support of this ministry that has made this incredible project possible! We cannot wait for you to see the rest of the videos -- after a little more editing, they are coming soon! 
The mission of Sidewalk Advocates for Life is to train, equip, and support local communities across the United States and the world in “sidewalk advocacy”: to be the hands and feet of Christ, offering loving, life-affirming alternatives to all present at the abortion center, thereby eliminating demand and ending abortion.
