bpkesslerDear brothers and sisters,

Karen and I just returned from a whirlwind trip to the northwest. We had an opportunity to visit the families of four of our priests and minister to several congregation.

We had a wonderful time with Father Jim Wright and his wife Nikki in Hillsboro Oregon. Father Jim stays incredibly busy with a jail ministry, a ministry at a senior citizen home and his own church Holy Cross Community Church in Hillsboro. Jim and Nikki are in every way true servants of God and went out of their way to make a wonderful trip for Karen and I.

On Friday evening we had an opportunity to help them in their ministry at the senior citizen home where we enjoyed dinner and a great movie, that's right, they have their own movie theater.

Saturday morning we left at the crack of dawn for cottage Grove, in southern Oregon where Father Jonathan Landon and his family recently moved. Father David Conroy and his wife Darcy are at the moment living with father Jonathan and his wife Rebecca and their daughter Naomi. Father Jim was gracious enough to drive us down and we had a wonderful day with the two families discussing future ministry for both. Father Jonathan and Becky have a wonderful home embedded in the forest on a couple acres. We are all praying for Fr. Jonathan to secure good employment. He has just retired from the Army where he served as a chaplain, last in Colorado.

CEC For Life

Dear Friends,


Just a few days ago, Fr. Terry Gensemer traveled to Vitória de Santo Antão in Brazil at the invitation of Bishop Frederico Bastos and the 2012 Attitude Youth Conference. Fr. Terry was to speak at the Conference as the American representative of the pro-life movement. As soon as he boarded the plane, the obstacles began to surface.


First, the weather. In Florida, the airline announced that Hurricane Sandy stood between their plane and their destination...but they were going to take off anyway. With his phone and his Facebook, Fr. Terry quickly asked friends and family for prayers of safety and good travel, which God was faithful to answer. The plane landed safely in Brazil. But, of course, the battle was not over.

March for Life 2013: Forty years is far too long.
This year's March for Life will mark 40 years of legalized abortion in America.
We have an entire generation in this country that has never known a time when a preborn child was protected in the womb.  What they have known, is the death of over 53 million of their preborn brothers and sisters.  They have known a government that does nothing to protect the sanctity of life, and a culture that promotes death.
It is time to end that cycle.  Forty years of abortion is far too long.  Are you ready to join hundreds of thousands of Christians in our nation's capitol and call for the end of abortion?
Are you ready to stand with the generation that abortion has tried to destroy, and help build a culture of Life for the generations to come? We are.  Make your reservations TODAY and join CEC For Life in Washington for the March for Life 2013.  It's time to end the atrocity of abortion in our nation.  It's time to stand as one.  This present generation, and the generations to come, deserve no less.  
HOTEL SPACE IS LIMITED: Make your reservations NOW!

The January March for Life is not only the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, it also falls just days after the presidential inauguration.


Hotels are going to fill up quick this year!  CEC For Life was able to block out about 35 rooms with our regular hotel, the Holiday Inn Capitol, but you must make reservations by Friday, November 23, 2012. Holiday Inn will NOT guarantee rooms or rates beyond that date.  

Rooms with the CEC For Life block are $199/night for January 24th & 25th.  Reservations can be made online, or by phone (202.479.4000) -- be sure to indicate that you are with CEC For Life. 


Live on the West Coast?

Head to the 2013 Walk for Life West Coast, set to be held January 26, 2013 in San Francisco.


Speakers include: Lacey Buchanan, Elaine Riddick, Rev. Clenard Childress, and Kelly and Matthew Clinger.


For questions, contact Jessica Kessler at jessrkess@msn.com.

For the next three months, CEC For Life is operating on a day-by-day basis.  In fact, we already know by November 1st our budget will be depleted, but we are praying diligently for God to intervene.
In January, our finances get replenished with the gracious offerings of our churches.  Until then, we need some help!
Would you take the time to discern whether God would have you give to this life-affirming work?  It takes approximately $5,000 for CEC for Life to operate each month. Can you help us make it through December?
Every gift, no matter how big or small, allows us to stay in the fight one more day.  Please take the time to consider giving.  There is so much left to do in this battle, and we absolutely cannot make it without you!
