The Verdict from the
Canadian Parliamentary Vote!
As some of
you may know by now, the motion put forth by the Canadian
Government to re-open the marriage legislation was defeated by
175 over 123 on the afternoon of December 7th, 2006. This means

In spite of
what the media may be portraying, we all know that this
issue is not dead. It lives on in the hearts of
millions of Canadians and will inform how they vote in the next

leverage to push curriculum and media that overrides faith-based

in the offices of our government officials.
again, we thank you for your continued prayers as we fight these
battles, both here on the ground, and in the heavenlies!
