Dear Friends and Gracious Listeners,
On our podcast, Nik and I (Matty) have dealt with the heinous evil of abortion numerous times. We’ve devoted so much time to this issue because we view it as a great matter of injustice. Abortion is murder, and this murder must end!
Personally, the Word of God has pressed this matter of injustice into my heart. By the conviction of the Holy Spirit, I felt as though I had to do more than just talking about the issue—I must act! After all, as we’ve talked about on the podcast before, as Christians, God commands us to:
“Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, ‘Behold, we did not know this,’ does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? (Proverbs 24:11-12a)
In God’s providence, He has provided me with the wonderful opportunity to expand my ministry in dealing with the injustice of abortion in our culture. I have officially joined a pro-life organization, here in Manitoba: the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (CCBR). Our goal is to end abortion in Canada.
CCBR is national, pro-life educational organization that has as its mission to make abortion unthinkable within our lifetime—to End the Killing. CCBR seeks to equip Canadians (and the world) with the knowledge of what abortion is and what it does to the life of the pre-born human being. CCBR is on the frontline of the culture wars. CCBR does God’s work by changing the hearts and minds of Canadians to see the dignity of the pre-born—by showing the visual truth of abortion—and engaging Canadians in compassionate, considerate and compelling conversations.
I have been hired by CCBR to be the Volunteer Coordinator for the Manitoba Initiative. As volunteer coordinator, I will be working to help coordinate these baby saving efforts in our local communities. I will be proactively engaging the culture on the issue of abortion, scheduling outreach, organizing volunteers for activism, and equipping them with the knowledge and skills they need to be effective pro-life advocates.
Proactively engaging the culture on the issue of abortion is hard but necessary work. We live in a nation that devalues life. We live in a society that considers itself morally superior and advanced, all while sacrificing 100,00+ children on the altar of convenience year-by-year. Canada is one of only three countries worldwide with no legal restrictions on abortion.
This grotesque human rights violation will continue unless the church of Jesus Christ acts. That’s why I need your help today! I know abortion is an issue close to the hearts and minds of many of you, yet you might not find yourself in a position to be on the front-lines fighting against this grievous sin day-by-day. However, by joining with me in my ministry, you too can help put an end to abortion in our nation.
Dear friends, the fact of the matter is this: there are many more people, with a lot more resources, working to keep abortion legal then there are people fighting to save the lives of the pre-born in Canada.
For this reason, I ask that you prayerfully consider partnering with me and supporting me in my ministry by donating to my position with CCBR today by clicking the drop-box and selecting Support Matthew Hallick. God Bless and thank you for your prayers and support!
Yours in Christ,
