Greetings dear friends. Happy New Year! We are off to the races both figuratively and literally speaking. As I’m composing this message, I’m headed for Miami for a gathering of members of the evangelical community.
Meanwhile, I’m praying for healing of the rift that is threatening to tear the people asunder.
Next, we will kick off the Martin Luther King Holiday in Atlanta. Then it's off to Washington D.C. for the March for Life week.
The year 2020 promises to be exciting, challenging, heated, and sensitive. Wow! What does this mean for the faithful? Will we sink or swim?
With Christmas 2019 now a blessed memory, please accept my fondest prayers and blessings as we enter this New Year, 2020. For those who follow our blogs and social media networks, please know how much we appreciate your prayers and your support for both Civil Rights for The Unborn and for Alveda King Ministries.
From our perspective, much has been accomplished for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in the first two decades of the 21st century. Now, we can expect to move up and ahead from here.
Towards the end of 2019, I called my immediate family and some of my extended family members over for dinner and fellowship. I told everyone that in 2020 I will be on steroids for what I believe with the Ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the sanctity of life at the top of the list.
During our conversation, they asked if I’ll be campaigning harder than ever for President Donald John Trump?
This is what I said: As a Christian evangelist I'll be promoting the gospel and love of Jesus Christ and the sanctity of human life; and I’ll be praying harder than ever for President Trump.
“Pray for kings and others in power, so we may live quiet and peaceful lives as we worship and honor God.” 1 Timothy 2:2
I went on to say that while I stopped endorsing political candidates in 2008, I still support and pray for political platforms that support the sanctity of life. I added that of course we know that President Trump supports life; he's perhaps America's strongest pro-life president ever.
How Can the Dream Survive? I became pro-life in 1983 when I became a born-again Christian. Since then, I have been proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ and also the sanctity of life as a creative Christian evangelist. Using the creative gifts and talents that God gave me, I founded King for America in the 1990s.
After the turn of the century, I joined Priests for Life as executive director of what is now Civil Rights for the Unborn. Today, as Alveda King Ministries, we manage programs and projects all over America and around the world. Our contributions include working within the film, music, literary, and media industries. We also mentor and sponsor organizations, groups, and individuals who need a hand up or a boost in establishing their dreams and goals.
Since the turn of the century, Alveda King Ministries has published numerous books, music projects, media messages and so much more; all for the purpose of advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the sanctity of Life. In the year 2019 alone, four new books and two new music projects were launched. We also jumpstarted a new pro-life genre.
Please stay tuned for 2020, as we pray together for a better America and a better world.
