2013 The Year of Public Awareness- ABQ Year In Review Top 5 Highlights
We have been so blessed and humbled to be a part of what God has accomplished in 2013. The citizens of ABQ have risen up in big ways and have brought so much awareness about late term abortions out into the open. This city is well on it’s way to seeing an end to all abortions as we move forward sounding the alarm. We appreciate everyone who has stood by us this last year, lifting us up and encouraging us to keep going.
A special thank you as well to those at Project Defending Life for continuing to be the most active and comprehensive pro-life ministry in the state and for inviting us to come work alongside them.

Back in May, Bud had the opportunity to speak at a National Day of Prayer event hosted here in Albuquerque, he encouraged local church leaders to become more active in our community as a voice for LIFE. In response to his talk, Bud met with local pastors about his vision for churches to become more active in our city. On September 30th, Project 52 was launched and we joined with local Pastors to host a press conference out at late-term abortion clinic Southwestern Women’s Options.
