In last week’s email, I shared how much I learned at the training I received in Iowa for the Church Ambassador Network. The following week, I had the privilege of joining 36 other Family Policy Council Executive Directors in Washington D.C. Due to the Covid-19, it was our first national conference since 2019. I particularly enjoyed participating in a panel discussion that explored the differences in legislative strategies between red and blue states. Wednesday evening was a real highlight as we had dinner at the Capitol Hill Club where 20 Christian members of Congress individually addressed us asking us not to give up in our fight for life, religious freedom, and Biblical values. What I enjoyed most was the worship and fellowship with brothers and sisters who can truly relate to the challenges of leading a Family Policy Council.

I got home from D.C. 1:30 Saturday morning, caught a little sleep, and headed to Auburn for our first candidate training session. What a great encouragement to walk into East Auburn Baptist Church and see 17 citizens preparing for public service. I was very proud of Mike McClellan and our Legislative Committee for the great job they did organizing and executing this event. Please pray for the 20 citizens who signed up for this Saturday’s candidate training at Crosspoint Church in Bangor.
