Dear Friend,

With the coming of spring, there’s a sense of anticipation for getting outdoors, being with friends, and resuming warm-weather activities. With mask mandates removed in more and more areas, people can show their smiles and more easily express themselves to others. Some are still fearful about health issues, but whatever the adversities we face, let’s be sure to heed Habakkuk 3:18, “Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.” As we have opportunity, let’s share the love of Christ “and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us” (Ephesians 5:2).

I’m overjoyed to be back in churches to give ministry updates and to have my wife, Carol, able to travel with me. What a blessing to see churches continuing the important work of sharing the gospel! If you’re interested in scheduling a meeting or have questions, please contact me at ealiff@vaib.org or 804-789-1278.

Virginia March for Life—April 27

One important way we can show our support for an issue is to be visible. The Virginia March for Life will be held on Wednesday, April 27, on the grounds of the Virginia State Capitol. You’re encouraged to come and join with others in support for the unborn. The rally will begin at 11:00 a.m. on the steps of the Capitol followed by the march at noon. Register here.
