Mike Huckabee

I attended a luncheon this week where I had the opportunity to meet Mike Huckabee. He is running for President of the United States of America. It won't be long where we, as a nation, will be electing our 44th President. I do NOT yet know who I will be voting for, but I want to encourage each of you to vote. The latest news on the polls are as follows, from an article I read this morning:

"DES MOINES, Iowa (Reuters) - Mike Huckabee has surged into a virtual tie with front-runner Rudy Giuliani in the national 2008 Republican presidential race two weeks before the first contest, according to a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday.
Huckabee, a former governor of Arkansas whose campaign has caught fire in recent weeks, wiped out an 18-point deficit in one month to pull within one point of Giuliani, 23 percent to 22 percent."

You may or may not know WHO you are going to vote for yet, so I suggest that you read up on the voting record of each person running for office. My words of wisdom are that I personally canNOT vote for any candidate who does not stand for the rights of an unborn child. I know there are MANY issues... but the litmus test for me is whether or not the person running for office believes in the sanctity of life. If they do NOT stand for the rights of an unborn child, the same as they stand for my rights... then they will NOT get my vote... PERIOD... The issue of life for the unborn is greater than any issue for me.

Make sure you find where each candidate stands BEFORE you support them...

In love,
Pastor Dudley

Dudley, I am forwarded some posts on your blog occasionally from Ron Tait at your church. My family and I are over at Calvary Bible Church in Burbank and also have a very strong stance on the sanctity of life. A friend of mine, Michael Spielman, who had been in pro-life work for the Center of Bioethical Reform (CBR) for about 6 years, about 3 years ago, went on his own to start his own non-profit organization and his own website: www.Abort73.com

Abort73.com is a site that is geared toward educating youth on the truth about abortion. For the past 3 years, he has been trying to send the word out and also get people to obviously consider prayerfully giving to his ministry. You may have heard of this ministry, or seen some apparel or a bumper sticker but I just wanted to bring it to your attention.

I am trying to do my job to get the word out about it get others at other churches to get the word out because I truly believe this is a worthy cause and one that brings God glory.

I look forward to hearing from you on this. You can email me at ianpaulmartin@gmail.com. May God bless you as you preach the Word with authority! Merry Christmas.

Our prayers need to be with Huckabee. What has happened in the past few weeks can be attributed to nothing more than the power of prayer. His rise in the polls has been awesome. We must keep prayerful for him. The next 4-8 years are a critical time in my children's lives.

We must also stand firm on our Governors school bill 777. If you stand and watch, it will pass. You must kill it with prayer and action.

Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!
