Earlier this week I informed you of the passing away of a former Rock For Life staffer and great friend Kortney Blythe Gordon and her preborn child, Sophy. Thanks to everyone for your prayers, your words of support and encouragement and also your financial contributions. Her husband, Ben and their families are deeply moved by all of this. Students for Life announced that all of the funeral expenses have been paid for. Praise God!
Unfortunately we still need your prayers. Jon Scharfenberger, Students for Life’s Campus Support Coordinator and Pregnant on Campus Coordinator is in critical condition. Jon was in the passenger seat of the vehicle Kortney was driving. He has been showing some improvement recently but is still in bad shape. Please keep him, his recovery and his family in your prayers. Click here for the latest on his condition and check back there for updates.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jon while filming a promotion for the Pregnant on Campus initiative. Jon is a bright young man with a strong future in the pro-life movement. Let’s keep praying for a full recovery.
