Societal change comes one heart - one mind at a time via simple everyday conversations. That is why we must be equipped with a ready answer, spoken in love regarding the value of life and why it must be protected. MCRTL has some fantastic informational meetings planned to both inspire and equip us!
August 25 - Mix & Mingle with Lone Star College Pro-life Fellows - these young leaders receive scholarship money from MCRTL to work through the pro-life club on the LSC - Montgomery campus
Sept. 29 - George Pickering and George Pickering III, will speak on their harrowing experience regarding denial of care. Following a seizure, George III was quickly pronounced brain dead, the hospital moved to end care and also quickly began preparations for organ donation. George III had signed the organ donor card box on his driver’s license. George Sr. had to take the desperate step of using a gun to barricade his son's hospital room until he could prove George was not brain dead. Their story happened locally at Tomball Regional Hospital. View link here for more information. Denial of care is a growing threat that we each need to be informed of.
October 27 - Adrienne Walsh will speak on the growing ministry of Embrace Grace.
Embrace Grace, founded by Amy Ford, is a non-profit group that has a vision -"For every girl with an unplanned pregnancy to have a church to go to for spiritual, emotional, and physical support." Their mission (and now mine!) is - "To inspire and equip the church to love on single and pregnant girls." I believe Embrace Grace has found a way to do just that!
The monthly meetings are held at the Conroe Central Library at 104 I-45 North Conroe, TX 77301 from 7-8:30 pm. Please share the information about the meetings with your friends.
Flyers for the summer meetings are available below. Also Facebook Events are available to share.

We thank you for your partnership in letting folks know about these opportunities to become better informed messengers for life. Again, our society will change one conversation at a time. Let's all be part of those conversations!
The long worked for launch of the pro-life billboard will no longer take place today, July 4.
Tuesday, June 28, just a few minutes after sending the email announcing the launch time, MCRTL received an email stating "We regret to inform you that we will not [be] able to run the MCRTL billboard campaign."
Despite the fact that we had signed the contract, it had been accepted by both parties, the image had been approved and the launch date set; the billboard company decided to opt out at the last moment. This was within the contract stipulations but was quite a disappointment.
We were informed that the content was now deemed too controversial. Could this be further fallout from the June 27th decision by the Supreme Court justices not to side with Life?
Once again we are reminded that we need a fundamental change in our culture! We MUST speak to individual hearts and minds so that the value of respecting life is not even a question! We MUST create that joyous groundswell that says, “Every life is valuable and I will do my part to protect it.” The Right to Life is the first enumerated right in our first founding document - the Declaration of Independence. Our nation's core value should NOT be considered controversial.
The mandate to value and protect each life is a clear moral directive. The Right to Life is also our foundational civil right – upon which all the other rights are established.
The great civil rights song “We Shall Overcome” actually began as a spiritual. Today the song still maintains both moral and civic authority. So despite the great disappointments this week with the Supreme Court’s decision and now our personal setback with the pro-life billboard launch, I trust God that the words of that song are true, "We shall overcome someday. Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe."
We will press on.
We will find a new billboard location.
We will see our society return to one which values each precious life from conception until natural death.
