The Justice Wall has announced an exciting expansion project that we would like to share with you about and ask you to consider supporting in your year end giving.

The Justice Wall has been mobilizing hundreds of intercessors in prayer for the ending of abortion and human trafficking since 2007. We are grateful for this success but believe it is time to take the vision even further. To this end, the team is now working with a group of developers to automate the site so that instead of facilitating several hundred intercessors it can facilitate thousands, or more.

This is all so exciting because more prayer on these issues will mean more lives saved.

In order to do this upgrade the Justice Wall needs to raise $20,000 by the end of the year.

All gifts to this project are tax receiptable.

(Good report: The entire project costs $54,000 and $34,000 has already been provided for. The $20,000 is the remaining need.)
