CBR Appoints Joanna Keilson as Project Director for Carolinas

Welcome to CBR Joanna!

Welcome Joanna Keilson!

We are pleased to welcome Joanna Keilson of Cary, North Carolina to the CBR family.  Joanna is a graduate of UNC Greensboro, having earned her BS degree in Public Health Education.

Pro-life activism is in Joanna’s DNA.  Her mother helped start one of the first crisis pregnancy centers in Maryland.  While a student, Joanna led the campus arm of the Greensboro Pregnancy Care Center.

After graduation, she began to explore career options.  For years, she felt God tugging at her heart.  But the abortion thing?  Really?  She knew somebody should do something, but couldn’t it be somebody else?  Or maybe child sacrifice would just fix itself.  Yeah, right.

She was planning to go back to school and perhaps become a doctor, but then she met CBR at a national conference.  [Note: your checks to CBR make it possible for us to meet outstanding young people like Joanna and bring them into our movement.]

It was a real tug-of-war between CBR and med school, and the children won out!

Welcome aboard, Joanna!  We’re expecting great things from you!

If you’d like to share in this work, it’s quick, easy, and secure to support CBR online.  Whatever you can do will make a huge difference.   To support Joanna’s work, designate your gift for “Carolina Project Director (SE-JLK).”

We’re gonna need a lot more men (and women)

Congressman David Crockett and Lt. Col. William Travis

“We’re gonna need a lot more men.”

Did you see The Alamo (2004), starring Dennis Quaid and Billy Bob Thornton?  Check it out; it’s a great movie.  Thornton’s portrayal of US Congressman David Crockett is stellar.

When the Mexican army arrived on 23 February 1836, the Alamo defenders numbered only 150 men.  Crockett said to Lt. Col. William Travis, “We’re gonna need more men.”  Later, when he stood on the wall and saw that the army surrounding the Alamo was 1500 strong and growing, he revised his estimate, “We’re gonna need a lot more men.”

Pro-life students on campus are outnumbered and surrounded, just like the Texians at the Alamo.  Their enemies are principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness (Ephesians 6:12).  Opposing artillery are lies that Satan uses to destroy children, mothers, and families.  His foot-soldiers are key faculty members and administrators, who themselves have been deceived and victimized.

Armed with truth, pro-life students are fighting back, but they are gonna need a lot more men (and women).  We can’t just abandon them to fend for themselves.  That’s why I’m traveling all over the Southeast this summer, recruiting and hiring new staff.  Our team of project directors will reinforce, equip, train, and help pro-life students to expose the deeds of darkness (Ephesians 5:11) on campus, where it’s needed most.  Link to job announcement here.

That’s where you come in.  Please put me on the road, so I can recruit and train an army of reinforcements.  Unless I go out, we can’t find the reinforcements we need, and pro-life students will have to go it alone.  Please put me on the road with your special gift of $1,000, $500, or even $100.

If you will send me, I will go.  Please send me, because pro-life students are gonna need a lot more men.
