Thank you for the numerous responses we received to today’s campaign appeal! Things are now looking much better and we are greatly relieved.

If donations keep coming in like this the goal will be reached, but we leave that entirely up to you.

Total received at the time of this writing is now $42,000. There is $83,000 to go. In addition to donations and if you are not able to donate, we also greatly appreciate prayers for the success of this campaign.

There is an unusual volume of weekend reading for you in today’s list of LSN stories. However, I think you will agree that most of the stories are incredibly important. There is a tidal wave of developments happening on the life and family issues.

Whenever there is such a volume, I find the best way to read our reports is to go to the bottom of the home page and click on VIEW ALL TODAY’S STORIES ON ONE PAGE.  When they come up, click on “Print All Articles”, preferably double-sided if your printer is capable of that. That way, you have a handy, hard copy full edition of today’s news that you can comfortably read at your leisure over a period of time. As well, you can then pass it on to other members of your family or to friends to read and become as well informed as you are on those issues.
