Merry Christmas from
"A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more." Matthew 2:18
This year's Christmas will be very different for many families who lost loved ones over the past year. As we pray for families in Connecticut, Nigeria, Pakistan, North Korea, and many other place where evil visited peaceful, innocent families, we should be mindful of the Christmas story in Matthew when King Herod sent his soldiers to kill all the male children under the age of two who might be a threat to his throne.
Despite a world filled with grief, those who know Jesus can offer the eternal peace that He offers to us. We should always be ready to share the reason for that peace with those who may not have an answer to the grief they are facing.
Please continue to join with us in praying for our Advocates around the world who take it upon themselves to fight for religious freedoms, for simple human rights, against corruption and abortion. Pray for Advocates who are imprisoned, or representing prisoners falsely accused of blasphemy, often at high cost.
And thanks to all of our friends who have provided over this past year. Your prayer support and financial support allowed us to prepare for 2013 with tremendous hope in how God will continue to use this relatively small ministry to continue to encourage and equip Christian lawyers and other advocates around the globe to better serve the Body of Christ.
Finally, if you have not yet made your final calculations for your year-end giving, we would greatly appreciate your prayerful consideration of supporting Advocates. We remain an ECFA Accredited ministry and maintain the highest standards of financial accountability.
Thank you so much for your continued prayers and financial support for the work of Advocates.
May the Lord bless you with His perfect . . .
Grace and peace,
President & CEO

to co-host joint conference in Hong Kong in April 2013
Please be sure to Save the Date for this joint conference, "Transforming the World Through Faith & Law," which will be held in Hong Kong in April 2013.
We are already working hard on details related to this conference and will provide more information on speakers, location, registration costs and attendance limitations as they become available. Because of the limited size of this conference, those interested in attending will need to contact their regional boards or the AI headquarters office.
AI is not a recipient of government funding and is solely dependent upon the financial contributions of those who believe in its mission, thereby enabling it to serve "clients" ranging from heads of state seeking to implement constitutional reforms to persecuted and imprisoned believers sentenced to death for their faith. We are most grateful and thank you for whatever financial support or voluntary service you can provide in support of AI's mission. Here's how you can help: (more)
