“The Lord is risen indeed…” Luke 24:34 

Easter Sunday is the culmination of Holy Week.  We would do well to take time to reflect on who we are and where we stand in our faith.  Our patience and devotion has been challenged many times over the last few years, but also rewarded. Now would be a good time to look back on the path we have taken and gear up for the next steps, as people of faith and as Americans. 

Additionally, we must keep our state and our nation in our prayers. The foundations of our Judeo-Christian nation and culture are under constant attack.  A culture of death and darkness has replaced what was once a beacon of hope, and the sacred institution of marriage faces seemingly daily attacks on its only one true definition. 

I would like to wish all our supporters and friends a blessed Easter, and extend our heartfelt thanks for all that you have done for the cause these last few months. “Through His ministry and sacrifice, Jesus demonstrated God’s unconditional love for us,” said President George W. Bush at Easter a few years back. “He taught us the importance of helping others and loving our neighbors. His selfless devotion and mercy provide a remarkable example for all of us.”  And Pope John Paul II once said“do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.”

It is the love and hope of God in us that compels us to do the work that we do at IFI.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”
~1 Peter 1:3
