RESCHEDULED FOR AUGUST 6, 2020 - SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS
Compassion continues to cover our clients, providing spiritual and emotional support, equipping and education, baby supplies, and more while doing all that we can to keep everyone sheltered in this storm of COVID-19. We're still connecting with ALL of our clients and volunteers and using some new methods and tools to do so. Our love and care continues and we know yours does, too. Yet, our Annual Banquet is our most mission-critical fundraiser. In fact, if it weren't for this pandemic, we would be putting the final touches on things right now so that it would be perfect for your arrival. Yes, April 2 was the original day for this great event. But your safety brought us to moving this event, even before our governor's executive orders, to May 14 in great hope that this virus would have come and gone. We continue to pray that it will be long gone by that May date! However, wisdom and the comfort of you, our valued partner in this lifesaving ministry, necessitates that we move Compassion's Annual Banquet yet again. We understand that while you still love and support our partnership that saves the lives of babies, equips parents, and blesses families, your focus is rightfully on your family and loved ones' health and safety. Our team shares your concern. So, we've moved our Annual Banquet to a time of year we've never considered in the past. We'll still have a GREAT testimony from a client. Our speaker, Nada Higuera, will still come from California to share how God has used her to battle for the lives of the unborn and their moms. We'll still be blessed to spend time with you, our dear friends, and welcome new friends. And we'll still have a great meal together as we listen for how the Lord would use each of us to bless the ministry at Compassion Pregnancy Center. But, we will not need to use the coat check room at The Mirage this year! Here's the new date to save in your calendar:
Evening of Thursday, August 6, 2020
Kindly hold the date and we'll gather together, sharing a wonderful evening. We'll be in touch multiple times before August and be in prayer for you all (Psalm 91 at 9:10 every day). Together, with the Lord at the lead, we'll flex with this change and continue to trust. Serving in Hope for Life Sue Nellis, Executive Director

Nada Higuera is a devoted Christian lawyer with Advocates for Faith & Freedom—a California-based non-profit law firm dedicated to protecting religious liberty.
She spearheaded the legal challenge against the Reproductive FACT Act, or AB-775 in California courts that would have effectively forced pregnancy resource centers statewide to advertise taxpayer-funded abortion and birth-control programs in their waiting rooms, signage and communications. Higuera took the case because it was, in her words, “blatantly unconstitutional.”
The issue would eventually wind up at our nation’s Supreme Court. Yet Higuera had a much deeper connection to the case she was arguing—one that had slammed into her as a teenager, but had since remained mostly out of sight and out of mind. But’s that’s not the end of the story. Join us to hear what only God could do in the law and in Nada’s life.
