Connie Eller, head of Missouri Blacks for Life (www.missouriblacksforlife.org), tells of doing away with her first baby. Once done, her sense of loss was so impacting that she vowed never to do so again, thus in her second pregnancy allowing that child to live. During this time in her late teens, Connie heard the forgiving, loving message of Jesus, received Him into her life, and now to this very day rejoices in the forgiveness and inner peace that is hers. In this radio interview Connie reports of having just experienced her 17th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. with several hundred thousand on the 37th anniversary of the Row v. Wade Supreme Court decision. An additional highlight in 2010 was the reception for African-Americans supporting life hosted by Congressman Mike Pence of Indiana. For 14 of those Washington visits, Connie has been the coordinator of a fleet of busses that departed the steps of the St. Louis, MO Arch to Washington. The hundreds traveling from St. Louis would sleep on the several busses the first night, do many things the next day in D.C., and the second night sleep on the busses while returning. The atmosphere was usually festive! I did radio interviews with her by phone as she traveled. She now serves as a staff member of a loving, caring ministry, Our Lady’s Inn (www.ourladysinn.org), whose stated mission is to “…provide emergency shelter for homeless, pregnant women & and their precious children…” Connie Eller’s joy and enthusiasm are contagious!
