Project Elijah - A Global Prayer Network
Coupled With Professional Engagement

Dear Friends,

One mantra that sums up Advocates' approach is that we work relationally, professionally and spiritually. This is especially true on religious freedom issues.

Dear Advocates’ Friend,

 

This is the first time that someone other than Sam Ericsson is making an Advocates’ appeal. As the chairman and vice chairman of Advocates’ Board we want to share an emergency need with you.

Dear Friends,

The dark clouds of war weigh heavy. We are deeply concerned about events as they move toward a possible war in the Middle East. Our colleagues in the region - as well as those within the greater 10/40 Window - often serve as advocates for many of the most vulnerable. Some fear the consequences that may flow once the shooting starts.

Dear Friends,

In 1991 there were only two countries - Canada and the U.S.A. - where Christian lawyers were organized to address religious freedom and related issues in the courts, the legislature and before government agencies. Today 70 nations have local or national groups of Christian lawyers and judges committed to "doing justice, loving kindness and walking humbly with your God." In most cases, Advocates International was the catalyst to get these groups organized.

Dear Friends,

Thankful! No other word better sums up our feelings at this time.

Thankful that plans to bring together lawyers, judges and national leaders on six continents this year were realized. At least 4,000 professionals from over 100 nations participated in conferences and seminars where Advocates' staff and Board members played a key role.

African Christian Lawyers - An Oasis of Hope
for a Continent in Transition

by Samuel E. Ericsson, President
Advocates International

 

At the African Christian Lawyers Network conference in August 2002, a South African lawyer, Teresa Conradie, told us that she awoke at 3:00am one morning several weeks before the event with an acrostic etched in her mind:

G-H-A-N-A = God Has A New Agenda

Dear Friends,

OUR 11TH ANNIVERSARY! It was June 1, 1991 when I left my ten-year tenure at Christian Legal Society to launch what has become Advocates International. At the time, I understood how Abraham must have felt when he "went out not knowing where he was going." (Hebrews 11:8). There was no plan, program or paycheck, but a growing passion to help the Church - as a lawyer - rebuild after the hellhole left by 70 years of communism. The idea of a global network of advocates reaching over 125 nations did not exist.
