A Message from Austin Ruse of C-FAM, the Pro-Life U.N. Watchdog

Pope John Paul II with Brendan
The letter below brought tears to my eyes. I know Brendan's grandparents well and often heard about Brendan, his suffering, and his incredible spiritual insights. I'm not surprised someone would call him in a time of crisis. I hope after reading the letter, you will help "Team Brendan" so that the crowd gathered at the finish line will hear Austin's powerful testimony about a little Down Syndrome boy who made a difference in so many lives!

Made One Phone Call…

Dear Friends,

On November 26th, 2008 Islamic terrorists set off a series of bombs in the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel in Mumbai, India. Hundreds of tourists and businessmen were trapped inside.

The terrorists stormed the beach outside the hotel and began an organized assault with machine guns. They intended on killing everyone inside.

An American businessman was among those trapped inside.

To save himself, he crawled into the air-conditioning duct in the ceiling of the hotel. He could hear explosions throughout the hotel, bombs and machine gunfire. He heard the screams of victims.

He lay still and prayed, and he made one phone call.

He called the father of a 9-year-old boy named Brendan Kelly who lived across the globe in Great Falls, Virginia.

The terrified man asked for 9-year-old Brendan’s prayers so that he would be delivered from almost certain horrifying death at the hands of fanatics.

Here’s the amazing thing.

Brendan Kelly was not only 9 years old, he had Down syndrome and --- even more than that --- suffered most of his life from leukemia. (Read more here....)
