Silver Ring Thing set for Nov. 5 Tickets on sale now!

Silver Ring Thing’s Explicit Truth Tour in Willard, OH Oct 11, 2017

Youth event set for UNO Nov. 5

The truth for a broken generation

Omaha, Neb. Oct. 16, 2017 – Nearly 300,000 underage girls are sold for sex in the U.S. every year. The Human Trafficking Initiative reported that in Nebraska, 900 individuals are purchased for sex every month, often multiple times. There is a dire need for help in this broken culture.
By the age of 14, 94 percent of children will have been exposed to pornography. Over half of America’s teenagers have engaged in sexual intercourse by the time they’re 18-years-old. One third of teens who get pregnant seek an abortion.
Silver Ring Thing event is an international youth ministry that defies today’s culture of the meet-up, hook-up, break-up mindset that contributes to brokenness—and they’re coming to Omaha.
Their live concert-style event will be held at the Scott Conference Center on

Sunday, Nov. 5 from 5:45 to 8 p.m.,

with Air Force Airman Jarell Roach opening the show with a comedy act.
Tickets are $6 online, or $5 for groups of 25 or more, and $8 at the door.
A parent’s session will begin at 6 p.m.
During this high-energy, action packed event, the SRT tour team—comprised of a dozen 20-something-year-olds—will share their stories of success, failure, forgiveness and hope using skits, humor, drama, commercial parodies and personal testimonies.
“Our culture is dealing with an epidemic of sexual brokenness,” said SRT President Jason Burtt. “Our children are victims of an ideology of misinformation and mistruth. It’s time to give real, honest answers to the questions being asked and challenge this generation to live with great dignity and worth.”

Ambulance responds to call at Planned Parenthood

NOTE: Nebraskans United for Life has confirmed that the ambulance left without transporting a patient. We do, however, remain prayerful for those connected with abortion. 

While praying outside Omaha’s Planned Parenthood, sidewalk counselors were caught by surprise when an ambulance pulled up to the abortion mill at 3105 N. 93rd St. on Monday, Oct. 2, 2017. One who prays regularly in the public space nearby said that while medical emergencies have happened during abortions at multiple places around the nation*, seeing an ambulance at Omaha’s PP was a rare occasion. Whether the person needing medical attention was an abortion patient, an abortion staff member or someone simply visiting the facility, we ask that you please pray for them all.

A City of Omaha first responder participates in the emergency call to the Omaha Planned Parenthood abortion mill on Monday, Oct. 1, 2017.

*The U.S. National Library of Medicine reported the following review concerning unsafe abortion:

  • About half of U.S. abortion procedures, 20 million, are unsafe.
  • Some 68,000 women die of unsafe abortion annually, making it one of the leading causes of maternal mortality (13%).
  • Of the women who survive unsafe abortion, 5 million will suffer long-term health complications. 

What they do not report is that abortion is “unsafe” for the human in the womb. 

In Omaha’s suburb of Bellevue, for instance, many women have suffered from “botched” abortions, during the procedure by abortionist Leroy Carhart. Until the end of 2016, Carhart operated a clinic in Maryland as well as the abortion mill in Bellevue. (See “Leroy Carhart botches third abortion of 2013.”)

Please, if you have not signed up to pray as part of the 40 Days for Life vigil that runs through Nov. 5, email 40DaysOmaha@gmail.com to sign up.

Not only do unborn children need your prayers for protection, women and those working in the industry need prayer as well. Let them know you care.

Governor thanks Life Chain participants by joining them in Omaha

Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts takes a stand with Nebraskans United for Life Executive Director Kristan Gray and over 1,000 others during the Life Chain event in Omaha on Oct. 1, 2017.

Nebraska is a pro-life state. That’s according to its governor, Pete Ricketts, who participated in the Life Chain event along Dodge Street in Omaha with about 1,000 other pro-lifers on Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017. The 30th annual event also transpired with thousands of others across America and Canada as a public stand to honor millions of humans who have died in the abortion holocaust, and to pray for those in surprise pregnancy situations.

“I want to thank everybody who’s out here on Life Chain Sunday to raise awareness about abortion and the evils of it, and to really pray for a change of heart in the people of our country to understand that abortion kills children,” Ricketts said. “We’re here to remind people that Nebraska is a pro-life state and we’ll continue to push pro-life legislation.”

In April, Ricketts legislatively approved a measure that will offer “Choose Life” license plates that will be available in January. Other pro-life laws in Nebraska include the following:

Other Nebraska pro-life laws can be found at nebraskalegislature.gov.

NOTE: The 40 Days for Life prayer vigil campaign will continue on sidewalks outside abortion centers through Nov. 5.
