We adopted a street and pray that you will too.
When you show up at someone's house to pray for them it says "I care about you." (So in other words, if I didn't really care about you, I would have just stayed home.) It was God who sent me here to pray for you so I know it is important. - Frank G Simon

Gov. Bevin Invites Kentuckians to Play a Part in 'Reclaiming Our Communities'
Gov. Bevin met with more than 400 faith leaders and concerned citizens at Louisville's Western Middle School on Thursday June 1, 2017 to address the epidemic of violence gripping the heart of Kentucky's largest city.
He invited churches and other community groups to commit to "adopt" an inner-city neighborhood block to visit 2-3 times per week over the course of the next year-respectfully walking the perimeter in teams of 3-10 individuals to pray for and get to know local residents.
"I truly believe we're going to see a difference in this city," said Gov. Bevin. "I personally believe in the power of prayer. I've seen it evidenced in our community and across others."
"Don't lose sight of this: these are the sons and daughters of Louisville and Kentucky," he said. "We owe it to each other to have each other's back on this."

"Do we still need economic, political and law enforcement solutions? Of course we do," noted Gov. Bevin. "This will not take their place but we feel it will make a real difference."
For more information or to commit to "adopt" a block, please contact Adrienne Southworth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have started praying on our block and hope that you will start a prayer walk too.
Then email Adrienne Southworth at email@example.com and let her know what block you have chosen.
