I am so thankful for all of you who have supported Family Protection Ministries over the last 35 years through your prayers and financial support. We have been so blessed to see God’s grace, provision, and strength as He has watched over us and our work preserving private homeschool freedoms in California. I know that God will continue to bless FPM’s work as we seek to serve Him and His people and that He will provide for FPM to accomplish all that He has for us to do.

-Nathan Pierce, Director
