SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: The Vigil Doesn’t Stop.

40 Days for Life’s Spring 2014 Campaign ended this last Sunday. We had our rally to celebrate and commemorate LIFE and our results during that time. We had turnaways, three days the facility shut down unexpectedly, AND the facility manager QUIT. And while her departure is great news, she will be replaced.

Yes, the vigil for 40 Days if over but the job at hand is NOT over! Yesterday was one of the busiest days I’ve seen in a long time. The parking lot was overflowing. One of the worst things I see at the facilities is these guys dropping off women to abort while they sit in their cars chatting someone up on their cell phones laughing and smoking. Their baby is being murdered, torn from their mother’s body and they laugh.

I saw a man drop off a woman that left to pick up the money order for the abortion. He got out of the car, head down, wiping away tears. And even though this was hard to see, this man is still accountable for the death of this child because he did not stop it.

Precious few people will tell us if they decided to not abort. To that I have always said to look through spiritual eyes and let God have the results. If He wants us to know them, I assure you, He will. Remember, giving up is NOT an option.

However, now that 40 Days is over, it’s time to gear up for the summer, get the supplies needed and praying up.  Sidewalk counseling/prayer vigils are exhausting but exhilarating! Doing what God has called you to do is never without public disdain but it is a JOY, nevertheless.

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.” Matthew 13:44

As a prolifer, I’m all in. As a Christian, I’m all in. I bought the field and will cultivate it in the name of Jesus.

Don’t let the 40 Days Campaign be in vain, we need you on the sidewalk more than ever! It is proven that when more of us show up, abortion facilities close! They are a business FIRST, when the money slows, they close.

Team Spirit?

I WAS a die-hard University of Michigan fan…basketball, hockey, football. Not anymore after I learned what they do under the radar. But now I have to wonder if all universities and colleges are doing the same thing: SUPPORTING & PROVIDING ABORTION.

A lot of what you’ll hear about the abortion ties to major universities isn’t advertised. Regardless of how these universities and colleges feel about so-called ‘reproductive freedom’, you won’t see advertisements for donations to train abortionists or embryo mutilators.

For instance, embryonic stem cell research is lauded and applauded at the University of Michigan. Also, an abortion facility in Toledo has a transfer agreement with UofM which is being reviewed as I write this. Local prayer warriors reported this:

The local leaders were horrified by a taxpayer-funded celebration of abortion called “4,000 Years of Choice” – an exhibit that was hosted by the public university in Ann Arbor. I also learned that three doctors who are associated with the university perform abortions at the Planned Parenthood facility.

So, at the exalted UofM, they have doctors that are local abortionists, dissect embryos for ‘research’, offer their facility to an Ohio abortionist to keep them IN business, and allow a rabid feminazi to show off her so-called 4000 Years of Choice exhibit.

Donors to most universities give so that abortionists and sciences that support abortion can learn and earn. Another case in point is in New Mexico:

“UNM’s dirty little secret is their free standing abortion clinic in Albuquerque, the UNM Center for Reproductive Health. Abortions are performed up to 22 weeks gestation and research with regard to abortion, contraception and sterilization is conducted. For these reasons this “prestigious” institution falls short in its lifesaving efforts, because not all lives are being saved. In fact, 911 emergency records recently revealed that three women have been seriously injured as the result of abortion complications at the UNMCRH.” Read the rest here.

TO WIT: Medical Student for CHOICE. And in Michigan alone, there are four participating schools; click here to see all schools and this:  “MSFC’s Training to Competence program provides residents with financial and logistical support for receiving clinical abortion training outside of their program’s standard curriculum.”

Point made?

Then the moral of the story is this: When you support a university or college in any way [team shirts, game tickets, donations] you might be [most likely] supporting abortion. Do your due diligence, find out before you give.

The Enigma of Sidewalk Ministry

Today is March 16th, or 3:16 Day for those of us that have chosen Jesus as our Savior. We made a solemn CHOICE for Jesus Christ and His finished work that has set us free [Rom 8:2]. Evangelical Christians PRAY….so, where do you pray? Where do you minister?

I CHOOSE to  pray and minister on the sidewalk at abortion facilities. Noticeably and notably, the Church is absent. If there is an enigma of sidewalk ministry it’s because we make it one.

It really isn’t that hard. The Word of God says:

v2 Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; 
v3 meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, 
v4 that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
v5 Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. 
v6 Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one. [Col 4:2-6]

KEEPLIFELEGALBUT what this Scripture DID NOT say is that we only pray and walk in His Grace in church on Sundays. Maybe the enigma is that Christians have put Jesus back on the Cross rather than preach the Gospel to every creature: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” [Mark 16:15]

I have ‘preached’ to the choir about prayer and where it’s needed rather than wanted. The ‘church’ has sat quiet while 4000 unborn babies die EVERY DAY in the United States alone; over 150,000 worldwide.

Abortion is a sin problem. Jesus did not die for abortion, He died to save us from a fiery hell we deserved. This is exactly why I take ministry to the sidewalk, to honor my Risen Savior.  Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven” [Matthew 19:14]. Women in crisis get abortions. Women in crisis need JESUS.

Very recently, a BUSLOAD of people that live nearly 2 hours away came to pray on the sidewalk…and the hundreds of churches that surround the abortion facility seldom come, if at all.

PASTOR: Put your ministry where you mouth is! Do what He commanded you to DO rather than sit in your comfortable sanctuary. The sidewalk is a common, public place where everyone is welcome, much like church is supposed to be.

Everyone is welcome on the sidewalk: Evangelicals, Protestants, Catholics, Jews, everyone! This is not about ecumenicism, it is COOPERATION to share the sidewalk. Many people, some I know personally, will not stand shoulder to shoulder on the sidewalk and that’s too bad. We should never let personal agenda keep us from being a faithful witness on the sidewalk to save lives spiritually and literally.

Let 40 Days for Life ease you and your church into sidewalk ministry. From the 40 Days site:

“40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:

40 Days for Life“40 Days for Life takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion.”

 

During a 40 Days for Life campaign, you may come as an individual or with a church group to pray as you wish TO END ABORTION. We are all there for the same thing, to save our unborn from abortion death.

You may see KeepLifeLegal’s Statement of Faith here and Purpose & Vision here.

This is what you SHOULD NOT DO:

  • Yell at anyone; the pre-abortive, coercers, abortionists, passers-by, etc.
  • Persecute other faithful witnesses; This is a cooperation on the sidewalk
  • Be combative for any reason; if anyone is combative with each other on the sidewalk, it does not show our heart toward saving the unborn. It is confusing to the pre-abortive.

This is what you SHOULD DO: 

  • Purpose to be at the sidewalk as often as you can.
  • Be a prayerful faithful witness.
  • Did I say SHOW UP? We really want to see you there!

It has been proven that when people show up at abortion facilities, they CLOSE. These facilities can’t handle the constant prayerful vigil for LIFE. It proves what they do is wrong and needs to stop.

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: The TRUE Culture of Death

It is my intention and hope that I can bring light upon a subject seldom spoken of – the fact that abortion not only kills a child, but also creates a generational culture of death within families and communities at large.

Abortion has been a part of my life since my own mother forced me to abort my unborn child when I was a teenager. Through her own pain of being coerced to abort her own ‘wanted’ child two years prior, my pregnancy made her hate my own baby even more. My mother created a generational culture of death that continues to this day.

I am post abortive; I am also a sibling to an aborted child, a grandmother to an aborted child, an aunt to an aborted child AND a cousin to an aborted child….but this is not as unique as it should be. Recent statistics show that at least 1 in 4 women are post-abortive and half of those have had multiple abortions; and many of them are a sibling or grandparents to a child lost to abortion death; and even more so, knows a friend that has aborted. Then statistically, nearly everyone has been touched by abortion. EVERYONE.

Abortion has made a generational culture of death throughout 4 generations of my family and my story is not unique. I see this all the time at the abortion facility I pray at; generations will gather like murderous vultures to bring one woman to murder her unborn child. Abortion was never a woman’s choice…it’s her boyfriend’s choice, her mom’s choice, her grandmother’s choice, etc. Make no mistake; there is a generational culture of death because abortion is available.

If my mother heard the heartbeat or saw an ultrasound of her unborn grandchild she may have relented and allowed me to have my baby, breaking the generational curse of abortion in my family. Passing prolife laws saves lives and break the culture of death; teaching our families and friends about the culture of LIFE saves lives, serving on the sidewalk of abortion facilities saves lives…..if  churches would preach the culture of LIFE rather than hiding behind a pulpit that speaks a seeker message we could be in the fast track to finally abolish abortion.

“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9

Please come to the sidewalk, please talk to your family, and PLEASE talk to your Pastor – it could save LIVES and break the generational curse of death called abortion.

INTENTION: The Least You Can Do for the LEAST of These.

PRAYER. Prayer is an interesting thing; it’s free, it’s easy…it’s POWERFUL and we make more time NOT to pray rather than using this great discipline to move mountains:

v22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God
v23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 
v24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” [Mark 11:22-24]

When I go to  the sidewalk of abortion facilities, I go to PRAY. If I am asked or led to counsel, I will…but my intention is to pray and stand as a faithful witness. Christians with great intentions hardly ever come citing many things; not enough time, not ‘my’ ministry, etc. That, Mr. & Mrs. Christian, is an EXCUSE, not ‘intention’. 

Don’t be too discouraged…even Jesus had a time with His own disciples: 

v40 Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour?
v41 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” [Matthew 26:40-41]

ONE HOUR. That’s all Jesus asked of them but knew they could do much more. Why didn’t they? 

v19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”
v20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
v21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

Intention is what the Apostles had, but FAITH moves mountains and heals; lack of faith makes what was alive to be dead.  Some Christians believe that abortion will not be defeated so why bother praying? Even in these ‘last days’ we have given up…but let me assure you of this: We do not know this side of Heaven who we have effected by being faithful. Just seeing you on the sidewalk praying can change someone’s life!

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” [Heb 11:1]

How will they know there is a war if they don’t see the army? I would not ask anyone to do something I won’t. And being post-abortive I have the best excuse of all…but that’s not how God sees it. He takes our fears and turns them into ministry.  

ONE HOUR. I CHALLENGE YOU TO ONE HOUR OF PRAYER AT A LOCAL ABORTION FACILITY TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR UNBORN LIFE. THIS ONE SELFLESS ACT CAN CHANGE SOMEONE’S WORLD AND SAVE LIVES!

40 Days for LIFE – What’s YOUR Intention?

Today starts the 2014 Spring Campaign for 40 Days for Life. Awaken the conscience of YOUR community!

What’s YOUR intention? Are you post-abortive? Were you ever abortion-minded? Have you lost a sibling or family member to abortion? Then 40 Days for Life is for you! This is an opportune time to come and peacefully pray, grieve, and be a life-minded witness to abortion-minded women and men! 40 Days for Life vigils changes lives and save lives!

I don’t know how to do this! No problem, let the Word of God guide you to doing what we are called to do as Christians [Rom 12:9-16]:

v9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. 
v10 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;
v11 not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; v12 rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer;
v13 distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.
v14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 
v15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 
v16 Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: Prayer Changes Things.

We are called to do a very uncomfortable thing: witnessing on the sidewalk of abortion facilities. One of those is at a facility that Martin Haskell owns. Just today [January 21, 2014], late-term abortionist Martin Haskell was denied a license by the Ohio Department of Health to operate one of his abortion facilities, this one is in Sharonville, Ohio. He has two other facilities, one of them in the same sinking position.

Martin Haskell has patted himself on the back for pioneering the partial-birth abortion and gave Gosnell pointers in the ‘snipping’ procedure.

We pray. And pray. And pray more. Prayer changes things. Because of prayer, an abortion facility will close and save MANY lives. But this is only one facility, many more are still murdering our unborn with no apology, over 4000 lives lost every day.

Prayer is something that should never be taken for granted. We never know what God is doing or orchestrating to give us our heart’s desire. Ours is to see an end to abortion. God is certainly sovereign, but He is also providential. It is our own free will as humans that keeps us from doing His will. Abortion workers know that they are killing whether they are abortionists, receptionists, security guards or nurses; they choose not to do the will of God.

INTEGRITY. We serve God with integrity, not in spite of Him. God hates abortion and seeks our obedience and service. As a nation, we are disobedient to Him and His will by allowing this evil within our borders, our lives and our churches.

Abortion is a national and local tragedy. And it’s 100% preventable.

Go to your local facility’s sidewalk and pray. Sign up for a vigil at your local 40 Days for LIFE location. Get your church involved, and if they won’t find another church.

Prayer works – it shuts down abortion facilities.

National Sanctity of Human LIFE Day, 2014

PASTORS & FRIENDS: This Sunday, January 19th, is 2014’s National Sanctity of Human Life Day. Typically it is the 3rd Sunday of January, usually the Sunday before the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. President Ronald Reagan designated this day in remembrance and reflection of the sacred life of every person, born and unborn; the sanctity of LIFE:

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:27)

AND: “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.” (1Corinthians 3:16-17)

PASTORS, will you preach a message of Life to your church January 19th? My fear is that Pastors will shrug the responsibility of this day AGAIN because they simply will not preach against sexual sin and abortion. We are a woeful nation that will not stand up or in the gap of every unborn child doomed to legal execution.

DEAR FRIENDS, will you share this day with your friends and family? Do they know about this day set aside just for our unborn little ones and those that cannot speak for themselves?

OBSERVATION: ‘President’ Bill Clinton discontinued the practice or recognition of Sanctity of Human Life Day throughout his eight years in office, however Bush’s [H.W.] son and Clinton’s successor, George W. Bush, resumed the proclamation that Reagan started back in 1984.

This is what Roe v. Wade looks like, dead aborted babies in red tubs.2014 is the 41st anniversary of the signing of Roe; 41 years of legal execution of the unborn, 41 years of unnamed will-never-be-born children, 41 years of heart-broken post abortive women and men….AT LEAST 56+ MILLION DEAD.

Roe v. Wade was always intended for poor and minority women; not rape victims, incest victims, babies with disabilities or lofty college students. This was proven in the Roe ‘decision’ when the pregnant woman in question was pregnant from a string of bad life choices rather than a hard case’ [less than 1% of all abortions]. Thusly, women would rather kill their offspring than to be a LIFE GIVER to the life entrusted to her by God.

Attorney Thomas Dillon [VIDEO] said regarding Roe, “Once you allow the taking of innocent human life at the earliest stages of its development merely to suit someone’s convenience, how do you protect that human life at any other point? What about the child’s right?”

SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE? While watching an abortion-related program on PBS (and there are MANY), a woman said that she prayed and God gave her peace to get her abortion. Now, there are many things I do not know…but this one thing I do: GOD WILL NEVER TELL ANYONE TO GET AN ABORTION, EVER. Pregnancy is not the unborn child’s fault; why kill an unborn child for a poor decision?

SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE: Birth is NOT the beginning or origin of LIFE; it is simply the arrival. God is the originator of LIFE; He is the Creator. Every person, born and unborn, has a right to LIFE. Some children may not make it out of the womb, but I assure you that they are known by God BEFORE they were ever created in the womb (Jer 1:5).

HAPPY SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE DAY. If you are still unsure of the sanctity of human, unborn life, watch this video…it will chill you to the bone.

40 Days Fall 2012

40 Days for LIFE, Spring 2014

Are you post-abortive? Were you ever abortion-minded? Have you lost a sibling or family member to abortion? Then 40 Days for Life is for you! This is an opportune time to come and peacefully pray, grieve, and be a life-minded witness to abortion-minded women and men! 40 Days for Life vigils changes lives and save lives!

40 Days for Life is personal for everyone, even me: One of the reasons I am fervent and outloud about my prolife ministry is because of 40 Days for Life. As I went around the mountain for the umpteenth time, I found peace and forgiveness through Jesus Christ and 40 Days for Life. I knew God was calling me to prolife ministry and just like anyone that has not ventured to the unknown, I was petrified. But 40 Days made me aware, attentive, prepared for a way to witness all year, not just the 40 Days campaigns. The Spring 2014 Campaign is March 5 – April 13. Find your local vigil here.

40 Days Fall 2012

For those of you that have not prayed on the sidewalk at the abortion facility OR that has not come to terms with your abortion, this is a perfect time and place to do it. I know the sidewalk can be scary…the pre-abortive and their coercers can be combative, passers-by can be critical, the pro-choicers that show up to protest us are using intimidation to make us stop…BUT I promise you that your obedience to what God called you to do will minimize what persecutes us as faithful witnesses.

Our Prolife Year in Review, 2013

WOW! What a year it has been! Much has happened in the prolife movement in 2013 as well as this prolife ministry. We’ve seen division, communion, and revelation…but most of all we’ve seen lives saved and changed!

This year I had the distinct honor to be a part of what God has set aside for me as well as this ministry. I take what He has given me with precious humbleness of spirit and thankfulness. I cannot do this without Him. Period. I give God all the honor and praise.

I was able to travel a bit this year to see other prolife ministries and organizations fight this horrific child killing massacre called abortion. I so enjoyed seeing others come to sidewalks and abortion facilities to pray and counsel.

IF YOU DON’T SEE THE ARMY YOU’LL NEVER KNOW THERE IS A WAR. Get on the sidewalk, PRAY…but most of all SHOW UP. Abortion facilities close when good legislation is passed WITH outloud public awareness which affects the abortionists wallet. No money closes facilities.

OBSERVATION: While on a recent trip up north, I flipped through radio channels and came across a prolife program!! I listened intently and was thankful that someone has the fortitude to have such a program. Being an Evangelical Christian, I am disgusted by the Evangelical Church NOT participating or engineering their own prolife ministries and radio programs on Christian radio stations. This particular show I listened to was on EWTN. While I am thankful for such a program and their intent, I am quite dismayed by other ‘Christian’ prolife ministries that shamelessly slam Catholics but do nothing to promote such a program in their own ‘vernacular’ to their targeted audience. All that being said, there is never anything on any other Christian radio channels, ever. EVER.

I attended the NOLA Needs Peace Press Rally last May. It was held next to the site Planned Parenthood is to build their new 7000 sqft killing center. Great speakers like Mary Matilin and Abby Johnson spoke as well as other prolife organizers and clergy. Every news station came. New Orleans will be changed forever because of a handful of Progressive Democrat women in New Orleans City Council who determined that NOLA needs a Planned Parenthood REGIONAL abortion center. New Orleans needs PEACE, not more abortion! To the best of my knowledge, Louisiana has three abortion facilities and ironically Planned Parenthood is not one of them…but now they will be a major player that is trying to get the ‘mom & pop’ abortion facilities to close so they can capture the market. And also know that the ‘market’ includes Mississippi which GRATEFULLY has only one abortion facility located in Jackson – and that on is slated to close. What Planned Parenthood is doing in Louisiana is a sales move, not helping women in crisis. Women need to be counseled, not pointed to the killing facility to relieve their ‘problem’ with a life long permanent solution of child death.

But God is GOOD! The rally was not the only reason I was supposed to be in NOLA: One day back in the year 2005, I was forever changed by seeing an army of one, a lone man carrying a huge crucifix outside of an abortion facility in Baton Rouge. Because of this man, I have this ministry today. At the New Orleans Press Rally, I was finally able to meet this man and his wife for the very first time. I cannot tell you how blessed I was to be able to tell someone how their simple act of praying on a sidewalk changed my life forever. Richard, I cannot thank you enough!

Nearby in Baton Rouge I was wonderfully blessed to witness and counsel at their local abortion facility shoulder to shoulder with the man I met in New Orleans. The counselors there were wonderfully warm and loving, every one of them! They came from different backgrounds and each had different stories that brought them there. I am so excited to see 8 lives changed in the three days I was able to be there. I am planning another trip next year, hopefully two.

And then to the Lone Star State! In July we were able to go to Austin for the big prolife rally on the steps of the Texas Statehouse! INCREDIBLE to see a SEA of blue everywhere for LIFE! We met many people from other states that came on their own while the opposition was PAID to be there to try and secure legal baby killing throughout the entire pregnancy. We met Abby Johnson and Carol Everett as well as many life-minded state legislators. We were hosted by an incredible prolife family that loves above and beyond! God knows what  He’s doing….I love their family dynamic and I have purposed to do the same for my own home; God Bless you Sue! But BEST of all was going with great friends! Thanks Bobbi and Jeannette for what you do! WHEW…thank the Lord for the travel ninja.

And then there’s the sidewalk. In this year of 2013, I dedicated myself to the sidewalk besides speaking from time to time and running this ministry. God has directed me to go where no other prolifers wants to go. I played the ‘intent’ game too…but all I received for all of my hard work of avoiding the sidewalk was Godly chastisement. The sidewalk is an interesting thing; it’s peaceful and at the same time full of demonic forces trying to kill innocent flesh. I am blessed to witness with two of the best most faithful counselors in history but I wish I could say we enlisted more people. The sidewalk is a common place where we do the uncommon. It’s hard. But in a good way. AND WE LOVE IT. Viv and Holly..you guys bless me and this community. Thank you for your service!

40 Days for LIFE is one my ‘babies’. Our local group always includes KeepLifeLegal with their rallies and groups. I am blessed beyond measure by 40 Days! I’m impressed by their commitment and cooperation with all that want to join and pray PEACEFULLY. I encourage everyone that is scared of the sidewalk to come during a 40 Days campaign to be with others that come peacefully and prayerfully.

And then there’s the…opposition? Yes, there is division in the prolife movement and HOW SAD IS THAT besides embarrassing. I will never understand why other ‘ministries’ try to thin the herd by false doctrine AND intimidation. We need more in the army not less. But I see the prochoice side do this, too. They scream and intimidate women by means birthed by the Nazis. When a ‘movement’ or ‘ministry’ follows a man or woman rather than God, you have stepped out of the absolute will of God. PERIOD. To summarize, I see three camps in prolife ministry and I have the ability to see the differences and accept that I may not change what you believe. BUT I will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with each and every one of you on the sidewalk TO SAVE LIVES, not battle you.

But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 3:25

87 abortion facilities have CLOSED in 2013! Issue advocacy, prayer and diligence works. There are too many people trying to call the shots from the sidelines rather than getting in the game. Opinions are GREAT…but so are results. Thanks to Troy Newman, Bryan Kemper and Mark Crutcher; TRUE prolife heros in the trenches of a post abortive America.

WHAT’S UP FOR 2014 you’re asking? In my local community, we have a ‘right to life’ organization that does NOTHING. They turn their noses up and away from just about any prolife legislation because the statewide RTL says to. BUT NOT THIS MINISTRY!

We are going to be announcing SOON a new and improved Right to Life organization/ministry in this community that will be in the public eye, the public square and in the craw of those that oppose us. I am personally dedicated to bring real AWARENESS to the death camp called an abortion clinic in my community by way of open prayer vigils, issue advocacy, partnering with real prolife ministries and orgs, and sidewalk counseling when the facility is open, and not just on the warm sunny days. There are way too many fair-weather prolifers here that have great big opinions and never backs it up.

AND: PREDESTINATION MYTH BUSTED…you know who you are“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” 2Peter 3:9

My Bible is a book of LIFE, not choice. We preach Christ crucified, we preach LIFE. And above all, PRAY.

Let’s make 2014 a year that will astonish millions one day that finally ended abortion!

Happy New Year from KeepLifeLegal and may God richly Bless you!

Pray to END abortion.
