When Satan Attacks...Fight Back

This is a photo of me counseling an Hispanic man car-side on the sidewalks of the abortion center. We are pretty sure we convinced him that our resources and network of support would be enough to help him and his girlfriend choose life and bring their precious child into the world. That means four babies were saved as God used our presence on the sidewalks yesterday!

The woman beside me is one of our brand new Cities4Life counselors, Connie. She had been terribly afraid the day before her time on the sidewalks. She had terrifying nightmares of being attacked, and awoke filled with fear over the prospect of going to the sidewalks of the abortion center. She screamed while in the throes of her nightmare, and her husband woke her. Then they prayed.

Yesterday, on the sidewalk, she saw the Hispanic man drive in to the abortion center. His girlfriend who was at at work had sent him to get all the info and make an appointment to abort their child on her day off Thursday. Connie is fluent in Spanish and immediately spoke to him in his language. He drove out of the parking lot and stopped to speak with her. I hurried over, as we always support our new volunteers and (hopefully) guide them with our experience and training.

We both counseled him for a half an hour. While speaking with him, we arranged to have his girlfriend see her baby on the ultrasound of our partner ministry, HELP Crisis Pregnancy Center in Monroe. Usually we have an RV right there on the curb with a mobile ultrasound unit, but it is currently down and out with engine troubles. This appointment would be in place of an appointment to abort on her day off, praise God! We counseled him about how God would have him view this child in the womb, and by the end of our discussion, both of us felt confident this little baby had a fighting chance at life.

If Connie had given in to her fears, that man would very likely not have stopped his car, not have spoken with us, and not have understood how much hope and help was available. A little baby who now we are hopeful will live would likely have died at the hands of the abortionist.

NONE of us on the sidewalk speaking on behalf of the babies who cannot speak for themselves are Superman. All of us are simple Christians, who love God, and take seriously His admonition to "defend those who are being led to the slaughter." None of us are special. We are weak and flawed as all humans are. BUT we believe God when He tells us that His power is revealed when we are weak, and NOTHING is impossible with God.

Connie was joined by five other new volunteers, all of which held signs (which alone changed one couple's mind to abort), stopped cars, handed out literature, and sang like angels to bring God's glory to this wretched place. Praise God for their joyful obedience to God's call.

Praise God for Connie's submission to God's call and her courage in fighting the lie of Satan that mere humans cannot overcome the terror of evil. When God is for us, who can stand against us?

We need volunteers during the week, including teams that will minister to the women after abortions and give resources to those who change their minds in the early afternoon (when our morning teams have already left!) Please contact if you are available weekdays. God can use you to save lives, and we will train you.

Matthew 7:21

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
