small contingent of gentle Christian warriors brought the graphic truth
about abortion to the very gates of the “Promise Keepers Awakening”
this past Saturday, July 30, 2005. Please look at the brochure they
handed out and see if God would have you do something very similar when
Promise Keepers comes to your city. This is a powerful way to stir men's
hearts unto righteousness. Sure, the Promise Keepers Staff may give you
a hard time, but the men who attend will be very receptive to a message
from our Lord Jesus! -Flip

Unpredictable Adventure as God's mail is delivered to
by Angela Michael
is a man's issue
need to stand in the prophetic role to send a message to the community
against evil. Men need to tell other men it is wrong to impregnate these
women out of wedlock and it is wrong to bring women to the killing
center to terminate the lives of their children. Men must stand for
righteousness in their families, in their communities, and in their
nation. If they don't our children will pay the price. If the shepherds
will just call the men to the battle front and give them that vision,
men will do valiantly when they are engaged in war and lay their lives
down for others.
John 3:16 “…we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.”
The Lord's messengers came
out on the streets with us not only at the abortion mill in the morning,
where two babies' lives were saved, but also delivered God's mail to the
Promise Keepers today, "The Unpredictable Adventure,"
and it was, when God's mail was delivered to the approximately 11,000-15,000
in attendance. It was awesome!
We ran out of literature,
people were coming back asking for more. This year at the "Promise
Keepers' Awakening" PKs were more supportive of the signs.
They told us we needed more, and it's good, and that people need to see
the truth. A man from
said, "Only after I saw those signs did it change my view on
abortion. It's wrong!" We conducted ourselves as a loving,
informational, and encouraging presence. Only the PK management and
volunteers hated the truth. They wanted to put on a nice event.
We came to the Promise
Keepers and delivered the message from a woman's view, looking up to
these Godly men as leaders, encouraging them to bring their mountain top
experiences at this event out on these streets to help fight the battle
of abortion with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as the Lord has equipped
them to do. After all, it is a man's issue. Women were encouraging men
to be men and to address the fatherless in our nation. We thanked and
encouraged them for taking this step today.
It was well received by
many. We only carried three signs, two graphic and the babies' body
parts price list. A few of our men insisted on the signs being there. We
delegated them to boldly hold them and the women to hand out literature.
We cried out as mere women
fighting this battle, needing help and Godly men to lead us in fighting
this battle, and we thanked them for being at this event.
pastor coordinating the event
came over to Angela and made her an example by shouting to everyone, “This
is how you do it, this woman is here in love giving this message,” and
shook her hand PTL! One police sergeant wasn't as loving. He began
harassing us and even the four NOW gals. I went over to the gals. They
were afraid of the police officers so I told them to hold their ground,
that they had first amendment rights to be on that sidewalk too! They
thanked me and hugged me. It was wild! I asked them to join us in
prayer. They declined.
It's always an "Unpredictable
Adventure" when God's people show up for the battle and
deliver His mail.
The PK volunteers didn't
like the graphic truth of abortion so they tried, in vain, to block one
of our signs with their portly bodies, but we then lifted the truth and
raised the standard even higher. Clearly, the volunteers with their
vulgarities didn't want the PK men to see the truth. A PK volunteer
(with a bullhorn) walked up to the police and talked with them. Mia
overheard the volunteer say, “You know you have a gun with you
right? Is it loaded? You might have to shoot it.” The
volunteer then laughed.
One man was far more
concerned about his stomach than about the 25 little boys and girls that
were just slaughtered in
. He complained he just ate lunch.
We passed out flyers to the
You See Jesus Cry” explaining the
abortion holocaust that is happening everyday across the river in
Granite City, Illinois, and the body parts price list describing the
trafficking market of aborted fetal body parts. A lot of the PKs read
the information and some asked how they could help us. Some men broke
down and wept as they personally told their stories of being involved in
an abortion and how it haunted them. We listened and tried to comfort
A man stood in front of
Angie R. with overwhelming tears in his eyes. She knew abortion was part
of his past. The pain always looks the same--just different faces. He
said "Thank you for being here." We went
straight into a discussion of how his wife had three abortions and that
he had a lot of baggage from that but God shed His mercy on them and
allowed them to have another child. He knew God had blessed them, that
was why he was crying. We then talked about how 43% of
church goers sit in those pews with the guilty silence of abortion on
their hearts. The church needs to stand up to this silent killer.
One man yelled, “I
vote pro-life.” That's good, but “You've been
voting for 30 years and nothing has changed.” Babies are
still being murdered by abortion. Another man said, “ Didn't
they ban partial-birth abortions?” “No!” we replied. He
came over and spoke to us and was shocked to hear this truth.
A lot of the PKs talked
with us. “We didn't know” was the most repeated
phrase from them and we also told them to visit our website. One man
, a captain with an airlines, talked with Angela. They spoke with one
another for awhile and afterward this man prayed with Angela.
Overall, we sowed many
seeds among the Promise Keepers and spoke the truth to them in love.
1:27 "Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of
the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear
about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit,
contending as one man for the faith of the gospel."
Stand firm! and be
