One Little Life
message of hope
The following testimony is an encouragement to let
all believers know that if you have faith and persevere and in true
Christian love, God can turn around what the devil meant for harm and
use it for good.
This is always the hardest time of year to be a lifesaver outside
this deathcamp. It was always so special to see pregnant women or be
pregnant at this time of year. But sadly, nowadays, children are
considered a curse rather than a blessing. Do you realize the first gift
that God gave the world was a baby? His name was Jesus. He was born in a
manger and died on a cross for our sins so that one day we may live with
Him in eternity.
to all who received Him, who believed in His name, He gave power to
become children of God.” John 1:12.
We met Kelly this past spring; her former boyfriend had requested
our assistance in saving his child’s life. It appeared to be a
hopeless situation as the overwhelmed mother was unmarried, had one
child already, an immature boyfriend, and was pregnant. She felt
abortion was her only option. But, we gave it our best shot. Desperate
measures were underway. We increased our prayer network and sent a care
package to her that contained a post-abortive tract from a young woman
who regretted her abortion, a little model of a 10 week old fully formed
baby, and a letter basically saying, “Please don’t do it, God loves
you and the baby.”
(actual letter and picture)
Please read through these materials. God loves you and your baby.
He wants the best for you, and that baby. You can’t get that baby
back, it will haunt you the rest of your life. That little innocent baby
girl or boy in your womb, is as precious as your little daughter. You
can’t get this baby back; many women regret their abortions. There are
many people who love you Kelly and want to help you.
We talked and pleaded with her. We placed several signs around
her small town that she would see praying that it would prick her
conscience, to let her baby live. The next day “special forces”
arrived moments before her scheduled abortion appointment at the
mill. We stood strategically outside this deathcamp. Again we softly
pleaded mercy for her innocent unborn baby, as she and an accomplice
crossed over enemy lines and were ushered into the abortion mill by
lurking staff. We didn’t give up as we know this is a spiritual
battle. Intervention team members joined us on the sidewalk as we prayed
for divine intervention. After a while, we realized our worst thoughts
may be happening behind those bloody cinder-block walls.
Several weeks later,
we saw her at the county fair and to our surprise, she was obviously
pregnant, Praise God! This past fall she contacted us, apologized for
her past behavior, and shared her story with us and took us up on our
offers of support and help. She was in much need of encouragement and we
found out the father of the baby is not fulfilling his role and
responsibility. There are always two sides to a story and a relationship
we found out. We purchased a crib, other supplies, and some gift cards
and Daniel and the children delivered everything in the nick of time to
a very teary eyed and grateful expectant mom.
This past week a beautiful baby girl was born, 6lbs. 4oz. She was
so happy and thankful. We praised God for this happy ending.
God has blessed our efforts with 2570 babies saved since January
2000. How many more little boys and girls scheduled to die could be
saved due to lifesavers caring enough to get a little uncomfortable and
putting their shoulder to the plow?
Pregnant, confused, desperate, and frightened sound familiar?
Over 2000 years ago a young girl named Mary found herself in the same
situation, different circumstances. Through the Lord she gave the world
its first gift: the baby Jesus. There are many more mothers out there.
We should be less worried about what people think about us and more
concerned about what God sees of us. Especially when abortionists are
considered heroes and the act of abortion is called a blessing. Women
need love, not abortion.
14:18-19 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before
long, the world will not see Me anymore, but you will see Me. Because I
live, you also will live.”
