It was an awesome day to serve the Lord as we drove
to the City of Slaughter and quickly set up our pregnancy outreach to
the abortion-minded women. The weather was sunny and unusually warm for
January. Judy and Stan soon joined us; Helen came later. As we set up,
women soon began arriving. I could only work with one arm, but my
comrades helped me. Throughout the afternoon, one abortion-bound woman, Kierstan,
parked her car, turned, and quickly walked up to us on the sidewalk.
Judy was fearful that she was going to attack us as we softly offered
her other options rather than abortion. She took Judy's hand and thanked
her for being here. We asked her if there was anything we could do to
save this baby and give her another way out of her situation. She
listened to all our resources and options and was touched. She would try
and go inside and talk her friend Stephanie out of the abortion. Kierstan
took our literature and walked inside the slaughterhouse.
Pro-life prayer warriors Helen and Chuck surprised
us with seamstress supplies in hand. Helen was measuring my maimed arm;
she was going to make me a warm boot to keep my arm warm during these
difficult winter months as we minister to the abortion-bound mothers and
save babies. We were so touched and grateful for these prayer warriors.
We hugged and thanked them for all their help and their love.
The Native American family of three we spoke to
earlier drove all the way from Kansas to kill their baby. A few minutes
later, they came back out…all four of them. Praise the Lord! They
saved their late-term baby and drove off the parking lot. Another couple
from Missouri that listened to our pleas of mercy came back out and
confirmed they were keeping their baby. They were not going through with
the abortion but accepted our literature and drove off the lot.
We didn't want to lose track of time as it's very
easy to when we're busy rescuing and saving babies, but we had a special
delivery to make of much needed baby supplies to a local couple and
their baby boy. I needed help in delivering. Judy and Stan volunteered
to go with me and do all the lifting of supplies. We drove through the
washboard streets of Granite City and found the house. After we rang the
bell, the couple came out holding their newborn, a precious little baby.
With some assistance I was able to hold this little one in my good arm.
It's such an incredible feeling to be able to save these little lives
and hold them in our arms. The couple was so grateful for the supplies,
and they thanked us.
As we turned to walk back to our car, the young
mother asked to privately speak with me. She asked if we could help her
with some personal supplies. I took the information and the needs and
shared with Judy as we walked to the car. This young mother needed a
pair of shoes. I looked down at her bare feet; I didn't even need to
ask. Judy, selfless Judy, ran to her car and reappeared with an almost
brand-new pair of high-quality athletic shoes and handed them to the
young mother who graciously accepted them and thanked us. We told her we
would have the rest of her needs by week’s end. As we got back in the
car, I thanked Stan and Judy for helping me and for their generous
spirits. These are the types of prayer warriors I want to surround
myself with. They would literally give you the shirt off their back and
not even think twice about it. Where there is a need God always answers.
Thank you Lord!
We got back to the slaughterhouse. Daniel,
Lewis, and Helen were still standing in the gap. Daniel announced
that there was another save as we were delivering the supplies. We bowed
our heads in prayer and thanked the Lord for all the babies saved this
day and all the hearts that were touched through our ministry and the
help of kindred spirits.
Thursday- CLOSED Snow
angels with Hannah and the kids. It was really our first snowfall of the
season and the kids were loving it. Hannah couldn't wait to get her
snowsuit and boots on and hop on a sled with her brothers and sisters
pulling her. I watched from my office window as I type but I couldn't
help to go out just in time to see our young daughter eating snow for
the first time “Look mommy, it tastes good, it's okay mommy, it
won’t hurt me” she said, as I grimaced at the site. One of
the bright spots of winter: hearing the children's laughter and watching
them play in the white stuff.
Friday- approx 16 killed IN,
MO, IL 1 save A dusting of snow from the previous
day covered the ground. It was very cold this day as part of our
ministry stood in the gap for the least of these, but the sun was out. J
For some of the abortion-bound women it was obvious they were advanced
in their pregnancies as they stood in line to sign the death warrants
out on their unborn babies. We tried to softly plead for their innocent
lives. One Illinois couple came back out indicating they had saved their
baby and pulled off the lot.
Saturday- approx 34 killed VA,
IN3, MO IL 1 save As we arrived this cold
morning only the employees were in the slaughterhouse. As soon as we
were set up, we noticed the screaming in the alley from the spiritual
Pharisees as abortion-bound mothers and their accomplices began arriving
and parking on the abortion mill lot. The anger and tone coming from
these Pharisees does nothing but make the mothers and the drivers more
determined to get inside and kill their babies. It's very hard on
Saturdays to save babies due to this debacle in the alley.
Very early prayer warriors Chuck and Helen arrived
with the much anticipated warm boot for my arm. We were so grateful and
could see the detail that this heavenly seamstress puts into her work.
We hugged both of them and thanked them as they went and joined the
rosary group this day. We sadly learned of the demise of one of our
veteran prayer warriors. His daughter who always accompanies him weekly
in his wheel-chair to pray for the unborn quietly shared, “He
died peacefully: he knew where he was going. He will do us more good
where he is now.” “ Precious in the sight of the Lord
is the death of His saints’ Psalms 116:15
We returned to the
friend sidewalk where we witnessed more mothers and the
accomplices standing in line to sign the death warrants out on their
unborn babies. It appears this slaughterhouse was making up for lost
revenue since they were shut down a lot over the holidays. Today the
death toll was in the 30’s unfortunately it's been a while since we've
seen these numbers. Serial killer, Yogendra Shah, arrived around 10 A.M.
to begin the butchering. We transported the promised additional supplies
to the Granite City mother we helped earlier this week into Stan's car.
He would deliver them as we promised on his way home. B-r-r! The sun was
shining but it was still bone chilling cold, really our first cold snap
this winter. After returning back home we received good news from a save
this past fall, Kelsey approximately 24 weeks when we met her outside
the slaughterhouse. She was there to kill her baby and we worked on her
for over three hours as she kept coming out taking smokes. She was
crying on her cell phone and yelling at someone on the phone and walking
back into the slaughterhouse that fateful afternoon. But we didn't give
up. Just as we were beginning to pack up our signs and materials for the
day the young girl stepped onto the parking lot of the abortion and Stan
called over to her and asked her if she'd like to see an ultrasound. She
looked up and asked him “Can you do that?” Stan
answered “No but she can” and pointed to Angela. Fast
forward. Kelsey came inside the ultrasound Van and her friend joined her
where we were able to quickly scanned through the tears and fears as she
had been told by the abortion mill staff according to their ultrasound
“your baby is all messed up” .. She was
told her baby had deformities and that the abortion mill could take care
of the problem. “Well let's see what God says about your baby”,
and there on the screen was an approximate 23-24 week perfectly
formed baby girl. 10 fingers and 10 toes we counted as she auditioned
for her precious life in our van that day. Her mother cried tears of joy
all the way back to Indiana with the reassurance that everything was
going to be okay. On the phone, Kelsey was informing us she was “due
any day and the baby is perfectly normal and healthy and by the way it's
a girl Miss Angela you were right. Johnny has a job now or
he would be on this phone thanking you again Angela for all your help
and for being there that day and saving his baby girl”, Kelsey
said. She promised to call when she goes to the hospital
and keep us informed of the debut of this little diva. Thank you
Lord, thank you that we get to hear and see the fruits of our labors!
