Holiness unto the Lord!
Joshua and Caleb have been released from the hospital and are doing
well! Their miraculous escape from abortion and their survival in the
hospital after premature birth are cause for rejoicing. By court order, the
mother was supposed to go into a drug treatment center. The babies are now
with their aunt. Please pray.
The Saginaw killing centers are slaughtering children with vigor.
During March we saw eight turn-aways and two saves. Two weeks ago, all of
the workers and ten moms suddenly left before killing. The abortionist must
have called in and cancelled for the day. Only two of the moms received
literature as they drove away. Yesterday, I thought that one of the moms
who came to kill looked like one of the ones that had left two weeks
earlier. Some moms are crying when they arrive, more are crying when they
leave. Some of them claim to be Christians and have a "peace" about their
decision to murder. God can grant peace but so can the devil! God's peace
means comfort from Him while being at war with sin. The devil's peace means
false comfort from hell while still living in sin.
For years I have tried to get the Assemblies of God to update their
national pro-life position paper to include condemnation of chemical
abortion, abortifacient contraception, etc. In May I'll get my shot. My
resolution will be presented to our district council for consideration. If
approved, then the national executive presbyters must consider it. Four
other pastors have volunteered to help with the presentation and defense
while it is on the floor for discussion. Nobody there will be pro-abortion,
but I don't want this matter to die for lack of time, neutralizing
amendments, or hesitancy over lack of research. Thus, I'm researching. If
any of you have brochures from manufacturers of abortifacients, it would
help me tremendoulsly to have those ready. If my research is accurate and
thorough, if people's questions are answered (if I anticipate those
questions and answer them first), this might just work. If people sense
that I've done my homework, have a humble spirit, and am right; I hope for
God provided a video camera for us last month. These are wonderful
tools to have while on the streets. Often police will be inhibited from
lying and abusing sidewalk counselors if they are being recorded.
Thank you for praying for us. We are grateful.
