Holiness unto the Lord!

Greetings from our warm house in cold Michigan. Our furnace was out for the past two days and nights. Out of the attic, out of the box, came the new kerosene heater. Thank God it worked. Corrie exclaimed that she felt like Laura from her Little House on the Prairie books when they ran out of coal and were cold.

Perhaps some of you remember from an update last fall about the mom who came out of the abortion mill and asked for a quick ride home before the man who had brought her stopped her. Her twins were born on Jan. 27th. Joshua weighed two pounds eight ounces and Caleb only one pound twelve ounces. Being premature and so small, they will be in the intensive care neo-natal unit at the hospital for a while yet. Children this premature need to sleep and grow to survive. Due to some challenges in the mother's life, she arranged with the hospital for Trish to daily visit the boys in her place. I stayed home and took care of her responsibilities while she would visit these precious little guys. It is now possible for the mother to visit them, so the hospital told Trish that she can only visit when accompanied by the mother. The babies need prayer to make it. Their mother needs prayer also. Joshua is still on I.V. tubes and experiences sharp pain whenever they poke and try to get the needle in one of his tiny veins.

A girl named Shahmell (spelling?) came out of a Saginaw abortion mill two weeks ago and said that she couldn't do it (kill her child). She requested prayer, which I gave. Please join us in continuing to pray for her. She hasn't kept in touch with us like she said she would.

The U.S. Marshals stormed and seized the Indianapolis Baptist Temple on Tuesday, Feb. 13. No, we weren't down there while it happened, but other friends of ours were. President Bush and Attorney General John Ashcroft could have stopped this act of tyranny with a word, but they supported it. For those of you who haven't heard of this one yet, the federal government ordered the IBT to become a corporation, become a tax collection business, and pay six million dollars in taxes that they didn't owe. We all spent the better part of six weeks down there since November, camping and worshipping in contempt of court. The Bay City Times interviewed us and did a fair article about us and IBT. The U.S. Marshals can add this to their ignoble history of the massacre at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, enforcing the Fugitive Slave Law, Ruby Ridge, and enabling infanticide by protecting abortion. Having such tyrants rule is one of the judgements of God. For more information, please click on In my biased opinion, the poem written by Mrs. Dixon on the day of the raid is one of the best Christian poems I have ever read.

I'm trying again this year through the Michigan District of the Assemblies of God to update and expand the national pro-life position paper of the Assemblies of God. Please pray. I've got some time now to research and write. This has been on my heart for years.

If the Lord allows us, we plan to go to Wichita with Operation Save America July 15-21. Can you please come?

The Associated Press ran a recent article about the "tragedy" that Saginaw was the northernmost city where Michigan women can murder their children by surgical abortion at a "clinic". True, we have seen people who drive from the western Upper Peninsula up to 500 miles to come and kill their children here. God is blessing prayer, sidewalk counseling, rescuing, and street preaching by winning souls to Christ, reducing abortions, and reducing the number of butcher shops. They are spending more and more on ads while killing less. We are called to be witnesses for Christ and the humanity of children, but if we allow the high places of child-sacrifice in our land, Isaiah chapter one says that even our sacrifices and prayer have become an abomination to God. Any woman or girl in Michigan can still murder her children before they are born for any or no reason. Yes, many of the women that we meet claim to be Christians as they walk into the death chambers to pay money for their children to die. There is a tremendous need for pulpits to thunder again.

The building housing both Saginaw abortuaries is still up for sale. Please pray that righteous investors would come forth.

Please pray for our family as we attempt to stand in the gaps where floods of judgment are soon to overcome this nation. Please contact us for times to come and minister with us at the death camps of Saginaw (those of you who are locals). Thank you for your support.

I am shouting GLORY all the way!

Cal (for Trish, Corrie, David, Jim, & Eva)
