Holiness unto the Lord!
We again thank you who pray for us and our ministry. Trish and I are
doing well. All of the children are blessed and healthy.
We saw ten turn-aways from the Saginaw abortion mills and one save this
month. The Saginaw Township police didn't interfere with us outside of the
killing centers. Dozens of children were murdered here with nobody
interfering in the abortion mills to stop the slaughter. One couple came in
arguing with each other this morning. The woman wiped her tears and bolted
into the pit of murder. The man responded to my offer of help by swearing
and saying, "I hope they kill her too!"
Most of the over thirty child killing centers in Michigan have no
on-site pro-life witness. Please join us at the mills. Please join us in
asking the Lord of the harvest to call forth laborers into the harvest
On the National Day of Prayer I prayed and stood against the shedding
of innocent blood that stains our once Christian nation. A friend and I
spent the morning and early afternoon sidewalk counseling in front of the
downtown Detroit Planned Parenthood offices. P.P. has their offices in
Central United Methodist church. Child sacrifice is openly celebrated while
the glory of God has departed. Three police officers came when P.P. called
them but left without incident. Yes, a pro-life witness in front of P.P. in
a Methodist church building was a rare event. They closed down early and
people coming for appointments were puzzled at the closed place. We
witnessed to many people and distributed much literature. One woman was
given a ride home from P.P. in a March of Dimes van that had writings on it
celebrating healthy mothers and babies. What a bitter deception!
We leafleted Cass Tech High School later that afternoon and held up
pictures of aborted children when school let out. I was able to pray with
at least a dozen individuals and got into some meaningful discussions.
Straight Gate Church in Detroit was hosting a large meeting that
evening for the National Day of Prayer. A friend had contacted them,
encouraging them to pray against abortion and requesting permission to
distribute pro-life literature on the public sidewalk when it ended. They
declined. Two of us showed up with pro-life signs to pray and mourn by the
driveways. For all who came up to us to talk, we quietly invited them to
pray with us against abortion right then and there on the public sidewalk.
One man jumped at me and stole my sign. His friend said the thief was a
cop. Although I gave a description of the thief and his license plate
number to the police at the station, they have not been cooperative. Some
of the crowd entering the prayer meeting were pro-abortion and unthankful
for our exhortation. Yes folks, this is what it has come to. Please read
Isaiah chapter one. Tolerating the shedding of innocent blood is an
abomination to Jehovah! I heard that the National Day of Prayer meeting at
the capitol in Lansing tried to ignore the guy with the pro-life sign while
they had at least one politician speaker who advocates murder by abortion.
The Assemblies of God - Michigan District Council voted to approve my
resolution asking our national presbyters and their Doctrinal Purity
Committee to update and expand the A.G. national pro-life position paper.
All of my time spent researching and preparing was blessed. Now, quite a
bit more time and energy needs to go into this project. More materials need
to be ordered and distributed.
The rescued twins, Joshua and Caleb, are growing and doing well. We
saw them this morning and yesterday. Their mother is in another treatment
center. Please pray that she will wholeheartedly follow Jesus and turn her
back forever on worldliness.
One young man came to talk to us at the driveway of the Saginaw
abortion mills last week. He isn't obeying Christ, but he readily accepted
our offer to pray that his "girlfriend", Deetrice, would change her mind
while in the mill.
"Yeah, and she's got twins," he said.
"Just like little baby Joshua and baby Caleb," Eva piped up.
A highlight for the month of May was when V A Thampy came to visit us
from India. We hosted a home meeting on short notice and were greatly
blessed by this apostle. He oversees the many ministries of Christ for
India. 4,000 American children are murdered daily by surgical abortion.
About 40,000 people in India die daily and go to hell who have never even
heard the Gospel once. Many native evangelists and pastors are being
persecuted. Some have been martyred. We saw the pictures and heard the
stories. Please pray for India. Thampy told me to pray and then to
seriously consider bringing a team over to India for a short-term mission.
4,000 babies. 40,000 Indians. Every number is a face, a soul, a tragedy.
There is no hope without Jesus. With Jesus, the future is as bright
as the promises of God.
We are waving the Gospel banner while singing the praises of our God.
Thank you for your help.
We are striving to be faithful witnesses,
Cal, (Trish, Corrie, David, Jim, & Eva)
