OSA/Jericho Mission Street Report
Saturday, December 27, 2003 and
Tuesday December 30, 2003.
This Saturday, eight of us came to stand for our Lord. Our group
consisted of Brookes, Bill, John, Mark, Donnie, his brother Casey
from Nebraska, Dan and myself.
The clinic escorts for once were on time: Diane and Joanne arrived
We began by earnestly seeking the Lord in prayer. As we prayed,
the concerns and cares that we had brought with us to the clinic
began to fall away, and our attention became focused on the task
that the Lord had set before us. You could feel the presence of
and His peace surrounded us. Our hearts began to break as we
interceded for the customers at the clinic that day. We prayed that
the love of Christ will shine through us, and God will anoint the
preaching and the words spoken here today. Then Dan prayed for
miracles and that is what the Lord gave us.
The very first car that
stopped and talked to the counselor was a woman named Olivia. She
listened and looked at the information, but pulled into the clinic
anyways. For some reason, God impressed Olivia on all of our
hearts, so we all began calling on God to rescue
Olivia. Donnie, Casey and Mark went to the back and called out to
her by name; they prayed and sang and preached.
A young lady exited the clinic and purposely walked up to the
counselor. She said her name was Carmen, and she had changed her
mind! We thrilled in that news, and I was able to talk to her for
ten minutes before her ride arrived. She isn't a Christian so I got
to share Jesus with her, and gave her my phone number and the
information she needed for aid. She left after giving me a big
While I was talking to Carmen, another couple left;
they pulled up to Dan and told him that they had changed their
minds. She was smiling and took the information and the phone
Donnie, Mark and Casey continued to intercede for Olivia. Just
then, the clinic door opened and out came
Olivia! She said she changed her mind. She was 18 weeks along, and
needed medicaid forms, so I took her to
the pregnancy help center to get her set up; she gave me a big hug
as she left the center. While I was gone, another couple left
choosing life, and two other couples just left without talking to
us at all. What a wonderful day! We rejoiced in the kindness and
mercy of the Lord! It is such a privilege to stand for Jesus at
For the day the totals were 4 saves, 2 turn-aways and 8 left to die.
We had no post-abortion outreach, because there was nobody to stay
with me. The only reason we even have this outreach is due to the
kindness of Karma Halbgewachs, who didn't want any women to leave
knowing that there is a God who loves her and a way back to Him.
Karma just had the baby (who by the way is
gorgeous, 8.5 pounds and his name is Isaiah James), and
is unable to be out right now. If you would be interested in this
part of the ministry, call Carole at
817-246-8137. We will be having a post-abortion training class in
mid-January, both for the outreach at the clinic and taking the
healing program into the jails. You do not need to have had an
abortion to do any of this. You just need to have compassion for
those who are lost, and believe that our God is big enough to
redeem any mess we can make.
Tuesday, December 30, 2003.
Brookes and I arrived for the before work outreach this
morning at 6:30. The place was packed! They had over thirty
appointments. They were parking across the street, at the motel, in
fire lanes.... We gave out lots
of information; one couple chose life, two others left.
It was the last day that the Westside will be performing late term
abortions (RoNeil hasn't upgraded to an ambulatory surgical center;
they will be referring all late terms to their West Loop Clinic in
Houston). The totals were one save, two turnaways, 27 left to die.
If you would be interested in coming out before work, call Dan at
817-246-8137 for the dates and times.
