We Were There!!!

Cities4Life kick-offThis is what we did this past Friday.

It was incredible!!

My daughter was the official photographer!!

We got there early. I helped with set up. There were so many there that wanted to help there was not that much to do. Aimee started taking pictures. While we were setting up the pastors were having a dinner in the next room. She got to take pictures of so many wonderful people! My favorite was Lisa Metzger!! She is awesome!! I have been reading her blog a 2nd Generation of Homeschooling   for a while and love it!! Finally got to meet her in person!! I just love all the work she does!! Tried to not be a total goof when I met her…well I tried!!

The event had speeches from Pastor Jack Hibbs, Pastor Dean from Grace Church, Ray Comfort, Rachele Flores, Elise Haro (amazing woman!!) and Dave Benham. It was really a call to action.

Here is one of the cute videos they played.

Just click the link below, its funny but makes a good point.

Who Will Answer the Call?

Kind of put everything into perspective.

They then asked everyone to meet the next day at a Planned Parenthood.

Here is what happened by 9:30 am the next day.

070 023 066 028 105 075 137 020 094 132 138 041 012Love to be able to say that I was there,

praying,

with all these wonderful people that want to help others realize that babies are such a blessing!!

It was a quiet event.

People on both sides of the street praying, singing and offering free assistance to any who would receive it.

There were those women who would not change their minds.

They chose to kill their little gifts from God that day.

One girl will haunt me forever.

She was brought in by her Dad.

When the murder had been completed the girl, not even in her own clothes, her lower half wrapped in a beach towel, she could  not even walk out by herself. She was staggering with help from one of the planned parenthood workers on one side and her father on the other side. She was not doing well. I have seen many girls leave there and this girl was the worst I have seen myself. Her father lifted her into the SUV they arrived in. She laid back in the seat… crying. One of the men from Cities4Life pleaded LOUDLY with the father “This is not normal sir!! Please take her to a real doctor immediately!! Sir, save your daughter!! This is not normal!! She is more than broken. Please sir! Let us call 911!! Please Sir!! Please!! Sir, this is NOT NORMAL!! Some thing is terribly wrong! Please take her to a hospital immediately! Sir Please!!” We are not allowed on the property. They were in the parking lot. All we could do was plead and pray. The father got into his SUV calmly and drove away at a safe pace. Friends tried to follow out asking if they could help her and to please go to the hospital. Called out as she left “We are here for you when you need us!”

We have no idea if he took her to the hospital.

We have no idea if she is okay…physically.

I felt so helpless.

All I could do was watch and pray.

I just wanted to comfort her.

Be there for her.

She was obviously so broken.

Jesus, You are the only one who can heal her now.

Girls like that one are the reason I go out to the sidewalk.

Girls like that are one of the reasons for Cities4Life.

This organization is there for conception, decision to adopt or parent, parenting skills, healing those who chose the abortion.

This is to real everyday.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.~ Matthew 18:6

And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.~ Mark 9:42

but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. ~ Matthew 18:6

I think the Lord has made it clear how he feels about people telling lies to others about a baby being a blob of flesh and that the murderous ripping of a small child to pieces is just a procedure.

On a Prayer Chain

I have been part of a prayer chain since Palm Sunday.

Everyday at 3:30 and 4:30 am, then again at 3:30 pm I am praying for friends who are visiting Russia and Germany right now.

Early, I know.

My husband gets up at that time, so since I get up with him it is not that big of a deal. I do know that the time difference means that they really need to be covered in prayer over there at that time too. The reason for the prayer chain is so special. My friends are on a missions trip. They are educating the youth in Russia and Germany about the tragedy of abortion.

Here is how they were asking for prayer…

“Please join us in prayer for an upcoming Russia & Germany missions trip that a team of us are going on. Please pray for the Spirit’s leading, unity of the team, hearts of the Russian kids that we will be with, their teachers, the translators, the Russian church that is planning everything and coordinating the camp, a Pro-Life conference that we will be having at the church in educating on fetal development, abortion procedures, abstinance, sexual integrity, post abortion & and sexual abuse healing, the church to receive God’s healing from abortion and sexual abuse/trauma, and for all the provisions needed for us to go and for the needs in Russia & Germany. If you would like to be on our prayer chain while we are gone, we would SOOOOOO appreciate it. We definitely need to be covered in prayer. The dates of the trip are March 23-April 16.”

Why is it so important that Russians learn about this?

Did you know that in Russia the average woman has 4 abortions in her lifetime?

It is thought of as a type of birth control.

This breaks my heart.

High abortion rates drive debate on contraceptive methods in Russia

I was shocked to read that there are 50 abortions for every 1,000 women of childbearing age in Russia.

In Germany the number is less then 10 per 1,000.

That is still 10 too many yet better than here in America where ours is 20 per 1,000.

There were about 65 kids at this camp they were running.

I have heard that they had divine conversations everyday with the kids!

It has been life changing for everyone.

So many kids hearing and seeing just how much God loves them!!

Here is what I was sent about how things have been going out there for them…

“We have seen the Lord change so many hearts. The first few days at camp the kids were shy and not really expressive. By the third day you could see walls coming down. They would share their stories with you and there was not a dry eye. By the last day at camp no one wanted to leave and there were so many tears….. They are very open. We get text messages, Facebook messages, & calls everyday from them wanting to come see the team and spend time together.”

Praise God!!

What an special event to be a part of.

So glad the Lord opened so many young hearts to the truth.

Now for many of them healing can begin.

It is such a blessing to see prayers being answered!

Isaiah 61:1-3 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.

If you feel you would like to pray for the missionaries too I know it would be so well received.

sidewalk ministry class

I am still debating putting up my post on the sidewalk ministry class I took on Saturday.

It effected me deeply.

I am still overwhelmed with emotion from the information that I re-learned and the information I knew but had hard evidence right there in front of me as to how incredibly evil the enemy is.

I believe that babies are a gift from God. All babies are a blessing

 

Psalm 127:3 ESV

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

Psalm 139:13-16 ESV 

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

John 16:21 ESV 

When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.

Matthew 18:10 ESV 

“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.

My heart breaks when I hear how many are taught from such a young age that this life is just a blob of flesh. So many believe that it is okay to destroy life as long as it interferes with their own… Oh there is so much I want to say…I am shaking with emotion…Maybe tomorrow will be a better day to post.

Ladies Tea

I am a total advocate for the unborn.

I am becoming stronger in my speaking out for them.

I know that recently my kids and I spoke with a family friend who had no knowledge of how bad birth control is, how bad planned parenthood is, the day after pill…and she is an extremely intelligent woman. Point being, she called her 18 year old daughter and started telling her all this information we gave her. It began discussions between the mother and her daughter, the mother and the boyfriend and I am sure between the daughter and her boyfriend. I am seeing that I can make a difference even though I really had not seen the results of my “lectures” to others on the choices that we make regarding premarital sex, pregnancy, abortion and adoption.

This made the Ladies Tea that I went to that much more wonderful.

I really could only afford to buy one ticket.

I took Aimee and Samantha with me to the Tea in November, but this time it was just me.

That was not a fun thought, going to a Tea alone.

It was for a good cause and I knew I would learn more valuable information so I went by myself.

Fun.

Then I found out my friend Bridget had done the same thing!

She could only afford one ticket as well and was going by herself.

We could go together!!

Whoo hoo!!

Not my best picture but it shows how nice it was there.

We learned so much that day.

It breaks my heart the number of pregnancies terminated in one year.

In Medi-cal records alone, in California 2007 there were over 200,000 abortions of innocent little babies.

That does not include those paid for cash or through private insurance.

Latest information shows,

A baby’s heart starts beating within the first 18 days of life.

This is when the mother is only four days late for her menstrual period.

The baby’s heart is pumping by day 21.

(check Cha-Cha for yourself)

A baby is not a blob as planned parenthood states.

Blobs don’t have heartbeats.

The sixth commandment is: Thou shall not commit murder.

If a woman has an abortion at 6 weeks is that not murder?

So much on my heart right now…

So much I have learned or was reminded of…

I am hurting for those who have been there…wanting to help others not feel the pain that comes with abortion.

For they are still mothers and fathers,

just parents of murdered babies.

Murdered by choice.
