Weekly Ministry Focus
Volume 1, Number 35 September 4, 2000
"Street preacher" repents at LifeHouse after bringing niece for abortion

Abortionist Kenneth Wright only committed abortions last Tuesday at the Family Planning Associates abortion chamber in Bakersfield. Here are a few selected reports from last week's ministry activities:

  • "Josette," 23, came to the abortion chamber on Tuesday morning to abort her two-month old unborn baby. Her aunt, "Leora," came with her. As they entered, Terri asked "would you like to see how they do an abortion?" Terri brought Josette and Leora to the LifeHouse and showed them the "Harder Truth" video.

    Afterwards, Leora was sobbing, grieving over the children she had aborted. "How can God ever forgive me?" she cried. But Josette responded with a sober commitment to keep her baby. Terri gave Leora post-abortion literature, along with a "baby angel" figurine which had been a centerpiece for the LifeSavers "What Was I Supposed to Be?" banquet. Terri also talked to Leora about the meaning of true repentance.

    Leora then explained that she is a street preacher, and she wants to tell everyone the truth about abortion; she went into the LifeHouse literature room, gathering up all of the different kinds of literature she could find, so that she could share them with the people she meets on the street. Terri gave Josette a "Hope for the Future" Bible and a baby gift.

  • "Minnie," 19, came to the LifeHouse with a friend on Monday for a pregnancy test. Minnie is single, and has attended a local Catholic church for several years. Her test was negative, so Terri talked and prayed with them about abstinence, encouraging them to save themselves for marriage.

  • On Tuesday, Terri talked to a young man who had a long pony tail and wore a "Black Sabbath" t-shirt. At first he ridiculed Terri, but after a few minutes he was cordial. He explained that he had brought his sister for an abortion. Although he once believed in God, he said that now he's not sure. Later, Chuck talked with him for quite a while and gave him literature. Several hours later, his sister came out from upstairs, without having her baby aborted. As she left, she held her stomach and said "thank God for choices!"

  • "Chloe," 23 called Tuesday afternoon, asking if she could come to the LifeHouse for a pregnancy test later. She requested a time when the LifeHouse would normally have been closed, but Terri encouraged her to come down anyway. At the LifeHouse, Terri showed her the "Harder Truth" video as she waited for the results of her test, while Tim watched her three-year-old daughter. However, Chloe apparently sat through the video without watching. It had been just seven months since she had aborted a baby. Terri gave her post abortion literature and information about the risks of abortion, along with a "Hope for the Future" Bible. Chloe said she believes in God, but doesn't go to church. She gave Terri a hug as she left, presumably still contemplating abortion. Terri offered her a baby gift, but she politely refused.

  • A young man (21) called from the outside phone at the LifeHouse on Wednesday; he told Terri "my girlfriend was raped and she's pregnant, and she doesn't want the baby." "He seemed genuinely upset, and he didn't want to have to be in this situation," Terri later explained. Terri asked if it was possible that he could be the father, and he replied "yes." Terri suggested that they could wait until after the baby is born, and then do a paternity test to find out whether or not the baby is his. "If the baby isn't yours, there's always adoption, and you could always give your baby to me," Terri said. He asked for Terri's name, and then thanked her for her help.


Scripture Focus Ecclesiastes 11:1-6

Cast your bread upon the waters,
   for after many days you will find it again.
Give portions to seven, yes to eight,
   for you do not know what disaster may come upon the land.

If clouds are full of water,
   they pour rain upon the earth.
Whether a tree falls to the south or to the north,
   in the place where it falls, there will it lie.
Whoever watches the wind will not plant;
   whoever looks at the clouds will not reap.

As you do not know the path of the wind,
   or how the body is formed in a mother's womb,
so you cannot understand the work of God,
   the Maker of all things.

Sow your seed in the morning,
   and at evening let not your hands be idle,
for you do not know which will succeed,
   whether this or that,
   or whether both will do equally well.

Meditate on this scripture today, and ask God to help you not to let your hands be idle, but to continue to sow good seed at all times.


Prayer Focus
  • Ask God to use every sidewalk counselor and every other volunteer to His glory today, and pray that God will give them strength to continue in the face of hostile opposition.

  • Pray that "Chloe" (see report above) will have a desire to keep her baby. Ask God to help her to see in the eyes of her little girl the joy that this new child can bring to her life. (And also pray for the other people mentioned in the ministry reports.)

  • Pray that pastors in our community will recognize their need to be a part of this ministry to the community and to their own members.

  • Pray that the money which is received by the abortionist and his staff today will not increase their wealth, but that God will operate against the finances of each person who seeks to benefit from the killing, so that they will be brought to repentance.


Researcher recommends anaesthetizing unborn children being aborted

A pro-abortion professor from Great Britain has advised that all unborn children aborted after the 17th week of pregnancy should be anaesthetized during the abortion. She will be chairing a conference on the issue in November.

John Smeaton, national director of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children in London, said that the professor's suggestions missed the point. Smeaton observed that the concern expressed by doctors and the public regarding fetal pain actually reflects "our sense of guilt at killing a fellow human being." SPUC also pointed out that the anatomical structures necessary for the appreciation of pain are present in the unborn child before 10 weeks' development.

Following this report, a Canadian professor who has spent more than 15 years studying the experience of pain in babies stated "my experience is they do experience pain. I say we should give the babies the benefit of the doubt."
