Volume 1, Number 40 October 9, 2000
Weekly Ministry Focus
Mothers become enraged when their young daughters choose life

Abortionist Kenneth Wright only committed abortions on Tuesday last week. The ministry day began at 6:30 am on Tuesday, as Terri (the leader of LSM's pregnancy evangelism team) walked around the abortion chamber and prayed that God would send 10,000 angels for every demon which was around the killing center. She also prayed that every person who came for an abortion would hear God's voice, and that Satan would be bound and gagged so that those who came for abortions could not go through with it without denying Christ. By about 9:30 am, nine women had come for abortion appointments; four of these women eventually repented. As the day drew to a close, at least eight babies who were scheduled to die had been saved. Here are a few selected reports from last week's ministry activities:

  • "Rebecca," 13, and her aunt were dropped off early Tuesday morning at the abortion chamber. Terri tried to talk to them, but they went inside. Terri called out to those inside the waiting room, saying "ladies, if you're here for an abortion, it's not too late to change your mind. We have help right across the street. God has a wonderful plan for you and it includes your baby. If you have this abortion, your arms will ache to hold the child you never got to see." Rebecca's aunt came out on the balcony and told Terri "you're scaring her." Terri replied, "she should be scared, considering what they will do to her and her baby!" At Terri's invitation, Rebecca's aunt came downstairs so that Terri could give her a teddy bear and a "Hope for the Future" Bible to bring back up to Rebecca. Then Terri continued calling up to the waiting room, describing the abortion procedure in graphic detail. Terri eventually had to go back to the LifeHouse to help a woman who needed a pregnancy test, but (unbeknownst to Terri) Rebecca had already changed her mind. About an hour later, Rebecca's mother returned to pick her up, swearing furiously at Terri.

  • When Terri had been calling out to Rebecca inside the waiting room, "Claudine," 16, came for an abortion with her mother. Terri offered them a Bible, but Claudine's mother said "I have a Bible," and proceeded upstairs. Claudine seemed hesitant, and Terri noticed her glance at the large picture of an aborted baby which was below the balcony, but she still went inside. So Terri intensified her efforts to call out to the women inside. After less than 10 minutes, they came out. Claudine was crying, while her mother heartlessly walked on ahead. Terri ran over to their car, and gave Claudine a "Hope for the Future" Bible, along with a baby gift and teddy bear. Terri said to her mother, "this is your grandchild"; but Claudine's mother snapped back "it's not my grandchild!" "But aren't you Claudine's mother?" Terri asked. "Yes, but she shouldn't have spread her legs," Claudine's mother countered. "That's true, but now there's an innocent baby involved," Terri said. Noticing an "I love Jesus" ornament on the car, Terri asked Claudine's mother if she was a Christian, and she replied "yes." "You're doing the right thing," Terri said, but Claudine's mother just glared straight ahead, as tears rolled down Claudine's cheeks. Claudine vowed to call Terri if she needs any help.

  • As Terri was dealing with Rebecca and Claudine (what a hectic--but fruitful--morning!), "Laurel" called LifeSavers on the phone, emotionally distraught. "I'm scheduled for an abortion at 9," she explained, "and I know I shouldn't do it, but I can't manage being a single parent of four children." Laurel said she is very active in the Charismatic church she attends, but she is going through a divorce because of her husband's adultery. He had just dropped off half of the money for the abortion and picked up the children, without showing any concern for Laurel's situation. Terri expressed sympathy to Laurel, saying "I could very well be in your shoes, but I would hope someone would try to stop me. God obviously wanted you to call me." Laurel agreed, remarking "just this week my Pastor was saying that it's only by God's grace that any of us are even born." Laurel said that when she called for her abortion appointment, she asked if any "protesters" would be outside, and she was told "yes, they know when our surgery days are." After about 20 minutes of talking, Laurel said she knew it would be hard, but she would keep the baby. "Thank you for your ministry. You really helped me, and I'm sure you've helped others too. I know that what you do is from the Lord."

  • At 6 am on Tuesday, Terri called 15-year old "Aurora's" house (see Weekly Ministry Focus #39), knowing that Aurora was scheduled for an abortion. Aurora's mom said that Aurora's appointment was set for 12:30. "So she's still going through with it?" Terri asked. "Yes," Aurora's mom answered. "If you really wanted her to keep the baby, you could stop her," Terri contended, "but you probably feel she had no business having another baby." Aurora's mom agreed. Terri asked if she could pray with her, and she said "yes." Terri prayed that God would give her a love for her grandchild, and give Aurora a love for her child. Later that afternoon, Aurora's mom called back, announcing "we're keeping the baby!" Amber and Terri are still helping them find a place to live.

  • On Tuesday afternoon, Terri took 15-year-old "Judith" (see Weekly Ministry Focus #38) to her doctor. Judith's cousin, "Emanuella," 18, came along. Emanuella was planning to abort her fourth child, but she happened to be visiting Judith when Terri called, so Terri offered to let her see the "Harder Truth" video, which shows what happens in an abortion. After Judith's visit to the doctor, Terri brought them to the LifeHouse to see the video. Afterwards, Emanuella happily announced "I'm keeping the baby."

Happy Birthday, Baby "Danielle"!

In the Spring of 1999, a pregnant teenager planned to abort "Danielle." As she sat in the abortion mill's waiting room, she heard someone outside proclaiming the truth about abortion. Going out onto the balcony, she saw a sign which displayed the "teardrop" baby (a six-week fetus), and decided she couldn't go through with it. She left, without telling anybody that she had changed her mind. This week, Danielle celebrates her first birthday!


Scripture Focus: Deuteronomy 11:22-25

If you carefully observe all these commands I am giving you to follow - to love the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways and to hold fast to him - then the Lord will drive out all these nations before you, and you will dispossess nations larger and stronger than you. Every place where you set your foot will be yours: Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the Euphrates River to the western sea. No man will be able to stand against you. The Lord your God, as he promised you, will put the terror and fear of you on the whole land, wherever you go.

As you meditate on this scripture, ask God to help us to walk in this promise, possessing more and more of the enemy's land with our feet.


Prayer Focus
  • Ask God to let His Spirit speak through you and through the LSM pregnancy evangelists today.

  • Pray for the mothers of "Rebecca" and "Claudine" (see reports above), asking God to help them open their hearts to love and protect their preborn grandchildren. (Also pray for the other people mentioned in the ministry reports.)

  • Pray for Chuck Thompson, atheist owner of the Stanley Security company which protects the abortion chamber. Ask God to bring him to the point of surrendering to Him.


LSM welcomes back Monica Savage

We are thrilled to announce that God has answered our prayers by allowing Monica Savage to return to the board of LifeSavers Ministries. Although she now lives in Santa Maria, she has decided to drive the four-hour round trip to Bakersfield to participate in the sidewalk ministry from time to time, resuming her former position as LSM Treasurer. With four young children, including one-month-old Francesca, Monica already has her hands full, but we appreciate her willingness to sacrifice for us and for the babies who are scheduled to die in Bakersfield. May God bless Monica and her family for her service, as He blesses us through her service.
