Mighty Joe Young!

He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. 'Is that not what it means to know Me?' declares the LORD.
Jeremiah 22:16

Sidewalk counselors: Paula, Joseph, Ursula, Marian, Patte
Prayer warrior: Kristy

My head is swimming with stories of our witnessing at the All Women's killing place today. I wish you could have seen and heard Paula's 9 year old son Joseph preaching his little heart out with the plastic megaphone. You really missed out. Oh, praise the Lord for the lips of babes! With tear filled eyes Joe pleaded with the mommies and daddies and accomplices who had come to subject more than 20 babies to human sacrifice.
Joseph preached from his heart saying:
"This is wrong. It is not right. It's the complete opposite of right. Don't do this!"
"The Bible says YOU SHALL NOT MURDER! This is murder iwth a different name. This is a human being"
"I assure you ... you won't feel good if you go through with this. You'll be swimming in the lake of misery for the rest of your life!"

We all stood in glorious wonder, thanking God for the way He was speaking through this precious child. We couldn't help but think of how very, very few adults were willing to even COME to the killing place to pray, let alone cry out to those who are perishing
with the tender earnest voice of a warrior of Christ like young Joe did.

Paula stood with us and watched her son preach. Then she turned to us and said: "My little boy ... he grew up today."

Each of us took turns preaching the gospel to the mothers and fathers who laughed and snacked and smoked outside the clinic while they waited for their names to be called so that they could carry their infants in to slaughter them alive.

Javier said that he was married and knew that it was murder to abort their first child,
but he and his wife "didn't want a baby right now".

Lila said: "I am NOT pregnant but if I was I wouldn't have a problem coming here to do this. A woman has a right over her own body." I asked Lila; "What about someone else's body? What about the body of a baby?" Lila smiled and said: "I wouldn't call it a baby. I'd call it removing a fetus." I asked her: "What do you think about God's command; You shall not murder'?"
She laughed and tossed her pretty hair and walked faster to her car.

Jason is a professing Christian and a member of New Destiny Church ( He had come to bring his friend's girlfriend to kill her baby. When I asked Jason what he thought of God's command You shall not murder, he squirmed. "Ah, I know it's not right. But there's not much I can do about it." I gave Jason a solemn charge: "As a professing Christian you are supposed to walk in truth. You are supposed to fear the Lord. You are supposed to honor His commandments. You are supposed to love your neighbor as yourself. You are not loving this baby, are you, Jason?" He looked at me with shame in his eyes and said; "Wow! You're right! I never thought of it that way." Jason said that he gets up and reads Daily Word every morning and reads the bible "about once a week" but by asking a few probing questions Jason admitted to having sex with the women he dates. I assured him that God said that no fornicator will inherit the kingdom of heaven. (1 Corinthians 6:9, Revelation 21:8) I asked Jason what Pastor Zack (New Destiny's pastor) says about fornication and the killing of children by abortion. Jason shook his head but didn't say a word. "He preaches against those things doesn't he? Pastor Zack says that the babies are precious little lambs." Jason nodded his head. I warned Jason that he needed to examine himself to see if he be in the faith. I asked him if he remembered what Jesus said about religious people like him who go to church but continue to live wicked lives. "Jesus called them hypocrites, didn't He? Jesus sent the ones who called Him Lord, Lord! away from Him, saying "Depart from Me! I never knew you. You are a worker of iniquity!" I said: "The men who are born-again have the power of an endless life living inside them, Jason. The power of holiness." I explained that he was lacking an essential element of genuine repentance, the forsaking of sin. Jason was convicted. He said: "Now I know why I came here, when I shouldn't have. I was supposed to hear what you had to say." I pressed our ministry packet into Jason's hands and he went inside to plead for the life of the helpless little child. It was too late. The abortionist was already dismembering that baby. I gave Jason a post-abortive and repentance tract for the mother and several gospel tracts for himself as well. I also gave him a copy of the CD teaching by Ray Comfort called True & False Conversion (

Jennifer had tagged along with her friend who had come to pay for the butcher to filet her son. She laughed at me as I introduced myself. As I offered her our ministry packet Jennifer tossed her head back and said: "You don't have to tell me anything. I go to the church next door. [Seventh Day Adventist] I know all about this place." When I asked Jennifer; "What do you think of God's commandment YOU SHALL NOT MURDER?" She replied: "What goes on in there is none of my business." I asked Jennifer: "Jesus tells us to love our neighbor. You can't love him if he is dead. Are you not your brother's keeper?" Jennifer left and came back with a bag of snacks for her murdering friend. When I approached her again Jennifer said; "F*#* you!" and gave me the finger.

When a man walked by on the sidewalk I introduced myself thinking he was with one of the aborting moms. He kept walking real fast so I had to work hard to keep up with him. When he began to pass the entrance to the killing place I realized that he hadn't come to kill a baby. When he said: "Tell them that they need Christ!" I said, "Why don't you tell them? Stop for a while and minister to the lost with us. These are your neighbors." place The religious man shook his head and said; "No" just like the story of the Good Samaritan.

Another man came by and thanked us for what we were doing. He left a $20 bill in our ministry box to help us reach those who are perishing.

What about you? Won't you join us next time at All Women's killing place?
We miss many women and men because there are not enough of us to personally engage
all of the dozens of moms who are murdering their young. Not to mention all of the abortion clinic workers.
Lord willing, we will be sharing the gospel with students at Seminole Community College in Sanford from noon to 3pm tomorrow (Thursday).
We plan to return to share the gospel of life and eternity at the killing place next Wednesday (and every Weds), January 10 from 2:30-4:30pm. We will also return to witness again at All Women's death mill Saturday, January 13 from 10am-noon.

I hope that you take the time to read the post-script at the bottom of this e mail. Now go out and make this a blessed New Year. Not just for you. Not just for your family. Not just for those you love. Let us make this a blessed New Year for all those souls who are heading for perdition. They are everywhere, including IN the church. And they need the real gospel.

Together for Life & Eternity,
Patte Smith & Friends

The scripture from Jeremiah at the top of this update was given to me by a brother. The little ones who are being led to slaughter are like orphans ... neediest of the needy ... And we are going to them. They are like the exposed infants, the newborns who were left outside to die in ancient Rome and is still practiced in some places around the world. (
Read also Ezekiel 16:1-58 to see how WE are like the exposed infants, upon whom God took pity and rescued.)We are not walking by. We are not sending them away.

I am sending these scriptures and lyrics out to you so that you can see that there IS a biblical mandate to good works, especially to the orphans. I hope that these words cause you to consider the lost who are dying and going to hell right outside your little church world.
I hope that Jesus moves inside of you in a mighty way and makes you men and women of courage and valor in the New Year.
Psalm 62:12: .. You, O Lord, are loving. Surely You will reward each person according to what he has done. Matthew 16:27: For the Son of Man is going to come in His Father's glory with His angels,
and then He will reward each person according to what he has done. Romans 2:6: God will give to each person according to what he has done. Revelation 22:12: "Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with Me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done." And the Keith Green song called: The Sheep and the Goats (

The Sheep And The Goats
by Keith Green

And when the Son Man comes, and all the Holy Angels with Him,
Then shall He sit on His Glorious throne,
And He will divide the nations before Him,
As a Shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
And He shall put the sheep on His right and the goats on His left,
And He shall say to the sheep; come ye, blessed of My Father,
inherit the Kingdom I have prepared for you from the foundation of the world,
For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink,
I was naked, and you clothed me,
I was a stranger, and you invited me in,
I was sick, and I was in prison, and you came to me.
Thank you! Enter into your rest.
And they shall answer Him, yes, they shall answer Him,
And they'll say, Lord, when?
When were you hungry Lord, and we gave you something to eat?
Lord, when were you thirsty? I can't remember. And we gave you drink?
Huh, when were you naked Lord, and we clothed you?
And Lord, when were you a stranger and we invited you in?
I mean, we invited lots of people in Lord. I could never forget that face.
And Lord, when were you sick and we visited you?
Or in prison, and we came to you? Lord, tell us?
In as much as you did it to the least of my brethren, you've done it unto Me.
Oh yes, as much as you've done it to the very least of My brethren,
you've done it, you've done it unto Me. Enter into your rest.
Then He shall turn to those on His left, the goats.
Depart from me, you cursed ones, into everlasting fire,
prepared for the devil and his angels.
For I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat,
I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink,
I was naked, out in the cold, in exposure, and you sent me away,
I was a stranger, and I knocked at your door,
But you didn't open, you told Me to go away,
I was sick, racked in pain upon my bed,
And I begged, and prayed, and pleaded that you'd come, but you didn't,
I was in prison, and I rotted there,
I'd prayed that you'd come.
I heard your programs on the radio, I read your magazines, but you never came.
Depart from Me!!!
Lord, there must be some mistake, when?
Lord, I mean, when were You hungry Lord and we didn't give You something to eat?
And Lord, when were You thirsty, and we didn't give You drink?
I mean, that's not fair, well, would you like something now?
Would one of the Angels like to go out and get the Lord a hamburger and a coke?
Oh, You're not hungry, yeah, I lost my appetite too.
Uh Lord uh, Lord, when were you naked,
I mean Lord, that's not fair either Lord,
We didn't know what size You wear.
Oh Lord, when were You a stranger Lord,
You weren't one of those creepy people who used to come to the door, were You?
Oh Lord, that wasn't our ministry Lord. We just didn't feel led, you know?
Lord, when were You sick? What did You have, anyway?
Well, at least it wasn't fatal; oh, it was?
I'm sorry Lord, I would have sent You a card.
Lord, just one last thing we want to know,
When were You in prison Lord? What were You in for anyway?
I had a friend in Leavenworth..
In as much as you've not done it unto the least of My brethren,
You've not done it unto Me.
In as much as you've not done it unto the least of My brethren,
You've not done it unto Me. Depart from Me.
And these shall go away into everlasting fire.
But the righteous into eternal life!
And My friends, the only difference between the sheep and the goats,
according to this scripture,
is what they did, and didn't do!!
