Come Suffer With Me!

To My Dear Co-Laborers in Christ,
After a difficult morning at the clinic this week I found myself praising God that the Lord has strengthened me & you by His grace to endure hardship of laboring in battle for those who are perishing. When you fight for God, God will fight for you!

This week Scott & I listened to another great sermon by Pastor Dave Downs. In fact, we listened to it over & over again. It made me think of you. Pastor Dave is preaching through the book of Joshua & showing how God directed Joshua to fight the wicked kings, which are types of sin. Uprooting Root Sins is the title & it is a powerful message & so encouraging for us who are fighting the good fight as we battle for life & eternity & mortify the sin in our own hearts. Go to to listen to this great message.

Here are a few scriptures that keep coming to mind when I have a trying time of witnessing at the killing place & when I receive your updates describing the physical emotional & spiritual toll of reaching those who are perishing. When we suffer discomfort & encounter persecution & when we find the indwelling law of sin & death in our body pressure to draw back, we can look to the scriptures for courage to persevere:

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord or of me His prisoner,
but join with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God,
II Tim 1:8

Join me in suffering like a good soldier of the Messiah Jesus.
II Tim 2:3

This command I entrust to you, Timothy, my son, in accordance with the prophecies previously made concerning you,
that by them you fight the good fight,
I Tim 1:18

As our trials increase, we need to grow stronger in that which is good; our faith stronger, our resolution stronger, our love to God and Christ stronger. This is opposed to our being strong in our own strength. All Christians, but especially ministers, must be faithful to their Captain, and resolute in His cause. The great care of a Christian must be to please Christ. We are to strive to get the mastery of our lusts and corruptions, but we cannot expect the prize unless we observe the laws. We must take care that we do good in a right manner, that our good may not be spoken evil of. Some who are active, spend their zeal about outward forms and doubtful disputations. But those who strive lawfully shall be crowned at last. If we would partake the fruits, we must labour; if we would gain the prize, we must run the race. We must do the will of God, before we receive the promises, for which reason we have need of patience. Together with our prayers for others, that the Lord would give them understanding in all things, we must exhort and stir them up to consider what they hear or read.

~ Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on II Tim 2:1-7

Be encouraged, dear ones I am praying for you & with you. We KNOW that Jesus will give us complete confidence & peace in Him by His Holy Spirit. With Christ, we are never alone, but I am praying for more reliable workers to come alongside us to our committed companions.

Oh blessed be the Name of the most High God. He is our strong tower!

Together for Life & Eternity,


Those are best prepared for the life to come,
that sit most loose to this present life.
~ Matthew Henry

Baby at 20 weeks gestation

Orlando Women's Center abortion clinic
Wednesday, August 27, 2008
Late & early abortion day
Christian Missionaries present: Jackie, Keith, their son Parker, Dale, Patte, Ginner, Grant, Tyler

Patte reporting:
[Note: Names of mothers & their companions have been changed for confidentiality]

In preparation for ministering today I called the Orlando Women's Center to make an appointment. Here is a partial transcript of the conversation:

Question: "Can I have an appointment for an abortion at 22 weeks?"

Sonia: "For 22 weeks it is $2600. You will have to come at 9am on Wednesday & you need to plan to be here overnight because it is a vaginal delivery of a stillborn."

Question: "What do you mean? I have to deliver the baby just like regular birth?"

Sonia: "They can't go in & suck it out. You are five months pregnant."

Question: "But then the baby is going to come out alive!"

Sonia: "No it's not."

Question: "Why not?"

Sonia: "Because we do everything we can to try and keep that from happening"

Dear Friends,
We had a very powerful time of ministry this morning. At least one baby was saved from abortion. New people came today, including Jackie, who speaks Spanish!

*+* Daniela *+* The Lord really used Jackie to speak love & truth to a mother named Doris, who had brought her 16 year old daughter in to kill her baby at 18 weeks. Daniela had an ultrasound & had seen her baby with her own eyes. Doris seemed to believe that there was reason to be concerned regarding the infant's well-being. Daniela explained that her reason for being willing to labor-and-deliver her baby into the toilet of the abortuary was: "I am too young." Karl is the teenage father of the baby. He reluctantly accompanied Daniela & her mom to the abortion clinic. He didn't want her to kill the baby & had offered to marry Daniela. She is not interested in marrying him & said; "We are not even seeing each other right now." After Jackie spoke with Doris, Doris took Karl aside to speak privately with him. A few minutes later she came over to where we were speaking to Daniela & said: "We are not doing it." Since Doris was the one who was paying the $1800 for the abortion, this meant that the baby would be saved. Praise the Lord! I spoke very seriously to Daniela & Karl about the sin of fornication. I warned them that they were to turn from their sin to trust in Christ. We provided Daniela with a beautiful gift bag with a six month supply of pre-natal vitamins, a Gospel of John, repentance tract & a mother's devotional. We held hands & prayed together in a circle in front of the abortion mill. Please pray that we find a circle of friends for this family. Especially for Daniela. She does not appear to have any maternal feelings for her baby & it is obvious that she is in a rebellious stage of her life right now. Daniela lives with her mom in south Orlando off the 417 between Landstar Blvd & S.Orange Ave. Would you be willing to befriend Daniela? We would like to provide a godly mentor for Karl as well as a loving friend for Doris. We have the contact information. It is yours if you are willing to serve Jesus by loving these neighbors.

*+* Jack & Anna *+* This married couple are from Albania. They arrived with their three children. Jack & Anna had driven all the way from Jacksonville to kill their baby boy at 21 weeks gestation. Their obstetrician had informed them that their son had a heart defect & Down's Syndrome & had recommended that they seriously consider termination before he became any bigger & the abortion would be more complicated. Three specialists had corroborated the findings. Although the doctors explained that they would be able to do heart surgery when the infant was born, each of them said: "It's your decision but it would be easier to terminate." How tragic that men & women who are supposed to protect human life would be so determined to point parents in the direction of a abortionist. In fact, at least one of the doctors gave Jack & Anna the telephone number for Orlando Women's Center & recommended James Scott Pendergraft to kill their child. A simple google of Pendergraft would reveal that this is a man who is a convicted felon who had his medical license suspended for committing illegal abortions. ( Although Anna's doctors were not willing to murder her son themselves, they were more than willing to help her find people who would be happy to induce labor & kill the poor little boy for $2600. Although Jack & Anna said they were Catholic, they currently attend the Baptist church which is affiliated with the private Christian school their children attend. When I asked Anna if she believed in God she said: "Of course." I asked her if she believed that God had created her child. Anna said; "Yes." I told Anna that it was time for her to go beyond believing to obedience & trust. God had given her this precious boy & He was calling her to accept His gift & trust Him through her pregnancy. When I asked if they had spoken with a priest or the pastor, Jack said: "No, we don't want to involve anyone in this." He said that a Catholic friend of theirs had pleaded with them not to kill their child & had offered to raise the boy herself, but after she heard what the doctors said, she agreed that it might be best to kill him. I held the beautiful model of a baby at 20 weeks gestation for Anna to see. She had seen her dear baby boy on ultrasound too. I asked her; "If one of your children were diagnosed with a serious disease, would you kill him?" Anna responded immediately; "Oh, no! Don't even say a thing like that!" I appealed to Anna's conscience & spoke pointedly that God required her to turn from her evil plan to sin & trust in Him. I offered to find a loving circle of friends to support Anna through her pregnancy. I offered to let Jack speak with a friend & veteran pro-lifer in Jacksonville, but he refused. I told the parents all about Baby Rowan, who was 22 weeks gestation when he was delivered ALIVE into the toilet of the sister clinic to OWC, called EPOC. I showed Anna & Jack photographs of Rowan & gave them the handout so that they could read the transcript of the 911 call for themselves. Anna was very distressed at the thought of her son being born alive. I told Anna that the medication they give to induce labor does not harm the baby. Her baby could very well be delivered alive. Anna said: "The doctor said that he would be dead." I asked Anna; "Why would your baby be dead? Your son is alive now isn't he?" "Yes", she said. "I can feel him moving." How I wished I had an I-Phone so that I could show the couple the video of what happened to Baby Rowan: I told Anna & Jack that if they did not want to raise a child with special needs they could choose a loving adoptive couple for their son. Anna spoke up: "No. I would never give my child away." I reasoned with her; "Anna, you ARE giving your child away. You are allowing strangers to plunge him to his death in the toilet behind those doors." She cringed. "Don't say that. That is terrible." "Yes, Anna, it is terrible. Terrible, but true." AAnnwAnna said: "I will go inside and ask them if it is true. I will ask the doctor if my baby will be alive when he is born." I told Anna that there was no doctor inside the clinic. She seemed confused. Most of the late-term abortion process is facilitated by uncertified staff inside the clinic. "Do you really think that people who murder human beings for a living are going to have any problem lying to you about it?" She went inside. I was very glad when Dale came over & I introduced him to Jack & explained the situation with their baby boy. I told Dale that Anna & Jack said they were Catholics & that they went to a Baptist church. Dale opened up the Word of God & read from Philippians 4:6 & 7 "Never worry about anything. Instead, in every situation let your petitions be made known to God through prayers and requests, with thanksgiving.Then God's peace, which goes far beyond anything we can imagine, will guard your hearts and minds in union with the Messiah Jesus." Dale explained that the Lord can give us peace in the midst of the most difficult circumstances, but they have to trust Him. Then Dale read the Cure for Anxiety from Matthew Chapter 6:
The Cure for Anxiety

25 “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 “Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 “And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? 28 “And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 30 “But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! 31 “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32 “For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Although Jack gave me his telephone number, (& I gave my cell number to him) he & Anna still went inside the clinic. I saw Jack several more times throughout the morning. Each time I saw him I begged him to come away, to let us help him, to trust God & obey His commandment. I assured Jack that if Anna changed her mind she could go right to the emergency room where they would do their best to stop the labor. I urged him not to believe the lies that the clinic workers might tell him ... They often insist to the aborting moms that there is no turning back once they insert the Cytotec to induce labor. That is not true. It is not too late. Labor can often be stopped. I pleaded with Jack to have mercy on the son of his wife's womb. To fight like a warrior to protect his wife & son. I asked Jack if he had named his son. He said; "No. We didn't want to do that." I told him, "You must. He is your boy. He is made in the image & likeness of God. He has a soul. He is a person. Give your son a name. He deserves to have a name. He is not medical waste, he is a human being." I told Jack to call 911 immediately if his baby was born alive, because the clinic workers would lie & send him away so that his son would perish. Please pray that Anna & Jack's son was spared ... that his parents relented & allowed him to continue to live.

*+* Nan *+* The 36 year old mother of four was carrying her fifth child. Nan had come to murder her baby at 20 weeks gestation, saying; "I must do this. I cannot work while I am pregnant. It makes me feel sick." Nan does nails & the chemical smell made her feel ill by the end of her shift. Jackie & I assured Nan that we would help her. I suggested that she would be able to purchase a lot of food & pay rent with the $2400 she had brought to make her baby die. Nan's eyes filled with tears. "I have never done this before." Jackie & I gave Nan our promise that we would help her & if she needed to be given financial assistance through the rest of her pregnancy, we would ask God & His friends to help us to meet her needs. "We will visit you & your children. We will not allow you or your kids to go hungry. If your rent needs to be paid, we will, by the grace of God, pay your landlord if you are too sick to work." Both Jackie & I were suprised when Nan politely excused herself & went inside the killing place. We wrapped our arms around each other &holding back tears, we prayed for God to send her back out to us.

There were several women outside the clinic door filling out paperwork for their abortions. I called to them & offered to help them through their pregnancy. They laughed at us & continued chatting. Before I left I read the Deuteronomy 30:19 scripture that is the shaking of dust from our sandals. "I call heaven & earth to record this day against you, that I have sety before you life & death, belssing & cursing; therefore choose life that both you & your seed may live ... "

It was late & sweat was pouring down our faces & dripping lines down our backs. We all hugged goodbye & gave ourselves to Jesus Christ, to comfort & encourage us. It was tiring but fulfilling work for our Savior. He is worthy of all of labor. Although many infants were perishing behind the doors of the killing place we knew that our obedience to our Savior's great commission is success.

So many children are becoming victims of murder by their mothers. Just this afternoon it has been reported that Casey Anthony had the decomposing body of her poor little 3 year old daughter Caylee in the trunk of her car. ( Fox News reported that Alicia Banuelos delivered her baby then killed the precious newborn by leaving the child to die in a toilet. (,2933,411022,00.html) Oh the terrible lengths that mothers will go to slaughter their innocent children. The sin nature is set on fire by hell & the world & the Demoncratic party are in an unholy alliance against baby boys & girls through all nine months of pregnancy. Please pray that the church of Jesus Christ would rise up & defend these precious children with the gospel of life & eternity. Pray that the Holy Spirit would stir the idle Christians to repentance for their complacency. There are still days & killing times when there are no Christians willing to commit to witnessing at Orlando Women's Center. Won't you be the one to stand up & say to your Savior; "Here I am, send me!"?

Together for Life & Eternity,

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means.
-- I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty,
but leading or driving them out of it.
... I observed ... that the more public provisions were made for the poor,
the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer.
And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.
There is no country in the world where so many provisions are established for them ...
Under all these obligations, are our poor modest, humble, and thankful;
and do they use their best endeavours to maintain themselves, and lighten our shoulders of this burthen?
-- On the contrary, I affirm that there is no country in the world in which the poor are more idle, dissolute, drunken, and insolent.
... you took away from before their eyes the greatest of all inducements to industry, frugality, and sobriety,
by giving them a dependance on somewhat else ...
In short, you offered a premium for the encouragement of idleness,
and you should not now wonder that it has had its effect in the increase of poverty.

Missionaries: Paula, Dave, Gina, Francile, Larry & three of their children

Four Catholic prayer warriors present

Patte reporting:

Scott & I arrived early. Clinic worker Gladys pulled over to ask me a question: "Don't you ever get tired of coming here, Patte?" I answered her honestly. "Yes, I do." Gladys asked me why I keep doing it. With tears in my eyes I told her plainly: "I do this for Jesus Christ, Gladys. He was willing to die for me. I should be willing to live for Him."

A big truck with a disabled veteran license plate drove into the clinic. There was a giant decal of the American flag with an eagle flying across it attached to the entire back window of the truck. Dave introduced himself to the older man (a father) who had brought his precious daughter to have his grandchild destroyed. Dave challenged the veteran: "Sir, there was a time when you stood for integrity and for the protection of life. You tout the founding fathers vision for this country. Our Declaration of Independence declares: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.' Dave plead with the veteran & professed patriot to take his daughter by the hand & love her through her pregnancy, begging the question: "Please sir, teach your daughter courage & honor. Don't give way to cowardice & compromise your principles & attack the defenseless one inside her womb. Is this what you fought for? To take innocent life or to protect it?" Sadly, the man continued to smoke his cigarette & casually led his grandbaby straight into an ambush.

Dave showed this article from World Magazine to the many black moms & dads who arrived to commit the black on black crime of abortion at Orlando Women's Center this morning. Here is a quote:

If someone wiped out the entire African-American population in Oakland, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C., the number still wouldn't equal the number of black babies lost to abortion in one year: 683,294.

According to the Allan Guttmacher Institute, African-American women are nearly five times more likely than non-Hispanic white women to have an abortion. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost one in every two African-American pregnancies ends in abortion ... Black women account for 6 percent of the population, but 56 percent of abortions.

One aborting mom dismissed Paula's offer of help, insisting: "All sin is the same. Lying is a sin. Stealing is a sin. It's all the same in the eyes of God". Paula had merely introduced herself to this mother ... She hadn't even mentioned 'sin' yet! This tells us two things: 1) People are being taught that all sin is the same as another. Which is not biblical (See:

2) People already know that paying to have their baby pulled or delivered from their womb to kill the child is SIN. (As opposed to a 'choice' or 'decision' or even a 'mistake'.)

We know from scripture that everyone knows the difference between right & wrong. 'For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse ... ' Romans 1:20

For no man can plead that he has fulfilled all his obligations to God and to his neighbour; nor can any truly say that he has fully acted up to the light afforded him. The sinfulness of man is described as ungodliness against the laws of the first table, and unrighteousness against those of the second. The cause of that sinfulness is holding the truth in unrighteousness. All, more or less, do what they know to be wrong, and omit what they know to be right, so that the plea of ignorance cannot be allowed from any. Our Creator's invisible power and Godhead are so clearly shown in the works he has made, that even idolaters and wicked Gentiles are left without excuse.

~ Matthew Henry

[Note: Please listen to today's broadcast of Renewing Your Mind by RC Sproul. 08/25/2008 - Monday
"Exchanging the Truth for a Lie" Sproul teaches a powerful bible lesson through the early part of Romans.]

If an aborting mom believes that murdering her baby is no different or worse than taking a paper clip home from work without permission, she is comforted in her sin & sees the murder of her child as a small thing. Jesus, however, taught that sin is so grievous that it would be better for her to kill her sin so that sin does not kill her. "So if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life injured or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire.And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell fire." Matthew 18:8 & 9 This false teaching of 'all sin is the same to God' & an awful lack of biblical teaching regarding genuine repentance helps to explain why so many of the women & men who attend churches & who work at abortion clinics sense nothing amiss when their hands are covered with innocent blood of little babies.

Larry spoke with tender earnestness to the aborting women & men who stood in a very long line at the front door of the killing place: "In Ezekiel 18:4 God declares; 'Behold, all souls are Mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is Mine'. Your baby does not belong to you. Your baby belongs to God. You belong to God. Listen to the voice of the Lord when He commands 'You shall not murder'. Let us help you! Each of your children is precious & made in the image & likeness of God. You can choose a loving adoptive family for your baby."

Scott entreated those who were perishing. "We are here to help you to obey the Lord." Pointing to the Choice sign of a precious baby aborted at 10 weeks gestation (see Scott asked all the mommies & daddies waiting at the clinic door: "Is this right?" When a an aborting father said: "Hey, it's legal, man!" Scott responded; "Young man, it might be legal to kill your baby, but is it right? It was legal to buy & sell & even to breed blacks as slaves, but was it ever right? It was perfectly legal to murder Jews in Nazi, Germany, but did that make it right?" The crowd turned away Your conscience is given to you by God. Listen to the voice of truth: 'You shall not murder'. Speak to one of the ladies here. We are offering our support to you through this pregnancy. You can place your baby for adoption.'

A very pregnant woman pulled her car over & stood on the sidewalk with her hand raised in prayer. (You can see her in the photo attached in the blue dress.) Kathleen is due to have her baby on September 2nd. She explained to us that when she saw us ministering there she had to stop & stand with us. Kathleen told us her story. When she became pregnant her family (Catholic!) all pressured her to kill the child by abortion. She felt terribly alone & couldn't imagine raising her baby by herself. "If it wasn't for the support & help of the wonderful women at JMJ ( Center for Pregnancy ( my daughter would have been aborted." Kathleen took out many photos of her beautiful little girl, who is four years old now.

Dave & Paula both have I-Phones. They are able to stand beside an aborting mom or dad & share beautiful images of babies in the womb (Biology of Prenatal Development DVD as well as a powerful video of actual abortions (Choice Blues: ( With the I-Phone we can also bring an abortion-bound mom directly to profiles of adoptive parents like this one: In the past we always had to get our portable DVD player out of the car & sometimes it would run out of power in the middle of a mother watching it. These I-Phones are wonderful! We would very much love to equip all of our missionaries with this wonderful resource for ministry. It would give us so many valuable tools at the touch of the screen. Please, won't you consider blessing Sanctuary Ministries by donating tax-deductible funds to purchase I-Phones or perhaps you have an I-Phone that you would be willing to donate? Make out your check to 'Global Missions' & mail your tax deductible donation to: Global Missions, 600 South Orlando Ave, Suite 301, Maitland, Florida 32751.

Before we left to minister on Saturday morning Scott & I spent time in prayer & reading of the Word. As I read through the Gospel of John I pondered this incredible revelation:

In Him was LIFE; and the LIFE was the LIGHT of men.

John 1:4

Common grace tells us that it is wrong to murder an innocent person & that it is sin. The human conscience is informed by the moral Law of God, written on the hearts of aborting women by the finger of God Himself. This is called general revelation & natural law. Matthew Henry writes of our God-given understanding of what is right & what is wrong : 'The light of reason, as well as the life of sense, is derived from Him, and depends upon Him.'

We wish that all true believing pastors would begin to believe the Bible & preach the Law of God as if it has final authority. We honestly believe that far fewer women & men would be sexually immoral & murdering their children if the under-shepherds of Christ were more faithful in their call to preach the truth as it is in Jesus.

Please consider joining us as we desire to provide a biblical gospel witness on all six killing days. At this time we still do not have a committed weekly presence of Christians on Thursdays or Sundays. We also have a challenge in finding & keeping co-laborers on the other days. We do this for our dear Lord's sake & for love for our neighbor ...

For that is what the Lord ordered us to do: 'I have made you a light to the gentiles to be the means of salvation to the very ends of the earth.'"

Acts 14:36

Orlando Women's Center abortuary

8:30 -10:30am

Sidewalk Counselors: Dale & Mary Jo

Dale reporting:
Please pray for Demonte, a 27-year-old man who brought his girlfriend (and mother of his twins) to the mill yesterday to kill their third child -- but who came outside after hearing the Word (Revelation 20 on the Great White Throne Judgement and Revelation 14 on the smoke of the torment of the condemned ascending forever). I talked with Demonte for about a half hour, leading him through the law and the gospel and showing him the promises of God in Matthew 6 and Philippians 4 for those who repent and follow Christ. He abruptly turned and said, "I'll be back in a minute." When he did not return for nearly a half hour, I left (at 10:30am) However, late in the day, we learned that Demonte had not killed his child! He left a message at Pastor Dave's house asking for me and Mary Jo. (the number was on the back of the *True Repentance tract I gave him) Demonte explained that when he went back inside the clinic and spoke with his girlfriend, she explained she was killing the child for him -- and he didn't want her to do that. Demonte also explained that she said that she had become attached to the child, as she was nearly three months along. I spoke with Demonte late in the day and asked if we could meet again. He was noncommittal, but I have his number and he has mine.

The dozen or so couples who showed up were otherwise hostile. One older woman (a professing Christian who brought a teenage girl who was not her daughter) insisted: "I can kill my baby Friday and ask God to forgive me Saturday". She was presuming His forgiveness as if sinning more so that grace may abound. (SHE WOULD NOT STOP TALKING LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO READ HER HEBREWS 10:26.) Another -- a British woman (who claimed she was not there for an abortion, ) -- was the loudest of all, seeming to be a special envoy from Satan there to defend and comfort the murderers.

Please pray for Demonte, who's feeling overwhelmed at the responsibility of another child, as he's working two jobs and struggling to make ends meet.

Missionaries: Gina, Scott, Patte & Pat Mudge
Prayer Warriors present: four

Patte reporting:
The moment I introduced myself to Lina & gave her our ministy packet, she said: "I feel bad. I know this is wrong." We sat down together on the wall of the doctor's office next door to talk. Lina is 27 years old & 8 weeks pregnant. She is married & already has five born children, including twins. She had never killed a baby by abortion before. Lina's husband was deported to Jamaica two years ago. She is pregnant with another man's baby. Although Lina has no financial woes (she has an excellent income from a family business) she did not want the responsibility of having this baby. I suspected that she did not want her family to find out about her adulterous affair either. Lina's eyes filled with tears when I showed her what her baby looked like & explained how the infant's tiny heart had begun to beat at only 3 1/2 weeks gestation. Lina told me that there was a good chance that she was pregnant with twins. I pleaded with Lina to listen to the voice of her conscience, which tells her that it is wrong to shed the blood of her innocent children. I told Lina how she can choose a loving adoptive couple to be the forever family for her baby (or babies). Lina said: "No, I couldn't do that." I asked; "Are you telling me that you can slaughter your little child but you refuse to admit that you could take time to meet with perspective adoptive couples? It's not that you can't place your baby for adoption, Lina, it's that you won't." Lina's eyes showed that she was very aware, painfully aware, of the evil & selfishness of her sin. When I held up the photos of what would happen to her little one(s) during the abortion & explained the process of dismemberment to her, she put her fingers in her ears. Although she was polite & sat talking with me for almost 30 minutes, Lina refused to give up her plan to destroy her children. When Damien (her lover) arrived I took him aside. Damien identified himself as a lapsed Seventh Day Adventist. When I asked him if he loved Lina, Damien admitted: "I don't know her well enough or for long enough to know if I love her yet." The child (or children) Lina was carrying were Damien's first babies. I gave Damien my cell phone number & prayed that Lina would call me. She never did.

We met many more aborting mothers & fathers. Each of them heard the truth & were offered our help & were warned of the awful consequences of disobeying God's commandment: "But people who are cowardly, unfaithful, detestable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars will find themselves in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. This is the second death." Revelation 21:8

Sensual & sinful pleasures are muddy and poisoned waters; and the best earthly comforts are like the scanty supplies of a cistern;
when idolized, they become broken cisterns, and yield only vexation
... The agonies and terrors of the first death will lead to the far greater terrors and agonies of eternal death.

When a man's heart is fully set in him to do evil, and he is carried on in a wicked way, by the violence of his appetites and passions,
there is no making him fear the wrath of God, and the fatal consequences of sin.

"Don't leave until I release you."

Allura reporting:

Because of the storm I wanted to call OWC to make sure they were open before I arrived. It took 21 minutes of non-stop calling before I was able to get through…it made me sick to think about why the lines were busy…desperate mothers were wanting to make sure they could murder their infants. Since schools were closed my friend Michelle chose to spend her day off with Julia, Daniel (my son), and me at the abortion clinic! (Yay!) The only mom we got to talk to was Collette, who was 5 weeks pregnant. Tears filled her eyes as we talked, and I could tell her heart was still tender towards her baby, so we discussed different ways she can receive help and support. I went to my car and got the info on First Life Center for Pregnancy, while Julia talked to her…yes, JULIA TALKED!!! J She did a great job, too, telling her that this is a huge decision, and that this season, difficult though it is, will eventually pass and Collette will either look back on this time with regret or with gladness in her heart. After we’d talked for about 10 minutes, Collette assured us that she would keep her baby, so we gathered around and prayed for her and her unborn baby, and then she, Julia, and I exchanged contact info. Collette ran into the abortion clinic building (obstensibly to get her military id)…with a smile on her face, yelling, “Thank y’all so much!” We were laughing and rejoicing with her…and then she never came back out. Michelle, Daniel, and I stayed for another 30-45 minutes, til the abortionist came flying into the driveway in his expensive black car, purchased with the blood money of tiny pre-born human beings…like Collete’s baby. It’s always difficult when you think you’ve gotten through to one of these moms, and then they murder their baby anyway. I’ve tried calling the number she gave me several times…but had to leave a message. It may not even be her real number. May God have mercy on her soul.

Wednesday, August 20, 2008 (after Patte & Mary Jo had ministered)

I’d planned to meet Wanda (a mom whom we met at the clinic & who changed her mind after we left & called me at home!) after my doctor’s appointment this morning to buy shoes for her little boy and give her the school supplies and gas card I purchased with the money YOU gave!! Thank you so much! (And if you still want to contribute, that would be great!) However, b/c of the storm, we had to put off our meeting until Friday. But as I was driving home on Orange Ave, my car just automatically turned on Gore, then on Lucerne Terrace…just to pray as I drove past OWC…really! J But through the pouring rain I could see a group of pregnant women on the porch…with no one to begging them not to kill their babies. So I went out on the sidewalk, calling out for them to give their babies life. One woman kept laughing, so finally I said, “How can you laugh? Babies are being killed in there. What’s so funny?” She looked right at me and said, “You are”. In that moment, much to my dismay, I saw myself as she saw me: a 51 year old woman with frizzy hair, glasses, baseball cap, standing alone in the driving rain and wind, trying to hang on to a purple umbrella in one hand and soggy papers in the other, calling out to people who didn’t want to hear what I had to say…and I felt stupid…old, ugly, funny-looking and stupid. But in that moment, our awesome God reached down from His holy heaven, scooped me up in His strong, mighty arms, and said, “Don’t stop! You are My precious daughter, My beloved. I am using you, in all your weakness and inadequacy, to share My heart for these lost people and the babies they’re planning to murder. This is persecution for righteousness sake. Don’t leave until I release you.” And suddenly, I had strength to stay, to be a voice for the unborn, to warn the murdering moms and dads of the judgment to come if they don’t repent. I wasn’t alone; Jehovah Jireh was right there with me, my Provider, my Protector!!! And you know what? I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything this world has to offer! This is what we were made for, to obey our Creator!

I know this is long but I just have to share the sweet note from my dear friend, Patsy, in response to the comments I’d made in one of my updates. She wrote:

“…as I read (your e-mail), I got tears in my eyes and I realized a lie I've believed that others may not even know is in them.....that is that I wouldn't say the right things…so what good would I do there....then I read the sentence where you said .... “We tried to have him go inside to get his girlfriend & drive away” came to me....I could say that.... I don't have to understand in my mind all the details of abortion or think I have to be an intellectual person to explain exactly the medical stuff that happens or the process…but just be me and let God love them and plead with them....acting like Jesus...”

Who will come with me next week? J

7:55am - 9:25am
Late term & early abortions
Missionaries: Mary Jo & Patte
Prayer Warriors present: none

The wings of the ostrich wave proudly; But are they the pinions and plumage of love?
... She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not her's ...
Job 39:13,16

the daughter of my people is become cruel, like the ostriches in the wilderness.
Lamentations 4:3

It was a rainy, windy morning as I set up the posters & laid out the models of babies. The posters kept flying off my windows. When I leaned over to pick them up my ministry pocketbook (full of tracts) spilt out on the wet street & began to blow away. I tried not to be frustrated & sang a song to the Lord as I picked up the precious materials & asked Jesus to prepare my heart to show love & compassion to those who would be arriving to murder the little babies today.

Clinic worker Sonia arrived first at 8:05am. She has been delivering the babies inside the killing place for many years. According to a mother who had delivered her baby inside Orlando Women's Center at six months of pregnant, Sonia prays in Jesus' name. Yet Sonia is cruel & obscene. I will never forget the day we saw Sonia her take the body of an infant from a young father. He had brought the baby to the back door of the clinic in a plastic bag ( )

At 8:15 a mother brought her lovely young daughter in to kill. (Since the doors of the killing place do not open until 9am, we are able to speak with abortion-bound moms like this for 45 minutes. What a blessing!) The mother tried to dismiss me as I introduced myself to her & her daughter as they walked from the back parking lot to the front door to try & get in. I asked the daughter what was the biggest reason why she didn't want to raise her baby. I explained that the child she was carrying in her womb was not a mistake or an accident but a gift from God. Created in His image & likeness her little one was given to her by the Lord Himself. I addressed both of their consciences by using God's moral Law: "You shall not murder". The mother made their truck's alarm go off so that her daughter wouldn't hear me. They got back into their truck & turned on their CD player very loud. I was grateful to have the truth horn which helps amplify what I was saying to them as I spoke in a conversational tone of voice.

Car after car pulled into the parking lot & some of the abortion-bound moms parked on the street. Mary Jo & I tried to get a packet into everyone hand. When 23 year old Imara arrived with her 41 year old mother I assumed that Imara was the one who was pregnant. She smiled as she accepted the ministry packet from Mary Jo & I, but explained that she wasn't pregnant. It was her mother Angela! Angela spoke no English & neither Mary Jo nor I are fluent. I was able to say a few of the Spanish phrases that I have memorized, like "Your baby is a gift from God", "God says that abortion is a mortal sin", "This place is a place of death". Angela had a very serious look on her face & stood quietly, shaking her head as I spoke with her. Imara helped to translate my questions to her mother & was very helpful to tell her mom the things that I did not know how to say. As it turns out Angela is married & her husband (Imara's step-dad) wanted the baby & was opposed to Angela killing the child. However, Angela did not want to start over again raising a baby. Imara's brother is 19 years old. I explained all about open adoption & urged Angela to call A Chosen Child Adoption Agency immediately so that she could begin to look at profiles of couples on the adoption waiting list. I noticed that Imara wore a necklace of the Virgin Mary. When I asked if they were Catholic they indicated "Not really." I asked Imara what she thought of abortion & she said: "I don't think it's wrong." I tried to impress on Imara that it is what God says that really matters & He says "Shed not innocent blood." Since Angela's baby was 12 weeks gestation, I handed her a beautiful baby model of a child between 11-12 weeks. She held the baby in her hands & appeared to marvel at the intricacy of God's design. Angela tried to hand the baby back to me but I said, "No, that is yours. That is what your baby looks like." I showed them both photographs of babies who had been murdered by abortion. Angela seemed disturbed by the truth, but neither she nor her daughter exhibited any fear of the Lord. We offered to have Angela speak with Mary Jo's mom, Marian, by phone, because she speaks Spanish. She shoke her head "No" & Imara said that her mom didn't want to talk to Marian. I pointed to Gina's telephone number on the back of the brochure & urged her to call it.

Please pray for Angela ... Pray that she did not murder her baby. Pray that she will call Gina or the adoption agency.

We have a wonderful update from Pastor Felix & his wife Keri. They have been loving one of the moms we met at the clinic for many months now. Silvia is from Mexico but she is from a tribe of Indians there & speaks no English & is only now learning Spanish. Pastor Felix & the people in his church have been reaching out to Silvia & providing for her needs. In addition to helping Silvia by getting her much needed furniture & baby clothes (this is her first baby!) Pastor Felix has been meeting with Silvia & her fiance once a week to study the bible together. I just met with Keri & she said that last week there were EIGHT people at the bible study at Silvia & Jesus's apartment!!!! EIGHT! Isn't that great!?! These are all friends of the thankful couple. Felix has provided each of them with a bible. Please pray that God grants all of these curious, humble & friendly Mexicans repentance unto life & saving faith in Jesus Christ. At least one of the men cannot read. Keri said: "Almost everyone in our little church has been involved in the lives of Silvia & Jesus in one way or another. We have adopted this mother & we are all very blessed by this. Please send us any other women that you meet! Now that is the way we have always dreamed a church & it's pastor & people would be!

Together for Life & Eternity,
Patte & Scott Smith

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
Revelation 3:14

They may call their lukewarmness charity, meekness, moderation, and a largeness of soul; it is nauseous to Christ, and makes those so that allow themselves in it. They shall be rejected, and finally rejected; for far be it from the holy Jesus to return to that which has been thus rejected.
...We have one cause of this indifference and inconsistency in religion assigned, and that is self-conceitedness or self-delusion.

Late term & early baby killings


Sidewalk missionaries: Allura, Francile, Patte, Mary Jo, Amy

Prayer Warriors present: None

Many, many people came to have their babies murdered today. For insight into the late term abortions that are happening today go to a video of the true story of Baby Rowan's murder: (OWC is owned & operated by the same abortionist as EPOC & the same labor-and-delivery abortion is committed there. For information on the upcoming film about the murder of Baby Rowan go to:

The first couple I spoke with said that they were having their little boy killed because he has Down's Syndrome. To clarify I asked Marie & Ron, "So you don't want to raise a child who has some level of mental retardation?" Both Ron & Marie nodded & said: "That's right." I explained that there are very special parents who are willing to adopt their son & raise him as their very own. Ron began to shout: "We are NOT going to do that! Now, get away from us - this is hard enough as it is!" I pleaded with Ron & Marie. "Sir, it should be more than hard to murder your innocent baby. It should be impossible! Please, your baby boy is no less valuable because he has diminished mental capacity. He is made in the image & likeness of God. Your son is not a mistake or an accident, he is a gift from God. Your conscience, which tells you right from wrong, testifies to you that murdering your little boy is a sin. Please, let us help you." Ron rushed toward me & threatened me, so Francile took a photo of him (in case he attacked). Ron pulled at the door of the abortion clinic but it was still locked. He got back into the car & drove away - but returned later & went into the killing place to have his son delivered into the toilet. That poor little boy!

O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn My glory into shame?

How long will ye love vanity...?

Psalm 4:2

Zoe arrived with two of her girlfriends & a baby. As she was getting herself ready to enter the killing place Allura introduced herself & offered a pre-abortion ministry packet. She also explained to Zoe that God Himself had given her the child she was carrying & that murdering her was a sin. Allura offered her friendship & support through the pregnancy. Zoe stormed over to Allura shouting: "F*#% you! I went to a Christian school for 11 years. I know all about it. If I repent tomorrow, God will forgive me!" Allura gently reminded Zoe of what the scripture says about the sin of presumption: "For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment ..." (Hebrews 10:26 & 27) Zoe did not appear to be affected by the truth but we can & do always trust God to use His Word to pierce & light the darkness of Zoe's soul.

There is no such thing as unwanted children, only unwanting adults.

~ Randy Alcorn

I said hello to Cynthia & offered her our ministry packet. Cynthia smiled at me but refused the material. I explained that God knew her baby before He formed her tiny infant in her womb. God says: "You shall not murder." Cynthia laughed & said: "Well, it's a good thing that I'm an atheist, isn't it!" I responded: "Whatever you call yourself, you are a living soul created in the image & likeness of God & you owe HIm everything. Truth doesn't change according to individual perception. It is eternal." I encouraged Cynthia to choose a loving adoptive couple to become the forever family for her baby. Cynthia shook her head & said: "I don't want to spend my life raising this baby." I reminded her; "That is why adoption is a wonderful way for you to obey the voice of God & the voice of the conscience that He gave you. Murdering your baby is indefensible."

Susan's little Toyota sported a decal of a photo of a handsome Marine with the words "In Loving Memory of Officer _____ Williams" printed around it. I pleaded with Susan not to dehumanize her son or daughter the way the enemy had dehumanized her beloved Officer Williams. That's how it always starts. Make the person you want to destroy LESS than you, less than worthy, less than human, & murdering them becomes acceptable. James 4:1 & 2 explains where war & murder originate. "Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. ..." The desire to murder comes from the heart. The human heart of sin. Susan shouted something but none of us could hear her words. I couldn't help but think: "Is this what her beloved friend or brother or husband died for?" This is why it is so important for Christians to be active & about their Father's business of defending the orphans & making disciples & teaching women & men to obey all that Jesus has commanded us. "And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness." I John 5:19 The glorious gospel of repentance & faith in the person & work of Jesus Christ is the salt & light that preserves a nation & brings glory to the One who deserves all of our praise.

Heather arrived with her mother who explained to Allura that her father shot himself to death on Sunday. Heather was distraught. Her mother wasn't comfortable with the pre-meditated murder of her grandbaby & listened to Allura's offers of holy help. I reasoned with Heather's mom that taking an innocent life in response to the death of a loved one is the opposite of what is healthy & right. It is antithetical to truth & women who murder their children possess legitimate sin-guilt which can & does often haunt them & increase their own likelihood of suicide. [See:]

There were many more divine appointments this morning. We counted over 13 cars, each having at least one aborting mom & a companion inside. Every single abortion-bound mom heard the message of life & hope. All of the aborting mommies & daddies & each of the clinic workers heard Psalm 127:3: "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is His reward." Each mother was offered emotional, physical, financial & spiritual help through her pregnancy. Although we are often tempted to despair over the fact that there was no fear of God in their eyes, we trust the Lord of heaven & earth, Who holds all souls in the palm of His hand. We hope that He was pleased with our obedience to love Him & to love our neighbor as ourselves.

I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.

Psalm 22:10

We live in precarious, hostile times. The people of Georgia want independence & autonomy. Communionism advances by aggression & violence. Our hearts go out to them. But, what about the children in the womb who suffer the advances of violence & aggression of their own mothers & who suffer from the silence & disconcern of the Church of Jesus Christ?

Please consider joining us on any of the six abortion days at Orlando Women's Center abortuary. They murder innocent babies Tuesday (12:30), Wednesday (9am), Thursday, Friday, Saturday (9am) & Sunday (7:30am).

We leave you with a compelling prophetic scripture & a powerful quote from Richard Enrico below.

Together for Life & Eternity,

Sanctuary Ministries

To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to Me?”
Says the LORD.

I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams
And the fat of fed cattle.
I do not delight in the blood of bulls,
Or of lambs or goats.
When you come to appear before Me,
Who has required this from your hand,
To trample My courts?
Bring no more futile sacrifices;
Incense is an abomination to Me.
The New Moons, the Sabbaths, and the calling of assemblies—
I cannot endure iniquity and the sacred meeting.
Your New Moons and your appointed feasts
My soul hates;
They are a trouble to Me,
I am weary of bearing them.
When you spread out your hands,
I will hide My eyes from you;
Even though you make many prayers,
I will not hear.
Your hands are full of blood....

(...from aborted babies)

Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes.
Cease to do evil,
Learn to do good;
Seek justice,
Rebuke the oppressor;
Defend the fatherless,
Plead for the widow.

Isaiah 1:11-17

We can win people to Christ, sing praise songs, preach great sermons, pray authentic prayers, have great and growing churches, but God will not overlook the blood that cries out to Him. Is 1:15: "When you spread out your hands in prayers, I will not listen. Your hands are full of blood". Some churches are doing many good things, but ignoring the daily mass murder of innocent babies. The preaching of the Word is hollow when it omits the tragic plight of the pre-born who are scheduled for death at our nearby abortion clinics and hospitals.

Ministry Update, Saturday, Aug 2, 2008

Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor ...
Ephesians 4:25

Orlando Women's Center abortion clinic outreach
Saturday, August 2, 2008

13 year old Daniel Risler reporting:
Today at the Orlando Woman's Clinic there was about 15 to 20 woman there either to kill their baby or to "support" their friends having an abortion. We (my family and I) thought we would be the only sidewalk counselors today, but Mrs. Francile and her family and Mr. John came in too. Mr. Mark also came.

Mrs. Francile and I went to a car that pulled up and gave out information, but couldn't have a conversation since they spoke Spanish (why can't I speak Spanish yet?!?). Fortunately we had a couple of Spanish brochures with us.

As I stood by the entrance to the clinic, a car pulled in, and as I always do, I offered my pre-abortion pamphlets. There was a girl my age (13) who looked like she was having the abortion. She rolled down the window and was about to take my information from my hand when her mom (at the wheel) suddenly sped up, obviously not wanting her daughter to read what I had to offer. I had to run after the car, and succeeded to get the pamphlet to the girl, but I don't know whether she read it or not.

"Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My Word.
You are of your father the devil, & the desires of your father you want to do.
He was a murderer from the beginning & does not stand for the truth, because these is no truth in him."
John 8:43,44

We spoke to all the people going in. We read scripture to them (John 8:44) about how they were serving their father, the devil, who was a murderer from the beginning. We explained to all the people who had come for abortions that they were doing his (the devil, their father's) bidding by killing their little babies. One girl held her hands over her ears as my mom read the scripture. My mom told her she would help her and her baby, but she just ignored our pleas.

At one point we noticed a couple of women (probably bringing out their purses to the car, as they are not allowed to bring them inside) heading down the driveway towards the back parking lot. A clinic worker (arriving a little late to work) pulled in real fast and honked loudly at the two ladies as they walked down the driveway. The two women had to press themselves against the wall of the building so they wouldn't get hit as the car with the irritated worker inside zoomed past! My mother said to the ladies, "Well, they're the people that 'care' for you and are going to assist with your abortion! You're putting your trust in them?" I think that was a good illustration of how the women are in a dangerous place and shouldn't be there.

At one point, as my dad was speaking to all of the people waiting in line at the front door. One large man (dangerous looking to say the least; he also looked to me like he had drank one too many) who was with his girlfriend in the line, sat down on one of the chairs in the front porch of the clinic. My dad told him, "Come on, sir, does it take any bravery to kill, to murder, a tiny, one-inch-long infant?! You are being a coward today, because you won't stand up for what's right, you're just gonna do what is most convenient to you." The man stood right up, and started to stride resolutely toward my dad, cussing and swearing the whole way. He came face to face with my dad and was just about to give him one or two pieces of his mind (and fist) when my mom yelled out to him, "You're on camera!" He froze in his tracks, turned and saw my mom taking pictures of him with her iPhone. That made him go into another outburst of cussing. He eventually finished up with yelling, "F...... you, f....... you, f....... you, f....... you," pointing to everyone present, even at me and my 11 year old brother, Joseph. He settled down, but still looked indignant. (He is the one in the black shirt heading towards my dad in the photo up top.)

We left at about 9:45 AM when he started yelling again. I think my mom was pretty done with that guy! Mr Mark was there at that point with his big ultrasound truck, so we felt good about leaving.
