I was just thinking how special we all are. If you are getting this note, then you have been called and you are special.
Did you get the call in the middle of the night? Did you say “Here I am Lord”?
I know it’s not easy to be pro-life in these times of ours. And if it were easy we wouldn’t need you.
Not everybody gets the call. God calls us each to do different jobs in HIS vineyard, “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers”. And some are called like John the Baptist to stand up and speak out against the greatest evil of our times – for us it’s abortion. We witness for Life and truth outside the abortion center. We offer LOVE.
So if God is calling you, take the call. Be not afraid, He is with you always. I look forward to seeing you in the vineyard, aka on the street. Bring your church group, your family or your friends. It doesn’t matter if you come alone or bring somebody. If you already been there come again. If you haven’t come yet, just come. Remember someone is always there from 7 am – 7 pm. Sign up or just show up. Stay as long as you want.
Remember, take the call when HE calls. Peace and joy to all. Tim B.
See the stories and pics below from today on the street. Stop back to see updates throughout the day. Let’s start with Sue’s report below from 7-9 am:
My shift buddy Rose and I had a beautiful shift. We got to talk with Tom for a little while when he dropped off the materials and than Rose and I continued sharing stories about St. Rita, Saint of the Impossible. We both have a devotion to her. Rose has visited her Actual Shrine in Cascia, Italy and I have been to her National Shrine in Philadelphia! St. Rita, Saint of the Impossible, pray for us! We did get down to saying the Rosary, Divine Mercy and Holy Face Chaplet, all while Rose handed out so many “Watch me Grow” pamphlets! It was a quiet shift but busy with people on their way to work and school. A few workers and one client did go into PP while we were there. Donna and Diane came a little early to take over. Thanks, Sue
From Donna 9-11 am: It was a quiet peaceful day today. Thank you to Carol and Bill for joining us today. Carol is our church administrator at St. Thomas Anglican Church. We updated the information on our sign with the current statistics from 2018. We had many positive comments and a few blank stares. One lady said “God Bless you and keep up the good work”. Another gentlemen thanked us twice and said “God bless you”. Someone else gave us a thumbs up and another gentlemen told us he was raised Roman Catholic and is a staunch believer and his parents had 10 children. Praise God for providing prayer warriors today!
Blessings For Life, Donna
From Ginny 11-1: We had a very peaceful vigil today.
There were a lot of people who gave us positive reinforcement some told how they were so happy they didn’t have an abortion and how happy they were for the children that they had and others came by and said good work it was very uplifting. Others thanked us for the job we were doing. Rose and Beverly were with me to pray to witness to the unborn today. I’m thankful to God for having them there.
FROM Beth 1-3 pm: Quiet afternoon for Rose and me. Helen joined us for prayers and fellowship.
PP seemed slow today. Hope it’s very slow tomorrow. So slow they just call it quits.
FROM Marie 3-5 pm: The 3-5 shift was covered with Pete and Gloria from St. Mary of the Assumption. The last hour was spent in discussion with a young man who wanted to talk about abortion. He was joined by a friend. During that time two others strangers joined in to support the value of life.
FROM George 5-7 pm: Bill and I had a somewhat uneventful shift yesterday Monday from 5 PM to 7 PM at Planned Parenthood Abortuary. Jim (Flaherty) was with us there also. One middle-aged, very agitated male pedestrian tried to somehow equate my support of an American citizen’s Second Amendment right to defend himself/herself as being hypocritical to our wanting to save babies!? (I equated aspirin to both saving and killing, as well as a scalpel/knife…). Of course, he would not accept that analogy.
A young man with a New York state license plate delivered what appeared to be medical supplies to the abortuary. The yellow plastic boxes showed that they are produced by “McKesson pharmaceuticals”. Do any of us hold stock in McKesson pharmaceuticals? Is there anyway that we could push back on McKesson? If McKesson would not deliver the solutions and medical supplies to perform abortions, I would assume that that could cause PPA to “hurt“, right?
And Tom came a little before 7 PM to pick up all of our materials and signs. What a good soldier for Life he is! … to schedule each day around being there at our start, and at our finish!
PS: why do we continue to call that evil place “Planned Parenthood”? Those two words are so “clean-sounding”. Why not call it what it is: the “Planned Parenthood Abortuary”?
