Operation Save America - CT


Then Jesus said to the   disciples, "If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him deny   himself and take up his cross and follow Me!" Matthew   16:24

 December 2011 - 101   babies killed at The Summit in Bridgeport by surgical abortion.  

3 babies saved!

At Planned Parenthood, New Haven, a total of about 45 babies were killed on the Saturday's in December.

TOTALS FOR 2011- 102   babies saved and 9 salvations

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10

This  is Christina, one of the saved babies from years ago ( Bridgeport) that's grown up to be a   beautiful young lady (10 yrs old). Her mom, Alma, brought her to come see us at the mill.

This is Taraji, another saved baby (New Haven) and her two sisters. Their mom, Sharelle is doing well in school for medical   assistant.

 This is Brodie and Brenda with   Latisha's baby girl born on Dec 7th at Bridgeport Hospital!   PTL!

 St. Raphael's Hospital in New Haven has announced plans to merge with Yale New Haven Hospital, stating that their   pro-life directives would be followed on the St Raphael's Hospital campus. Connecticut Right to Life and other Christian   groups are concerned that the directives might not   be adhered to concerning abortion, birth control, sterilizations and   end-of-life issues. 

 Len Suzio, a newly elected state senator from Meriden, was recently asked to address a commission honoring   a winner of an essay on feminism. In his speech he told them he was married to the same woman for 40 years, they have four daughters together and they have opened their home to needy pregnant women for years. So he concluded, "If you want someone who is sensitive to women's issues, I'm your man!"  :-)

 Len also has made an attempt to defund Planned Parenthood which receives several millions in CT state funds. He raised the   topic that it was a shame that two hospitals in Meriden had to give up millions of dollars due to state cuts but Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the state and the nation, didn't give up anything!   (CRTL)

 "Anyone who knows the good he ought to do and does not do it, sins." James 4:17

OSA Visits Little Rock,     Arkansas

 Operation Save America is starting a STATES OF REFUGE Campaign which will target the five states in the USA that have only one surgical abortion mill left: Arkansas, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. These mills are vulnerable and at their weakest points of survival. This past week OSA met in Little Rock, Arkansas. Little Rock Family Planning Services is the only such facility in the state.  


 
Pastor Mark Kiser from Springfield, Missouri and Carmen Vazquez from CT looking at the only abortion mill in AR.

 Most of the people arrived late Wednesday and we met that night at Pastor Marvin Barham's church: VCFI (Victory Christian Fellowship International)  located at 10321 Maumelle Blvd in North Little Rock, AR 72113. Bill and Ruth Darr were kind enough to pick up the people that flew in and the rest drove there locally or from other states. Pastor Flip Benham led the service each night and taught us segments of his "Christmas Package" series, re-presenting the miracle that took place in Bethlehem (Luke 1:39-45 ).    

 The VCFI music ministry led worship Wednesday through Friday night. Bishop Robert Smith spoke of the anemic condition of the church the first night. He spoke to us about "doing the done". Pastor Marvin (of VCFI) spoke and shared some Hebrew words with us. He said the Church has lost its sense of urgency, that we must  have the credibility of righteousness to back up our prayers and we are supposed to be the conscience of the culture. Carmen and I spoke about OSA-CT. Every night a few saints shared about their ministries. It is so very interesting to hear the experiences of others in this ministry all over our nation.    

We had the morning Bible study and prayer in the hotel parking lot and this is Little Rock Central High School

 Every morning after our 6 AM breakfast we had Bible Study with Flip (6:30 AM) as he  added more tidbits about the "Christmas Package" ( Phil. 2:6-11) and then we left for the mill or the high schools after 7AM. Carmen and I were sent to the mill for sidewalk counseling and the others went to high schools on Thursday and Friday morning. Students were very receptive to take literature and signs were displayed on the streets. Students at the first stop Thursday morning, Little RockCentral High School - focal point of the 1957 integration battle - came face to face with hard truth regarding current violations of the human rights of pre-born babies to exist. We wondered what Social Studies teachers were teaching when one student insisted the U.S. Constitution prohibits the mention of Jesus on the public sidewalk in front of a school. When the school group was done they all came over to the abortion mill. On Friday morning OSA went to West Little Rock High School. Some of the teeens asked for more literature to pass out and they said they were going to put one in each locker. PTL! Becky and Shelley gave out many brochures in the school parking lot.

 After lunch we were off to the University of Arkansas where we gave out the "Sing a Little Louder" brochures and Flip preached in the courtyard. Students on the top floors were listening out the windows and asked Flip to turn up the volume (that's a switch). One student bringing a garbage can around telling students to throw their literature in. Police asked Pastor Hollick and he did have a permit for us to be there. PTL!

Thursday night Rusty Thomas did an awesome teaching on what it really means to be a Christian. He said he has had more grief from the "brethren" than from the pro-aborts. He taught on following Christ through a lifelong journey of justification, sanctification and compassion. The apostle Paul was filled with such bitter sorrow and unending grief that he was willing to give up his salvation if it would save others! (Romans 9:1 & 2 ) You can hear the teachings that were streamed to the Internet at http://ustream.tv/channel/vcfi-tv       

There is also an effort in progress to discourage anyone who delivers to abortion mills. Tony Massey has a website www.Bloodworker.com that he will post pictures of vehicles making deliveries to the death camps. The mill and the vehicle with the company name needs to be in the photo. His email is [email protected] All the men prayed over Pastor Kiser who will be in charge of the local operation at Little Rock's baby killing center. Pastor Hollick gave us our marching orders for each day.

 Friday night Pastor Flip Benham continued his Christmas Miracle (Matthew 2:1 & Rev. 12). You have to deny yourself and pick up your cross. Also, Bruce Garren, the Darrs and Chris Clegg spoke. Pastor Kizer did an awesome testimony/teaching about his life of football, gambling, beer and jail before he met Jesus! It was great, you have to go to the same web address to hear it!   http://ustream.tv/channel/vcfi-tv.      

We did the same schedule for Saturday morning except there was no school outreach. We all went to the death camp. We saw the abortionist, Tom Tvedten, who came in every morning in his pick-up truck. Please pray for his conversion. Some did an outreach and flyer distribution in his neighborhood. We all need to pray for the security guard there, Wayne, that he will repent and get saved and find another job. The police gave us a hard time for being in the driveway handing out materials to cars that stopped. They threatened me with F.A.C.E. At one point there were 8 cop cars and 4 federal agents scrutinizing us. A couple of cops privately said they were for us, but most of the time at the mill they were harassing us for every little thing. Workers would speed into the driveway trying to hit us and the did nothing. At one time a cop went into the abortuary to talk to them.

Heather Mechanic and Dorothy Boyette at the football stadium with their signs.

 At 10 Am Saturday we left the mill and went to a playoff high school football game at War Memorial Stadium where five to ten thousand people gathered. We passed out literature and showed the "hard truth" of abortion in our nation where 3500 precious children are killed daily. Shame on us. We met a man there that was thanking us and wanted to get some people and his church involved.  Three teen girls stopped their car and said they were prolife and so happy we were there. They took literature and encouraged us. Another couple stopped and said they would be with us but their six month baby was still in the hospital since birth. The whole church prayed for them Saturday night. PTL!    

 At the Saturday night service Pastor Hollick asked if anyone wanted to come up and lead the worship. Ante raised his hand and went up there and led a wonderful spirit filled worship with a guitar. He did not hesitate and knew all the words, it was great. Pastor Hollick taught on the magi and the Messiah and how the brethren needs to gather together while there is still time. (Matthew 2:13, John 7:40-41, Zepheniah 2). Bruce Garren and Pastor Kizer spoke and prayed and last but not least Jo Scott came up and talked about what her and her husband Ken do. They are our heroes who are fearless for Jesus! Please pray for Jo's exoneration in there present court case. She also told us about Pepsi and Kraft using aborted babies to test their products on. Ugh!Jodi shared the heart wrenching story of the mom that they brought to the CPC but still decided to kill her baby. We also heard from Tom Huey who was totally humbled by us being there in his city! Here are some of the videos he took: http://youtu.be/34mRrQdMhGk
http://youtu.be/jehKx_fobgc http:///http://youtu.be/5a1Kviii8Vk
Pastor Kevin Battle joined us Saturday night. He previously prophesied the closing of the mill by January 21st. Deanna Waller also put her videos on You Tube at DWALLER 1978.

 Sunday morning there was a church outreach at Agape Church. The Pastor there is Happy Caldwell. "Sing a Little Louder" brochures were passed out. We really didn't have much feed back they took the brochures and went on their way. Comments on our approach were made. Ante Pavkovic delivered a very anointed message on the speaker system and Pastor Hollick and Chris Clegg also delivered messages in the open air.

 Pastor Kiser went into the congregation and the pastors wife gave a prayer before the service thanking God for Obama as our President and that he has the mind of Christ and the heart of God. Pastor Happy said do not be upset with the people outside because we believe the same way about abortion we just have a different approach than they do.

 It was different not to have people from such a large mega church come out to talk to us. The police were called and sat and watched.  A security guard was the only person we talked with at the start of this event when he was opening up the church. He was not in favor of what we were doing.

99 babies were saved this year    
(that we know about) PTL!

"As we know Jesus better, His divine power gives us everything we need for living a godly life.    

He has called us to receive His own glory and goodness!" 2 Peter1:3

 

We had a wonderful time of worship, the Word and fellowship with Ante who is up here in Connecticut doing a job.    

Its been a blessing having him here.    

We came to know TJ when his mom was only 14 years old and pregnant. Now he is 19 and in college on a     basketball scholarship.

We are praying and hoping for his salvation, please keep him in your prayers. The other picture is Danny and Hannah on the streets.

 On the streets in Bridgeport, Vinny, Danny, Ante, and Stan Gray doing the work of our Lord, exposing the     truth about abortion and bringing the Gospel.

"Redeem the time because the days are evil." Ephesians 5:16

Al is disciplining Dionte (a young man who was spared from abortion).  Cheryl from Promise Land Church blessed us with some turkeys and food for the families. Calvary Life people gave us food cards and diapers. Thank you!

 "In the measure you give you shall receive, and more besides." Mark 4:24

Jaiquin, a saved baby, is now 8 months old! Letti, on the right, is due to have her baby soon!

Please pray for a good delivery, healthy baby and her salvation.

 Please pray for a mom Lisa, around 20 years old, who was walking into Planned Parenthood Saturday. Brenda  approached her on the sidewalk and Lisa said "I'm really scared. I'm going in for an abortion." She has a five month old baby boy already. She could not look at the pictures of the aborted babies. She changed her mind and took the bus home. Brenda and Wendee have not been able to contact her. They have a phone number she gave them. The baby's dad and her family didn't want her to abort so we pray she does not come back!

OSA-CT Street Report Oct. 2011
Bridgeport
Babies killed by surgical abortion: 73
Babies saved from abortion: 7

 

This pro-life mom Paige and her son Blake visited Carmen's church on Sunday for youth day service at Promise Land Church of God in West Haven and she said she felt the love of God in the church. Brenda and Kelly ministered to them after the service and she plan's to come back to church. Paige is attending college and is a very good mother. Please pray for her salvation.
 
Thank you Promise Land Church of God in West Haven for the 8 gifts bags donated for the new moms and babies.  Each bag (as seen in the picture) was full of baby items and
also contained a home made baby blanket by Linda Douglas, who attends Promise Land Church.  These gifts will be greatly appreciated by the moms as they realize that they are loved and thought of by others.
 
Promise Land also supplied us with bags of baby food, formula and new clothes for children saved in the ministry. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR GIVING!
We appreciate all of you that help the lost and the needy, we cannot do this alone!
"He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses."  Proverbs 28:27

 

This is my nephew Daniel who was adopted and just turned 10 years old. He has been a part of our ministry since he came here from Russia at the age of two. He recently  helped us deliver a crib,mattress and other items to Sharelle, one of the moms that changed her mind in New Haven.
On Saturday night at the homeless shelter outreach, Daniel shared the gospel with all the kids. He told the story of David and Goliath in a very detailed description. The seven children were really listening and very receptive. Nancy and Brenda sang Christian songs with them. Brenda talked to the youth about modesty and living for Jesus. Hector did a great teaching from the book of Revelation and the Sermon on the Mount. It was about God wiping all the tears from our eyes. Jennie and Wendee shared about the persecuted church in Iran. God bless all of you that take the time out of your busy schedules to serve the Lord! Great is your reward! 
 
A salesman was going into the mill and Stan Scott told him he shouldn't do business with them, he went in and out very quickly and told him "You're right, I'll never going there again!" PTL! Stan turned 86 this Friday and  is still going strong! A woman was going in for a pregnancy test and we explained to her why it was better to go to Hopeline or Mother Setan's at St Vincent's. You do not want to give your money to a baby killing center. Once they find out you are pregnant they will try to sell you an abortion. She left without entering. PTL! This happens every so often.

Alesandra's dad drew this picture of her with Mommy and Daddy. He has very good artistic ability, if you know of anyone looking for an artist, he could use some work. Let me know.

 

Here is a picture of Sharelle with her three little girls, the baby was saved at Planned Parenthood. Today two babies were saved in New Haven! First we went to Bridgeport and it was closed PTL! So we went to New Haven and a baby was saved on the other side with Yvonna and Lisa and a baby was saved on the side Carmen and I were on. The young dad was talking to his mom on the phone and it was someone we went to church with a long time ago. We will probably have to talk to the young lady's mom who wants here to have the abortion, so please pray about this situation.
 
Thank you to the Jenson's who made us a delicious brunch yesterday. We are so grateful for the wonderful people we meet in this ministry! Thank you Jesus!

 

September Street Report 2011

OSA - CT Street Report
Jessica and Santiago had their 2nd son at St. Vincent's Hospital on Saturday, 9/24/11. They named him Joshua which means "God saves". The Lord surely saved this baby and may He fulfill the plan and destiny He has for Baby Joshua's life! He weigh 7 lbs, 3 oz. Please pray for this young couple's salvation.
Mommy and Daddy with their precious little girl! This is Yvette and Lawrence with Liana, she is now 8 1/2 weeks old. They love her so much and are really enjoying being parents. We hope and pray for all of our saved baby's parents to come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. I have witnessed to Yvette about salvation and given her a Bible and the Mark Cahill book, now we all need to pray. Thanks!

Here I am with Britney and Jaiquin, who is now six months old! PTL! Britney got a job and we are in the process of helping her get her car fixed. So they are coming along. She's gone to her mom's church a few times and Lighthouse Church. Pray she comes back to Lighthouse Church with her cousin that wants to go too. Britney's been real tired working and taking care of the two boys but I told her she has to force herself to go to church. Once she goes she will feel better! So please pray for this, she does love Jesus very much.

Carmen and I are pictured with Alma, due to have her third boy. She has a good husband and wonderful boys. She is in school learning to speak English and doing well, she is due in December.

Attorney Jim, one of the prayer warriors, told me a testimony. Just being seen on the streets at the mill saved a baby's life! People he knew saw him there and later talked to him about abortion. He told them why it wasn't good. They were worried about finances. They asked him to help them buy a crib and he did and the baby was saved , PTL! Your efforts do save lives. These people just needed a little bit of help and needed to hear that killing your baby is never the answer to your problems! Be bold and speak out for the "least of these".
They perish because they failed to love the truth. 2 Thessalonians 2:10
Please join us as we go out to the streets to save lives and souls for Jesus. The first week in October the Summit, on 3787 Main St Bridgeport, is planning to kill babies Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, with moms going in between 8 AM and 9 AM. The second week is a change to Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday same time, from what we know. I also found out that you have to be 9 weeks pregnant to get the abortion pills and it takes a 2-2 1/2 hour visit. The surgical abortion takes a 3-4 hour visit. Please pray that child murder will stop and babies would be safe again in their mothers' wombs.

For the Least of These,
Marilyn Carroll / Carmen Vazquez

Needs: We need baby boy clothes sizes 12 months and 24 months for these two boys below:
 
 
and we need a crib for this little girl, now 5 months old.

AMAZING TESTIMONY!
 
"They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony;  they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death." Revelation 12:11 
 
Friends: As some of you remember, we invited Mark Cahill to come here in Nov. 2009 after he spoke at the OSA National Event in Atlanta. Linda Goodall helped us to have him at their church for a double seminar on a Saturday afternoon. We have an outreach in New Haven at Planned Parenthood and Linda comes and stands on the corner with a sign, gospel tracts and books. PLEASE read her amazing testimony below, only GOD could do
this.  MC
 
 
In November, 2009, Mark Cahill came to Planned Parenthood in New Haven, to witness.   While walking down Whitney Avenue, he ran into a Chinese man and his son.  Mark gave them both a copy of his book "One Heartbeat Away".   The man and his son put the books on a shelf without any intentions of reading them.  A few months later the father informed the son that they would be going back to China when he (the father) finished his solar energy research at Yale.  He suggested that Jian ("John") refresh his Chinese skills by translating an English book.  Jian picked "One Heartbeat Away" because it looked easy.  His intention was to translate the book without focusing on content because he pretty much knew what it would be about and didn't want to read it.  He had gone to church with his mom as a child in China, and had made a profession of faith in Jesus while in the Chinese church.  However, when he came to America he got caught up in the world and didn't really want to have anything to do with following Jesus.  However, while translating the book, he got so convicted by what he was reading that he pretty much put down the translating tools and finished reading the book.  He got so convicted that, in his words, he "either just got saved for the first time, or recommitted his life to Jesus if he was truly saved in China."  (Since going back to China this summer and reading over his testimony he wrote out before he got baptized there, he now believes he did get saved in China, but backslid while in America).  In any case, he totally committed (or recommitted) his life to Jesus.  He then had a burden for his unsaved family members to get saved.  He gave the book to his dad and asked him to read it.  His dad ended up getting saved.  Then his grandfather came over from China this past January, and he didn't speak any English.  John had already translated most of the book into Chinese, and he was able to witness to his grandfather in Chinese, and his grandfather got saved.  Both his dad and grandfather were later baptized in the Chinese church in New Haven, after publicly confessing their faith.
 
 
Anyway, back to the Planned Parenthood corner.....this took place in August, 2010:
 
So I was standing at my usual corner, doing the usual stuff, getting the usual middle fingers, swearing and what-not, and I saw this Chinese kid walking down the sidewalk towards me. He looked a little familiar, which wasn't surprising because there are Yale labs and classroom buildings down the street, so I usually see the same students and professors every week.
So anyway, I smiled, said, “Hi!” and went to give him a gospel tract and a Mark Cahill book.
He smiled and said, “You gave me that a while back.”
I said, “The book???”
He said, “Yes!”
I said, “Great! Did you get a chance to read it??”
He said, “Read it???!!! I’ve been translating it into Chinese!!!!!”
After I scraped my jaw off the ground, I said, “You mean you’re a Christian??”
He said, “Yes, I was saved when I was 7. My family goes back and forth between here and China. We have been here for several years. I actually emailed Mark Cahill to thank him and tell him what I was doing.”
I was totally floored!! I said, “Do you go to Yale?”
He said, “No, I’m a freshman in high school, I’m 15! My name is Jian (John).”
I said, “And you’re translating a book into Chinese???!! Well, if you want some more books to give to students, I have some.”
He said, “Are you serious??? I would love some!’ I gave him the whole stack in my bag and he was beside himself.
I said, “Where do you go to church??”
He said, “The Chinese church down the street.”
I said, “Well, I don't want to take you away from your church, but my husband is the pastor at our church, and we have an awesome youth group that’s on fire for Jesus. A bunch of them are here witnessing with me over at that corner. If you want to come visit the church, I'll be happy to come pick you up tomorrow.”
He said, “Actually, I would love to!”
He lived right down the street and gave me his address and said he'd be waiting for me. I told him I’d be there at 9:15. So he went to class (he’s the kid in the picture between the two smiling teens, with his backpack, and he’s walking away.)
So later I thought to myself, “Oh great! He’s only 15! What will his parents think???” I was trying to figure out how to explain myself to them, when another Chinese man came walking down the sidewalk, much older than John. I went to give him a tract and he smiled and said, “You gave me one a while back!” The way he smiled, he looked just like the kid Jian I just met.
I said, “You're going to think this is a strange question, but do you have a son named Jian???”
He said, “Yes, he came by a while ago. We're going to an English class.” 
I said, “I know, I just talked to him!” I explained to him how I was a pastor’s wife, and we preached the gospel at our church, and we had an “on-fire” youth group, and I invited Jian to come if he didn’t mind. He said that would be great. I said he could come too, and he did!  He loved the church, and when my husband gave a testimony about Jian, the dad was in tears.  Jian's been coming every week since then.
Anyway, one day I asked Jian to send me a page from his Chinese translation, and he did.  It was so cool-looking, that I forwarded it to Mark Cahill.  A couple of weeks later I got an email form Mark Cahill.  He said it was unbelievable what had just transpired!  He said that a couple of weeks ago he had gotten an email from a missionary friend in China who had been giving out "One Heartbeat Away."  He told Mark it would be so much more beneficial it there was a Chinese translation of it, and did Mark have one?  Mark wrote back and said that he was sorry but he did not know anyone that could translate it into Chinese.  Then a couple of days later he got my email with the sample page!!!  He sent it to the missionary and said, "What do you think?  The kid is only 14!"  The  missionary said it was an excellent translation, and exactly what he was looking for!  He asked for whatever chapters John had finished.  Then a week later he got a call from a friend in Hawaii who was an evangelist.  He told Mark he kept running into Chinese people in China, and did he have a Chinese translation of "One Heartbeat Away"..... Jian send HIM what he had.  Well, since then the email list has gotten bigger and bigger, Jian has finished the translation and put it on a web site,  www.knowjesus.tk, and he is in the process of getting it published.  It has been distributed on flash drives all over China!!
 
John went back to China this summer and witnessed.  His dad stayed in China, but Jian came back to the U.S. to live with us while he finished high school, so he can go on to Bible college when he graduates. 
 
He will be back at the clinic with me tomorrow, witnessing to the Chinese community up the street.   He's such a blessing from God, and I'm so glad that I was at that corner when he walked by!  
 
God has continued to expand my "international student ministry" on the same corner.  One day I saw my friend Vinny talking to some people at his corner across from me.  I was just leaving, but I ran over to give them a Mark Cahill book.  It turns out that they were missionaries to the Muslims in Pakistan and they were studying at Yale for a year.  I invited to pick them up for church the next and they came.  I picked them up at OMSC, the Overseas Ministry Service Center.  From there I met missionaries from all over the world, staying at OMSC for different lengths of time.  I met more and more of them, and before I knew it I was stuffing my van to the brim, and having to bring back-up vans.  I also met other international students at the corner, staying at various apartments around the clinic.  Several more have called me this week and I brought them to church as well.  I had to get a "taxi license" to drive our church's 15-passenger van to fit them all.  I will be using it for the first time this Sunday.  Through my corner, I met a visiting scholar from China, who got saved in the Chinese underground church, but whose husband was an atheist.  I started discipling her one or two days a week, and her husband listened in on our Bible studies.  Long story short, he got saved in June, and they were both baptized at our church before they went back to China.  They are now both ministering at the underground church in China!
 
And this all started from standing at that corner week after week...... 

I just stood there!  God did the rest!    Here's a picture from inside my van one Sunday, and also the baptisms of the Chinese couple, whose names you can't say for safety reasons!  :o)

August Street Report 2011

OSA-CT Street Report
 
August 2011 Stats for Bridgeport:
    99 Babies were killed by surgical abortion (not counting medical and chemical abortions)
    8 babies were spared
    5 salvations (PTL! thank you Jesus! )
 
"The thief cometh not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." John 10:10
 

This is a little boy, Jeremiah, saved at Planned Parenthood in New Haven. He has been given up for adoption to a Christian family! The most loving thing a mother can do when she feels she cannot handle another child is to give her baby to a loving family, instead of killing her baby in the womb at an abortion mill. I thank God that Jasmine did the right thing. Keep her in your prayers and all her other children. Evelyn, her mother, came to church with her three grandchildren.

Please pray for all the children that have been saved. Since 1990, 2162 babies have been saved that we know of and 396 salvations! God is so good to us to allow us to co-labor with him in His work. It is an honor and a privilege!

 

 Here's an updated picture of the twin girls, Megan and Morgan, born August 3rd with their sisters. Five beautiful girls, what a blessing!

 

 

We have an ideal situation in front of the abortion mill to pass out gospel literature and lead people to the Lord. Danny gives out hundreds of tracts weekly at this location and Wendee has done the same across the street . God is comical, he put a bus stop and a methadone clinic right near us. It is a harvest ground.

 
This is Brian, he is five years old, he is a saved baby.
His mom brought him to come visit us on Saturday.
Every child is such a precious gift from God!
 
Please pray for this man above in this picture. He has been harassing us for a while driving by and beeping his horn and yelling out obscenities. This Friday he over did it and was arrested. The court date is Sept 22, please pray that justice will be done.
 
HELP: We need a crib for Sharelle's baby girl that was born in April, if you can help with this please let me know. Plus we would like to help Patricia find a rent to stay with her four grandchildren. Patricia is TJ's grandma pictured above. She currently lives in Norwalk at a relatives house and they all sleep in one bedroom. If you know of any reasonable rents let us know ASAP.

Come join us every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday mornings from 8 AM- 10 AM as we reach out to moms that find themselves where they should not be. We will be there until the killing stops. The gates of Hell will not prevail against the Church. We are the Church. Jesus is our head and we are His body. We are His hands, his feet, his mouthpiece on the earth until he comes back. Just show up and see what God will do.
For the Least of These,
Marilyn Carroll

We had a baby shower for Danielle. It was an awesome time of fellowship with her family and friends. She got all the baby items she needed, PTL! 

 These are a set of twin girls that were born Aug 3, to a happy couple!

 The doctors tried to get this mom (in her 40's) to abort this precious boy but she did not and look at him!

 

 

These are the proud parents of this little girl Liana, who was born August 3rd ! PTL! Three babies born in one day!

 We went to visit Danielle who had her baby Friday August 5, 2011. Four baby girls were born that one week! PTL!

 

These two young men are fruit of our ministries. God shows us these things to encourage us to go on. We were able to help their moms back 17 years ago when they made the right decision. These are two fine young men who both love the Lord!

                  OSA's Orlando Report By Rusty Thomas

Dear Champion of the Lord and the Preborn,
                                                                OSA's Orlando Report

"You shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand you still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you" (2 Chronicles 20:17).

This was the Scripture verse Flip and I chose to lead us into Orlando for this year's OSA national event. Little did we realize how significant it would become. Historically, this passage of Scripture records a time when Israel was threatened by three pagan armies who conspired to destroy their nation. King Jehoshaphat, rightly concerned about this national threat, sought the Lord and proclaimed a fast. All of Judah gathered together to seek deliverance.

The armies facing God's people back then were Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir. Interestingly enough, the dangers facing America are also three-fold. The exposed areas Satan is using to destroy us are child-sacrifice (the shedding of innocent blood), the homosexual agenda, and Islam. The first two abominations are the idolatrous roots, while Islam is the dangerous fruit. The left in America has been quite successful in garnering for themselves the most favored business status, abortion, the most favored class, homosexuals, and the most favored religion, Islam. According to brother Flip, their favorites, however, are nothing more than "three different colored gloves (red, pink, and black) that contain the fist of the Devil."

Each year as we prepare to enter a city for our national event, we also recognize the need to fast and pray. The enemies of the cross are growing bolder. They are filled with fury towards anything holy, righteous, or lawful. God haters on every front seek to eradicate the influence of Christianity in order to keep their most favored bloody, perverse, and deceptive status. This year in Orlando was no different. We set aside three days to fast and pray as we sought the Lord to rescue our nation from the battle within and without. Our prayers, I'm here to report, were gloriously heard from on high and in ways we could not imagine.

Casey Anthony's Court Trial

"And judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yes, truth fails; and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment" (Isaiah 59:14, 15).

When we chose Orlando, affairs were set in motion years ago that we had no earthly idea would come to pass during our national event in Orlando. Specifically, there were two court trials whose scheduling corresponded with our visitation. The first we became aware of was the tragic case of Casey Anthony and her murdered daughter Caylee. This particular case in Orlando started three years ago. Ironically, she was found "not guilty" and released on the same day we scheduled our Solemn Assembly.

 

                        Caylee and Esther's Memorial Service at the Orange County Jail

The following is Flip's account of this providential timing:

God gave us an incredible platform to connect the dots between what Cayce Anthony did to her little Caylee Marie and what mothers are doing to their children in the womb via abortion.  Cayce just waited two and a half years longer to get rid of Caylee (Late-Term Abortion) than the mothers who have aborted their children.  All of the eyes of the world were on the Orange County Jail as Cayce Anthony was about to be released.  National and international media were everywhere.  The stage was set. 

 

Early Sunday morning, we conducted a funeral service at the Orange County Jail for little baby Esther, a child aborted by her mother and father.  We then held an open casket viewing of this precious little baby girl.  Though all the media was there with their huge satellite trucks, no one came.  No one cared.  No one wanted to see. 

 

The Bible tells us that God is not mocked, whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap.  We are reaping a horrible harvest of violence in America today, as blood is coursing down the corridors of our schools, workplaces, and streets.  If we sow bloodshed in the womb, we will reap bloodshed in the streets.  To stop violence in the streets, we must first stop bloodshed in the womb.   

 

The world did not want to see nor did it want to hear God's message to America.  But it was proclaimed from the rooftops, nevertheless. 

 

The media was too busy treating the symptoms of America's injustice to report the root cause. The abortion culture has spawned incredible devastation upon the American family. It has turned formerly concerned parents into predators who prey upon their own children in order to obtain a better life. This was proudly displayed by Casey Anthony's "Bella Vida" (the good life) tattoo. She sported this tattoo after Caylee was missing.

Millions of abortion-minded women display the same cavalier attitude when it comes to their own offspring. Children must be disposed of in order to continue the party life unhindered by parental responsibility. This is nothing less than the "all about me and I pity the fool who seeks to awake me from my deceptive selfishness" syndrome that leads to the murder of children. Flip commenting on this tragedy stated:

Justice has failed, but judgment remains!

 

God's judgment for Casey Anthony began the moment she "chose" her right to "Bella Vida" (the good life) which eclipsed little Caylee Marie's right to any life at all.  There is a law of spiritual gravity that is as absolute as the law of gravity on this earth.  It applies to all people, at all places, at all times.  You may disagree with it, but that does not change its absolute effect upon you.

 

Yes, a final judgment remains for Casey Anthony but her judgment has already begun.  It is a spiritual gravity as certain and as objectively true as the physical law of gravity.  "A man tormented by the guilt of murder will become a fugitive until death; let no one support him."  Proverbs 28:17.  That which Casey thought was going to set her free to do whatever she wanted to do, has already become a ball and chain around her neck dragging her into the depths of despair, despond, and depression.  There won't be enough Margaritas to assuage her guilty conscience, not enough lines of cocaine she can snort, not enough relationships with other men, not enough hours on a psychiatrist's couch, not enough money, not enough education, not enough fame, not enough Zoloft or Prozac, to make her pain go away. 

 

The way she thought would set her free, has made her a fugitive, a slave until death.  God has given us Casey Anthony to bring us into a full blown realization of what happens when a mother aborts (kills) her own child.  The courts of this world may say it is legal or give one a "Not Guilty" verdict, but in God's court the judgment has already begun. (Editor's note: Flip and I tried to visit Casey and minister the Gospel to her in the hopes she would recognize her wretched state, repent and find the salvation of God.)

 

Many were outraged by this verdict, but why should they be? Roe vs. Wade trained an entire generation with a demonic view towards life, babies, and family. The message is clear, if you cannot handle the responsibility of your actions then kill it. Now, we are upset that people are living out the lessons learned by this unjust ruling. Injustice begets more injustice. Except this time, it is spilling out of the womb in the light of day rather than hidden in American death camps that dot the landscape of our beleaguered nation.

 

God is going back to Church Campaign

 

"Stand in the gate of the LORD's house, and proclaim there this word, and say, hear the word of the LORD, all you of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the LORD...If you oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, forever and ever" (Jeremiah 7:2, 6, 7).

 

After the memorial service to honor Caylee, Esther, and all the other Caylees and Esthers killed in America, we went to the gate of the Lord's house. One team went to an apostate "church," the First Unitarian Church of Orlando. This was the "church" who hosted all the pro-aborts of the National Organization of Women assigned to protect the altars of Moloch from the "domestic terrorists" and the "Christian Taliban." The NOW gang put out a national call to protect their "sacred temples" and all they could muster was a pitiful collection of aging feminists, which amounted to about 5 or 6.

 

Another team went to a large seeker-friendly evangelical church called, Northland. Pastor Joel Hunter, a spiritual counselor to President Obama, is the senior pastor. We set up signs, praise and worship, and passed out a flyer called, Sing a Little Louder. We came to them with a Macedonian Call, "come help us," and to remind them of their responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11, 12; 31:8, 9).

 

Solemn Assembly

 

"And why behold you the mote that is in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye? Or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull out the mote out of your eye; and, behold, a beam is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother's eye" (Matthew 7:3-5).

 

That evening we conducted our Solemn Assembly. This provided us the opportunity to point the finger in the right direction and set the proper spiritual tone for the rest of the week. The following is the prayer topics we covered. Our holy desire was to meet the righteous conditions set forth in God's word and trust that the Lord would hear from heaven, forgive or sins, and bring healing to our land (2 Chronicles 7:14).

1) The doctrine of bloodguiltiness by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

 

Scripture Reference: Psalm 106:38, "They even sacrificed their sons and daughters to demons, and shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and daughters whom they sacrificed to the idols of Caanan; and the land was polluted with the blood."

 

Prayer Thought: Leading the Church in repentance for her past failures of not actively opposing the shedding of innocent blood and to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death.

 

2) The compromise, indifference, and apathy of the Church by Pastor Victor Morgan

 

Scripture Reference: Proverbs 25:26, "A righteous man who falters before the wicked is like a murky spring and a polluted well." See also Lam. 4:12, 13.

 

Prayer Thought: The wicked cannot rise in power unless they first pass through the sins and compromise of the Church. A Church that has veered from or compromised the truth of God's Word always empowers a tyrannical government and a wicked culture. God forgive us!

 

3) The failure of men by Doc Johnson

 

Scripture Reference: Psalm 78:9-11, "The men of Ephraim, being armed and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle. They did not keep the covenant of God; they refused to walk in His law, and forgot His works, and his wonders that He had shown them."

 

Prayer Thought: The failure of men to fight the battle against the prevailing spirit of lust (videos, magazines, internet, etc.) that rages from within and steals our moral authority to lead courageously in our homes, churches, and communities.

 

4) The fear of man and a man-pleasing spirit by Ante Pavkovic

 

Scripture Reference: John 12:43, "For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God." See also Galatians 1:10.

 

Prayer Thought: We have become more concerned about offending men and keeping our reputations than our fear of offending God.

 

 

5) Return to God's Law which is the standard that is binding upon all men, at all times, and in every nation by Cal Zastrow

 

Scripture Reference: Hosea 4:6, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children."

 

Prayer Thought: We are called to build our nation and its institutions upon the righteous foundations of His eternal law lest we be overtaken by wicked ideologies and our children fall prey to a profane and depraved culture.

 

6) The squandering of our costly, godly heritage by Rev. R.C. Sproul Jr.

 

Scripture Reference: Psalm 88:12, "Shall Your wonders be known in the dark? And Your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?" See also Isaiah 51:1, 2.

 

Prayer Thought: We have disdained our godly forefathers by forfeiting their costly legacy and defrauded our children by wasting their righteous inheritance.

 

                            Weekly Street Activities

 "And the lord said to the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled" (Luke 14:23).

 

Starting Monday morning, July 18, we organized several teams and sent them out to the highways and byways of Orlando. We had five teams cover the five death camps from Monday to Saturday morning. We had a sign team that covered major intersections throughout the city as well. There was a display team that set up at the University of Central Florida who passed out literature and engaged the students. They also set up the display in front of city hall in downtown Orlando for our special memorial service for baby Esther. Moreover, we sent out a special team that leafleted abortionists' residences, offices, and other key locations. Needless to say, Orlando could not escape the charge God has against us for killing His babies (Hosea 4:1, 2).

 

Each night at our rallies, powerful messages and testimonies of divine appointments and open effectual doors of ministry were shared. Testimonies of souls surrendering their lives to Christ and families rescued at abortion mills glorified God. It was a time of refreshing and rejoicing in the presence of the Lord.

 

The other mission performed by OSA this year in Orlando was the Personhood petition drive to protect Florida babies in the womb by love and by law. To sweeten the deal, there were first place, second place, and third place prizes for those who gathered the most signatures. For the youngest person with the most signatures, the prize was to smash brother Flip with a pie at our Friday night rally. This honor went to little Gracia Campana. Many rejoiced as brother Flip received his just "deserts." Altogether, OSA saints collected about one thousand signatures for the week.

 

The Second Court Trial

 

"Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner" (Proverbs 11:31).

 

The kingpin of the abortion industry in Central Florida is James Pendergraft. He is the one who gave the awful boast, "If the Church would stop frequenting my clinics, I'd be out of business." Sad statement, but is it true? I suspect there is a basis to this wicked taunt. Regardless, unbeknownst to Flip and I, there was a case against him that started ten years ago. It just so happened to commence on Tuesday, July 19 at the Orlando County Circuit Court during our national event. Imagine the shock, when this notorious abortionist looked behind him in the court room and saw Flip Benham, Chet Gallagher, and me staring at him. He went over to his lawyer and complained, "The antis (Anti-abortion) are here." His lawyer replied, "There is nothing I can do about it."

 

That was not only true concerning us, but the lawyer was also hapless to help deliver Pendergraft from a civil lawsuit that plundered his abortion empire. Pendergraft was hit with 18 million in the civil suit itself and another 18 million in punitive damages, totaling over 36 million dollars.

During the trial we saw the latter part of our theme Scripture verse fulfilled in 2 Chronicles 20:17. All parties involved in this tragedy, Pendergraft, abortionist Randall Whitney, and the staff at the abortion mill scrambled to distance themselves from responsibility for failing to kill the child. She survived and as a result, they began to throw each other under the bus. This is exactly what happened to the pagan armies who threatened Israel. They eventually turned and devoured each other as Israel stood and saw the salvation of their Lord.

 

 

                                                    Special Venues

I will conclude this report with three special venues that took place on Friday, July 22. In the morning, we gathered at city hall to conduct our memorial service for baby Esther. As we pulled up to the area, the sights and sounds took our breath away. The pro-life display was fully set up and the praise and worship of God resounded off the downtown buildings. The presence of God energized the atmosphere. The sun was rising and its rays shined upon a church steeple mounted with a cross. We were literally standing in the shadow of the cross.

The stage was set to memorialize little baby Esther. Some young men acting as pallbearers carried the casket containing Esther. Others bore flags and were led by our bagpipe player, Nathan, who performed Amazing Grace. They escorted baby Esther to the table set up in the midst of city hall. A few men and women spoke passionately, lovingly, and firmly against the culture of death, which was responsible for Esther's death.

"Thou dead, Esther still speaks" was the theme message (Hebrews 11:4). She has volumes to communicate to a nation staggering under the weight of bloodguiltiness and our divine purpose was to give her voice. After the speeches, folks filed by and placed flowers upon her casket, begging forgiveness for what we did and did not do for her and the nameless sons and daughters of America consumed by America's bloodlust (Matthew 25:40, 45). May God have mercy and somehow end this holocaust without ending our nation. 

                                                          Mosque

"And Elijah came to all the people, and said, how long halt you between two opinions? If the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him" (1 Kings 18:21).

Friday afternoon, OSA Christian men experienced an old fashion Mt. Carmel showdown. We visited the largest Mosque in Orlando. This particular Mosque had been investigated for supporting the terrorist group, Hamas. Apparently to repair their image, they put together a deceptive sign campaign. Signs like, "Did you know that over 1,500,000,000 Muslims believe in Jesus?" "Truly, this nation of yours is one nation, and I am the Lord, so worship me -God (Qur'an 21:92)," "Jews, Christians and Muslims, same God- shared beliefs...let's talk," and, "There is only one God. Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad are messengers of God." There were other signs as well, but you get the gist of their misleading strategy.

Our purpose was to set the record straight and dismiss the deceptive propaganda put forth by this Mosque. After dismantling and refuting their lying claims, we preached the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom. It created no small stir. Cameras were running while a loud speaker with a siren blasting tried in vain to silence the truth and love of Christ.

Our message, however, was clear, "The Jesus you speak of is not the Jesus of the Bible. He is another Jesus. You are led by a different spirit and you follow a different gospel that is no gospel at all. Allah cannot save you. Muhammad cannot save you. Religion and good works cannot save you. Only the Jesus of the Bible can save you. Only God in the flesh, crucified and resurrected, can redeem your soul from hell."

Abortionist Randall Whitney Visits our Church Service

"When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).

In all the years of fighting the battle against the culture of death, never did we witness a practicing abortionist visit one of our church services. That dry spell ended in Orlando at this year's national event. Flip commenting on this incredible visit stated:

 

Note this well.  I have been privileged to share the Gospel of Christ with Randall Whitney on more than one occasion.  He attended our last Rally session on Friday night, though most of you were unaware of his presence.  He came as a guest of Mark Hall who has been sharing Christ with Randall for many years.  Rusty preached that night and I know that God spoke to Randall's heart.  Please keep Randall Whitney and his wife in your prayers. Pray that God will save Him, through our wonderful Lord Jesus Christ!

 

After the service, Jo Scott followed Mr. Whitney in the parking lot to witness to him. This is her account:

 

I asked him what he thought of the service, he responded, "It was powerful." "Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins?" I asked. He said that he didn't believe that anyone could die for anyone else's sins. He said that he believes in a god, but a god that is only love. I explained to him if his god loves the rapist and the raped there is no love, just chaos. Jesus loves intensely and he hates those who come against what he loves. I explained that He is always ready to forgive but he is also just and holy. Ps. 5:5, 7:11

 

Whitney believes in evolution so I asked him about his conscience. I explained, "In order for something to evolve it must have at least a cell, the conscience does not." He agreed. Then I explained that God wrote the law on our hearts and that knowledge has no cell, or atomic weight. No scientist in the world can explain how all people everywhere innately know the difference between right and wrong. Then I explained to him that God gave him a conscience because that's where God goes to talk to us. I looked him in the eyes and said with conviction, "That is why the first time you killed a child in his mother's womb, you knew it was wrong." It was one of the few points I made with the 77 year old abortionist that he did not have an answer for, he just let it go.

 

He told me that the Bible says nothing about the child in the womb. I quoted Exodus 21:22, "If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follows: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe."

 

He seemed a little shocked at that, but quickly regained his composure and with a superior attitude and asked, "You believe in a god like that?" I answered you bet I do. He asked me if I've been watching what's going on in the world. He said that the new democratic rule was leading the world to peace. He was very excited about it. I explained that salvation will not come from legislation. It's a free gift and it comes from Jesus.

 

When talking about his abortion practice he said that he believes that he is truly helping women. He says he, "Really loves women." And that he KNOWS that he is helping them. He refuses to listen to anything to the contrary. Our conversation went on for twenty minutes and what is interesting to me is he sees himself as a messiah of sorts, helping women in these tough times. But at the same time reality has smacked him upside the head lately. He slapped a woman in his office recently and he was arrested for it. He was called to testify at Scott Pendergaft's trial this past week and he was probably the key witness to sink his colleague.

 

Whitney is not board certified in 7 critical fields and Pendergraft left him alone with a patient and went home. She complained that they would not give her anything for pain and then left the office, went to a hospital and delivered a child severely damaged by the botched abortion. Finally, he recently had surgery to insert a pacemaker. His whole image of himself may be
shaken and this may be an opportunity to shine the light of Jesus through the cracks in his facade.

 

I know this report is lengthy, but I pray it edifies, encourages, and challenges all who read it. This is what happens when the church crosses the line of obedience and shows up at the gates of hell. They cannot prevail in Jesus name!    

IN KING JESUS' SERVICE,

FROM FLIP: Pastor Clint Decker - First Timer at OSA National Event 
Pastor Clint Decker is a friend of Don and Venita Rosenow from Clay Center, Kansas.  Don and Venita have been long time friends of Operations Save America and have attended many (Don has attended almost all) of our National Summer Events.  They invited Pastor Clint to attend and God made a way for him to join all of us in Orlando.  Here is Pastor Clint’s report.  Enjoy.         ~ Flip

Prayer Partners,

 

Greetings in Christ! Just a few days ago I got back home from a jam-packed-six-day-ministry-trip to Orlando, Florida. It was the annual National Event for Operation Save America (OSA). I was invited to attend by some friends. The trip left ministry stretch marks all over me. Most of the things I did, I have never done before.

 

During my time I participated in several outreaches including two abortion clinics, the neighborhoods of two abortion doctors, an Islamic mosque, joined in two memorial services for aborted babies and attended the jury trial of a local abortion doctor in Orange County district court and all I can say is “Wow!”.

 

 As I saw it, OSA sees themselves primarily as biblical evangelists.  They preach the gospel in the open air at the places were sin is tolerated and growing like a noxious weed. They passionately, courageously and steadfastly call men and women to Christ through exposing the sins of abortion, homosexuality, the false religion of Islam and other sins plaguing our nation. I agree with their main message of repentance. It is the same as the Old Testament prophets, John the Baptist, Jesus and the early church. Apostle Peter declared in the open air, “Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19-20).  

 

I had the opportunity to preach the good news from a sidewalk to some National Organization for Women (NOW) volunteers that were in support of the local clinic. What a joy! When women walked into the clinics I joined with others in urging them to choose a better way for their unborn baby. I prayed the Scriptures to myself interceding on behalf of the people and the unborn babies going in and out of the clinics. When a Muslim outside the local mosque told me, “I am drawn to Islam because Allah gives me peace” I lifted up Jesus and urged Him to turn from Allah and to Christ who offers true and lasting peace.  

 

 I visited with a woman who walked by an abortion clinic holding her three week old grandbaby.  She said her daughter nearly followed through on an abortion at the clinic. Praise God she didn’t. Also, praise God that she listened as we shared the gospel.  She along with her cousin yielded their lives to Jesus.

 

While eating lunch at a park with our group one day, God led me to visit with a local gentleman sitting by himself, Phillip. He was a Haitian man who spoke broken English. As we visited I turned the corner and God opened the doors to share the gospel. Awhile later we kneeled at the picnic bench with two other believers that came over and Phillip prayed to surrender his life to Jesus.   Amen!

 

I went with my opinions about this type of ministry based on what I have heard from mainstream secular and Christian media over the years. Neither media group seemed to encourage this type of ministry based on their history of reporting.   However, I’m sold on it! Yes, I didn’t agree with everything I saw and heard, but most of it I did. And, I can’t deny the fruit of their labors. It is a fact that God has used them to save thousands of babies and thousands of lost souls. They weep over them and the sins of our nation. They are passionate to be holy as God is holy. They are some model biblical preachers, mining the Word for its deep truths and sharing it with others. They love in word and deed giving themselves in countless ways and they identify with the sufferings of Christ. Yet, they continue on because of their love for Jesus and others. What an inspiration they were to me to set my face like flint toward the cross of Christ and press on in faith, boldness and holy love.        

 

A Slave of Christ,

Prolife Pastor Guilty of Stalking
Webmaster's note: This editorial was sent by Marilyn Carroll to the Charlotte Observer:
Dear Editor;
 
I am writing this letter about the article by F. Ordonez and C. Ridenhour that Pastor Flip Benham was found guilty of stalking! The verdict and mentality of this judicial system coincides with the Casey Anthony verdict. A lying, scheming young mother is judged "not guilty" after covering up the murder of her two year old child and a pro-life pastor that saves babies from abortion is judged "guilty" of stalking an abortion doctor he never even met. Wow! What kind of a world do we live in?
 
Does the court know anything about First Amendment freedom of speech, freedom to distribute literature and to freedom to assemble? Remember, this is America. These same people who are so "tolerant" of terrorists who killed over 3,000 Americans in the "9-11" attack, and so tolerant of so called "doctors" that rip little babies apart limb by limb. Then they call peaceful pro-life activists that never hurt anyone "stalking and terrorizing" abortion providers!  America needs to repent.
 
There supposedly wasn't enough evidence to convict Casey Anthony of any degree of murder but there is enough "evidence" to convict a peaceful pastor of stalking a doctor he never even met. Maybe the reason the abortionist is "afraid" is because he feels so guilty after killing all those children he has aborted? How can he sleep at night?
 
In God's word He tells us to "Take no part in the worthless pleasures of evil and darkness, but instead, rebuke, and expose them." Ephesians 5:11
 
I challenge anyone reading this to go to YouTube and watch an abortion video and then tell me who the "terrorists" really are: the pro-life Christian trying to save lives or the abortionist who kills innocent baby girls and baby boys?

Please pray for Pastor Flip Benham, our national director, who is going through a trial right now. He is charged with disturbing the tranquility and stalking. This charge is from the time the OSA leaders went through the abortionist neighborhood and office building with flyers asking people to pray that Abortionist Flood would stop killing babies (Feb. 2010). Please pray that justice and truth would prevail! 
 
"God appointed judges throughout the nation in all the fortified cities, and He gave them these instructions: ALWAYS THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE PRONOUNCING JUDGEMENT. REMEMBER THAT YOU DO NOT JUDGE TO PLEASE PEOPLE BUT TO PLEASE THE LORD. HE WILL BE WITH YOU WHEN YOU RENDER THE VERDICT IN EACH CASE THAT COMES BEFORE YOU. FEAR THE LORD AND JUDGE WITH CARE, FOR THE LORD OUR GOD DOES NOT TOLERATE PERVERTED JUSTICE, PARTIALITY, OR THE TAKING OF BRIBES." 2 Chronicles 19:5-7
June 2011 stats:
Surgical abortions:90

Jenene (Nicky) had her baby after being induced and enduring 18 hours in labor! She is one happy mother with her gift from heaven a baby boy, Cilmere Sa-quan,
 6 lbs. 12 oz., 18.9 inches long. He was born at St. Raphael's Hospital on June 29th 12:45 AM (midnight hour). She has three other children and she is attending Promise Land Church and growing  with the Lord!! We welcome baby Cilmere to the Body of Christ!! Nicky calls Carmen her "angel".
 
This is baby Blake and he is now  2 1/2 yrs. old with his mother Paige. He is a baby that was saved from abortion in Bridgeport. Paige just graduated college and is an excellent  mom. They came to visit with us on Wednesday and we are so proud of what God is doing in their lives! Kelly invited them to bible study
at our church and she plans to attend with her sister Stacy who is her triplet! Pray for Alan, baby Blake's dad who needs Christ in his life!!
Baby Blake needs a twin bed since he is growing out of his crib. "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least
of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." Matthew 25; 40
 
Carmen and Sylvia went to visit with the parents of a 19 year old Hispanic young lady that changed her mind this month. The parents are Christian. The mom was surprised and the dad said he suspected. The daughter repented to her parents for getting pregnant out of wedlock. She promised to obey, help around the house, take parental advice and not have premarital sex. They all prayed together and read Psalm 139. This young mom was so relieved after hiding this secret for four months! The next day she went to the youth explosion with Kelly at Promiseland Church. She went up for prayer and is not living in fear anymore! Praise be to God!
 
A Mexican couple changed their mind today after sitting in the car for over an hour and then going into the mill. Carmen was speaking to them in Spanish.  Bob and Carmen were holding pictures on top of the fence of a live baby and an aborted baby. They came out of the mill quickly and did change their minds. They were hugging each other! PTL!     
 
A lady that always drives by decided to stop and encourage us for what we are doing. She said she wants to come out with us and her 3 year old daughter. PTL! 
 
Andre is one of the babies saved 20 years ago and is now 19 yrs. old! He graduated high school  with a 4 year scholarship to go to
Niagara college in Buffalo, N.Y. to play basketball. He is the oldest of 5 children that are all living with his grandmother Patricia in city
of Norwalk. His mother Tamie was 15 yrs. old when we met her at Summit. She also graduated from Norwalk high school and was a basketball
star. Al Vazquez refereed her basketball games during her high school years and now he referees Andre's games! PTL
The other picture, taken by Daniel Eldredge, is of us celebrating what Jesus has done at Dunkin Donuts after a morning of ministry out in the hot sun. (Nancy, Vinny, Stan, Marilyn, Danny, Wendee, Ed, Asia, Josiah, and Noah. PTL! for the people of God that take time out of their busy schedules to rescue the innocent from slaughter and save souls for Jesus at the very "gates of Hell!"
 
We are very busy getting furniture and baby needs to the moms that changed their minds. One of the moms, Shaylah, is coming to Planned Parenthood tomorrow to help other moms make the right decision like she did when she changed her mind from aborting. The Bridgeport mill is closed tomorrow because of 4th of July weekend so we will all be in New Haven. Some of the youth from Calvary Life will be coming out to save lives and souls for Jesus! PTL! Please join us.

God Went Back to School Today 
Bunnell High, Stratford 
 
"I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me because of their testimony. My prayer for all of them is that they will be one, just as you and I are one, Father -- that just as you are in me and I am in you, so they will be in us, and the world will believe you sent me." (Jesus' speaking) John 17:20-21
"I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one- as we are -- I in them and you in me, all being perfected into one. Then the world will know that you sent me and will understand that you love them as much as you love me. " John 17: 22-23 
 
Twelve of us got up real early this morning to be at the high school before 7 AM to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to teens in our community. (Michael, Rich, Gloria, Susan, Tom, Ron, Pam, Brenda, Vinny, Carmen, Danny & Me). The police were notified yesterday of our outreach.  We prayed before and after that God's word would go forth and do what He wanted to accomplish. Thanks to all of you for laying down your comforts to try to help your neighbor. We passed out info on salvation,abstinence and abortion. We used Rusty's flyers, Mark Cahill's booklets and OSA tracts. We believe that God will use every piece of literature for His Glory!  We also had signs showing the difference between a live baby and an aborted baby.
We gave out many of pieces of literature. It was a suburban school, not like the inner city schools where most of the kids walk in. Most kids at Bunnell either drive in, are dropped off or go on a bus. We were able to give literature to most of the students that walked in. Some of the parents weren't happy. One asked the police woman if it was legal for us to be there and pass out literature and she said "yes". It is our first amendment freedom to assemble, to distribute literature and hold signs. This is still America.  A dad asked Carmen for the literature and then proceeded to complain about us being there and talked to our attorney who was there with us. He said he was going to sue us, that we made his daughter late for school and if she didn't do well on her test it was our fault. One school administrator was on the sidewalk near me and told a couple of kids they didn't have to take the info or they could throw it away. (That would make most kids want it and read it.)
 
On the front side where Danny was, a Marine talked to him and said he was a Christian and a street preacher. He wanted to know all about our ministry and what we do. Vinny gave him his card. There were two police officers on that side that were very polite, took tracts, wanted to know more about what we do. A man that lived in the house on the corner near Danny told him we were right for being there.    
 
Please join us as we reach out to those who find themselves where they should not be. Four babies have been saved so far this month. We will be in Bridgeport and New Haven tomorrow, next week Bridgeport schedule  is Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday. We are there at 8 AM - 10 AM at 3787 Main St. Bpt. We will be there until the killing stops.

God Went Back to School Today- Bassick High School, Bridgeport, CT
 
God is just so awesome to us, we had such favor with the students, we gave out over 1,000 pieces of Christian literature to hundreds of students (including Muslims). We gave out OSA/Elijah Ministry  tracts,  Mark Cahill booklets, Ray Comfort tracts, The Gospel of John, Love Matters Newspapers, booklets on STD's and Abstinence. The kids were so receptive and polite, and most of them said "God bless you too!" after I blessed them.  
We had about 13 saints that came out to hold signs and pass out literature. (Carmen, Susan, Hector, Jennie, Tom, Nancy, Daniel, Brenda, Brodie, Vinny, Gloria, Danny and Marilyn) An administrator at the school told Danny that we "needed to go home!". Danny told her "no, we needed to be there on the public sidewalk to give the students information they would not receive in school."She continued on her cell phone to call the police and he was very polite when he came and told us there was a complaint of us "harassing the students". He said he knows we follow the rules from Main Street (where the abortion mill is). He stayed there the rest of the time and saw we were not breaking the law.  
"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them ." Ephesians 5:11    
 
A middle aged mother walking on the sidewalk asked Danny if she could talk to him. She was very upset. She said her daughter went and had an abortion without her knowing about it. Danny told her no parental consent is required in Connecticut. She said she could not believe her daughter could do that and killed her grandchild! She didn't even know her daughter was sexually active. An effort was made earlier this week to bring out the abortion debate on the House floor with parental notification for minors seeking an abortion. TR's efforts fell short and again unsuccessful. Many of us don't like these bills because it is also saying the mom can kill the baby if her parents give permission. We are not for that because we do not want the baby killed period! I know some believe it will save some babies if the parents know. But that is incrementalism and God tells us in His word not to compromise, "Not one hoof!" in Exodus 10:26 TR is also going to try to add an amendment for "Personhood"  pray that he will get that done. Nothing is impossible with God. Personhood allows for no compromises.  
"The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
 
Another man stopped his car and told Danny the picture of Malachi was "disgusting". Danny told him we thinks its disgusting too, that is why we want it to stop. Two girls told Vinny after viewing his sign that they never saw what an aborted baby looks like but they promised they would never ever get an abortion and do that to their child. 
On my side of the school a bus stopped and the bus driver and another lady wanted all the literature we were passing out. A car with a mom and dad stopped to talk to me too. They all thought is was wonderful that we were there. I could only give them two things because we ran out of everything.  They agreed we need to reach the youth before they go to the abortion mill. We hope to do another high school soon.
 
"There are unsung heroes that spend long hours every day or week trying to save little boys and girls from death. Their names may not appear in newspapers or on TV shows, but they are there offering help and love to moms and dads going into abortion mills across the world.  Over so many years I have had the privilege to meet hundreds of thousands of these saints. They are there in all kinds of weather, just to save a baby's life. I THANK GOD FOR EVERYONE OF THEM" Pastor Ed Martin, Jacksonville, FL 
Here Vinny and Danny witnessing to a young man at the bust stop. Dionte (on the right) is one of the saved babies from years ago at the mill on Middle Street. I believe he is now 14 years old and a fine young man. Carmen brought him shopping for some clothes for his birthday the other day and here he is at Carmen's house with her dog Capone.  Praise the Lord for every life saved!  God has a plan for every life, He does not make mistakes, each life is so precious and valuable!
"I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing,: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed (children) may live." Deuteronomy 30:19   
 
Please join us at Summit on 3787 Main St. this Saturday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday 8 AM- 10 AM as we reach out to those who find themselves where they should not be! We will be there until the killing stops! If not us, then who? If not there, then where? If not now, then when? Others from our group will be at Planned Parenthood on 345 Whitney Ave New Haven from  8 AM  - 10 AM on Saturday too. Pray that lives and souls will be saved for the glory of God!

REMINDER: GOD IS GOING BACK TO SCHOOL, Bridgeport, FRIDAY JUNE 3, 7 AM - 8 AM
If you are willing to come out to save lives and souls for Jesus we will be meeting at a Bridgeport High School by 7 AM Friday morning to pass out signs and literature.
Please email me if you want to come out with us. I will give you all the info. After this most of the saints are going to the mill on 3787 Main St to save the babies and their moms.
Here is a picture of Arnaz with Nancy, Jennie and Pastor Hector. Some of the moms that have changed their minds attend Lighthouse Fellowship Church in Bridgeport. It was Arnaz's 4th birthday Sunday so God blessed him with a cake and some presents. Thank you Jesus for your loving kindness is new every morning! Praise Him. Please pray for these families to be discipled and turn their lives over to our Lord.  

Jesus said to the crowds, "If you trust me, you are really trusting God who sent me. For when you see me, you are seeing the one who sent me. I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the darkness. If anyone hears me and doesn't obey me, I am not his judge --for I have come to save the world and not judge it. But all who reject me and my message will be judged at the day of judgement by the truth I have spoken. I don't speak on my own authority. The Father who sent me gave me His own instructions to what I should say. And I know his instructions lead to eternal life; so I say whatever the Father tells me to say! John 12:44-50

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
OSA leaders went to Wyoming to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ! It was windy and cold there but there were majestic mountain views. Thank God it hardly rained in spite of the forecast!
 
We went to the high school in the mornings at 6:30 AM. Then to the hospital and main street in town where the abortionist's office is for the rest of the day until 5 PM. We passed out loads of literature, held signs and had many conversations with the town people in Jackson Hole. It is a ski resort western-type frontier town. We saw buffalo, moose and elk. It was very different. The people there seemed very far from God. Dick Cheney, Harrison Ford, and Sylvester Stallone live there. Rich people move there to get away from everyone. We never had so many gestures thrown at us or so many cars trying to hit us, but God protected us through it all.
Abortionist Bret Blue left town when we were there so no babies were killed! PTL! I pray that the moms that were going to abort will change their minds!   
 
A "pro-choice" young lady came to church Friday night! Please pray for her salvation. Also, pray for Pastor John and Gloria King, from Mountain View Baptist, the only church that welcomed us. Pray that they would pick up the baton and run with it until the only abortion facility in Wyoming stops killing babies!

OSA-CT STREET REPORT (5-12-2011)
Calling all Troops!
 
Yesterday, Wednesday, May 11, 2011 had to be one of the worst days lately for us out on the streets in Bridgeport! There were so many young moms going in for abortions we could not keep up with them. They were coming from all directions. The lot was full and they were parking next door. I took one mom to Hopeline and Carmen met another mom there later on. Thirty women went in while we were there between 8 AM- 10:30 AM. Two turned-away and one changed her mind. It was truly a local holocaust. Just picture 27 dead babies!
This would be equal an entire classroom of little boys and little girls slaughtered.
 
We were sickened and shaken to see this transpiring right before our very eyes in our community! Fourteen pro-lifers came out during the course of the morning but we need more. We need prayer intercession while the sidewalk counselors are talking to the moms and we need a physical public display of signs and literature distribution to show the wickedness of baby killing. The killing center is open to kill more children tomorrow, Friday May 13, at 8 AM. Please come out and take a stand. If you were being led to slaughter wouldn't you want somebody to try to save your life? Saturday May 14, we will be in New Haven at Planned Parenthood, 345 Whitney Ave. at 8 AM.
 
Next week the abortionist, Susan Richman is supposed to be back so the Summit "death camp" on 3787 Main Street will be back to their regular three day schedule (Tues. Fri. and Sat.). Carmen and I will be away in Wyoming to try to make Wyoming the first abortion free state. There is only one abortion mill operating in the whole state. Please pray for us and cover our posts while we are gone.  For more info on "OPERATION FIRST ABORTION FREE STATE" go to Pastor Mark Hollick's website http://www.spiritonecc.org/
 
Susan Richman, the abortionist in Bridgeport and the Planned Parenthood in New Haven both have lawsuits against them for medical malpractice. Below is a picture of Brenda talking to a lady that stopped to argue with us about what we do. She was forced to have an abortion by her mom at the age of thirteen and has not gotten over it. She thought we condemn the girls going in, Carmen tried to explain what we really do and prayed with her. She is hurting badly deep inside. In the other picture, we are talking to Charlie, a Wesleyan "deathscort" that came to talk to us privately two times about abortion for a report he had to write. He is an atheist and obviously has wrong perception and ideology. I gave him the Mark Cahill book, "One Hearbeat Away" Please pray he comes to know the truth.
We have two needs right now for these moms that changed their minds and choose life for their babies:
 
#1.) One of the moms that changed her mind needs to find a room to rent or a place to live with a family in Bridgeport.  Kiana is African American, 24, a hard worker and a sweet spirit. She works at Macy's department store at the Trumbull Mall. She works 34 hours a week and takes the bus. She is 19 weeks pregnant and is due October 1st. She is presently in a homeless shelter. Please send this around to your local email lists and ask around at your churches. She is a good candidate for discipleship. She wants to go to church. Please pray and think about it. Its only temporary until she gets into Section 8 or Title 19 housing; she is on their waiting lists.
 
#2.) Nicky is due to have her baby in June. There will be a baby shower for her next Saturday May 21st. Carmen and I are leaving Tuesday May 17th. So any baby items you have for her shower please give to me tomorrow or bring to my house by Monday. She needs everything. Thank you! 

"Suppose a sister (or brother) is without clothes, shelter and daily food. If one of you says "Go, I wish you well, keep warm and well fed, " but does nothing about her (or his) physical needs, what good is it?" James 2:15, 16

OSA-CT STREET REPORT

"To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world."

April 2011- Summit Center in Bridgeport was open 11 days (1 day was a pre-op day) with an average of 15 prolifers there each day.

 Abortions- there were 73 abortions averaging 7 a day.

Turn-aways- 14 clients left quickly but we don't know why.

Babies saved- 9 babies saved that we know about.

Salvation - one salvation on 4/16 at the shelter Bible study (led by Jeff).

 

Planned Parenthood in New Haven. On the 3 Saturdays in April that I have a record: there was an average of 10 pro-lifers each day, 15 abortions each Saturday. One baby was saved on a Saturday and 4 babies saved a Friday reported by Kerrie.

This young lady was waiting for the bus and told us she needed help with formula so we gave her the resource information she needed. Saturday a Wesleyan student, Charlie, who has been there as a "deathscort" came to interview us for a report he was doing on abortion. I asked him if he was going to talk to us when he came back to "escort" and he said he was graduating so wouldn't be there anymore.Ron Martin and Vinny Bosco were giving him "heaven" and telling the truth about what abortion really is. I was too busy talking to the moms going in so I just gave him a bunch of literature to take with him to read. We had an awesome day of baby saving on Saturday! Four babies were saved that we know of! PTL! The first mom was Hispanic so I had Melinda interpreting for me to them until Carmen came. The next couple that changed their mind left about 10 AM and they were Hispanic too. I gave them the resource list and told them to call Carmen if they needed someone who spoke Spanish. The  next couple went in and out real fast and the young mother was crying and said she could not do it and the last one was another couple that were very sincere and took all the info! It was all God. This is a group effort, some pray, some plant seeds, some water, some reap the harvest..........but in the end, we can do nothing without the help of Jesus!

 

"Yes, God will give you much so that you  can give away much, and when we take your gifts to those who need them they will break out into thanksgiving and praise to God for your help. So two good things happen as a result of your gifts -- those in need are helped, and they overflow with thanks to God. Those you help will be glad not only because of your generous gifts to themselves and to others, but they will praise God for this proof that your deeds are as good as your doctrine. And they will pray for you with deep fervor and feeling because of the wonderful grace of God shown through you."  2 Corinthians 9:11-14

 

Here's a little report from Tom about the shelter ministry on Saturday night in Bridgeport: Anthony Barrios provided food from his work place, which was delicious and the people enjoyed it very much. Tanika Williams (Lighthouse Fellowship Church) worked with the kids (about 5) and showed them a short movie. I led a short Bible devotional in the TV room. There were about 6 women and 1 man in attendance. All understood English. We opened with Psalm 139 and discussed how God knows all and we cannot hide anything from Him. We talked about God’s plan for our lives (Jer. 29:11) and what life’s purpose is. Also we talked about how God promises to be with us in difficult times (Isaiah 43), when we receive Christ into our lives. I invited people to receive Christ, if they had not done that. The couple had come from a church in Bridgeport, where the pastor recently left. They seemed very discouraged. We prayed for them. Two of the ladies expressed a desire to rededicate their lives to Christ. Three ladies and their children came to our church the following day. One of the ladies (Angie) who wanted to rededicate her life to Christ came forward during the invitation (at church) and prayed with Sister Jennie and Sister Norma to rededicate her life to Christ.

If you would like to help with the shelter ministry by making food, helping with the kids or the teaching, contact Tom ([email protected]) or Brenda ( [email protected])

We sponsor it every other Saturday night.

Here is Brenda, Carmen and Stan taking to moms going in.

Wendee was able to come out to Bridgeport and was able to give out 70 pieces of pro-life gospel across the street as cars wait for the red light to change. PTL!  

 One of the moms, Nicky, is due in June so we will be collecting items for her baby shower in May. She is having a boy and she needs everything. We need all the gifts by Saturday, May 14th, please. Thank you again for your help, for we cannot do this alone. Keep Nicky in prayer please, she has gone to church with Carmen a couple of times.  Pray for her salvation.     

 

There was a save in New Haven on Saturday April 16. The saints waved them over from the parking lot. They said they were already an hour late so it seemed they may have been struggling with the decision.  Pam got to witness to Crystal with her testimony. Brenda and Wendee were there also. She said she wanted an abortion because she was going to school and the father has two kids and she has one. They didn't need any financial help but Wendee offered to babysit for her while she continued in school during her pregnancy. She was moved by the baby model and could hardly look at the aborted baby pictures. They took all the literature and the Eclipse of Reason DVD.  They stayed in the car awhile and told prolifers they changed their minds on the other side of the driveway.   

  

Please join us tomorrow in Bridgeport and Saturday in New Haven. If not us, then who? If not now, then when? If not here, then where? We are the Body of Christ. Jesus is our Head. We are His hands, His feet, His mouthpiece, as we reach out to the lost and needy who find themselves where they should not be! We will be there until the killing stops!

OSA-CT Ministry Report

Miss Taraji was born into the world on Thursday night 11:58 PM April 14th.

She weighed in at 8 pounds 1 ounce and is 21 inches long.

She is a beautiful little girl made in the image of God.

She is a gift to us from our Lord and we are blessed because of her.

Welcome Miss Taraji

Colbi arranged the beautiful flowers and

we went to vist her at Yale Hospital in New Haven.

My goddaughter Hannah came with us to visit the new arrival.

 

We met Sharelle many months ago at Planned Parenthood and a lot of prayer, sweat and tears went into convincing her to keep her baby, especially from Colbi who picked her up many times to go to church and take her shopping and just trying to encourage her. Colbi was so excited to hold this precious new baby. Sharelle has two other beautiful little girls around one and a half and three years old. The babies dad is a really good guy. Please keep this family in your prayers to learn the ways of our Lord so they will be steadfast in Him.

"Proclaim the message and, welcome or  unwelcome, insist on it. Refute falsehood, correct error, call to obedience -- but do all with patience and with the intention of teaching. " 2 Timothy 4:1-2 

 

Tonight three ladies, Carmen, Britney, and Sharice were scheduled to go to Bible fellowship at the Lighthouse Church gathering with Nancy and Jennie. Also Nicky went to Carmen's church last Sunday. Please pray for their salvation. Nicky is due to have her baby in June. She is having a boy and we will be collecting gifts for her shower on May 21st.

 

This past Saturday a couple was walking up near the pizza restaurant and I started to talk to them about keeping their baby. I called over to Carmen to bring the collage and ambulance photo. This couple have two small children home (2 yrs old and 10 months old) and the dad was really determined to get the abortion. We told the mom what God says about it and how we could help her. They were talking in French so we couldn't understand everything but they ended up leaving. We exchanged phone numbers and gave them a resource list and a baby gift bag. Please pray for them.

 

I want to encourage all of you to keep gospel tracts with you where ever you go. I keep Muslim tracts too, because I have a heart for them, especially the women. On Monday when I was leaving Costco I saw a Muslim lady going in the entrance. So I turned around and went back in the store. I asked her if she was Muslim and she said yes. I gave her the Magdeline DVD and I showed her the gospel literature I had in Arabic. She said her neighbors read Arabic and she would give them the literature and DVD's. I was so excited, you would have thought I hit the jack pot. Witnessing for Jesus is never boring.

 

Please join us. This week its Thursday and Saturday morning in Bridgeport. We are there between 8 am - 10 am. Some go to Planned Parenthood in New Haven on Saturday mornings too. Just show up and see what God will do! If not us, then who? If not there, then where? If not now, then when?

The Summit Women's Center's baby killing business is slowing down. The numbers are low and they are scattering every which way trying to get more business. They have changed their hours and opened on Saturdays but their business is cursed and we are believing GOD to close it down soon. Please pray for this.
 
Chris wrote on the blog that Friday, April 1st, the abortionist had left and only the center workers were present, he was praying outside with others for their souls and witnessing the rush hour traffic on Main Street, Bridgeport.  A young man, maybe in his late twenties, walked by with his three year old son. He stopped and thanked the pro-life prayer warriors. He said they helped save his son's life. Pro-life counselors were there when the boy's mother was going in for an abortion, and they gave her hope in what had seemed to be a hopeless situation. They drove her to a crisis pregnancy center and she received help and information on how to keep her baby! The father was very proud of his handsome son and it nearly broke my heart with joy to see them walking together. How precious life is! How glorious are the works of the Lord!  
 
This Tuesday there were only four clients and they were doing medical abortions only. Medical abortions are performed by giving drugs to moms up to seven weeks after conception to end the life of the baby in the womb. These drugs are known as RU-486.
 
On Friday,they opened late after nine. Five women went in and this was supposedly for pre-op. Carmen talked to one mom that was undecided because she had twins at home. Carmen gave her a resource list of all the help available and a DVD of Eclipse of Reason.

This past Saturday about 35 people came out. Our church, Calvary Life, came to save lives and souls for Jesus. PJ and Kofi , youth and young adult leaders came with some of the youth. They held signs and gave out gospel tracts. They were living epistles for our Lord. The center opened late after 10 AM. A lady came to me on the street and asked if I had a Spanish Bible, I said yes. I just happened to have one in my car. She was so blessed to receive it. Praise God.  When I was standing near Stan Scott a car stopped across the street at the light and a young lady called out the window to him. She said "you helped me save my baby years ago and now she is 17!" She was smiling and very happy.
 
 
Peter and Margie Vescovi                                                                    Joe & Lena Chabot
 
They were doing surgical abortions at 1 PM. Six women went in, two turned away and one changed her mind before I left at 12:15 PM. Around noon two young ladies parked in the lot and I called them over to the fence to talk to Margie and me. I showed them the ambulance picture of the woman taken out and then I showed the young mom the baby collage and she started to cry. This is a collage I made a  while ago of the moms that changed their minds with their babies. I gave her my own testimony of being a young mother and I asked if we could pray with her. She said yes. We exchanged phone numbers and I gave her a resource list, gospel literature and a little gift bag. She said she knew it wasn't the right thing to do and went into the clinic to get her money back. She came out with an ultrasound picture; smiling ear to ear. Please pray for her, her name is Noor. It was a divine appointment for Margie to be there to see how we minister to the women. She was so happy to experience the encounter so when I left she would be able to reach out to them. She did a good job and at giving out literature and resource lists. PTL!  Cori and Aaron said a mom walking by with a baby told them she had an abortion once and regretted it. Cori gave her my number for info about resources available. This was Aaron's first time out and he really liked ministering and witnessing to the people on the streets. He wants to come back. Our hope is that many of the first timers will return. The more people and prayers on site equals more lives saved.

On Sunday, Danny and I were blessed to go to Zoe Rose Gordon's dedication at Bridgeport Bible Fellowship Church. We met Zoe's mom, Fara,  years ago on the streets and she has become our "poster mom" for prolife ministry. We hope all young moms would turn out like Fara. We discipled Fara and brought her to church, she later married Corey and asked me to be her matron of honor. I am also her daughter Hannah's (12 yrs old) godmother. We are close. Fara calls me her "second mom".  I am so blessed to be a part of their lives.  Zoe is their 7th child. Fara is the best mom and her children are awesome. They all love the lord and are so polite and respectful. God is just so good. Saturday I plan to take Hannah out to the streets with us.
 
  Pastor Turner asked me to speak about our ministry at the church yesterday.  I was able to encourage the folks to come out to the streets and take a public stand against baby killing in our community. One of Farah's friends that was there came and talked to us after and told Fara and I how she thanks God that we helped persuade her not to abort her son, who is now 14 years old. She said she is going to bring him to see me so I can meet him.  PTL!    
 
Please join us every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday mornings 8 AM and on at Summit, 3787 Main St Bridgeport. If not us, then who? If not now? then when? If not here, then where? We are the Body of Christ, Jesus is our head. We are his voice piece on the earth.  We are his hands and his feet that bring the Good News of the Gospel to the lost and the needy. Just show up and see what God will do!

March 2011 Stats- Bridgeport: 92 babies were killed, 10 babies were saved.
New Haven- Saturdays: 63 babies killed.
 
 God Said, "I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born, I set you apart and appointed you as my spokesman to the world." Jeremiah 1:5
 
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matthew 28:19  
 
 
Here is Britney with her new son Jaquin Eugene. He is one of the saved babies. Today they were picked up at home and brought to  Lighthouse Community Church in Bridgeport for their first visit there. It went very well, Jaquin's big brother, Arnez, came too! He went to children's church and had fun learning about the resurrection with my nephew Daniel. Praise the Lord! Our number one focus in this ministry is to get people saved and discipled ! 
 
Here's a report from Carmen for Saturday: April 2: 
 
 We had two babies saved today and one turn away! One of the mom's was convicted by the signs and said she was
Catholic and knew that it was wrong for bringing her daughter to the mill. She is keeping her baby and took
all of our literature and help. The woman that turned away was french and didn't speak English.
She called her aunt from her cell-phone so I could explain in English to her aunt what I was trying to convey
to her about the mill and the help we had for her sister. She took all the information and a DVD so she can watch it at home.
Her sister came back out and didn't have the abortion. Her name was Nina. We need to pray for her and the two moms that changed their minds.
I also had a mom that changed her mind 10 yrs. ago with her daughter Hillary that stopped by the clinic to visit with me.  She is coming
back next Saturday to pray with her other two daughters. She attends St George Church in Bpt. It made my day, God is soooo good!!
To God be the Glory for all that He continues to do!!
In Christ for Life, carmen 
 
Yesterday, Brenda, Kelly, Colbi and I went to Sharelle's baby shower in New Haven. Sharelle changed her mind months ago. Colbi and I were at Planned Parenthood early that day and were able to stop Sharelle and talk to her. She left without having the abortion but was undecided for a long time, Colbi took her to church at Haven of Rest many times with her two little girls and her boyfriend too. Kelly and Colbi took her to Carmen's to watch Eclipse of Reason one day also. All of their efforts worked out for good, she is due to have a little girl any day now. Please keep Sharelle and her family in your prayers! We were able to give out some gospel tracts and Mark Cahill books to some of her friends and some neighbors. We are also going to be friends on Facebook with some of her cousins. One of them told Brenda that she went to Planned Parenthood and had an abortion. 
 
Thursday night we were able to speak to the Calvary Life youth group about abortion. We showed the "Hard Truth", some never imagined how horrible abortion really is. Carmen and I talked about our ministry. Then Colbi showed the slide show she made of OSA-CT 
Kelly and Colbi shared a lot about being in the ministry and on the streets since they were babies. They told many stories of things learned and how they are a light for Jesus with their peers and on the streets.Colbi said a mom changed her mind at PP after an ultrasound showed she was having twins. They told personal stories of friends and how they were affected by abortion. They encouraged the teens to stand against the evil of abortion. Some of them are coming out this Saturday to Bridgeport with their youth leaders. PTL! 
 
 
It is good to have the Hopeline CPC right down the street. On March 15, Carmen was able to bring a young lady there for an ultrasound. This past Tuesday, March 29, Pam and Ron were on site praying and witnessing. Pam was able to give a couple our business card and persuaded them not to get an ultra-sound in the mill. They called and met me and Danny and we brought them over to Hopeline.  PTL! She said she was going to spread the news that the crisis pregnancy center was there for help.
 
Please come join us every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday as we reach out to those who find themselves where they should not be. It is a harvest field where we are. We get to proclaim the gospel to moms going into the killing center. We also get to witness to the clients from the methadone clinic a few buildings down. All the people that wait for the bus are offered gospel tracts, books and bibles. Sometimes they even talk to the people going into the clinic and tell them how bad abortion is. One Hispanic man was talking through the fence in Spanish trying to persuade a couple not to abort. They are growing and learning as they hear and see what we do and say. God is just so awesome how He sets things up!

Welcome to Jacquin! Born 3/27/11, 8 lbs, 1 oz.
 
We were blessed to go visit Brittany yesterday at St Vincent's Hospital to see her new baby boy, Jacquin. Mom and baby are doing well. He is so adorable, I got to give him his first bottle and visit with the family. Her mom, dad, sister and nephew were there. The dad was teasing me saying "so your the one responsible for this!" then laughing he added, "I'm glad someone was there to talk to her". Everyone was thankful and rejoicing for this new life.
 
     
 
I want to thank the people that are helping with clothes for Layla. We brought three gift bags to them yesterday after we left the hospital. Her grandmother is so grateful to all of you! I told Layla that the gifts are from Jesus, that he tells the people to buy her things she needs. I never saw a kid get so excited over underwear! She was looking at each one of them and was so excited. Her Gram said she only had three pairs, now she has two new packs! We are going to take her shopping for the other things she needs.
 
Two babies were saved last week in Bridgeport! One on Friday and one on Saturday. On Friday Carmen and Brenda talked to a girl and convinced her  to go into the center to get her friend out and she did! Thank you Jesus! God does above and beyond what we can hope or imagine. Then Saturday a young woman that went in came out and over to talk to us. We gave her a resource list and she was crying and told us she changed her mind. She has a soft sweet spirit. Please keep both of these moms in your prayers, Sue and Lillian. We pray that they have the peace of God that surpasses all understanding and that they would draw close to the Lord, that God would knit their babies perfectly together and supply their every need according to His riches and glory.
 
One of the moms that went into the mill a long time ago told me that when she heard Stan's voice say to her "Don't kill your baby!" it hit a chord in her and she actually pictured herself carrying her baby in her arms and taking it into the clinic to have it killed. After that she could not do it! Now when she sees her daughter (who is 17) and thinks about it she gets all choked up thinking she could have killed her child.
 
Vinny and Ron had a good discussion with the "deathscorts" from Wesleyan University. They compared the abortion holocaust to slavery. Just because something is legal doesn't make it right. After a while they had nothing to say to defend the killing of innocent children. 
 
Please join us every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday as we reach out to those who find themselves where they should not be. We will be there until the killing stops. We are the Body of Christ. He is our head. We are his hands, his feet, his mouthpiece. If not us, then who? If not now, then when? If not here, then were? Just show up and see what God will do! It's awesome to co-labor with the Lord of Lords and King of Kings.

OSA-CT, Bridgeport
 
 
Brittany and Marilyn
This is Brittany (25), one of the mom's that changed her mind a while ago. She is due to have her second son on April 1st. Her mom gave her a baby shower and she still needed a carseat, a stroller and a tub set. The ministry provided them, some diapers and layette items. Please keep Brittany up in prayer. She wants to start going to church so we are hooking her up with Nancy and the Lighthouse Church in Bridgeport. She will need a job after she has the baby. She just got a car. If you know of any local job openings for her please let us know. THANK YOU! 
 
We have been blessed to have some new people coming out! Here you see " a few good men" praying. The more people that come out and the more prayers that go forth result in more babies saved and abortuaries closed. When Pastor Ron came out he was able to witness to a young man waiting for the bus. The conversation ended with this young man praying in repentance to make Jesus his Lord and Savior! PTL! Russ Barnes was able to give out 30 New Testaments to people walking by on the streets and those waiting for the bus. He said the people there we very receptive! Thank you Jesus for preparing hearts for us to minister to.  
 
On Friday, the first car was leaving and Danny asked them if they had dropped someone off? The young lady said she dropped off her mom. Danny pleaded with her to go back, and that the baby was her brother or sister. She ignored his comments and took off out of the driveway. What have we come to in America? We have kids taking their parents to kill their babies, we have parents taking their kids to kill their babies. Oh God, please have mercy on us and help us to turn our nation back to you!
 
Carmen talking to a young lady.
 
Stan Scott told us that the other day he went to Office Max to make copies of a " Birth Control" brochure. He needed help so he asked the clerk (24). She helped him and then asked if she could read the brochure. She read the part about Depo-Provera, which is an injection you get every three months. It has the same three mechanisms as the Pill, two contraceptive and one is abortion causing. Depo-Provara causes abortions approximately 46% of the time.  Other side effects are breast cancer, mood swings, and blood pressure problems. The woman told Stan that it messed up her whole cycle and she has not been normal since Planned Parenthood gave it to her. Now she knows why.
 
Paul, Stan, Brenda, Carmen
 
The report that Nancy wrote was published on the www.ameribornenews.com. We need to get the message out that babies are being killed in our communities and that Christians need to come out and take a public stand! Its good to pray at home but the public needs to see us there to know that something is wrong! We cannot peacefully coexist with baby killing in our cities! We must all come out and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and let everyone know what God's word commands us to do. Remember: "The gates of Hell cannot prevail against His Church!" So when babies are drawn to slaughter we have to plead with their moms not to kill them. We must be there until the killing stops!
 
When Len and Barbara were there they said at least three people approached them while they were praying. Two said that conversations with other pro-lifers on different days had changed their thoughts on life and abortion. The third person was convicted after talking to them and walked away with a pro-life point of view! PTL! Len said them being there alerted those walking or driving by to what was happening in that nondescript building. It pricked their heartstrings as it should. Their 12-year old daughter held a sign for two hours at the curb that said "Honk if you are pro-life". Many honks and smiles came during that time. Her favorite was a window cleaner who came up for a chat and more of an understanding of what was going on there. As he walked away he looked at the girl's sign and said "Honk, Honk". God is using faithful people to open eyes in our community!    
 
Brenda,Jeff and Brodie went to the homeless shelter Saturday night to bring them dinner and do a Bible study with them. This is something our ministry sponsors every other Saturday night. If you would like to go or make some food, please contact Brenda at [email protected]. We started this ministry when we brought one of the moms there that changed her mind and needed a place to stay. One of the young ladies there, Michelle, has lyme disease. She is asking lots of questions about God. She was into tarot cards but has burned them because she realized they were wrong. She said her stiff neck went away since she got rid of the tarot cards. Brenda invited her to her home for bible study. Please pray for Michelle.
 
Join us out on the streets as we reach out to moms who find themselves where they should not be. If not now? then when? If not us, then who? If not there, then where? Just show up and see what God will do!

February Street Report 2011

Operation Save America - CT
 
Bridgeport, February 2011 Count: 69 babies were killed,
11 babies were saved
 
New Haven, February 2011 Count: Saturdays - 74 babies killed
"Take no part in the worthless pleasures of evil and darkness, but instead rebuke and expose them. It would be shameful even to mention here those pleasures of darkness which the ungodly do. But when you expose them, the light shines in upon their sin and shows it up, and when they see how wrong they really are, some of them may even become children of the light! That is why God says in the Scriptures, 'Awake, O sleeper, and rise up from the dead; and Christ shall give you light.' " Ephesians 5:11-14   
 
 
Two babies were saved early Saturday in Bridgeport because of the presence of God and the efforts of the sidewalk counselors and prayer warriors.
 
 
Yesterday was the opening rally for The 40 Days for Life in Bridgeport!  This is a very special time of prayer and fasting. Our brothers and sisters in Waco, Texas (the Thomas's), Granite City, lllinois (the Michaels) and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (the Parentes') are all participating in nationwide effort. Pastor Ed Martin of Jacksonville, Florida who came here years ago for our Jericho March, has run five 40 DAYS FOR LIFE at his abortion mill and thousands have come out to join him.
 
"And Jesus said unto them, "This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting." Mark 9:29
 
 

 
 
Since the 40 DAYS FOR LIFE , Pastor Ed has had a minimum of five people with him and sometimes up to 50! There has been approximately 3,000 less abortions in the state!  It has had a tremendous impact on the city and the surrounding areas. Pastor Ed said "In my thirty years outside the death camps, the 40 Days for Life has been the greatest success since the old time rescue days! " Praise the Lord, this is so exciting!
 
 
 
God said: "They have built the pagan shrines in the valley where they sacrifice their little sons and daughters, I have never commanded such a horrible deed: it never even crossed my mind." Jeremiah 7:31     
 
 
 
There was a wonderful service at the Catholic Life Center on Jewitt Avenue. We were blessed with inspiring and hopeful words from Fr Sam Kachuba, Pastor Hector Muniz (Lighthouse Church), Fr Greg Markey (St Mary's Church), Pastor Pedro Vazquez (Gospel Light Church) and Sister Mary Concepta ( The Sisters of Life). This was followed by a silent prayer procession to the Summit Abortuary on 3787 Main Street with a police escort. 

About 150 people joined us on the streets and we all read God's word (Psalm 103) together. We blessed and consecrated the ground there, led by Fr Kachuba. We claimed this ground as holy ground and closed with a hymn of praise! We all went back to the center for a time of fellowship and refreshment. The whole event was very well organized. Thank you to everyone that had a part in making this happen!  We are believing God to do mighty things during this Lenten season. The 40 Days for Life starts this Ash Wednesday, March 9th and goes up to Palm Sunday! By Easter we will be rejoicing  of all the things our Lord has done!
 
 Please don't wait for the next person to do this, we all need to do our part.  We still have nine and a half days open: MARCH: 22, 23, 29, 30, and 12-6pm on 31st   APRIL: 5, 7, 11, 12, 14. We need each one of you reading this to do your part.  Please call Christine Murphy at 203-438-4866 to take a day for your church or your group.  If you just need a one or two-hour time slot, call me, Marilyn Carroll 203-878-3126. Thank you, God bless you.  
 
"You are a poor specimen if you can't stand the pressure of adversity. Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death: don't stand back and let them die. Don't try to disclaim responsibility by saying you didn't know about it. For God, who knows all hearts, knows yours, and He knows you knew! And He will reward everyone according to his deeds." Proverbs 24:10-12   
 
Please join us. If not now, then when? If not here, then where? If not us, then who?

Five babies saved in Bridgeport today! 2/12/11 Saturday
 
We had another awesome day today in Bridgeport! 5 babies were saved! When we left we knew of 4 that changed their minds and just a little while ago Stan Scott called and said another mom (white) came out and said she changed her mind and wanted all the information for help. PTL!  Thank you Jesus!
 
One baby was from a Spanish couple, three were white and one was oriental.
Thirteen moms came. Five changed their minds! One left, we don't know why. Seven babies were left to die (six were black). Though their little bodies are dead, God will bring life to them! Another statistic for black genocide (look up Maafa 21 on http://www.youtube/).    
 
"Can wicked leaders who use the law to do unlawful things claim that God is on their side?
They join forces to take the lives of righteous people.
They condemn innocent people to death.
But the Lord is my fortress;
My God is a mighty rock where I can hide.
He has turned their own wickedness against them.
He will destroy them because of their sins.
The Lord our God will destroy them."
Psalm 94:22-23 
 
This is a mom that came with a picture of her child to show us that one of the signs with the live baby and the dead baby helped to change her mind and her baby is now six month old. Nancy, Brenda, Daniel and Amber are rejoicing with her! 
 
I sent out 67 information packs yesterday for the 40 Days for Life. There is one correction I need to make. We would like each church or group to commit to one day for Lent. To commit to one day you need 12 people to volunteer (not 24). The days are from 7 AM- 7 PM. The days are broken into 2 hour sections. At least two people per time slot. For more info go to www.40daysforlife.com/bridgeport Christine Murphy is the contact: 302-438-4866. If you want me to send you a packet, let me know. Thank you! We are believing God to use this powerful prayer presence to shut down the Summit Abortuary! We covet your prayers.   
 Note: You can read more on the "40 Days for Life" under SPREAD THE WORD on the OSA CT menu
 
 
This is Kelly and Brenda with one of the moms that changed her mind in New Haven. She came to Kelly and Carmen's church the next day and went up to the altar call to receive Jesus as her Lord and Savior! Now what's better than that? He who saves souls is wise! That makes 388 salvations that we know about! Thank you Jesus! You are an awesome Father!
 
Monday, Feb. 14th at 12 PM- 1 PM, there will be a prayer vigil at Planned Parenthood, 345 Whitney Ave. New Haven. This is a nationwide effort of 40 Days for Life all around the country to help expose and defund Planned Parenthood. It is being called a Vigil for Victims.  http://www.ExposePlannedParenthood.com/vigil
 
"Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being imperfect; and in Thy book all my members were written.." Psalm 139:16
 
Please join us every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday at 3787 Main St Bridgeport and 345 Whitney Ave in New Haven, both places we are there from  8 AM-10 AM. If not us, then who? If not now then when? If not here, then where? We are the Body of Christ, Jesus is the Head and we are His hands, His feet, His mouthpiece here on the Earth. Just show up and see the amazing things He will do. It is an honor to serve our Lord and King.

OSA National Leaders Meeting, Charlotte NC, Feb. 3-6, 2011
We had a wonderful time of ministry and encouragement!
 
THURSDAY: Saints from all over our nation gathered at Pastor Faw's Truth Temple in Kannapolis.The first night we were there Pastor Flip taught from Exodus chapters 1-10 about Pharaoh and not compromising. Pastor Mike Warren talked about conservatism being pretend salt. Conservatism is not enough. We need the power of God within us to stand!
 
A great example to us is Marine Sargeant John Basilone. He was head of a machine gun platoon when the Japanese wanted to take back Guadalcanal during WWII. He had the opportunity to stay out of the war but didn't and gave his life for our country in Iwo Jima. He was decorated with the "medal of honor". That's the same medal we want to get from Jesus on Judgement Day when our Lord says to us "well done good and faithful servant!"  
 
We also read an article on Reformer vs. Radical. A reformer goes about his business in increments while a radical stands firm on God's word and does not waiver. We have to fight the case for the fatherless to win it! Your vote is your currency. 
 
Coach Daubenmire (Pass the Salt Ministries), was one of the most appealing speakers we had. He said he misses the scoreboard from when he coached football. He could always look at the scoreboard and know when he was winning. In our Christian walk we want to know: "what's the score?" The point of our time here on earth is to play the best we can! Do it with all our heart, soul and mind. God chose us first, we didn't chose Him. Do you realize what an honor that is? Jesus said we are to be salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13) . What does salt do? It preserves, seasons, burns, corrodes, prevents rotting, prevents growth of bacteria, and it stings our wounds. Salt also has a healing affect and changes the way everything tastes! Salt raises your blood pressure and lowers the boiling point. It regulates the body and kills slugs and bloodsuckers. It melts cold things. Jesus also said "if you lose your saltiness, you lose your savor!" Salt makes people thirst and hunger.  
 
Satan can sift us like wheat but in Hebrews 10 (Hall of Faith) we learn that with God we can be made perfect (mature). The Lord called us into battle, its our obligation to show up. We can't loose focus, we are God's SWAT team (special forces). Go to your local baby killing center to lift up the Lord. Lives will be saved because God is with us and will never leave us.  
  
FRIDAY: We had breakfast at 6 AM and left at 6:25 AM for the first school outreach at Concord High that started at 7 AM. It was a cold, rainy, dark morning. We got out our signs and our literature out  and were able to give out some valuable information. Some preached God's word to the students going in. Once the bell rang we packed up and went over to AL Brown High School in Kannapolis. We were wet and freezing but we continued to hold signs  and gave out lots of literature. The highlight of that morning was our encounter with an obviously post abortive young woman. She came to us with a friend telling us we should not have "those signs" out here. Ante rebuked her for her language and disrespect. Coach took over after she said "the baby is not alive" and then Colbi spoke to her peer in a sweet graceful manner. By the end of the conversation she was crying. Please pray for her, God knows her name. She was hurting and needed repentance and forgiveness. She would not pray with us, but she heard the message of hope through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
 
Our next destination in the freezing pouring rain was LaTrobe Abortion Mill in Charlotte. We got there about 9 AM were blessed to get the good news from Bridgeport that three babies were saved, PTL!  After that three babies were saved in Charlotte too!  God is so gracious to use us to allow us to co-labor with Him! Its is never boring serving our King! We were blessed to meet Lisa Metzger, a pregnant sidewalk counselor and mother of 9. These are pictures of her and some of her Children.
 
The next stop for us was the Presbyterian Medical Tower where two abortionist practice their OB/GYN businesses. We passed out fliers there and posted them asking people to please "adopt  an abortionist": Harvey Harris or Curtis Flood. Pray for them, recruit others to pray, do public outreaches at the mills or their businesses, write them letters, and alert the public .   
 
Next we went to a mosque on The Plaza to preach the gospel and hold signs. It was still cold and still pouring, by that point we were exhausted and our hands and feet felt frostbit. Men of God (Flip, Rusty, Ken, Ante) preached the Gospel of the Kingdom with love, passion, and the truth. Islam was exposed as false and Jesus and the scriptures as authentic. No man comes to the Father except through Jesus Christ. We believe that God's word will not return void! It goes forth to do what God wants it to accomplish. Rusty told us that some were set free.
 
 
Friday night Cal Zastrow spoke to us about PERSONHOOD. Mississippi will be the major battle ground for 2011. Its on the ballot now so please pray for the people there to vote for it.  A newly elected Iowa state rep drew a line through a pro-life questionnaire and wrote PERSONHOOD ONLY!  There are two bills in the US House and the US Senate, this is a good sign. Personhood in some form is present in all 50 states. Pray for our State Representative TR Rowe. We are asking him to introduce personhood legislation defining the word "person" in the State Constitution as a "human being" at fertilization/moment of conception of biological beginning. North Dakota voted in favor of the bill. Florida is petitioning voters to sign a pro-life amendment. Personhood won in Colorado. We cannot quit until the killing stops! We need to have a long term vision and our responsibility is to represent Christ. There are five states with only 1 abortion mill present. (I think they are Mississippi, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Wyoming,Montana.) We need to target these killing centers. The end of May Pastor Mark Hollick (mailto:[email protected]%29 is planning a trip for us to go to Wyoming! It will be the first surgical abortion free site in America. As best we know they have never had an on-site presence or abortionist outreach. Less than 100 abortions per year are committed in Wyoming. 
 
Chet Gallager said how he loved our "tribe" and was privileged to walk humbly and love justice with us. God is exposing baby killers all over the nation. In 1990, there were 2000 free standing abortion mills and now in 2011 there are only 713. Chet gave us a flyer to make copies for our clinics on Abortion Malpractice Assistance (free of charge to injured victims and their attorneys). The insurance commissioner and Mark Crutcher wrote 95% of the flyer. A mill in Las Vegas had to pay $825,000. after a lawsuit.
 
Jay Rogers from Orlando Florida spoke about what was going on in the Sunshine State. Abortionist Penegraff wanted to set up a chain of late term abortion mills. He lied under oath, threatened to sue the city of Ocala, and went to federal prison for extortion. These are some abortionists that did abortions past 24 weeks (Tiller, Penegraff, Randall and Gusnel). Baby Rowan, was one of the babies that was born alive and killed. He was injected with dioxin that stops the heart. The mom felt the baby move and saw it after the birth. She held the baby in her arms. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfnNzIzvT-k Baby Rowan's mom was counseled by our Melody Miller of Jackson MS.
 
One of their websites is http://www.latetermabortion.net/  Randall Whitney had his license suspended in Ocala and was recently arrested and taken out of the clinic with handcuffs. He slapped a pregnant patient and was charged for 2nd degree felony. He didn't show for the trial so there was a warrant out for his arrest. A sidewalk counselor called the police and Jay actually saw him taken out in chains. Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTGLuMeREw4 Orlando Abortionist Slaps Patient, Arrested for Aggravated Battery
 
The leaders in Orlando have moral integrity and there are more ethnic churches involved. After 40 DAYS FOR LIFE they had 40 black people come out from the neighborhood. Jay was the only white person. It is vital now for the young people to get involved because we are not going to be around forever.  
 
Kelly Klinger, a back up for Brittany Spears, got pregnant and had 2 abortions. Her dad is the deacon of a Baptist Church in Florida. One of the abortions was at Penegraff's. She had complications and now she cant have any children! She hates herself for this! She said if we have the National Event in Orlando she will come out and speak. She went to Denver and spoke at an event for the Scotts.
 
Jay is working on a website that lists the abortionist  for every clinic and tells clients of their arrests. Young people can do this in their own states. They constantly keep up with the clinics on Facebook.
 
SATURDAY: We were off to Latrobe and Hebron killing places, we split in two groups. We had breakfast at 6 AM and left at 6:30 for the mill. We were fortunate if we got four hours sleep per night. While we were there the parking lot guys called the police on us saying we were blocking the driveway. A cop car came, he pulled in the parking lot, talked to the plaintiffs, turned around rolled both his windows down and said out each window :"Don't block the driveway, have a good day!" He apparently did not want to be bothered with their nonsense.
 
At 10:30 AM we left to go to the abortionist home with Pastor Mark, we split up and went out two by two to each house on all the nearby streets. Carmen and I only had one negative reply. It was two young women in their twenties pulling out of a driveway and they said they did not want the flier, they were pro-choice. I said "you can pray for him" they said "we don't pray" I should have known better! Another lady was hugging me for coming to her door and WAS so sweet to us. Another man said he knew "Dr" Harris but did not know he did abortions! He said he will definitely pray, I hope he speaks to him about it. 
It was a good outreach. This is a picture of his house, nobody answered the door. A flier was left. Kelly and Colbi were passing out fliers on different streets in the neighborhood.   
    
 
Destiny Thomas and Caleb Hall's engagement party was from 2 PM- 4 PM. It was very nice and we all are so happy for Miss Destiny. She is a gem! We all love her.
 
That night Pastor Mark taught us many things. One  was about Arturus (Job 38:32) and spiritual synergy (Ephesians 4:16) Mixing Christians together with the Holy Spirit is very productive.The result of the merger is always very successful. The whole is greater than the sum. He also taught on The Three Righteous Amigos:  Daniel, Job and Noah. (Ezekial 14:14) They all suffered great persecution, judgement and adversity but their righteousness delivered them all.  What does the Lord do with zero compromise? John Bunyan, who wrote the 2nd best book of all time, is a prime example. The first best book is the Bible and the second it Pilgrim's Progress. John Bunyan knew the first amendment before it was even born. Rights are given to men by God. Mr Bunyan went to jail for 12 years . He would not compromise and sign a false statement. His wife backed him up and wouldn't let him sign either.
 
Pastor Mark's friend, Bruce Garren, tried to find a legislator in Wichita that will introduce Personhood. Kansas Right to Life is very supportive. Pray for Randy Garber, he said he would carry the banner for Personhood there!
 
Jason and David Benham, Flip's twin sons spoke afterward. They learned a lot since a year ago when the back wall on their newly purchased building complex collapsed. God has given them the gift of being activators.When God brings something to you, it must have potential, opportunity and the smile of God on it! The Lord took their premature decisions and taught them that they need to wait and He will give them the wings of an eagle. Their business isn't about money, its about God. They have been blessed with 93 franchises in the US and also the Philippines and Bangladesh.  They are out of debt now and the building is fully paid. 
 
David taught about old and new wineskins from Ezekiel 37. The old wineskins are church centered, the new wineskins are sphere centered. Don't sit in your church healing room - but go out to the streets healing. Old wineskin is the Gospel of Salvation, the new wineskin is the Gospel of the Kingdom which includes salvation. The old wineskin church sits, studies, thinks and grows. The new wineskin in John 17:14 learns, does, teaches, trains and replicates. We need to all get rid of "things" and get sleek. Finish the work. Jesus replicated himself in the hearts of 11 men. Ezekiel 36 talks about the valley of dry bones and how they rose and became a mighty army that devoured the beast of the field. Many shepherds are not shepherds at all. They lie and build their own kingdoms, most behind the pulpits are CEO's and politicians. 
 
We have become inwardly focused. We need to repent and make commitment to get out of debt. We have to master our craft. The remnant is to understand the times. We need organization from the back. Get rid of the old wineskins. Right now the frontline is doing everything in the prolife ministry. There is an analysis paralysis in the church. We need a back end infrastructure. The frontline saints need to bring the women to the supply line that is set up to help them from conception to graduation. LifeCharlotte.org will be a total resource center the Benham boys are working on. It will have two doctors, two CPC's and 4-5 churches for each area. Once they get it set up, we would like to have the same resource for the  Bridgeport/New Haven counties connected to it.  This site can also equip us to expose SteriCycle, abortion clinics in complexes, and help serve lawsuits against abortionists.
 
Pastor Mark teaching and Miss Lundi Mae Benham, that we all prayed for!   
 
 
 
SUNDAY: In the morning Flip challenged us at Sunday School. (He taught later at the service at Truth Temple plus Jason and David came up to speak too.) Flip said to: Either pick up your cross or satisfy yourself. Which do you choose to do? Flip brought up Adam Tenant, who did a great teaching on" My House Should Be A House of Prayer" and Jason Dillinger taught on "Willing Hearts". These are all young family men learning how to present a message quickly and precisely. Pastor Bill Dunfee spoke about their "New Beginnings" ministry out at the strip club (The Fox Hole) and how the strippers, in their skimpy nearly nude outfits, picketed his church for six weeks in a row. What a challenge that must have been!
 
After you share in Christ's sufferings, then you will share in His inheritance. Everyone founded in Christ will suffer. Jesus saved us so we can glorify Him on the earth. We have some work to do in the trenches, God allows people in our paths to rob us of our joy and peace. Then we can be arrested with Christ and share in His sufferings. Then we will never be alienated from Him again.

Welcome "Princess" Diana, First Baby in 2011
 
"...Therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live" Deuteronomy 30:19
 
 
Welcome to this year's first baby born for OSA-CT. Diana was born today at 11:08 AM at Bridgeport Hospital. She weighed in at 8 pounds 4 ounces and is 21 inches long. PTL! Elena (31) is the mom that gave her testimony at our Roe Memorial this past Saturday. This morning she called after 9 AM and asked if Carmen could come to the hospital because she needed an interpreter. She was crying in pain from labor. Carmen called me to go with her in the midst of another snow storm. (We already have had 57 inches of snow and 12 more coming tonight).  
 
Well Carmen called her back and her husband said she already had the baby and all was well. Thank God she had her little girl so fast she didn't even need to get any anesthesia! Her siblings ( a girl-14 and two boys 8 and 1) were so excited about the arrival of their new sister they couldn't wait for their uncle to come and get them so they could see her.
 
" You shall not murder." Exodus 20:13  
 
 "There are six things which the LORD hates, yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood..." Proverbs 6:16-19
 
We drove there on the highway in bumper to bumper snow traffic but God got us there safely. We brought her all the layette items she needed for her new daughter, she was very appreciate and thanking us for every gift (a towel robe and towels, sleepers,bibs, outfits, socks, shoes,slippers, gloves, hats, bunting, wipes, etc). The clothes were so adorable,  thanks to Pastor Gast and his wife for bringing them over Monday. Jeff is picking up her bassinet and dressing table in New Haven and delivering them by Friday.We were also able to give her a check to pay for her prenatal care that she needed help with. When she opened the card and saw the check she started to cry with humble sincere gratitude. Again, we cannot do this alone. We are the frontline and many of you are our supply line. We thank you and are forever indebted to you for making it possible to help the lost and needy.
 
Elena was so glad she decided to chose life for her baby. I was so touched by this little one. I had tears in my eyes just thinking she could have been killed like the rest of the aborted babies.
 
I wanted to take her home with me, she is so adorable. I had the pleasure of feeding her a bottle of formula. She drank down about an ounce and when I sat her up she burped so fast she was ready to drink more. Carmen and I changed her diaper and got her all cleaned up and bundled warm like a little papoose.
 
This mom and her husband are both hard workers. They are not lazy. They work and keep their apartment and children very clean. We had a nice visit in the hospital, just us, for a couple of hours and shared our hearts. We laid hands on Elena and baby Diana and prayed for them. Please pray for this family's salvation. She has a Spanish Mark Cahill "One Heartbeat Away" book to read that we gave her. We would also like to get her in a Spanish bible study (maybe Jennie can teach her and Zepherina?) The most important thing to us is that they come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior in a personal real way. PLEASE PRAY.
 
I took a bunch of pictures of this precious new child at only three hours old! You can go to this link on my FB and see them http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=37874&id=100001274996001&l=f4914fa388

Psalm 139:13-16 "For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. "

NEEDS FOR THE MINISTRY: diapers, wipes, stop and shop food cards, 

We also need a sturdy printer that can produce many copies. We give out lots of literature.  We can also use a better quality camera with a higher zoom and higher pixel count for good quality pictures for our reports, our albums and for the moms.

"And God will generously provide all we need. Then we will always have everything we need and plenty left over to share with others. As the Scriptures say, "Godly people give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will never be forgotten."  2 Cori. 9:8-9

OSA-CT Annual Roe v Wade Memorial
 
To see the photos from the event go to my FB album at this link: 
 
 
 
 
Over 75 people gathered for our annual Roe V Wade Memorial event Saturday, January 22, 2011 at 8 AM. It was held near the Summit Abortuary on 3887 Main St Bridgeport.  It was great to have Carmen's husband, Al Vazquez, be our emcee. He did a wonderful job announcing everyone! This is the fourth year Ray from Luz de Paz was the hearse driver and we thank Edgar Rodriguez for letting us use his limo from Luz de Paz Funeral Home in Bridgeport. We have this procession to remember all the precious children killed by abortion here and let everyone know that we consider each and everyone of them extremely valuable. I always pray our Lord lets these babies  know that we loved them enough to plead for their lives and we can't wait to meet each one of them someday in Heaven!  
 
"By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?  My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth."  I John 3:16-18 
 
The bagpiper, Durant McCurley from East Haven, was freezing as he led the funeral procession with the song "Amazing Grace". He played another mournful song by the baby casket as we all bowed our heads and remembered the babies. The pall bearers were our routine youth that are out on the streets regularly: Daniel Eldredge (9), Brodie Rutherford (12), Colbi Rowland (18) and Kelly Vazquez (24).
 
Pastor Kenneth Trawick, Carmen's pastor, from Promise Land Church of God in West Haven was the first of the clergy to share in scripture, prayer and testimony. Following was Father Greg Markey of St Mary's Roman Catholic Church in Norwalk, Pastor Pedro Vazquez of Gospel Light Community Church in Bridgeport, Pastor Hector Muniz of Lighthouse Community Church, Bridgeport and Pastor Tom McMillan from my church, Calvary Life Christian Center, in Cheshire. It is very uncommon for us to have an African American pastor standing with us to speak out against black genocide. We hope more Christians of color will come out especially because the majority of the women going into the mill are black (look up Maafa 21 on http://www.youtube.com/). 
 
One of the Hispanic moms, Elena, that changed her mind from aborting, came with her teen daughter, Jackie, to help her give her testimony in English:
 
"My mom came to Summit Women's Center and she changed her mind from having an abortion. She is thankful to God that she didn't go through with it. After talking to Carmen and the other pro-lifers she realized that she wasn't making the right choice.
I am the oldest out of her three children and I have two brothers. My mom is due to have her baby girl any day and we are all so excited that she choose life for our baby sister. She wants everyone to know she is grateful for all the help and support she receives.  
She desires to let other women know to think twice before having an abortion. A baby is a gift from the Lord and we shouldn't reject God's greatest gift. My mom appreciates all of you and thanks you all so much. God Bless You! " 
 
  
 
We were honored to have some Godly statesmen present, who shared their thoughts with us.
TR Rowe (CT State Representative), Bill O'Brien (CT Right to Life) and our attorney, Michael DePrimo who is really our "guardian angel" incognito. All these men shared interesting facts and comments. There are some bills introduced in Hartford for life. Just to name a few that are in the assembly waiting to be heard and voted on are: 1.) trying to de-fund Planned Parenthood  2.) the Fetal Homicide bill which recognizes the baby as a separate person in cases of assault and homicide (The leading cause of death in pregnant women is manslaughter. )  3.) pro-life legislation that would make it a crime for someone (usually a parent or a boyfriend) to force a woman to have an abortion.  
 
We also had a special guest, a nurse practitioner and award winning author, Cortney Davis. She's written a few books on the art of nursing and a little booklet called "Is it a Baby, or just some cells?"  about her "pro-choice" experience working in a women's "health care clinic" and what made her turn to be pro-life. Her newest release "To Begin Again" is about a OB/GYN that turns from pro-abortion to pro-life. This book is getting a lot of attention because of its controversial theme. ( Amazon.com )
 
    
 
The Bridgeport Police have continued the tradition, started by Police Chief Wilbur Chapman, of having our event protected by the mounted police. The horses are a majestic display of God's creation. The picture above right shows the contrast of choosing life or death. My nephew, Daniel, who was adopted, is the picture of life and he is holding "Baby Malachi " which is a picture of death. Daniel is alive because his birth mother loved him enough to give him life and he is holding a baby whose mom didn't love him and chose death.
 
In closing, Carmen gave the ministry totals (over 2000 babies saved in the past 21 years and almost 400 salvations). PTL!  We wanted to thank everyone that had any part in the success of this ministry. We are on the frontline in this very real battle, three days a week. Rest assured that just knowing we have many of you backing us up with prayers and material blessings makes it a whole lot easier for us to do what we do. When we plead to persuade abortion bound moms not to kill their children we offer them many resources. We help them find jobs, homes and schooling programs. We have baby showers and get them all the supplies they need to care for their children which includes, clothes, food, diapers, formula, furniture etc. Carmen, Brenda and I, plus the rest of the OSA-CT crew, cannot do this alone and we truly appreciate all your help from the bottom of our hearts. We even had a whole crew shoveling snow on the sidewalks because nobody here does it. Kelly gets the special award for the most ice chipped away! Yeah Kelly! You are hired. 
Pastor Brad Trawick closed our event with prayer and song. We give our Lord all the glory for what He has done, without Him we are nothing. He also blessed our event Thursday night in New Haven, and gave us favor to make front page headline news getting His word out! Our God is an awesome God!
  
 
"But blessed are your eyes, because you see; and your ears because they hear. I assure you, many prophets and godly people have longed to see and hear what you have seen and heard, but they could not. " Matthew 13:16-17

Dinner Honoring Abortion Providers in CT and Notorious Nebraskan Abortonist Leroy Carhart
 
"Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. " Ephesians 5:11
"Making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil." Ephesians 5:16
 
 
We arrived at the 420 Humphrey Street driveway at 5:15 PM as planned. It was 25 degrees out, a still coldness with no wind, thank God! Ron M was on one side of the driveway here under the NEW HAVEN LAWN CLUB sign and Danny and Vinny on the other side. After most of the people were there (40) some went over to the other side on the 193 Whitney Ave. entrance. The facility called the police and complained we were blocking the sidewalk and the driveway........but we know better! The New Haven Register sent a reporter and a photographer to do an exclusive article for the New Haven Register. I hope and pray its an honest one. We will see tomorrow.
 
 
Pastor Loomer from Milford Christian Church and Fr Markey from St Mary's Church in Norwalk, led the groups in prayer for the unborn and the soul of our nation. We are able to give literature to about 1/3 of the passers-by and maybe 10 of the 75 cars that went into the driveways. We gave out a fair amount of literature. A young man in a car stopped to ask about when life actually begins. Him and his girlfriend had gone for an abortion and he had some questions.  He first spoke to Brenda, then me, then Jeff. I think he left with a different perspective and we gave him the booklet "Is it a Baby, or just some cells" by Nurse practitioner Cortney Davis to take home and read. He even said he may come put to Planned Parenthood in New Haven with us to minister. PTL! 
 
We got the normal fingers from a few pro-aborts going in and ugly faces that looked like they wanted to kill us, but we are used to all of that. God says to rejoice when we are persecuted for righteousness sake! By the end of the night we were the chosen frozen so we left about 7:30 PM after all the cars were in. We think we saw Carhart come in a SUV surrounded by body guards. We need to pray for all the abortion providers, that our Lord will give them eyes to see and ears to hear what He is saying to them. Mercy and justice.

PS - Leroy Carhart - the late term abortionist that worked hand and hand with the late George Tiller of Wichita, Kansas is in the same category as this butcher below. 
 

 

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A West Philadelphia abortion doctor, his wife and eight other suspects are now under arrest following a grand jury investigation.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, faces eight counts of murder in the deaths of a woman following a botched abortion at his office, along with the deaths of seven other babies who, prosecutors allege, were born alive following illegal late-term abortions and then were killed by severing their spinal cords with a pair of scissors.

"I am aware that abortion is a hot-button topic," said District Attorney Seth Williams. "But as district attorney, my job is to carry out the law. A doctor who knowingly and systematically mistreats female patients, to the point that one of them dies in his so-called care, commits murder under the law. A doctor who cuts into the necks severing the spinal cords of living, breathing babies, who would survive with proper medical attention, is committing murder under the law."

Gosnell is facing charges of murder in the third degree for the death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar.  Mrs. Mongar died on November 20, 2009, when she was overdosed with anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell.  He is also facing seven murder charges for the deaths of infants who were killed after being born viable and alive during the sixth, seventh, or eighth month of pregnancy. Gosnell is also facing numerous other charges.

Gosnell is suspected of killing hundreds of living babies over the course of his 30-year practice. However, he is not charged because the records do not exist.

DA Williams said Gosnell made approximately $1.8 million in one year alone performing the procedures.
