Here is little J'la born premature on Dec. 5, 2012 weighing 3 lbs. 2 oz.
and now at home from the hospital after growing to 4 lbs. 3 oz.

PTL! She is a miracle baby!
Pastor Loomer is thrilled to have two moms from the ministry at his church service on 12/16/12.
Jera on the left had her baby girl J'la (above) and Jolanda on the right with her mom is due to
have her baby boy on 1/21/13. Yoland read a beautiful thank you note with tears to Pastor
Loomer and his church for all the baby shower gifts and all the support she received from his
church. Thank you Pastor Loomer !
James 1:27 "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after
orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
We (Carmen & Marilyn) are going to the 40th Roe V Wade Memorial in Mississippi. This will also
be our Operation Save America National leaders meeting for 2013. Mississippi has only one
abortion mill left and hopefully it will be the first abortion free state. Therefore, we will not be
able to do a Roe Memorial in Bridgeport this year. We encourage others to plan an event and we
will promote it.
In 1990 when we started this ministry there were about 2000 free standing abortion clinics in the
U.S. But because pro-life Christians have come out to the streets to pray and take a public stand
there are approximately 600 mills remaining in 2012. When we started in Bridgeport there were
up to 80 babies killed four days a week, now it is down to about 8-9 babies killed twice a week.
We won’t be happy until all the killing totally stops! The Summit abortuary in Hartford has closed
down and we are praying that the mill in Bridgeport shuts down too. Saturdays and Wednesdays
are the current schedule for surgical abortions; we are there from 8 AM- 10 AM at 3787 Main St.
Brenda and Ron Rutherford have taken in four foster children since June. This is a family that
Brenda met at Planned Parenthood in New Haven and has been trying to help. They children are
ages 5, 3, 2, and 8 months old. Whenever they go somewhere they need to take two cars.
Sometimes Ron has to stay home from work so he and Brenda can take the kids to necessary
appointments. If you know anyone that has a decent van they want to donate or sell at a
reasonable price, please let us know.
Alex (3) , Tyrek (14), Blake (4), Nathan (1 mth.), Jaiquin (1yr.), AJ (1 yr.) Alesandra (1 yr)
We wish you all a blessed Christmas week and a Holy, Happy and Healthy New Year in 2013! We
are believing God to do mighty things for His glory ! Thank you for your help!
For the Least of These,
Marilyn Carroll & Carmen Vazquez
Needs: diapers, wipes, Stop & Shop food cards.
Housing for Ebony’s family and a van for Brenda’s family.

November 2012: 10 babies were saved
78 surgical abortions Bridgeport
Since 1990: 2250 babies saved, 407 salvations
Frances gave birth to Nathan Louis on Dec. 1, 2012, 3:33 PM
He weighed in at 7 pounds 9 ounces at St Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury
Mom and Dad and three brothers our happy for the new baby’s arrival!
This is Diana (almost 2) a saved baby, with her brother.
Pastor Loomer was there when Jolanda changed her mind at PP and he wanted to shower her with God's blessing with a baby shower at his church. Many Christians came to encourage and celebrate with Jolanda and Keyjaun because they chose life for their baby! Jolanda gave her life to Christ on 11/25/12 and we are praying for Keyjaun to do the same. She is due to have a baby boy in January.
Ebony is due to have twin boys on Dec 16th. We are still trying to find them a place to live. This past week six babies were saved! Praise the Lord. Two are a set of twins. Please join us at 3787 Main Street Bridgeport where we reach out to those who find themselves where they should not be. The schedule lately is Wednesdays and Saturdays 8 AM- 10 AM. Come and take a public stand against abortion. You can hold a sign, pray or distribute literature
Pastor Ed Martin from Georgia said “Let me make this perfectly straight, I never felt God calling me to do this work, nor do I consider it my vocation in life. THE KILLING OF THE UNBORN CHILDREN IS AN EMERGENCY, ALL I AM DOING IS RESPONDING TO THAT EMERGENCY. I would love to pastor a large church or run a huge ministry with a nice paycheck to boot. It is the emergency that puts me out on the street most days in front of a killing center to try to save these wonderful children.”
On Saturday Nov. 24th at PP, a young man Viren (16 yrs. old) was pleading for the life of his baby. His girlfriend was inside PP and she didn't want to come back out to talk with us. Carmen spoke to her extensively over the phone and pleaded with her to come out and talk with us. The young mom was afraid to tell her parents that she was pregnant and we encouraged her not to worry that and we would go with her to talk to her parents. She never came out. Jeff Christman counseled Viren and led him in the sinner’s prayer to receive Christ into his life. We gave him a bible and Jeff offered to bring him to church on Sunday. PTL
Jazmin stopped by to visit and say thank you for all the help she received from the ministry. She showed us pictures (above) of her twins. They are 8 years old now and doing well. Jazmin is so happy and thanks God for her children.
Here are two more ministry babies, AJ is two and Alesandra is one.
NEEDS: Diapers, wipes and Stop & Shop food cards needed continuously.
Thank you for your help, we cannot do this alone.

“What candidate would give us the greatest opportunity to proclaim the Gospel of Christ in the
streets of America?” Pastor Flip Benham, OSA National
“Then Jesus turned to the crowd and said ‘When you see clouds beginning to form in the west you
say, “Here comes a shower.” And you are right. When the south wind blows you say, “Today will
be a scorcher.” And it is. Hypocrites! You interpret the sky well enough, but you refuse to notice
warnings all around you about the crisis ahead. Why do you refuse to see for yourselves what is
right?” Luke 12: 54-57
We have many of pregnant moms due soon. Some of them are listed below. Please keep them in prayer.
Ebony is pregnant with twin boys. One baby is not growing as much as the other, so please pray for their health. They also need a reasonably priced apartment with 2 bedrooms.
Frances is expecting her fourth boy. Pray for their financial situation and that the baby’s dad
comes to know the Lord. She has been coming to Calvary Life Church when she doesn’t have to
Also pray for LaShona, Diana, Suzzette, another Diana, Miranda, Shena and Monne. Thanks!
This week’s surgical abortions at the Summit Abortuary are Wednesday and Friday, so please join
us between 8AM- 10 AM on 3787 Main St ,Bridgeport. We reach out to moms in crisis with
literature, counseling and resources. You can pray, hold a sign or distribute brochures. Email me
or check my Facebook (Marilyn Danny Carroll) to know each week’s schedule.
Bernie Starron passed away Oct. 18th at the age of 90. He was a faithful prayer warrior at the
abortion mill in Bridgeport for many years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Mary and
his daughter Tacyanna. (Above he is pictured with Fran Zotti)
I wanted to share a few short stories to encourage you. Today at the mill a big black 4x4 pulled
up in front with an African American lady in it. She rolled her window down, I went over to the
car and she started complaining that she didn’t like what we do. I was very calm and started
sharing with her about all the moms that have changed their minds and what we do for the
moms. I gave her a resource list with all the help offered. I showed her the collage and told her
about the albums of baby pictures we have of saved babies.
She told me that she adopted three boys from DCF and I told her Daniel (who was standing right
next to me) was adopted too. I gave her Shaylah’s testimony and told her to read it later. All of
sudden her eyes welled up with tears and she apologized and said she was sorry for assuming.
She really had no idea who we were or what we did. God is just so awesome!
A couple of weeks ago Danny and I were at Stop & Shop in the line. There was a pregnant young
lady in front of us with her mom. I started talking to her and asking about her baby. I told her
what we did and she told me she had my number and she remembered me from the Summit. She
said she chose life for her baby after talking to us. This is just an example of lives saved that we
don’t even know about! Thank you Jesus for encouraging us!
Two Saturdays ago, my nephew Daniel (11), went around the side of the fence and was talking to
the doorman. He never talks to us except to complain about something. Daniel gave him a “God
Bless You” card and he took it. Daniel asked him his name and he told him. Daniel talked to him
about abortion and he told Daniel he wasn’t going to be there long, he was going to get another
job. PTL! Well, this doorman hasn’t been at the mill all week so we are hoping he got a new job
NEEDS: diapers, wipes, stop & shop food cards, any baby items in good condition.

Moms come back to show their gratitude! What an encouragement to us!
Mom (Alma), with daughter (Christina), who is now 10 years old
Mom (Carmen) with daughter, who is now 12 years old.
Moms are always stopping by in Bridgeport to tell us how grateful they are that someone was there to help them choose life for their children. These both are so blessed to have their daughters in their lives. One of them wants to start going to church with her family.
Just in the last two weeks: Two moms rode by blowing love and kisses to us out the window.
Another mom came to breakfast with us and said she is forever grateful that we were there for her during a very difficult time in her life and she will never forget it.
Another mom came and showed us her baby saying we help her more than her family.
Another sent a Facebook message saying “You both are very special because you are one of the reasons my baby girl is here today, along with God and my family. I would love for us to get together. She is running now, she says words, she’s amazing, she hugs and kisses me, it’s unbelievable. I couldn’t picture my life without her! “
Another texted and said “I am praying all the time and I read the Jesus book to my boys. I want to bring them to church with me. Lately I have been listening to God and know He has something good in store for me. I don’t know where we would be if we didn’t meet you.”
Another mom wrote a paper on Planned Parenthood in her college class and how she met us on the streets and saved her baby’s life. Now she loves him so much and he is her life.
Others came and called thanking us for the things we get for them.
We tell them it’s not us, its God! He is the Head and we are His body, the Church. We are His mouthpiece, His hands and His feet on this earth. It’s our pleasure and honor to do His work. We can’t do this alone, we are the frontline and we have a supply line helping us (that’s all of you).
No matter how you help: in prayer or in giving material things, or in your presence at the mill, it all works together for good for those who love Him and for those who are needy.
September 2012 Stats: In Bridgeport: 46 babies killed by surgical abortion and 6 babies spared from abortion. They also do chemical abortions (morning after pill, oral contraceptives, patch, injections, etc) and medical abortions (up to 7 weeks) RU-486. In New Haven at Planned Parenthood on Saturdays in September it appears that about 111 women went in for abortions. Since 1990: 2236 babies have been saved and 406 salvations. All the glory goes to God who allows us to co-labor with Him!
On Sept. 28th we meet a Muslim couple that was going into Summit. We had an opportunity
to talk to them extensively before they went into the parking lot. The young woman wanted to
have the abortion but her husband had his doubts. We encouraged them to trust the Lord and
reminded them that Muslims don't murder their babies. We were able to give them the book of
John & Romans with a DVD of the life of Jesus in their native tongue. They were very open
and the man started to cry as he was convicted about the abortion and his wife started crying
also. The Lord moved on their hearts and they never went inside the mill! PTL We were able to give
them the Eclipse of Reason DVD that shows the procedure and they took it home with them.
We called them the next day and the husband said he and his wife watched the video and
they were mortified at what they saw. They are keeping their baby and this is their
fifth child. He was so grateful that someone was there to talk to him and his wife. We are so
touched by how humble this man was and how lost he is without Christ. It reminds us of what
the scripture says "I will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children". We'll be staying in touch
with this couple and ask everyone to pray for couples like these that are so blinded to what abortion
really is and who the true God is.
“The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord,” Romans 6:23
In the picture above Marilyn is talking with Madeline, who we know from the bus stop near the Summit. When this Hispanic mom was going into the mill, she translated for us in Spanish and the mom changed her mind. Madeline is drawing closer and closer to the Lord and she was so excited to play a part in saving this baby’s life. God even uses the bystanders on the streets to minister for Him!
“All those who hate me (God’s wisdom, love death.” Proverbs 8:36)
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” Ephesians 5:11
Here is Ron and Brenda with their crew they’ve been taking care of for the last five months. The four children have adjusted well and now say “I love you” to them. Their son, Brodie, has been such a blessing helping out with the children and is very protective of Baby Brenda. Please keep them in prayer and for the biological parents for salvation and stability. The Rutherfords still need a van to transport the family together. When they go somewhere now they need two cars and two drivers. If you know of any vans available for a reasonable price please let us know.

JESUS’S MIRACLE BABIES BORN IN CONNECTICUT
1st picture-- This miracle baby girl was born 8/17/12 at Yale New Haven Hospital.
Her name is Miah and she weighed 6 lbs., 6 oz. We are so excited we get to
see the fruit of the ministry! These are God's image bearers. PTL
2nd picture-- This is a 17 yrs. old mom who had her precious baby girl at St. Vincent's
Hospital on 8/20/12. The baby's name is Esmeralda and she weighed 8 lbs., 4 oz. The doctors
were surprised that she weighed 8 lbs they expected a smaller baby! She is beautiful.
3rd picture- This is Janel, she was born at St Vincent’s Hospital on 8/25/12. She weighed in at 6 lbs. 5 oz. Her parents are very humble and appreciate the things we have given them.
This is one of the moms that was having family issues at home and she
called crying for help since her parents told her she had to move out. Carmen called Joe
and Nancy Leta a couple from her church that volunteered to help us by opening up their
home to moms in crisis. They were such a blessing to this mother and her baby girl Ginelly.
They discipled her and brought her to church. With the Lord's help this mother was able to go
back home after two weeks and reunited with her family again. We thank God for the body of
Christ that we can work together in time of need. To God be the glory!
Alesandra had her first birthday August 3rd. PTL!
Shaylah (18 on Aug. 27th) and AJ (2 on Aug. 10th ) are at Wilson College in Pennsylvania. Shaylah received a full scholarship for her and AJ to go there. She was Valedictorian of James Hill House Family High School senior class this year and also a Gates Millennium Scholar. She is not ashamed of the gospel and a firm believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Shaylah’s prayer: “Jesus your love is ineffable-unconditional-merciful Lord Redeem the time even longer for this corrupt generation. Continue to send your sweet and strong spirit so that we can withstand the trials and temptations by the evil one. Thank you for blessing me even in my distress and despair; your grace is sufficient. It’s all in your hands Jesus...not my battle. O Kinsman Redeemer, Jehova Shalom! I war cry for my friends, foes and strangers. Lord keep them because they too have eyes to see and ears to hear your word so that they can live blamelessly! Please, humanity NEEDS YOU!!!”
We pray God’s best for Fara, Corey and children with their new move to Franklinton, NC. They have been a precious part of our ministry for the past 21 years. We love them and pray for them always.
“He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will reward him for what he has done.”
I want to thank April McMillan from my church, Calvary Life, in Cheshire for taking two of the pregnant moms to church and delivering needs to them. Please pray for Frances and Soly’s walk with the Lord to grow. Pray against hindrances. They are reading their bibles and really love church!
Good news : The Summit Women’s Center in Hartford has closed! This is the sister clinic to our mill. Now we pray that the Summit Women’s Center in Bridgeport will close too. We need your prayer presence here at 3787 Main St. Bpt. on Tues. Wed. Fri. Sat. 8-10 AM. Come and see what God will do! He will save lives and souls through your efforts. He just wants a willing body to be His voice, His hands, His feet. He is the Head and we are the Body of Christ. If not us-then who? If not now-then when?
PRAYER REQUESTS: please pray for Fr Francis McCloskey in New York. Nancy, Tom and Daniel went to see him at the convalescent home where he is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Fr Francis is a friend of the babies and did many rescues to save their lives. We were involved with him at many “Oh Saratoga! “ events in New York and he came here to CT for many of our prolife activities.
Also please pray for Terry Helfrich, one of our co-laborers (who adopted five children years ago). She had open heart surgery and was away from home for 54 days! She had to go back to the hospital three times by ambulance from the nursing home. They had to give her a pacemaker. I spoke with her and she said she doesn’t feel like herself. She has had months of discomfort and expects more. Her hands are swollen too. Please pray for her. Jesus is the Great Physician and nothing is impossible for Him!
NEEDS: 2 dressers, boy clothes size 6-7 , diapers 2-5, wipes, food cards. Donations can be sent to: OSA-CT, 632 Merwin Ave Milford CT 06460-3820. Giving is at its all time low and we need resources to help these moms. We promise to help Moms if they keep their babies and we must keep our word. We are the frontlines four days a week pleading with moms planning to abort, can you be our supply line? We can’t do this alone. Last month we had a grandmother send us two five dollar bills. She is poor and takes care of her five grandchildren (one of them is a saved baby) I consider what she gave “the widow’s mite” and was humbled to receive her offering. No donation is too small or too big.
62 babies were killed by abortion
5 babies were saved from death
2226 babies saved & 404 salvations
We thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who makes all things possible!
Twenty Christians traveled from Connecticut to the OSA National Event in Charlotte, North Carolina.

We had an awesome week with our brothers and sisters from all over our nation as we came
together to proclaim the gospel on the streets of Charlotte, North Carolina. We all had chances to
minister to people we met at the abortion mills and on the city streets. Baby’s lives and peoples
souls were saved from death because God’s word went forth to accomplish His will. Some went to
Stericycle, where they incinerate babies bodies as “medical waste”. They were well received by
the community there. Others went to visit abortionists and their neighbors exposing their wicked
deeds of darkness. We have one abortionist, Ron Vermani, on video, saying he likes to kill “ugly
black babies”! God help us. youtube video
To see the OSA-CT photo album of the national event go to my Facebook Page:
Mar's FB page
This is one of the moms we met on the streets that choose life for her baby.
They are both very happy and doing well! PTL!
Below is a picture of baby Jayden born on 7/10/12, 7lbs, 4 oz., with his mom (19 yrs. old).
She was being pressured to have an abortion by family members and friends. Jason, one of our
sidewalk counselors that attended high school with this mother, encouraged her to trust God and
let the ministry help her with supplies. Now she is so happy that she chose life for her precious
son Jayden! PTL
Coach Dave Daubenmire, from “Pass the Salt” ministries, encouraged the saints at OSA National
to go the extra mile and do what others won’t. God’s laws are put into place to protect the
innocent. We are supposed to do more than the government ‘law” compels us to do. We need to
think of the victims that are being massacred through abortion or harmed in other ways. We
should do anything we can to save them. Jesus teaches us to have a higher level of living – to go
a second mile for the least of these. We need to survey our lives and ask ourselves how many
times we have looked the other way when somebody needed our help. In America many hearts
have turned cold. We have to be willing to pay the price to defy ungodly law. Proverbs 24:11
tells us to deliver them that are drawn to death. Use the gifts God has given you. Your gift will
take you where your character cannot. The law compels and God requires. We can make a
difference in a lost and dying world.
Urgent Request: WE NEED FINANCIAL HELP FOR OSA-CT!
We know these are bad economic times but if everyone just gave a little (even $5.00 a month) it
would all add up to a lot. Think about it; $5.00 a month means one day of not having a coffee
and a doughnut at Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks! If you can give more great! We have so many
moms and babies we are helping right now. We cannot do this alone. We are on the front lines
four days a week and we need others to be our supply line. Please consider giving something.

Additional needs: Diapers, wipes, Stop & Shop food cards.

Count for June 2012: 124 babies killed by surgical abortion
9 babies spared when moms changed their mind
37 babies saved so far this year / 2221 babies saved since 1990
404 salvations since 1990
A note from the Rutherfords: In the end of May, one of the families we've been trying to work with for the past 4 years, unfortunately, found themselves in a position where the state deemed it necessary to remove the children from the home. When this happened we decided to bring the four children, ages 5, 2, 17 months, and 3 months, into our home to make sure that these siblings weren't separated by the state.
Needless to say, its been a very busy past 4 weeks, but the children are adjusting wonderfully, and are doing great. The Lord has been answering prayers and providing for the needs of these children, and we have truly been blessed by having them in our home. The oldest boy, Giovanni, has done an amazing job of learning how to use the big boy potty (Thank you Lord!!) and rarely has accidents anymore. Our little early bird, Alejandro, still insists on climbing out of bed around 5:00 AM, but we're working very patiently on that. Angel, our 17 month old...well...let’s just say that we have very lovingly nicknamed him the town crier (and for good reason), but he's soooo very cute that you can't possibly get upset with him. And little Miss Brenda named after my wife, Brenda, has been working very hard at trying to sleep through the night for us, but hasn't quite gotten there yet.
We are currently going through the process of becoming licensed foster parents and going through that process has proven to be more demanding than caring for the children, but thanks to lots of help from many good friends we've been keeping up with the states demands as well.
One of the biggest obstacles we have come across is transportation, now that we've more than doubled the size of our family overnight, whenever we want or need to go anywhere it requires taking two vehicles, so if anyone knows of a very reasonably priced vehicle with third row seating please let us know...in the Lords service.
UPDATES ON MOMS AND BABIES:
This is Cano who just turned ten years old. He is
going into the fifth grade and is an honor student.
He is one of four children and his mother is so thankful to
God that she chose life for him!
On the left is Destin and his mother Mia who had a birthday and turned nine years
old. He loves karate! His prayer is to meet his Daddy
someday. Pray for him and his mom.
On the right is one of the moms that changed her mind a year ago with her cute ten month
old son and her daughter. She is a stay at home mom and her husband works
hard to keep her home! PTL
This is Gera and Kendall with her cousin. They are both twenty. We met them on June 15. This couple changed their mind after a big struggle with Gera's grandmother that was pressuring her to have an abortion. Thank God Kendall came up to us first because he didn't agree with the grandmother. He doesn't have a job and wanted to know how we can help him. On June 27 Kelly and Isaac took Kendall and Gera to the library to help them get a library card. He was able to use the library computer to fill out an application for a job at Target. Isaac was able to encourage Gera to put God first and seek His blessing by getting married and putting Him first in their lives. This couple needs our prayers for a job and direction. On Saturday Danny, Tom, Daniel and Marilyn brought them furniture that Ilka gave to us. We had a good time of fellowship with them. They are very grateful and are in need of an air conditioner right now if you have one. On the right is Daniel with Jaiquin (saved baby) and Arnaz (his brother). We brought them furniture too. Their mom Britney needs a job. They can also use a fan for their apartment. Thanks.
Here is the Gordon family. Hannah (13), Marilyn’s godchild, graduated from 8th grade at St Ann’s School in Black Rock, Bridgeport on June 8. She is an honor student and received many awards, we are so proud of her. We met her mom Farah many years ago when she was pregnant with Samantha (now 20) who is between Marilyn and Hannah in the photo. We have been very close to this family for twenty-one years. They are a Christian family and have seven beautiful children!
This is Shaylah, a mom that loves the Lord and her son AJ, a saved baby who is now two years old. She graduated from Hillhouse High School in New Haven on June 19 as valedictorian of her class. She received a full scholarship to a college.
On Tuesday June 12 one of the old doormen from Summit approached Carmen and asked if she remembered him. He reminded her that we helped him
find a job ten years ago as a chef at Burger King. Marshall was with his sixteen year old son Isaiah. He was willing to let the new door man know that we helped him find a job back then and that he was happy that he was able to quit his job at Summit! We have seen so many doormen quit because of the power of
prayer. God always answers our prayers!! PTL
We just found out that the Summit gives out pills for medical abortions between 8 AM- 1 PM on the days they are open. Please pray that God will close this death camp down! .
One of the moms we helped years ago is now a patrol officer. She just called us to disciple a young lady that wants to turn her life around. Please pray for Toni. Nancy and Jennie are working with her at Lighthouse Church, Bridgeport.
This is Terry Helfrich in the middle with Ilka and Bob. She is having heart surgery on July 10 at Bridgeport Hospital. Please keep her in your prayers. She adopted five children and comes out to the mill every week to pray and give her testimony. She is a lovely lady.
This is Maria, another mom we help out that comes to visit us at the Summit. On the right is Javen, Daisy’s baby, another child spared from death at the mill.
Hundreds of pro-life Christians came out on June 8th to the New Haven green to stand up for religious freedom. This was a nationwide rally held at many sites in all the states. Above is Danny, Vinny, Marilyn, Carmen and Pam.

This is Brenda with the “miracle” twins born on April 25th, 2012. Baby Jaden weighed 4.3 pounds and baby Jada 3.10 pounds at birth. They only had to stay in the hospital two weeks even though they were born two months early. God blessed these precious little ones with good health. PTL! Please pray for this family of 8 children. When the twins get bigger the parents want to come to church. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of children! (Psalm 127)
This is Kelly and Deonte (14). He is one of the babies saved at Summit
who attended the bible club concert at the high school were Kelly is a teacher.
Many of high school students attended the spirit lead concert and many of the
students rededicated their lives to Christ including Deonte! Please continue to
pray for him.
Carmen, Brenda, Danny and Marilyn met up with other OSA people from around the country to bring the truth of the Gospel to Jackson Hole, Wyoming May 15-19th. We brought the truth through the Gospel and are hoping that Wyoming will become one of the first abortion free states. We were able to publicly read the whole word of God the days we were out there on the streets. We also went to the high school every morning with signs and literature. We had many witnessing opportunities and more and more people are learning what God’s word says about killing babies. There are five states (Wyoming, Arkansas, Mississippi, South Dakota, North Dakota) we are addressing that have only one free standing surgical business. Please keep this in your prayers. www.statesofrefuge.org
Here is Shaylah, AJ’s mom who changed her mind at PPNH a couple of years ago. She will be moving with her son to Pennsylvania to live at Wilson College. She got a full scholarship; she is valedictorian of her senior class at Hillhouse High School. We are very proud of Shaylah, her love for the Lord has helped her to overcome difficult situations in her life.
“Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.” Psalm 31:24
This is Frances, we met her last month when she changed her mind and decided to keep her baby. She is a lovely young lady and has three sons (5yr,2yr, 4months) and a baby in her womb. She recently moved into a new apartment and needed a bed and dressers that we were able to supply. She is very appreciative for the diapers and clothes and feels better knowing we will be there for her. She wants to come to church and a couple of people have volunteered to give her a ride. Please pray for her salvation and for her work schedule to open up for the right days and times. She told me she has been praying to God and I encouraged her to read the Bible we gave her.

20" long at Bridgeport Hospital. Her parents are very supportive helping her with the baby! We also had a baby boy born at St. Mary's Hospital in Waterbury on 4/19/12. His name is Javen and he was
4 lbs. 4oz. He was in ICU with a few complications and now he is doing much better. Pray for this baby boy and his mother and father who need Christ! Nina had her twins 4/25/12. Praise Jesus for Jayden and Jayda!! Nina is doing great; both babies are perfectly fine and breathing on their own!! Baby boy weighed 4lbs.3oz. and the girl 3lbs.10oz. To God be the glory for the great things He has done!!!!
We celebrated her precious life with her family and friends.
his grandma now attends church at Promiseland Church every Sunday. These two young men
were babies saved from this ministry and are growing in Christ! We give God all the glory for all that He is doing in their lives.
This is Ariceli (a single mom) and her two boys. They are in desperate need of beds and household goods for their apartment. She has been living with her sister for six years and now she needs to move on her own. We always tell the women going into Summit that we will help them with their needs so that they would choose life for their baby! Now this mom has needs and we want to keep our promise. Please if you have any items in your home that you are not using and are in good conditions please donate items for this mom. (dishes, pots, silverware, curtains, blankets, coach, lamps, etc.)
She is a Christian. You can contact Carmen at 203-507-2910.Thank you!
Daniel speaks on the microphone at the Summit and talks to clients going into the abortion mill. It’s amazing how this little boy can see what’s going on out here and adults cant. Where is the church of Jesus Christ while these babies are being led to slaughter?
Proverbs 24:10-12 If you fail under pressure, your strength is too small. Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to die; save them as they stagger to their death. Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.” For God understands all hearts, and he sees you. He who guards your soul knows you knew. He will repay all people as their actions deserve.
Daniel and Ilka were able to pray for her and minister to her. God is so good!

This is Brenda with one of the pro-life moms that is having twins in May. These are her beautiful
children (one stayed at home). They attended the bible study at Ron and Brenda's home on Tuesday
3/27/12. They asked for prayer for their relationship with the Lord and for their unborn twins. They
plan to go to church on Easter Sunday at Promise Land Church in West Haven. Please pray for this
couple to get saved! One thing about the pro-life ministry, not only do you save a baby’s life but you also bring salvation to the WHOLE family! To God be the glory!!
(This mom need doubles of everything for their twins (boy & girl). If you can help please let us know!)
This is Jaiquin (a saved baby). It was his first birthday on Tuesday March 27th. Danny and Marilyn went to visit and bring presents to celebrate his precious life. Please keep his mom, Brittany, in prayer for salvation and for a job.
In the month of March two moms changed their minds at Planned Parenthood, New Haven.
One of these moms changed her mind after seeing her ultra-sound and came over to us for help.
This mom lost her condo and had no place to stay. We were able to get her and her husband
into the shelter home in Bridgeport, since the shelter knew us. This mother admitted that she had nine abortions in the past and she could not kill this baby after seeing us outside PP. They are attending a church in Bridgeport and her husband was offered a full-time job in Shelton. He started work this past Monday and they are excited that they can start looking for an apartment in a few weeks. This is God's hand at work! We are so happy for what God is doing in their lives! Please keep them in your prayers.
The second mom was a teenager (18). Her mother spoke with Carmen and was very distraught that her daughter was having the abortion without her consent. She called Carmen and asked her to call her daughter and talk to her about our ministry and all the resources we have for young mothers that are pregnant. Thank God her daughter answered her cell phone and talked for one hour and agreed to have her baby! She came to church with her mother two Sundays in a row (Promise Land Church). She called for information on "parenting" classes. St. Raphael's Hospital will help her with classes before and after she has her baby. In all the years of doing ministry this is the first time a teen mom has called to inquire about parenting classes! Thank God she wants to be a good mommy! Please pray for her salvation!
This is Shaylah. When Marilyn and Colbi met her at Planned Parenthood years ago going into the mill with her boyfriend she was fifteen years old. Now she is seventeen and the valedictorian at Hillhouse High School. Her little boy AJ will be two in August. Shaylah is getting a full scholarship to college. She is considering schools in Pennsylvania and Ohio. The best thing about this is she can bring her son with her. These schools have a mother/child resident program. Shaylah has given her life to Christ and stays very busy with her son and school. Please keep her in your prayers.
Vinny, Stan Scott, and Carmen attended the rally in front of the Federal Court Building on Friday,
3/23/12 on "Stand Up for Religious Freedom" to stop the Obama HHS unconstitutional mandate. There
were approximately 150 people at the court and many others around the country that attended a rally in their State to send a message to President Obama.
In January, the US Department of Health and Human Services(HHS) issued a mandate under the Affordable Care Act (also known as "Obamacare") that requires all employer health plans to provide free contraceptive, sterilizations and abortion-inducing drugs, regardless of any moral or religious objections.
The ministries of institutions like Christian and Catholic schools, hospitals and charities will be forced
to provide services that contradict the teachings of their faith. More alarmingly, the federal government
is claiming the right to decide for religious institutions what constitutes their ministry.
There were many people that spoke including two students from Yale University. The Declaration of
Independence of the United States was read and many came up and prayed for our country. Rights
are bestowed by God, not by government. We all need to know the signs of the times and take a stand.

"For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother's womb...My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." Psalm 139:13,15,16
Here's Daniel with one of the saved babies we went to visit on Friday, she is now 10 weeks old. We brought her diapers, a swing, a bouncy seat, etc. We could not do this without the support of those that help us with the needs of the families. THANK YOU! This is Brenda and the mother that had her miracle baby girl 5 lbs., 8 oz. on Saturday (2/25/12). During her sixteen hours of induced labor Brenda stood by her side at the hospital. This mother has a very serious kidney infection and might need surgery to have it removed. The baby was sent home with Brenda and the baby's father is taking care of their 5 boys in a shelter. Aurelia named her baby girl after Brenda, since she has been there for her through thick and thin in the last four years. She knows she can count on Brenda for spiritual and physical support. Please pray for this mother for a speedy recovery, a job for the dad and housing and salvation for their family. We are so proud of Brenda and how God is using her in this ministry. She is a faithful sidewalk counselor and she goes beyond the call.
"Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren you have done it unto me." Matthew 25; 40
This is one of the teen moms with her mother and boyfriend at the baby shower on 2/18/12. She is due 3/28/12 and they are so happy! The mom (17) and dad (18) will be graduating from high school in June. Please pray for this young couple!
“This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to His voice, and hold fast to Him.” Deuteronomy 30:19
We were blessed to have our brother John Reyes come visit from Pennsylvania. He lives and works there as a teacher/counselor for Teen Challenge. He came out on the streets with us and preached his heart out. He brought three of his four adorable children with him to his mom’s house in CT. It was so good to fellowship with him and remember the days back in the early nineties when Anthony first invited John to our church and he was saved and became a part of our pro-life ministry. PTL!

The saints from Pastor Burgos’s Church (God's Victorious Army) have been coming out on the frontlines to save lives and souls for Jesus. Some of them even made their own signs! This is the church OSA-CT visited last month and we are happy to report that they are following through with their commitments to take a public stand for Jesus and the precious babies He created in His image. Welcome to Heather, Jason, Carlos, Yvonne, Margie and Meagan from GVA and Ilka from Milford. Praise the Lord we can use some new fresh warriors out on the streets.
"Stay always within the boundaries where God's love can reach and bless you. Wait patiently for the eternal life that our Lord Jesus Christ in his mercy is going to give you. Try to help those who argue against you. Be merciful to those who doubt. Save some by snatching them as from the very flames of hell itself. And as for others, help them to find the Lord by being kind to them, but be careful that you yourselves aren't pulled along into their sins. Hate every trace of their sin while being merciful to them as sinners." Jude 21-23
Please do not support those who enable baby killers to stay in business.

"How long will the wicked, O Lord, how long will the wicked be jubilant?" Psalm 94:3
On Saturday, 2/25/12 we had an ex clinic worker that stopped by Summit to let us know she is now a Christian and was so sorry for all the babies that died when she was there. She was crying in her car. She said her job there was prepping the moms for surgery! She is having her first grandchild this year and now prays for all the babies that are murdered every week at Summit. I encouraged her to come out and share her experience with the moms going in and the workers that are on staff.
"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the words of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death." (Rev. 12; 11)
Kelly Vazquez invited one of her high school students to church on Sunday and she made a decision that she needed Christ in her life! Kelly noticed this student was having a hard time in school with depression, being withdrawn and never wanting to talk. Kelly kept praying for her and eventually she opened up to Kelly about her abortion she had months ago. She is now going for counseling with Hopeline and started going to a bible study to help her grow in Christ! Another young student (15 yrs. old) attended church a few week ago and gave her life to the Lord. She is reading her new bible and is excited about going to youth group on Friday nights. Thank you God's Victorious Army Church for helping!

Brodie and Alex (Auriela's baby saved 3 yrs ago) Auriela and Brenda
Stories from Brenda Rutherford:
This is Aurelia. Wendee and I met her three years ago at Planned Parenthood, where her son was scheduled to die through a horrific abortion. Praise God this mom chose life for her baby! Along the way our ministry has helped this family a great deal with their needs and shared the saving gospel of Jesus Christ with them all. I was blessed to be a part of Aurelia's pregnancy and the birth of this precious little boy named Alex! He is now a happy, energetic 2 1/2 year old! Aurelia and her boyfriend, Alejandro along with their five children recently moved back to CT from a two year stay in PA. They are currently staying in a temporary shelter. Aurelia is eight months pregnant and suffers from a serious disease and is in and out of the hospital often. After years of prayers for this family they are have been attending church with me for the past month. God is answering our prayers! The other day the boyfriend, Alejandro called my pastor (Hector) at the wee hours of the morning to tell him that Jesus had woke him telling him to get his and Aurelia's life right and start cleaning house! Please continue to pray for them and their salvation! (Nancy said Brenda told her she was going into the hospital today,so pray for her please).
Back in November at Planned Parenthood, Pam and I spoke to a couple going in for an abortion. This was the couples third attempt. Each time they came they saw us and were convicted, left and rescheduled for the following week. On their third visit Pam and I had an opportunity to speak with Nina and her boyfriend Amando. Amando was crying and expressed he did not want her to abort! We told them we could help. We gave them literature, showed them pictures of their developing baby and prayed for them to let their baby live. They decided to go home! Pam and I have visited them several times with diapers, wipes , clothes and most important we shared Jesus with them, they were both very open to listening. We left bibles, Mark Cahill books along with the 180 DVD and Eclipse of Reason. Nina and Amando have six other children ranging from 1-15 years old. At Nina's last recent Dr's appointment the ultrasound revealed........TWO heartbeats, that's right...TWINS! A boy and a girl!!!!
I met Michelle, a 17 year old going into Planned Parenthood this past Saturday for a pregnancy test. Colbi and I spent time talking to her about Jesus , gave her literature. She said she attends church regularly. We offered to take her home and get a pregnancy test, she refused and went in for her appointment. Michelle called later that day to tell me she was pregnant, scared and needed help! She also told her mom she was pregnant, who is a Christian, who told her that "abortion was not an option, that it's murder!!" Her mom told her she would help her also. Sadly Michelle called me yesterday to tell me she went to the Dr and was miscarrying the baby. We prayed and talked a lot, she opened up about her life. I told her she needs to repent of her ways and surrender her life to Christ. She wants to keep in contact, and come next week to my house for bible study. Pray for Michelle and her salvation!!
Here are some pictures of us on the streets, on the left is a man that brought his sister here to interpret.
Stories from Carmen Vazquez:
A few weeks ago Marilyn and I spoke at a church in Bridgeport about abortion and what we do to help women in the ministry. We were able to show the "180" DVD and the video Hard Truth. The Holy Spirit touched many of the people that night and most of them signed-up to join us on the front lines at Summit Center,intercede for those entering the mill. A few days later I received a phone call from a woman. She was very depressed because she had several abortions. She told me that her daughter-in-law had brought home information we gave out at this church. I began to counsel her over the phone and she was crying and telling me how she was tormented thinking about what she had done years ago and wanted to know if I had any help. She wasn't saved and didn't attend church. I was able to share with her the love of Christ and all that He had done for her on the cross. She repented over the phone of all her sins and for murdering her babies. She accepted Christ and made Him Lord over her life! She said she felt chills after she prayed and a burden lifted off her. I encouraged her to attend church with her daughter-in-law and she did. I had her make an appointment with Sylvia from Hopeline were they counsel women with post abortion syndrome along with a bible study. She went to her first counseling session and bible study this pass week and she sounded so much better. She shared with me that she is able to sleep better at night. Women are never the same after an abortion. That is why we need to reach out to these women that are hurting in the church with post abortion syndrome. They are afraid to tell anyone. Let us pray for these women to open up and reach out for help. We care about them too!
One of the moms that changed her mind nineteen years ago came to visit us at the mill with her family. Afterward we had breakfast and great fellowship.They are attending a Christian Church every Sunday and we encouraged them to get married. We know that "obedience is better than sacrifice". Please pray for this beautiful family! They are so thankful for all the help they have received from this ministry and they continue to let us know how grateful they are to God for all He has done in their lives!
Victoria and Vilma (Calvary Life) Yvette and her daughter (6 months old)
Another day a woman walked by and Carmen starting talking to her. She wasn't going into the mill but asked for prayer that she would get pregnant. Carmen asked her if she was married and she said she was not. So Carmen said "You should get married first, then we will pray that God blesses you with a baby!"
"Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
We thank God that two security guards have left the killing center recently! (Alan & Joe) We pray that God will bless them in their new jobs! We have another security guard now so please pray for his conviction too. Working at a death camp is sin and their checks are signed with the innocent blood of little boys and girls that did not choose to die. These precious little children are created in the image of God. We are also grateful for some new soldiers joining us out on the frontline: Vilma, Victoria and Heather. We welcome you. Like )Pastor Ed Martin said "If one person stands at death's door and recruits just one person, we now have the POWER OF TWO. If both of these people recruit another person to stand at death's door, we have the POWER OF FOUR. Again, if these four people recruit another person, we have the POWER OF EIGHT, the POWER OF SIXTEEN and so on until the TRUE POWER OF THE CHURCH STANDING IN THE POWER OF THOUSANDS. BUT IT ALL STARTS WITH THE POWER OF ONE."
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preservers." 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
So please join us as we reach out to those who find themselves where they should not be! (3787 Main St. Bpt. Tues. Fri. Sat. 8 AM- 10 AM) Jesus is the head of the Church. We are His body. We are His mouthpiece, His Hands, His feet. If not us, then who? If not now? Then When:? If not here, then where? Please... just show up and see what God will do. It is such an awesome privilege to co-labor with Him! (the Lord of Lord and King of Kings)

baby equipment that she needed. We thank God for all those who contribute to this ministry
so that we can meet the needs of these moms!! The baby's father could not stop thanking us for
all the help that was provided. Our next step is going to disciple them for Christ and find a
Spanish church in their area."He who gives to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will reward him for what he has done." Proverbs 19:17
We are so proud of Dominique and her baby King that is now 1 1/2 yrs. old and potty trained already!
She is a wonderful mother and the baby's father Lou is helping her immensely since she is going to
college to finish her degree.She spoke at the Memorial Service on Saturday and she has grown so much
in Christ! I have been mentoring her and Lou through their difficulties during her pregnancy and after. She
is a very happy mother and wants to help young people to stay abstinence till marriage. She has learned a
valuable lesson and she wants to share it with others! We are so proud of her and wishing her God's
blessing on her studies!

Here is Cameron and Daniel and a girl holding signs for life.
We had a Roe V Wade Memorial remembering the 39 years of baby killing in our community and in our nation. The mounted police were there to keep everyone safe. There were between 150-200 for the pro-life event and four for the pro-abortion side. Al Vazquez was the emcee, Pastor Victor Ronquillo from my church, Calvary Life, did the worship. We had a bagpiper lead the funeral procession and Kelly, Hannah, Daniel and Kameron were the pallbearers. We had many pastors present, three spoke (Miller, Loomer, Ronquillo). We also had state senator TR Rowe, Attorney Michael DePrimo and keynote speaker Peter Wolfgang from the CT Family Institute. Amber Trawick, children's ministry leader from Promiseland Church in West Haven gave an exhortation. Kelly Vazquez and Colbi Rowland gave testimony to how being in this ministry has greatly affected their lives for the glory of God. Dominique gave an awesome testimomy too! All the speakers were great and we are so appreciative that they took time to come out and lift up the gospel of Jesus Christ and share what is going on in pro-life in their area of expertise. The weather was pretty good compared to years past when we froze.

The Roe v. Wade Memorial Service scheduled for tomorrow has been changed to January 28, 2012 due to weather conditions. Hope to see you then as we honor those precious children who lost their lives from abortions being legal over 39 years ago.
OSA-CT: Two babies born in the New Year 2012
2185 babies saved since 1990.
Maria (34 years old) who had a baby girl on Wednesday January 4th at Bridgeport Hospital.Her healthy daughter weighs 8 lbs. 2 oz. and is 20 1/2" long.Her name is Rebecca. Maria had a very difficult pregnancy. She had lots of bleeding and they had to do a C-section. This is her 4th child. She didn't have health insurance or pre-natal care. We were able to send her to Healthy Start and she was able to receive care for the last 4 months of her pregnancy. Maria was so happy that her baby was so healthy when she was born. She was so excited that she called all her family and friends about "miracle baby". She was thanking God!
"Just as the body with out the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead." James 2:26
This is Maria's daughter Esther (1 yrs old) and the baby's father Juan.They are going through financial struggles. Al and Carmen prayed for him that his customer would pay him what they owe him for his handy work so he can pay his rent. He was so very grateful for all the baby equipment and baby layette for his miracle baby girl Rebecca! A couple from Promise Land Church donated all the equipment (playpen, highchair, stroller and swing). They are happy that they can use the items for both the girls. We gave him a book from Mark Cahill in Spanish "One Heart Beat Away". He said that he plans to read it! PTL
Alma had her third son on January 5th at Bridgeport Hospital. The healthy son weighs 9 lbs. 6 oz. and his name is Richard. When Brenda and Carmen were visiting Maria with her baby girl on Thursday, Alma was being wheeled into the room next door! It was so exciting that God put these two moms right next to each other and we were able to celebrate with both of them. God is so good. To God be the glory!
"I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth." Romans 1:16
On Tuesday (left) we were all talking to a man Nicholas, he was an alcoholic that wanted to be set free and surrender his life to Christ. We prayed with him and he received Jesus as his Lord and Savior! Please keep him in your prayers. He is a sweet precious man that wants to go back to his family and take care of his children.
On Saturday morning we all went to the mill and there were only two staff cars in the lot so we left and went to breakfast and came back at ten and Bob told us about six moms went in to so we ended up staying there till one o'clock and sixteen moms went in. They switched the hours. I will post it on Facebook (OSA Connecticut or Marilyn Danny Carroll) or email when we know of schedule changes.
Please don't forget our annual Roe V Wade Memorial is scheduled for Saturday January 21st at 8:30 AM. We have Peter Wolfgang from CT Family Institute as our keynote speaker, (see him debating Dick Blumenthal on YouTube www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTxH8MEL1X0 ). Other speakers will be TR Rowe, Attorney Michael DePrimo and clergy. We will have the mounted police on the premises, live worship from Pastor Victor of Calvary Life Christian Center and a funeral procession to remember the 60 million babies killed since the notorious Roe V Wade law was passed in 1973.
Please come out to the streets, we are there every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. This is a harvest field, a methadone clinic and bus stop are right there. We get to pass out so much gospel literature, tracts, bibles and books. People from the methadone clinic have come to be our friends. They know where to come for prayer. Some have gotten off the drug or are in the process. Join us as we reach out to those who find themselves where they should not be. We are the body of Christ . He is the head, we are His mouthpiece, His hands, His feet. Just show up and see what he will do!
"They were judged everyone of them according to their deeds...and if anyone's name was not written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire." Revelation 20:13-14
