I'm here with Daniel Parks. 7 00:00:40.530 --> 00:00:47.609 Daniel is in a new place. He's in the land of Golden Opportunity, 8 00:00:47.770 --> 00:00:52.119 right, you're in California, yeah, or the land of fruits and nuts. 9 00:00:52.320 --> 00:00:57.240 They well, that too. And and I'm in North Carolina. So 10 00:00:57.439 --> 00:01:02.479 we are. We're recording remotely from each other, yes, and but we 11 00:01:02.920 --> 00:01:06.950 we do intend to continue with our podcast. Daniel will be out there for 12 00:01:07.109 --> 00:01:10.670 what three? Three months at this point, is what the remberk is. 13 00:01:11.310 --> 00:01:18.189 Okay. Yeah, and and you are out there working with our national missionaries. 14 00:01:18.620 --> 00:01:23.099 And, yeah, just California. And encourage those who are out here 15 00:01:23.180 --> 00:01:26.819 who are love life missionaries. They're doing the work. I want to support 16 00:01:26.980 --> 00:01:30.019 them and encourage them. Some of these people, all of these people, 17 00:01:30.019 --> 00:01:34.170 are brand new to this ministry and there's a lot of work to be done 18 00:01:34.209 --> 00:01:37.689 here. It just right. Guys, know, my voice is is terrible. 19 00:01:37.689 --> 00:01:42.609 I'm dealing with some allergy stuff. Yeah, and I'd hope coming out 20 00:01:42.650 --> 00:01:46.049 to California would change that, but apparently not. Seems like it. Yeah, 21 00:01:46.129 --> 00:01:49.599 a little worse. Yeah, my God's graceful make it through this and 22 00:01:51.000 --> 00:01:53.239 we really feel like these podcasts are important. We get a lot of feedback 23 00:01:53.280 --> 00:01:59.200 from people, from our missionaries. They're encouraged. We touch on subjects that 24 00:01:59.519 --> 00:02:04.909 seem to be so timely. Like we are podcast about what to do when 25 00:02:04.909 --> 00:02:07.949 an ambulance shows up and I get an email like the next day from one 26 00:02:07.990 --> 00:02:14.389 of our one of the local volunteers here in Riverside. Right, like an 27 00:02:14.469 --> 00:02:19.939 ambulance just showed up yesterday and you know, what you've shared was really helpful. 28 00:02:19.939 --> 00:02:23.180 Also, I got an email from somebody, I think in Florida, 29 00:02:23.219 --> 00:02:28.259 who had the same thing around the same time. And Yeah, just actually 30 00:02:28.300 --> 00:02:31.889 had an interaction with a counselor or a missionary is dealing with a woman that's 31 00:02:31.930 --> 00:02:36.849 going through miscarriage and we just put out that last yeah, exactly. That 32 00:02:36.930 --> 00:02:39.610 happened to me also this past week. Someone that one of the missionaries said 33 00:02:39.650 --> 00:02:44.210 she was going through that and I was able to point them to that podcast. 34 00:02:44.400 --> 00:02:50.159 So it is amazing how God kind of nudges us to to do a 35 00:02:50.280 --> 00:02:54.599 subject and and sometimes you all not just and that's how we decide what to 36 00:02:55.560 --> 00:03:01.150 what to do a podcast about. That's the way it's actually okay, struggling 37 00:03:01.229 --> 00:03:05.270 through with my voice and you get struggling through to listen to my voice, 38 00:03:05.310 --> 00:03:08.189 as terrible as it sounds. It's worth it's worth it to us. Yeah, 39 00:03:08.270 --> 00:03:15.340 and even though through many dangerous toils and snares we record the PODCAST, 40 00:03:15.340 --> 00:03:20.060 it's worth it. So right, yeah, you guys that are listening, 41 00:03:20.139 --> 00:03:24.340 you're worth it. In the Gospel going forth is worth it and babies being 42 00:03:24.460 --> 00:03:29.610 saved, mom's lobs be an impact, impacted. It's worth it, guys. 43 00:03:29.770 --> 00:03:34.449 So would encourage you and we hope this blessing, or this episode will 44 00:03:34.490 --> 00:03:37.490 be a blessing to you guys. Right, right. And this episode, 45 00:03:37.569 --> 00:03:44.599 like so many of them, came about because someone mentioned it mentioned a situation 46 00:03:44.919 --> 00:03:51.400 where a service provider had come up to the abortion center and they were curious 47 00:03:51.439 --> 00:03:54.870 about all. What do you do? What do you say? And we're 48 00:03:54.909 --> 00:04:00.909 always so careful to train our volunteers that keep your focus your ministry is the 49 00:04:00.990 --> 00:04:06.069 unborn child and that that Mama, because she has a life or death decision 50 00:04:06.189 --> 00:04:11.020 to make and one way or another, by the end of the day, 51 00:04:11.099 --> 00:04:14.659 that child see the going to be alive or dead based on that mother's decision. 52 00:04:15.620 --> 00:04:21.500 So that's our ministry focus, but that doesn't mean that we ignore that 53 00:04:21.699 --> 00:04:28.850 are in the vicinity or even something that you would think maybe we would be 54 00:04:29.490 --> 00:04:32.209 not as useful to interact with, such as the service providers, and by 55 00:04:32.250 --> 00:04:39.160 that I don't mean the abortion workers, but you know, the door people 56 00:04:39.600 --> 00:04:47.639 or the the person devel delivering Fedex, or are quite often the uber drivers, 57 00:04:47.920 --> 00:04:55.149 which we see frequently, Uber and tax taxi drivers. So we see 58 00:04:55.189 --> 00:05:00.310 them all the time. And the way that that we wanted to talk about 59 00:05:00.310 --> 00:05:06.459 this podcast is telling some stories. Stories are so powerful and we've developed just 60 00:05:06.620 --> 00:05:12.420 a smattering of these are true stories of things that have happened mostly within the 61 00:05:12.459 --> 00:05:15.420 past year, some of them very recently. One of them happened just just 62 00:05:15.980 --> 00:05:23.290 last week or the week before, of whereas service provider and our interactions with 63 00:05:23.449 --> 00:05:28.250 them led to a baby being saved, and that is not infrequent, and 64 00:05:29.050 --> 00:05:32.449 that that's kind of the Lord does in these situations. Yeah, yeah, 65 00:05:32.649 --> 00:05:36.879 so the the you know, the very first point is, of course they 66 00:05:36.959 --> 00:05:41.279 focused on on your mission field. If you see a mom going in, 67 00:05:41.480 --> 00:05:46.759 she's she is your focus. Now, if it's in Uber or a taxi 68 00:05:46.800 --> 00:05:51.230 driver coming in, they're often transporting a mom. So your interaction with them 69 00:05:51.750 --> 00:05:56.790 is going to be heard by the mother and that is still keeping your ministry 70 00:05:56.870 --> 00:06:00.790 focus. But be careful about being so sidetracked like think. You know, 71 00:06:00.829 --> 00:06:03.620 I got to talk to every service person that comes in that maybe you're missing 72 00:06:03.740 --> 00:06:09.259 MOMS. That would not be appropriate. Yeah, but the one that happened 73 00:06:09.339 --> 00:06:14.540 recently, I was not a part of this story. I was actually in 74 00:06:14.579 --> 00:06:17.930 the office when the councilor came in and told me about this story. But 75 00:06:18.209 --> 00:06:26.329 a taxi driver with a Hispanic couple in the back seat was driving slowly down 76 00:06:26.329 --> 00:06:30.769 the street. The driver stopped as a taxi driver and he stopped. I 77 00:06:30.810 --> 00:06:36.000 think was a he, and the conclor that that he stopped for was actually 78 00:06:36.040 --> 00:06:41.120 one of our brand new councilors and she is really only on the sidewalk a 79 00:06:41.160 --> 00:06:45.079 few weeks and I'm sure she didn't feel like she knew what to say. 80 00:06:45.120 --> 00:06:48.310 I remember what it was like when I was brand new like that. But 81 00:06:48.509 --> 00:06:54.069 the first thing she said, and I think you'll notice this trend in all 82 00:06:54.110 --> 00:06:59.110 of the stories, is did you know that this is an abortion center? 83 00:06:59.189 --> 00:07:03.500 Yeah, yeah, that's something we had to keep in mind because these uber 84 00:07:03.540 --> 00:07:09.420 drivers quite often, like probably ninety nine point nine percent of the time, 85 00:07:09.779 --> 00:07:14.740 have no clue. They're just they gotta message on their phone. I don't 86 00:07:14.740 --> 00:07:16.529 know exactly how Uber Works, except for it's an APP and all of that, 87 00:07:16.610 --> 00:07:20.370 and they get anifications and I want to be picked up and then they 88 00:07:20.410 --> 00:07:23.889 want to be picked up here and they want to be taken there. It 89 00:07:23.970 --> 00:07:26.610 doesn't tell them they want to be taken to the abortion clinic, you know 90 00:07:26.649 --> 00:07:30.079 right, and and it doesn't say probably not going to share that information either, 91 00:07:30.240 --> 00:07:31.959 you know, when she gets into the Uber. That's right, that's 92 00:07:31.959 --> 00:07:35.480 right. If I they sometimes do tell me they know they're at a clinic, 93 00:07:35.639 --> 00:07:39.600 that they're coming to a preferred woman's health center, but that hardly says 94 00:07:39.639 --> 00:07:44.470 abortion anywhere on it. And but they are, I would say, most 95 00:07:44.509 --> 00:07:47.790 of the time, shocked. Most of the time they are shocked. No, 96 00:07:48.509 --> 00:07:53.110 I didn't know that. So that was the first thing that this just 97 00:07:53.269 --> 00:07:58.860 very intuitive counselor she did the exact right thing, asked the exact correct first 98 00:07:58.899 --> 00:08:03.019 question. Did you know this is an abortion center? Yeah, and the 99 00:08:03.139 --> 00:08:09.459 driver said he did not, and he instantly glanced in his rearview mirror at 100 00:08:09.500 --> 00:08:13.050 the Hispanic couple. Now they did not speak any English, from what I 101 00:08:13.209 --> 00:08:16.529 understand, and he was the uber driver because he was also Hispanic. He 102 00:08:18.009 --> 00:08:22.449 spoke Spanish, and so a lot of what transpired we don't know what he 103 00:08:22.529 --> 00:08:28.879 said because he's speaking in Spanish to the couple, but he's clearly distraught as 104 00:08:28.920 --> 00:08:33.200 as he looks in the rearview mirror and and the the couple in the back 105 00:08:33.200 --> 00:08:37.279 kind of squirm and he asks them in Spanish if they knew that they were 106 00:08:37.360 --> 00:08:45.789 going to an abortion center. And my guess is what transpired was that yes, 107 00:08:45.950 --> 00:08:52.110 obviously they knew, and there was an argument that that ensues between the 108 00:08:52.590 --> 00:08:56.940 taxi driver and the couple in the back seat and are again, are very 109 00:08:58.059 --> 00:09:03.820 smart. Counselor handed them the literature and also, I believe, got Spanish 110 00:09:03.899 --> 00:09:09.700 literature into their hands to the taxi driver, who instantly gave it to the 111 00:09:09.820 --> 00:09:15.649 couple and and she explains to the taxi driver, who is bilingual, he 112 00:09:15.730 --> 00:09:20.090 was able to speak English. She explained, well, this is an abortion 113 00:09:20.330 --> 00:09:24.559 center. And do you believe in God? The number to question that, 114 00:09:24.720 --> 00:09:28.120 I think, would become on the tails of that first question. Yeah, 115 00:09:28.320 --> 00:09:33.240 absolutely. Yeah, and it turns out he did. And as soon as 116 00:09:33.279 --> 00:09:41.470 someone says yes, you the doors wide open for you to say, well, 117 00:09:41.549 --> 00:09:48.470 you're you know, you're fair. Is being paid in part by by 118 00:09:48.590 --> 00:09:52.659 someone or it's being paid by someone who is here to kill their baby. 119 00:09:54.620 --> 00:10:00.019 And and you know, when you take business that brings you into a place 120 00:10:00.059 --> 00:10:05.820 where babies are being murdered, then you're complicit. And I don't know if 121 00:10:05.820 --> 00:10:09.610 she said exactly those words again, I wasn't there, but something along those 122 00:10:09.649 --> 00:10:16.210 lines, saying you don't want to be pulling into this place with that. 123 00:10:16.450 --> 00:10:20.730 You know, I think we we have to be careful not to come across 124 00:10:20.769 --> 00:10:22.799 as like, you know, we're condemning them, we're kind of lumping them 125 00:10:22.919 --> 00:10:26.559 in with the mom that's they're to kill her baby or with the abortion clinic. 126 00:10:26.639 --> 00:10:30.320 And Right, they're not working for the abortion clinic. Yeah, so 127 00:10:30.399 --> 00:10:33.799 I think there's a there's a balance there. Again, these people don't know 128 00:10:33.399 --> 00:10:37.110 that they're coming. They're bringing someone to an abortion clinic. Yeah, but 129 00:10:37.230 --> 00:10:41.590 the fact is they are bringing someone to an abortion clinic, right. I 130 00:10:41.710 --> 00:10:43.549 mean, you can think of a few analogies. You know, if you're 131 00:10:45.750 --> 00:10:48.870 in Nazi Germany and somebody's telling you to drive a truck and you don't realize 132 00:10:48.909 --> 00:10:52.580 you got Jews in the back of it and you're taking them to, you 133 00:10:52.700 --> 00:10:56.179 know, Nazi death camp, you don't know, you don't know what you 134 00:10:56.259 --> 00:11:00.019 don't know and you're not guilty until you find out. Right, and you 135 00:11:00.539 --> 00:11:03.179 now you realize halfway down the road there's some Jews in the back and, 136 00:11:03.809 --> 00:11:07.250 yeah, you've got a choice to make. You're going to keep driving the 137 00:11:07.330 --> 00:11:09.450 truck to the destination or are you going to stop and say I'm not going 138 00:11:09.450 --> 00:11:13.610 to be a part of this? That's right. You know, I think 139 00:11:13.649 --> 00:11:18.210 that's that's a good analogy maybe for this scenario. But again we have to 140 00:11:18.250 --> 00:11:20.919 be careful. Like again, these people don't know, so we're not going 141 00:11:20.960 --> 00:11:26.440 to condemn them for something they just don't know, but we are going to 142 00:11:26.480 --> 00:11:28.919 inform them so that they do know. And then again they've got a choice 143 00:11:28.960 --> 00:11:35.070 to making that moment. Yeah, and the council went on to share how 144 00:11:35.269 --> 00:11:39.590 we were going to be able to help the couple in the backseat and she 145 00:11:39.710 --> 00:11:43.669 asked them to the taxi driver to translate, which he did. So she 146 00:11:43.870 --> 00:11:48.220 listed the the resources, she talked about God, she talked about the development 147 00:11:48.259 --> 00:11:56.779 of the baby, and the driver said, I'm not going to I'm not 148 00:11:56.779 --> 00:11:58.700 going to drive them in there. He refused. He said I will not, 149 00:12:00.139 --> 00:12:01.690 I won't do it. Now, not all of them do that. 150 00:12:01.970 --> 00:12:05.009 Most of them don't do that, to tell you the truth, but this 151 00:12:05.289 --> 00:12:11.129 man took stand. He was not and the the couple in the back kind 152 00:12:11.129 --> 00:12:15.610 of threw up their hands and said fine, take us back to the hotel 153 00:12:16.120 --> 00:12:20.240 and we'll call you all to find out how you can help us. So 154 00:12:20.320 --> 00:12:24.200 it's grudging, apparently a little bit angry, but but they did. They 155 00:12:24.399 --> 00:12:28.840 the driver took them back to the hotel. He left. I don't know 156 00:12:28.879 --> 00:12:35.309 if they ever called our Spanish translator or not, but for sure that day 157 00:12:35.870 --> 00:12:41.509 that baby's life was reprieved because of the courageous stand of the taxi driver. 158 00:12:41.990 --> 00:12:43.779 And he wouldn't make that stand alone. He wouldn't have made it if he 159 00:12:43.940 --> 00:12:48.299 had read their picture, though, just so people understand, I like this 160 00:12:48.539 --> 00:12:52.820 is happening within like fifty feet of the abortion clinic. Right these people could 161 00:12:52.820 --> 00:12:56.740 have gotten out of the car and walked into the abortion clinic. They could 162 00:12:56.779 --> 00:12:58.090 have you know, they were captive in the car. It's not like, 163 00:12:58.690 --> 00:13:03.529 you know, they were miles away from the abortion clinic. They could have 164 00:13:03.409 --> 00:13:07.850 just gotten out. And I've seen that happen before. I've seen taxi drivers 165 00:13:07.929 --> 00:13:09.769 come. They refused to pull into the abortion clinic because, you know, 166 00:13:09.809 --> 00:13:13.919 they've stopped and when they found out they were not going to be complicit in 167 00:13:15.080 --> 00:13:16.960 this, in this whole thing, they can't do anything. They can't lock 168 00:13:18.000 --> 00:13:20.879 the doors and drive the people back to their you know where they picked them 169 00:13:20.879 --> 00:13:24.240 up at. So you know, I've seen people get out of the Uber 170 00:13:24.440 --> 00:13:26.549 or get out of the taxi and just walk into the abortion clinic. You 171 00:13:26.629 --> 00:13:30.029 know, at that point, I think you know the Uber driver, the 172 00:13:30.110 --> 00:13:35.710 taxi driver, has done all that they can do in this situation. It 173 00:13:35.750 --> 00:13:39.710 seems to me, as we say, these people are they're praying for a 174 00:13:39.909 --> 00:13:43.100 sign. It seems to me these people took their the interaction with the taxi 175 00:13:43.179 --> 00:13:46.340 driver, or it was an uber driver. Was An uber driver, this 176 00:13:46.419 --> 00:13:50.659 one was a taxi driver. I'm pretty sure they sort of took that interaction 177 00:13:50.700 --> 00:13:56.049 as a sign from the Lord that's right because again, if they really wanted 178 00:13:56.090 --> 00:13:58.009 to have the abortion, they could have gotten out of the taxi and went 179 00:13:58.049 --> 00:14:01.370 into the abortion clinic. They could have, and I think it illustrates another 180 00:14:01.450 --> 00:14:07.330 really important point that when we take a stand for righteousness, people notice and 181 00:14:07.850 --> 00:14:13.600 it can sometimes breathe courage into hearts that are wafering. Yeah, and I 182 00:14:13.720 --> 00:14:16.759 think that is part of what happened this this taxi driver was adamant. He 183 00:14:16.960 --> 00:14:20.480 wasn't going to drive in there. What they were about to do was wrong 184 00:14:20.440 --> 00:14:26.549 and and he was not going to back down from from what he knew was 185 00:14:26.950 --> 00:14:33.350 was right. So I think that's an encouragement for all of us that we 186 00:14:33.590 --> 00:14:37.740 need to stand firm on what we know is true and right and what what 187 00:14:37.980 --> 00:14:43.700 God would have us do. Yes here, speaking of encouragement. Yeah, 188 00:14:43.740 --> 00:14:46.860 the guy was a hero, absolute yeah, speaking of the word encouragement, 189 00:14:46.899 --> 00:14:50.500 you guys have heard me in the past talk about this. You know, 190 00:14:50.700 --> 00:14:54.769 to encourage someone is to put courage into them, and that's what we're doing 191 00:14:54.850 --> 00:14:58.529 in these situations. Like we're speaking to these the service people, these uber 192 00:14:58.529 --> 00:15:01.769 drivers especially, like Uber Drivers, taxi drivers, and we're speaking courage into 193 00:15:01.809 --> 00:15:05.970 them and saying you can do this, you can take a stand for life, 194 00:15:05.330 --> 00:15:09.159 you can speak to them, you can hand them this literature, because 195 00:15:09.279 --> 00:15:11.559 you know, often times when they do stop, it's not that they're rolling 196 00:15:11.600 --> 00:15:13.960 down the back window for us to talk to the person they have in the 197 00:15:15.000 --> 00:15:18.039 back right, they're rolling down their window. So we've really, you know, 198 00:15:18.159 --> 00:15:22.470 we've really got to speak to them and interact with them and encourage them, 199 00:15:22.629 --> 00:15:26.029 put courage into them that you can speak to the people that you have 200 00:15:26.149 --> 00:15:28.990 in the back of your car, you can give them this literature. So 201 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:31.950 please, please do that. And so when we're trying to put courage into 202 00:15:31.990 --> 00:15:37.620 them. Yeah, exactly. So the the second situation was similar. Was 203 00:15:37.659 --> 00:15:41.899 a Newberg driver this time, but, and I think it's a really important 204 00:15:43.019 --> 00:15:46.740 little story to tell, because he had already dropped the person off. Now 205 00:15:48.340 --> 00:15:50.730 when he stopped for me, I think again, I don't it might have 206 00:15:50.769 --> 00:15:54.769 been a woman. I think it was a man, but he dropped off 207 00:15:54.769 --> 00:15:58.090 a worker and the worker went in and I called out to the worker. 208 00:15:58.250 --> 00:16:04.399 The worker went in and the tendency, my tendency even, is get back 209 00:16:04.519 --> 00:16:08.960 to my mission and ignore the person coming out. He's already dropped the worker. 210 00:16:10.159 --> 00:16:11.440 What good is it going to do to. He's just an uber driver. 211 00:16:11.840 --> 00:16:15.159 Yeah, you know, he may never come here again, but I 212 00:16:15.200 --> 00:16:18.149 didn't that that time. I didn't. Sometimes I have. That time I 213 00:16:18.230 --> 00:16:22.870 didn't. He he pulled over, stopped for me and I started off with 214 00:16:22.990 --> 00:16:26.110 the same thing. Did you know this is an abortion center? And I 215 00:16:26.269 --> 00:16:30.389 think he might have known. I think he had dropped this worker of at 216 00:16:30.429 --> 00:16:36.379 other times, and I talked about what happens in an abortion center and then 217 00:16:36.460 --> 00:16:41.940 I handed him the information and I said, listen, you may know someone 218 00:16:42.620 --> 00:16:47.019 that is considering an abortion, or maybe you don't even know right now, 219 00:16:47.210 --> 00:16:52.889 but maybe if you hang onto this, I guarantee you someone's going to happen 220 00:16:52.929 --> 00:16:56.210 along in your life that is in an unplanned pregnancy considering an abortion, and 221 00:16:56.250 --> 00:17:00.960 I want you to know we help them. We help them with resources and 222 00:17:03.240 --> 00:17:07.960 no matter what situation they face, and with a mentorship program we even do 223 00:17:07.119 --> 00:17:11.759 baby showers that provide two full years of what that child will need. I 224 00:17:11.920 --> 00:17:18.950 just would encourage you to take this information and if you know someone that's struggling, 225 00:17:18.390 --> 00:17:21.789 would you tell her will help them? That's my name and and my 226 00:17:21.829 --> 00:17:26.029 number on the back. So he took the information and said thank you and 227 00:17:26.630 --> 00:17:33.059 left. And that afternoon I was home from the abortion center and I got 228 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:38.539 a call from a woman who said it is this Vickie. Yes, well, 229 00:17:40.059 --> 00:17:45.410 and Uber driver is a friend of mine and he just gave me a 230 00:17:45.609 --> 00:17:52.049 pamphlet that he got from you today and he said that you all help women 231 00:17:52.529 --> 00:17:59.839 who are struggling and unplanned pregnancies and thinking about abortion. And that's my story. 232 00:17:59.880 --> 00:18:03.359 D can You tell me what you could do, how you could help? 233 00:18:04.440 --> 00:18:08.839 And so I did and one thing led to another. I shared the 234 00:18:10.000 --> 00:18:14.589 Gospel. She had fallen away from God, but she and she knew it. 235 00:18:14.869 --> 00:18:18.109 And and like so many women, when she made the decision to abort, 236 00:18:19.230 --> 00:18:22.869 it felt like God had abandoned her when in reality, of course she 237 00:18:23.109 --> 00:18:29.859 had abandoned God. But she be committed her life to the Lord. She 238 00:18:30.019 --> 00:18:34.099 said she was not going to abort. She wanted the mentor and and so, 239 00:18:34.299 --> 00:18:40.980 you know, praise God for that amazing result of the obedience of that 240 00:18:41.490 --> 00:18:45.930 Uber driver. But the story didn't end there. She got involved with the 241 00:18:45.009 --> 00:18:52.089 mentor. She found out just how much help the mentorship program is and her 242 00:18:52.329 --> 00:19:00.160 cousin it was also in an unplanned pregnancy. She told her cousin about us, 243 00:19:00.480 --> 00:19:04.519 gave the cousin the pamphlet. The cousin contacted me and it was the 244 00:19:04.599 --> 00:19:11.190 same ending. She she also committed her life to the Lord. She wanted 245 00:19:11.230 --> 00:19:15.670 to mentor. She got a mentor, and so two babies and to eternal 246 00:19:15.869 --> 00:19:25.940 lives were saved by handing and Uber driver leaving after dropping someone at the abortion 247 00:19:26.099 --> 00:19:30.099 center, but by handing him a pamphlet and telling them about the help that 248 00:19:30.180 --> 00:19:33.940 was available. Well, it's amazing. Yeah, you know, again a 249 00:19:34.619 --> 00:19:40.529 story that I wouldn't have known, which is why we do these podcast I 250 00:19:40.609 --> 00:19:45.769 would think, why bother? Why bother giving giving our information to someone who's 251 00:19:45.769 --> 00:19:51.569 already dropped the woman. It wasn't even a mom to there to abort it. 252 00:19:51.690 --> 00:19:56.119 It was a marker. Here's what I'll say. Win and doubt. 253 00:19:56.559 --> 00:20:00.119 Hand it out. Yeah, and out. Hand out a piece of literature. 254 00:20:00.359 --> 00:20:03.000 Now we don't have just be flinging literature all over the place. You 255 00:20:03.039 --> 00:20:06.400 know, everybody that walks Bo gets literature if you're on like a busy road 256 00:20:06.440 --> 00:20:08.750 or something like that. But when in doubt, hand it out. If 257 00:20:08.750 --> 00:20:12.069 there's an uber driver that stops to take it, get literature into their hands. 258 00:20:12.109 --> 00:20:17.029 Maybe they did drop somebody off and they didn't know it. Maybe we 259 00:20:17.150 --> 00:20:21.190 didn't, they weren't able to stop or for whatever reason they went in still 260 00:20:21.230 --> 00:20:22.940 didn't realize it was an abortion clinic. They come out. I've had that 261 00:20:22.980 --> 00:20:26.619 situation happened before. I'll still give them a piece of literature. I'll try 262 00:20:26.660 --> 00:20:30.819 to encourage them. Can you text that woman and get her to come out 263 00:20:30.819 --> 00:20:32.859 and talk to us? You know, I'll try to encourage me do that. 264 00:20:33.539 --> 00:20:36.569 Yeah, nothing else. I'll say, hang on to this literature, 265 00:20:36.569 --> 00:20:40.049 keep it in your car in case this happens again. You'll know where you're 266 00:20:40.089 --> 00:20:42.809 coming next time, right, and you can hand them this literature. So, 267 00:20:44.369 --> 00:20:48.170 yeah, that literature is powerful. It seems that that we plant that 268 00:20:48.650 --> 00:20:55.400 keep on bringing an increase in yeah, exactly. Sometimes it's the same uber 269 00:20:55.400 --> 00:20:57.119 driver that will end up picking them up. Sometimes they've said come back in 270 00:20:57.200 --> 00:21:00.640 an hour or something. Yeah, that so, and you never know, 271 00:21:02.160 --> 00:21:07.670 and then you've got a double chance to hopefully reach reach that woman. So 272 00:21:07.670 --> 00:21:12.670 the next story is a little bit different, again, one that I think 273 00:21:12.710 --> 00:21:19.460 the Holy Spirit prompted us to act, but that I probably wouldn't, under 274 00:21:19.579 --> 00:21:25.740 normal circumstances, have said anything to these workers. As a paving company, 275 00:21:26.259 --> 00:21:30.539 it was a paving company truck pulls in. There are a lot of potholes 276 00:21:30.859 --> 00:21:36.410 in in the abortion center parking lot, but that didn't really register to me 277 00:21:36.529 --> 00:21:38.490 at first. I thought it was a dad. We do see businesses pull 278 00:21:38.609 --> 00:21:45.089 in in their business trucks pull in with as the dad sometimes meeting the mom, 279 00:21:45.009 --> 00:21:51.000 but in this case so his the the name of the paving company is 280 00:21:51.079 --> 00:21:56.119 on the side and and as he's pulling in, I said our did you 281 00:21:56.200 --> 00:22:02.750 know this is an abortion center that you're pulling into? And he said no, 282 00:22:03.109 --> 00:22:07.309 and he looked visibly shaken. He did not and I went into, 283 00:22:07.430 --> 00:22:11.230 you know, a very similar thing as what I've already told you that I 284 00:22:11.390 --> 00:22:15.140 say, where I described what happens there, and then I said are are 285 00:22:15.180 --> 00:22:19.539 you a believer? And he said yes, and I said well, what 286 00:22:19.700 --> 00:22:25.299 would what would God have you do? Meanwhile the security people are going nuts. 287 00:22:26.460 --> 00:22:30.369 You know, I've stopped up paved, you know, a rot paved 288 00:22:30.490 --> 00:22:34.809 paver trunk driver, and they're screaming at me just that he's here to do 289 00:22:34.890 --> 00:22:37.849 a job, idiot, just leave them alone. Let him drive in. 290 00:22:38.410 --> 00:22:42.170 And I never listened to them. I there were no other cars it. 291 00:22:42.690 --> 00:22:48.160 You know, they they're not the cops and I wasn't doing anything. I 292 00:22:48.359 --> 00:22:52.720 wasn't blocking anyone. The paver wasn't blocking any car from coming in or out. 293 00:22:52.720 --> 00:22:56.480 They're just mad that I'm stopping this person who, they said, he's 294 00:22:56.599 --> 00:22:59.630 he's got a contract, he's he's about to do business with this spe just 295 00:22:59.789 --> 00:23:03.589 let the guy do his job. They're swearing at me, screaming at me, 296 00:23:03.710 --> 00:23:08.349 and I hand him our information and and and said really, think about 297 00:23:08.549 --> 00:23:12.700 what God would have you do. And they drive in and so I think 298 00:23:12.779 --> 00:23:15.420 okay, and I go. I go back. I'm ready to start calling 299 00:23:15.500 --> 00:23:21.059 out, you know, to the MOMS. And they did aktern in the 300 00:23:21.140 --> 00:23:26.210 parking lot and pulled right out and as they're driving out, he held up 301 00:23:26.250 --> 00:23:32.450 the literature and pointed to the sky, you know, to God, and 302 00:23:32.609 --> 00:23:37.650 left. They didn't come back. The the paving company left. So we're 303 00:23:37.690 --> 00:23:45.200 all just cheering. Security is swearing. But that's not the end of that 304 00:23:45.480 --> 00:23:49.559 story either. That Saturday and Daniel, I think you were the one that 305 00:23:49.880 --> 00:23:55.119 had this interaction, or one of the Saturday people. I heard about it 306 00:23:55.240 --> 00:23:56.869 again. I was I was there, but I wasn't right at the driveway 307 00:23:56.869 --> 00:24:02.349 where another paving truck pulled them. So that Saturday, right. Was it 308 00:24:02.470 --> 00:24:04.150 you? You know, the one that was there? Yeah, yeah, 309 00:24:04.670 --> 00:24:08.589 so same thing. They pull in. It sounds like it was the exact 310 00:24:08.630 --> 00:24:11.859 same scenary. Hey, Hey, man, did you know this is an 311 00:24:11.900 --> 00:24:15.740 abortion center? And I don't know if they did or not, but in 312 00:24:15.819 --> 00:24:22.859 a glue and they had no clue and they they pull in and then did 313 00:24:22.940 --> 00:24:26.930 a you turn and left. Yeah, and as they were leaving they said 314 00:24:26.970 --> 00:24:32.690 God, bless you guys for what you're doing. took all so, I 315 00:24:32.809 --> 00:24:41.599 mean that story is so great to me because to paving truck companies that chose 316 00:24:41.680 --> 00:24:48.880 to glorify God rather than be paid their salary by the blood of babies, 317 00:24:48.079 --> 00:24:55.069 that was just such an encouragement. Yeah, to me. Shortly thereafter was 318 00:24:55.269 --> 00:24:59.829 the first four day wee can that I think I've ever known the abortion center 319 00:24:59.869 --> 00:25:03.990 to have, and it maybe it was on the fourth of July weekend. 320 00:25:04.269 --> 00:25:08.779 So normally they take the fourth off, but if it falls on, you 321 00:25:08.859 --> 00:25:12.579 know, a Friday or Saturday, but that's it. Maybe a second day. 322 00:25:12.660 --> 00:25:17.019 But it was the a full four day week and which I had never 323 00:25:17.099 --> 00:25:22.210 seen. And the parking lot was paved and in that period of time, 324 00:25:22.890 --> 00:25:27.930 so a pavery, a paving company showed up about, apparently the abortion center 325 00:25:29.329 --> 00:25:33.650 Wi stoup that hey, when there's a Christian witness out there, even the 326 00:25:33.769 --> 00:25:38.920 workers are affected by by the choice to follow God, and we're going to 327 00:25:40.000 --> 00:25:44.359 have to do this under cover of night and cover up some when they're not 328 00:25:44.480 --> 00:25:48.200 there. I want to reiterate the point I made earlier, is that, 329 00:25:48.599 --> 00:25:53.150 you know, these people quite likely don't know that it's an abortion clinic and 330 00:25:53.269 --> 00:25:56.829 we got to be careful the way that we come across. We don't want 331 00:25:56.829 --> 00:26:00.069 to come across as like we're just we're condemning them, we're lumping them in 332 00:26:00.230 --> 00:26:04.940 with the abortionist or the abortion clinic. In the sense we want to inform 333 00:26:06.099 --> 00:26:10.980 them. You know, we want to expose Effesians five eleven right. Have 334 00:26:11.140 --> 00:26:14.180 no fellowship with him, proof for works of darkness, but rather expose them. 335 00:26:14.940 --> 00:26:18.609 And really we're exposing these people, the service people, whoever they might 336 00:26:18.650 --> 00:26:22.930 be, to the reality that's going on inside of that building and before God, 337 00:26:22.970 --> 00:26:25.970 they have to make a choice. Now I'll share a story real quick, 338 00:26:26.009 --> 00:26:30.730 if my voice will allow, and this is man I don't know, 339 00:26:30.210 --> 00:26:34.920 probably ten years or more ago I was out there on a Saturday. This 340 00:26:36.039 --> 00:26:41.759 is when I was volunteering on the sidewalk at that time and I noticed that 341 00:26:41.839 --> 00:26:45.039 people started flooding out of the building, out of the abortion clinic on the 342 00:26:45.119 --> 00:26:48.789 troube and I'm like, okay, something's going on here, something pretty significant 343 00:26:48.829 --> 00:26:52.269 in this is this is great, because people are getting in their cars and 344 00:26:52.309 --> 00:26:56.789 they're leaving and and all of that. Come to find out, a squirrel 345 00:26:56.630 --> 00:27:04.059 had somehow got on the transformer or something like that and kind of made the 346 00:27:04.140 --> 00:27:08.900 two contacts connect and Squirrel got fried. But theyd you out. Yeah, 347 00:27:10.220 --> 00:27:15.250 so out at the abortion clinic and so they couldn't do abortions. Last Saturday 348 00:27:15.250 --> 00:27:19.250 at that time, sometimes there would be fifty S S, sometimes seventy people 349 00:27:19.329 --> 00:27:22.289 there for an abortion. It was a slaughter house, let me tell yeah. 350 00:27:22.809 --> 00:27:29.089 And there'd be people parking out on the streets and because the parking lot 351 00:27:29.130 --> 00:27:33.480 was so full there for an abortion. So I'm rejoicing. It was being 352 00:27:33.680 --> 00:27:37.440 a small team goes out there. Were rejoicing that these babies are not going 353 00:27:37.440 --> 00:27:42.680 to die. And then the the power company truck pulls in, or pulling 354 00:27:42.759 --> 00:27:47.910 in to restore power. The guys stopped and talked with me and I beg 355 00:27:48.190 --> 00:27:49.950 this guy and he didn't know it was an abortion clinic, but I beg 356 00:27:51.230 --> 00:27:55.869 this man please, this is an abortion clinic. If you restore their power, 357 00:27:55.910 --> 00:28:00.019 they're going to begin killing babies again. This guy now, and I 358 00:28:00.180 --> 00:28:03.339 was as gracious as I could possibly be. I'm not accusing him of anything 359 00:28:03.380 --> 00:28:07.380 he didn't know, but I did bleed with him and this guy was not 360 00:28:07.579 --> 00:28:11.740 happy. So just be prepared that some people are not going to be happy. 361 00:28:11.779 --> 00:28:12.410 He's like, I'm just doing my job, which I'm like, I 362 00:28:12.490 --> 00:28:15.849 understand. Yeah, man, yeah, I would hate to be in that 363 00:28:15.970 --> 00:28:21.450 situation and we really have to understand from their perspective, the situation that they're 364 00:28:21.490 --> 00:28:23.130 in. They do have a job to do, I can get that, 365 00:28:25.450 --> 00:28:27.079 but at the end of the day, if that job is going to be 366 00:28:27.400 --> 00:28:32.799 restoring the power to a place that that murders children, they've really got it 367 00:28:32.880 --> 00:28:37.759 before God make a decision and I believe, the right thing. I mean 368 00:28:37.759 --> 00:28:41.319 I think anyone looking at this scenario the right thing. This guy will saying, 369 00:28:41.359 --> 00:28:42.470 well, somebody's got to restore the power to this place. I'm like, 370 00:28:42.549 --> 00:28:45.589 yeah, of course somebody has to, but it ain't got to be 371 00:28:45.710 --> 00:28:48.869 you. Right, let somebody else do it. If you trust in the 372 00:28:48.990 --> 00:28:52.509 Lord Trust in him. And again, I'm trying to put myself in that 373 00:28:52.549 --> 00:28:56.700 scenario. I would hate to be in that situation. Okay, you lose 374 00:28:56.779 --> 00:29:00.980 your job, you know, certainly, yeah, but again, babies are 375 00:29:02.019 --> 00:29:03.660 dying, and so I think we have to balance. We have to be 376 00:29:03.819 --> 00:29:07.220 gracious about this, right, we have to. We have to not just 377 00:29:07.579 --> 00:29:11.289 kind of disconnect ourselves from the situation. You have to realize that we could 378 00:29:11.289 --> 00:29:15.329 be in that same situation and you know, maybe some of you guys that 379 00:29:15.369 --> 00:29:18.130 are volunteer on the sidewalk, maybe you're an uber driver, some people do 380 00:29:18.369 --> 00:29:22.809 that on the side, you might be put in this situation. To imagine 381 00:29:22.930 --> 00:29:26.440 this is going to be an easy decision when your life, in your livelihood, 382 00:29:26.480 --> 00:29:30.839 depends on it is is likely not true for any of these people. 383 00:29:30.839 --> 00:29:34.519 That's their only livelihood. So we have to we have to meet them with 384 00:29:34.759 --> 00:29:40.509 that, with that in mind, and we have to we have to address 385 00:29:40.589 --> 00:29:45.230 them with humility. But again, at the end of the day, inside 386 00:29:45.269 --> 00:29:48.990 of that building they are killing children, Bab yeah, in these service people 387 00:29:49.549 --> 00:29:55.460 can can do something to affect that in some way. So, yeah, 388 00:29:55.660 --> 00:29:57.140 we're put that out there. Yeah, that's a good story. I've never 389 00:29:57.180 --> 00:30:00.500 heard that one there was one that happened recently, well, I guess about 390 00:30:00.500 --> 00:30:04.619 a year ago in New York City, and again it was only related to 391 00:30:04.740 --> 00:30:07.849 me. So I'm not sure if I have this story totally correctly, but 392 00:30:07.930 --> 00:30:11.809 it's similar to what you just said. It was an uber driver who had 393 00:30:11.890 --> 00:30:15.369 become a new believer and he was going to church with one of our missionaries 394 00:30:17.250 --> 00:30:22.119 and he happened to be delivering food. Maybe I maybe he was a door 395 00:30:22.400 --> 00:30:26.039 driver, but he was. He was a door driver, and so he 396 00:30:26.160 --> 00:30:32.119 was delivering food net actually not at the planned parenthood in New York City, 397 00:30:32.200 --> 00:30:37.269 but nearby, and he saw all those missionaries on the sidewalk and pulled over. 398 00:30:37.829 --> 00:30:41.349 He said Hey, what's happening here, and they explained what was happening 399 00:30:41.509 --> 00:30:48.269 here and he he delivered the food and then he went to one of the 400 00:30:48.390 --> 00:30:52.539 MOMS and he's a new believer. He was on fire for the Lord with 401 00:30:52.660 --> 00:30:56.460 the zeal, all the zeal of you know remember when you were a new 402 00:30:56.539 --> 00:31:00.940 believer, and he talked her out of them killing the baby and that baby 403 00:31:02.019 --> 00:31:06.170 was saved because the door driver decided he was going to find out what was 404 00:31:06.210 --> 00:31:08.769 going on. The missionaries were more than happy to tell him what was going 405 00:31:08.849 --> 00:31:14.890 on. The baby was saved and he was so moved by what God had 406 00:31:14.970 --> 00:31:18.490 done that he now volunteers with them. He started volunteering with them in a 407 00:31:18.599 --> 00:31:22.920 apparently he's still with them. He's still volunteering and very effective. So again, 408 00:31:22.960 --> 00:31:26.599 you never know, this might be your future volunteer pool. But the 409 00:31:26.680 --> 00:31:30.559 people that pull in. So one of my favorite stories, I think it's 410 00:31:30.559 --> 00:31:37.950 our last story, was an interpreter, and this was it poignant in the 411 00:31:37.029 --> 00:31:41.269 same way as you were illustrating, Daniel, as you were saying be gracious. 412 00:31:41.309 --> 00:31:45.910 For some of these people this is really it is their livelihood and this, 413 00:31:45.150 --> 00:31:49.700 this paycheck means could mean the difference between the feed and their family or 414 00:31:49.779 --> 00:31:55.059 not, and and to try and be cognizant of that. I tend to 415 00:31:55.140 --> 00:31:59.420 forget that because my focus is more on the baby, but I think it 416 00:31:59.579 --> 00:32:02.289 is such an important thing to remember. But in this case, this interpreter 417 00:32:02.769 --> 00:32:08.650 came, she was dropped by her husband and her. They were both you 418 00:32:08.730 --> 00:32:13.970 could tell as as the husband dropped her, he hugged her, he kissed 419 00:32:14.009 --> 00:32:19.519 her, you could tell there was anguish in in this couple and I thought 420 00:32:19.720 --> 00:32:22.480 she was a mom coming to a board and so started calling out in that 421 00:32:22.720 --> 00:32:25.680 that way, and she said none, no, no, she she doesn't 422 00:32:25.720 --> 00:32:29.400 believe an abortion. I said, well, what are you doing here then? 423 00:32:29.920 --> 00:32:35.509 And and she said, well, I've been I work as an interpreter 424 00:32:36.269 --> 00:32:43.789 and I've been called to interpret for a mom who doesn't speak English who's here 425 00:32:43.869 --> 00:32:47.259 to kill her baby. And I begged her, don't, don't, don't. 426 00:32:47.420 --> 00:32:51.980 If you don't interpret that baby, they the mom won't be able to 427 00:32:52.140 --> 00:32:55.859 go through with it because she won't be able to understand and just drive away. 428 00:32:57.460 --> 00:33:00.690 And she had a discussion with the husband but said look, I I'm 429 00:33:00.930 --> 00:33:06.170 sorry, I this is it. My husband can't work, he's disabled. 430 00:33:06.369 --> 00:33:12.170 This is my job. I can't risk losing this job or getting a bad 431 00:33:12.329 --> 00:33:16.559 right up or whatever. And and so I said look at at least can 432 00:33:16.640 --> 00:33:22.720 you try and sneak her the literature? Here's what we do. I explained 433 00:33:22.759 --> 00:33:27.710 to her what we do and and told her about because the information was not 434 00:33:27.910 --> 00:33:30.630 in this woman's language. It was an unusual language and I won't tell you 435 00:33:30.670 --> 00:33:35.990 because I don't want to get this interpreter in trouble. But Um, she 436 00:33:36.109 --> 00:33:38.230 did take it. She hit it under her shirt, as we recommend it, 437 00:33:38.589 --> 00:33:44.819 and and she went in and she was in there a good couple of 438 00:33:44.940 --> 00:33:49.660 hours. So we're of course sad. We thought she probably did her best. 439 00:33:50.180 --> 00:33:54.420 And then we see her coming out and she came right over to us 440 00:33:55.009 --> 00:34:00.609 and she said the mom is coming out and I said did she kill her 441 00:34:00.690 --> 00:34:06.450 baby? and Said No. During the whole time that the interpreter was interpreting, 442 00:34:07.089 --> 00:34:09.800 she was not interpreting what the abortion center was telling her to interpret. 443 00:34:10.079 --> 00:34:14.880 She knew none of them understood what she was saying and she was telling the 444 00:34:15.000 --> 00:34:19.519 woman about us, about everything we could do, about God, about that 445 00:34:19.719 --> 00:34:24.710 baby, the humanity of that baby and that she should never kill her child. 446 00:34:25.630 --> 00:34:30.869 And the she said the woman's coming out and I want to interpret for 447 00:34:30.949 --> 00:34:36.030 you all for free on the mobile ultrasound unit. So the woman did come 448 00:34:36.070 --> 00:34:40.300 out. She came right over to us. The interpreter brought her on with 449 00:34:40.539 --> 00:34:45.139 me and whoever else, the nurse and all onto the mobile ultrasound unit. 450 00:34:45.780 --> 00:34:52.579 The woman chose life. was so grateful she had. She was, you 451 00:34:52.699 --> 00:34:54.730 know, in the country, didn't know anyone. I mean I knew you, 452 00:34:57.170 --> 00:35:00.130 I got it. I understood the fear that had overwhelmed this woman. 453 00:35:00.809 --> 00:35:06.969 But with all the things that we offered her that. I believe that might 454 00:35:07.010 --> 00:35:10.039 have been before the days of the mentorship program and love life, but Sheryl 455 00:35:10.119 --> 00:35:16.719 Chandler of truth and mercy pro life ministries definitely offered her a baby shower. 456 00:35:16.760 --> 00:35:22.150 I called Sheryl from the RV and Sheryl said she would love to do the 457 00:35:22.309 --> 00:35:28.789 baby shower for this this young couple, and we did. It was, 458 00:35:29.309 --> 00:35:36.019 I remember still that baby shower because they were so poor but they had this 459 00:35:36.579 --> 00:35:39.860 lavish meal prepared. I knew they couldn't have afforded it, but it was 460 00:35:40.019 --> 00:35:45.099 like just an amazing meal, which never happens. I mean we usually take 461 00:35:45.179 --> 00:35:51.650 them out to to the meal, but they were so grateful they had they 462 00:35:52.329 --> 00:35:58.929 and that that little boy is now, I think, six and every few 463 00:35:59.010 --> 00:36:02.849 months I get a picture in with with this woman in her broken English, 464 00:36:04.010 --> 00:36:08.320 thanking us for having been there along with it's a group email to me, 465 00:36:08.559 --> 00:36:15.159 Ryl and the interpreter, and she has remained friends with that interpreter, as 466 00:36:15.280 --> 00:36:19.789 have we, and and you know, years and years later she is still 467 00:36:19.829 --> 00:36:24.630 still thanking us and saying how this young, young boy is just the the 468 00:36:24.750 --> 00:36:30.110 light of her of her life. Yeah, so you know, use the 469 00:36:30.150 --> 00:36:35.860 interpreters the yeah, the bottom line, center doesn't know. Yeah, with 470 00:36:36.099 --> 00:36:39.260 with all of these people, whatever capacity they're they're a God. Can Use 471 00:36:39.340 --> 00:36:45.619 anything. God can use anything. We don't want to be distracted, like 472 00:36:45.780 --> 00:36:47.489 you started out, we don't want to let these people be our focus. 473 00:36:47.730 --> 00:36:51.769 Right, the MOM's going in and our is our focus. But kind of 474 00:36:51.849 --> 00:36:57.090 like that analogy that we laid out that you know, we're like a lawyer 475 00:36:57.489 --> 00:37:00.519 on behalf of that baby. Right, we're pleading that baby's case proverbs thirty 476 00:37:00.519 --> 00:37:05.320 one, verses eight and nine. We're making a case for those who are 477 00:37:05.320 --> 00:37:09.519 unjustly scheduled to die and we're appealing to the judge, which is the mother. 478 00:37:10.280 --> 00:37:15.320 But we're also bringing witnesses, right, and sometimes as witnesses are the 479 00:37:15.360 --> 00:37:19.590 DADS, some times they're the new friend that brought her friend there for an 480 00:37:19.590 --> 00:37:24.550 abortion. Sometimes they're the UBER driver, sometimes they're the door driver, sometimes 481 00:37:24.590 --> 00:37:30.539 they're, you know, these other service people that are there unknowingly or whatever, 482 00:37:30.099 --> 00:37:34.460 and sometimes they can be called it with the analogy, kind of in 483 00:37:34.579 --> 00:37:37.420 line with the analogy, as witnesses, this baby does not deserve death, 484 00:37:37.619 --> 00:37:42.820 but deserves to live. And in this situation with the interpreter, she was 485 00:37:42.940 --> 00:37:46.889 certainly a witness in that baby's case. That, yeah, baby deserves to 486 00:37:47.010 --> 00:37:51.889 live and praise God for just the fruit that was born out of that situation. 487 00:37:51.929 --> 00:37:53.969 Really and that was a story that we were not able to share for 488 00:37:54.090 --> 00:37:58.329 years because we didn't you know, it's so far removed now they'd never be 489 00:37:58.449 --> 00:38:01.440 able to figure out who it was if they even wanted to at this point. 490 00:38:01.480 --> 00:38:06.159 But for years we were not able to share that story, which is 491 00:38:06.320 --> 00:38:09.599 true of so many of these miraculous stories. We don't share them on purpose. 492 00:38:09.800 --> 00:38:15.510 We don't want to get especially these service workers in trouble when they have 493 00:38:15.710 --> 00:38:20.070 worked so hard to to fight for that child's life. So it's such a 494 00:38:20.269 --> 00:38:23.110 delight to be able to tell that story a little bit because it is one 495 00:38:23.150 --> 00:38:27.860 of the most miraculous things that I have seen happen out there. This is 496 00:38:27.980 --> 00:38:30.380 a woman who knew she had to go in, but she was still not 497 00:38:30.460 --> 00:38:35.340 going to deny her God. Yeah, and and and fought for that baby's 498 00:38:35.380 --> 00:38:38.500 life successfully. Yeah, yeah, want you read that scripture that you have 499 00:38:38.659 --> 00:38:42.250 kind of at the end of this article that you wrote. Like you guys 500 00:38:42.329 --> 00:38:45.889 know, Vicky wrote an article that's come of framework for this a podcast episode. 501 00:38:46.369 --> 00:38:51.889 Read that scripture, maybe expounded on a little bit and then we'll yeah 502 00:38:52.210 --> 00:38:57.480 thing up. Yeah, so it's is AIAH forty one versus ten through thirteen. 503 00:38:57.679 --> 00:39:00.800 And I will tell you what stops me, and maybe it's what stops 504 00:39:00.840 --> 00:39:05.360 a lot of us, from speaking to the workers, the service people that 505 00:39:05.440 --> 00:39:07.920 are coming in, is fear. Yeah, I'm afraid. I'm afraid they're 506 00:39:07.920 --> 00:39:13.230 gonna they're going to be mad. It is their job and I do feel 507 00:39:13.469 --> 00:39:19.869 some you know, there's some kind of at some angst about that. Should 508 00:39:20.070 --> 00:39:22.309 should I really be stopping someone who is putting food on the table? I 509 00:39:22.590 --> 00:39:30.900 mean, they're not doing the abortion there and anyway, so they're I don't 510 00:39:30.059 --> 00:39:37.019 want to talk often times to these service workers and I think in the point 511 00:39:37.059 --> 00:39:43.889 of this podcast is to say don't ever let fear stop you from doing what 512 00:39:44.090 --> 00:39:47.130 God has called you to do, and I think quite often he has called 513 00:39:47.170 --> 00:39:52.199 us to speak to those service workers. So that verst is a a forty 514 00:39:52.239 --> 00:39:57.440 one verse ten to thirteen. Do not fear, for I am with you. 515 00:39:58.239 --> 00:40:00.719 Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I 516 00:40:01.480 --> 00:40:07.030 will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you 517 00:40:07.190 --> 00:40:14.590 with my righteous right hand behold all those who are angered at you will be, 518 00:40:15.110 --> 00:40:21.150 will be shamed and dishonored. I can't help but think of those security 519 00:40:21.190 --> 00:40:28.300 men screaming and swearingness. Those who contend with you will not be as nothing. 520 00:40:28.539 --> 00:40:32.539 will be as nothing and will perish. You will seek those who quarrel 521 00:40:32.619 --> 00:40:36.889 with you, but will not find that. Those who war with you will 522 00:40:36.929 --> 00:40:42.369 be as nothing and nonexistent for I and the Lord, your God, who 523 00:40:42.449 --> 00:40:46.289 uphold you with your right, with my righteous right hand, who says to 524 00:40:46.369 --> 00:40:52.400 you, do not fear, I will help you. And bottom line, 525 00:40:52.960 --> 00:40:58.719 he always does. He always helps us. It may not be the way 526 00:40:58.800 --> 00:41:01.440 you expect. Don't don't get me wrong. Babies will still die, service 527 00:41:01.559 --> 00:41:06.829 workers will still drive in, but when you take a bold step for God, 528 00:41:07.030 --> 00:41:13.030 invariably miracles happen. Yeah, absolutely, yeah, guys. I mean 529 00:41:13.389 --> 00:41:16.789 all through the Scripture, be bold and courageous. You guys. The Bible 530 00:41:16.829 --> 00:41:21.340 says the righteous are as bold as a lion. You guys, are servant 531 00:41:21.380 --> 00:41:24.780 on the sidewalk. I believe you're the righteous that are as bold as a 532 00:41:24.860 --> 00:41:29.659 lion. Not a righteousness that you've come up with yourself. It's a righteousness 533 00:41:29.659 --> 00:41:36.449 that comes through Jesus Christ, but your obedience is stepping into righteousness and being 534 00:41:36.530 --> 00:41:38.690 a righteous person. And listen, you guys can be as bold as a 535 00:41:38.769 --> 00:41:42.690 lion. We don't need to be timid, we don't need to feel like 536 00:41:42.769 --> 00:41:46.719 we're inconveniencing people. Listen, remember babies are dying and God has called you 537 00:41:46.800 --> 00:41:51.639 to this mission. So be bold, speak to these service people. Do 538 00:41:51.800 --> 00:41:58.199 it graciously. A bold, gracious convers conversation with them can go a long 539 00:41:58.239 --> 00:42:01.230 way. And and God's going to use you, guys. God is using 540 00:42:01.269 --> 00:42:06.269 you guys. So with that we're going to wrap this episode up. As 541 00:42:06.309 --> 00:42:07.710 always, we encourage you guys to reach out to us.
