Using Amplified Sound at the Abortion Center

Using Amplified Sound at the Abortion Center

God has provided many wonderful tools for us to use in our ministry at the abortion centers. Though these tools aren’t all necessary they certainly can help make our ministry more effective. In this episode, we talk about amplified sound as a useful tool in ministry and give some helpful tips on using it in sidewalk outreach.

WEBVTT 1 00:00:00.080 --> 00:00:05.679 We've had women that have chosen life because they heard somebody on the amplified sound 2 00:00:06.000 --> 00:00:10.919 in the in the waiting room for some number one in particular, she was 3 00:00:11.000 --> 00:00:16.199 on the operating table and she heard over the microphone your baby is a gift 4 00:00:16.239 --> 00:00:22.120 from God. I Am Yours, I am yours, I am yours, 5 00:00:22.480 --> 00:00:28.399 and me Lord, I am yours, I am yours. I'm welcome to 6 00:00:28.440 --> 00:00:33.920 the Gospel Center Pray Life Podcast, a podcast designed to equip, encourage and 7 00:00:34.039 --> 00:00:38.039 challenge you in pro life ministry, and always with a focus on the Gospel. 8 00:00:38.200 --> 00:00:49.159 Stay tuned. I felt show passish, touch your heart. Use Me. 9 00:00:52.200 --> 00:00:56.119 Welcome back to the Gospel centered pro life podcast. Appreciate you guys joining 10 00:00:56.200 --> 00:01:00.159 us and, as always, we'd appreciate if you guys would share this podcast 11 00:01:00.240 --> 00:01:04.000 episode. I'm here. This is Daniel Parks. I'm here with Vicki Kessi 12 00:01:04.120 --> 00:01:11.519 organ everyone, and we want to cover a subject today that we think would 13 00:01:11.519 --> 00:01:14.519 be a blessing you guys. We think it would be an encouragement to you 14 00:01:14.560 --> 00:01:19.239 guys to maybe use a what we see to be a pretty useful tool in 15 00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:23.200 your sidewalk out reach, and so we're going to talk about speaking on a 16 00:01:23.239 --> 00:01:29.359 microphone or using amplified sound. Right, right, and this this topic came 17 00:01:29.400 --> 00:01:33.359 up because we had a new council well, actually she was not a new 18 00:01:33.400 --> 00:01:37.719 counselor, she was an old councilor that hadn't been on the sidewalk with us 19 00:01:37.760 --> 00:01:42.319 for several years and came back after many years. And and and we realized 20 00:01:42.599 --> 00:01:47.239 that her, what she was doing on the microphone was different than what we're 21 00:01:47.280 --> 00:01:52.519 actually training people that do now. And so it occurred to me training on 22 00:01:52.680 --> 00:01:57.040 how to use the microphone effectively is really a good idea. Yeah, and 23 00:01:57.040 --> 00:02:01.000 and so we're hoping that some of the main points that we bring up in 24 00:02:01.040 --> 00:02:07.759 this article will help people if their facility or their city allows the use of 25 00:02:07.800 --> 00:02:12.199 amplified sound. Yeah, and I guess that's not true, right. Yeah, 26 00:02:12.199 --> 00:02:15.759 that would be kind of the initial question. If I were you those 27 00:02:15.800 --> 00:02:17.800 you are listening and I asked myself, can I use or should I use 28 00:02:17.840 --> 00:02:23.039 amplified sound? The question would be are you legally able to use it? 29 00:02:23.280 --> 00:02:27.520 Right, and because it varies so much from city to city, from county 30 00:02:27.520 --> 00:02:31.360 to county and from area to area, like one city in certain areas could 31 00:02:31.400 --> 00:02:36.680 have no restricts on amplified sound and other areas, like residential areas, there 32 00:02:36.680 --> 00:02:38.599 could be a lot of restrictions on amplified sounds. So there's no way I 33 00:02:38.639 --> 00:02:44.240 can tell you exactly what kind of amplified sound you can use or if you 34 00:02:44.240 --> 00:02:46.520 can use amplified sound at all. That'll be up to you to dig into 35 00:02:46.599 --> 00:02:51.560 your local ordinances and you can just google search it. Another thing I would 36 00:02:51.639 --> 00:02:54.080 encourage you to do is maybe connect with your local police department. I think 37 00:02:54.159 --> 00:03:00.159 the probably the police department that's closest to the abortion center where your minister ring 38 00:03:00.199 --> 00:03:04.080 out and your planning to use amplified sound at reach out to them. If 39 00:03:04.120 --> 00:03:07.240 you can connect with someone who's higher up there, maybe a major or a 40 00:03:07.240 --> 00:03:12.639 captain or whatever, and get something solid like hey, you can do this, 41 00:03:12.680 --> 00:03:15.000 but you can't do this, then I would say definitely get it in 42 00:03:15.000 --> 00:03:19.199 writing. Yeah, that's really if you're able to. Yeah, so that 43 00:03:19.319 --> 00:03:23.159 if there's questions in the future you can you can have it. Hey, 44 00:03:23.199 --> 00:03:27.800 here's what captain so and so told me. So that would that would be 45 00:03:27.840 --> 00:03:32.599 helpful. Now I will say that we'll talk about this a little bit later, 46 00:03:32.639 --> 00:03:39.080 but we do prefer natural voices to amplified sound because it's more inviting amplified 47 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:44.680 sound. Obviously it's loud and we're talking about amplified sound. We're talking about 48 00:03:44.719 --> 00:03:47.479 what we use here in Charlotte and there's a couple of different things that this 49 00:03:47.520 --> 00:03:51.199 could apply to. A could apply to it, like a bullhorn or something 50 00:03:51.240 --> 00:03:57.879 like that. Anything that's electronically amplified would be what we're talking about amplified sound. 51 00:03:58.280 --> 00:04:00.280 So what we use here in Charlotte is a speaker, pretty good south 52 00:04:00.319 --> 00:04:04.120 speaker on the speaker stand with a microphone connected to it, kind of like 53 00:04:04.199 --> 00:04:11.159 what you would use in a concert or you whatever. Right and yeah, 54 00:04:11.319 --> 00:04:14.120 it's pretty loud. We can. We can actually be pretty loud here in 55 00:04:14.199 --> 00:04:19.040 Charlotte. Other people use things like maybe you would call it a voice box 56 00:04:19.160 --> 00:04:24.199 or something like that, sort of a small thing. You have a strap 57 00:04:24.240 --> 00:04:29.040 and have it around your your neck. They're have kind of a head boom 58 00:04:29.040 --> 00:04:31.079 Mike. You guys have seen these things, I'm sure, where you're amplifying 59 00:04:31.120 --> 00:04:34.680 your voice. It's not super loud or anything, but it is still electronically 60 00:04:34.720 --> 00:04:40.519 amplified sound. And so some cities you can use that, some cities you 61 00:04:40.560 --> 00:04:44.319 can't. Some cities you can use it at certain decibel levels. I can't 62 00:04:44.360 --> 00:04:46.240 tell you exactly what you can do in your cities. You'll have to dig 63 00:04:46.279 --> 00:04:49.800 into that, but we are going to talk about some principles of how to 64 00:04:49.879 --> 00:04:55.319 use amplified sound effectively. Again, this is just a tool and so you 65 00:04:55.399 --> 00:05:01.959 do have to be careful for that amplified sound really being a turnoff to people 66 00:05:01.959 --> 00:05:05.199 that are going into the abortion center. You don't want to be blasting them 67 00:05:05.199 --> 00:05:12.519 with just a bunch of loud music or loud preaching or whatever constantly. You 68 00:05:12.519 --> 00:05:15.199 want to invite people to come over and talk to you, right. So 69 00:05:15.439 --> 00:05:18.040 that's that's what you got to be careful for. But the purpose in using 70 00:05:18.079 --> 00:05:25.120 amplified sounds simply is magnifying your voice so that you can be heard. Yeah, 71 00:05:25.160 --> 00:05:29.040 I mean we've had women. We've heard testimonies over the years, several 72 00:05:29.040 --> 00:05:32.639 testimonies of women that were inside of the abortion center. They could hear us 73 00:05:32.680 --> 00:05:39.480 from the outside and something that will set on the microphone appealed to them right 74 00:05:39.639 --> 00:05:42.839 that we would not have been heard if it was just our natural voices. 75 00:05:42.920 --> 00:05:47.040 It was the amplified sound that spoke to their hearts and made them leave. 76 00:05:47.120 --> 00:05:50.360 Now, of course, we've heard many women saying that people calling out, 77 00:05:50.399 --> 00:05:56.120 just the natural voices, and that's probably been more of the the common theme. 78 00:05:56.199 --> 00:05:59.240 I would say that because someone was on the sidewalk calling out with their 79 00:05:59.279 --> 00:06:03.360 natural voice, that God use that to change my mom's heart. So anyway, 80 00:06:03.360 --> 00:06:06.720 all of these things are tools, and so they amplified sound. I 81 00:06:06.759 --> 00:06:12.839 would say, though some might view it as a necessity and some scenarios maybe 82 00:06:12.839 --> 00:06:16.759 it is a necessity, but really it's just another tool that that God has 83 00:06:16.800 --> 00:06:23.759 given us to be able to deliver the Gospel Right. So I say that 84 00:06:23.800 --> 00:06:29.040 because there are some cities where it's just not going to happen. You cannot 85 00:06:29.160 --> 00:06:31.759 use any any amplified sound at all. As matter of fact, one of 86 00:06:31.759 --> 00:06:35.079 our guys, and Roy, if you're listening, appreciate you, brother Roy, 87 00:06:35.199 --> 00:06:39.199 up in Michigan had some issues. He had a one of those little 88 00:06:39.439 --> 00:06:45.079 voice boxes and was there. I mean could have been no louder than somebody 89 00:06:45.199 --> 00:06:47.680 driving by honking their horn or something. There's no way it was much louder 90 00:06:47.720 --> 00:06:50.120 than that. Or it was. There's no way. It was as loud 91 00:06:50.160 --> 00:06:54.439 as that actually, and he got a citation for it, like, no 92 00:06:54.600 --> 00:06:58.240 questions asked, just got a saltation just to citation. Yeah, so no, 93 00:06:58.399 --> 00:07:00.279 the law. Try and try and find out the law before you step 94 00:07:00.319 --> 00:07:03.160 out there, and I'll tell you to even if you know the law, 95 00:07:03.240 --> 00:07:11.160 I mean you can always deal with police officers that are being knuckleheads and stuff. 96 00:07:11.199 --> 00:07:14.680 That's why I say if you do get some kind of you if you 97 00:07:14.720 --> 00:07:16.439 had a conversation going with the police, depart if you can get something written 98 00:07:16.519 --> 00:07:21.439 down so there's a clear understanding, because even from one police officer to another 99 00:07:21.720 --> 00:07:27.519 right they can change and they can apply this law or this rule. The 100 00:07:27.519 --> 00:07:30.720 best you can get an understanding. Sore. I don't want to scare you 101 00:07:30.800 --> 00:07:33.800 guys from using amplified sound. So I want to say that very clearly because 102 00:07:33.839 --> 00:07:39.680 I think it is a powerful tool and if you can use amplified sound, 103 00:07:39.720 --> 00:07:42.680 if there's an allowance for that, whether that be one of the little voice 104 00:07:42.720 --> 00:07:46.560 boxes or big speaker whatever, if you can use it, I say you 105 00:07:46.600 --> 00:07:50.120 need to use it. Absolutely. Yeah, but if it comes down to 106 00:07:50.199 --> 00:07:54.120 not knowing whether or not you can use it legally and you're going to deal 107 00:07:54.120 --> 00:07:58.680 with citations like you don't want to go go around the mountain continually with the 108 00:07:58.680 --> 00:08:03.439 police about amplified sound and completely be distracted. Like God didn't call you out 109 00:08:03.480 --> 00:08:05.839 there to stay in your ground for amplified sound laws. He called you out 110 00:08:05.839 --> 00:08:07.839 there to speak for those babies. And so if you have to put a 111 00:08:07.920 --> 00:08:13.040 lot of attention and energy in to dealing with that stuff, then you're better 112 00:08:13.160 --> 00:08:18.240 off to not use that tool then to be completely distracted with something else. 113 00:08:18.279 --> 00:08:20.160 But if you can use it, yeah, use it, yeah, and 114 00:08:20.240 --> 00:08:22.839 usually if you have it in writing, you you are going to be able 115 00:08:22.959 --> 00:08:28.000 to avoid those kinds of distractions. I know that I have had to pull 116 00:08:28.000 --> 00:08:30.879 out a piece of paper with it in writing, show it to the policeman 117 00:08:31.000 --> 00:08:37.240 who didn't actually know the law right and and he then left me alone because 118 00:08:37.360 --> 00:08:41.559 I could prove that it was okay. So the purpose is obviously we want 119 00:08:41.600 --> 00:08:45.919 to be heard. The danger of amplified sound. As you are heard, 120 00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:48.559 you're very loud. People are going to hear what you say. So it's 121 00:08:48.919 --> 00:08:52.799 a ever, an important tool, but one use it with respect and knowing 122 00:08:52.799 --> 00:08:58.759 that because you will be heard far and wide. We we always recommend that 123 00:08:58.840 --> 00:09:03.039 are people be well rained right for they go on, so we know ahead 124 00:09:03.080 --> 00:09:05.720 of time what the sorts of things they're going to say, in the sorts 125 00:09:05.720 --> 00:09:09.840 of things that that they shouldn't say, but one of the major reasons to 126 00:09:09.919 --> 00:09:16.080 use amplified sound for us in our facility. One you mentioned. They can 127 00:09:16.159 --> 00:09:20.480 hear you in the building. The second one is the pro abortion crowd here 128 00:09:20.519 --> 00:09:26.919 in Charlotte is very loud, right, and they can. They use instruments, 129 00:09:28.159 --> 00:09:33.559 drums, leaflowers and the bills, cowbell whistles, horns. We yesterday 130 00:09:33.600 --> 00:09:39.399 they were using a rubber chicken that they could squeeze and it would make a 131 00:09:39.919 --> 00:09:43.399 horn sound. Sometimes feels like you're at the circus. It feels circuses are 132 00:09:43.480 --> 00:09:50.399 pretty loud. So we need the amplified sound to still be heard, right, 133 00:09:50.440 --> 00:09:54.360 and we that's what that's one of the major reasons we use it is 134 00:09:54.399 --> 00:09:58.399 to be heard over the pro abortion crowd because we are the true pro choice 135 00:09:58.440 --> 00:10:03.039 people and we are the only ones offering the choice for life. Right, 136 00:10:03.080 --> 00:10:07.039 and if we don't use amplified sound, the women often are not going to 137 00:10:07.080 --> 00:10:09.879 hear that choice for life. Yeah, you're going to hear a rubber chicken 138 00:10:09.960 --> 00:10:13.200 honking right. And and so those those, I think, are the two 139 00:10:13.200 --> 00:10:16.960 main reasons. Right, so they can be heard in the building, they 140 00:10:16.960 --> 00:10:22.440 can be heard a long distance and and they can be heard over the the 141 00:10:22.440 --> 00:10:26.360 proportion Crad yeah, absolutely. Yeah. So, so what are some of 142 00:10:26.399 --> 00:10:30.919 the things we've seen as a result of using amplified sound? Yeah, well, 143 00:10:31.000 --> 00:10:35.159 like I mentioned earlier, we'd have we've had women that have chosen life 144 00:10:35.279 --> 00:10:39.480 because they heard somebody on the amplified sound in the in the waiting room for 145 00:10:39.960 --> 00:10:45.320 some number one in particular, she was on the operating table and she heard 146 00:10:45.440 --> 00:10:50.440 over the microphone your baby is a gift from God. Yeah, and she 147 00:10:50.519 --> 00:10:56.000 was like I can do this. Yeah, I'll say one kind of like 148 00:10:56.120 --> 00:11:03.080 unintended effect was we had a guy, we volunteered with us for years actually 149 00:11:03.080 --> 00:11:07.919 after this situation, who is living in the apartment complex behind the abortion center 150 00:11:07.679 --> 00:11:13.120 and living with his girlfriend sin and here it us on the microphone. This 151 00:11:13.200 --> 00:11:16.840 was years ago. He hold it, hurt us on the microphone and ended 152 00:11:16.919 --> 00:11:20.200 up walking through the woods from the back of the abortion center coming over and 153 00:11:20.240 --> 00:11:24.240 talking with US and ended up, like to the progression of things, repenting 154 00:11:24.279 --> 00:11:28.039 and moving out from his girlfriend's house and surrender his life to Jesus. Actually 155 00:11:28.080 --> 00:11:31.799 lived with one of our one of our guys who were on the sidewalk for 156 00:11:31.799 --> 00:11:35.279 for a while. That sounds so pretty cool. That was amplified sound that 157 00:11:35.320 --> 00:11:39.320 he was hearing in the apartment. Yeah, that's not what we want and 158 00:11:39.559 --> 00:11:41.120 I do think we have to make God use all kinds of things. Just 159 00:11:41.120 --> 00:11:45.159 because God uses something doesn't mean it should be our normal practice. Yeah, 160 00:11:45.240 --> 00:11:46.559 so I do think we need to be careful. This is kind of like 161 00:11:46.639 --> 00:11:50.080 a springboard off of that as a warning that we don't want to just blast 162 00:11:50.120 --> 00:11:56.039 the whole neighborhood around and tick people off unnecessarily. I mean if we're being 163 00:11:56.080 --> 00:11:58.559 loud enough to be heard and we're within the legal boundaries, and that time 164 00:11:58.600 --> 00:12:03.120 we we were within the laws that they had established at that point. And 165 00:12:03.200 --> 00:12:05.600 other people are ticked off of what we're doing, well, that's not our 166 00:12:05.639 --> 00:12:09.679 fault, as you take that up with somebody else. But we don't just 167 00:12:09.759 --> 00:12:15.559 want to be unnecessarily loud and obnoxious either. Right, right. Yeah, 168 00:12:15.600 --> 00:12:18.840 I had a businessperson from down the street coming. They knew what we were 169 00:12:18.879 --> 00:12:22.919 doing because they actually had heard us for over the microphone and they they happen 170 00:12:24.000 --> 00:12:28.240 to be supportive. We have also had some that can be angry because it's 171 00:12:28.279 --> 00:12:30.679 so you do have to be careful. You don't want to anger people, 172 00:12:31.440 --> 00:12:35.279 but there are something of they I'll just say if people get angry because you're 173 00:12:35.279 --> 00:12:37.960 preaching the Gospel, that's one thing, right, and you know they have 174 00:12:39.039 --> 00:12:41.240 to deal with that between them and the Lord. Yeah, but if they're 175 00:12:41.240 --> 00:12:46.879 angry just because you're being inconsiderate and just obnoxious unnecessarily, then that's that's one 176 00:12:46.919 --> 00:12:50.720 thing. That's okay. You're going to have to do with before the disrupting 177 00:12:50.759 --> 00:12:54.399 their business or disrupting a baby sleep in nearby neighborhood. None of that is 178 00:12:54.399 --> 00:12:58.000 is our intention, right, and we have to be careful about about that. 179 00:12:58.519 --> 00:13:03.720 So some things not to say. Remember it's loud. So some things 180 00:13:03.720 --> 00:13:07.240 to really be careful of. The just the biggest category for me is do 181 00:13:07.360 --> 00:13:13.320 not dishonor God. Right, yeah, no matter what you say, it 182 00:13:13.399 --> 00:13:18.679 should be honoring to God. Yeah, I will say you mentioned earlier and 183 00:13:18.720 --> 00:13:22.080 I'll share with those who are listening kind of our some of our rules. 184 00:13:22.240 --> 00:13:26.120 I guess you'll say. Okay, we don't just let brand new people on 185 00:13:26.159 --> 00:13:30.759 the microphite. If your brand new, you come out to shadow our team, 186 00:13:30.879 --> 00:13:33.799 or even if you've been out there for a couple of weeks and you 187 00:13:33.840 --> 00:13:37.600 know you're handing out literature. There's certain things we allow you to do in 188 00:13:37.639 --> 00:13:43.000 the early stages of volunteering. But we withhold privileges for the microphone until they've 189 00:13:43.039 --> 00:13:48.759 gone through the one hundred and two training normally. And we do that because 190 00:13:48.799 --> 00:13:54.679 the microphone is a little more it's a little more pronounced and it's something we 191 00:13:54.759 --> 00:13:58.519 can take a little more ownership of. Right. I mean, anyone can 192 00:13:58.559 --> 00:14:01.320 show up on a public sidewalk and call out to people going in front, 193 00:14:01.519 --> 00:14:05.759 are going into the abortions sound, whether they're in front. Anyone can show 194 00:14:05.840 --> 00:14:09.279 up with brochures, whether there are brochures or somebody else's, and hand out 195 00:14:09.279 --> 00:14:15.279 brochures. Anyone can do that stuff. Those are things that we don't necessarily 196 00:14:15.320 --> 00:14:20.200 have ownership of. But what we do have ownership of is our microphone, 197 00:14:20.879 --> 00:14:22.879 and if we're going to allow someone on that microphone to me, they need 198 00:14:22.919 --> 00:14:26.440 to be vetted. We need to make sure that they're going to say the 199 00:14:26.440 --> 00:14:31.639 things that are in line with what we believe to be what God has called 200 00:14:31.720 --> 00:14:35.679 us to make sure they're not preaching a false gospel. We are intentional about 201 00:14:35.679 --> 00:14:37.879 sharing the Gospel in the microphone. So you want to make sure the gospel 202 00:14:37.919 --> 00:14:41.639 that they're going to be proclaiming is consistent. We want to make sure that 203 00:14:41.679 --> 00:14:46.080 people aren't on the microphone making allowances for abortions. Right, I want to 204 00:14:46.120 --> 00:14:50.480 make sure that the people who are on the microphone are consistent. Like we 205 00:14:50.559 --> 00:14:54.240 don't believe that it's right to a board a baby because for any reason, 206 00:14:54.360 --> 00:14:56.720 and I've had people come across my radar who want to volunteer, who think 207 00:14:56.759 --> 00:15:01.159 that rape is an acceptable reason to happen of ortion. Yeah, if I 208 00:15:01.159 --> 00:15:03.799 throw somebody like that on the microphone and there's a situation where a woman is 209 00:15:03.840 --> 00:15:09.200 in that terrible situation, you know, there's a that that plays out there 210 00:15:09.200 --> 00:15:11.399 and somebody hops on the microphone and says, you know, don't abort your 211 00:15:11.399 --> 00:15:15.399 baby unless you've been raped, that's going to be a problem. Right, 212 00:15:15.519 --> 00:15:22.039 right. So you can't. You can't take care of of every issue and 213 00:15:22.200 --> 00:15:26.120 everything. I mean, you've been on the microphone before and said dumb stuff. 214 00:15:26.200 --> 00:15:28.519 Yeah, I've been on micro get your free abortions. Come over and 215 00:15:28.519 --> 00:15:31.960 get your free abortions. I meant free ultrasounds and I didn't. It took 216 00:15:33.000 --> 00:15:35.440 me a while before I realized what I had said. Yeah, yeah, 217 00:15:35.440 --> 00:15:39.080 we've all done that. Yeah, I've said some dumb stuff on the microphone 218 00:15:39.080 --> 00:15:41.840 where I'm like, wait a minute, did I just say that? Right? 219 00:15:41.879 --> 00:15:45.720 So that's one thing, yeah, but the theme of the message still, 220 00:15:45.720 --> 00:15:48.440 though, is going to be pretty consistent and or is going to be 221 00:15:48.440 --> 00:15:52.519 consistent with what we believe and what we what we want put out there. 222 00:15:52.679 --> 00:15:56.480 Right. And so, yeah, again, we do with whole and it 223 00:15:56.559 --> 00:16:03.360 kind of actually it serves as sort of like, I guess, an incentive 224 00:16:03.360 --> 00:16:06.840 for people to stay plugged in and to attend the trainings, to because the 225 00:16:06.879 --> 00:16:10.720 trainings are not just a box that you check. We're actually teaching people stuff, 226 00:16:10.799 --> 00:16:12.039 right, right, so you can't get on the microphone to you get 227 00:16:12.039 --> 00:16:15.360 to one hundred and two. Some people are looking forward to that. Now. 228 00:16:15.399 --> 00:16:18.279 Some people are like, I don't ever want to get on the microphone 229 00:16:18.320 --> 00:16:19.960 at all. In fact, most people actually sought a people really that. 230 00:16:21.399 --> 00:16:25.360 Yeah, yeah, but they will find, I think we've heard this pretty 231 00:16:25.399 --> 00:16:30.080 consistently, when they hop on that microphone and even do something is simple, 232 00:16:30.159 --> 00:16:33.440 is sharing just a scripture. You know, someone thirty nine versus thirteen and 233 00:16:33.440 --> 00:16:37.159 fourteen or some some folks I've seen brand new on the microphone will take our 234 00:16:37.159 --> 00:16:41.879 brochure and just read out like the explanation of an abortion. Just kind of 235 00:16:41.879 --> 00:16:45.919 read page by page the brochure, which I think is a good way to 236 00:16:45.919 --> 00:16:49.200 get started and get yourself used to hear in your own voice amplified, because 237 00:16:49.200 --> 00:16:53.600 that's a little weird too. And then some people will grab the microphone and 238 00:16:53.639 --> 00:16:57.240 just roll with it, you know, especially you get somebody who's a WHO's 239 00:16:57.240 --> 00:17:00.120 a preacher, you let them go and they'll go for, you know, 240 00:17:00.600 --> 00:17:03.160 twenty, thirty minutes if you're not careful. Yeah, we can talk about 241 00:17:03.160 --> 00:17:06.559 that in a little we are going to talk about that. I don't know 242 00:17:06.599 --> 00:17:10.680 if we do get to that a little bit further on. But one of 243 00:17:10.720 --> 00:17:15.400 the things that I that I did as a new person on the microphone to 244 00:17:15.400 --> 00:17:19.160 make sure that I was honoring God and then our second point not speaking anything 245 00:17:19.200 --> 00:17:23.480 that was not true, is I wrote things down ahead of time. I 246 00:17:23.519 --> 00:17:26.519 prayed about it, I thought about it and I actually wrote out what I 247 00:17:26.559 --> 00:17:30.440 was going to say when I was strand new, and I do recommend that 248 00:17:30.480 --> 00:17:33.799 to people who are at all nervous or you know, it's there for everyone's 249 00:17:33.839 --> 00:17:37.200 nervous the first time, but but when you get on the MIC, make 250 00:17:37.240 --> 00:17:42.039 sure you've got a game plan of what you're going to say so that you 251 00:17:42.240 --> 00:17:48.359 kind of don't drone on and on, but also that you are honoring God 252 00:17:48.440 --> 00:17:52.839 and everything you say. For example, I we would strongly discourage any kind 253 00:17:52.920 --> 00:17:57.559 of singling someone out, to call them names, to disparage, to insult. 254 00:17:57.599 --> 00:18:03.680 You never do that. That would be totally inappropriate use of the microphone. 255 00:18:03.759 --> 00:18:07.160 Yeah, and definitely like I would say to to dig into that point 256 00:18:07.200 --> 00:18:12.279 a little bit. Yeah, there, maybe you always have to leave allowance 257 00:18:12.359 --> 00:18:15.880 for people to be led by the Holy Spirit. Yeah, but I would 258 00:18:15.920 --> 00:18:21.960 say for the most part you want to stay away from singling people out. 259 00:18:21.960 --> 00:18:25.920 Of course calling names, but even like hey, you in the Red Hoodie, 260 00:18:26.319 --> 00:18:30.559 just right, because the microphone more is kind of for general proclamation rather 261 00:18:30.599 --> 00:18:34.519 than particular proclamation. That makes sense. It does make sense, and I 262 00:18:36.160 --> 00:18:38.359 like that you said let the Holy Spirit lead you, because there are times 263 00:18:38.359 --> 00:18:45.240 that there's a particular situation that person may have walked in. I actually this 264 00:18:45.480 --> 00:18:48.960 happened just this week. She was a high risk mom and she was operating 265 00:18:49.039 --> 00:18:56.440 under fear and I just felt she needs to hear what God has to say 266 00:18:56.519 --> 00:19:00.559 about fear. Yeah, so there are but I didn't say that, lady. 267 00:19:00.599 --> 00:19:04.000 I just spoke to in the high risk situation. I just started to 268 00:19:04.079 --> 00:19:07.599 because that can be a general message. Kind of generalized it right, right, 269 00:19:07.640 --> 00:19:11.799 and I would say too, if you because there's been situations where you 270 00:19:12.240 --> 00:19:17.000 meet a mom out on the road or maybe she's walking up to the abortion 271 00:19:17.039 --> 00:19:19.160 center. You get into an indep conversation, you get her name, yeah, 272 00:19:19.240 --> 00:19:23.000 and then unfortunately she decides to going to the abortion center. I would 273 00:19:23.039 --> 00:19:27.000 really be careful even calling her name out, especially in the microphone. Yeah, 274 00:19:27.039 --> 00:19:32.519 but even if you're not use an amplified sound you still you don't want 275 00:19:32.559 --> 00:19:36.000 to create a barrier between you and that person. You want to gain trust, 276 00:19:36.240 --> 00:19:38.039 right, and it's sort of a breach of trust, especially if you're 277 00:19:38.079 --> 00:19:42.839 doing an amplified yeah, to broadcast their name to the whole parking lot or 278 00:19:42.880 --> 00:19:47.039 the whole facility or whatever. You got to be real, really careful, 279 00:19:47.119 --> 00:19:51.440 right. Also, because it is so easy to go on and on once 280 00:19:51.519 --> 00:19:55.680 you get used to being on the microphone. It's easy to get off track. 281 00:19:55.960 --> 00:19:59.119 Yeah, and stick to the three talking points as one of the thing 282 00:19:59.200 --> 00:20:04.960 we we train our people really think about those three main talking point resources, 283 00:20:04.960 --> 00:20:08.640 what God says about abortion, about the baby, and then the humanity of 284 00:20:08.680 --> 00:20:15.200 the baby and try not to veer very far, yeah, from those main 285 00:20:15.359 --> 00:20:18.960 topics. Yeah. Now one of the things that I will kind of veering 286 00:20:19.000 --> 00:20:22.400 outside of those three talking points and that framework, that I will touch on 287 00:20:22.400 --> 00:20:27.000 on the microphone, and I do this often, but I sort of withhold 288 00:20:27.039 --> 00:20:32.079 this until the end. So I'll kind of give a message around the three 289 00:20:32.079 --> 00:20:37.960 talking points pretty much, but toward the end I'll start explaining the abortion procedures 290 00:20:37.960 --> 00:20:41.079 exactly, which I think is powerful. I agree. I don't think that 291 00:20:41.079 --> 00:20:45.359 we have to get unnecessarily in depth with that and just gory details, but 292 00:20:45.400 --> 00:20:48.400 I do think they need to understand the reality that they're going to dismember their 293 00:20:48.440 --> 00:20:53.079 own child. Yeah, yeah, and explaining what the procedures going to be, 294 00:20:53.119 --> 00:20:56.839 even describing like the abortion pill procedure, which some of these women have 295 00:20:56.880 --> 00:21:02.039 they've kind of disconnected from abortion. The abortion pill is not an abortion in 296 00:21:02.079 --> 00:21:03.839 their minds. Yeah, and that line needs to be dispelled. So I'll 297 00:21:03.880 --> 00:21:10.319 go after that and then I will also sometimes get into the track record of 298 00:21:10.319 --> 00:21:12.680 the abortion facility. So I might talk about the abortionist, if I know 299 00:21:12.680 --> 00:21:18.279 who that abortionist is. I might talk about their track record, I might 300 00:21:18.279 --> 00:21:21.200 talk about the issues that they've had some of the things that they've said in 301 00:21:21.240 --> 00:21:25.200 their past whatever, because we know these people aren't great. Yeah, but 302 00:21:25.960 --> 00:21:29.920 I normally don't let that be my main theme. I just want to drop 303 00:21:29.960 --> 00:21:36.160 those nuggets of truth and I want to sow seeds of doubt in the abortion 304 00:21:36.160 --> 00:21:38.000 clinic that they put their trust in. I want I want them to see 305 00:21:38.000 --> 00:21:41.160 they should not have their trust in that place because it's not a good place. 306 00:21:41.279 --> 00:21:45.000 Right. Yeah, that's that's a good point, and one of the 307 00:21:45.000 --> 00:21:51.440 things as as in trying to keep your time on the microphone from getting too 308 00:21:51.480 --> 00:21:55.400 long, you really want to keep your audience in mind. Your target audience, 309 00:21:55.519 --> 00:21:59.119 and by that I mean our ministry, is to the unborn children. 310 00:21:59.119 --> 00:22:00.640 We're not going to reach them unless we reach the mom yeah, so there 311 00:22:00.640 --> 00:22:04.559 are main audience, but I have heard people get on the microphone, myself 312 00:22:04.640 --> 00:22:10.720 included. I'm guilty of this, where I have just been so angered by 313 00:22:10.799 --> 00:22:15.160 the pro abortion crowd that I start speaking to them. Well, that's really 314 00:22:15.240 --> 00:22:21.279 not good, but that's not what the purpose of the microphone is and we 315 00:22:21.319 --> 00:22:26.119 really need to guard against that. I guarantee all of us are tempted because 316 00:22:26.160 --> 00:22:32.279 we've been so angered and so unable to really kind of defend ourselves that sometimes 317 00:22:32.359 --> 00:22:36.279 we fall into that trap and we're just warning you don't try to try to 318 00:22:36.400 --> 00:22:38.359 keep in mind who you speaking to. You're speaking to the MOMS. If 319 00:22:38.400 --> 00:22:42.000 there's no mom in sight, you're speaking of the dad's because that mom is 320 00:22:42.039 --> 00:22:45.319 in the building, and if you can be heard in the building, you're 321 00:22:45.440 --> 00:22:48.440 always kind of speaking to the mom right. Really is and should be your 322 00:22:48.480 --> 00:22:55.240 focus. Yeah, I agree. So the next point is really important and 323 00:22:55.359 --> 00:22:56.880 Daniel, I think you were the first one that kind of taught me about 324 00:22:56.920 --> 00:23:00.680 this, about speaking for no more than a few minutes at a time. 325 00:23:02.039 --> 00:23:04.759 Yeah, I think you had said. If you think about it, white 326 00:23:04.880 --> 00:23:10.680 noise, background noise, is what anything becomes. If it's going on and 327 00:23:10.759 --> 00:23:17.079 on and on right on, your brain just stops registering it, and so 328 00:23:17.359 --> 00:23:22.279 we really should keep our the the times when we speak short, to the 329 00:23:22.319 --> 00:23:27.160 point and then let there be a processing time, yea silence. Yeah, 330 00:23:27.240 --> 00:23:30.400 yeah, I agree with that. Mean really five to ten minutes? Yeah, 331 00:23:30.559 --> 00:23:34.480 I have gone longer than that, I probably. Yeah, I mean 332 00:23:34.559 --> 00:23:40.279 I may consistently go over that much time. Yeah, but I do intentionally 333 00:23:40.440 --> 00:23:47.680 pause and I do intentionally speak slower. So I and also intentionally make the 334 00:23:47.680 --> 00:23:52.119 phrases and the words that I use as simple to understand as possible, because 335 00:23:52.119 --> 00:23:56.799 we've got to think in the framework of a young lady who's scared. There's 336 00:23:56.799 --> 00:24:00.880 a lot going through her mind. There's a lot of stuff. So I'm 337 00:24:00.920 --> 00:24:07.000 not going to speak in Super Complex theological phraseology and things like that. You 338 00:24:07.039 --> 00:24:11.160 know right I'm not going to touch on in depth subjects that have to do 339 00:24:11.160 --> 00:24:15.559 with abortion anything. I'm going to stay pretty surface level. I'm going to 340 00:24:15.599 --> 00:24:19.799 sting with some powerful nuggets of truth and I'm going to let them just sit 341 00:24:19.920 --> 00:24:23.599 there. Yeah, yeah, like I said, I'll speak slower. I'll 342 00:24:23.599 --> 00:24:30.000 give a phrase or I'll give maybe a two or three minute something on one 343 00:24:30.039 --> 00:24:32.359 of these subjects, one of the three top points. Let it sit for 344 00:24:32.400 --> 00:24:36.480 a second and then I might take up from there. Now there are other 345 00:24:36.519 --> 00:24:40.759 times I may get a little more excited and I might preach a little longer, 346 00:24:40.799 --> 00:24:44.880 I might be more into like, yeah, I might go into ten 347 00:24:44.960 --> 00:24:48.240 or twenty minutes, but I do try to pause in between and give them 348 00:24:48.240 --> 00:24:52.400 time to processes. Yeah, and I have heard sometimes counselor say I was 349 00:24:52.519 --> 00:24:55.519 on the microphone the whole day and the whole day for us is three or 350 00:24:55.519 --> 00:25:00.200 four hours, and I would just caution people. If that's true, I 351 00:25:00.240 --> 00:25:04.599 would tell you that's not a good thing. In my opinion, you're probably 352 00:25:04.680 --> 00:25:08.880 being tuned out. Yeah, largely tuned out. You've become background noise at 353 00:25:08.920 --> 00:25:12.279 that point. So I think it is really good to keep that in us. 354 00:25:12.519 --> 00:25:17.759 I will say this, like I have observed this. This is why 355 00:25:18.400 --> 00:25:22.279 we a couple of years ago put a framework in place of sort of like 356 00:25:22.359 --> 00:25:25.720 time limits on the microphone and things like that. Yeah, because I have 357 00:25:25.799 --> 00:25:30.640 observed when you're on the microphone the whole time, yeah, you're interactions are 358 00:25:30.680 --> 00:25:33.759 going to be less. Yeah, I'm telling you, it's absolutely true. 359 00:25:33.799 --> 00:25:37.839 If you're on the microphone for a solid hour or a solid thirty minutes and 360 00:25:37.880 --> 00:25:41.880 you take back up another thirty minutes, another thirty minutes or whatever, you 361 00:25:41.880 --> 00:25:44.920 will see that your interactions will be less right, and I a goose that. 362 00:25:45.039 --> 00:25:48.119 Yeah, it becomes like a barrier, becomes more like you're preaching at 363 00:25:48.200 --> 00:25:52.279 them rather than inviting them to come and engage with you, because that's what 364 00:25:52.359 --> 00:25:56.359 you want and that is sub to engage with. That is such a good 365 00:25:56.359 --> 00:25:59.720 point. It is one of my concerns when you get someone who is trained 366 00:25:59.759 --> 00:26:03.119 as a street preacher. Yeah, and they come out to the abortion center. 367 00:26:03.160 --> 00:26:07.039 They are delivering a message and they often delivered very well, but it 368 00:26:07.079 --> 00:26:11.640 often shuts down interaction because it's you're sending out a message but you're not really 369 00:26:11.640 --> 00:26:15.400 inviting through periods of silence. Yeah, that for them to come and talk 370 00:26:15.480 --> 00:26:21.200 with you. So, in fact, I remember flip one time coming to 371 00:26:21.240 --> 00:26:25.799 me and saying Vicky stopped droning, and I think what he was saying was 372 00:26:26.039 --> 00:26:30.079 be quiet more and and you're just going on and on and on and on 373 00:26:30.160 --> 00:26:33.160 with a monotone kind of voice. So be careful that you're not droning. 374 00:26:33.400 --> 00:26:38.559 Yeah, sharing the Gospel succinctly. We had our people practice sharing the Gospel 375 00:26:38.559 --> 00:26:41.680 in five minutes. Right. I went home and practice that and I asked 376 00:26:41.680 --> 00:26:45.680 every all the cancer's practice that. Yeah, if you can't do it in 377 00:26:45.720 --> 00:26:48.200 five minutes, you don't know the Gospel. Right. Yeah, now, 378 00:26:48.240 --> 00:26:51.319 you're not going to get into all the INS and outs through the Gospel, 379 00:26:51.599 --> 00:26:56.119 but hit the main points and at some point when you're on the mic, 380 00:26:56.240 --> 00:26:59.640 share the Gospel. But if you can't do it in less than five minutes, 381 00:26:59.640 --> 00:27:02.640 you're ably going to lose your audience. Yeah, they're not there to 382 00:27:02.720 --> 00:27:07.759 listen to a concert or, you know, a Soliloquy for for half an 383 00:27:07.799 --> 00:27:10.759 hour. So share at succinctly. Yeah, yeah, I agree with that 384 00:27:11.200 --> 00:27:15.640 and I don't know that we have and I'm not out there as regularly as 385 00:27:15.680 --> 00:27:18.480 I used to be, but when I was out there we sort of have 386 00:27:18.759 --> 00:27:25.319 a flow of things and nine twenty or so, right before the right after 387 00:27:25.359 --> 00:27:27.680 the doors opened in the patients are inside, we want to give kind of 388 00:27:27.720 --> 00:27:32.799 a general proclamation touching on the three talking points, and an hour later we 389 00:27:32.839 --> 00:27:34.839 do the same and then during the end of day, wrapping up, we 390 00:27:34.880 --> 00:27:41.720 want a Gospel Message of Gospel Proclamation over the place. Be Intentional about preaching 391 00:27:41.920 --> 00:27:47.920 the Gospel Right now. Obviously in all that you're saying you're weaving scripture in, 392 00:27:48.000 --> 00:27:52.039 you're weaving the Gospel in, but we try to be intentional about every 393 00:27:52.119 --> 00:27:57.799 day that we're out there we want to have a clear proclamation of the Gospel 394 00:27:57.839 --> 00:28:06.160 that's laid out succinctly, five minutes or less and just just to be obviously 395 00:28:06.240 --> 00:28:11.759 to give the Gospel. It's unleash the Gospel Right. It's the power of 396 00:28:11.759 --> 00:28:15.839 God to salvation, but also to honor the Lord, and that's being out 397 00:28:15.880 --> 00:28:18.440 there like God. We're out here to bring the Gospel, not just some 398 00:28:18.519 --> 00:28:23.160 pro life message or whatever. That's right and we have kind of not veered 399 00:28:23.200 --> 00:28:29.000 away from that. We don't do that as often, mostly because so much 400 00:28:29.000 --> 00:28:33.720 we need the microphone now as the calling out that we would have been doing 401 00:28:33.759 --> 00:28:38.279 by our voice right because of the noise that the pro abortion crowd is, 402 00:28:38.359 --> 00:28:42.680 yes, making out there. But but there are a couple of things to 403 00:28:42.680 --> 00:28:48.079 be aware of. I would not talk about abortion pill reversal early on, 404 00:28:48.400 --> 00:28:52.559 right before an abortionist is there, because you're giving them an out. I 405 00:28:52.599 --> 00:28:57.319 would not talk about God's forgiveness before the abortionist arrives, before people are coming 406 00:28:57.319 --> 00:29:00.000 out, for the same reason. You don't want to be careful that what 407 00:29:00.039 --> 00:29:03.799 you're saying is not going to give them an out to have the abortion in 408 00:29:03.839 --> 00:29:08.119 their mind and then you know the they can just then do the abortion pill 409 00:29:08.160 --> 00:29:14.240 reversal or they can just then ask God's forgiveness. That would be the wrong 410 00:29:14.319 --> 00:29:18.519 message. And then one other not to do. Don't call out on the 411 00:29:18.599 --> 00:29:26.839 microphone while and unamplified counselor is calling out. Let them finish and let them 412 00:29:26.839 --> 00:29:30.039 speak unless they can no longer be heard. Yeah, yeah, and we 413 00:29:30.160 --> 00:29:34.079 use hand signals if we have since we're a hundred fifty feet away from the 414 00:29:34.119 --> 00:29:38.519 clinic. We're on the microphone. It's not like we can communicate very easily 415 00:29:38.640 --> 00:29:42.160 with each other. We have to, you know, kind of put your 416 00:29:42.160 --> 00:29:45.039 hand up if you're talking. You know, always watch for someone to put 417 00:29:45.079 --> 00:29:49.480 their hands up over their mouth or whatever so that I know they're talking. 418 00:29:49.519 --> 00:29:52.519 I shut it down if I'm on the microphone. Yeah, let them talk 419 00:29:52.519 --> 00:29:56.440 and that I'll take back up from there. Yeah, one thing as we 420 00:29:56.440 --> 00:30:02.480 wrap up that I want to talk about, and maybe we can debate this 421 00:30:02.519 --> 00:30:07.000 a little bit. Okay, but it's music, playing music. Oh yes, 422 00:30:07.079 --> 00:30:12.000 yeah, and compress cons go ahead with your feelings first. In time 423 00:30:12.039 --> 00:30:18.359 past we had played almost the whole time we're out there, music over the 424 00:30:18.400 --> 00:30:23.240 amplified sound. Now, it was always music that had a sense of sobriety 425 00:30:23.319 --> 00:30:27.039 to it. I don't think peppy, happy music is a good thing to 426 00:30:27.079 --> 00:30:30.279 be playing out there. I think we do need to be careful. We 427 00:30:30.359 --> 00:30:34.920 certainly don't want to be playing secular music right, but I do think that 428 00:30:36.039 --> 00:30:42.000 you can, you can create an atmosphere of worship and sobriety for the people 429 00:30:42.039 --> 00:30:45.480 who are ministering out there by having music now. You don't want it so 430 00:30:45.519 --> 00:30:49.319 loud that it drowns everybody out right. You don't want that and I do 431 00:30:49.440 --> 00:30:53.039 think that there's a sense in which, especially if you're playing music with with 432 00:30:53.160 --> 00:30:59.200 lyrics to it rather than just instrumental music like you're creating that that sort of 433 00:30:59.200 --> 00:31:02.960 barrier because you're blasting music out the whole time, because quite likely, if 434 00:31:02.960 --> 00:31:04.480 you're playing music, you're playing it the whole time and then you shut the 435 00:31:04.559 --> 00:31:08.240 music down, to speak. That that's something I would I would kind of 436 00:31:08.279 --> 00:31:11.440 rethink. Now one thing again, there's kind of a debate here. One 437 00:31:11.440 --> 00:31:15.039 thing that it does do, it's it gives you authority over the atmosphere and, 438 00:31:15.160 --> 00:31:18.680 especially when you're being worshipful and the people that are out there being worshipful, 439 00:31:18.759 --> 00:31:23.200 there's kind of this this natural authority where you're actually taking over the atmosphere. 440 00:31:23.240 --> 00:31:27.039 Then there's a spiritual authority. You're worshiping the Lord, you're magnifying him. 441 00:31:27.079 --> 00:31:29.960 So I think there can be a balance. There's a lot of things 442 00:31:30.160 --> 00:31:33.759 to consider in that. I would definitely seek the Lord about that. But 443 00:31:33.759 --> 00:31:34.920 what you don't want to do. For sure, if you're going to play 444 00:31:36.000 --> 00:31:37.599 music, especially if we're going to have it going the whole time, you 445 00:31:37.599 --> 00:31:41.640 don't want to drowned out. The people who are using their natural voices can 446 00:31:41.720 --> 00:31:48.480 reach out to the women going. Yeah, so I I love music when 447 00:31:48.559 --> 00:31:55.480 it's again in not ongoing. Yeah, it is difficult for me. I'm 448 00:31:55.519 --> 00:32:00.000 I'm not distracted by the pro abortion people, but I am distracted by music. 449 00:32:00.440 --> 00:32:06.440 Yeah, and it takes if the music is on and I have to 450 00:32:06.480 --> 00:32:10.480 either if someone turning it off while I'm calling out or I have to call 451 00:32:10.559 --> 00:32:15.880 out over the music. For me, that is difficult. That has always 452 00:32:15.960 --> 00:32:22.880 been difficult. So I think music can be really, really powerful out there, 453 00:32:22.920 --> 00:32:27.480 but again, I think for me it's better if it's in spurts, 454 00:32:27.519 --> 00:32:31.480 not constant, and that maybe there's someone there by the microphone manning the music 455 00:32:31.519 --> 00:32:37.079 and will turn it down when someone is calling out or even having a long 456 00:32:37.119 --> 00:32:42.599 conversation so that it does not become a distraction. Yeah, I know, 457 00:32:42.640 --> 00:32:46.319 one of the things to always teach when we talk about recon at the abortion 458 00:32:46.359 --> 00:32:51.240 center knowing what's going on, being aware. Yes, because you can catch 459 00:32:51.240 --> 00:32:53.480 a lot of things if your eyes are open and you're aware of what's going 460 00:32:53.559 --> 00:32:59.839 on there. You can see different people going in and out. Also awareness 461 00:32:59.839 --> 00:33:02.599 and sounds and noises, like you can pick up on conversations that are taking 462 00:33:02.640 --> 00:33:07.400 place over in a vehicle that you can maybe address and certainly be praying for. 463 00:33:07.480 --> 00:33:09.680 If there's, you know, some fighting going on between a couple or 464 00:33:09.680 --> 00:33:12.640 something like that, that can you could pick up on that. And if 465 00:33:12.640 --> 00:33:15.680 you get music playing you're not able to pick up on some of the son 466 00:33:15.720 --> 00:33:17.839 of the sounds that you could hear. That could make you more aware of 467 00:33:17.839 --> 00:33:22.200 your surrounding. So just things to consider as far as that goes. Yeah, 468 00:33:22.240 --> 00:33:25.480 but I think we're done with this podcast. I think you've given you 469 00:33:25.480 --> 00:33:30.279 guys some tips and some just things to be aware of.
