A few nights ago, I shared the stage at a pregnancy center banquet in San Antonio with Abby Johnson, the former Planned Parenthood director who experienced a profound conversion and left the abortion industry during last fall’s 40 Days for Life campaign.
As Abby shared the story of her conversion, I was again amazed at how God has transformed her life — through the prayers and efforts of faithful people.
Here’s a brand-new video of Abby sharing her story — and the impact of 40 Days for Life on her:
Abby is just one of 35 abortion workers who have quit their jobs at 40 Days for Life locations.
We just received two more amazing reports …
Mike Stack, 40 Days for Life leader in Southfield, Michigan, reports:
A week or so ago we got word that the office manager at the Womancare Abortion facility where we have been holding the Southfield 40 Days for Life vigils quit her job.
A few of the prayer warriors during the Spring campaign had befriended her and found out that she really didn’t like working there but felt trapped and unable to find another job. One of the prayer warriors, Christine, arranged to get her resume and did a professional upgrade for her.
We put the word out to our prayer warriors and a couple months later Casey found a new job and has happily quit working for the abortion facility.
A couple days ago I learned that Christine befriended the office manager the day a car drove in the ditch.
During the night shift at the 40 Days for Life vigil (about 2 AM) a car pulled off the main road and into the ditch next to the abortion facility. The prayer warrior at the time (Mike) did what he could to help the man including lending him his cell phone (to call a tow truck).
It wasn’t too long before the Police were there too and when Mike turned to the driver to get his cell phone back the guy was gone. This guy did not want to interact with the police and took off on foot (with Mike’s cell phone).
In was a interesting story at the time, we had some good laughs about it but all felt bad for Mike losing his phone. Mike took it in stride and now feels it was well worth losing the phone when he found out how God used this event.
Christine was showing up for her vigil hour about the same time the office manager showed up for work that morning. They both were drawn to the odd site of the car in the ditch and started up a casual conversation that led to a more serious one — and eventually a new job for the office manager. Praise God!
And here is the latest from one of the 40 Days for Life coordinators in a location that must remain anonymous for now:
I just got word from an anonymous doctor friend of mine that an old school buddy of his quit the abortion clinic in our town, due to the peaceful ‘local uprising over the past year’ that made him feel ‘bad’ about what he was doing! He couldn’t handle how gentle and nice we were to the women going in, and even to him, as he came out.
It is truly a miracle that a soul so hardened has been touched by the peaceful and prayerful witness at the abortion mill! Peace, prayers and love works miracles — the gentleness, honestly and love saves souls in the long run!
Regardless of what is happening in the political arena or with the latest Supreme Court nomination, know that with God ALL things are possible — changing minds, touching hearts, saving lives, and impacting eternal souls.
Thank you for your prayers and participation in 40 Days for Life — and beyond.
We’re working aggressively on the Ending Abortion initiatives we told you about on the “Steadfast” teleconference and webcast, and can’t wait to tell you more over the coming weeks!
