DAY 35: Unplanned’s impact on the sidewalk

We prayed, hoped, and worked to make it happen–and it did!

The Unplanned film has brought MORE volunteers to YOUR lifesaving efforts on sidewalks in front of abortion facilities than ever before.

That means more lives saved, more abortion centers closed, and more workers like Abby experiencing conversion and leaving their jobs.

A large reason for this is the extensive media coverage. My favorite story (I’m biased) just came out on “the real Marilisa.” The piece covers my beautiful bride and mother to our 7 children. You can read it here:

Recently, I joined Glenn Beck to discuss Unplanned, the power of peaceful prayer, and how the sacrifices of ordinary people are ending abortion.

Here are a couple more articles:

Spring Valley, New York

Spring Valley has experienced frigid temperatures and sharp winds this campaign. But that isn’t stopping 40 Days for Life volunteers from standing vigil.

“Kathy had just told Ann that she should sit in her car because of the winds and temperatures,” said Eileen, the local leader. “Ann responded that she needed to sacrifice for the babies.

That’s when a vehicle pulled out of the strip mall housing Planned Parenthood. A woman rolled down her window and told volunteers that her pregnant daughter decided against abortion–all because she felt the prayers of those volunteers who dared to brave the wind and cold.

Bournemouth, England

A man named Adam became a weekly vigil participant at the campaign in Bournemouth…

…nearly two decades after he paid for an abortion!

His conversion came just a few months ago after he awoke from a nightmare about the abortion he financed. The dream was terrifying, but it spurred him to action.

Since becoming actively and publicly pro-life, he’s received a constant stream of insults, including warnings that he will lose his job. But the disparagement does not phase him as he is dedicated to witnessing to the evil of abortion.

Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sin is covered. Blessed is the one to whom the Lord shall not impute sin. — Romans 4:7-8

Our Most Gracious Heavenly Father, thank you for your amazing grace that saved a wretch like me. I come against the enemy of my soul who would have me feel cast down and dejected. Lord, keep your children from falling prey to the accusations of the father of lies. Turn our mourning into dancing and may we bring praise to you as we give testimony of Your healing and restoration in our lives.
