USA – 40 Days for Life testimony – October 27, 2020



True story that happened in front of Planned Parenthood, Mount Vernon where more than 200 lives are killed each year.

I was at the end of my hour, 9:45, at Planned Parenthood this morning. Lot’s of staff there today, 12 cars and lots of young people. A car with a middle-aged Hispanic lady went to pull in and stopped and waved at me before she did. I don’t recall anything like that happening before. I waved and continued to walk and pray, “Choose life. Choose life.” At the same time the thought came to me that as soon as I left, I needed to get something to eat before I drive out to work on the shop at Cheryl’s. At 9:53, the lady that had just came pulled out drove to where I was standing with my sign. I walked to the car and looked at her glowing face. She said I want to thank you for being here. My husband and I were up all night praying for a young girl that planned on getting an abortion. She just called me and asked me to come. They let me pray with her and she chose to cancel the abortion. We were both so humbly blessed. Then she said, “By the way, are you hungry? Before I got the call I just purchased a sandwich. Can I give it to you?”
So amazing, awkward and almost embarrassing to receive God’s unconditional love simply because you love Him and are willing to “Listen and obey.”
Amazing love
We can’t outgive Him, outlive Him or outlove Him.

“Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides You.”

Psalm 73:25



USA – Harvest Kids – October 24, 2020

Brrr! Our first “ice on the windshield” morning to pick up kids in Granite Falls for Harvest Kids. It was a wonderful morning to add some change to the bullet that is being filled up to help build the primary school in central Africa. We listened to some awesome music and then shared testimonies about our friend Cecilia from the Navajo Reservation. She is scheduled for surgery for cancer in 4 days. We also shared about the situation that our Mexico coordinator, Olivia, is in not being able to travel back to Mexico for over 3 months while she is waiting for US immigration to review her resident status. She continues to minister to children in Arizona while her husband, Miguel, continues to maintain the ministry in Mexico. Cecilia and Olivia have both visited Harvest Kids and have their handprints on the wall and their names inscribed in the hearts of these kids. The kids were excited to make cards to send to both of them. Many thanks to Samantha’s mom, Jen, who made caramel apples that we celebrated October birthdays with. We were also blessed with a visit from Pastor Garnett Pipps from North Carolina who is staying with George and Linda while he is preaching at a 9-day revival at the Sedro Woolley Community Church. The kids all went shopping to purchase items to fill up four Christmas shoeboxes for Samaritan’s Purse that will be sent to vulnerable children in different countries around the globe. The kids did some flag worship at the Garden of Eden family ministry in Mt. Vernon and spent the rest of the evening making necklaces and painting.

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!”

Isaiah 52:7
