I spent about two hours with this young woman at lunch after church on Sunday, August 21st, 2011, one day after she quit working at a local abortion center. Meeting with her, having the opportunity to share my faith and what I sensed the Holy Spirit prompted me to say to her was one of the most profound moments of my life. I told her that God had another job for her making more money.
I hope that people who read this blog will pray for Clarissa. I know that “the effectual fervent prayers of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16). More abortion center workers will quit and come to serve God in 2012 in Jesus’ name!
Today was the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, almost exactly five months after she walked off her job. She gave the following testimony this morning:
Reported by Deanna Waller
An abortion clinic worker in Orlando quit on the spot one Saturday morning, August 20th, 2011 after talking with pro-life sidewalk counselor Daniel Howell and several of the sidewalk team who minister each week at All Women’s Health Center abortion mill in Altamonte Springs, Florida. She never made it inside. We invited her to church the next day. She attended and sat with us.
Clarissa came to church again the next week and publicly professed faith in Christ during an evangelistic service. She has not missed a Sunday at church since and has been attending a small group with a family on Sunday evenings. She is also attending a financial freedom class at this church, Freedom Fellowship in Apopka, Florida, on Thursday evenings.
Everyone did a wonderful job at pulling together to help her financially and spiritually during this new season of her life. A few weeks later, we got a text message from Clarissa saying:
“Woooooo! PRAISE GOD! I got a job at a Dr’s office starting Wed! It’s part time but will go full time!”
The new job was near her home and she began making $1.00 and hour more than she was making at the abortion center. Since then, she became full-time and has recently been promoted.
Clarissa took a very bold step of faith quitting on the spot and turning away from evil without a financial safety net. She is a single mom with four children and is post-abortive herself. If you have a heart for pro-life ministry, pray for her because she has said she wants to begin volunteering in some type of pro-life outreach.

“Give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.
The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.
