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.

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!
Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.
Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

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.

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?
Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!
Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.
Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?
Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?
Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?
These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.
