MELBOURNE, FL – Saturday, December 4, 1999 — A violation of the federal FACE law occurred today against Nancy Lally, a FACE-protected pro-life referral counselor, at the reproductive health service facility (aka abortion clinic) in Suntree Plaza known as WomanCare of Melbourne, Inc. This federal violation was reported to Louis Freeh, Director of the FBI.
This morning, 12/4/99, I was on the public sidewalk along Wickham Road at the northwest corner of Suntree Plaza. Suntree Plaza is a multi-business mall (about 10 businesses) open to the public, located in the northeast corner of the intersection of N. Wickham Road and St. Andrews Blvd. in the Suntree area of Brevard County north of Melbourne, Florida. One of the businesses in Suntree Plaza is the reproductive health service facility (abortion clinic) named WomanCare of Melbourne, Inc.
A little after 8 a.m. four clinic workers arrived and went inside. They were Jill Vogel, Lisa Sanford, Tiffany Alfieri, and a new worker whose name I do not know. About the same time, two women arrived separately and tried to enter the building. The door appeared to be locked and they could not get in. It appeared that they were early for their appointments so they sat down to wait on a bench that was located beside the door.
At about 8:25 a.m. I called Nancy, who I knew was at the southeast entrance to Suntree Plaza and out of view of the women on the bench, on my cell phone to tell her that the women were waiting outside. Nancy decided to provide reproductive health service referral information and counseling to the women.
Nancy walked up to the women and handed them the information. They accepted the literature. From where I was I could not hear what was said but I could clearly see what happened. Almost immediately Lisa Sanford came out and interfered with Nancy’s counseling by physically grabbing the literature from the women’s hands, physically getting between Nancy and the women, and escorting the women inside and closing the door. Nancy then left.
In my opinion this was a clear violation of Paragraph (a)(1) of 18 USC § 248 (FACE) which reads in part: “Prohibited Activities — Whoever — (1) by force … or by physical obstruction, intentionally … interferes with … any person because that person is … providing reproductive health services; … shall be subject to the penalties provided in subsection (b) and the civil remedies provided in subsection © …”
At about 8:50 a.m., the first of four Brevard County Sheriff’s Department patrol cars showed up. The first deputy sheriff went inside the abortion clinic. The others just hung around the plaza for most of the rest of the morning. I left about 11 a.m.
Nancy Lally reported this violation to Louis Freeh, Director of the FBI. All incidents of this type should be reported to the FBI in writing by Priority Mail. The address is:
Mr. Louis Freeh
Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

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.

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)
