Sidewalk counseling ministry can be tough. Your heart breaks when you witness mamas, who are blinded and have no hope, going inside as we plead for the lives of their defenseless babies. In the midst of the difficulties and challenges, God has been so gracious to us in allowing us to witness so many mamas choose life. Oftentimes, we are privileged to have the opportunity to follow the journeys of these courageous women who choose life over death for their little ones. One such case was shared by Vicky Kaseorg, from our Monday sidewalk counseling team, who received a special message from a special young mama. What a beautiful sidewalk counseling testimony.
“This picture is part of a text message I got a couple of days ago. It is from a young lady I counseled on the sidewalk of the abortion mill. After my impassioned pleas for life, including some heart-felt tears, she left me, and went inside the abortion mill. I watched her walk in, and bowed my head in defeat. A little while later she emerged. She had told them to cancel her appointment.
Now, her heart is filled with joy to have learned the child she is carrying is a little girl.
‘I knew it!’ I texted back, “Look at that precious face!”
‘I know!!!!!’ she texted.
She told me I could share this picture of her darling baby with anyone I would like.
‘You bet I will,’ I texted.
This is one of the reasons I love God so much. How awesome He is to allow us to share in a miracle! How inspiring and tender it is for Him to let us see a glimpse of His purpose for us! How loving and gentle and merciful He is in turning despair and fear into blessing and joy.
Isaiah 61: 2-4
“…To comfort all who mourn, To grant those who mourn in Zion, Giving them a garland instead of ashes, The oil of gladness instead of mourning, The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified. Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins, They will raise up the former devastations; And they will repair the ruined cities.”
To God be the glory for this beautiful baby girl who will live because Vicky was there to reach out to this mama who needed to hear the message of God’s truth and love! Let us pray for a healthy pregnancy and that God would reveal Himself to this young mama as she experiences this little life growing inside her. If you would like to be a part of what God is doing on the sidewalks outside of local abortion mills and witness lives saved and changed, be sure to attend our Sidewalks 101 Training, which will take place on Saturday, April 26th at 9:00 am at Green Memorial Baptist Church, Charlotte.
