Dr. Monique Ruberu has shared about a baby being saved on Good Friday. She shares from the firsthand account of a new sidewalk servant that participated for the first time.
Christine is one of our newer sidewalk servants… like many of us she doesn’t like being there alone… but look what happens when we overcome our fears…
I was signed for this morning at Appletree but I realized no one was signed up for after 12. So I decided to stay until I needed to leave to get to church this afternoon.
I have a very hard time approaching women to offer them resources, especially when I am alone. Much of the time outside of the clinic, I pray. Frankly, I am afraid. Today, I asked the Holy Spirit to guide me and help me know what to say.
A car pulled off to the side of Appletree with a mother, a father and a toddler. The mother got out. She paced the entrance of the clinic a few times. I decided to approach her. I said, “Excuse me, Miss. I noticed you have walked back and forth a few times. Can I offer you some resources? There are people who can help you if you are in a difficult situation.” She took the bag without saying anything and walked away from myself, the clinic, and her car and headed towards 8th Street
. Thinking maybe she was using a Sid entrance to the clinic, I resumed prayer. To my surprise she crossed 8th street
, continuing away from the clinic and her family.
About 10 minutes later she came back and returned to the car. The father of the baby was standing outside of the car with the other toddler. They were out of earshot but the mother went up to him and showed him one the unfolded Pro-Life pamphlets in our bag, pointing to it, showing him the contents. They got in their car.
The car didn’t move for about 5 minutes. Maybe they were still weighing their options. Maybe they were calling one of the numbers in the pamphlet. I watched and prayed fervently that they would decide to leave.
Finally, they pulled away! I continue to pray for that family that they choose life and are given the resources and support that they need.
When we show up and pray hearts and minds are moved, people leave…
