Blessings and Surprises

Monique Ruberu offered a reflection on her recent experience outside of the Philadelphia Women’s Center on August 27th.

Last Saturday our friends at 777 appletree took a lot of trouble to collect dog feces, transport it in a car and bring it to 777 where they graciously littered it over the sidewalk where we pray. 

So what did we do? We swept it away and continued praying… and then I sprinkled exorcised blessed salt all over the entire street and both sidewalks including the entryway to the abortion center =) God always wins =) 

When we continue to show up with love despite the persecution, despite the anger and upset, God continues to shine through us… Babies continue to have a glimmer of hope for survival.  Their precious lives are honored by someone. We can close our eyes knowing that we tried. 

Pat sent me the message that a few days ago there was a turnaround at 12th and locust – Such a blessing! 

Pray that our continued presence helps to turn the hearts and minds of these moms toward our sweet Jesus. May they feel His love and kindness.
