Welcome twins Harmony and Imani!

It was on May 11th when Sidewalk Advocates met with their mother and gave her the life saving hope she needed.  Just a few days after leaving the unlicensed American Family Planning abortion facility, she called us asking for help.  Since that day we have remained in constant communication with her, assisting her along the way.

Next Saturday, we get to celebrate with our hero mom as we host a baby shower for her next Saturday (11/3) at St. Rose of Lima in Milton at 2 PM.

During Monday’s 40 Days for Life vigil in Pensacola, as over THIRTY folks from St. Sylvester’s parish participated in the TWELVE hour vigil (from 6 AM to 6 PM) in front of the TEMPORARILY CLOSED abortion facility, they were able to speak to a young woman looking for PLANNED PARENTHOOD.  In particular she was looking for a pregnancy test.  The vigil participants referred her to a local pregnancy resource center for a FREE pregnancy test.  They called ahead for her.  She left knowing that she truly had help.  This is our FIRST recorded turn-a-way during this fall 2018 40 Days for Life campaign.  Thank you to the sidewalk advocates that were present to inform and assist this young lady that she had EXCELLENT alternatives available to her.  Thank you St. Sylvester’s parish for your faithful participation in 40 Days for Life.
Even though the American Family Planning abortion facility remains UNLICENSED to perform abortions, the abortion facility is NOT permanently closed.  Now more than ever, WE must PRAY, FAST, and PEACEFULLY VIGIL in front of the American Family Planning abortion facility.
OUR presence really does matter.  Where would this young woman be today, if it were not for our vigil participants and advocates being there for this young lady in her time of need?
40 Days for Life continues through November 4th.  Prayerfully consider taking time to PEACEFULLY PRAY in front of the American Family Planning abortion facility.
#PrayItPermanent

Here are comments from two individuals who went through our February 2018 training.

I plan to attend this training again…for the second time in as many months!!  It was that good!! Seriously this is one of the best things I have ever done to equip myself to speak to those who are abortion vulnerable 🙂  Love is the only way!  AC, Milton

My wife and I attended Sidewalk Advocates training in February in preparation for the Lenten 40 Days for Life Pensacola. It was a great seminar, arming us with Christ and proven techniques on how to use Love to reach out to mothers under duress from Society and give them options.  – Jim, Navarre

 

 

On Thursday in Pensacola, this gentleman pictured, one of our Sidewalk advocates, handed a mother seeking an abortion this life-saving information as she approached the entrance to the abortion facility.

She and her friend sat in the parking lot, reviewing the Information received in the brochure.  THey  never got out of their car.

Moments later the two women began to leave.  The advocate and vigil participant approached the vehicle as they exited the lot.

The friend driving opened her window, smiled at the Advocate and said, “She didn’t do it.”

Praise the Lord!

The Sidewalk Advocate and vigil participants were overcome with joy as this mother, who a short time ago thought abortion was her only option, now chooses life.

If it were not for the 40 Days for Life vigil participants and this courageous advocate, where would this mother be?  Would she have known about the life-saving options available her in order to make an informed decision to choose life?  Would she be mourning the loss of her child at this very moment?

This is the importance of authentic advocacy on the sidewalk coupled with prayer.  When we are present lives are saved, one life at a time.

Our work is not done.  May we continue to go to the sidewalk to advocate for more mothers and their babies.

 

This past Friday, we had a great number of people show up at the vigil, bringing the light of Christ’s love to the darkest place in our area.  Families and individuals willing to give of their own time to save the life of another.  There is one more week of 40 Days for Life left.  Come and vigil, prayerfully, for the conversion of hearts and minds.  Let’s cover every hour from 7 AM to 7 PM.  Let’s finish strong.
