City says Proclamation from Mayor’s Office praising OSA for their outstanding service to the city of New Orleans was “issued in error”. Here’s the link with a picture of the certificate from New Orleans Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu via WDSU News.
Operation Save America, New Orleans, 2014
Taking Territory, Wednesday, July 23rd
On Wednesday, Operation Save America teams canvassed New Orleans. Two teams arrived at the local abortion clinics. Another team led by Pastor Dale Sochia traveled to Barre Mcneely Investments to confront Larry McNeely, the general contractor trying vainly to build Planned Parenthood. Pastor Dale’s team set up in front of 4925 Jefferson Hwy, in Jefferson, Louisiana and gave the company heaven. BMI called the police to claim OSA was trespassing on private property when, in fact, OSA was on the sidewalk. BMI tried to convince the police that the sidewalk was within their property line. Pastor Dale knows the legal requirements for construction. When the police arrived, he asked that a proper survey be conducted.
After the survey was completed, OSA had MORE public space to witness in then the actual physical sidewalk. OSA then had access to the sidewalk and a twelve foot wide swath of cement directly in front of BMI. Despite the survey results, BMI claimed the twelve foot swath was part of its parking lot and driveway. To abide by the law, OSA members walked back in forth in the 12 foot wide area so as not to block BMI’s “driveway” on public land.
The contracting company thought it would circumvent the survey and the law by blocking the public area with a line of orange cones and tape. In doing so, BMI inadvertently made the public witness of its company easier. With the cones up, the space was no longer a driveway. OSA members were now under no legal requirement to keep moving, since there was no danger of blocking a driveway on public property. OSA members were than free to stand directly in front of BMI with their signs. OSA took territory today! Please contact Larry McNeely, the general contractor of BMI, 504-324-9140 firstname.lastname@example.org) and let him know lovingly, but firmly that he needs to stop the construction of Planned Parenthood. The blood money will curse his life (Deuteronomy 27:25).
While OSA members confronted BMI for its complicity in child killing, another team was sent to the proposed construction site of Planned Parenthood. The team practiced “Word in Warfare,” the concentrated focused reading of the Bible as a form of prophetic prayer and confession. As Christians surrounded the site in prayer and worship, others grouped together in small numbers to read the Word aloud. Others held posters of aborted babies and waved at passing cars.
During the “Word in Warfare,” senior citizens sat on lawn chairs under umbrellas, their precious Bibles in their laps; little children sat on the grass and toddlers reclined in strollers as mothers and fathers read the Bible out loud as a family; young people gathered quietly in groups and took turns reading the designated chapters. Until the rain. It began as a sprinkle. Soon it was a shower. Undeterred, the faithful Christians opened umbrellas, put on raingear and plastic bags as overcoats, used the large posters as makeshift canopies, and retreated under small tents set up for shade. Still the reading of the Word continued. So did the public witness.
As people prayed that the heavens would open and God would hear the prayers and confession of repentance, the heavens really did open, just not as expected. The shower turned into a downpour. The street and construction site flooded. Muddy streams overflowed the sidewalks. Flash flood warnings buzzed and vibrated on cell phones. The sand already placed as part of the foundation of the proposed mega killing center was washed away in the deluge. Not only has the building project been ground to a halt, but the work they have done, the Lord is washing away. Glory to His name!
The drenching was so great, the elderly, the children, the young people all looked liked they went swimming in their street clothes. In a show of supplication to God, the wet and wearied Christians stayed at the construction site. They moved to vehicles and read and prayed from the side of the road. After about an hour, the sun broke out and the rain ended. The Christians piled out of cars and vans and finished their Bible readings outside. Photographers from the Advocate and representatives from other media took pictures and filmed the soggy saints. At the conclusion of the “warfare,” saints worshiped and kneeled in prayer, grateful for the opportunity to stand for the Lord through the rain.
Operation Save America, New Orleans, 2014
“Somebody is doin’ Something” Monday, July 21st
On Monday, Operation Save America sent teams to locations throughout the city of New Orleans. Word in Warfare showed up at the building site of the proposed Planned Parenthood. The saints unsheathed the Sword of the Spirit and proclaimed the Word of God over the area throughout the day. By Friday the entire Bible will be declared before OSA departs from New Orleans.
A team was sent to the University of New Orleans to share the Gospel with summer students. Monday also found the OSA members at abortion clinics and at overpasses holding giant signs. The morning traffic report cited “protestors” on the overpass as causing delays. Thousands of vehicles were confronted with the horrible truth of what our nation is doing to God’s little image-bearers.
OSA also reached beyond the city of New Orleans to touch Shreveport, the third largest city in the state of Louisiana. A team led by Cal Zastrow traveled over eight hours roundtrip to minister the love of Jesus and the truth about abortion to the residents of the “port city.” A local group led by brother Seth Capps welcomed Cal’s team and together they exposed the unfruitful deeds pf darkness.
The OSA team arrived at a huge hospital complex where the abortionist has an obstetrics, gynecology practice and hospital admitting privileges. OSA members began the public awareness campaign and within a minute the security guard and police arrived. The team then moved to the busiest entrance that had a traffic light. They pulled out the signs and passed out literature. They prayed, played the guitar, and worshiped the Lord.
As OSA witnessed, residents of Shreveport stopped. A number of people were so touched by the witness they pulled over, reached into their pockets, and gave money. Five dollars. Ten dollars. Fourteen year old, Sam stood in the median with a giant poster. A person pulled over and gave Sam a hundred dollars in support of the work.
Seven locals joined OSA’s outreach. Another five stopped and got out of their cars to help when they viewed the signs. One woman was particularly moved. She noticed the aborted baby signs. She and her husband are parents to five adopted special needs children. The mother was there to take her disabled daughter to a doctor’s appointment. Her daughter needed her arm and leg braces fixed. When the woman observed the witness, she told her daughter, “Somebody is doin’ something. We gotta stop and help.”
Operation Save America, New Orleans, 2014
Operation Save America visited the heart of the Big Easy with the truth of God. The residents of the “Mardi Gras City” heard the Gospel preached on loudspeakers, read the Gospel message in tracts, and saw the Gospel message of life on poster boards. The Word of God penetrated the city of corruption.
Tuesday marked OSA’s funeral procession and memorial service in honor of Amos, a victim of abortion. Amos means “to carry” and “borne by God,” a fitting name for a precious unborn child carried in his mother’s womb. Sadly, Amos’ mother chose to end his life. He was then borne by God to eternity. Today, Amos was carried somewhere he probably wouldn’t have chosen- his own memorial service.
As bagpipes played a dirge and young people marched with flags reading “Justice for the Unborn,” pallbearers carried Amos through the French Quarter. A hundred or more mourners followed in silence. The funeral procession began in Jackson Square, a historic park in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana, and ended in front of the St. Louis Cathedral, the “Jewel of the French Quarter.”
Mourners gathered on the steps across from the cathedral, one of the oldest in the United States. A simple white casket lay on a table, surrounded by flags and mourners. In the background, a tall American flag waved from the grounds of the cathedral.
When the memorial service blasted over the sound system, bystanders stopped to take in the scene. Rev. Flip Benham, National Director of OSA, addressed the gathering. He was followed by Beck Puckett who shared from Amos 1:13, “Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up the women with child of Gilead, that they might enlarge the their border.”
Becky compared America’s sin of abortion to Ammon’s sin of abortion/population control. Shelly Clegg shared her moving post-abortion testimony. And spoke on the need to protect and cherish all human life-preborn and those born with special needs. Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life gave the eulogy. His message was “Blessed are those who mourn, they shall be comforted.” He explained the importance of honoring the memory of the victims of abortion and reminded the city that God made life in His image. For this reason, human life is sacred. Even in death, victims of abortion must be remembered. Their care, even in death, must not be forgotten.
At the conclusion of the service, mourners were invited to come forward and view the body. As the crowd approached, a song cut through the bustling noise of the city. The refrain was, “God have mercy.” Over and over, the city heard, “God have mercy. God have mercy.” The spirit of God fell. His presence came in power. The young people in OSA were particularly touched. It was as if God lifted the veil of deception and ushered the youth into a private viewing of abortion. Tears streamed down their faces. A spirit of brokenness and repentance overwhelmed them. The face of each young person registered the horror and grief that is abortion.
One of the nicknames for New Orleans is “the City that Care Forgot.” That nickname proved untrue today. Care came wrapped in the body of Christ. Care was heard in the message of the Gospel. Care was seen in the love of the person who gave out Gospel tracts. And as person after person approached the casket, person after person cared for Amos and the little lives of unborn babies.
As “the City that Care Forgot” felt the care of the Lord, an unseen, unnamed person slowly lowered the flag at St. Louis Cathedral’s to half-staff. In a public display of mourning, New Orleans grieved her sin. For just a moment, “the City that Care Forgot,” remembered.
Operation Save America, New Orleans, 2014
The Macedonian Call, Sunday, July 20
“Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia, After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not. And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas. And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us. And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them” (Acts 16:6-10).
Sunday marked Operation Save America’s second official day in New Orleans, Louisiana. Local churches invited OSA to minister in New Orleans and the surrounding areas. To have their invitation, covering and blessing, is a great boost to the Lord’s work against the gates of hell.
Once in a host city, OSA extends a “Macedonian Call” to other area churches. After a continental breakfast at the hotel on Sunday morning, representatives from OSA attended close to 40 church services throughout the city. They worshiped with the churches, greeted the pastors and church leadership, invited them to lunch, passed out materials that articulated the vision, and invited these congregations to our Solemn Assembly Sunday evening. Later, they gather the church contact information and give it to the local pastoral leaders to follow up after OSA has completed their mission in their city.
At the Unitarian Universalist “church” in New Orleans, Deanna Waller, Jay Rogers, Mary Claire, Ken Scott, Russell Hunter, Toby Harman and others presented the truth of the Gospel in this synagogue of Satan. As God would have it, the “church” was filled with students from a “social justice” training school. According to Rev. Flip Benham, OSA National Director, the team presented a “dynamic witness.”
During an open “meditation” time, Deanna shared the Word of the Lord. When the female “pastor” took issue, Deanna reminded her that, “It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones” (Luke 17:2). In violation of their “sacred tenants” of peace and tolerance, Deanna and others were summarily escorted out of the service.
Other saints stayed and dialoged until the conclusion of the service. It created no small stir. The “social justice” candidates ran to the Christians and asked them many questions. Our brethren gave them the reason for the hope that lies within them and defended the faith. Seeds of truth were sown. may the Lord water them in Jesus’ name.
After lunch, the saints traveled to two abortionists’ neighborhoods for public awareness campaigns. Awareness campaigns involve disseminating information to notify communities that one of their neighbors murder babies. OSA members visited Mary Gardner’s and Roshanda Dean’s home, both of the Women’s Health Care Center in New Orleans. The flyer given out in Dean’s neighborhood read in part, “Roshanda Dean is our neighbor. As Christians we are called to love her. Our actions may bring her to Jesus and eternal life. Encourage her to repent of the mass murder of the Lord’s preborn children.”
According to Cal Zastrow, the outreach at Dean’s neighborhood was “very well received.” People did not know there was an abortionist in the neighborhood yet “nobody was hostile to us.” The saints held large signs. The young people worshiped the Lord with violins and guitars. OSA members were even able to minister and pray for a few individuals. Just before they left, a representative from the sheriff’s department approached them. He mentioned that there had been five fatal shootings in the area recently and thanked OSA for caring enough to come to their troubled neighborhood.
The Campano family participated in the “awareness campaign.” As they and the Zastrow family ministered together, a group of people came out of a house and began asking questions. One of the people, a teenage boy, listened with particular interest. Frank started preaching the Gospel. Frank told the teenager that God sent them all the way from Florida and Michigan to minister the Good News. The Holy Spirit fell on the teenager. He started weeping.
Sunday evening called for a city wide Solemn Assembly. During this evening rally at Williams Boulevard Baptist Church, Rev. Flip reminded the saints “We must first get the plank out of our own eye to see clearly to remove the specks from New Orleans.”
With a blast of the shofar (Horn) the meeting was called to order. The saints of God reported for inspection before the Holy One of Israel. The divine purpose was to take ownership for our personal, church, and national sins. Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas led the way to deal with the personal sins of those present. The Scripture read to prepare the way was taken from Psalm 139:23, 24, which states, “Search me, O God, and know my heart;Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.”
The penetrating questions presented to those gathered to prayer was, “What are we saying, doing, thinking, or acting that is contributing to the moral corruption and demise of our nation? What besetting sins do we struggle with that impedes the much needed awakening and revival our nation desperately needs?”
Bishop Otis Kenner followed up on personal sins. He went after the spiritual strongholds of the saints these sins opened to defeat them in their obedience to God. Ghet Gallagher, Dr. Byron Clay and the nephew of Martin Luther King Jr. addressed the sins of the church. The call was to repent of our apathy, indolence, and indifference in a time of great injustice. The church has failed to be the salt and light that is suppose to check the spread of moral decay that invokes God’s judgment upon our nation.
Finally, Pastor Rod Aguillard, his son Steven, and our host pastor, Tim Williams concluded the Solemn Assembly with our national sins. Pastor Rod declared that the walls of America are down in America, God’s hand of protection has been removed, and our nation is swiftly heading towards great calamity. He exhorted us to repent and rebuild the wall by prayer and action.
Our host pastor, Tim Williams, led us to our knees to humble ourselves before the Lord. He called us to repent of pride, arrogance, and haughtiness. Our nation glories in its shame and boasts in its abominations.
Our Solemn Assemblies sets the right spiritual tone for the entire week of Gospel outreaches. Bishop Kenner who helped to lead in prayer told Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas today, “I went home and I could not sleep. My heart burned within me!” Coincidentally, that was an answer to a prayer as the saints marched into New Orleans, “May our hearts once again burn with the revelation of God.”
Today Bishop Kenner joined with the saints as we took the Gospel of the Kingdom to the streets of New Orleans to defeat the culture of death in Jesus’ name!
Operation Save America, New Orleans, 2014
The Saints Come Marching In, Saturday, July 19
Today marked the commencement of Operation Save America’s New Orleans National Event. Christians of various denominations, ethnicities, educational backgrounds, and professions joined together to share the Gospel of the Kingdom on the streets of New Orleans.
After three days of fasting and prayer, OSA members from as far away as California, Nevada, Colorado, New York, North Carolina, Florida, and Connecticut gathered in Louisiana. Others traveled shorter distances and
rolled in from Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and other southern states. OSA members poured out of rental cars, 15 passenger vans, airport shuttles, trucks, and vinyl covered “Truth Trucks” covered with pictures of aborted babies.
New Orleans is known for sweltering heat and humidity, a concern to the elderly, frail, and those with small children. Undeterred, several saints of the Lord answered the call to stand “for the least of these” in New Orleans. Driven by the Lord’s command to “rescue those unjustly sentenced to death” and to “do unto others as ye would have them do to you,” OSA members arrived at the abortion clinic on Causeway to plead for the lives of unborn babies and the souls of the lost, despite the summer heat. God blessed their obedience. His mercy showered on the saints, literally. The heavens opened and released rain on the group, keeping the temperatures down and the saints refreshed.
When the Saturday’s outreach was over, members shared a splash in the hotel’s large outdoor swimming pool or dined together at local eateries. OSA is a diverse gathering of pastors and saints that live out their faith with a multigenerational vision. They gather together as great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, young adults, and children to serve the Lord and end the American holocaust. The bustling OSA crowd made the hotel lobby look like a Hallmark greeting card for traditional values.
No deaths were reported in Metairie, LA. It appeared the death camps were shut down. Local pro-lifers described the Causeway Medical Clinic as looking markedly different from its normal Saturday operations. Abortion supporters far outweighed any apparent pregnant women. OSA leaders believe pro-abortion supporters put on a theater production, lining the walkway with yellow vested “deathscorts” and ushering in a handful of “actors” to give the appearance of an open clinic. Can someone spell, STAGED?
As his fashion, Rev. Flip Benham patrolled the gathering to speak encouragement to God’s people. He shared his years of wisdom and insight and shored up the saints. He equipped the saints to do “battle,” even as he searched for the lost.
Saints used the time on the street to share the Gospel of the Kingdom to abortion supporters. OSA leader Chet Gallagher, Pastor Bill Shanks of New Orleans, Assistant to the Director, Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, and Pastor Bill
Dunfey from Ohio addressed the “deathscorts” over a sound system. The appeal was personal and compelling.
The Causeway death camp was besieged by prayer, worship, and the public proclamation of the Gospel. Saints walked the sidewalks praying and interceding. Led by Mario More’s strong baritone voice, Anita and Alyss
Villavaso, Maranatha and Sophia Thomas, Kimberlee Puccio, and Charity Johnston sang worship songs. Anna and James Johnston and Josiah Thomas played guitars.
Later, the saints visited the home and neighborhood of abortionist Mary Gardner. Reverends Flip and Rusty and Pastor Bill Shanks went to Gardner’s house. The men of God approached the front door to deliver God’s mail,
“Repent of the sin of child sacrifice and the shedding of innocent blood and to receive the tender mercies of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Gardner was not home but the message was left. Saints lined her neighborhood streets
with signs that revealed the violence of abortion, leafleted the neighborhood to warn the neighborhood that a serial killer was in their midst.
Finally, the neighborhood was encouraged to pray for Gardner, that she might use her medical skills to save life rather than destroy life. As often happens, the truth caused “trouble” for the community. But who brought the trouble, really? Just like Elijah, OSA members respond, “We have not troubled the neighborhood, but your abortionist neighbor has forsaken the commandments of the Lord and followed after the idol of child sacrifice. Have we become your enemy by telling you the truth?”
Christian pro-life leaders from across the nation will be gathering in New Orleans this July 19-26, 2014 to join the Church of Jesus Christ in this city to bring abortion to an end.
We are not waiting for the President, nor the Congress, nor the Supreme Court of our land to stop the killing of little baby boys and girls. This responsibility rests squarely upon the shoulders of the Church of Jesus Christ. We are to love our little neighbors as we love ourselves. No longer will we stand by while little children die.
“Abortion will come to an end when the Church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind it will end and not one second sooner” said Rev. Flip Benham, Director of Operation Save America.
“We are joining our brothers and sisters in Christ in Dayton, Ohio, Atlanta, Georgia and in Kissimmee, Florida who are this very day, allowing the theology of heaven to become biography in the streets of their respective cities.
The gentle revolution has begun!

Brother Frommeyer: Just saying no to a dirty job
You’ve heard the advertising slogan countless times, made famous by the dulcet tones of the late Buddy Diliberto on WWL radio.
When River Parish Disposal started promoting its trash-hauling business 30 years ago as part of the New Orleans Saints’ broadcasts, little did Weldon Frommeyer and his son “Brother” know there was glory in garbage.
“River Parish Disposal,” Buddy D. would spout, setting up the punch line. “Our business stinks, but it’s picking up!”
Brother Frommeyer, now 32, played football at John Curtis Christian School and was an under-the-radar, 6-foot-2, 245-pound defensive end for Nick Saban at LSU. He didn’t play a lot, but he had the kind of relentless work ethic, taught behind the wheel of a dumpster, that impressed Saban.
After football season, and especially during the peak garbage times of Mardi Gras, Brother made sure to come home to Metairie to help his dad with his growing business, which he started 35 years ago with one truck and one employee.
When Brother – he got the name in part because he was the only boy among four sisters – told his dad he would get a side job to help with expenses during college, his father told him to concentrate on his studies and get his degree.
“He wanted me to stay in college and do well and get a degree and play football,” Brother said. “He gave me an allowance, and he took care of me like I’m sure any parent would love to do. I was blessed to have him do that for me, so any time he needed me, I was there for him.”
Joined dad after LSU
After finishing up at LSU, Brother joined River Parish Disposal full time and is now vice president. Any business, especially the trash-hauling business, is relationships. So when Brother received a phone call from a contractor to handle the construction debris at a medical center being built on South Claiborne Avenue in New Orleans, it was an easy to say yes to someone for whom he had worked previously.
His father agreed. Brother approached the contractor and asked to be relieved from the contract. His request was granted.
Guided by principle
“This was very important for me to make this decision because, first of all, I’m Catholic and we have our beliefs,” Brother said. “That’s No. 1. Second of all, I’m just the type of person, in anything I do, that I don’t want anybody to think negative of me. I’m always out there trying to help the community.”
Since pulling his equipment, Brother wrote a letter to everyone who had emailed him urging him to have nothing to do with Planned Parenthood. In response, he’s received an avalanche of positive emails praising the company for its decision. He also sent a certified letter to Archbishop Gregory Aymond, who in February had urged businesses not to offer their services to help Planned Parenthood build its facility.
“By the response I’ve been getting, it’s looking good,” Brother said. “I think a lot of people who are raised in this city know that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. I’ve also heard the saying, ‘People will open up more doors than you have the keys to.’ That’s basically saying the same thing. I call New Orleans the biggest small city, because everybody knows everybody. By doing the right thing, trust me, the word will get out.”
A future supporter
One email Brother received illustrated that. It was from a woman, whose husband is a contractor.
“She said they were always looking for people who do the right thing, and River Parish Disposal is now definitely on the top of their list to call for business,” Brother said.
In one of his recent commercials, Brother said he often is asked what religious order he belongs to. He jokingly admits he’s “taken confessions” from plenty of people displeased with their waste-disposal service.
As a kid, when he attended St. Stanislaus day camp, operated by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, he got a lot of ribbing from his friends.
“They would always say, ‘Man, Brother, when you become a brother, what are they going to call you, ‘Brother Brother’?” he said.
No, he hasn’t taken vows, but he made one. On behalf of life.
To quote from Alice in Wonderland, “…things are getting curiouser and curiouser.” This report from the Uptown Messenger in New Orleans certainly appears to suspect that something is afoot as OSA prepares to allow the theology of heaven to become biography is the streets of New Orleans this July 19-26, 2014. As always, we are painted as right wing fundamentalists, armed with daggers between our teeth and Molotov cocktails in our hands.
What really is upsetting the Uptown Messenger is – Jesus! It simply cannot tolerate Him being allowed out of the closet and released into the streets of a city that really wants nothing to do withHim. You see, there would be no problem with abortion if it were not for Him. There would be no problem with sexual perversion if it weren’t for Him. There would be no problem with false religions, witchcraft, paganism, ad nauseam, if it weren’t for Him. There would be no problem with greed, drunkenness, adultery, idolatry, homosexuality, swindlers, or slanderers were it not for Him.
Yep! The devil has been partying in New Orleans for quite a while now, and God’s church is coming to the party. I wonder how the gates of hell will fare when the church of Jesus Christ shows up at the doorstep?
Oh wait – I think I know!
Here is an incredible report from Brandon and Michelle Stewart about the Houston Project. As most of you know, Houston has 15 abortion mills within its city limits. It has been left largely untouched by God’s church.
Not any more! Brandon, Michelle and their family have been going to the exposed places in the wall in their city and God is showing up. The saints in Houston have found new hope as the theology of heaven is becoming
biography at the gates of hell.
This week we had 5 saves at Houston Women’s Clinic. What a wonderful week it was for Christians who have tirelessly labored in the city ravaged by the effects of sin. I am happy to report that the new HB2 legislation is
shutting down 13 of the 15 killing places, by September 1. We praise and thank King Jesus for this victory. Now we will be able to more effectively witness as we can conquer by joining together on two sidewalks.
Today we had fun ministering and were very surprised when the police showed up. They were not called to come, but nevertheless, three squad cars lined up side to side blocked the one way street’s only two entrances to the
clinic for over 10 minutes. We are believing that this caused unconfirmed turnaways.
