In the year of 2003 we witnessed:
10 salvations. 298 babies saved. 14 documented saved births through Small Victories. 4 documented botched abortions; approximately 7,328 babies killed. This is only a morning death-toll figure.
Last weekend we had one save, one salvation outside Planned Parenthood. see streets report below.
51 babies killed. 0 babies saved. 839 babies saved since January 2000!
One baby saved at P.P. and one salvation at P.P. St. Louis, M)!
"There's money to be HAD!" or so we thought. Can Hope(less) child-killing machine be in disrepair? For the past four days, not one child has died in Granite City, IL. A 6.5 earthquake devastates Iran, they've accounted for 15,000 dead victims. Media has done a good job covering this story, unfortunately, the 15,000-lil boys and girls that are victimized and killed in Granite City, IL in the past two years, go unnoticed. In the past year there have been at least four documented "botched" abortions. In all four cases, these mothers were rushed across the street, fighting for their lives, to the complacent, pagan hospital, Gateway Regional Medical Center, which continues to hoard a serial killer and cover-up his sloppy "grossly negligent" butchery on these women. These women have had to have emergency hysterectomies, bowel repair, multiple blood transfusions, etc, in order to save their lives. Still, no outcry! Where's the investigations? The Health Department? The average abortion costs between $400.00-$2400.00, lets estimate $500.00 dollars at 30 a day, times that by five days work, now this is only a morning count of killings. "Show me the money" workers showed up on Friday and were turned away, no abortionist on duty!
Next day, Saturday the most lucrative killing day of the week at this mill, deathscorts showed up… still no abortionist. The message on the answering service says, "they are closed for the holiday". Would someone please let the employees and deathscorts know. See recent articles on Hope(less) including "At least women knew what they were getting with a coat hanger" and "Abortionist Darwin Jackson Jr, "OUSTED" from Mecca of the Midwest slaughterhouse". Yogendra Shah and Allan Palmer are the two remaining "Jack the Rippers" of our day left at Hope(less), with Palmer doing most of the grisly deeds at least four days a week. His most recent victim was a lil girl, sixteen weeks old. It was another assembly line day inside the extermination camp, but Palmer was forcing a two-day procedure into a one day on this little girl,..she didn't get the usual digoxin shot in her heart to either slow her movements down or stop it from beating all together, Palmer decided to just start jabbing large forceps at her, grabbing her lil arms and "snap" and breaking them off, as this baby struggled for her life.
Finally, Palmer kept yelling at the chief "butcherette" appropriately named "Toni Botsch",.."Is it there yet?" again… "Is it there yet"? Tenseness was filling the air then moments later, "there it is"! This lil girl's head about the size of a golf-ball was retrieved and placed alongside the other dismembered body parts. By this time the mother was screaming for help and a ambulance, She knew something was wrong and could feel the warm fluid pooling beneath her as she lay on the table. "Shut up!" Allan Palmer screamed at her, and threw the instruments onto the tray and walked out of the room. The employees kept trying to assure this terrified woman that nothing was wrong,… when this mother demanded to be taken across the street to the hospital for treatment, Hope employees refused. They stated "We can't take you over there like this!"… they then proceeded to keep shoving rolls and rolls of gauze into her mutilated womb… what was left of it." This abortion mill is on the ropes, now, even the bottom-feeders are not showing up. There is a high employee turn-over again, due to the latest botched abortion.
For the abortion industry, the real problem is that being an abortionist is not consistent with the image that the medical community wants to project. If you survey 100,000 physicians regarding their political positions on abortion, you'll get 100,000 different opinions.
But ask them what they think about abortionists, and there will be virtual unanimity. Even the most hard-core abortion advocate knows that abortionists are the losers and washouts of medicine. While few may publicly admit it, they all realize that no one goes through the ordeal of medical school, internship, and residency to be known as an abortionist. Legalizing abortion may have kept a lot of abortionists from going to jail, but it did absolutely nothing to change the perception that they are the scum of the medical community.
We have had more salvations and saves in the past year than all ten years on these frontlines combined. God is moving in Granite City, IL. It's time to fumigate. Now is not the time to be shrinking back, we the Church of Jesus Christ have been born for such a time as this! Philippians 1:27-29 "Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved-and that by God. For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him, since are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have."
"Unless a man becomes the enemy of evil, he will not even become its slave, but rather its champion. God Himself will not help us to ignore evil, but only to defy and defeat it!" G. K. Chesterton

178 babies killed. 3 babies saved. 839 babies saved since January 2000!
Is abortion terrorism? It all depends on which end of the knife you're on. I've said this before, "the most dangerous place today, it's not the Golden Gate Bridge, it's not the Sears tower, it's not even the Iraqi desert, it is in a mother's womb". Some choice. If Mary and Joseph had visited Hope(less) or Planned "Barrenhood" they could of sacrificed the preborn baby Jesus on the altar of stainless steel to the god of convenience, after all Mary had every excuse, she's only a teenager, un-married, no housing, and at Mary's whim, or Joseph's urgency, the Prince of Peace could of become, Choice on earth. As the abortion industry does it's all to mock the birth of Christ. Planned "Barrenhood" uses the word "choice", in place of abortion, and the abortion industry is using Christmas to continue spreading their message of "dead and mutilated babies and wounded and butchered mothers" Choice use to mean chocolate or vanilla, regular or decaffeinated, leaded or un-leaded.
A look at some of the "choices" of the potential human being: He gets a vacuum to suck his brains out, sharp knives, forceps/clamps with 3 sharp teeth at end. Also, an injection in his heart, he gets to be poisoned, chemical peal, and he gets to feel the pain of being dismembered. His burial is by sewer. SOME CHOICE! Choice and murder are the same thing depending on what side of the knife you're looking at.
A baby can potentially be, I'm being politically correct here, a pig, tissue, a skyscraper, a box of Kleenex, a scud missile, a cow…potential,... my foot, we call it a baby. Your doctor doesn't say, "let's check on your potential human baby."
"America is now experiencing the same kind of religious terrorism that abortion providers have endured for over a quarter of a century while providing health care for women." Yes, 4400 little baby boys and girls are being terrorized, tortured, and murdered every day in America by those who would have you believe that they are the ones being terrorized. These terrorists don’t knock at the door of the mother’s womb – they barge in and begin ripping off arms and legs of defenseless children. When we show them the horrible carnage of what they do, they simply call it a "product of conception" and tell us that we are the ones terrorizing them by holding pictures of aborted children. This self-promotional campaign would be better called the victimization of the abortion industry. It portrays itself as a modern day hero suffering through the day to day terroristic threats and acts of violent Christians in its efforts to provide women health care (see "At least women knew what they were getting with a coat hanger!")What it really fears, however, is that these Christians will be allowed to remain in the streets offering mothers a real choice at abortion mills. Yes, the entire industry is crumbling and it knows it. Abortions are at their lowest level since 1976. New doctors are not entering into the abortion industry. There are 675 fewer abortion mills today than there were in 1991. The battle for the lives of children is being won as gentle Christians live out their faith at abortion mills. This is what it wants to stop at all costs. When one loses an argument morally, scientifically, and theologically he can resort to one other ruse to win – Thus we have the abortion industry’s latest campaign: "Choice on earth". The abortion industry is doing all that it can, with the dog licking support of the media, to remove the focus from itself and the horrific terrorism it perpetrates upon innocent children in the womb, and place it upon Christians. The abortion industry is deflecting the blame from the true terror of its murderous ways by vilifying those who would dare to expose the truth of what it does to children and their families.
On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court decreed that every child conceived in America could be legally butchered for any reason whatsoever, at any time until the moment of birth. With that ruling, the American holocaust began, and we were soon to learn that it was going to make Hitler and his Nazi storm troopers look like a Girl Scout troop.
One of my favorite sayings is: "If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you got." Unfortunately, that could be the motto for the pro-life movement. We keep doing the same things year in and year out while thinking that one day we'll get different results. We've been at this for about thirty years now, but we don't have thirty years worth of experience. What we've got is one year's experience thirty times. The primary reason this situation exists is because some pro-life organizations are being run by people who worry about what they will do for a living if abortion ends tomorrow. They are what I call crusaders who have fallen in love with crusade.
As for the church, the reason why the vast majority of churches are not involved in the fight against abortion is actually quite simple. It takes courage and character they simply don't have. Trading moral authority for comfort, convenience, and popularity has become a tradition of the modern clergy. When Africans were being captured, bought, sold, and brutalized, church leaders conveniently decided that slavery was none of their business and looked the other way. And when the Nazis began to slaughter millions of innocent human beings, also claiming that their victims were not fully human, the church again decided it was none of their business and looked the other way. So now that another group of "not fully humans" are being legally butchered by the millions, we should not be surprised that spineless priests and spineless pastors are choosing to look the other way.
Some pro-lifers say that if we will just educate the clergy about abortion, they will get on board. That is nonsense. These guys may not know all the repugnant details about abortion, but every pastor and priest in America knows that it is the deliberate killing of an innocent and defenseless baby. They also know that they have an obligation to fight against it. So don't be misled.
The missing ingredient here is not education, but courage. The silent and dormant church is the abortion industry' single greatest ally. The abortion holocaust would end overnight if just a fraction of this nation's 600,000 churches became active in the battle. Instead, we have church leaders who look us right in the face and say, "I know that abortion is murder, but I've got people sitting in my pews who feel differently, and I'm not going to offend them."Of course, if someone was killing off tithers instead of unborn children, you can be certain that these old boys would be speaking out loud and clear, and they wouldn't care who felt differently or who might be offended.
We've also got people sitting in the pews who say that their silence and inaction only means they are not taking a position one way or the other. That is a lie. There is no such thing as not taking a position on abortion. When a man sees helpless children being slaughtered and does nothing to stop it, he is taking a stand. His failure to intervene is tacit approval for the killings to proceed.
Then you've got Christians who say that abortion is simply not any of the church's business. That too is a lie. If the killing of God's most precious creation is none of the church's business. Then we may as well turn every church in America into a bowling alley. The greatest thing would be for the church to fight abortion exactly like it would fight the government if they tried to take away the church's tax-exempt status. Compared to that, World War II would look like a third grade food fight. The fact is, the pro-life effort is going to succeed whether they are on board or not, and every ounce of energy we squander trying to get them to do the right thing is an ounce we don't have for the battle against abortion.
Yes, the battle for the lives of unborn children is being won as gentle Christians live out their faith in the streets of their cities. One by one, abortion mills are closing. One by one abortion industry employees are giving their hearts to Christ. One by one, mothers are choosing life for their children. Jesus is bigger than the abortion industry and He is the One it should fear!

141 babies killed. 5 babies saved. 836 babies saved since January 2000!
Tuesday- a handful of saints stood and interceded for the thirty-three babies that were being killed during midnight abortions. One precious baby’s life was saved! PTL!
Wednesday- twenty-one babies killed, one baby saved.
Thursday- Closed, due to electrical problems. PTL!
Friday- Frigid temperatures. Saints stood begging for the lives of 34 little boys and girls. Their cries went unheeded.
Saturday- Snow flurries pelted the battle fatigued frontline warriors as they stood in God’s name with song and praise crying out for the innocent blood that was being shed today. It was out-of-state day today, as women came across state lines to kill their children. PTL! 3 mothers changed their minds due to the presence of the proclaimers standing in the gap, begging for the lives of their children, and showing them the truth.
"WE GOT HIM!" … or do we? Paul Bremer (head of military operations in Iraq) beamed with pride at the announcement that the evil tyrannical ruler Saddam Hussein was captured. But he only murdered 1 million. Hitler murdered 6 million. The American Church is responsible for 45 million little girls and boys that have been murdered in the past 30 years in our nation. Who is the true enemy?
Every 22 seconds a child dies in America in the Abortion Holocaust. That's about 4,500 a day – 1.5 million a year. It's been going on since 1973, and with each year that passes we become more tolerant of the murder. Just as in the years of the Nazi Holocaust, murder has become acceptable. We have accepted the devil's invitation to sacrifice our sons and our daughters on this altar of convenience and selfishness. Most pulpits have been silent except for an occasional message on how Christians should not break the law by blocking the doors of abortion clinics. We strain out a gnat and swallow a camel. Like the Pharisees in the days of Jesus, we look for reasons to turn our ears from the truth and condemn the ones who are willing to lay down their lives for righteousness' sake.
What Is Our Responsibility In A Nation That Has Turned Away From God?
What is holding God's judgment from our country? How long can this slaughter continue? In the account of Sodom and Gomorrah, God was willing to spare the city if only ten righteous could be found. God tells us that His mercies are new every morning. Lamentations 3:22-23. Let me first say that the Bible speaks of the righteous and the unrighteous, the godly and the ungodly, the just and the unjust. Our nation is made up of all of these peoples. Psalm 9:17 warns us that the wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. Judges 21:25 tells us in those days there was no king in Israel; every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
Proverbs 24:11-12 tells us, rescue those that are unjustly sentenced to death, don't stand back and let them die. Don't try to disclaim responsibility by saying you didn't know about it, for God, who knows all hearts, knows yours , and He knows that you knew, and He will reward everyone according to his deeds. Proverbs 21:13 warns us that, whosoever stops his ears at the cry of the poor, he shall also cry himself, but shall not be heard. God says that if we don't speak up to the injustice done to others, when our turn comes, He won't hear us. Matthew 18:10 Jesus said, "Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in heaven their angels do always behold the face of My Father, which is in heaven." Proverbs 15:3 tells us, the eyes of the Lord are in every place beholding the evil and the good. Psalms 94: 20-23 could easily describe the United States Supreme Court which… devised evil by law and gathered themselves together against the righteous and condemned innocent blood. Jesus said in Matthew 25:40 "In so much as ye have done it unto the least of these My brethren, you have done it unto Me."
In Ezekiel 9 God was going to pass judgment on Jerusalem because of the abominations that had been done in that city so He ordered an angel to go through the city marking only the foreheads of the people who had sighed and cried over the abominations done there. The others with the angel were told to go through the city and kill everyone who did not have the mark. God told them to begin at His sanctuary. The church? Have you sighed and cried over the abominations that are now rampant in America? We have abortion, homosexuality, pornography, and the list is long. We need to pray and work for godly leaders to be placed in authority over us.
God is not waiting for the Republican Party, the President, or the Congress to deal with this horror. Yeats probably said it best when writing about the times like we are facing in America today: "The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity." This battle will never be won from the top down. President Bush made that very clear in the above statement, "I don't think the culture has changed to the extent that the American people or the Congress would totally ban abortion." This battle, however, will be won! It is being won from the bottom up. Christians are storming the gates of hell. If abortion is inspired by the legions of hell, it is only Christians that can bring it down, not a coalition of conservatives and Republicans.
As a matter of fact, this is happening in cities all across our nation. Christians are taking the battle to the streets of their own cities and abortion mills are closing. In Austin, Texas, Planned Parenthood is planning to build a huge multi-million dollar killing facility. The only problem is that none of the contractors in that city are going to allow themselves to be hired by Planned Parenthood. That's right! The contractors themselves are saying, "No!" with a weapon far more powerful than their vote. They are saying it with their life, their fortunes and their sacred honor. Sound familiar? They are saying that life is precious, and that no amount of money is worth the life of a single child.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia, just announced that mechanical abortions are down 22% since 1993. The battle is being won in the streets by simple little Christians, who are living out their faith in a very big God (JESUS). After we win the battles in the streets, we are turning our sights toward Washington, D.C. We won't be looking for a place at the table. We will arrive there to kick the table over and proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord!
It is time for those of us who are following hard after Christ to be filled with a passionate intensity to proclaim the Lordship of Jesus wherever we go. He alone is God, and apart from Him there is no other. When people see us they need to either "pucker up" or "put ‘em up." It is either Christ or chaos, revival or riot! There is no middle ground – no compromise. God will honor this!
The Church of Jesus Christ is at a crossroads in America. She will either take up the cross of her Lord and storm the gates of hell victoriously or retreat in disgrace and allow our culture to go to hell in a hand basket. ~F. Benham

165 babies butchered. 1 mother butchered. 2 babies saved. 831 babies saved since January 2000!
The week started off on a joyous note, as lil Austin Jeffery entered our world weighing in at 6 lbs. 2 oz. 18 inches long. The birth mom was the real hero, as she placed lil A.J. into the loving arms of a Christian couple who had been trying for twelve years to have a child. Tears of joy filled the room as I got to hold the baby and hum the song,… "We've been waiting so long.." PTL!
There is a thin line between good and evil,... life and death.. The choices we make today, will live with us forever, they never go away.
As the celebration of life was going on within the hospital, a young woman was fighting for her life after undergoing a second-trimester abortion across the street at the Hope (less) abortion mill. "MURDER FOR HIRE" should replace the facade over the Hope Clinic for women. Not only do these two remaining abortionists, Yogendra Shah and former felon Alan Palmer butcher babies, but they also butcher women. And they get away with it. Where is the outrage from all these women's groups? N.O.W. etc. And where is the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation, or the Health Department. How can so many complaints and lawsuits against this abortion mill and these two abortionists go un-noticed? The high-awards in botched abortion malpractice lawsuits… could they possibly have anything to do with the mad exodus of good doctors leaving Southern Illinois because the good doctors can't afford the sky-rocketing cost of malpractice insurance due to the gross negligence of dirty doctors?
We, as American Christians, have become so comfortable in our lovely buildings and padded pews. We have all the luxuries that we can imagine even within the church walls. We have beautiful fellowship halls for our many banquets; we have the latest sound equipment so that we can praise and worship; we all have our computers and laser printers to keep up with our finances and our mailing lists; and, of course, we must keep up the radio and TV ministry. We gather together week after week and shut ourselves inside the walls of our lovely buildings as we raise our voices as loud as we can, all in the name of praise. Outside, the screams of death fail to penetrate the walls we have built. If someone should happen to bring the cry of injustice to our attention, we just sing a little louder. Isaiah 1:15-17 What a dreadful thought! As we lift our hands in the sanctuary, as we utter prophetic words and sing a little louder, God sees hands dripping with blood! We are a generation of Christians who have become very concerned about our image. Corrie Ten Boom was considered a law-breaker by her pastor and friends, but today we remember her as one of the greatest heroes of the faith. Those that risked their lives to rescue the black slaves in the Underground Railroad are written up in our history books affectionately, but it was quite a different scenario when the rescuing was going on. They were considered extremists! Paul, a man who was so beautifully transformed by the Lord, gave his all to bring the truth of the gospel to the world. He wrote two-thirds of the New Testament, (from jail) yet his words to Timothy shortly before he was beheaded for his faith, break one’s heart. 2 Timothy 4:9-18 There are those who have wept bitter tears over the death of our tiny, defenseless pre-born and have cried out to the community and the church to please help in the rescue, but they are many times forsaken and rejected by the very people who are supposed to be their friends. Yet I can assure you of this, God has not, and will not, for sake such as these. Like Paul they can say, "The Lord will rescue me."

136 babies killed. 5 babies saved. 829 babies saved since January 2000!
Tuesday- as midnight abortions took place, thirty-eight babies died a painful death. Though their mothers may not have felt a thing, these babies felt the dismemberment of their tiny limbs, they felt scissors into the back of their heads… They went through a death no one should go through.
Wednesday- Mr. Shah and ex-convict Al Palmer, tag team killers, were inside the deathcamp butchering thirty-six babies, one day before Thanksgiving as Granitonians ignored the pleas of these babies and sang a little louder. A handful of proclaimers stood in the gap for these babies.
Thursday- We gave thanks to Jesus Christ for His grace, mercy, love, salvation, and the many other blessings He has given all of us. "Happy Thanksgiving !"
Friday- In frigid temps with snow flurries hitting saints’ faces, 7 saints stood in frigid weather proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and offering these mothers a real choice, one that won’t scar or possibly kill them. Two moms took up that offer and left with their babies alive.
Saints took the proclaiming line to St. Clair Mall during the busiest shopping day of the year. "Shock and awe goes to the Mall on Black Friday."
Saturday- thirty-five children were being slaughtered, many were from out of state. One young mother seeking an abortion even had the audacity to yell at her mother, "Let’s hurry up mom so we can get this over with and go shopping…" We are a grassroots Gospel believing ministry, we don’t have temperature controlled plush offices, we don’t collect a salary, we are out in the cold of winter, in the heat of summer without a roof over our head, without carpet under our feet to keep the spring monsoon rains out of our shoes. We are a frontlines ministry, literally the last line of defense for these innocent boys and girls, standing for the truth and shining the light. We are the whistle-blowers just like in the book of Acts, where the religious leaders attacked the true men of God.
When the Holy Spirit came upon the Apostles, they brought the message into the streets. They were bold with the message of Jesus! They know He had been crucified and they could very well have the same thing happen to them, but they didn't care. They preached and three thousand came to Christ that first Christian Pentecost. And they continued to take this message into the streets and more and more people began to accept the truth and turn to Jesus! Throughout the Book of Acts we see the religious leaders attacking the true men of God. From the stoning of Stephen to the trials of Paul, the truth was always persecuted to those that God had called to preach the truth. Today, we stand on the streets of America proclaiming the truth about child killing. We demand, from the religious leaders and Christians, more than just lip service. We demand action to stop this killing of God's "little ones" – but they would rather condemn the messenger than condemn the killer. The only way to stop abortions the day the children are to die, is to be at the place they will be murdered. Political action, pregnancy centers, pro-life billboards, homes for unwed mothers, and education efforts will not stop a woman from going into the abortion mill when she is there to kill her child. That is the truth. But, it is also a proven fact that when a group of pro-lifers is standing there praying or holding signs many of the pregnant moms will not go in. That also is the truth. Most of the women seeking an abortion look in the Yellow Pages under "abortion providers" not "abortion alternatives." That is why we MUST be at the killing centers.
The answer to every problem in America today is Jesus! That is the message the churches must take to the streets. When Jesus is uplifted, abortion will end; the need for drugs and other habit-forming chemicals will cease; and pornography will be a thing of the past. When the truth of Jesus controls the lives of people, the rate of divorce will drop, and child and spouse abuse will end.
The church militant must rise from their pews and take to the streets as the early churches did. If we truly love Jesus and His truth, then we will bring His message to those that need it the most and not sit comfortably in our churches waiting for the lost to come in. Jesus, as the "Good Shepherd" left the ninety-nine and went out to look for the one that was lost. The message to the Church is the same as Paul's WAKE UP from your slumber! To advance the Kingdom of God on earth. We must preserve the Gospel of Jesus Christ and guard it with our lives. Frankie Schaffer wrote in his book " A Time for Anger" there are times in which anyone with a shred of moral principle should be profoundly angry. We live in such times. This defiling of Christianity must not go without opposition! We, as the church must become militant in our faith and be willing to take up our cross and march into the battle with a righteous indignation. The Gospel is under attack by an enemy who would like nothing better than to destroy any trace of it. The rebellion started when Satan and his angels were cast out of heaven and onto earth. This rebellion is still among us today. The Apostles fought against it, the early church Fathers fought against it, the Reformers fought against it, and America's founding Fathers fought against it. It is our turn to fight. We must follow in the steps of those who have gone before us, take up our swords and speak into the hearts of the deceived.
Beginning this 31 st year of Roe v. Wade we are refusing to go where babies are not being saved, that is Washington D.C. every January 22 nd , but we are going to the gates where babies can be saved. We are tired of begging for crumbs every January 22 nd and messing with compromising politicians… if today they can vote life to babies, tomorrow they can vote them death; begging politicians is basically a pro-choice activity even if you beg for life; you're giving them life/death power, making them think they can exercise God's prerogative over life and death, the very sin that the Supreme Court fell into in the first place. And yet you know that even if Congress unanimously outlaws abortion, a judge or judges somewhere will cancel it out. Is there something better? Yes, there is… come stand outside these gates of hell with us, where hearts are being changed and lives are being saved, one at a time. "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:21

173 babies killed. 10 babies saved. 824 babies saved since January 2000!
Monday- 0 killed. Bag n’ tag, 6 employees
Tuesday- 35 IN, KY, IA, TX, MO, IL Innocent blood spilled onto the abortuary parking lot as mass-killing was going on behind these cinder blocks.
Wednesday- 24 killed, 4 saves, including a set of twins .IN, MO, IL, National Director of the Constitution Party, Cal Zastrow came all the way from Michigan to stand for those being led to slaughter, Ps. 24:11-12, and to bring praise to the Lord in order to defeat the enemy at these gates. GLORY! Adams County Right to Life was interceding for these babies outside this mill
Thursday- Under the cloak of darkness , thirty-nine mothers, some with obviously swollen bellies, stood in line to sign the death warrants out on their preborn babies and many were there to start the 2-day grisly procedure, as nine proclaimers were pleading for their lives. Sadly, thirty-nine parents didn’t heed that call. But one couple did listen, and after being inside the clinic for about twenty minutes they came out and the boyfriend gave the saints a big thumbs up and said, "we couldn’t do it!"
Friday- As watchmen stood on the wall crying out for the thirty-two little boys and girls scheduled to be murdered the body parts factory man Steve, recklessly drove into death alley and parked alongside this abortuary where he normally only comes on Monday’s, to pickup that past week’s carnage .He brushed up against the proclaimers threatening to have them arrested for standing in the alley. "Call the authorities if you feel you need to." He calmed down after the saints produced a video camera to show his aggressive and threatening behavior. He was pro-life, Catholic and supports a woman’s choice. He added "We’re learning a lot about diseases from these babies." He was upset with President George Bush sending 87 million dollars to help rebuild Iraq. Steve would much rather see that $ go for the morning after shot for pregnant women. Why are you here Steve?" The abortion clinic ran out of body parts specimen containers. Really.. Why don’t you put them in a bucket like you usually do?" Mark 4:12 Pray for Steve, so that he might see the horror of abortion and realize that it’s wrong. One baby left this Hope(less) mill still ALIVE!
Saturday- At 6:00 a.m.,Yogendra Shah began the assembly line killings with ex-convict Allan Palmer finishing up with his arrival around 11:00 a.m. Forty-three children were led to their deaths as proclaimers and a youth group from Twin Rivers Church brought praise and worship outside these gates. Marti blessed the mothers with beautiful red and yellow roses with a heartfelt message and scripture attached to each rose. Four mothers came back out at different times, and told the sidewalk counselors "they didn’t kill their babies, or couldn’t go through with the abortion". Including Tosha, who told Daniel she couldn’t kill her baby and what changed her mind was the pictures on the truth truck. "Is that what they do?".. "Yes, that’s what your baby would look like"... "that’s awful!" She accepted a rose and Angela’s phone number, and promised to contact her. Teenagers and adults standing in the gap were encouraged by the surprise visit of a young mother who had just given birth two-days earlier and was a Small Victories save two months ago from this Hope (less)mill. Baby "Michael" weighed in at 6lbs. 2oz., 18 in. They were encouraged to see the fruits of their labors. She thanked them for being there. A young post-abortive mother came out after killing her baby and told saints, "it wasn’t a baby, yet"… "Oh yeah?.. then you’re NOT pregnant!"
As we celebrate Thanksgiving, let us remember that the Pilgrims viewed their lives as "stepping stones" upon which future generations might trod as they followed hard after Christ. Thanksgiving, more than any other American holiday, points us directly to Christ and His providential hand in our national history. It points to the fact that this was a nation founded by Christians. It points to the fact that our governmental system was built upon biblical principles. It points to the fact that the inalienable rights of men such as life liberty, and the pursuit of happiness were given by God and not by governments. It points to the fact that individual liberty to know God and worship Him freely must be the bedrock of good government. No other form of government has allowed common men individual liberty to pursue and complete the work God gave them to do. Thanksgiving points to the fact that there is another King, one called Jesus! "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." II Corinthians 3:17 This is why the devil hates Thanksgiving!
This is why he is busying himself revising American history in school textbooks. He is terrified that we might remember the manifold works of Christ in the establishment of America. The devil has pulled out all stops to steal Thanksgiving from the American memory in the same way he killed those who translated the Bible into English. He must remove those witnesses and the evidences of God's hand at work in our history lest we remember who we are and why we were brought to this continent.
The devil knows very well what will happen to him when we remember who we are and why we are here. He knows that, when our hearts are set aflame by the purposes of God, we will crush his hoary head with the Gospel of peace (Romans 16:20). He may bruise our heal but we will crush his head. Thanksgiving, that great day of remembrance, points to God and His manifold workings on man's behalf. It reminds us that we are beholden to Him and to no other. It reminds us that He is the sovereign of the cosmos and that apart from Him we can do nothing.
I contend that we will never know the blessings of God in the American Church until we tackle this issue of abortion in the Church. In fact, God reasons with us in Isaiah 1:18-20 about our blood guilt today as he did in Israel long ago: "Come let us reason together…If you are willing and obedient you will eat the best from the land, but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword." You may say, "I will not, as a believer (or pastor), get involved in such a sensitive matter between husbands and wives in my congregation." Then you have reasoned with the Almighty toward judgment "for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it" (Isaiah 1:20) about people of bloody hands. Instead, let us reason with God toward forgiveness of this scarlet blemish on our robes. Let us apply ourselves to His righteous course on this issue that defines us in God's eyes as members of "holy churches" or "evil assemblies" Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of My sight! Stop doing wrong, learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.
Christian, could it be that our churches today are in the same place as Israel found herself in the days of Isaiah—right in form, creed, worship, ordinances, and prayer yet far removed from God and His blessing because we have blood on our hands? Could it be that while we strive to build His Church, that instead, because we have defied God on a defining divine issue, our centers of worship have become indeed "evil assemblies?"
"But we're pro-life," you say. "We preach the sanctity of human life. We have instituted a pro-life strategy of action in our church! What then is this defining divine issue of blood guilt?" The prophetic answer: "There is abortion – the murder of many children – going on right in your own church – even as you listen to this. When you pastors mount your pulpit this Sunday and lift your hands to God in prayer along with the congregation, the fact may be that there is blood on your hands before God."
This Sunday, as you look at your brethren, see the people as God sees them. See the hidden faces of those "being knitted together in their mother's wombs" whose "frames are not hidden from God in the secret place." Psalm 139: 13-16 Let us not conform to the pattern of this age where the term "birth control" often masks the murder of innocent people. If we give an inch on the sanctity of human life, from fertilization to natural death, the foundations of God's blessing upon us will crumble.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
157 babies killed. 6 babies saved. 814 babies saved since January 2000!
Monday- Bag’n Tag with four butcherettes inside this deathcamp piecing and bagging this past week’s grisly carnage.
Tuesday- As we paid homage to those patriots who laid their lives down for their fellow brothers and sisters, future lil veterans were being executed. Forty-six future veterans were killed during midnight abortions.
Wednesday- twenty-five babies were murdered. Saints stood in the gap and were able to change one woman’s mind, who then left the clinic with her unborn child- alive! PTL! Injustice was once again being served in a Granite City, Il. courtroom. Judge Eller Duff pronounced sentencing on a Christian prophet, Brother John for placing his Bible and a graphic pamphlet on the sidewalk of the abortion mill. The judge would not listen to any of the witnesses while she was hearing two cases of either side of her bench, she pronounced sentencing on brother John, guilty of his acknowledgement of God, and fined.
Thursday- as dirty pro-lifers stood in the gap for the twenty-two innocent babies being put to death without judge, jury, or trial, Alabama’s Court of the Judiciary removed Roy Moore from his position as chief justice today for defiance of a federal judge’s order to remove his Ten Commandments monument from the rotunda of the state courthouse. "It’s about whether or not we can acknowledge God as the source of our law and our liberty. That’s all I’ve done…I’ve been found guilty." Moore said.
Friday- twenty-one babies died as PT Cruisers, Cadillacs, and 4 wheel drive trucks pulled up to get rid of their inconvenience. It wasn’t the fact they couldn’t afford a child, it was that they didn’t want a child. Parents came from Indiana, Missouri, and Illinois.
Saturday- the cold weather didn’t stop proclaimers from coming out to intercede for the unborn scheduled to die. Forty-six moms came from Indiana, Kentucky, Iowa, and Missouri. By God’s grace three children were spared from death; forty-three were murdered.
Our churches are turning into commerce ministries where salaries are seeing the biggest pay-outs yet the Great Commission is not being fulfilled. While innocent blood is defiling the land, and wherever an altar of baal is, where innocent blood is being sacrificed, that land cannot be redeemed. Evil will rule and be served up. In other words, if you don't redeem innocent blood, nothing will be redeemed where there is innocent blood and everyone will have that blood on their hands. "See how the faithful city has become a harlot! She once was full of justice; righteousness used to dwell in her- but now murderers!" Isaiah 1:21 Nothing will prosper in these cities. Vice will rule the land. It is exactly what you see in Granite City. Evil, wickedness, and corruption roam the streets while innocent blood is flushed through the sewers.
Across our nation the blood of innocent babies is spilled each day, polluting our land from sea to shining sea. Numbers 35:33 "Bloodshed pollutes the land, and atonement cannot be made…."
The most damaging agent to the earth’s environment is innocent blood. It is the shedding of innocent blood that pollutes a nation. "They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was polluted by their blood. Psalm 106:38
These inhuman acts of murder happen everyday behind the closed doors of abortion clinics with pleasant names like Planned Parenthood, Women’s Medical Clinic, Pregnancy Control Clinic, and Hope Clinic for Women. The blood of babies who die there runs red just like yours and mine. We cannot see them neither can we hear their cries but these children exist nevertheless. However, God sees the blood. God hears their cries of pain and anguish as they are torn apart or their heads are crushed. He hears the voice of their innocent blood as it speaks from the ground for vengeance. "The Lord said, "What have you done? Listen, your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground." Genesis 4:10

138 babies killed. 7 babies saved. 808 babies saved since January 2000!
Monday-0 killed- At least four employees were inside bagging and tagging the babies killed from the previous week’s grisly deeds.
Tuesday- 28 killed- Saints were able to talk with the mothers upon entering the baby-killing mill. Two mothers came back out and told them at different times "they weren’t going to kill their babies" and accepted the bibles and resource information. Two other mothers, at different times, wouldn’t talk to the proclaimers, but they did not go into the mill, instead they sat in their vehicles talking back and forth with the person who drove them there, until both cars drove off. PTL!
Wenesday-21 killed- Watchmen on the wall stood in the gap for those without a voice, as twenty-one mothers marched their lil boys & lil girls into the deathcamp. One mother pulled onto the lot and her car became disabled. The driver got out to check it out while saints were praying and talking with this young girl. She didn’t go through with the abortion and left the mill, after they got their car restarted!
Thursday- 25 killed- Midnight abortions began with the usual sight of out-of-state cars pulling onto the abortuary’s lot. Twenty-five mothers including those from Kentucky and Indiana signed the death-warrants out on their children. The cold winds ripped through the saints who were crying out and pleading the cases of the fatherless. Angela warned them of the lawsuits and the risks and complications of abortion before they entered the purple doors. One young college couple came right back out, into Angela’s arms with Marti by her side, encouraging them for making the right choice. They drove all the way up from Poplar Bluff, Missouri. They stated "Our parents would skin us alive, if they knew we were here". Saints prayed and explained all their options and all the resources available to them. They were very jovial with the proclaimers and thanked them for being there. PTL!
Friday- 30 killed- Saints stood for the least of these as Daniel & Angela were attending the funeral of a family member. Over thirty mothers chose the most destructive and selfish act that one big human being could do to one little human being. It ended with a brown bag and a long ride home. Abortion: Big people killing little people. One mother came back out and told the proclaimers she wasn’t going to kill her baby!
Saturday- 34 killed- Bitter cold embraced the frontline soldiers as approximately thirty-four mothers stood in line to kill their children. One pastor drove three hours to stand in the gap. "It’s all about ME’! was the mantra of the day outside this abortion mill. Various excuses were being yelled at the proclaimers from the soon to be abortive mothers; "Do you want to get up with a kid at three A.M.? I, don’t!"… Psalms 41:1 Yes! We’ll take your baby. Give me your poor, give me your weak…Such is the life… of a Christian leper…where the Levite and the Priest cross to the other side of the road to avoid any confrontation… you see my friend, to be a rebel today one must live godly and when confronted with the TRUTH, the American Church remains stiff-necked and looks the other way, because the truth is, when injustice is made visible, the Church of St. Apathy would have to admit this is wrong, and members would get uncomfortable, and the church would have to get off it’s backside, ...and DO SOMETHING! If the Church of Jesus Christ doesn’t wake up and confront the enemy, that enemy will come to the Church of Jesus Christ. Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Psalm 94:16 We the Christian Leper do battle with the spirit of murder… EVERYDAY! Let God break your heart: His heart has been broken for a long time.
See you at the gates Be of good courage ~Angela
163 babies killed. 9 babies saved. 794 babies saved since January 2000!
Wednesday- This day started out on a discouraging note, as the faithful watchman on the wall looked on in dismay as "Emily", a 22 year old prostitute returned from the previous killing day to finish the grisly ($1,575) D&X (partial birth) procedure on her 23 week old child. As their vehicle pulled onto the extermination camp’s lot, Emily was vomiting –up in the back seat… her two accomplices got out of the car, and told the saints "She’s really sick, she’s been up all night, running a fever and throwing up. Then as they picked Emily out of the back seat and attempted to carry her in the killing center, Emily told the proclaimers, "I felt my babies heart explode, inside me!"…then they carried her into the belly of the beast. Afterwards, these two girls, one a professing lesbian, admitted they felt bad and regretted bringing Emily here, but the "clinic, told them Emily didn’t have any alternatives, she’s a crack-addict, if she has the fetus, she’ll go to jail"… but, when the Hope(less) staff wouldn’t give them an update on her condition they came out to the proclaimers and voiced their regrets and concern. They were remorseful for bringing Emily here to kill her baby. They all had to suffer with her. Saints prayed with them and gave them the Bible and resource numbers to follow-up with. They thank them for being there. S.V. save "Brandi", stopped by the mill with her three week old daughter, to pick-up the crib and supplies for her baby. That evening, Marshonda a S.V. save gave birth at 5:31 p.m. to a healthy, 7lbs. 2oz. baby boy, "Jabez". This day started out with "death", but ended with "life". PTL!
Thursday- One save was from Arkansas. As they walked in proclaimers told her, "don’t go in there, abortion is forever. Don’t go in there, that could be a future razorback." "Don’t make it any harder for us than it is already…" Minutes later they came back out and said they couldn’t do it.
Angela talked with two girls from Missouri before they went in. The driver said her friend has to go through this. A few minutes later both came out and Angela gave the pregnant girl a hug and said, "you didn’t kill the baby?" She said no, and Angela gave her a bible with resource numbers, she thanked us for being there and they left.
Charity and her four daughters were passing by the mill and stopped to tell us that they knew of a baby weighing 8oz, survived being born at twenty-five weeks. "How could anybody kill their baby?" Then Angel and Alexis, 6 and 7 yrs. old picked up the baby Malachi sign and chanted, "this is wrong, this is wrong," as Charity told Angela about a friend who came to Hopeless for an abortion, and Illinois taxpayers got to pay for her abortion.
Friday- three saves, a mom and daughter came out from the abortion mill and told Daniel "they didn’t go through it, they didn’t kill the baby." They took information from Daniel and left the abortion mill with the baby still alive.
Angela left the mill and met with Jennifer, a save from hopeless and got to show her a picture of her fifteen week old baby boy, who has been tentatively named CJ, to be confirmed by Doctor Mark.
Saturday- "Day of the Living Dead" was being played out. Thirty-one little baby boys and girls were slaughtered and their innocent blood is paying for the Church’s SILENCE. Four saves. One save was Rebecca who went to this Hopeless abortion mill looking for answers, "All I wanted was a pregnancy test. They didn’t even know if I was pregnant. However they did kept bringing up that I needed money to get an abortion. They said that I had a blighted ovum and that I needed an abortion and they kept trying to get me to talk to the abortion doctor." Rebecca got disenchanted with two of the workers at hopeless as they were whispering back and forth to one another and were asking Rebecca, "Could you come up with some money?" Rebecca grabbed her urine, threw it out, went down the spiral staircase and went into the arms of the proclaimers who told her that Angela would help her. Angela gave her an ultrasound and her supposedly "blighted ovum" turned out to be a twenty-week-old baby boy. PTL! She and her family got to hear the baby’s heartbeats and see him sucking his thumb.
A very sad scene. A young mother was being forced into the abortion mill after being beat all night by her husband as Angela pleaded on the phone with the sheriff’s deputies to do something. 4:04 am was the last SOS Unfortunately at 8:20 that morning they showed up at the abortion mill. Saints cried out her name, "don’t do it don’t kill the baby. This young girl is the mother of a reported thirteen babies: two living, ten aborted, one miscarriage. This was her reported thirteenth pregnancy that we’ve been helping her with for the past two months. And YOU the Illinois taxpayers have so generously let this young girl reach into your pockets to pay for her irresponsible sexual habits. And this mother is only nineteen years of age. That means that we have two more years of this sort of behavior to be paid for by YOU the tax payers until something more permanently with her reproductive "choice" can be done.
Gina and her boyfriend Kit pulled into the alley attempting to go into the abortion mill parking lot when all of the sudden her axle, tire and engine fell onto the ground and disabled her vehicle. She got out of her car. Angela went over and asked her, "Are you going to get an abortion?" She said, "Yes, look at my %$%^^ car." Angela said, "maybe God’s getting your attention." The deathscort rolled his eyes. She went inside but she came out a few minutes later worried about the expense of her car and decided not to go through with the abortion and accepted help from Small Victories. We worked out a plan with the towing company to get this girl back home. What a witness!
Another mom, dad, and daughter came out of the abortion mill and accepted a Bible from Susan and told her that they didn’t go through with the abortion. "We saved the baby, thank you for being here!"
The killing of the preborn began in 1973. We have now entered the twenty-first century. We are looking at close to over forty million children that have been brutally murdered through abortion, and yet the average church has no plan of action whatsoever to intervene. If there are pro-life activists in the church, they are many times kept at a distance—sort of like distancing oneself from a leper. Rarely will such people be invited to speak from the pulpit as they are considered a bit "imbalanced" by many pastors and brethren. These activists are "odd" and they seem to bring a "spirit of heaviness" into the fellowship. As we seek God for the prophetic ministry to return to the church, many true prophetic voices are scorned as they cry out against the great injustice that is taking place in every city of this nation. As we seek God for personal words to tickle our ears, the cry of the Father and the tears of Jesus go unheeded. Listen to the prophetic words from the prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 1:15-17. What a dreadful thought! As we lift our hands in the sanctuary, as we utter prophetic words and sing a little louder, God sees hands dripping with blood!
We are a generation of Christians who have become very concerned about our image. We want to be King’s kids, yet we forget what happened to the King’s kids who truly followed in obedience. They were terribly persecuted, especially by the religious crowd. Corrie Ten Boom was considered a lawbreaker by her pastor and friends, but today we remember her as one of the greatest heroes of the faith. Those that risked their lives to rescue the black slaves in the underground railroad are written up in our history books affectionately, but it was quite a different scenario when the rescuing was going on. They were considered extremists! Paul, a man who was so beautifully transformed by the Lord, gave his all to bring the truth of the gospel to the world. He wrote two-thirds of the New Testament, (from jail) yet his words to Timothy shortly before he was beheaded for his faith, break one’s heart. 2 Timothy 4:9-18
There are those who have wept bitter tears over the death of our tiny, defenseless pre-born and have cried out to the community and the church to please help in the rescue, but they are many times forsaken and rejected by the very people who are supposed to be their friends. Yet I can assure you of this, God has not, and will not, forsake such as these. Like Paul, they can say, "The Lord will rescue me."
Remember, courage is not the lack of fear, but the willingness to go out and take a stand in spite of your fear.

160 babies killed. 5 babies saved. 785 babies saved since January 2000!
Highlights and lowlights this past weeks carnage:
Monday- Proclaimers stood in unisom with leaders from L.E.A.R.N., Blacks for Life, and "Say So March", at Keiner Plaza, St. Louis, Mo. for a pro-life rally. Approx. 150 proclaimers in attendance, with the "truth-trucks" from CBR in Ohio. Pastor Clenard Childress from New Jersey, Akua Furlow (LEARN) researcher and local pastor Rafael Green, Metro Christian Community church spoke on the black genocide ravaging our nation.
Friday- Assistant Director Rusty Thomas of Operation Save America stood with the watchmen on the wall as forty-one mothers committed the selfish act of "choice". Angela spoke with one black couple, who changed their minds and left this mill with their baby still ALIVE! A man passing through Granite City, gave a tearful testimony about how a doctor thought it in their best interest to abort their baby a few years ago suspecting the unborn child would be defective and the mother would die… Praise the Lord this man took it to the Lord and believed in God’s law, and not man’s words. They now have a beautiful, healthy, three- year old child. Praise God you watchman are standing out here "crying out, and warning these women!" "There should be more people out here!" A small group of college protestors were approaching the mill to protest the Catholic group that has their annual pilgrimage every October from Springfield, IL. The only thing wrong with this picture was, they got their days mixed up! The catholic bishop and his entourage wasn’t due till Saturday morning, Angela encouraged them, "You’ll have to come back". But what a witnessing opportunity, for the saints. Rusty Thomas spoke with the young men for some time and they were absorbing it all! Some wore signs that read, "Leave those women alone", one young man who was disguised as being vision- impaired, hung a sign around his neck claiming, "I need stem cells." Another lost individual wore a sign that said, "I love bacon!…" "There’s the fetus truck!" they shouted as Daniel drove by with the truth truck and they pointed to it. The truth has a way of bothering everyone.
Saturday- Rusty Thomas OSA assist director spoke to the saints standing in the gap for the approximate 35 lil’ girls and boys that were being led to their deaths. Praise the Lord! Two mothers decided to heed our advice and decided NOT to terminate their babies’ lives. The catholic bishop and his entourage made their annual pilgrimage outside this stronghold in Granite City, IL. Angela made it a point to bring up the fact that this abortuary is open six days a week, there are three Catholic churches in Granite City and 59 Protestant, not ONE of these churches is standing or praying outside this mill. Once a year pilgrimages don’t close down abortion mills. The bishop’s spokesperson said he would check into it. The three sworn enemies against the believer are- the world, the flesh, and the devil. God is getting our attention once again, this time in Florida:
How barbaric has our nation become when we can kill a full term baby (delivered) with a pair of scissors in the back of the neck, as long as its umbilical cord isn’t severed, and call it "choice…"
And we can slowly kill, by starving and dehydrating, a disabled young woman by withholding food and water, slowly torturing her body, because she’s an "inconvenience…"
If she deserves to be killed, why don’t we pick up a rock and bludgeon her or pull the trigger of a gun – it would be more humane and a lot quicker.
How uncivilized as a nation have we become? I truly believe, God’s final judgement is being with-held because he is showing us mercy – because of the faithful remnant that is standing on His Word and the truth. Thomas Jefferson said, "The price of liberty, is eternal vigilance…" We are living on the fumes of that legacy, today…the capital of liberty is being diminished! The Lord is a man of war! He is confrontational! To be a rebel today, you have to live godly. We must stand for righteousness, even when harm will come to you. We must entrust ourselves to God and continue to do good!
If you want to give of your substance for the Lord’s work, support the work of these pro-life warriors with a check. Better yet, how about a monthly check? A few dollars can save a life! Every 22 seconds a child dies in America in the Abortion Holocaust. That’s about 4,500 a day – 1.5 million a year. It’s been going on since 1973, and with each year that passes we become more tolerant of the murder. Just as in the years of the Nazi Holocaust, murder has become acceptable. We have accepted the devil’s invitation to sacrifice our sons and our daughters on this altar of convenience and selfishness. Our American churches are full of Crossless, Powerless Christianity. Most pulpits have been silent except for an occasional message on how Christians should not break the law by blocking the doors of abortion clinics. We strain out a gnat and swallow a camel. Like the Pharisees in the days of Jesus, we look for reasons to turn our ears from truth and condemn the ones who are willing to lay down their lives for righteousness’ sake. If the law of man contradicts that sacred law of God, and it does, fight until the law is changed. Don’t say, "It’s not my ministry!" It is every Christian’s responsibility to stand against evil. We are the salt of the earth. Please don’t sing a little louder to drown out the cries of the oppressed. Stop and listen. Pray for guidance; put on the armor of God and fight! "Go ahead! Risk getting sued for me and for the oppressed. I died for you!" We must have a "William Wallace" moment as portrayed in the "Braveheart" movie with Mel Gibson... as he lay there in front of the crowds and he would not repent to Longshanks the tyrannical ruler, William Wallace turned his head to catch a glimpse of a blond haired toddler looking at him, and he remember why he was willing to lay his life down… and he prayed, "give me the grace to die well"…. So that you may have (and he yelled out loud),…FREEDOM!!" We have all been called, … for such a time as this…
Be of good courage ~ Angela
