Rusty Thomas and the saints in Waco, Texas, are allowing the theology of the Church house to become biography in the streets, and all of Waco is taking notice.  “We will no longer sit idly by while little children are sentenced to die.”  The church has come out of the closet and into the arena, championing the cause of the preborn child’s right to life.  Almost 100 moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas, little boys and little girls, stormed the gates of hell yesterday as the church in Waco, Texas, celebrated their new  “ministry of proximity.”   God has orchestrated it so that these gentle Christians now have a house right next door to Waco’s only abortion mill.  This is God come close to those in crisis pregnancy situations.

Abortion opponents lease house next to Waco’s Planned Parenthood clinic 

By Cindy V. Culp

Abortion opponents held a news conference Thursday morning to announce that they are now leasing a house next door to the Planned Parenthood of Central Texas clinic on Columbus Avenue.

The idea is to create a “ministry of proximity,” said the Rev. Rusty Thomas, one of Waco’s most vocal anti-abortion opponents. In other cities, having a physical presence next to abortion clinics has aided activists’ mission of changing the minds of both women seeking abortions and clinic workers, he said.

 “We want folks to know God is not far off somewhere, unconcerned,” Thomas said.

The money for the lease is primarily being provided by a donor who wants to remain anonymous, said John Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco. But the effort is a joint project of several local groups, including Pro-Life Waco, Thomas’ Elijah Ministries and some local pastors, he said.

Abortion opponents have long gathered in front of the Planned Parenthood clinic on days when abortions are done. Renting the house will help with the logistics of those protests, Thomas said. There is room for numerous vehicles to park on the property, plus activists can go inside to cool off, use the restroom or get a glass of water, he said.
