The saints in Connecticut continue to live out their faith at the gates of hell and the gates are not prevailing.  Here are some wonderful stories of those “plucked from the fire” as a result of those fabulous Christians not loving their own lives so much as to shrink from death.

Stories from Brenda Rutherford:


This is Aurelia. Wendee and I met her three years ago at Planned Parenthood, where her son was scheduled to die through a horrific abortion.  Praise God this mom chose life for her baby!  Along the way our ministry has helped this family a great deal with their needs and shared the saving gospel of Jesus Christ with them all.  I was blessed to be a part of Aurelia’s pregnancy and  the birth of this precious little boy named Alex!  He is now a happy, energetic 2 1/2 year old!  Aurelia and her boyfriend, Alejandro along with their five children recently moved back to CT from a two year stay in PA. They are currently staying in a temporary shelter.  Aurelia is eight months pregnant and suffers from a serious disease and is in and out of the hospital often.  After years of prayers for this family they are have been attending church with me for the past month. God is answering our prayers! The other day the boyfriend,  Alejandro called my pastor (Hector) at the wee hours of the morning to tell him that Jesus had woke him telling  him to get his and Aurelia’s life right and start cleaning house! Please continue to pray for them and their salvation! (Nancy said Brenda told her she was going into the hospital today,so pray for her please).

Back in November at Planned Parenthood, Pam and I spoke to a couple going in for an abortion. This was the couples third attempt.  Each time they came they saw us and were convicted, left and rescheduled for the following week.  On their third visit Pam and I had an opportunity to speak with Nina and her boyfriend Amando. Amando was crying and expressed he did not want her to abort!  We told them we could help. We gave them literature, showed them pictures of their developing baby and prayed for them to let their baby live. They decided to go home!  Pam and I have visited them several times with diapers, wipes , clothes and most important we shared Jesus with them, they were both very open to listening. We left bibles, Mark Cahill books along with the 180 DVD and Eclipse of Reason. Nina and Amando have six other children ranging from 1-15 years old. At Nina’s last recent Dr’s appointment the ultrasound revealed……..TWO heartbeats, that’s right…TWINS! A boy and a girl!!!!

I met Michelle, a 17 year old going into Planned Parenthood this past Saturday for a pregnancy test. Colbi and I spent time talking to her about Jesus , gave her literature. She said she attends church regularly. We offered to take her home and get a pregnancy test, she refused and went in for her appointment. Michelle called later that day to tell me she was pregnant, scared and needed help! She also told her mom she was pregnant, who is a Christian, who told her that “abortion was not an option, that it’s murder!!” Her mom told her she would help her also.  Sadly Michelle called me yesterday to tell me she went to the Dr and was miscarrying the baby. We prayed and talked a lot, she opened up about her life.  I told her she needs to repent of her ways and surrender her life to Christ.  She wants to keep in contact, and come next week to my house for bible study.  Pray for Michelle and her salvation!!
Here are some pictures of us on the streets, on the left is a man that brought his sister here to interpret.

Stories from Carmen Vazquez:

A few weeks ago Marilyn and I spoke at a church in Bridgeport about abortion and what we do to help women in the ministry. We were able to   show the “180” DVD  and the video Hard Truth. The Holy Spirit touched many of the people that night and most of them signed-up to join us on the front lines at Summit Center,intercede for those entering the mill. A few days later I received a phone call from a woman. She was very depressed because she had several abortions. She told me that her daughter-in-law had brought home information we gave out at this church. I began to counsel her over the phone and she was crying and telling me how she was tormented thinking about what she had done years ago and wanted to know if I had any help. She wasn’t saved and didn’t attend church. I was able to share with her the love of Christ and all that He had done for her on the cross. She repented over the phone of all her sins and for murdering her babies. She accepted Christ and made Him Lord over her life! She said she felt chills after she prayed and a burden lifted off her. I encouraged her to attend church with her daughter-in-law and she did. I had her make an appointment with Sylvia from Hopeline were they counsel women with post abortion syndrome along with a bible study. She went to her first counseling session and bible study this pass week and she sounded so much better. She shared with me that she is able to sleep better at night. Women are never the same after an abortion. That is why we need to reach out to these women that are hurting in the church with post abortion syndrome. They are afraid to tell anyone. Let us pray for these women to open up and reach out for help. We care about them too!

One of the moms that changed her mind nineteen years ago came to visit us at the mill with her family. Afterward we had breakfast and great fellowship.They are attending a Christian Church every Sunday and we encouraged them to get married. We know that “obedience is better than sacrifice”. Please pray for this beautiful family! They are so thankful for all the help they have received from this ministry and they continue to let us know how grateful they are to God for all He has done in their lives!



Victoria and Vilma (Calvary Life)                  Yvette and her daughter (6 months old)


Another day a woman walked by and Carmen starting talking to her. She wasn’t going into the mill but asked for prayer that she would get pregnant. Carmen asked her if she was married and she said she was not. So Carmen said “You should get married first, then we will pray that God blesses you with a baby!” 


“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 


We thank God that two security guards have left the killing center recently! (Alan & Joe) We pray that God will bless them in their new jobs! We have another security guard now so please pray for his conviction too. Working at a death camp is sin and their checks are signed with the innocent blood of little boys and girls that did not choose to die. These precious little children are created in the image of God.  We are also grateful for some new soldiers joining us out on the frontline: Vilma, Victoria and Heather. We welcome you. Like )Pastor Ed Martin said “If one person stands at death’s door and recruits just one person, we now have the POWER OF TWO. If both of these people recruit another person to stand at death’s door, we have the POWER OF FOUR. Again, if these four people recruit another person, we have the POWER OF EIGHT, the POWER OF SIXTEEN and so on until the TRUE POWER OF THE CHURCH STANDING IN THE POWER OF THOUSANDS.  BUT IT ALL STARTS WITH THE POWER OF ONE.”


“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preservers.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7


So please join us as we reach out to those who find themselves where they should not be! (3787 Main St. Bpt. Tues. Fri. Sat. 8 AM- 10 AM)  Jesus is the head of the Church. We are His body. We are His mouthpiece, His Hands, His feet.  If not us, then who? If not now? Then When:? If not here, then where? Please… just show up and see what God will do. It is such an awesome privilege to co-labor with Him!  (the Lord of Lord and King of Kings)


For the Least of These,
