Little Rock, Arkansas, is the home of Arkansas’s last remaining free standing abortion mill.  Arkansas may become the first abortion free state in America if the saints in Little Rock have their way.  Here is the latest Gospel sortie being flown directly into the gates of hell in Little Rock.    ~ Flip

Our new “GONE” billboard campaign has launched in a city that serves as a pivotal center of civil rights history—Little Rock. Partnering with Arkansas Black Americans for Life (a chapter of Arkansas Right to Life), The Radiance Foundation has placed billboards in Little Rock and North Little Rock that claim: “GONE. 15 million and counting.”

In light of the failure of black “civil rights” organizations to protect the Posterity of the black community, GONE continues to hammer away at today’s population control movement that brazenly celebrates the destruction of “unwanted” human life.

The press release, billboard artwork and new video are here:

Amazing things are happening in Arkansas, legislatively, as hearts and minds are engaged in grassroots efforts.

Please pray that this campaign continues to awaken the public to the needless tragedy of abortion.

We pray that many of you are planning to join us in Jackson, Mississippi, this November 7-11, 2012.  Here is a short report of some of the exciting events that took place as Jason Storms and his School of Evangelism moved into Little Rock, Arkansas, after we had just finished storming the gates of hell at the last free standing abortion mill there. 
The battle is being won by simple little Christians living out their faith in the streets of our cities.  To God be all the glory!      ~ Flip

As Chet Gallagher and I are preparing the way of the Lord in Jackson, MS for our States of Refuge regional event, we received this encouraging report from Jason Storms who leads Faithful Soldier School of Evangelism.  They recently returned from storming the gates of hell in Arkansas. The following is the powerful report. Please pray for our efforts. May the Lord raise up more ministries like FSSE to partner with us to liberate America from bloodguiltiness one state at a time in Jesus holy and mighty name! ~ Rusty

Arkansas Tour Report

By Jason Storms

Faithful Soldier School of Evangelism ventured down south to Arkansas this month to assist in a national pro-life effort. States of Refuge, led by Operation Save America, seeks to bring pro-life ministries in successive waves through the five states in our country with one remaining abortion clinic. If one of these clinics closes its doors we will have our first abortion free state since Roe v Wade!

We focused our outreach the first two days at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway – 30 minutes north of Little Rock. We had excellent crowds gather as we open air preached, displayed signs, and distributed literature.In the south most students are professing Christians and claim to be pro-life. The difficulty we encountered was not getting agreement with our message, but rather getting folks to act pro-life.

We frequently heard such phrases as “I would never have an abortion. I think it’s wrong, but it’s not my place to judge.”  This confusion must be driveling from the pulpits because we heard it like a broken record from good church-going, “saved” folks.

We had some success in contesting these bad ideas as many students told us their mind had changed after listening to the preaching and discussing with members of our group. Just as Paul “reasoned and persuaded” (Acts 17,18, 19) so we too seek to be ambassadors of our King. This requires patience, listening, and boldly setting forth the truth of God’s Word with all the force of reason and conscience bearing down upon them. This is how the Holy Spirit brings conviction of sin, knowledge of God and repentance to a lost soul. It is a joy to partner with the Holy Spirit in the great work of the Gospel.

Arrest in Hot Springs 

One of our young men joined with some locals in Hot Springs for some extra-curricular activities. Hot Springs has a thriving homosexual community. In front of a local “gay” bar seemed like a good place to share the gospel. Unfortunately the local police didn’t think so. Aaron, a young FSSE student, was arrested for standing in front of the bar.  After a short discussion the police asked Aaron to turn around. He thought they were going to check him for weapons and then tell him where he should stand to exercise his First Amendment rights. Instead they cuffed him and took him into jail! The next day as we came to bail him out, an officer at the precinct told me “He was telling folks they were going to hell, you just can’t do that. They had to take him in.” Fortunately the ADF has supplied us with a lawyer, the same attorney defending two other brothers who were arrested at the Little Rock abortion clinic two weeks prior during a States of Refuge event.

The Last Arkansas Surgical Abortion Clinic

The lone clinic in Arkansas flaunts its bloody work in the face of the local church. We were blessed to see a handful of locals interceding for babies headed to their death. It was a privilege to stand with them as a voice and a presence against the bloodshed.

We pray that more Saints in Arkansas would hear the call to stand up boldly for Christ. Cowering in the comforts of our suburban community churches will not satisfy Christ’s command to preach the gospel and make disciples of all nations. We were tremendously blessed by the few brave locals who stood on the streets with us, who showed us such love and hospitality, and who fearlessly let their lights shine before men that they may see their good works and glorify their Father in heaven. We pray for them and that the Lord would add to their numbers.

May the continued efforts of the States for Refuge campaign awaken a Spirit of Revival amongst God’s people and end abortion in this nation! Thank you for all your prayers and support on behalf of our labor for Christ and the voiceless.


In Christ,

Jason Storms

The theology of heaven became biography in the streets of Little Rock, Arkansas, September 15-18, 2012, as saints from across our nation brought the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the gates of hell – the last remaining abortion mill in the state of Arkansas.  Here is Rusty’s report of the event.

Enjoy! ~ Flip



We hope several of you are planning to join us in Little Rock, Arkansas, this September 12-16, 2012, as part of our States of Refuge project.  God has been doing so much through the local group in preparation for this great event.  We will be at high schools, abortionists neighborhoods, the Capital, and, of course, we will be at the last free standing abortion mill in the state of Arkansas.  Here is Rusty’s invitation.

See you at the gates in Little Rock! ~ Flip

Dear Champion of the Lord and the Preborn,

One of the important aspects of OSA’s ministry is to raise up and train local Christians to storm the gates of hell in their community. One such person is chaplain Rich Hagen in Little Rock, AR. Here is his invitation for those far and near to come to our next phase of the States of Refuge campaign. We hope to see you there.


The next phase in the States of Refuge Campaign is from September 12-16, OSA will conduct a regional event in Little Rock, Arkansas. It is our desire to present to Our Lord Jesus an abortion free state and to work until this is accomplished. This is the Gospel in action, out in the highways and byways compelling people to come in to the kingdom and pressing upon them the crown rights of King Jesus. We are asking, even pleading for the Christians of Arkansas to come out and be the light and salt in Little Rock.

“Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.” (Proverbs 31:8)

You can view our facebook page and stay up to date with schedules and events. Each evening we will hold rallies/worship services and hear sober and God-honoring preaching by Rev. Flip Benham and Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas and others. Each day we will be out preaching at the abortion facility, where they kill our nation’s children. Come hear and see what the Lord is doing all across this nation to “stop the mouths of lions…escape[d] the edge of the sword…[and] wax[ed] valiant in fight…” right here in Little Rock. We do serve an Almighty and Glorious God.

God has already gone before us and secured a host church, Victory Fellowship, and reasonable hotel accommodations.

We will be having our next regional event  in Little Rock, Arkansas, September 12-16, 2012.  The state of Arkansas has one remaining abortion mill in it.  It is our prayer that, as the Church of Jesus Christ in Little Rock rises up on behalf of her preborn brothers and sisters, that soon there will be no abortion mills left in the state of Arkansas.

It may seem inconceivable to us but it is inevitable with God!  

Enjoy! ~ Flip

There is no rest for the weary. Thankfully, the Thomas Nation made it home safe and sound from our national event in North Carolina. We returned to the usual challenges associated with this great battle for the souls of men, the lives of children, and the future of our nation.

We now focus on the next phase in the States of Refuge Campaign. From September 12-16, OSA will conduct a States of Refuge regional event in Little Rock, Arkansas. God has already gone before us and secured a host church, Victory Fellowship, and reasonable hotel accommodations.

New Family Birth in the Battle

Good morning my dear brother of our Lord Jesus!

My family and I were at the National Event last week in North Carolina. This was our first event and we thank God for each moment we spent there among the saints at the gates of Hell – we came back a changed family.

My family and I would like to plan to attend the gathering in Little Rock in September and wondered if there was someone we needed to contact so we could get hotel info, etc as soon as it was available. I am not sure to whom this email is directed, perhaps I was able to meet you, if not I pray we will in just a few short weeks.

There are 10 of us in our family, upon the death of my husband in 2009 my oldest daughter and son in law, adopted me and the four youngest siblings left to raise and now we are a blended family of 10. It is a true blessing.

Thank you for your help – may the Lord bless you and keep you close to Him.

Abiding in Christ,

Angela Hagenow

It is our prayer that many of you will be encouraged by this family that is coming to Little Rock and be inspired to join us as well. Remember, our righteous goal is to soon present to our Lord the first abortion free state in America. We need your help to accomplish this Kingdom task in Jesus’ name!

We are now at the Word and Warfare stage of our campaign Operation – First Abortion Free State.  We will be reading the entire Bible (unsheathing the Sword of the Spirit) at the gates of hell (the local abortion mills) in all five of the states that have one remaining abortion mill within their boundaries.  Our desire is to present to our Lord the first abortion free state at the Lincoln Memorial where we will also present to Him our National Emancipation Proclamation for the Unborn Child, in January, 2013.  The spiritual significance of this is monumental for it frees God’s hand to heal our land.  Below the dates and places for Word and Warfare. ~ Flip

Word in Warfare Opportunities

The States of Refuge campaign continues to march on. The next major push in implementing the vision is called Word in Warfare. Brother Chet Gallagher (Our state leader in Mississippi), based upon his study of Scripture, devised this battle strategy in spiritual warfare to be employed at the gates of hell throughout the land.

The Word in Warfare mission is designed to inspire Christians to unsheathe the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and declare, “Thus Saith the Lord” by reading aloud the entire Bible at key gates. In this instance, it will be employed at the five states, Arkansas, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming at the one death camp remaining that defiles our land. Each state leader will commence this aspect of the States of Refuge campaign on different dates.

Chet Gallagher in Jackson, Mississippi and Coach Dave Daubenmire in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, will kick their Word in Warfare assignment off on April 2, 3, and 4th. This is a strategic time. The Spring Forty Days for Life ends on April 1st. Right after this time of fasting and prayer, Word in Warfare will unleash God’s Word. We are praying God’s Word will go forth in power to defeat this evil that murders babies, enslaves the workers of iniquity, defiles our land, and invokes God’s judgement upon our nation.

Remember the power of God’s word according to Jeremiah. Jeremiah 1:9, 10 declares, “Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said to me, Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.” God’s Word spoken by God’s people in faith can root up what is evil and plant what is good in God’s sight.

A Kansas Pastor in Jackson Hole, Wyoming plans on commencing the Word in Warfare on April 27, 28, and 29th. Pastor Mark Kiser in Little Rock, Arkansas plans on initiating Word in Warfare on May 4, 5, and 6th. Cal Zastrow is still working on the dates for Fargo, North Dakota. As soon as he gets them to me, I’ll pass them unto you.

All these state leaders need volunteers to come and boldly delcare God’s Word to the principalities and powers dominating these abortion mills. Please pray about supporting this next phase of the campaign in some manner. These men and this ministry need prayer. Let them know you are praying. These men need team members to stand with them to wield the sword of the Spirit in the battle for the souls of men, the lives of babies, and the future of our nation. Please try to come and participate if at all possible. Each team leader needs about 20 team members optimum and 10 team members minimum. Help send them if you cannot go yourself with financial support.

You can send your donations to:

States of Refuge
P.O. Box 3126
Waco, TX 76707

or donate online at:

To contact these men to volunteer to pray or participate in one of these states, here’s the contact information: 

Jackson, Mississippi – April 2, 3, and 4th | Contact Chet Gallagher at

Sioux Falls, South Dakota – April 2, 3, and 4th | Contact Coach Dave at coach@ptsalt.comg

Little Rock, Arkansas – May 4, 5, and 6th | Contact Pastor Mark Kiser at

Fargo, North Dakota – Dates to be determined | Contact Cal Zastrow at

God willing, I plan on participating in four of the five Word in Warfare events. Since there is a conflict in schedule with the April 2, 3, and 4th, dates, I plan on joining Coach in South Dakota. With all dispatch, please pass on this strategic ministry opportunity and call your friends, family, and churches to help get boots on the ground in these five states during this next phase of the States of Refuge campaign. Thanks!

Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

Here is an article from the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Friday, January 20, 2012.  Remember Welsco, the company that was delivering containers of gas to the abortion mill in Little Rock?  When they found out that they were doing business with an abortion mill, they asked for their tanks back and made it clear that all business ties with the mill would be severed.  When the police came to help the company recover the containers, they were asked to leave the premises.  Welsco is now having to sue the abortion mill to get their empty containers back.  What a “good neighbor” the abortion industry is.     ~ Flip

Here is the flyer we will be passing out in Little Rock, Arkansas, this December 7th – 11th.  It exposes the horrible truth of what abortionist Tom Tvedten does to God’s precious image bearers.  Tvedten is one of the two remaining abortionists killing children in the state of Arkansas.  Our desire is that he would turn to Christ and find the forgiveness that only Jesus can give.  Tvedten has been killing babies for years, and the innocent blood of these children is crying out from the ground to Almighty God.  It is time for the Church in Little Rock, Arkansas, to rise up in the Name of Christ and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Abortion will come to an end in Arkansas when the Church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind it will come to an end – and not one second sooner!

We have been to Jackson, Wyoming; we have been to Jackson, Mississippi; and now we are headed to Little Rock, Arkansas, December 7-11, 2011.  We are preparing the way for our States of Refuge Campaign which will begin on January 22, 2012.

If you would like to join us in this Gospel raid on the abortion industry in Little Rock, here is a special invitation from a Kansas Pastor.  

“Saints, I have been doing a little research about abortion in the state of Arkansas.  Arkansas, as with Wyoming and Mississippi, has one, one, one surgical abortion clinic left in the entire state.  This clinic is open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.  What would happen if the Church of Jesus Christ in Little Rock, Arkansas, made up her mind to love her neighbor as herself and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves?  What would happen if the theology of the church house became biography at the gates of hell (the local abortion mill in Little Rock)?

The answer is so very simple.  Soon there would be no more abortion in Little Rock.  This would make Arkansas the first abortion free state in America.  Do you believe in miracles?  I do, and I know you do too!  We know the author of them – JESUS!

The owner of the last remaining free standing abortion mill in Arkansas is Dr. Louis Jerry Edwards MD.  PA.  He is also an abortionist.  The now primary abortionist is Dr. Thomas H. Tvedten.  Both of these men are very elderly and in poor health.  Sometimes abortionist Tvedten will start an abortion and have to call Edwards to come and finish the procedure.  Ugh!

Owner and abortionist Edwards is also the man who offered free abortions to hurricane Katrina victims.  Ugh, ugh!

I would like to do a prelude to States of Refuge, December 7-11, 2011.  It would probably be best if we could drive or fly in Wednesday evening the 7th and leave Sunday evening the 11th.

Note:  I have spoken to maybe six prolife leaders in Little Rock.  They will not … shall we say… be welcoming us due to our use of graphic signs.  They will probably not like the preaching, sound systems, or neighborhood visits either.

Please let me know either way if you are or are not interested asap  :o)
