We received the following letter from a Christian who saw a graphic image of abortion:
This is J from the Days of Awe conference in Sandpoint. We met briefly on Friday and I wanted to follow up with you about your ministry.
First, I wanted to thank you for everything that you are doing to fight for the lives of the unborn. Americans as a whole have grown callous to the murder of our children and they need to be forced to see it for what it is.
I knew that it was a horror, so I'd avoided seeing any images related to what is going on. But I saw what was in the pamphlets that you provided. With God as my witness, I've wept in prayer the last two night over the murder of our children due to having visualized what is really going on. I've asked the Lord, "How long Lord? How long until these children are avenged?" knowing that vengeance belongs to the Lord. I don't think we're going to have to wait very long.
I believe that my ministry such as it is will continue to be focused on preaching the gospel whenever and wherever I can, nevertheless, my grief over this has lit a fire in me that I hope burns forever. I will be doing what I can do from this day forward instead of just saying that I oppose it and being basically complacent like the majority of "Christians" out there.
I can see myself boldly preaching about this now that I'm awake to it. Sunday night I dreamed that I was confronting a great number of people over this grievous sin. I am normally a quiet and non-confrontational person, but in my dream I had absolutely no care in the world for myself because I was standing up for the innocent who have no one else to stand up for them.
Perhaps I'll be called to be specifically involved in the future, but in any event I just wanted to let you know the impact you've made with this ministry in a follower of Christ. I thank you for waking me up.
We very much appreciate hearing from J and are glad he was impacted. We pray he turns the impact to action. Know though that Christians do not need aspecial calling to interpose on behalf of the preborn. We are already told in scripture to love our neighbor as ourselves, which love must be manifested in deed.
