A Taste of Hell

As told by John Barros:

Pastor Harry Reeder preached at St. Andrew’s a month or so ago. He invited us all to visit Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham so that Heaven wouldn’t be quite a shock to us… 🙂

I can’t wait to visit there one day but today we sure had a taste of Hell down here. It was absolutely awful. My friend Matthew comes down here early mornings to pray on his way to work. Today he looked up the website and a pop up ad was advertising 50% off abortions up to 24 weeks. Well the people came in droves. We had another 30+ people here with so many late termers. There was absolutely no room inside. When they opened the doors you could see people sitting all over the floors and so many waited out in cars.

The people were extremely angry that we were there and they weren’t holding back from letting us know. During the preaching you could hear groans and yelling coming from inside. Every once and a while they would come out saying the vilest things we have ever heard. Chuck and Mary were here today. They have been doing this type of ministry for over 30 years. They said today was the worst day they have ever experienced. Usually you can cleanse a day like this out but good grief the usual methods aren’t working.

The guy that runs this place was probably doing this to mock Ash Wednesday – he had been asking about it.

The worse thing to us was an 18-year-old girl. Terry came with her mom and her mom’s friend. She was cursing at me while waiting for the doors to open. Her mom turned on me couple of times hollering and screaming.

Terry’s mom left with her friend. In the afternoon, Terry came out and sat on the bricks. I think she was looking for a real Mom and told Karen something was wrong and she was passing out. She put her head against the bricks and called her mom. She began telling her mom about what Randall had done to her. The drugs, the laminera sticks in her cervix, the shot to stop the babies heart. The blood. Unbelievably she did not know that is what they were going to do.

Karen trying to help Terry

Karen couldn’t take it. Terry asked for help over to the wall to sit with Karen. Karen lifted her off the bricks and got her over to us.
You know I have been doing this a long time but this is just way too heartbreaking. Please pray for her tonight. I am really worried about this young lady.

I know this is a long post but there is really no way to get you to see this. So Thankful for Yolie, Audrey, Steven, and the others that served here.
