Blessed Day

As told by John Barros:

What an unbelievably blessed day today was! OWC was not doing any abortions today so I got to spend some time with the guys at the 33rd Street jail. God is really moving in that place.

Then Chris Larson, the president and COO of Ligonier Ministries, came by to take me for a burger. I still can’t believe he did that. Ligonier is where I get fed. This ministry opens God’s word and gives you strength so you can fight the good fight. If you aren’t following Ligonier on Facebook, I highly recommend it.


Chris wanted to see OWC for himself and just poured encouragement into me. I was so humbled that he would do that. The Sprouls and Ligonier believe that we in the reformed tradition need to go out and confront the world with the gospel, and want to build us up to do the work of ministry.

Then I got to go around the corner and see Chris, Heather, and dear little Olivia. They are doing so great.


It was a totally amazing day. No babies dying, new life, and leaders of the church building up the saints. It doesn’t get better than this, folks. I may be rambling but you know I do not deserve any of this. Why God called a filthy, vile sinner like me to Himself I will never understand. To have me stand with Him on that sidewalk and jail calling people to come home… I am the most blessed man there is. 2 Corinthians 5:21.
