Love Your Enemies

As told by John Barros: 

“When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” –  Proverbs 16:7

Today was pretty cool. We had one turn away, and a young lady by the name of Saritta chose life and went to Choices. She listened to everything, and then later in the day I think just seeing that Samantha let her know she was there for her was the icing on the cake.

She came out and said “well, I’m not going to do this. Aren’t you going to give me the information where I can get some help?” It was such a joy for Samantha and I to pray with her and send her on her way.

The workers here are definitely “the enemy”. Our Lord in Luke 6:27-36 tells us to love our enemies. I do love these folks. They are warned every day, but they know they are loved. Well today the security guard, Kerry, called me over to tell me some good news. The Indian girl that Debbie worked with all day last Thursday actually chose life!

We were there till late afternoon, and she went in, but when it came time for her turn she just couldn’t do it. He also asked me for business cards and gave one to a young lady that doesn’t know what she wants to do. Please pray for her.

I know this sounds crazy but some folks that have chosen life lately and went to Choices have told the ladies there that they tell girls inside that they can trust me. Only the Lord can do things like this. Please continue to pray for the workers here. Several have quit lately and others have come and asked for prayer to be able to leave.

So blessed to serve with Philip and Samantha. They are incredible. We were also blessed to have John and Linda from church come down to help and pray.
