Dear Pro-life friends,
One of the sidewalk counselors approached a couple that was walking toward the abortion center. They took some information and stopped briefly to listen to the counselor explain about the risks and emotional trauma that often accompany an abortion. The couple thanked the counselor, but said they were not there for an abortion.
The couple stopped in front of the entrance along with some other people, waiting for their turn to enter the facility. They glanced through the literature as they waited. About five minutes later, they walked back to the counselor and the man said. “I just want to thank you for talking to us and giving us this information. We were going to have an abortion this morning, but we changed our minds.”
The counselor provided more information about a pregnancy resource center nearby, and explained some of the help that could be provided. They thanked the counselor and walked back to their car. They happily waved to the counselors as they drove away.
Please pray for this couple to continue to stand firm in their choice to give life to their unborn baby.

Wait… they said they weren’t there for an abortion then they said they were going to have an abortion but changed their minds?
Haven’t done much sidewalk counseling, have you?
Praise the Lord Jesus!
God bless the lone counselor.
The very first sentence of the article communicates that the sidewalk counselor wasn’t alone.
