The following comes from a Dec. 27 email from the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants.
Today at FPA was a typical day. There were three counselors and up to about ten prayer warriors on the sidewalk throughout the morning. Most couples took the information but continued on to the mill. Several couples shook their heads and refused any information. We had a chance to speak again with different individuals waiting in the parking area who were there to “support their friends”. They listened and many agreed they didn’t want this to happen, but couldn’t convince their friend not to go into the mill. We could only ask that they read through and keep the handouts, and we pointed out the post-abortion counseling information on the back of the pink handout.
A girl whom two of the counselors spoke with back in November, text messaged one of the counselors earlier this week telling her that she decided to keep her baby and that she is now three months pregnant. When she left us at FPA, the counselors were unsure. One counselor had given the girl her phone number, letting her know that if she needed someone to talk to, they could meet up some time. She has decided to take the counselor up on this and they are planning to meet this upcoming week for coffee. The counselor stopped in at Life Choices in Poway and was given a bag full of things for the four-month-old baby the girl already has.
Recently a high school senior approached one of our Saturday prayer warriors on the sidewalk outside the El Cajon Planned Parenthood. His girlfriend is pregnant and they were contemplating abortion. He remembered seeing a group of people praying on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood and decided to go there and see if he could talk with someone. The prayer warrior spent two hours talking with the man and he decided to talk with his girlfriend about life for their baby. Both the young man and his girlfriend have been in contact with our sidewalk counselor and she is helping them to get settled with all the things they need.
