October is Respect Life month! Join us in showing respect for the lives of the precious children who are scheduled to be aborted here in October!
The next 40 day LifeVigil will be a time of
repentance and mourning
seeking Christ our Lord through prayer
shining Christ’s light of truth to expose evil
faith that God will reward our prayers by changing hearts
hope that God can purify our community and nation
love for vulnerable women and children
glorifying God for the victories!
Jesus laid down His life for you: are you willing to obey His call to sacrifice in His name for the “least of these”? Please consider signing up to cover an hour or more every week during the vigil (an online signup form will be available here soon, or call 661-412-2291 ).
It all starts on Wednesday, September 28 at 5 pm outside Bakersfield City Hall (at the southeast corner of Truxtun Avenue and Eye Street downtown). After a brief time of encouraging our city leaders to join us in seeking to protect our most precious natural resources (local children and women), we will walk ten blocks to the vigil site, 25th & H Streets, where the 24 hour prayer vigil will begin.
On Sunday October 30 from 2 to 3:30 pm, join us for the Life Chain (on Highway 178 downtown).
At the end of the vigil (Sunday November 26 at 6 pm) we will join together at the vigil site (25th & H) as we celebrate God’s victories with food, music, testimonies, and a final candlelight vigil surrounding the abortion chamber.
The innocent blood of the tiny babies whose bodies are broken and crushed by abortionists cries out to God for justice. But Jesus also shed His innocent blood for us, and allowed His body to be broken for us. Through the grace He pours out for us, we can now pour out our own lives for the “least of these” innocent little children, at our local “Calvary,” the FPA abortion chamber.
The song Broken for Me was inspired by the movie the Passion of the Christ, reflecting on how abortion relates to the suffering and sacrifice of Christ. Audio for this song can be found on ReverbNation.com.
If God is motivating you to reach out to pregnant women who are considering abortion, please plan on joining us in Lancaster for the free seminar “Speaking the Truth in Love: an Introduction to Pregnancy Evangelism,” presented by Tim and Terri Palmquist. The seminar will be presented in a weekly series of one-hour sessions, beginning on February 14 (in cooperation with Antelope Valley 40 Days for Life campaign).
New fence outside Bakersfield FPA abortion chamber
A new fence now surrounds the FPA abortion chamber (almost 9 feet high on the south side). FPA had been planning to build the fence for many months, but every time we saw a local fence company there, we asked them not to help the abortion business. We also informed the Bakersfield City Council that the planned fence would extend beyond the legal boundaries.
Ultrasound of 11 week old baby saved today, (Amazingly, this ultrasound was taken by the FPA abortion staff!)
Fridays are usually quiet at the FPA abortion chamber, with no abortionist in sight. But on this Friday as Martha prayed alone on the sidewalk, a young woman rushed down the stairs in tears.
Martha embraced her as she explained that she went to FPA because her boyfriend wants her to abort their baby. But during an ultrasound examination, the FPA staff member not only allowed her to see the pictures, but even allowed her to keep one! Once she saw her baby, the mother knew that she couldn’t go through with the abortion.
A teenage boy came to the FPA abortion chamber several times in recent weeks to try to save his baby, but when it appeared that his teenage girlfriend had gone through with aborting his child, he lost hope. Just then … Continue reading →
