Seven (7) Turnarounds Locally
Day #8: We Thought We Lost Her-
The local police, who are frequent visitors to the sidewalk, approached myself and another Sidewalk Counselor about our activity on the sidewalk. While this was all going on, a young girl walked up to the PP gate and was going in.
I turned to greet her and asked if we could share information on free services and options available to her. She appeared to be a bit intimidated by the police presence, but took the materials anyway. Karen, the other Sidewalk Counselor with me, invited the young girls to step away to talk for just a minute.
The young girl called her Aunt to come back and talk with the counselor about the "free ultrasound" across the street in the medical mobile unit.
Despite Karen spending several minutes talking with the young girl and her aunt, sharing all the free services and options available to support her with LIFE, the young girl chose to go in to Planned Parenthood and for her pre-abortion ultrasound.
About this time, 4 first-time sidewalk prayer volunteers arrived to stand vigil and pray. I shared with them the news of the young girl going into Planned Parenthood and requested they pray specifically for her and the new LIFE she was carrying.
The vigil shift changed and we heard no more about her...............until Monday morning February 18th when the Aunt pulled up in front of PP and asked a prayer volunteer to pass a message on to Karen............that message..........."Kelsey chose LIFE".
