John Barros Saves Lives at the Orlando Women’s Center.

John Barros Pro Life sidewalk counselor saving unborn human life.

I always tell people that Gods timing is not our timing but he showed that in the most powerful way today.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saithe the Lord.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than yours  Isaiah 55:8-9

I will never forget what happened today. It began like so many Thursdays at the Orlando Women’s Center. The ladies (Reiza and Keila)  returned for their second day of their labor and delivery abortions with pillows, blankets, and all the things they need to be comfortable.

These people have had a whole day of being loved the day before and it is so hard to watch them come back the next day. Reiza brought her daughter Keila back today. There was a language problem but they were ministered to all day yesterday. They didn’t want to hear anything from anyone.

Today they were dropped off and went inside. A while later an Uber driver named Patricia showed up. She knew these people (Reiza and Keila). She agreed to be a translator and then the most amazing thing I have seen happened. They bother Repented of their abortion!! There was one problem. They had to stop this abortion and have the laminera removed from her (Keila) Cervix. One of the workers was on the porch yelling at Reiza but she stood strong. She got Keila out of there. Then I told them to go to Winnie Palmer Hospital.

I have not had any good come from Winnie Palmer Hospital five times before and have had the Nurse call saying that at this point the babies are dead. Just don’t know what else to do and was just so Thankful they were gone from here.

Donna was gone so Karen and I just prayed for God to work. After a couple of hours Karen left to go home and get ready because she is also a counselor at First Life.

Then the worst thing I could imagine happened. Winnie Palmer Hospital sent them (Reiza and Keila) back here. They refused to get involved. Then when they went back inside this dump they (Orlando Women’s Center) refused to see them because they had left. It was unbelievable.

The prayer and work was fierce. They (Orlando Women’s Center) finally agreed to take the laminera out but (Reiza and Keila) had to sign releases of liability and pay the full price for the abortion even though they weren’t having one.

I texted Karen and she came back. Then they (Reiza and Keila) came out and Karen drove with them to First Life Center for Pregnancy.

The abortionist Randall Whitney came out to talk to me. He laughed and said “I guess someone changed their mind eh John? These kids”

At First Life Center for Pregnancy, it was such a contrast to this Hell Hole. In that Godly environment Reiza and Keila were presented with the Gospel and both made professions of faith.

Her Precious little baby is 20 weeks and one day and everything is fine!!! God is so Good and His ways are Way Beyond Ours.

It is impossible to bring you all the emotions and warfare that went into this. It was an Amazing work if God. He broke a couple of stubborn people and saved a very special baby. Please Pray for all these folks!!

The image of Christ never seen before!

The image of Christ never seen before!

The Image is a gruesome reversed photograph of a man murdered on a cross. There is clear and convincing proof in the body of scientific evidence in favor of the belief that the image is that  of Jesus Christ!

For those who are a little unsure of what the “Shroud of Turin” is, let me give you a very basic description and the rest of the article will tell you what I have learned in the last thirty-five years. The Shroud is a gruesome reversed photograph of a man murdered on a cross. As Catholics, we would never have to believe that Shroud is truly the one placed on Our Lord when he was prepared for the tomb on Good Friday. The Church is careful not to give an outright endorsement—no more than it would to any other of its treasured relics. And yet when Pope Benedict XVI himself paid a visit to Turin in 2010, he remarked that the Shroud is an icon, “written with the blood of a crucified man in full correspondence with what the Gospels tell us of Jesus.”

Learning more about the history of The Shroud drew me to learn more about the Sudarium of Oviedo, Spain as well. This is believed to be the actual facecloth placed over Christ’s head as he was laid out in the tomb. Some think the Shroud of Turin only could date as early as 1190 because of the infamous 1988 carbon-14 dating test (that was later discredited). The history for the Sudarium in Oviedo, Spain is known more reliably. The Sudarium was inside a chest of relics whisked away from Jerusalem when it was conquered by a Persian king in the seventh century. The chest, with the Sudarium, ended up in several Spanish cities, being carried northward for safety as the invading Muslim armies took over southern Spain in the eighth century, eventually ending up in extreme northern Spain at Oviedo in 840.

Pro-Life Brings Christian Unity

Pro-Life Brings Christian Unity

“We are seeing the unity in the body of Christ that all of us prayed for—that Jesus called for—in the pro-life movement.”

First Image, which operates four Portland-area pregnancy resource centers and Oregon’s first mobile ultrasound unit, recently received four new ultrasound machines—a donation worth more than $120,000. To do so, the evangelical ministry first had to overcome a theological barrier to forge a deeper partnership with pro-life Catholics. Full Article

First Image and the archdiocese, the two groups signed an agreement that made a way for Catholics to further support the evangelical ministry’s outreach while preserving their doctrinal distinctions. “Our posture has always been to collaborate with as broad a swath as possible while holding to our evangelical core,” said Larry Gadbaugh, First Image CEO and a former pastor. “We wanted to further the mission that we had a common conviction about.”

Their collaboration allowed 4US, a charity founded by Catholics, to donate the machines to First Image despite the theological disagreements over its mission statement.
