This morning, a group of 50 pro-lifers of all ages—including members of the Rockford Teens for Life club—gathered outside the abortion clinic in Rockford, IL.
We just got an e-mail from one of the carolers, who told us:
In freezing weather and a blowing snowstorm an amazing group of 40-50 Christians gathered to pray and sing Christmas carols as an offering of love to God and hope for His children facing abortion.
The group sang and prayed for almost an hour. Ten minutes after most of the carolers left a young couple came out… They drove up quickly to the remaining pro-lifers because they wanted to share with them the joyful news: “We didn’t do it!” They told us they are going to have twins and wanted to share the news with the people singing.
The grace of God is an amazing thing. In Rockford at least one young family will have a Christmas to always remember and be thankful for. In an interesting note the young lady who organized our “empty manger” Christmas caroling just happens to be a twin. We are are all humbled and thankful because we know “with God all things are possible.”
