Go Fish Ministries, Inc. News Letter Nov.1, 2011
Jesus said: Follow me and I will make you fishers for the souls of others. Matthew 4:19
Well, November is here and we’ve just had one of the most important elections in a very long time. I am heartbroken over the results of the battle for life on initiative 26. I can only say that we need to get on our knees and repent. According to Psalms 139 and Jeremiah 1, we are created, chosen and called even before God formed us in the womb. We have no excuse before God for not passing this initiative other than our own selfishness and the greed of the Planned (Un)Parenthood business. And that’s not a legitimate excuse. We need to be saving babies lives, not killing them. Even if a young girl is raped and impregnated, it is God who is the creator of life. If she is so young, her life is endangered, then this would fall in the category of a killing in self-defense. And if a young girl is brought in for a medical abortion, then DNA should be saved to find the father of that child and he should be put in jail. Planned Parenthood only reported one case of an underage child being raped in several years. They have been sending the girls back to their abusers and covering these cases up. And if a woman suffers an ectopic pregnancy, it would be considered justifiable. I don’t believe that God would condemn anyone as guilty in these circumstances if they have done everything they possible can to prevent these occurrences from happening in the first place. Now if a woman has an ectopic pregnancy as a result of an STD from an illicit relationship, then that would be another matter. But these kinds of occurrences happen so infrequently, that we cannot continue to allow innocent lives to be killed for the convenience of selfish mothers who would serve their own best interests rather than her child’s. Abortion should be rare and only when a mother’s life is clearly at risk for physical reasons, not psychological ones. No one is going to die because they are in distress over a pregnancy, and neither should a child! I was once in a predicament myself, when I was going through domestic violence. I had two young children and was pregnant with my third at the time. I was really distraught about bringing another child into an already abusive situation and prayed for God to take my child. I would never have aborted it, but God heard my prayer and I lost my baby. I suffered through many years of guilt over that prayer and learned that you better be careful what you pray for, because you just might get what you asked for. I can only imagine the guilt a woman might feel if she actually killed her baby voluntarily. Statistics show that abortions are clearly linked to depression and other psychological disturbances. It has also been linked to breast cancer, but these links are denied by Planned (Un)Parenthood and others who are protecting their cash flow. Abortion kills babies and destroys mothers’ lives.
Well enough of that. Back when I did my bike-a-thon I received my very first donation to my ministry. I gave half of that donation in a church offering as a first fruits offering to God. Well, since that time God has truly blessed my ministry. Our Website just reached 10,000 views last week. Also I found a self-defense quiz on-line and added it to the website. I sent off to the company for their DVD sample for $2 and emailed them to ask if they thought this training would be good for victims of sexual and domestic violence. A lady emailed me back and said that she thought it would be great for us. When I told her about my ministry efforts, she said that she would look into their warehouse to see if she could find us any freebies. I didn’t think much of it, and told her that would be great if she did. I expected something insignificant, at best. But a few days ago, I received two boxes in the mail. When I opened them up, I found that they had sent me the whole self-defense seminar on DVD, plus the training manuals, and the book to go with it. Needless to say, I want to use what God has blessed us with, so if anyone would like to help me plan and put on a self-defense seminar for this ministry, then please let me know as soon as possible. We just need a place with a TV and DVD player and a little space. A fair sized living room would do fine.
My garden is doing well this year. My greens are growing, we’ve gotten a few beans, and are starting to get some peas now. I’ve been trying to plant peas in the spring but they kept dying on me as soon as it turned hot. So when I got my Gardening in Mississippi book, I found out they do better in the fall down here. I tried that and it seems to be working. I still have a few squash and tomato plants that I have covered up for the cold front coming in the next few days, but we’ll see if they make it or not. I’ve been adding compost as I can, but there’s just not enough to go around just yet. But my soil is slowly improving and hopefully it will get better each year. I’m learning as I go, so it’s a working experiment. I just transplanted two baby blueberry bushes, so I hope they do well. I just need a peach, apple, or pear tree. Maybe I can find an affordable one in the spring. I hope so. That’s on my wish list.
