Sometimes, God graciously chooses to use our foolish mistakes to bring about tremendous good in ways we could’ve never imagined.

Takesha was headed to an appointment to abort her unborn child. Single and in her early twenties, she already had two kids at home. “It’s a hard place to be in,” she said.
Standing between her and the front door of the clinic was John, who had the Living Waters “In the Womb” tract. He lovingly pleaded with her not to kill her baby and explained that the little body would be disposed of like trash. She seemed surprised by the information.
But she quietly accepted the tract, thanked him, and continued into the clinic. John prayed as he watched her walk through the front door. There was nothing more he could do. But God began to work on Takesha’s heart.
John stands outside this clinic nearly every single day. He has lovingly pleaded with hundreds of mothers to keep their babies. The number of women who chose life for their babies—because of John’s truthfulness, love, and prayers—is nothing short of miraculous!
“I tell everyone about ‘180,’” John explains. “Many have watched it while sitting in that abortion clinic with their earbuds on and have chosen life.”
About an hour later John saw Takesha about to drive away. He ran to the car and asked what she was doing. “I’m going to Choices,” she said—a nearby women’s pregnancy clinic.
She had decided to keep her baby!
John met her at the health clinic later that day to share the gospel, encourage her, and pray for her and the baby. “What changed your mind?” he asked. “When you said, ‘Nothing is too big for God,’” she replied. Takesha was five months pregnant with a baby girl that she nicknamed “little big head,” she told John as she proudly showed him the ultrasound.
Your financial gift today will help make resources like “180” possible, which in turn makes life-changing encounters like these possible.
