April Prayer Update

a special baby shower

What a joy to celebrate both Kaleigh and her precious baby boy a few weeks ago in our home—we had a full house!  It is so awesome to come together in order to pamper, pray over, and present the gospel to these mamas who choose to repent and turn from evil—doing so outside the very building where their child is scheduled to be murdered!  Please pray with us for the safe delivery of Dorryen Emanual (due the end of this month) and that his parents would come to know Christ as Savior and walk to please Him!  We are delighted that God has given us a relationship them!

the whole truth and nothing but the truth

“From the first time I met you at Planlou and kevanned Parenthood, I have told you the truth.  And I will continue to do so.  My wife and I want to continue a relationship with you and desire to be your friend. I could think, ‘I want you to be my friend so I won’t bring up the hard things.’ But because I am your friend, I have to tell you the hard things!” This was Kevan’s preface to a conversation over dinner with the father of Kaleigh’s baby—so grateful Kevan was able to spend an hour and a half talking about the gospel, fatherhood, fornication, right relationships, and abortion.  Please pray that Lou will come to a saving faith in Christ alone.

 

another baby rescued

20160330_183923We praise the Lord that another baby was rescued from certain death earlier this month!  This precious little preborn being escorted to his execution by his parents, was also being escorted by an Uber driver.  I didn’t know this.  But when I asked the man behind the wheel if he would please turn around and park across the street so that I could talk with the couple in the back, he said, “Yes!”  When the couple got out of the car they thought I was going to walk them into the building—I literally had to hold them back.  How grateful I am that God had us so far from the entrance at that point, that they were willing to listen to me call them to repent from the sin of murder offering them help and hope through Christ, AND that the Uber driver had driven away! And how incredible to watch these parents turn from a path that was leading not only to their baby’s destruction, but theirs as well. That evening our family went to their home to once more share Christ’s love by praying over them and giving them a Mama Bag—filled with precious baby items and pampering soap for her.  The enemy still desires their (then)10 week old child to be sacrificed to Molech and is pressuring them through her family to abort. Please pray that they will remain resolved in their decision and that God would open the door for us to speak to them and/or see them again if He so wills!  And that they would be saved!  We know the Holy Spirit is drawing them to the Savior, with or without us!

 

operation save america

Operation Save America is coming to Wichita, KS this summer, July 16-23!  But they are planning to travel to KC for a city wide rally Tuesday evening, July 19th (held at Grace Christian Fellowship Church of Wyandotte County) and a full day of ministry at Planned Parenthood, The Center for Women’s Health, and other places the next day, Wednesday, July 20th.  If you are near Wichita or live in our area we HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you avail yourself to this cause.  Please prayerfully consider NOW marking these dates on your calendar in order to keep it free and as a reminder to pray!  If you live in the KC area, and spend time faithfully praying for the ministry that happens on the Front Line of LIFE, it would be of great value to attend the rally on the 19th, and get your feet wet the next day—and we urge you to do so!  Please watch this vimeo clip to get an idea of what an OSA city wide event looks like: https://vimeo.com/53810637 And check out their webpage for more information on OSA: http://www.operationsaveamerica.org/

abolish human abortion

“Time to Win a Battle Ministries” stands to proclaim God’s Word on many front lines in our culture. “Truth is fallen in the streets” and we desire to be one that stands in the Gap—both in prayer and in practice.   We declare ourselves to be Abolitionists! Our stand for the pre-born is based on the truth that babies are made in the image of God.  Abortion is child sacrifice—doing violence to His image bearers in the place of incarnation, where the Word was made flesh—and we seek an immediate abolition of this wicked practice.  As a foundation, we are:

Ÿ Biblical—the concept of abolitionism (the removal of evils) is derived from the word of God. Our call is to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8). The Bible does not merely command believers to abstain from evils but also to “expose them” (Eph. 5:11). The practice of “pure and undefiled religion” is to look after the orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained by the world (James 1:27). To remain consistent we are required to keep the two great commandments—love God and love our neighbor as our self (Luke 4:18-19).

Ÿ Providential—vs Pragmatic mindset. We do not trust in war-horses or chariots. We trust in the spiritual means and methods God has given to us in His word. We look to the Spirit of God to lead us, believing He is our ever present guide and that He is not silent. It is the power of God working through His Holy Spirit that changes hearts. We acknowledge that God has made men active participants in this drama, but we trust in Him above our own understanding (Prov. 3).                                

Ÿ Gospel Centered—the chief weapon we possess in the fight against abortion is the Gospel. Abortion is sin and the only answer for sin is repentance and a saving faith in the finished work of Christ. The Gospel alone can truly and permanently mobilize human action, motivate moral behavior, and mandate consistent, compassionate social justice. It brings redemption from destruction; it is the wellspring of love, hope, and joy, and the real answer to abortion.

Ÿ Body Driven—abolition is an obligation of the Church. We seek to awaken the Church to fulfill her ordained purpose to be salt and light in this sin spoiled and darkened world. The church must take the gospel to the ends of the earth and bring it into conflict with every dark deed of man.  It was the church of Christ that sought for abolition of infanticide in Rome, chattel slavery in the British Empire and the United States, twin killing in Nigeria, temple prostitution of children in India, etc. Christians are to “abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good” (Rom. 12:9), to expose evil (Eph. 5:11), and to destroy the ungodly thinking that defends evil (2 Cor. 10:5). We are exhorted in Scripture to rescue the weak from death, snatch the falling from flames, and open our mouths for the innocent.

Ÿ Immediatists—allowing abortion in some cases along the way to its total abolition is neither strategically sound nor consistently Christian. You cannot abolish any evil by justifying or allowing it to continue in some cases. Though seemingly pragmatic, this strategy is compromise and its promise of effectiveness is false. We reject incremental and gradual regulation of evil. We must make no compromise with sin or the means of fighting Sin. God never accepts a gradual repentance (individually or nationally) but rather demands a radical cutting off and turning towards Christ alone in total faith. Repentance is a complete reversal of belief, thought, and action.

February Prayer Update

We rejoice at the gift of Philip Lewis Bryan, born on the morning of January 27th, weighing 9#, 5 oz!  Thanks for your prayers! We fell in love instantly! (Actually, we already loved him, of course!  But there is something about laying your eyes on your sweet darling for the very first time!)  Tirzah and Edward are enjoying their new sibling!  But Edward doesn’t understand why his brother won’t play with him right now—after all that is what I’ve been telling him since the day we found out we were having a boy—“you guys will have so much fun together”!  Children are a blessing from the Lord! This week has found our family sharing the lovely flu bug that turns into a rotten head cold!  We are holding our children more as we take this illness as an excuse to rest as much as we possibly can!  We are grateful for God’s healing hand!

the wreck of the century

1495469_10208563794357724_5824037950558625076_n“It was a dark and stormy nigh—”…uh, morning!  Kevan was behind the wheel of his Buick at 6:30 am—light rain was falling as he drove the ever-winding narrow Highway 5 to work.  A road he had driven many times before.  When all of a sudden, as he rounded one sharp turn, a suburban from the oncoming traffic crossed the middle line and rammed into the front of his Century.  He had only several seconds to prepare the best he could—and we praise the Lord for His mighty hand of protection! Although both vehicles were totaled, God was gracious and spared the lives of both drivers!  The end of this story could have been/should have been so different! We have commented many times since that day that if this wreck had caused serious injury or death, God’s hand would still have been “mighty to save!” We still would have had reason to praise the Lord, bless His Holy name, and rejoice in His goodness.  Our perspective was altered quite drastically that morning, and not a “goodbye” goes by without a thought toward this incident!    We are grateful that through the insurance money, God has provided for us in regards to medical/chiropractic bills and in the purchasing of a “new to us” car!  Kevan just drove our new car home last night.  “The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth and even forevermore”    (Psalm 1:21).

the genesis academy

This month Kevan has had the great privilege to sit under the teaching of a panel of some astute Creation Scientists who desire to pass on their knowledge to the next generation of Creation Defenders—they call the 7 week course “The Joshua Project”!  These classes cover the first 11 chapters of Genesis, and has included 3+ hours of homework each week. It is significant that these specific chapters not only are the foundation of the word of God and the doctrines of our faith, but are also the basis for understanding the laws of science.  What a blessing it has been for Kevan to spend time with these men of science who love and honor the word of God!

harassment at the gated of death

“The Kings of the earth stood up and…were gathered against the Lord and against His Christ…And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto Thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak Thy word” (Acts 4).

A couple Saturdays ago, the police were called during ministry outside of Planned Parenthood. The initial complaint was disorderly conduct, which they defined as “saying anything that could be potentially offensive”; a complete infringing on our rights under the constitution’s first amendment.  We were instructed to not use words like “murder,” say anything to those going in that could be offensive, or carry signs that could be offensive. Devices for amplification were made to be put away—and we were told that there could be no preaching at all.  We were also informed that citations (fines of $500) would be given to those who would violate these demands (in words, signs, actions, etc.) the weeks following.  After “this law” was laid down, the police officers parked right across the street and watched every move!  This incident greatly disturbed us and we immediately went to our knees!

Many began to engage in prayer with us and Kevan contacted several lawyers!  Within 2 days we saw the Lord answer in a mighty way. We received word from both the Assistant City Attorney of Overland Park and a Police Chief—not only was the law on our side, the police officer that spoke that day was out of line!  We know there are many in America who would seek to stop the mouths of those who preach the gospel and stand up against the great evil (but lucrative) practice of child sacrifice. Sadly, this specific officer is one of them!  She has made herself an activist for the side of “death”, even to the degree that would put her own job on the line.  And please pray that liberty and justice would be preserved in Overland Park so that law enforcement would not be able to do that which is right in their own eyes!

The law may turn against the people of God someday soon in our Country.  What a shame it will be when the church wakes up to realize what was not done for Christ and those babies being slaughtered in our city while it was legal to stand and plead for the unborn and preach Christ to all who enter Planned Parenthood!  We are able to legally and openly seek to rescue the innocent being murdered on our watch, unlike those who secretly worked to hide the Jewish people during Hitler’s holocaust.  Let us hold this freedom with courage and strength—seeking on every turn to rescue the perishing and care for the dying!

educating and activating

We are so grateful for the churches that faithfully pray for the Lord of the Harvest to send forth laborers into the harvest of the Abortuaries in our city—and we are moved to report that the last few weeks have shown 20-30 Christians at a time standing on the weekends from at least 6-7 churches in our area! But there are SO MANY MORE churches—including those smack dab in Overland Park—that need to be engaged in this critical front line.  Babies are being murdered every day—there needs to be an outcry for the practice of child sacrifice to be completely abolished in our city (not just accepted as the norm!).  We have made ourselves available to come and share about this great need to ANY church, youth group, Sunday School class, or bible study that would have us!  Kevan also has several excellent messages to share from the pulpit regarding LIFE!  We know that the churches who would request this would already be firmly “pro-life”.  We are not seeking to preach to the choir, of even educate on a subject that might already be known—but to speak in a way that would activate the believers in Kansas City to stand against this great evil in a way they have yet done.  Our goal is not to promote our ministry but simply to equip God’s people to do what Christians should do when the innocent are killed in their midst! “Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction” (Prov 31:8). “Brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth” (Job 29:17).

upcoming travels

Kevan will be leaving for an intense conference in Oklahoma the last weekend of February!  He will be sitting under some powerful preaching/exhortation from men who also desire to see the evil of abortion ABOLISHED in our nation. And as they “go to the streets” with open air preaching and ministry in the public sector, he looks  forward to gleaning from those who also engage the front lines of life all across America!  Would you please pray that God would encourage and strengthen Kevan during this time away? And please pray for good success in their mission.  Due to our new baby, the rest of the family will be staying home!

December Prayer Update

a very merry christmas

christmas family picWe do love this special time of year and want to wish you and your own dear family a very Merry Christmas!  We are grateful that God Himself entered Mary’s womb that He might save the world!  He did not enter our planet through the birth process but actually made His appearance as a human zygote!  The God who made the Universe went through every stage of development before being born. “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son…” (Isaiah 7:14). “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” (Matthew 1:23). Just like every other person, Jesus was fully human at the point of conception! And so, the incarnation of Christ stands in direct conflict with all forms of child sacrifice.  With this letter we want to urge you, dear follower of Jesus Christ, to do whatever you can to actively bring the Gospel into conflict with the evil of abortion!

what God has done

We are amazed as we look back and marvel at all the Lord has accomplished in and through our family and the work He has called our hands to do this last year!  ŸPreaching the Gospel to hundreds here in KC through street evangelism at sporting events, at the intersection between the last 2 abortion mills, and at the gates of Planned Parenthood (PP) as we plead for the unborn! ŸCreation Seminars, Preaching in Churches, Camps, Discipleship Bible Studies, and a Ladies Retreat! ŸSeeing many souls saved for eternity! ŸBlog writing and other correspondence!  ŸEight confirmed babies saved at PP (not counting turn-arounds)—including an amazing encounter 2 weeks ago where we were able to give away a bag filled to the brim with baby needs, pampering items for mama, and the Gospel. Please pray for E and K and our relationship with them. J ŸBeing able to walk a couple into the office of Advice and Aid Pregnancy Center just today after they stopped and listened to Kevan share truth and a better way before they entered the abortion mill!  God is answering prayer for more laborers and the breaches to be exposed in the walls of PP.  Keep praying that God would do both!  ŸAnd most importantly, in the raising of our own children!    We eagerly anticipate the arrival of our newest little boy,  due in just 5 weeks!

happy birthday, darling

We are blessed to celebrate 2 of our saved babies FIRST birthdays in December and January!  Sweet little Martana (Mar-T-ana) and big boy Brayden!  And what a milestone that is, especially since they were scheduled to die just an hour from the time we met their mothers!   They were planned and purposed by God—precious!

October Prayer Letter

end of summer

We were so grateful to wrap up our summer ministry and now carry with us the memories of new and renewed relationships, the knowledge that God’s word faithfully went forth and bore fruit, many souls who were saved (from elementary to highschool age), and all the fun!  The Lord was faithful, as always, to remind of us His promises—and then prove them to be true—when we were overwhelmed!  And He taught us many personal lessons as we leaned into His strength as our own fell short. Thank you for praying and holding up our family with encouragement!

beginning of fall

As we began to sense a change in the season, Deana underwent some complications in her pregnancy!  We were so grateful that after 2 weeks of rest and a “no lift” restriction she and baby are doing very well! Mid-September we discovered that we are having another boy!  Both of our kids are so happy about it!  And that pleases us to no end.  He is a very active baby—which brings us such delight as we await his arrival in January!

We enjoyed another fun-filled and blessed weekend at our Church’s Missionary Fair last month!  We are so grateful for a body of believers who put such a high priority on the great commission—and are amazed as they not only cheer our family on in the ministry but come beside us here in Kansas City to stand outside of Planned Parenthood!

Throughout the summer and into fall the Lord has continued to answer our prayer that He would send more laborers into the specific field of Planned Parenthood!  We have asked you to join us in that prayer, and have been extremely blessed to share in local churches who have committed to pray every week to this end as well!  We want to take a moment to praise God for how He has/is accomplishing this!  Individuals, married couples, and families have not only contacted us, but have come to stand with us!  They have come to observe only to, very quickly, pick up resources to offer those driving in and pick up the mic to plead or preach the gospel! We have seen some of these believers strike out to minister on another day we cannot be there…!  This has filled our hearts with joy and given us reason to pray with even more intensity for the Lord of the harvest to send MORE!  Yes, there are still pockets of time during the week that there is no one pleading for the lives of the unborn! 🙁 Will you continue to lift this great need up to the Savior?  Would you consider coming to see this need for yourself?

mission field inside a mission field

We continue to plead, preach the Gospel, and offer hope and resources to those who come for abortions every Wednesday and Saturday, AS WELL AS TO those who NOW come in their pink and proud arrogance to stand right next to us in celebration of the murder of the innocent. It has become our mission field inside our mission field.  We are shoulder to shoulder with the death culture every Saturday—they wave in cars and escort girls to the door—and our hearts break over their rebellion toward our good and gracious God!  As hard as it has become we rejoice as we have an opportunity to reach them for Christ in a way we never could through social media!  We pray for them as we stand and we quietly speak the gospel to them. They hear the preaching loud and clear, as well.  Please pray for the Lord to work mightily in their hearts—please pray for breaches to be exposed!

This summer we were asked to make short videos regarding our life ministry that could be shown daily at a local VBS.  Here is a link to each one for those who are interested.  We pray that God will use them to awaken believers to the great need in our country to the “fields ripe unto harvest” outside of the abortion clinics.
 
Please view them and use them in any way you can.  It is NOT about our family’s specific ministry as it is about the great need.  We have seen the Lord work mightily through so many Christians who have just become obedient in this one area–to open their mouths for the dumb and plead the cause of all that are being drawn away to death!  We desire to see the Church of Christ rise up in their communities and be faithful to their unborn neighbors!
 
 
 
 

July Prayer Letter

a special announcement

Because I combined 2 months of prayer and praise in our last letter a LOT has happened since I wrote you! We were so excited to find out in May that we are having another baby!  This very special delivery will take place, Lord willing, in January of 2016!  A great way to start a band new year!  I have had a lot of sickness to battle this last month and would appreciate your prayers as I walk through this pregnancy. We are amazed at God’s goodness in the gifts of our children! Random silly side note: craving green olives like crazy, olives with bleu cheese!

summer in full swing

We have now officially been to Michigan as a family!  A huge thanks to all of you who prayed in preparation for the ministry and while we were away!  God did move mightily as the preaching and teaching of His word went forth!  We were so blessed by our host church and their faithful AND EXUBERANT witness for Christ in the community which God has placed them!  It was great to watch the kids from the YMCA camp pile into the pews each morning and sit attentively to Kevan’s creation presentations!  And we REJOICED as children responded to the gospel each day!  We saw many saved…and are so grateful that Michiana Christian Embassy is committed to disciple these precious children if/when the opportunity arises!  Please pray for these children!

Seems like even before we were home Kevan was switching gears mentally to all the finishing prep needing to be completed for the rest of this month and another camp the first week of August!  On Saturday, July 11th, he will be preaching to the men staying at the City Union Mission in the morning and then teaching kids in the afternoon at a Bike Rodeo hosted by a local church!

We leave for a week-long High School camp on August 2nd!  Kevan will be teaching a total of 10 hour-long sessions on Creation vs Evolution and would greatly appreciate your prayers!  He is still working on final touches as he prepares a syllabus (complete with study notes and resources papers) that will be put into a book for the teens, as well as prayerfully constructing each presentation with what God would have him share!!!!!  Some of the subjects he will be covering are: The Dangerous Waters of Evolution, So Called Science, Dinosaurs and Man, The Kind Question, Apologetics, Living Fossils, Icons of Evolution, etc.!

front line of life

We continue to stand at the entrance of Planned Parenthood twice a week and are grateful for your prayers as we engage in this ministry.  The Lord continues to slowly increase the number who are coming to stand—but please pray that more be awakened to this need in our city.  There are many hours when there is no witness for Christ on the sidewalk.  We are aware of a couple saves during these last 2 months and rejoice! One specific morning Kevan and I counted 23 abortion clients, and that was just in the morning hours!  That day we handed out more literature than ever in one setting and 3 separate cars stopped at the entrance to talk with us.  This can be both encouraging and heartbreaking at the same time.  When you begin to hear a woman’s story, look at her in the eyes, and find out the age of her pre-born child the burden you hold as you stand on the sidewalk gets heavier and heavier. L So many packets handed out, so many words of truth and hope spoken, and yet it all can seem ineffective. That is when Kevan reminds me, “Car windows are coming down, Deana! Windows come down before the walls do!” And I am rallied in my spirit and grateful for every breach that is found in the enemy’s fortification.  This last month I have not been able to go with Kevan as much due to this pregnancy.  Last Wednesday as he preached He sensed the Lord doing mighty things.  As we call out to women, or Kevan preaches, many are hearing God’s word proclaimed!  Oh, that man would choose to fear the Lord and flee wickedness!

May June Prayer Letter

what has happened

This last month was filled with some wonderful events and we saw the Lord answer many prayers as we ministered to individuals, children, women, churches, and teens!  I (Deana) was royally pampered when invited to share at a ladie’s retreat in Sharon Springs, KS, at a delightful bed and breakfast!  I was given the theme Beautifully Rooted and was amazingly encouraged and exhorted by my own study to prepare! Kevan taught on many subjects throughout this last month covering the topics of Joy, Loyalty, what it means to Follow the Heart of our King, Creation to Christ and what a Christian’s life should look like after salvation, and the laws of science according to Scripture! J  We are so grateful you pray for the requests we lay out each month!

what is to come

We have 2 different week long camps we are preparing to teach in the next month.  We leave for CYIA (Christian Youth In Action—a training for teens to learn how to teach the gospel to children held in Newton, KS) on May 30th. We then will leave for Michigan on June 20th, where a church has partnered with their local YMCA to bring a week-long camp on Creation for mostly unchurched kids in the community!  Please pray for us as we wrap up needed prep and props!  It is a huge blessing that we can travel together as a family—it is so much fun to meet other believers as we go and to see places we have never been to before!  Please pray that the High School students at CYIA will do well and look to the Lord for their help as it is very intensive (we are with them for the 1st week of a 2 week course).  Please pray that many would be drawn to salvation through the camp in Michigan!

happy mothers

Yes, that is what you have when women choose to keep their babies!  I (Deana) got a “Happy Mother’s Day” text early last Sunday morning and I almost squealed out loud during church.  This dear girl chose life for her baby while leaving an abortion clinic last year on May 7th.  I had the privilege of texting her that same message just days after her courageous choice.  And this year she beat me to it!  To God be the glory, great things He has done!

And another happy mother is getting married!  We were beyond thrilled to get their “announcement” text a couple weeks ago.  We know, and statistics prove, that had this couple (both 18) aborted their 12 week preborn boy last summer their life would look much different.  We are so grateful that they have kept the door wide open for a relationship with us.  We love them! Please pray that they will come to know Christ as their Savior!

lizzette and jose

And we were so grateful to be asked to speak at a church located just 16 minutes from Planned Parenthood and the Center for Women’s Health on Mother’s Day.  A most fitting holiday to address this most neglected mission field!  Our plea on Sunday was for Intercessors, both in the prayer closet and on the sidewalk!  Oh, that more would Amad Perets for the unborn!

April Prayer Letter

HE IS RISEN!  HE IS RISEN, INDEED!

 we are so blessed to serve a risen Savior! we hope you enjoyed a weekend of thanksgiving and celebration in remembering that empty tomb and the promised resurrection every believer in Christ can also anticipate!!!!!!
 
thank you for your love and intercession for our family, and for taking the time to read our latest update for prayer and praise!  we do pray for you!  let us know how we can do so specifically!

sowing seeds

We rejoice in the seed that was sown this last month and thank you for joining us in praying that the Lord would be glorified in each scheduled event!  March was filled with chapel messages at several different Christian Schools and at a local evangelistic Kid’s Club, time pleading for the unborn and preaching the gospel outside of the Planned Parenthood, provoking the public at the busy intersection of College and Roe in Overland Park on the subject of abortion in our City and what God has to say about LIFE, bible studies, and a weekend Creation Seminar out of town.  Although we did not see souls saved, we are confident that they heard truth—please pray that the seed sown would take root and produce a harvest!  We know of a couple self-acclaimed “Atheists” and evolutionists that were in attendance at the revival meetings on Creation—please pray that they will agree with God and with what they already know to be true!  Kevan spent some time in each session shooting down the idea that an “atheist” has any ground for intellectual dialogue on the subject.  Every “atheist” argument assumes that God exists.  I greatly appreciate my husband’s kindness when presenting truth—but never watering it down!

on becoming one

Our little man turned one on April 1st! We have had such a fun year with Edward and continue to praise the Lord for the gift of his life!  He spent his birthday morning outside of Planned Parenthood with the rest of us—we used the events of his birthday and April Fool’s Day as a springboard for sharing truth with those going in to have abortions. Having our children on the sidewalk with us is so powerful—they are a testimony of blessing! Every woman can have the JOY that comes with pregnancy, no matter her situation.

april’s happenings

Our calendar this month is mostly black!  What a blessing to have scribbles in most of the squares!  Having a month full of ministry and meetings (in prep for ministry this summer) means we must be intentional regarding family time and time in the Word though!  Would you please pray that we would not become cumbered down with the “doing of the work” that we are not sensitive to the Spirit’s voice and eager to go where He leads in each ministry event! Besides our normal weekend schedule at the Planned Parenthood or Intersection in between the two abortion mills, 3 out of the 4 weekends this month are filled with several other ministry events.  Some of this month includes—all day teaching at a CEF Spectacular on “Science and the Law”, Christian School chapel messages (here and out of town), presenting the need for more laborers in the specific field of the abortion mills at a local church, ministry on the sidewalk at Planned Parenthood, and a Ladies’ Retreat Deana will be speaking at in a quaint Bed and Breakfast out of town.  Thank you so much for partnering with our family in prayer.  We often feel quite inadequate and find ourselves on our faces before the Lord seeking His mighty enabling!  How exciting it is to watch Him answer those prayers and make us vessels fit for His use!  He is so good!!!

March Prayer Letter

remember Thy Creator

Kevan is scheduled to lead a weekend of Revival Meetings on a Creation theme in Ellis, KS the last weekend of March!  We will travel down together as a family and ask you to pray for the Lord to be glorified in every aspect of our time away.  The entire community will be invited to this event.  Please pray that Lord would draw men and women, boys and girls, to a saving faith in Christ and that they will stand on the sure foundation of the plain teaching of Scripture!

“pray therefore the Lord of the harvest”

A huge thanks to those of you who have been praying for us as we approach churches with the request that they would take a day to intercede for more laborers for the specific harvest of the last 2 remaining abortion mills in Kansas City.  We are excited to know of 3 congregations who have whole-heartedly committed to “stand in the gap” on specific days, and several other churches planning to have us come and present the need for prayer in order to inform their members.  We hope that very soon every day is covered in prayer—asking the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers into the harvest.  We desire that EVERY DAY the sidewalks would be covered with those who are pleading for the unborn and offering the hope of the gospel to all who enter!  Most days the sidewalks are empty. Please pray as we begin to make more contacts!  We feel strongly that God would have us pursue as many churches as He directs. If you are in this area and would like to give us your church information and those we should contact, please let us know!  This is not to promote our ministry in any way, to ask for financial aid, or to ask your church to engage in another “program”…the purpose is solely to invite believers to intercede!

another save

We were thrilled to witness a mother choose life for her precious unborn baby last Saturday.  We know God is in the saving business and are aware of women who have changed their minds and fled Planned Parenthood in these last few months, but this was the first to happen on our watch!  Although we have seen a number of turn-arounds, we have not had a confirmed save last July.  Please pray this mother would stay resolved to carry and that she would come to saving faith in Christ alone!   Please pray for MORE babies!

on the home front

Our children are our first and highest ministry—and we feel quite honored to be their parents! Y We desire to see them come to know Christ as their Savior at a young age, and pray to this end.  Tirzah is blossoming in so many ways—it is fun to carry on actual conversations 🙂 and see her grasp ahold of God’s word as we begin to memorize passages together as a family!  She loves to sing, to dance with her Da, to read, to play with her doll house, and to explore outside!  Edward will be a year old in a few short weeks!  Can it really be true?  He is such a cuddle baby, but very strong in both physical strength and will!  Seems like we have 2 very determined children!  🙂

Kevan is very busy working hard to provide for his family.  He is most faithful in every way possible and loved by each of us!  Our favorite part of everyday is his homecoming each evening!  I love keeping house and being secretary for all the little details our ministry incurs.  We purpose to engage the front lines God has called us to hold with our children by our sides whenever it is possible!  Besides preparing for and teaching Sunday School, Bible studies, and School chapels, or Kevan preaching in churches, we have committed to stand outside of Planned Parenthood every Wednesday and every other Saturday morning.  The other Saturdays we have chosen to stand in between both of the mills at the intersection of College and Roe to hold sings and preach (with amplification) to those stopped at the traffic light—we do this to provoke the public and awaken them to what is happening in their own backyard!  Thank you for praying AND supporting us in so many ways!!!!

February Prayer Letter

plans and praises

Thank you for remembering us in prayer last month.  The Lord gave grace as we did that which was set before us!  The next few months have several specific events scheduled and we ask you to pray as we prepare our hearts for teaching and spend time in study.  This season of life is full to the brim with our primary ministry of raising a family and working to provide for that family 🙂 so we ask you to pray as we seek the time needed to prepare for the other ministry doors the Lord is widely opening!  Kevan will be teaching a Creation Seminar and Deana will be speaking at a ladies retreat, both out of town, in March and April.  Next month is filling up and so we know that using February to engage in major preparation is vital!

We continue to stand bi-weekly for Life and the Gospel and rejoice as we have more joining us on a regular basis!  The Lord is answering our prayers—just last Wednesday there were 8 who stood to proclaim truth to those entering! With joyful hearts we praise God for those who have been coming specifically to learn from standing with us and have begun to stand on their own. It is wonderful to know that on days we cannot be there, a representative of King Jesus is filling that gap!  This is a DIRECT answer to prayer! And it is motivation to keep praying! The sidewalks are far from filled, even if they are more filled than last month! Remember that in Overland Park, The “Murder of Children” is open for business every week day, all day long, and on Saturdays from 7-noon.

pray therefore the Lord of the harvest

Last month we asked you to join us in praying that churches in this area would choose a day to begin interceding for more laborers to come and bring the gospel to the mission field of the abortion clinics!  As we began to “knock on doors” and talk with Pastors and Elders we felt the Lord’s presence in urging us forward.  We are grateful for those who have responded positively.  Please pray for us as we have scheduled meetings with some of these men in order to discuss our desire and give them valuable resources. Please pray as we begin to make more contacts!  We feel strongly that God would have us pursue as many churches as He directs, pray that we will have wisdom and will swiftly obey His lead! As we stated before, we desire EVERY DAY covered in praying that the sidewalks of Planned Parenthood and the Center for Women’s Health would be covered EVERY DAY with believers!  If you are in this area and would like to give us your church information and those we should contact, please let us know!!!!

happy shower for  a life saved

We were thrilled to have mama “L” into our home in order to spoil her and her sweet baby Brayden with food and gifts galore!  A huge thanks to all of you who gave presents and gift cards!  The Lord’s presence was such a part of that morning!  Please pray that “L” and her family would be saved.  Deana clearly presented the need and the gospel while this dear Mama attentively listened.  It is the Lord who convicts and draws men to repentance!

Anniversary of Legalized Death in America

collage

Today marks the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade! Over 55 million babies legally slaughtered in our nation in 42 years! Over 64,000 more have been slain just since the beginning of 2015! And today that number will expand as woman are already lining up to pay a man to kill their unborn treasure at 2 remaining abortion mills in Overland Park, Ks. (Overland Park is a major child-sacrifice hub for both Kansas and Missouri!) They are lining up all over our great nation—3,000 more will die today, and then 3,000 more will die tomorrow! It doesn’t stop!

Would you please consider opening YOUR mouth for the innocent being ripped apart inside their mother’s womb? Start now in your home, take the conversation to work, mention it among your friends, challenge a stranger, PLEASE go to the sidewalk of your local mill…speak out! It is a mandatory ministry. It is not a comfortable ministry but it is a most holy and sacred cause. It is a cause very close to the heart of our God! He says to rescue those who are being drawn unto death (Proverbs 24:11). This issue is not only extremely obvious as to its reality, it has become extremely obvious that it is NOT being talked about in many American churches!

When we are standing at the gates of death we often tell the public driving by or going in that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal. One man responded with: “how dare you compare abortion to Hitler”. He was right…there is nothing to compare. To compare abortion to Hitler would be to insult Hitler. We have far exceeded his numbers!
