Pastor Ricky Gordon and I got home late last night from Reserve, NM. The Abortion Awareness meeting was a huge success! Great work by Cathy Donovan and all the Folks at the First Baptist Church in Reserve! Powerful people of God!!! Laura Rosecrans of the Hub of NM gave an awesome presentation as did Lynnette Carter of Living Hope Women’s Center in Show Low, Arizona! Praise God! Great to see all my friends in Reserve! Love you all!!
I was blessed to share a bit on what has happened and is happening at the New Mexico State Capital regarding abortion and the unity that is taking place in the Body of Christ to fight for the lives of God’s babies.
My prayer is that all Churches will stand in the gap for God’s Babies!
Pictured at top is Laura Rosecrans of the HUB of NM on the left with Cathy Donovan who organized this awesome event at her home Church The Reserve First Baptist Church. Pictured below with Cathy is Lynnette Carter of Living Hope Women’s Center in Show Low, Arizona.
Laura Rosecrans “Sixty-five percent of the women who will have an abortion this week were in church yesterday. Evangelical and Catholic women will pay Planned Parenthood $100 million this year for abortions.”
Both Laura and Lynnette shared their moving testimony on having gone through an abortion and abuse. If you would like them to speak at your Church, just email me and I will hook you up with these strong women of God!
The Reserve Community showed up yesterday! I was thinking before I went to bed that Catron County has got to be one of the strongest Christian Counties in New Mexico!
If we took a ranking of the top Christian Counties in New Mexico…where would your County stand?
Please visit Catron County soon, beautiful people of God, beautiful scenery! God’s Country!
The Counties website has this slogan on it, “The Best Kept Secret in New Mexico” I am always sadden by the number of people IN NEW MEXICO who do not know where Reserve is located!
I will never forget…about 5 or 6 years ago, after I preached at a Church in Albuquerque a man came up to me and said, “I liked most of your sermon, but why did you preach so much on abortion?”
So many Christians do not want to face the facts that we continue to kill God’s babies! We, the people of God, must stand in the gap for God! We must not be silent!
Mercy Alarid of Passion Church in Albuquerque wrote a post for FGGAM, “Winds of Change'” and listed what we all need to do……
- Pray. Ask the Lord what part you can play in this fight for life and when He answers, be obedient to his orders.
- Inform yourself on the issues of life and how they affect our state. Use your voice to speak for the unborn and rally others to do the same.
- Vote, not for a party, but for life. When the next elections come around, ask candidates the hard questions and vote your biblical values.
- Run for office if the Lord calls you to the halls of government.
- Be pro-life in every sense of the word. Get involved in the foster system and help the thousands of fatherless and motherless children who need our support and godly influence. There are many options available for volunteers, from providing respite for foster parents to actually becoming foster parents ourselves. Pray about adopting and go through the process if the Lord leads you down that road.
We have two years until the next election. Let’s seize the days and do what we do best–effect change.
God Bless you, Mercy Alarid

Crying eyes, tears of sadness, in need of a warm embrace.
Heartache, broken dreams, unfulfilled promise and vows,
Never to return. A broken woman, a strong courageous woman,
A woman of Destiny.
Man cannot ruin me, for I belong to my creator, Jesus lover of my soul.
The storm blows, I feel the darkness trying to overtake me.
The web, the snare that the enemy of my soul has spun.
The glory, the light, Jesus the lifter of my head-you came and rescued me.
I see the sun starting thru although the clouds still seem dark and gray.
I see the light now it’s shining dimly again. Destiny awaits.
Jesus come, walk with me day by day, hand in hand
Moment by moment, one day, one step at a time.
Jesus come, Jesus come, Jesus where from here?
Jesus no asking you why.
Prayer: Lord I pray for every broken woman across this globe today. I pray your word in Isaiah 61. 1.The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn, 3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” 4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities,
The desolations of many generations. 5 Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the foreigner Shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
6 But you shall be named the priests of the Lord, they shall call you the servants of our God. You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory you shall boast.
7 Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion.
Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs. 8 “For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their work in truth, And will make with them an everlasting covenant. 9 Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles,
And their offspring among the people. All who see them shall acknowledge them,
That they are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.” 10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11 For as the earth brings forth its bud,
As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
Thank you Lord you will make every crooked way straight. I pray hope into every broken life. I pray you draw the readers today, and that this would be a word in season for them. When they look in the mirror today oh God I pray they will see BEAUTIFUL, for that’s how you created them. They were created in your image and you are waiting for them to ask you to make them whole again. Your answer is the same for every woman across this globe, yes and amen. Let it be so. We give you thanks. Destiny awaits.
