Encouraging responses at James Madison University
“Thank you for being here.” On the morning of Day 2 at JMU, Mick Hunt read from Ephesians 6, to encourage the team to “put on the full armor of God” in preparation for another day at JMU. Their discussion was interrupted by a female student who approached the group.
She said, “Thank you for being here. Christians really need to see this. I know this is a spiritual battle. Can I pray for you?” Nicole and Jonathan approached her and thanked her for her timely encouragement. They held hands while she prayed for God’s blessing on our team and for the students who would see images, asking God to move their hearts.
Breast cancer link. One of our GAP signs presents the connection between abortion and breast cancer. The hard-core pro-aborts dispute this, but there is plenty of statistical evidence to suggest that abortion increases the probability of breast cancer from the ambient 10% to about 13 or 14% (an increase of 30 or 40 percent). This is not a trivial increase; it likely results in 10,000 fatalities per year (source).
As two female students looked at the sign depicting this link, Jane began to explain the cellular changes in breast tissue that begin to happen when a woman becomes pregnant. One of them interrupted, “I am a biology major and I see where you are going with that. That’s the most convincing argument right there for not having abortions! You need to be telling women this!” Jane laughed and said, “We’re doing our very best, please help us!”
