Servants of God in Austin 
Renovation Ministries Updates

June 2, 2003


God's power through ordinary people closed an Austin, Texas abortion clinic on May 30, 2003 and led abortionist Peter Kropf to permanently leave the business. Kropf, who quit in February while new owner Amy Miller unsuccessfully struggled to keep the business open, has since told pro-life activists much useful information about the abortion industry. Meanwhile, across town in Austin, on March 13th abortionist Mr. Heiki Saarikoski quit at the "Repro" clinic and though he was replaced by a New Mexico abortionist, he permanently left the industry also.

Kropf, the former owner of the Austin OB/GYN clinic, told pro-lifers he'd never been happier since he left the business. Austin activist Chris Danze, a leader of the witnesses faithfully proclaiming truth every Friday and Saturday at the clinic, and dentist Dr. Don Hartsfield have both been telling him of the Christian faith and he's listening.

At Austin's Repro clinic, on May 28th medical director and longtime abortionist Fred Hansen announced his retirement and also that he's shredded all records of his files for the last 38 years. But as veteran activist Don Stubblefield pointed out, Fred's sins are yet inscribed with an iron stylus in God's judgment book we read about in Revelation 20. Hansen also said that no one could be found locally to replace him, proving once again that pro-life pressure on clinics continues the inherent stigma with abortionists -- real doctors don't want to kill children, and those who hide in the darkness of sin shun exposure!

What's God's way of saving children at clinics? Using sermons and resolutions conveniently left behind in churches? No, because they're never allowed to go where sin is. But ordinary people doing simple things -- in Jesus' power -- save children, and when they do, Satan's power collapses. Christians, use the truth! Zech. 8:16 tells us, "These are the things which you should do: speak the truth to one another; judge with truth and judgment for peace in your gates."

At Austin's Repro clinic, as of May the lives of 38 children have been saved since October 15th because ordinary people are doing simple things by the power of Jesus. Pray for Jim, Diane, Don, Ryan, Elijah, Mike, Ina, Mark, Jesse, and others as a witness continues there five days a week.

May 28th 2003 report - interesting things are happening...

On the heels of last week's pro-life bills in Texas becoming law, it now looks certain that the Miller's abortion clinic, the one on Anderson Mill Rd. here in Austin, is closing with new tenant/clinic owner Amy Miller unable to purchase it and moving out. As of today it appears no abortions are being committed there and Amy is referring her business to another clinic until she reorganizes.

And this morning at Repro, longtime abortionist and Repro medical director Fred Hansen came out to tell me he's retiring as of this week. His replacement, whom he wouldn't name but he said is from out of town, will begin moving in tomorrow and Friday so no abortions will be done at Repro for the next two days. Fred also told me he'd taken all medical files to a paper shredding company to destroy his records for the last 38 years. Very wise just in case there's future lawsuits.

Three abortionists have now quit for various reasons in Austin in the last three months. Neither Miller's nor Repro was able to get local doctors to replace them but have had to go out of state. Did sermons and pro-life resolutions quietly hidden in churches do it? No, more than anything else, pro-life activism at both Miller's and Repro. One clinic down, three to go!

Today 13 people stopped to take info from sidewalk counseling. The waterline construction noise was very loud at times. No saves or turnaways.

This coming Saturday promises to be a heavy business day for Repro. Please come and join us. Customers will begin entering at 7: 00 a.m and we need many people there then. If you have ever thought of taking a stand, what are you waiting for, a better time? Now, more than ever, it's time to keep up the pressure!

May 22, 2003 report... a triple yolker

Today I had as much trouble from the alledged Christians as from the pagans while sidewalk counseling at Austin's Repro abortion clinic. But Jesus saved the lives of three, yes, three defenseless ones.

Gabriela came in by herself and stopped to listen and take info. As I stood in front of, yes, one of those gruesome posters showing an aborted child again, and told her of abortion's dangers and that God wanted the best for her, tears began to flow. She came out later saying she found she had twins, had originally come to abort, and shook my hand
to thank me.

As I was packing up to leave, a man identifying himself as homosexual and in a hurry to make a credit union deposit, came by to ask the moronic question, do you work with others to help children? as if we were in a total vacuum, ignorant of other ministries. I wish I had a dollar for each time I've heard this one. Yes, we work with others and he seem relieved. Rather curiously, he opposes abortion. And then chief abortionist Fred came out to chat for a moment, apparently not knowing of the waterline construction on Repro's street.

Truly, ministry comes to you at abortion clinics. A record 13 people stopped to take info today. It's been a long time, if ever, that I've seen three saves in one day. And Johnny Richards, who has a very severe speech impediment and usually rides a bike, came over to rejoice with me on the news of the saves as he often does. Ps. 34: 2 -- "My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; the humble shall hear it and rejoice." That's now 38 saves since September. We press on.

Austin's "Repro" mill is now covered five days a week.

The Lord continues to bless the efforts of truth bearers in Austin, Texas. Beginning in the first week in October, Austin's "Repro" mill is now covered five days a week. Please pray for such pro-lifers as Don, Ryan, Eli, Mike, John, Diane, Jim, Ken, Chris, Dennis, and Ricky. In October we had three saves and three turnaways. On November 9th we hope to have a member of the Austin clergy visit so please pray that he will get a vision of what God wants to do -- close clinics!

One save was particularly easy... a Hispanic woman drove in alone one weekday and the first thing she said upon rolling down her car window was,"I really don't want to do it. Do you think I should do it?" You can imagine what the sidewalk counselor told her, and he told her that God didn't want her to do it either. She soon, without ever getting out of her car, turned around in the clinic parking lot and headed for a nearby crisis pregnancy center. Literally, a dog with a note in his mouth could have done the same job. Some customers just want someone to tell them the truth and to encourage them.

If you're a woman in the Austin, Texas area and can do a simple thing like help another woman like this, we need you! Please log onto our website, www.renovationministries.org or call 1-512- 556-4434 (Lampasas) and leave a message.

On November 12th our live community cable TV show,"Tell the Truth" resumes and we anticipate momentum beginning that will bring more people out to stand for the most defenseless of our neighbors. Austin viewers, check out the show on cable channel 10 on Tuesdays at 6: 00 p.m.

Save The Baby Humans Foundation--Pregnancy Help

Friday Sept 20, 2002

A lady named Carolina changed her mind about having an abortion. Hopefully, she will call me and I can find out more on how to help her. She said that she was going to pay $25 to get an ultrasound and if her baby's heart was beating, she would not have an abortion. I gave her the packet of literature with a card with my name and phone number as she was driving in. Then I found an American Life League booklet called "My Secret Life-My Secret Death" I gave that to her as she was walking from her car into the mill.

We were going to leave at a certain time, but John said "Let's stay a few more minutes. So we did and she came out ( about an hour after she went in).

Carolina said that she found out she was 9 weeks pregnant, not 5 weeks as she had thought. She was crying, tears streaming down her face, as she said " I couldn't go through with it. I was reading this booklet. If you people hadn't been here, I probably would have gone through with it."

We gave her a package with baby booties, baby lotion, other baby items and a parenting magazine. Hopefully, she will call me and we can follow up with any assistance she needs. from Diane Wooley.

There were two confirmed saves, 1 probable, at least two turnaways, and at least 23 others stopping to take info at Austin's Repro clinic in September. Several are standing firm for God's truth in Austin, such as long-time activists George and Diane Wooley, Don Stubblefield, Mike, Don, Ricky, Ken, Midge, Pablo, and a couple of others. Please pray for these truth bearers and that more women would join us in Austin. Right now we need a mature Christian woman to join us at Repro on Saturdays as a sidcewalk counselor. Can you say yes to Jesus and help us do simple things that can save the very life of a helpless unborn child? We are now covering Repro three days a week now.

Miracles in Austin

The Lord moved this last Saturday in Austin to bring out over 70 adults and children to our Church at the Gates of Hell worship service in front of the Repro clinic. The clinic didn't do much business that day.

The Lord sent three men by to talk to us and we got into serious discussions about the gospel with them. One of them, Joe, who's having marital problems, gave us his phone number and I'm going to follow up.

After a lot of frustrating work I've got my website 95% ready and online. It will be the foundation for the full-time street preaching, pro-life, and cable access TV show ministry I began in July to be centered in Austin. You can look at it at: Renovation Ministries It lacks a few graphics and photos which I'll have developed and uploaded in about two weeks.

We saw one Hispanic couple choose life today at Austin's Repro mill after two pro-lifers preached. Plus, three other customers, while not choosing life, took info from long-time Austin activist Don Stubblefield. People got a lot of truth today from the handouts, the big Malachi poster, and the preaching. With the save last Saturday, July 13th, that's two known saves for the month so far.

We're gearing up for the Church at the Gates Of Hell worship service in front of the Repro mill in Austin on Saturday morning, August 24th at 7:30 a.m. There will be preaching, praise, and worship.

An investigation has revealed that the Repro mill receives $263,596 annually in a subsidy coming from sales tax revenue from the city of Austin according to the Travis County Health and Human Services Department. Austin area believers in Jesus Christ, do you want your city sales taxes to keep killing defenseless unborn?

If you live in the greater Austin area and want to stand for the Lord Jesus Christ and life, come join us! And there's likely someone who'd like to come with you! Wouldn't it be great that if so many people came out to worship our Creator that the mill had to close that day? For more info:
