It was another Sunday afternoon when a young couple approached our Bible table at the beach. They were looking over our free Bibles and books when the young woman noticed the tiny metal baby feet pinned to our tablecloth.
I explained, “These little feet are the exact size and shape of a baby’s feet in the mother’s womb, 10 weeks after conception. This is also a common age for a baby to be aborted—at just 2 ½ months.
She immediately backed away, put her hands to her face and broke into tears! Her boyfriend went to console her. Then he returned and explained privately, “My girlfriend is 10 weeks pregnant. We came to the beach to discuss an abortion.”
There were two men working at our table. They took the young man aside and talked with him for over a half-hour. Meanwhile, two of us women talked with his girlfriend. We learned they’d been feeling pressured to have an abortion, but neither was comfortable with it.
That afternoon they both decided to give their lives to Christ—right on the beach promenade! We prayed with them and they agreed to start coming to a home group Bible study with one of the couples at our table. The older couple became mentors to the young couple, who are now married with a new baby.
“Thank You Lord for putting us in the right place at the right time for that precious young family.”
