Some prayer requests
Dear praying family and friends, Dec. 12, 2006
Holiness unto the Lord!
Before I leave Wednesday on another road trip, there are details to attend to and stuff to pack. My sons, David and Jimmy, are excited to be coming along. Can I please count on you to pray over some items?
1. Friday, Dec. 15, we will join others for a prophetic rebuke in front of Wal-Marts' national headquarters in Arkansas. http://www.savewalmart.com/
2. Sunday, Dec. 17, I'll be ministering in a church in Tennessee.
3. Monday, Dec. 18, we'll be ministering on the streets in front of the last facility in Mississippi that murders preborn babies.
4. Tuesday, Dec. 19, is my criminal trial for "failure to obey" a police officer in Jackson, Mississippi.
5. I've just nailed down the dates for our next missionary trip to China(upcoming).
6. The Michigan Legislature closes for the year on Thursday night. I've talked to my Representative and some others who, so far, are preventing a bill from coming to the House Floor requiring all pre-teen girls to get vaccinated against HPV. (Ed. note-this bill was passed in the Michigan House.)
7. I testified to the agriculture committee of the Michigan Senate last Thursday in opposition to the Michigan Dept. of Ag. criminalizing farmers who don't "volunteer" to get their animals microchipped by next March. This "mark of the beast" for beasts is part of the National Animal Identification System and would destroy what little property rights farmers have left. I'll be helping to draft or promote legislation to stop this evil edict.
8. The politicians are launching a very aggressive campaign to bring a casino to Bay City. We need to organize and oppose this.
9. I'm invited to speak at a pro-life forum in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 22, 2007. Representatives from various states will be meeting who are also working on personhood amendments. I need to decide and let them know within a few days if I can go or not.
10. If court goes well, the boys and I should be home in a week. Please intercede for Trish and the girls staying home. Please intercede for our protection and provision while driving a couple of thousand miles. If you think of our family during the next week, please pray for us.
I'll try to check my e-mails, but anyone wanting to reach me can call my cel. phone: 989-859-4482. Thank you. I am shouting GLORY all the way!

Michigan pro-life missionary Cal Zastrow convicted in Mississippi for "failure to obey a police officer."
Holiness unto the Lord! By being able to preach Christ and declare the humanity of preborn children in court, I won! I proclaimed the vision of the State of Mississippi going from the worst civil rights state to the best by being the first state to protect the civil rights of preborn children. I feel that I won the approval of Jesus and the babies. In Pearl, Mississippi, Judge John Shirley didn't see it that way and found me guilty on Nov. 7th of "failure to obey a police officer" and sentenced me to a fine of $250. and four months in jail. Ken Scott was tried and convicted also. He got personal in his statement before sentencing and warned the judge to flee from the wrath of God upon those who are accomplices to the murder of children and those who deny justice. We have appealed the verdicts to the next higher court and our jail sentences are suspended (for now). The attornies from the American Family Association Center for Law and Public Policy did a great job, but the verdict was decided before we ever walked into the courtroom.
The judge didn't like the shirt with a picture of the murdered baby, Malachi, on it. He didn't like it when one of our supporters was praying silently but slightly lifting his hand. He got mad when he saw my thirteen-year-old daughter, Corrie, recording the trial. He even ordered her up in front of the bench and took the camera from her. He sternly barked that the supreme court ruled that no cameras were allowed. And, he didn't like it after the trial when one of our supporters with a laptop respectfully tried to show him the court ruling that cameras were permitted. (He probably didn't like our northern accents, but I don't know for sure.)
Last July, we were arrested for holding pro-life signs alongside a public road during the Operation Rescue National/Operation Save America event. The eight-day event last summer focused on lifting up Jesus and helping local Christians in their efforts to close the last baby-killing "abortion clinic" in the entire state.
The day before I was arrested in Pearl, I was arrested (with others) in the City of Jackson for holding a pro-life sign alongside a public street.
The charge was "failure to obey a police officer." I was ticketed and released. Several of us have trials in Jackson on Dec. 19. I plan to go back. The abortionist at the last death pit in Mississippi, Dr. Booker, recently tried to drive his car over two pro-lifers in Jackson. His criminal trial is Dec. 18. Will the Church show up?
After our trial in Pearl, we stood with the local pro-life Christians outside of the Jackson death center. It was amazing how grand of a stir just a handful of activists and some street preachers could make for a couple of days. There is tremendous spiritual warfare taking place there.
The neighboring businesses are very angry. The police are sick of us. The abortionists hate us. The babies need us, so let's keep the pressure up!
Let's keep singing, praying, preaching, pamphleting, and picketing outside of this last den of slaughter in all of Mississippi.
One of the neighboring businessmen is filing "disorderly conduct" charges against all of us. He did this after assault charges were filed against him when he brazenly sprayed pro-lifer Bill Ashleywith the water hose and turned the sprinkler on him. At least the police saw the sprinkler aimed upon Bill as it also watered the sidewalk and the street. Do you remember what happened last July when the Jackson police did nothing while watching pro-abortion anarchists jumping on a car witha pro-lifer inside while they smashed his car and windshield with a pipe? The police wouldn't arrest them or even demand their names in order to file a report, even after the anarchists threatened to kill the pro-lifer in his car. The police wanted to arrest and jail us last week for not producing government issued identification when this neighbor accused "all" of us of disorderly conduct. Being as I had two of my children with me, I didn't risk arrest but only gave them my name and address. No, I didn't produce id. for them or give them my date of birth.
Let's stop pondering about election losses and take the Gospel to the streets. Let's proclaim with our lives and our liberty that the murdering of preborn children must stop, NOW!
I am shouting GLORY all the way!
