A Good News Story: Pam Didn’t Abort Her Baby Boy

I saw the following story in the Friday Daily Brief of the Capitol Hill Prayer Partners.



A woman named Pam . . . knows the pain of considering abortion.

More than 24 years ago, she and her husband Bob were serving as missionaries to the Philippines and praying for a fifth child. Pam contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in contaminated food or drink. She went into a coma and was treated with strong antibiotics before they discovered she was pregnant.

Doctors urged her to abort the baby for her own safety and told her that the medicines had caused irreversible damage to her baby. She refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted. Pam said the doctors didn't think of it as a life, they thought of it as a mass of fetal tissue.
While pregnant, Pam nearly lost their baby four times but refused to consider abortion. She recalled making a pledge to God with her husband: If you will give us a son, we'll name him Timothy and we'll make him a preacher.

Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and eventually gave birth to a healthy baby boy August 14, 1987. Pam's youngest son is indeed a preacher. He preaches in prisons, makes hospital visits, and serves with his father's ministry in the Philippines. He also plays football. Pam's son is Tim Tebow.
The University of Florida's star quarterback became the first sophomore in history to win college football's highest award, the Heisman Trophy. His current role as quarterback of the Denver Broncos has provided an incredible platform for Christian witness. As a result, he is being called The Mile-High Messiah.

Tim's notoriety and the family's inspiring story have given Pam numerous opportunities to speak on behalf of women's centers across the country. Pam Tebow believes that every little baby you save matters.

May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always!
Breaking News!

The Lord is now using this young Denver Broncos quarterback to draw attention to Himself!!

In last week's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tebow -- who is known for his display of JOHN 3:16 when he plays, and who BOWS TO THE LORD during each game -- threw the winning pass in overtime of 316 yards! 316 -- there's that number, again!
The NFL fans across the nation went crazy! Suddenly, everyone went to Google and typed in: JOHN 3:16! What was this Bible verse that Tebow wears? And what does it say??
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
As the sportscasters continued to analyze this amazing game, they discovered that Tebow also averaged 31.6 yards per completion. And to top it off, the Neilsen rating for the last 15 minutes of that game was: 31.6 million viewers!
So, there's that number again: 3:16. Is God speaking from heaven? Does He love us, as the verse promises? And are MANY MULTITUDES now discovering His love through a football game?
It makes you really wonder how many other Tim Tebows, George Washingtons, Albert Einsteins, or Hellen Kellers have been denied life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness all because of the hideous, inhumane, immoral, unethical, God-rejecting, but man-made ‘legal’ abortion ‘procedure.’
