FLINT, Mich. (BP) -- Justin Phillips said it's the best and worst thing he's ever done with his life. Every day, he stands across the strip mall parking lot from a door marked simply G-3422. It's sandwiched between two dollar stores.
Every week, 20 to 30 babies are aborted there.
"We're out there pleading with moms and dads to have mercy on their child, and we'll help," said Phillips, a full-time missionary with ONElife for Life, a ministry of ONElife Church in Flint, Mich.
Since ONElife for Life began in May 2016, dozens of babies that they know of have been saved out of G-3422. And the ministry has grown, said Eric Stewart, pastor of ONElife Church and president of ONElife for Life. They've acquired a building next to the strip mall that will be a pregnancy resource center and they've been given a bus that will be used as a mobile ultrasound.
They've also expanded their reach to conversations outside a second abortion clinic in town.
