Christian wisdom from a silent hero

Very few Americans have ever heard the name John Barros, even though he is beyond the shadow of a doubt one of the greatest Christian heroes of our generation.

Barros has spent the past twenty years ministering outside of an abortion clinic in Florida, preaching the gospel and offering women various forms of assistance should they choose life for their preborn children. God has blessed his ministry with more than 3,000 saved babies: he consistently visits with many of the children, some of whom have now reached adulthood, and he continues to assist their families through his church and local crisis pregnancy centers.

When he is called a hero by the many pastors, lawmakers, and sidewalk ministers who have been influenced by his work to engage the issue of abortion, he instantly gives glory to God.

“I could never take credit for one of them,” he said in an exclusive interview with The Sentinel. “I don't have that power. And the more you do this, and the more you're around, you realize real quick that you don't have the power.”
