It is hard to believe that it has been one year since we opened the doors of the Pregnancy Center! We have seen God do so much in one year. This time last year, we would have never dreamed that God would have brought over 150 girls to the pregnancy center in one years time! Just today we had the privilege of leading yet another young girl to Christ. Here are just a few pics of some of the ones we have ministered to this year.
We want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to all who have helped to make this possible. We are utterly amazed at the out pouring of love that so many have had to reach these young ladies with the gospel and not only meet their spiritual need, but to also meet some of their physical needs. Because of the support of so many, we have been able to :
- share the gospel,
- teach all our clients about their pregnancy,
- prepare them to care for their little ones,
- train them in sewing and cooking
- give them a safe place to come and talk about what is going on in their lives
- disciple them
- and love them!
Many of the clients that have walked through the doors of the pregnancy this year, have been abortion minded, but because of the ultra sound machine and the counseling that the clients received, most of them chose to give their babies life! Praise the Lord!
The Lord is continuing to grow the ministry and starting in February we will expand the current center to give us another counseling room, expand our resource room, create an office and a training center to include a place to teach the ladies computer skills, craft skills, and nail and hair skills.
We need your help! We are in great need of more baby items for our resource room. Because we have nearly 80 clients that come every week, we go through a lot of baby resources. Here is a list of things that are needed….
All clothing should be new or slightly used. We want the girls who come to the Pregnancy center to know how much they are valued by us and by God! (If you wouldn’t want your baby to wear it, then don’t send it, and keep in mind we are in a warm climate.)
