"If I have this baby, my boyfriend will leave me."
Let me tell you about a God who promises to never leave you or forsake you. Hebrews 13:5
“My parents will kick me out of the house if I don’t have an abortion.”
There’s a father who loves you unconditionally
and promises, “When your father and mother forsake you, He will take you up.” Psalms 27:10
Dear Friend of the Ministry,
Regardless of the circumstances and fears surrounding an unplanned pregnancy, the Word of God gives truth and hope. God doesn’t promise a painless path, but He promises that if we choose his way, He will walk with us through these valleys. He promises to give us “beauty for ashes” at the end of our difficult journey.
Our ministry is to plant His Word in the hearts of men and women, trusting the Holy Spirit to convict, empower, and encourage each client. Then we follow God’s lead in helping with emergency and practical needs. My prayer and sincere wish is that you would be compelled to give a gift towards this life saving ministry. Thank you for your faith, friendship, and support!
