Our best year is just beginning! At our banquet last year we announced that we were going to investigate the purchase of an ultrasound machine. In January, we were given the gift of a 4-D ultrasound machine from one of our local doctors who just happened to have one. When I picked it up he said, “Isn’t it great when God makes these things happen for His good.” This is one more tool we have to turn our culture toward life. This new opportunity increases the number of abortion-minded clients served, empowers them to choose life, and increases our credibility in the community. In turn, we will be sharing the gospel more and turning more people to Christ.
In the next few months as we work to make this conversion, we are looking at opening a satellite office for group events. We plan to begin a men’s support group there in the spring as the number of male clients, who want to be better fathers, increased 300% from last year.
In order to truly make a difference we also need to involve our area churches. We hosted a breakfast for local pastors (LEMA) to present our plans to become an “Embrace Grace” Pro-Love community, which is a bridge connecting our center to the churches. Ours is a love that reaches out, seeks the best for people, and will not walk away from them in tough times. It’s Founder, Amy Ford, will be our guest speaker at our banquet on October 15, 2015, so please save the date!
Please continue to pray for the center, staff, volunteers, board of directors, and the clients we serve. God has great plans for us in 2015 and we are ready and excited to see where He plans on taking us!
