The Provision of Time

The provision of Time

November 2020 Update from Our Community Relations Manager

An abortion-vulnerable client came in a couple of weeks ago. When our nurse, Meg, reached out to her a few days after her initial appointment, she found her really upset. The client had even made an appointment at the abortion clinic the next day. Meg and Sherri (one of our client advocates) talked to her on the phone and worked the schedule out so she could come in THAT night.

She came to the appointment – late but grateful. She talked about the battle in her mind – very spiritual and emotional. She talked specifically about how “cold” the people were on the phone with her at the abortion clinic – “not like here,” (at Alcove Health) she said. She even made comments about how they wanted to make sure she brought the money she would need to start the appt at the abortion clinic. She talked about the difference in our clinic.

All that to say this – our clients often make “back-up plans.” As a staff, we are so grateful for the provision of time that our donors give us to make space and sit down and talk with women. For this woman, this literally allowed us to meet with the woman again before she went to the abortion clinic. She didn’t go to the abortion clinic the next day. She needed a safe place at the right time and we – because of our donors – were able to provide it. Praise the Lord!!

Prayer and Praises – November 2020

November 2020 Prayer & Praises

In this season of ongoing sickness and turmoil it can be easy to lose sight of the good things that still surround us. The beauty of the changing leaves. Warm drinks on a cold day. And the hope that each new life brings.

We see it here in the clinic as we watch babies grow in the womb and as we serve families coming to us for warm winter clothes and blankets for their newborn. Each of these little ones, even (and especially) the unborn, remind us that life itself brings hope. 

So as we enter into this season of giving thanks, we combine thanks for the blessings that we have now with the hope for good things to come. We are truly grateful for a community, made up of individuals, that takes action for the most vulnerable among us, the unborn. And we join our hope with yours that these lives that God has brought into the world will know Him and share His light with the world. 

"I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people." - Ephesians 1:18

Praise God for a successful banquet where over 400 people on the peninsula joined in our mission to serve moms and save babies.

Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will. Praise the Lord, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the Lord, my soul.” – Psalm 103:21-22

Pray that churches will say yes to participating in a Bottles4life campaign we are planning for Sanctity of Human Life in January.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” – James 1:27

Please pray for our nurses who are receiving training as we are in the process of expanding our services in 2021 to include STI testing.

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands.” – Psalm 90:17
