“You’re Not Alone, Sister!”

CARING FOR MIGRANT MOMS AND NEWBORNS IN EASTERN EUROPE

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these . . .  you did for me’” (Matt. 25:40).

Faith’s Story

Faith is a seamstress in our capital city. When her partner discovered she was expecting, he left her. In despair, she sought an abortion. But God brought her to us. Through counseling, she chose to keep the baby. Recently, Faith had a bout with the flu and had to be hospitalized. Please pray. She is a high-risk pregnancy and is due June 21.  

Missy’s Story

Missy came to us through a believer who works in a local medical clinic. She was having trouble making ends meet and was seeking an abortion. We offered Missy medical assistance and located a job for her as a cloakroom assistant. Unfortunately, she may still be considering abortion due to her financial needs. Pray that God will provide for all of Missy’s needs and reveal Christ as her loving Provider. Pray she will turn to Him in repentance and faith. We believe that if we could provide temporary shelter to these young women, situations like Missy’s could be avoided.

Praises

  • Maddie, our director, has completed her second year of studies in biblical counseling.
  • Almost two-thirds of our program materials have been translated.
  • We have had a few opportunities to share about the project with some leaders of one of our national partners—both with members of the missions committee and at a recent conference last week. We are encouraged by the interest local leaders have begun to show.

Prayer Requests

  • God’s provision of the right facility. We continue to seek the Lord regarding our next steps. Please pray with us as to whether we should consider buying, since renting has been met with insurmountable odds.
  • That He will provide a strong team of volunteers for this ministry
  • That God would raise up funding sources, both locally and internationally
  • For grace upon grace—wisdom, patience, and discernment for our director. She is struggling to parent a daughter who is rebelling against authority.

Thank you for your overwhelming prayer support as we continue to wait on God’s timing for the launch of the women’s crisis pregnancy shelter.

Our vision
We desire to provide a temporary residential recovery program, offering support for pregnant women and/or young mothers with newborn babies.  Support will be given through mentoring relationships, teaching, and counseling services.
