This years fundraiser brought many blessings for those at the event and those who participated in making it happen. Many thanks to all who supported the event.
Recently a Biology class at a local high School invited our Mom’s Ministry to an end of year party. The class had collected baby items throughout the school year to donate to our ministry. The class took this opportunity to also have a baby shower for two of our moms, Kim and Faith. The class provided a pizza party, gave a presentation on the stages of the baby’s life in the womb and then we showed the class an ultrasound of Kim’s baby at 27 weeks in the womb. We extend our gratitude to Ms. Green and her class for their wonderful support of life.
During a recent 40 Days for Life Prayer campaign a sidewalk counselor, Frances, was praying outside of Planned Parenthood at 701 San Mateo NE in Albuquerque. She held a sign saying, Abortion, the Ultimate Child Abuse, with a picture of a baby’s face on it. A young woman, perhaps 20 years old, was on her way into the abortion mill when she stopped to look at Frances’ sign. Frances prayed for her and for her unborn child, holding the sign higher as the young woman paused for several seconds still staring.
The Mom’s Ministry “Parents as Leaders” program meets every Wednesday night. We offer the Nurturing Care program to our Moms and their guests. Deacon John Rasinsky then takes 1/2 hour of class for spiritual education, and then we end with dinner for everyone. All children are well taken care of during class by our group of childcare workers.
