What drew you to getting involved with the Center?
I am passionately pro-life and I have been earnestly praying God would intervene in America’s heart, and in the area of abortion in particular. I began by donating a little money occasionally to the Center, then began monthly donations and finally got over my fear and started volunteering. Then the Lord opened the door for me to work here at the Center as my primary ministry. There is a great Thomas More quote that says, “The things we pray for, good Lord, give us the grace to labor for.” I am thankful God gave me the grace and courage to start here at Center. I get to see HIM at work every day I’m here.
What has impacted or surprised you most about volunteering at the Center?
What has surprised me is how this ministry is comprised mostly of volunteers and a few employees with different, backgrounds, life experiences and talents. God unifies us all into one body. It amazes me. God does the scheduling. The right girl gets matched up with the right client advocate and love and truth are extended. God is using small conversations and our willingness as the little fish and loaves that HE multiples into the miracle of changed hearts and saved lives. God is so good!
What moment or experience stands out to you?
I love getting to be a faithful witness. Watching the Holy Spirit flip on the light switch in an abortion-minded young lady when she sees those sonogram images and hears that baby’s heartbeat for the first time. If a picture is worth a thousand words, hearing a heartbeat is worth a million! And I get the honor of watching! How cool is that?
