Today a group of volunteers met to organize donated baby items for the Women's Center. They joyfully sorted through donations gathered by people here in Odessa as well as items that were sent from the states. When they finished one of the ladies said we need to thank the Lord for sending us these items and for the people who gave them. They were especially excited about the handmade baby blankets that churches and individuals in the U.S. had sent and wanted to be sure that those churches knew we were grateful.

While this report is a bit delayed, I would be remiss not to share with you some of the March events in Odessa. On March 8th we had an open house for the Women's Center. This was a chance for volunteers to bring their friends and family to see the center and also a chance for pastors and others who have supported us in this process to come and see what we are doing. We began the day with a short service of dedication attended by our steering committee, some of our post abortion ministry leaders, and some pastors. It...

This week four groups of ladies will begin the 10 week “Forgiven & Set Free” Bible study for women post abortion. Miriam has been working diligently at mentoring our leaders for these groups, and will be co-leading one of the groups. We have two ladies who have taken the leader training and will be observing our experienced leaders during this study in preparation for being able to lead groups themselves. Please pray for our leaders as they prepare to lead the groups each week. Pray that God will give them the wisdom and discernment they need to effectively minister to...

On Saturday, we had a meeting for those interested in becoming volunteers to work in the Pregnancy Care Center that we hope to open Feb/March of 2014. We were very excited about the enthusiastic response! We had ladies and a couple of men from a number of Odessa churches who came to learn more about our plans and how they can be involved. We received 7 completed applications on Saturday and a number of other people took applications to fill out. We also had several ladies sign up to go through the Forgiven and Set Free Bible study for women...
