Testimonies from women who chose LIFE!

"Hi! I saw you 3 days ago. I was going to give my baby up and I’m happy I didn’t do it. I want you and the people that you were with to know that it meant the whole world to me to know that you all care about me, not even knowing me. Thanks! I hope to hear from you soon. Any time you want [to call], because [if it weren’t] for you I would have done a really bad thing.” – Jennifer (pictured above)

"No words can tell you how I feel [to have] a person to drive all this way (40 minutes) to bring a stranger food. You are truly an angel." – Anna (a mother who chose life for her baby, but needed food for her other children)

“I just wanted to say again, God Bless you all and thanks for all you are doing to help me and my family.” – Samantha (a mother who received additional help after her choice to choose life for her child)

"I was very scared to come [to the abortion clinic]. I didn't know what God was going to do to get me out of this situation. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you." – Rochelle (changed her mind and chose life for her 17 week old baby)

Above is the ultrasound of a baby BOY that is due to be born this fall! His mother thanked us time and again for being there the day she went into an abortion clinic to obtain an abortion. She also has thanked us for being "like family" to her throughout the pregnancy. We cannot wait to hold, hug and love on this precious little baby! It has been an honor to serve his mama the last few months, as God knit her heart to his!

Our family is blessed to hear testimonies like this that are given from women who felt as if they had no other choice than to exercise their right to abort their own baby. How awesome is our Creator God that He saw fit to allow us to hear just a fraction of those testimonies! We are nothing less than blessed to have met and come alongside these and many, many other women who just needed open arms to run to, a shoulder to cry on, ears to listen and a helping hand! JOY is the word that comes to mind when I think of each mother we've been able to assist! Praise JESUS for the work He's done in Charlotte so far!!!

How precious for women to find a friend in a stranger. They come to kill their baby, but God sends you to intervene. I am rejoicing with these mothers, for they truly are holding gifts from the Lord in their wombs. Thank you, Lisa, for being obedient to love your neighbor, when you could be doing fun & easy things instead. I praise Jesus that you & your family serve & love even when it isn't convenient.

These women are truly blessed to have you and your family to support and help them, when they have no where to turn. You are a testament to the pro-life movement!

"And who is my neighbor?"

In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

Retell this beautiful scripture in you mind about a woman, like the ones we've met above, stripped of their dignity, reduced to the worst choice imaginable, left by those around them to fend for themselves. Think about a baby, a new life given, about to be brutally destroyed. Go ahead and think about a protestor, yelling and angry...or a religious clergy, safely preaching in his pulpit...or a well-meaning Christian too busy with their own life.

And I challenge you, sisters, friends, with as much love as I can type. I challenge you to think about being the kind of believer that is willing to intervene, step up, care for, tend to immediate and long term needs, get involved, disciple, pour your life and your resources out for another and SEE IF GOD DOESN'T SHOW HIMSELF TO YOU AND THOSE YOU TOUCH!!!

Christians, go and do likewise.
