I have come that they may have life, and have it to the fullest.
To protect the identity of the woman of our story, we will call her “Sally” Sally had been raped, shot and left for dead. She had been shunned by her family and could not possibly take care of a child. She had made it clear that she intended to abort her child. However, our nurse decided to reach out to Sally one more time. After many attempted calls, Sally finally answered the phone. She shared how she had decided that today would be the day that she not only ended her preborn child’s life but also her own. She had lost our contact information and felt completely helpless. Sally agreed to accept our offer of help. The mobile unit and team went to her. Our team contacted a local maternity home that provided Sally a place to live, maternity care, a job and more importantly love and support.
Sally decided to place her baby for adoption. During her stay at the maternity home, she regularly attended church. As it turns out, Sally has a beautiful voice and has on occasion sung at church.
Sally now extends the same hand of help and rescue that she had received. A co-worker confided in Sally that she was pregnant and planning to abort her preborn child. Sally shared her experience and information that she had received from Confidential Care and encouraged her to reconsider her decision. The co-worker also chose life for her baby.
Sally’s child is now a happy, healthy three-year-old. She chose to not only gave her baby life, a family has been blessed with a child they longed for. Sally gets pictures and regular updates on her baby. And I am told God is using Sally in mighty ways.
Sally was homeless and without hope. But Sally is the daughter of the King that was born that day in Bethlehem and like the wise men we gave her our best. “And the King will say, “I tell you the truth when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me.” Matthew 25.40. This is only one of many, many incredible stories I could share with you. Confidential Care is blessed to be able to serve women and preborn children throughout Tipton and Shelby County.
What gift will you give to the King this Christmas? Your gift to Confidential Care Mobile Ministry will help us reach more women like Sally. We cannot continue this life-saving work without your contribution.
Wishing you and your family a peaceful and joy-filled Christmas season and a prosperous 2018.
