Some of our most tender conversations with clients take place immediately after their ultrasound when they’ve just witnessed the miracle of new life.
That was the case with Bella.
Even though her boyfriend hadn’t spoken to her since she found out she was pregnant, she was awed by seeing her baby and was determined to carry the child to term.
Our director said, “Can I share some verses with you about Jesus’ love for you and your baby?” Bella agreed, and our director read portions of Psalm 139 – sharing with Bella how marvelously and intricately her baby was being made in the secret place of her womb, and how she too was fashioned by the very hand of the Lord. Bella responded, “Wow. That is so personal.”
Our director went on to read John 3:16: “For this is how God loved the world: He gave[a] his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life..” and then our director shared the gospel with her. She asked if Bella would like to receive Jesus, and Bella replied with an enthusiastic “Yes!” She prayed to place her trust in Jesus and eagerly accepted a Bible and devotional.
The Lord has ministries like ours in place in the community so clients like Bella can experience the miracle of new life in the womb, and the miracle of their own new life in Jesus. He also has YOU in place in YOUR community for His glorious, life-giving purposes. We thank Him for the gift of you.
