There is something special about this place and it is something much more significant than the Mobile Medical Unit, the classroom, the client room, the ultrasound stations, or Bella’s Boutique. The Spirit of the Lord is here, and it cannot be missed. Pregnancy Resources is dedicated to the work of the Lord. Daily this ministry is covered by fervent prayer. Every hour that the doors are open, Pregnancy Resources is filled with Jesus–loving women and men who are ready and waiting to minister to all who might walk through the door. Pregnancy Resources is a sacred space with divine purpose. Every day, women and men who are walking in the midst of chaos, uncertainty, and stress, visit Pregnancy Resources, and find something they were not looking for and never expected.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
Jada* and her husband were not planning on a pregnancy. Young, newly married, and navigating both anxiety and depression – this pregnancy was not expected, and abortion was being actively discussed. Jada had come for a Pregnancy Test, and a few days later returned for her Ultrasound, but she was still undecided about what she and her husband would “do” next.
Jada confided with her Pregnancy Resources’ nurse that she had been “freaking out in her car out in the parking lot”, yet the moment she entered the center she felt a sense of calm. Jada then went on to share with our nurse that she had decided this was a unique place: “there is just something about this building”, she said. “Everyone is so kind. But I don’t know what it is about this building.” Then with great gentleness and love the nurse was able to explain that the “feeling” in the building is the love of Jesus reaching out to her in a real and tangible way. That day, Jada felt the love and peace of Jesus in a way that was refreshing, new, and unexpected. Our staff continues to minister to Jada sharing hope and compassion at every opportunity.
