From the Director 

The Director’s Desk

Sometime, in the last few weeks, we woke up and realized that life as we have known it is different. Drastically different. COVID-19 has impacted us all. Our frailty has been exposed. Uncertainty has crept in. Day to day living has been altered, and plans have been forced to change. Yet, we need not live in fear – for OUR HOPE IS SECURE!

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. — Isaiah 41:10 (NLT)

This is our time to let the hope of Jesus shine. This is our moment to absorb chaos and share the calm sense of peace that is only possible with the saving power of Jesus and the strength that God alone provides. This is our opportunity to meet women and men who are walking in fear and share the assurance we claim even in these chaotic days. Be assured, in mid – February, Pregnancy Resources began making changes – implementing what at the time seemed “extreme protocols” and setting into motion new, accelerated best practices. These best practices would prove necessary and beneficial in helping protect our clients and our team while meeting the immediate needs of our community.

Help is still available at Pregnancy Resources in Davenport & Moline. Emergency diapers are available weekly to those in need. Pregnancy Tests and Ultrasound care will continue to be offered. Life-affirming assistance will be available. Mentoring and classes will eventually return. When it is appropriate, our Mobile Medical Unit will again be brought into service. In the coming weeks and months, ministry operations and services will look different than it has in the past. And that’s ok – it has to be – because it is our new shared reality. And regardless of the details of this day, God is still in control.

I know you have been impacted by these events. Our clients have been profoundly impacted too. The pressure to abort is more intense. Access to help is more limited. The need for the help Pregnancy Resources provides grows by the day. Please continue to pray specifically for us during this time. Pray that our clients will seek our life-affirming help, pray that our team will stay healthy and strong, and pray that the financial needs of the ministry will continue to be met.

“Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth! Worship the Lord with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy. Acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made us, and we are His. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give a thanks to him and praise his name.” Psalm 100:1-4 (NLT)

What a fabulous reminder! God is too big, too amazing, and too awesome for us to remain quiet. Everything we do can be an act of worship. Every attitude and action can reflect God’s authority and bring Him glory! And every day we have reason to offer praise!

Today, I offer praise for the beautiful opportunity I have been granted to I serve alongside you in ministry at Pregnancy Resources. Today, your Pregnancy Resources team rejoices in our placement as urban missionaries who are charged with the responsibility of offering life affirming, biblically based medical services, education and support across the greater Quad Cities. Today, we rejoice in the truth that each woman and man in need of hope who walks through the doors of Pregnancy Resources will be greeted with the love, the compassion and the mercy of Christ. We rejoice together. We serve together. Together we are amazed at the goodness, the faithfulness and the transforming power of our God.

Blessings.
Trisha Wilson, Executive Director
