Celebrating 25 Years of Serving the Lord
For unto us a child is born , unto us a son is given : and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6
Dear Friend for Life,
Recently my wife Terri and I witnessed a harvest 24 years in the making when we attended a beautiful and unforgettable wedding of a Godly 23 year old young lady who was saved from abortion at our original Pinellas Park Center in 1987. Her mother Vicki, who is now married and serving in ministry with her husband, shared her story with us.
I came to the Pregnancy Center in 1987 when I was 14 years old. It was actually my 2nd time there. I had come about a year earlier but I chose through the counsel of my family to abort that pregnancy. This time I listened to your counselor and made the decision to keep my baby. I was so young and scared. She spoke to me about the Lord. Most of that went right over my head, but I did listen and knew there was a life inside of me, especially since just a year earlier, I had taken one away. Eight months later my beautiful Samantha was born. Of course I was still a little girl myself. So we grew up together as I struggled through my adolescence, my education, past abuse, and addictions. I always loved my daughter. No matter how hard or what the struggle was, I knew keeping her was the one right choice I had made in my life. I wasn’t always able to express it to her because I was so lost in my life. By the age of 23 I found myself being the mother of 3 daughters and God in His grace finally opened my eyes to hope. When I surrendered my life to Jesus everything started over for us. Samantha who had always struggled right along side of me and who had to grow up way to quickly because of me, gave her heart to the Lord and so did her sisters! We all started attending church and we grew up and grew in our faith together. As soon as Samantha could, she started serving in the church and ministering. Still serving, she’s grown up and has married a Godly man. The Pregnancy Center helped me choose life. I can never say thank you enough for being there, and for sharing the message of hope and the love of Christ with me.
Vicki is one of the thousands of young women we have been privileged to serve and minister to over the past 25 years. Samantha, now a lovely newlywed, is one of the precious lives that has been saved! Thank you for investing in their lives!
God’s Word says in Zechariah 4:10 “… do not despise these humble beginnings...”
The Pregnancy Center of Pinellas County officially opened its doors in November 1985 with a $25,000 budget, 1 paid employee, 800 sq ft office and a strong calling and vision to share the Gospel and provide women and teens alternatives to abortion.
Saving One Baby A Day from the Holocaust of Abortion
This year we are expecting 360 babies to be saved from abortion through this ministry. Praise the Lord!
Let’s continue to partner together for the right for babies to be born by taking a stand for Life! Deuteronomy 30:19 tells us: “Now choose life, so that you and your children may live!”
The ultimate injustice is to be deprived of Life! As many of you know my mother is a Holocaust Survivor and Samantha is one too. She is a survivor of the Holocaust of Abortion here in America today! Your continuing support helps us save 1 baby a day in whom God has placed His Plan, Purpose, Calling and Destiny.
Growth and Harvest
Since our humble beginnings God has raised up a four-fold ministry under the name of New Life Solutions, to encompass our outreaches to the community:
