to the ends of the earth
In 2009, two of our staff members, Gail and Mary, traveled on a short term mission trip to Kenya. They led a Post-abortion Support Group (Passages) for 15 women, a Facilitator Training for a Pregnancy Center in Nairobi, and provided a Day of Refreshing Seminar for the Center’s Satellite office in Nakuru.
It was sad to see how Post-abortion Stress affects women throughout the world, but amazing to witness the Omnipresent power of God heal women and set them free from the shame, guilt, and pain that keeps them in bondage!
What a joy it was to receive a report from Akech, one of our Passages attendees, letting us know that she has continued the Lord’s work in abortion recovery.
Since 2009, Akech has held 6 Passages support groups, including one for men. She has also held Post-abortion Education Trainings for 240 students at the University of Nairobi and presented an Abortion Awareness Seminar in the Kibera slums. In addition she has given her testimony over the airwaves on Ghetto radio, which reaches into 3 major Nairobi slums and they have 82,000 likes on Facebook. Praise the Lord!
In August 2011, Gail once again represented New Life Solutions by returning to Kenya to hold another Facilitator Training. She met with Akech to strategize the future growth of Passages in Kenya and delivered 100 Forgiven and Set Free books to equip her to hold Passages Bible Studies for women living in the slums.
God is penetrating into the darkness and going right into the heart of these ghettos where there may be no electricity, no plumbing, and mostly one room shacks with cardboard walls. God is truly delivering His gift of salvation, hope and healing through Passages in Kenya!
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” ~ Acts 1:8
Thank you for your prayers & financial support that allow us to reach men, women, and teens here in Pinellas County, our local mission field [our Jerusalem], and to the outer most parts of the world!
Do you need healing?
Have you seen our 2 Billboards on US Hwy 19? One just south of Curlew Road and the other at the Ulmerton Road exit. Both billboards are facing southbound traffic.
We know that many people are suffering silently from Post-abortion Grief and need healing. If you or somebody you know suffers from a past abortion, please contact us about getting registered for a local, free, and confidential Passages Group that is forming now.
