"Exciting things are happening..."

So many exciting things are happening on the education front at Lifeline. Herbie and I had an opportunity to present “Decisions, Choices and Options” to a group of approximately 20 kids this past Sunday night. The material was well received by the youth and we were encouraged that this curriculum does make an impact! The kids’ expressions as we shared information on abortion really painted a picture of how much kids don’t know about this process. Herbie’s testimony on the importance of a father in a child’s life was powerful and especially hit home with the young men in the group. With several more of these presentations on the horizon, we need prayer in order to be effective communicators.

This week invitations for training are being sent out to women who have expressed an interest in mentoring a birth mother here at Lifeline. As birth mother mentors, these volunteers will be able to provide much needed spiritual and emotional support to women facing crisis pregnancies. The training is scheduled for February 20th at 10:00 a.m. and will be held at McElwain Baptist Church in Birmingham.
