It’s a new year! This is always a good time to reflect on the past and move forward with God given goals for the New Year. We are looking forward to what God has in store for 2018.
January 15th marks three years our doors have been opened. We are continually humbled by a community that has come along side of us to make sure we can accomplish the mission God has given us at Hope Clinic.
This past year we had 291 patients that came in for our services, which has tripled since the first year! 30% were at risk for abortion and we know that half of those changed their mind and decided to carry. Help us pray that those who are still undecided would be led by the Holy Spirit to choose life! More patients came back for follow-up visits this past year. That is a victory. One problem many centers run into is follow-up visits and calls. We also have more volunteers. We are so thankful for the faithful ladies that God has called to be in clinic with us!
We have added two new staff members that are part-time to help us see the increase of patients we expect for this year. Soon you will be seeing the words "Clarity with Compassion". Our goal is that patients will leave Hope Clinic with clear answers, not only about their pregnancy decision, but also about salvation. One goal for this next year is to be more intentional about sharing the gospel. This past year three accepted Christ as their savior. We are praying for an increase of souls saved in this next year. We have started a training with Mission Pre-Born to better equip the staff and volunteers to share the truth of following Christ and His Word! Everything we do we strive to do with compassion. The Bible tells us 11 times that Jesus had compassion on the lost and the sick. We too will strive to show the compassion of Christ in all that we do.
As we move forward into 2018, we pray that you will continue to move forward with us! We know none of this is possible unless we have your support. May God keep you this new year and may you find yourself richly abiding in Christ in all you do!
