Well, where does one begin, I guess you would say right here, so here we go.
As I entered the center this past Monday, I entered with excitement and
"Oh dear God be with me!" Jackie was the first person I saw and with her
wonderful smile, God put my fears to rest. So as the day when on, many
things crossed my path, from learning paperwork, answering the
phones,how to enter clients into the computer, sending emails out,
putting donor information in the computer, going to the bank and oh yes,
then there was lunch! If memory serves me correct, I took a client or
two that afternoon.
Monday night I met 2 wonderful ladies that do our Post Abortion Recovery
Program, which is so dear to my heart and I was very pleased to give
them some information on what I learned as a facilitator in many classes
that I did at the centers I either worked at or volunteered at.
I worked with the ladies on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning with
EWYL( Earn While You Learn), that it itself is an huge undertaking.
Watching these clients learning and seeing a few precious little babies,
makes the work sweeter.
So as the week when on, I was swimming in information and you know the
funny part about this is, on Thursday Jackie said "Are you over loaded
yet?" I said back to her, "why does that deer in the headlights give it
As Friday rolled around, Jackie and I worked on e-mail blast, learning
more paperwork, answering phones and making appointments for clients
calling us. As I look back on this past week, my heart is heavy thinking
about all the volunteers we need so so desperately, to help with all
the different arms of this wonderful awesome ministry. My prayer is all
the volunteers we have now, will seek out people in their churches more
then ever before, to help us go shoulder to shoulder as we Glorify our
So now here it is 4:00 pm, Friday afternoon and I am typing to get this
e-mail out to everyone, but as the time is getting away from me, it
will most likely go out on Monday. I thank God for placing me in this
position as Executive Director, asking Him to give me wisdom,
guidance,direction,a calm heart,to help me focus on the job He has laid
The week of the 17th-21st we had for clients:
Pregnancy Tests- 7
I believe I got the numbers correct, I am still learning, so I ask for mercy and a lot of grace!
I came across these verses in Proverbs 24: 3-4
vs 3-Through wisdom a house is built
and by understanding it is established
vs 4- By knowledge the rooms are filled
with all precious and pleasant riches.
Now I do not want to take scripture out of context, but when I read
this, it so spoke to my heart about this center. So with that scripture
in mind,in my own thoughts------we know our house is built and we
understand why we have been established, We have the knowledge that our
rooms are to be filled, with those precious clients, babies, the people
coming to Christ, the women turning to Jesus Christ for healing from the
trauma of their past abortion( let us not forget the men) and looking
at the riches that God is bestowing to this little yellow house on Grace
Ave and at our location at the beach.
