One year ago we were about to order our new ultrasound machine.  It has truly been a blessing to this ministry.  Just last week Pati and Becky met with Dr. Ingram and he complimented Becky on the crystal clear images he was seeing from the ultrasound.  We are so thankful to everyone who took part in raising the funds and working toward this new machine.  We are also thankful to God who is the one who causes all good things to come about. 

The warranty agreement on our new ultrasound machine will be up in February and we are also thanking God that if a problem was to arise, it would be before the warranty ran out.  Well it did.  We have a minor problem that should be resolved in a few days and our ultrasound will be up and running again.  Please help us pray about the need for an extended warranty to cover the machine in the future.

This past year Nurse Becky and the other techs have performed 113 ultrasounds. Of those approximately 50 were either abortion minded or abortion vulnerable.  After final assessment 19 mothers changed their mind to continue pregnancy.  Please pray with us for wisdom and guidance on the best routes to take in continuing this invaluable part of the Pregnancy Resource Ministry.

Most churches in the area set aside last Sunday to observe Sanctity of Human Life.  PRC had speakers in about 28 churches and this coming Sunday there are other churches who will participate.  Thousands of bulletin inserts have been distributed to these churches with information about this life affirming work.  If you had a speaker at your church, please be sure to thank you pastor for supporting this work.  If you did not have a speaker, perhaps you can ask your pastor to contact the Center for information about how your church can get involved in the pro-life movement.

Every year the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) host a yard sale to help the PRC.  This is a wonderful fund raiser that helps our annual budget tremendously.  If you have items to donate, please keep them until the week before, then bring them to the house across the street.
This year’s yard sale is scheduled for Saturday, March 11.  We will also be needing volunteers to organize items and man the sale.  If you can help out for this Saturday, please call and let us put you on the list.

Yes it is that time of year again.  We are already organizing, planning, and looking for help with this yearly event.  This year’s banquet will once again be held at First Baptist Church.  The theme is “Who Will Fill These Shoes.”  The date is set for March 30, so please mark your calendar and begin praying.  Please pray about becoming  a table sponsor, table host, prayer warrior, or if you just don’t know what you can do to help, please call the office and we will gladly give you a spot to help out.

May I ask you a personal question?  Have you ever led anyone to the Lord?  Well one of our precious volunteers got to experience this for the first time this week.  The smile that covered her face is one that only comes from the joy of knowing God has used her in a mighty way to help bring a new life into His kingdom.  We are praising God for the new name on our Wall of Life.

The PRC cannot exist without volunteers.   Each year after the Sanctity of Human Life observance many come forward and ask for information about volunteering. God may be speaking to your heart about volunteering at PRC. If so please feel free to call the office for an appointment to meet with Pati or Jackie about volunteering and receive the volunteer application.  A time of Volunteer Training will be scheduled in the coming weeks so please be watching for the date and plan to attend.

March 3-5 Edgewood Baptist Church in Columbus, Georgia will be hosting the National Pregnancy Center Conference.    “Remaining Steadfast in the Coming Storm”
We are living in a culture that is becoming increasingly hostile toward Christianity and pregnancy center ministry. The questions we will answer are: Why the hostility? What kind of attacks against pregnancy centers can we expect? How should we prepare and respond to the attacks? How will God use the attacks for our spiritual good and the accomplishing of His purposes? 
Interested in attending?  Please call Pati for more information.

Baby Boutique - Thank you to all who have brought diapers, wipes and lotions recently.  Please keep them coming.  They are our most popular item in the Baby Boutique.

Special need:  Little start up toddler shoes, size 1, boys and girls.

Receptionist, all day on Monday,  Class facilitator, Tuesday evening (Earn While You Learn teacher)

Please be in prayer for our new volunteers and for more especially to serve at the Beach location.  Also please pray for wisdom in how to get more clients to visit our Beach location.

Please pray that this new year will see more women and men rescued from the clutches of Satan and babies from the threat of death.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are new.”  2 Co. 5:17
