When a woman walks through our doors, we don’t know what to expect. Is she here for a pregnancy test? Is she afraid or hopeful? Does she simply need a little help with baby supplies like diapers or clothing?
We’re happy when a woman walks through our doors regardless of the reason, but one of our favorite encounters is when a former client walks in with a young child to thank us for supporting her and to show us her baby.
That’s why Malsawm came back to our center.
She first came to us in 2017 as a single woman who just found out she was pregnant. At that time, she did not know what to do. Her boyfriend lived in Maryland and wanted her to have an abortion. As a believer, she knew abortion was wrong. She even told us that one thing she knew for sure was that she would have her baby. The client advocate prayed over her and provided her with the resources she needed.
About a year and half later, Malsawm returned! She recently came in to our south center to introduce us to her sweet, 13 month old boy named Joseph. Malsawm also shared that she remembers distinctly the powerful prayer the client advocate prayed for her. She said it met every need and that her life has been helped and improved since she came to us. She is now married to Joseph’s father. Malsawm felt strongly that the Lord wanted her to come back to Life Centers to share her story, to show us her son, and to also give back. She made a financial donation to the ministry that day.
We see this over and over again. Sometimes our clients just need encouragement, resources and prayer so they can do what they know in their hearts is the right thing to do.
