At God’s Resources, we are seeing the on the ground impact of COVID-19. The women who are contacting us for our free services are fearful for themselves, their family and what the future holds. Whether wanting to parent, seeking an abortion or having not made a decision either way – they are all afraid. As Florida’s infected numbers are at a record high, we continue to seek God’s wisdom in serving our community safely and effectively. We believe He is faithful to the faithful – so we continue. With our Lord, we “walk on water” during this storm.
Since April 1st, operating three days per week due to budget restrictions, we have:
- Received 245 phone calls – some seeking our services, others seeking assistance outside our services. We are thankful that we have been able to point them to other community resources that could assist with their specific needs.
- Served 105 women, providing many of them with Proof of Pregnancy documentation so they can apply for Medicaid insurance and begin to receive the medical care they will need for themselves and their baby. (Healthy mom = healthy baby!)
- As we have trusted the Lord during this time, we can confirm 17 lives have been spared from abortion.
Isn’t it wonderful that out of this fearful time, 17 women, men and their families will experience the blessing and joy that a new baby brings! I think of this verse:
and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair. Isaiah 61:2-3
We covet your prayers that God will continue to protect our staff, provide us with the resources we need to continue to serve Him and to provide all of us with the courage to continue to walk on water during this perilous time.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
