Sometimes in life something so tremendous happens that you have to just stop, look at all that God has done, and celebrate with a grateful heart.
Today we’d like to share with you some landmarks we’ll never forget in the Pro-Life and Gospel movement here in Israel.
We’d like to share with you the firstfruits of our Pro-Life and Gospel Campaign: We launched it about 6 months ago, and by God’s grace, so far over 4 million Israelis have viewed our videos and ads, at least 60 babies who were going to be aborted have been saved, and the first two of them have now been born!
Let’s start with the first miracle story. The doctor told one mother that her baby’s brain was 3.5 times larger than usual, and urged her, “You need to have an abortion immediately.” But we prayed for this family and encouraged them to keep the baby.
We hadn’t heard from them for a while, but when we did, it left us in awe of the God of Wonders. “There’s no problem with the baby’s head at all!” They shared triumphantly, “The little boy looks perfect!” Hallelujah!
God not only does miracles in our bodies - He also does them in our hearts. Asher* called our men’s helpline looking for an abortion for his wife. He said, “Listen, I got into a car wreck, I can’t work now, my wife and I can barely take care of the three kids we already have - we just need an abortion.”
Our team member Eliel listened and when he heard that Asher is a God-fearing Jew, answered, “Look, from God’s perspective, this is already a baby. I understand that you’re in a difficult situation, but we can help you and more importantly, God can help you, if you keep the baby.”
We connected his wife, Miriam, with our counselor Roberta. Miriam still wanted an abortion, but after a heart-to-heart conversation and hearing about all the ways we and our partners could help, Asher and Miriam made their decision.
It wasn’t easy, they understood there would be consequences for their whole life, but ultimately...they chose life for their child!
Fast forward a few months. Asher and Miriam called us: Listen, it’s a boy, we’re having the circumcision this week, and you’re invited!
Our team members Ari and Rachel attended the celebration of a beautiful new life. The proud parents announced there the name they had chosen for their son, and the meaning of his name is “Son of God.”
We’re so grateful for your prayers and support that make all this possible! If you’d like to get all the stories of what God’s doing through this ministry, please sign up for our newsletter if you haven’t already.
