To begin I want to say thank you! Thank you for being one of the faithful supporters of Living Alternatives over the many years we have been answering God’s call to minister to young women in unplanned pregnancies, single moms, their babies, and children in need of Christian homes. Daily, we are reminded of the loving community we are surrounded by and the generosity of so many who have supported us at our annual banquet.
I am very excited to share some of the good news God is doing through Living Alternatives. We are truly amazed by the growth we are seeing at the Pregnancy Resource Center and Building Blocks! We are preforming more than 130 free pregnancy tests each month (the only free pregnancy test in Smith County) and are seeing 20 girls each week for free sonograms. It is at this juncture that the young mom and dad see their baby for the first time and often choose life! What an honor to be a part of this God honoring decision. As you can imagine, more girls equals more hurting hearts that need unconditional acceptance, guidance and practical help, making a life choice for their unborn child obtainable.
As I’m sure you can see, this is not the typical banquet invitation that you have received in the past. This year we are sensing that another BIG step is on the horizon for Living Alternatives, we are expanding our tent with a vision for building expansion. This year our fall banquet is being pushed forward to a Spring Event 2017, when we will be more prepared to share the bigger vision in more detail. Please watch for your invitation after the first of the year.
In the meantime, can I ask you to give what you would have given at the banquet? We count on these funds to help close the current year and open the next. Or, if you’d like to designate your giving, we do have specific immediate requests for Fatherheart – our 1962 tractor must be replaced, and we are in need of a 12-15 passenger van for our pregnant girls, new moms and their kiddos. Each of these items, used, will cost approximately 15-20k. Would you please prayerfully consider giving in spite of the fact that we will not be sitting together at the banquet this fall? An envelope and donation card is enclosed for your convenience. We look forward to partnering with you in the next step at Living Alternatives. Click here to make your donation now.
With gratefulness for our partnership,
