We know many of you watch our posts and read our updates thinking, “Wow, this is awesome work, I’m glad they are doing that!” And to that we say, “Yes, it is awesome work, but it’s the Lord doing this awesome work through His people!”. We really believe that. God has chosen to use us, in our frailties and weaknesses, to be a voice for the voiceless children that are scheduled to die 6 days a week in our city. However, we want to encourage you, that He is also willing and able to use you. The Apostle Paul said to the Corinthian Church, in 1 Corinthians 2:3, “I came to you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling.” He went to bring the awesome truth of the Gospel to these people not with excellent speech and everything we might think is necessary to be effective, but he came in weakness. Some of you may think that you could never do what we do on the sidewalks at the local abortion clinics, and we agree, apart from the Lord’s strength we would all be ineffective. But if, like Paul, you come with weakness, in fear, and much trembling, and you are willing to trust in the Lord, you too are well qualified to shine the light of the Gospel at these places of darkness.
We want to do the best we can to encourage you to be a Gospel presence at the local abortion clinics. That’s why we’re holding a Cities4Life Volunteer Open House on May 10. This is a very casual event designed to show you very simply who we are and what we do as a ministry and how you can get involved. We understand that many of you watching our posts and reading our blogs might want to get involved but have questions about the ministry. We’ll be sharing a lot of the why, how, and what of our ministry. Also, I believe one of the most beneficial parts of this event is the Q&A with seasoned volunteers that we have planned at the end.
Our founder, David Benham, will be there to briefly share his heart in founding this ministry and you’ll also hear some stories of lives that were saved and changed by what the Lord is doing through Cities4Life.
Dessert and Coffee will be available so please sign up ASAP to let us know you will be joining us.
