As a Gospel-centered ministry, Cities4Life™️ volunteers and staff work tirelessly to make sure no woman goes into an abortion center without hearing of the Hope and Help that comes through the Lord and His people. We hope this monthly newsletter will be an encouragement as you see what God is doing through this ministry.
Can you help us?… This just doesn’t feel right!
Cities4Life is a Gospel-centered ministry. We understand that it’s God’s word that changes a heart not just free ultrasounds and baby showers. However, the ultrasound and baby showers are a powerful springboard for sharing the Gospel. This played out in a powerful way for a young lady named Kristen*.
Kristen and a friend had come to the abortion center but when they arrived something didn’t feel right to them. Even though they did go into the abortion center, they quickly came back out asking the Cities4Life sidewalk counselors: “Can you help us?”. Kristen went onboard the H.E.L.P. mobile unit and saw her precious baby. She ended up not only choosing LIFE, but she also gave her LIFE to Jesus right there in front of the abortion center.
Marybeth, the C4L counselor, who helped Kristen was able to follow up with her. Months later Marybeth and Sara, our baby shower coordinator, gave Kristen a baby shower in our new office just steps away from the abortion center where they first met. The baby shower was arranged just in time because only a few days later, Kristen’s little boy was born.
What a blessing it is to see a mom who had come to abort her child have such a drastic change of heart and even surrender her life to the Lord. This could only be the work of the Lord. Thank you to all of you who pray and give in support of this work.

November Volunteer Spotlight
When I was 18, I had an abortion. I know the hurt and pain abortion can cause in a woman’s life. That abortion led me down a long road of drug abuse until I was addicted to IV drugs, specifically heroin and meth.
I know God wants to use those terrible experiences to help others. God has healed a lot in my life and made my broken things blessed things! He has also opened my eyes to the holocaust of abortion that is happening all over the country. I can’t sit idly by while babies are being mass murdered! I drive an hour and a half to minister on the sidewalks of the abortion clinic on Latrobe Dr. I pray that more and more people act with urgency. Read more…
Things to pray for this month…
God has done a lot this year. So far we’ve seen over 500 women chose life for their babies and the year isn’t over yet. Please know that we could not do this work without people like you. Your prayers and financial support are crucial. Year-end giving is a vital part of the financial stability of most organizations, and that’s no different for C4L. Please pray for us this month that the provision we need to carry out the vision God has given us for 2020 will be supplied. If you haven’t already, consider supporting us yourself or talking with your pastor or Sunday school group about giving a year-end gift.
On the Gospel-centered Pro-life podcast, we have some episodes that we think will be a blessing to you. One of our moms who chose LIFE will be sharing her story with us and we’ll be doing a Christmas episode you won’t want to miss.
In 2020 Cities4Life is committed to training and equipping more volunteers to be a voice for every unborn child in our city so that no abortion center goes uncovered in our city. Can you help make this possible by giving a generous year-end gift?
