(Part 1 in the Series by Sherry Desloge’s visit to Memphis, TN in early July 2013)
Image Clear Ultrasound, ICU—I—SEE—YOU—, a mobile medical clinic housed in a recreational vehicle, is an opportunity of a lifetime. Cities4Life earlier this year agreed to affiliate with ICU Mobile® which is a non-profit ministry of love and grace deploying mobile pregnancy centers to women everywhere experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. For months now, behind the scenes planning has been taking place to deploy a Cities4Life ICU Mobile clinic in Charlotte in the fall of 2013.
ICU Mobile’s ministry is based on what Jesus said in Matthew 28:19, “Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations…”
A clear directive from Christ, GO.
Not given an option to do anything else but GO.
He calls us to action and the expectation is to GO.
GO is who we are and what we do.
GO serve women – specifically those considering abortion.
GO save lives – specifically the unborn.
GO share Jesus.
Recently I had the privilege to travel to Memphis where a fleet of mobile clinics is deployed in order to experience first-hand this precious ministry’s effectiveness. As a Registered Nurse already trained in limited ultrasound I was curious, excited and blessed to actually live out this new ministry model. In my mind, so much of the my work at hospitals and on the sidewalks hadn’t fulfilled the ministry possibilities I imagined, but once on board I witnessed how ICU Mobile could finally fulfill Christ’s calling on my life.
“He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds.” – Psalms 147:3
Life is precious and being able to literally GO to these women in their culture and in their neighborhoods in order to meet them and offer a FREE opportunity to SEE their unborn child presents a one of a kind, mission opportunity for me and the rest of the team to share the Gospel in a non-judgmental, non-political and non-coercive environment.
Statistics show, that up to 70% of women considering an abortion who view their babies on an ultrasound—choose life!! In 2012 the ICU Mobile fleet saw 87.8% abortion-determined women choose life for their baby while on board.
