The 2019 Annual Banquet is in our rearview mirror and for those who attended, we sincerely hope that the evening was a blessing to you. Mary Beerworth, Executive Director of VT Right to Life, opened many eyes to the dark reality of VT's ties to the Eugenics movement. The Eugenics movement never really went away, it just morphed into the idea of abortion being all about "health care for the disadvantaged" and "women's choice". While this knowledge is both sobering and sad, when Vermonters face the truth of what abortion is really all about, then we are better prepared for the battle.
We thank God for Mary and everyone at VT Right to Life for their persistence in shining the light of truth on what our adversary would rather be kept in the dark!
Some of you seemed to leave the evening with a sense of frustration. After all, what can Christians do to fight against such a well-funded enemy? The answer is biblical: Get busy! (Matt. 5:16) God can use anyone-regardless of age or physical ability-for His purpose. We have been asking awhile now for another committed Christian to stand up and become our next Director of Development. As a faith-based nonprofit, we have to raise all of our own funding. That fact alone makes the position vital to our future success as a ministry! If you feel the call, or know a qualified Christian who might not know our need, please contact us.
Also, we are always looking for Client Advocate volunteers to work directly with the clients, demonstrating God's love and provision. Share His grace!
More physical needs for the center include: installing and removing the air conditioners each year, keeping the garden out front weeded, washing the windows and tidying/organizing the Blessings Boutique and the storage areas upstairs and down as we receive new donations. A BIG need for us is to update the waiting area. The rug there is stained, tired and needs to go! The walls could use a nice paint job and if the paint and flooring were donated, that would be an even bigger blessing. A warm, cheerful and welcoming waiting/entrance area would really give us a much needed boost in presentation!
So, now what?
Hopefully, we've just given you some ideas to pray about!
