An Opportunity to Help a Crisis Pregnancy Center in Need

A lot of people wonder if there is anything practical and helpful they can do to reduce abortion and to help hurting women in need. One of the best ministries with boots on the ground is Heartbeat of Miami (started by John Ensor). But they are seriously hurting these days and they may have to close their doors. Mike Seaver has a helpful post explaining their need and how you could help:
Heartbeat of Miami is a crisis pregnancy center that was strategically planted in Miami, Florida, the city in the USA with the highest abortion rate. John Ensor and others had a vision for planting these centers in strategic cities and this was their first one. Here are some staggering statistics.
  • They are the only crisis pregnancy center in that part of the city and there are 37 abortion clinics.

  • In 3 years that Heartbeat of Miami has been open, over 4000 ladies have been served and over 1000 babies have been saved.

  • Their financial support is down 48% this year.

Please consider making a donation...even a $5 donation to help unborn babies have the gift of life. You can go here to donate. There is also a matching program through the end of August 2009, so if you give $ is actually like giving $10. If you give $ is like giving $100. Please pray and if you feel the Lord leading you, please give.

Update: If you want to donate, go here and look in the lefthand column and click "Donate now." The earlier "here" link won't work from my blog.
