I am challenged every time I read the gospels about the power of FAITH.  I was reading in the book of Matthew in chapter 14 about Jesus walking on the water.  Peter wanted proof that it was Jesus walking on the water so he said, “tell me to come to you on the water.”  Jesus said, “Come”.  Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus.

Can you imagine?  But in the midst of this amazing miracle Peter took his eyes off Jesus and focused on the wind and became afraid and began to sink.  Jesus responds with, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”

This has been my battle.  I have faith to believe that with God all things are possible.  I dream big and believe that great things will happen.  But in the midst of trusting Him, for a moment, I take my eyes off Jesus and see the wind, become afraid and begin to sink, and cry out to Jesus, “Lord save me!”  Just like with Peter Jesus immediately reaches out his hand and catches me.  “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”

There is no time for doubt.  We MUST get this ministry open with a sense of urgency.  It has just been announced that local family practice doctor, Mila Means in collaboration with anesthesiologist Gregory Linhardt are acting to open an abortion clinic in Wichita by mid-2011.

A friend who works for a pro-life clinic told me that resources are key to a woman’s decision to chose life for her child.  Our resident and non-resident program’s are designed to support mothers who find themselves in a crisis pregnancy and to provide them the resources they need to provide for their child emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Would you please help us?

I have faith and believe that God will provide for every need we have to get this house open in January.  We still have rooms that need to be sponsored and we need monthly supporters.

Would you consider helping us reach our goal by December 31, 2010?
