ABWE celebrates first pregnancy crisis center in Liberia

By October 2, 2008

Liberia (MNN) — The New Hope Pregnancy Center is teaching the postwar country of Liberia about God's offer of forgiveness, hope and compassion.

New Hope is the first pregnancy crisis center to be established in Liberia, and the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (ABWE) desires to see it change the community. Most young people in the country were raised without parental guidance due to the civil war, and they are therefore a generation with confused morals, life philosophy and biblical principles.

God is opening doors for more Liberians from the capital to be involved in leadership.Tom Lothamer of BFL, Inc. gave the leadership team training for a transition into board responsibilities, as well as encouragement in many areas of the ministry.

Volunteers of the center need your prayer. Many walk far to get to work, and some struggle to obtain daily food and send their children to school. The rising cost of rice and other necessities have made life harder. Pray also for the volunteers as they share the hope of Christ with the women who come to the pregnancy center seeking help.
