Greetings!


With Thanksgiving upon us, we have so many things to be thankful for! God continues to bless and sustain this ministry and bring us even more clients to serve. All parts of the ministry continue to see an increase in clients and our new Thursday evening hours in Life Skills and the pregnancy center are meeting the needs of those unable to come during the day. It is a privilege to minister to these moms, dads and children.


We are also grateful for you, our dedicated and faithful supporters, who have joined with us to share the hope we have in Christ with client families. Because of you lives are saved and the trajectory of each family is forever impacted! Here are some ministry updates:


  • In October, Life Skills launched our new Thrive program to equip moms to deal with the difficulties of life. Meet one mom who's thriving, not just surviving!
  • Interested in volunteering, but need a low commitment that makes a big impact? Consider joining our monthly or bi-monthly rotation of Thursday evening kitchen help! Read more here about volunteer opportunities.
  • We are running low on some much needed benevolence items for clients. Click here to see how you can help!
  • We've partnered with PhilanthroCorp to offer their free legacy planning services to any of our donors and supporters who wish to use them. Find out more about how PhilanthroCorp's estate planning specialists can help you update or create your estate plan. Read more (including testimonies) here! (Your only cost is attorney's fees, and that's discounted if obtained through PhilanthroCorp).
  • We are hiring a full time nurse! Click here for job details.

Praises:

  • For our church partners who serve by volunteering, participating in our baby bottle campaign, sending volunteers and financially supporting us.


Prayer Requests:

  • Pray that abortion would continue to be illegal in Kentucky.
  • Pray that our online marketing efforts would reach abortion minded or abortion vulnerable women and bring them to BsideU.
  • That God will help post-abortive women and men heal through BsideU's post-abortive groups.
  • Pray that BsideU's staff will be led by the Holy Spirit in their daily lives and interactions with clients.
  • Pray that God would guide and direct Monica and our Board of Directors as they lead BsideU.
  • That our Life Skills ministry would be effective in teaching and that clients will put the teaching into practice.
  • Pray that more babies would be saved this year and that more hearts would be changed through the gospel.


Thank you for your faithful support of BsideU for Life! We are grateful for you.


Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
