Last night some of us had the privilege of attending our local crisis pregnancy center, A Woman’s Choice annual banquet. This year marked the 25th anniversary of the ministry helping women and unborn children. It was a special celebration of honoring those who laid the foundation for the ministry as well as an opportunity to hear the history of A Woman’s Choice and Necole’s Place. The ministry estimates that 8,000 children have been saved during the course of its 25 years!
The wall behind the stage displayed 25 pictures of saved babies, one for each year the ministry has existed. Some of the mothers of these children gave testimonials in a video played later in the program. Many of them gave testimony as to how glad they were that they went into the wrong building on the day of their abortion appointment, but decided to stay at AWC for an ultrasound. One mother wept with emotion stating that she couldn’t imagine her life without her son she nearly aborted Others gave thanks to AWC and Necole’s Place for the ongoing support they themselves have received after having their babies. Praise God!
Dr. Russell Moore was the keynote speaker and he reminded Christians about the spiritual warfare they face while defending image-bearers of God. Thankfully, Christians “stand with a gospel that is unabortable!” he encouraged those listening. He later tweeted:
If you’d like to hear Dr. Moore’s address, please contact A Woman’s Choice. Praise the Lord for the 25 years of faithful labor and service in Christ’s name!
