Markham Pregnancy Centre

Proverbs 3:5 & 6 says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” This has been a key verse to describe what God is doing here at the Centre recently. We are reaching more and more “abortion vulnerable” women. They are choosing to come in and meet with me. Some are choosing to keep their babies and we are journeying with them. Even those who choose to abort are still coming back to talk and be cared for with post-abortion support.

Our community awareness has increased as a result. A couple more churches have also recently joined our effort by giving both financial and practical support for our clients. One group now makes nutritional soups for moms and applesauces for their babies each month! Praise the Lord for this. Our clients are also sharing stories with others as they become empowered and equipped to better care for themselves and their children. This further increases our influence and respect in the community.

As we watch these moms open doors and pursue their own education and job acquisition, it is encouraging to think that we have been a small part in their progress. Thank you for continuing your prayers and participation with us.

-Janice Russell, Director

Sisters Maslyn Hamlet & Lucilla Bosma wish to thank everyone for their love and support during the recent passing of their sister, Annabella Wallace: “God bless you for the many expressions of sympathy you made through prayers, contacts, and attendance at both the visitation and the funeral services for our sister. We were comforted and encouraged by the care of our great church family during this time of loss.”
