Luke & Lydia
Category : Babies
In November 2014, a woman came to the hospital seeking an abortion. She was 40 years old, married with 2 older children, and pregnant with twins. She was very afraid, unable to see how she could care for 2 more children, especially at her age.
Our counselor spoke with her, educating her about the financial assistance available through the government for having a third child, and also offering our assistance in the form of clothes, diapers, and other material items. This woman didn’t know about the help available, and became overjoyed at the idea that she might be able to keep her babies. She told us, “I have been praying that somehow God would stop me from having an abortion!”. She left the hospital crying and hugging everyone in sight.
A few months later, we delivered a care package of food, clothes, and other items, and found out that this family is very open to God and to Spiritual conversations. They have been reading the Bible, and they are attending a local church. The twins, a boy and a girl, were born in June, 2015, and this family is so excited to have them! Every time we speak with them, they express their excitement, and their gratitude to “Lydia” for our counsel, encouragement, and assistance.
