This weekend we attended Open Arm's Annual Dessert. There were a couple of hundred people there, and it was a great night! We invited friends that were interested in the ministry and heard Ryan Dobson speak (James Dobson's son). The dessert is always such an emotional experience for me. We have clients speak about the impact Open Arms has had on their lives, and I am always so humbled that God would allow me to be a part of this life saving ministry. Ryan spoke about his own experience of being adopted by the Dobsons, and at the end of his talk he thanked his birth mom (who was 16 at the time) for the sacrifice she made choosing life for him and giving him a better family than she could have provided at that time.
We're still in the midst of the Experiencing God study at our church. If you've been a part of that, you can probably remember the first reality that "God is always at work around us." The study encourages you to find out where God is working and then join him there. Each time I read that reality I am reminded that He is at work at Open Arms. Daily clients enter our doors who need to hear the great Gospel of Christ, and it's our privilege to share with them.
Well speaking of the study now is my chance to complete mine for today (while L is napping). Thanks for reading. Please pray for Pregnancy care centers all over the country today that are standing up for life and sharing Christ with their communities.
