Mission Focus for December

The mission theme for December is New Life Family Services of Rochester. The mission of this organization is to honor the sanctity of human life by assisting clients in life-affirming decisions with the love and compassion of Christ.  Their goal is “birth for little one, rebirth for their mothers and fathers.”  In addition to adoption services, New Life offers three other branded services: First Care pregnancy center which offers confidential pregnancy testing, ultrasound, and decision making counseling; Conquerors provides post-abortion healing through Christian counseling to help those who had an abortion heal through Christ’s forgiveness; and the Ab.stin.ence resource center sex education materials.  The addition of ultrasound services, which cost about $500 per client, allows women to see the new life inside of them and helps to reduce abortion.  The mission for December will be both an ingathering of diapers (sizes 3-5), office supplies such as paper towels, manila folders, toilet paper or gift cards for Target or Office Max, baby wipes, and infant clothing. Monies will go to support the ultrasound services.  But, the #1 need is prayer.
