It felt so good to board the almost-finished Dallas Stork Bus, the first in our fleet. It is a bus designed to offer all of the resources and care of a local pregnancy center to women right outside the five abortion clinics in Dallas. The Dallas Stork Bus is the property of the Downtown Pregnancy Center, a wonderful gospel-centered ministry, who will be operating it. They are committed to not only helping a woman choose life, but also to care for her needs throughout her pregnancy and beyond. They offer classes to new mothers on nutrition, finance, women’s health, parenting, and more. They have classes for dads, too. They also care for their clients’ spiritual needs and help them to walk with God.
A year ago all that we had was an idea. It is a wonderful thing to see that idea materialize. Ann and I have spent the last two months in Texas trying to figure out how to raise support for this project. It turns out that raising money for an idea is harder than we thought. Everyone likes the idea but nobody wants to support it until it works. Thankfully we were able to raise the money for the Mercedes Sprinter van and pay for the carpentry and plumbing of the interior. Now we need to raise the funds both for a sonogram machine and for a full time sonographer so that the Downtown Pregnancy Center can put it on the road!
A lot of people wonder why we are using up our valuable time building this ministry. I thought it was obvious. We love the idea that a woman who has no hope in a crises situation may find hope by boarding our bus. Because of our sacrifice there will be human lives saved from abortion. We will get to meet them, see them grow up, and be a part of their lives. That alone is enough. However, God promises to bless those who bless Him. He says that we will literally receive some kind of treasure in heaven. I have no idea what this is going to look like but I love the concept of investing, especially when I don’t have to pay any taxes on the gains 😉
Please pray for our pro-life venture. Ask God if He wants you to partner with us. If you are interested in hearing more about our Stork project please visit our website: www.SaveTheStorks.com.
And please pray for us; pray for our marriage, pray for our mission, pray for our pro-life venture. We would not ask for it if we didn’t need it.
