I have still remained in contact with the director of the maternity home I became interested in a few months ago and had almost entirely given up on anything happening there when I got an email last night saying there is a finally a resident at the home again for the first time in a while. Only one but better than none! I don’t know her story yet but I hope this means I can have her into our home soon and get to know her!
If you think about it, please pray this girl will stay at the home and follow through with the program they have set up there. It is fairly strict and many of the girls bail out within the first few weeks, mostly because they are not allowed to use their cell phones in case they get in touch with their boyfriends and this restriction is too much for most of them to handle. But if they commit to the program, they can find a job, further their education, find housing, and most of all, be immersed in Christian teaching.
I am so thankful a new girl has come to the home. How quickly I have let the initial passion I felt begin to wane but thankfully, God has reminded me that He still wants me to be involved in this ministry.
