The Long Journey

How Mia Came to Christ Because of You!

It all started with a phone call.

Your generous support for Pregnancy Decision Line (PDL), Care Net’s national hotline, opens the door for fearful mothers to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ and choose life for their unborn babies and abundant life for their families.

It often takes more than one conversation to change someone’s life and, in some cases, it can take weeks of reaching out to one of our hotline coaches before they develop a relationship and an opportunity to share Gospel.

When Mia first called our hotline coach Maria*, she had not yet decided whether or not to keep her child. She is leaning heavily on leaving the state to get an abortion (since abortion is illegal where she lives). But after speaking with one of our PDL coaches, and hearing all the love and tangible support available to her, Mia began to rethink her options.

A few weeks later, Mia heard from her PDL coach again. Things went better this time. Mia knew she could talk to her coach freely because he was kind and helpful the first time.

Teaching Christ, Saving Lives

As they talked, their discussion turned to spiritual matters. Mia knew about God, but she didn’t really think of herself as a Christian. Her coach told her about Jesus’ love for her and her baby. Even better, he tells Mia that Jesus has a plan and a purpose for them.

Mia had been asking God to help her since she found out she was pregnant, but she still felt guilty, she was still afraid, and she doubted that she could give her baby a stable future with what she had. What Mary describes is better than how she lives her life or what she can provide for herself.

After a minute or so, Mia made up her mind. They prayed on the phone. In the end, Mia felt different than before she called. Something changed inside him; something he didn’t fully understand yet. But he knew that things were about to change in a big way.

Thanks to you, stories like Mia’s are happening all over the country. More than 2.1 million moms and dads have heard the Gospel since 2008 and are raising healthy families thanks to your generosity. More than that, your faithful gifts make ministries like Pregnancy Decision Line available to scared moms and dads so they can have those life-changing conversations. But it doesn’t stop there.
