The day to day work of the mobile ministry team is not always joyful, but, today, we had a very special assignment. We delivered gifts and toys to the family of a newborn baby boy. Baby C is a direct result of our mobile ministry. He is the first documented baby born who was saved from abortion because of the mobile unit.
Baby C’s mother was referred to us by her OB doctor. Although she lives in a different town, we were able to meet her in the mobile unit near to her workplace. When she came on board the unit, she was certain abortion was her only option. After receiving information and support including a free ultrasound of her 7 ½ week old baby and seeing his little heart beating, she realized she wanted nothing more than to protect and care for her baby.
As we held and kissed Baby C, today, and hugged his mother, she repeated over and over, “I’m so thankful I had him.” She admitted that early on she had not wanted him, but now, she can’t imagine life without him. She said he has impacted her entire family for the better.
If you are interested in volunteering on our mobile unit, please call the Center 252.446.2273.
There are numerous reasons why I am eager and enthusiastic about supporting Your Choice Pregnancy Resource Center. Put simply, Jesus loves saving lives. Through compassionate care, many of the men and women are choosing life for their child, and they are choosing eternal life through Christ. Thank God for a ministry that is holistic in helping people physically and spiritually.
Teenage pregnancies have been reduced, and the sanctity of marriage is being protected. In addition to mothers, the Center reaches out to fathers by counseling and listening to them. They understand the mother’s decision often hinges on the support of the father. Thank God that the Center’s work doesn’t stop at the birth of the child. They support the mother and child up to a year after birth.
As a business owner, I think it’s my responsibility to support organizations that enhance the quality of life for our local community.
God is working mightily at Your Choice Pregnancy Resource Center. Will you join Him?

Staff Spotlight is Shining on Delphine Martin
Delphine is the first person you see when you come into or call the Center. Her official title is Client Services Specialist, but she wears many hats and, as she puts it, “rides on the wings of flexibility.” When she is not working she enjoys flower gardening, spending time with her family including taking care of her mom. You will also find her studying and reading God’s Word along with praying and worshiping. Delphine first learned about the Center when a co-worker suggested they take the volunteer training. She felt this was a good fit because she loved helping young people and considered herself a people person. The rest is history as she has now been a part of the Center for over 18 years! When asked what she enjoyed most about the Center she responded, “knowing that God can use me in such a small way to share a smile, hope and encouragement to those who come into the Center; whether it’s a client or someone just needing information.” Delphine encourages anyone interested in volunteering to seek God and pray about what area He would have them serve and then to schedule an appointment with our Client Services Director to get more information about the Center, its mission and purpose. We asked her if she could have any superpower, what it would be. She responded, “To share the Word of God with boldness to everyone and not be ashamed that Jesus Christ is Lord.” She is challenged each day to remember that she may not be able to help everyone, but is thankful for the divine appointments that God graciously provides to be there for the ones He does send her way.
