For You From The Word
Share with God’s people who are in need. (Romans 12:13, NIV)
For You To Think About
In April 2012, Pro-Life Aggies (a recognized student organization at Texas A & M University, Bryan, TX) hosted a Community Baby Shower outside their local Walmart. Throughout the weekend, students invited shoppers entering the store to purchase diapers, wipes, formula, and baby items to be donated to a local pregnancy resource center.
Truckloads of baby items were contributed and delivered to the local center, along with $700 in financial gifts.
Because the initiative was so successful, the Pro-Life Aggies launched a National Community Baby Shower movement to support pregnancy resource centers. Individuals and groups alike are invited to host a collection event at a local discount department store, a drive at a local church, or a campaign to purchase new /gently-used baby items from Craigslist.
It’s one way campus groups, churches, and organizations can provide material assistance and practical support for pregnant women and their families – and affirm their choice for life.
For You To Pray
Thank You for raising up students to lead in the pro-life movement, particularly those who sponsor Community Baby Showers. Touch hearts all across America. Move them to come together with affirmation and practical support for women and men who face an unplanned pregnancy.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
