A Friend Loves Long-Distance

For You From The Word

A friend loves at all times. (Proverbs 17:17)

For You To Think About

One-on-one pregnancy support can be long-distance.

Jocelyn’s family wanted to keep her pregnancy a secret. They pressured her to get an abortion. Because Jocelyn was isolated, she had no one to talk to about her struggles. She found Birthmothers online and was connected with a Friend who supported her by email.

Karenna was pregnant and incarcerated. She could communicate with others only by snail mail. She was matched with a Friend who wrote to her twice a week, providing support and practical help.

Brooke worked 60 hours a week and was raising her first child when she found out she was unexpectedly pregnant. There wasn’t time to meet face-to-face with someone for support, but she texted and talked on the phone with her Birthmothers Friend every day.

Today’s technology allows Birthmothers Friends to provide support by phone, email, and texts. In many cases, Friends and their matched women lives hundreds of miles apart. A Friend loves at all times … and in all places.

For You To Pray

Gracious Father,
Your love never fails. Thank you that a pregnant woman can experience the unconditional love of a Friend no matter where she may live. Move women to seek to be matched for pregnancy support.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
