It was a traffic jam backed up all the way to Chester. I knew that God was up to something.
When I arrived at Planned Parenthood I saw Manuel on his post serving as he always does. I apologized for not being there sooner. I missed an hour of my shift.
There was a young lady crying in the courtyard. I told her that I would like to talk to her but I can’t come in there. I put my arm around her and walked with her. She was telling me her story and so grateful that we were there.
I called Guiding Star Ministries and they weren’t able to do an interview right away because of an emergency. I then called Pat for openings at Our Ladies House. He said that he would reach out and today the young lady had an interview with them for housing.
She is going to keep her baby.
Be encouraged everyone..No matter what it looks like your presence matters.
