Walk for Life 2016

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
Matthew 19:14

Children are precious to God. He shows this time and time again throughout the Bible. We are told to have faith like a child, to protect the fatherless, to take care not to lead children astray.

The unspeakably horrible practice of abortion must be absolutely heart-breaking to our King who values children and human life so highly. He knew us before we were born, while we were still in our mother's wombs. He knew every little thing about us and loved us completely.

As His workers, it is our job to spread God's kingdom throughout this earth through both evangelism and good works. The Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) of Radford, Virginia does this by striving to protect the little children of the world on a daily basis.

The PRC provides many resources and services for women with unplanned pregnancies and shows them that choosing not to abort the unborn children within them is both right and possible.

They not only provide counseling and such services as ultrasounds for free, they also work to care for their clients' physical needs in the form of supplies such as diapers and wipes. Babies can be both expensive and overwhelming and having someone there to help and guide both spiritually and physically is a real blessing to many new mothers.

Throughout the year, the PRC must continually raise funds to sustain their ministry and two major fundraisers provide most of the resources for the year. One is the Baby Bottle Campaign, where churches hand out empty baby bottles to their members to be filled with loose change and returned a few weeks later.

The second is the Walk for Life, where "walkers" ask for sponsors for a few months before meeting to walk two miles together. The Walk for Life this year is April 30 at Bisset Park in Radford. My siblings and I are participating as part of a team with our Youth Group.

The PRC's overall goal for this event is to raise $35,000. At the time of this post, they are only 9% of the way there. My personal goal is $1000 of which I have raised $50.

Please consider whether you can support the PRC this year either by sponsoring a walker, becoming a walker, or (especially) praying!
