Abortion Prevention Counselor Training

Abortion was extremely common in Soviet times.  Today the rate is somewhat lower than it was 20 years ago, however, Ukraine, Moldova and Russian still have a higher rate of abortion than Western Europe and the US.

It’s a problem the church must face and offer a solution to. In the past many churches didn’t know where to start and with the exception of a rare mention in a sermon there was no concrete help offered.  However, reaching out to pregnant women and girls is just one way that the church in Ukraine can show love and provide real hope for people.

Soon many churches will have an effective tool to combat abortion and to offer the hope of Jesus to young women and their families!

Learning how to counsel girls who find themselves pregnant

Counselor training seminar led by missionary Holly Friesen

Yesterday our team-mate, Holly Friesen, began the counselor training program that will prepare those who will be serving in the pregnancy care center called, “Choose Life”.

Holly along with Dr Miriam Wheeler are working hard to get this new ministry up and running.  They need your prayers this week as they train possible counselors for the pregnancy care center.
