Friends in the Faith,

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  ~Philippians 4:6-7

We have been in a very busy season here at CRADLE.  Many great things are happening!  The Scioto County Fair booth with the private breastfeeding/changing station that CRADLE provided was a huge success and appreciated by so many parents.  We’re grateful for opportunity to help others!  We were able to pass out Bibles, gospel tracts, and CRADLE information to a multitude of individuals.  We had the opportunity to connect with past and current clients, sign-up new clients, and talk with many people from our supporting churches. 

Things in the office have been eventful.  Please keep us and the ministry of CRADLE in your faith filled prayers as we continue in the work of the Lord.  The joy of the Lord is our strength!  We are in the process of reorganizing the Maternity Resource Center to reopen it fully to clients.  There were nine new client sign-ups last month!  We had more client visits in the month of August than we’ve had since January 2020, before quarantine.  The best news of all this month is that three women accepted Jesus as their Saviour!  All three of them got the victory!  Hallelujah!  All the praise goes to Jesus! 

I am so thankful for our staff and volunteers who have a heart to serve God and others, who look for ways to share the Gospel.  I say this all the time, but it is so true, this is a work with eternal rewards.  Only in Heaven will we truly know the reach and the difference each one of us have made for the upbuilding of the Kingdom.  What a precious work we are called to do.  I am so thankful to be a part of this wonderful ministry!  We are currently seeking someone to fill the Client Coordinator position.  We are praying for God to send us who He wants for this important job.  Maybe the person meant for this position goes to your church.  Would you please announce this opening and share the position information with your congregation?  Please join us in prayer that God fills this much-needed position with the person He wants.  Thank you for all that you do to help us!  We are truly grateful for your friendship and support!

The 2023 Walk for Life is just in a few days!  September 9th will be here before we know it!  Registration begins at 8:30am, the Walk will start at 9am.  We hope to see you there for fellowship and in support of life!  There will be plenty of fun for the whole family with live music, prizes, a bouncy house, face painting, balloons, slushy truck, and a delicious food vendor!  Please come out and join us as we celebrate life and lift up the name of Jesus!

All for Jesus,
Mandy Arthur, Executive Director
