Compassion. Hope. Help. This has been our theme for the last 12 months as we launched our medical clinic in June 2021.
COMPASSION: The Latin word compati means to suffer with. That is what we do. We feel what our clients are feeling and ‘suffer’ along with them.
HOPE: “a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.” “For I know
the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil,
to give you a future and a hope. These words ring true every time we help encourage a
young woman that she can do this. We offer hope and help in Christ. The best hope
anyone can receive.
This is who we are, and how we serve the women, men and families that come to PCS. We have had the blessing of being able to show ‘life in the womb’ to so many since attaining our medical license. Many have chosen life due to seeing the little heart beating, the hands, fingers, and toes of their little one, alive and well growing in God’s grace, mercy, and love.
We had a young woman come in, afraid of the unknown that comes along with an unplanned pregnancy. I met with her, caringly showing her how we could support her if she chooses to keep her child. Then during the ultrasound appointment, Peggy was able to show her the little heart beating inside...at only 6 weeks. The “window to the womb.” There was a silence in the room. No words needed to be spoken...just the little flicker of the heart beating 158 beats per minute. Growing. Thriving. Being divinely knit within her womb.
After discussing her options, speaking with her about her options. With a heavy heart, she and her support person left. Weeks went by. Then prompted by the Holy spirit, I knew I had to reach out to her. She answered and when I told her who was calling, I knew the moment she started to speak...she was choosing life for her baby. She said she had decided to keep the baby and was so grateful for what we were able to show her. Her journey will not be easy, but she knows we are here to help her along, giving a lifeline when needed most.
