Having over three years under our belt, we’ve spent the last few months re-assessing our model, identifying what’s working well and what’s not. We never want to get stuck in the mentality of “this is how we do it at BH”. We want to change and adapt to the needs of the young women we serve, while never faltering from our commitment to God being the foundation of this ministry.
On November 27, 2016, we welcomed in our first two moms. Since then we have provided a home – shelter, safety, structure and love to 31 young women and their babies. Every stay looks very different but our mission is that each mom experiences the love of Jesus while they are here.
What a privilege it is to witness what God is doing in the lives of the moms at Bethesda House. Often, they need help discovering their God-given gifts and abilities. Our volunteer team pours into each one, helping them discover those beautiful gifts. The love that is poured in individually and collectively to each mom and baby continues to amaze me.
Bethesda House is currently home to 6 moms: 3 pregnant and 3 with children. It’s a lot of work and we need all the help we can get. Read up on how you can make a difference in someone’s life. We are gearing up for another fun-filled soccer tournament and are hosting “Leaders for Life” through our small pro-life focused group Voice for Life. Always lots going on at Bethesda House!
Bethesda House is hosting a meeting for supporters to address ways that our small community can defend life and help defeat a piece of new legislation aiming to allow younger girls access to abortion and making allowances for late-term abortion. We’ve just welcomed a baby girl in recent days and we’re gearing up for our two largest fundraisers coming up this spring and summer.
Happy 2nd Birthday Bethesda House! Nov. 27, 2016 – November 27, 2018! It has been an amazing two years that have absolutely flown by. What a privilege it has been getting to know and love the 17 young women we’ve been blessed to have at Bethesda House in that time.
Moms and babies have moved into our new home and they are LOVING it! Get updates about our moms, an invitation to a new opportunity to pray for the unborn, and a thank you to our amazing supporters who have help us build the new Bethesda House.
As we move closer to the renovations being completed to the new home, we welcome in two new mothers and newborns. Moving plans are underway and we are at 96% of our fundraising goal. God is good!
