Vision for 2022:
We will continue to serve our clients with love, respect, and compassion as always. We have certainly overcome many obstacles in the past few years. We stand eager to assist in ways that will enrich the lives of families in our community and beyond. Our online platform for classes continues to be widely utilized. There are now over 200 classes that we are able to send directly to clients via email or text to complete. These are in addition to in-center classes that we have available.
Ultrasound has been an amazing tool we are able to offer to clients. The popular saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” doesn’t compare to the amazing ability to see a real live baby moving inside the womb. Each client and support person has seen the wonderful work of our Heavenly Father. We are beyond thankful to have resumed this service. God always provides to complete His perfect will. With the continued generosity of our donors, we are confident in our ability to offer this valuable service.
|Pathways’ newest arrival|
|We are blessed to welcome these little ones just coming into the world. All of our mamas that have given birth during the pandemic endured more stress and struggle than ever before! We are proud of each and every one of them. We continue to walk beside each of our clients in every way possible. From in-center visits to online classes, material assistance, support in many other areas, and more! We want to thank you for partnering with us in this special journey. Please keep the center’s staff, volunteers, and clients in your prayers. In addition, your financial contribution is extremely appreciated in continuing the work of our Heavenly Father.|
In closing, please keep the Hastings family in your prayers. Our longtime friend and volunteer, Kevin Hastings has joined our Heavenly Father. May God bless this family with comfort and peace.
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:13)
