Review for Rockville Pregnancy Center, Inc., Rockville, MD, USA
Working at The Rockville Pregnancy Center has BY FAR been the most inspiring work I have ever done!
Being an "at risk" young lady myself many years ago, I would see myself in the young women that came in.
The first question I would ask them was, "How's your relationship with your father?" MOST of them would say that they did NOT know him or that they don't see him often. Some would say they lived with him but could NOT confide in him.
My second question was, "How is your faith in God?" The answer often had a STRONG resemblance to their relationship with their earthly father.
I would share how I realized that my relationship with my earthly father had affected my relationship with God and how I saw Him.
I would share my testimony with them about how after coming to know Jesus Christ as my Father and how He is so vastly different from our earthly father, my life RADICALLY changed. I shared how He filled the deep void I had in my heart and healed the pain I was trying to numb with alcohol, drugs, and unhealthy relationships.
I saw the same desperation in their eyes that I once experienced and the longing to know that they had a father that would care for them, bless them, and love them unconditionally.
I was in TOTAL awe of how God used me to lead AT LEAST one young lady to invite Christ into her life and heart before I finished my shift.
The Rockville Pregnancy Center allowed me the freedom to share the love of Jesus Christ, which I knew personally was the ONLY love that could fill the void in their hearts and turn their lives around.
One young woman came in; and, when I asked her about her faith in God, she said that she was agnostic. After sharing my testimony and the gospel, she asked Christ into her heart 20 minutes later. She sent me a message last Mother's Day saying that because of what took place at the Rockville Pregnancy Center, she was able to celebrate Mother's day with her baby girl, which she had opted NOT to abort after accepting Jesus Christ into her heart. She and the father of her baby had also decided to get married!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
experiencing God taking my "personal pain" from the past and turning it into "a gift", which He used to help me understand and reach the hurting women that came through the doors of The Rockville Pregnancy Center and offer them the love and gospel of Jesus Christ.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
place one in EVERY city. I met many young ladies that traveled very long distances by bus to reach the Rockville Pregnancy Center.
