Baby Caleb joined the FMC family on 6-22 at 6lbs 14 oz and 19 ¾ inches. He is enjoying his first few days back at FMC with mom, and we are excited to watch him grow!
Thank you to all who have been diligently praying for the safe arrival of triplet girls. God heard those prayers and Ashlyn, Braylyn, and Caitlyn burst into the world on 6-17. The girls were all between 4 and 5 pounds and none needed emergency breathing assistance, even though they were premature.
We are excited to announce the arrival of Ki’andra! Ki’andra was born 5-30 and weighed 6lbs 3 oz and was 20 inches long. She is enjoying life with her mom, big brother, and big sister!
We are hoping to raise $8,000 in May to purchase a larger, 15 passenger van. If 200 people are willing to give just $40 we can meet our goal and be better able to serve all of the women in our growing ministry!
The ministry has been growing! We are now able to house five residents, as well as expectant mothers with young children, have seen a huge increase in non-residents requesting services, and have opened a satellite campus in Montgomery City. I am so excited to see these changes take place, and see the way God has been working to save the lives of unborn babies through His ministry at FMC.
We have one more big change to make this year, and would like to ask for your prayers as we move forward. The ministry has grown to a size where it is now vital to have a full-time Executive Director. I have greatly enjoyed my two years serving as Executive Director; however, as my husband and I eagerly anticipate the birth of our second child in two years, I am feeling the call to stay home with my family and believe that the ministry will benefit from a Director who is able to devote full-time hours to the job at hand.
I know that God has a plan for Faith Maternity Care, and I am excited to see it continue to grow under the direction of a new Executive Director. Please pray with us as we begin this search. Please, also, feel free to share this information with your family, friends, and any individuals you believe might be a good fit for this ministry. We need to have a new director in place by the end of August, but are ready to hire the right person whenever he/she is found.
If you have any questions or would like more information on the position, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Laura Griggs, Executive Director
We are excited to announce the arrival of Laine! Laine was born 3-14-14 and weighed 7 lbs 12 oz and was 21 inches long. What a precious little boy he is!
