1-2019 Miracle of the Month
“Irena” came to Waterleaf feeling confused as she was getting a lot of pressure to abort from the father of the baby as well as her family. She stated she was depressed and unsure but thought she may parent. Her caring advocate and medical team spoke to her about her options including the potential after-effects of abortion. She had an early ultrasound and agreed to return in a few weeks for a follow-up appointment and another chance to see her baby. Irena returned and felt much more confident in parenting after seeing the beautiful image of her baby on the screen and speaking again to the Waterleaf team!
Recently, Irena called us and excitedly shared the announcement of the birth of her beautiful baby girl. She stated “when I saw my daughter something alive rose inside of me and I remember the very first time I heard her heart beat at your location and started crying not knowing what I was going to do. Nine months later, I’m still in disbelief. Thank you for the counseling, thank you for the opportunity to hear her heartbeat for the very first time.”

The Global Bag Project is under Chapel of the Air Ministries
A 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is helping widowed and married women in Kenya support themselves and their children by selling their reusable shopping bags, aprons, cloth napkins and placemats, and padded computer bags. Each woman goes through a one year training course. They are trained both in sewing and bookkeeping. At the end of their training, they receive a sewing machine on loan. After they have successfully starting their own sewing business, they pay back 70 percent of the sewing machine that was given to them at the end of their training.
