At the beginning of this year, I made a goal for myself of reading through the Bible in a year.  Remarkably, I am currently reading through Exodus and have not fallen behind in my reading plan.  I have been stuck by God’s direction and provision in the creation of His tabernacle.  God gave Moses precise directions in how the tabernacle and all its accessories were to be constructed.  God rose up men who He filled with the “Spirit of God, with ability and intelligence, with knowledge and all craftsmanship” to build His tabernacle.  God even stirred the hearts of the Israelites to be generous in giving the gold, silver, bronze and all the other material necessary to build His tabernacle.  God’s people were so generous that Moses had to tell them to stop giving because they had more than enough to complete God’s design. 

I am Chairman of the Board of Directors for a local Pregnancy Resource Center and we have our own project before us.  We are undertaking the steps necessary for the Center to provide ultrasound testing to our clients.    These steps are many and large.  However, we are confident that through God’s provision each step will be accomplished to His glory.  We, as the Board of Directors, are confident in the direction that God is leading the Center.  Now, we are reliant upon God providing us with individuals of ability, intelligence, knowledge and all craftsmanship and the generosity of the Body of Christ.

It has been awesome to see God provide us with our own Bezalef (See Exodus 31:2) in the form of a retired General Contractor who has agreed to volunteer as our General Contractor for the project.  We are now anxiously awaiting God providing other people who have skills and ability in construction to come around “our Bezalef” to help him accomplish this task.  I have heard many times from a variety of people that they believe in the ministry of the Center but they just do not know how they can be involved.  The construction of the new Center will allow us to provide ultrasound services.  I am fully confident that many of our clients when they are informed of the viable pregnancy within them will choose life for their child.  Every person involved in the construction of the Center, down to the last nail driven, will have the privilege of having a part in God’s work of protecting that unborn child.

The other very necessary component is the required materials to construct the Center.  In this day and age, that means money.  My humble request to all supporters of the ministry of the Pregnancy Resource Center is to prayerfully consider whether God is rising up within you a “generous heart” for this ministry and project.  We cannot do this project without the financial resources.  Those with a “generous heart” for this ministry are essential to this project.  Every check written for the Center is a statement about the sanctity of human life. 

I am so very encouraged and excited about this project.  The support that the Center has already received regarding pursuing ultrasound services has been overwhelming.  Now it is time for the Body of Christ to move from “words and talk” onto “actions and deeds”.  Please prayerfully consider how God may be intending to use you through this project for His glory.
