This year we praise God for ending Roe v. Wade, allowing many states to end abortion. This decision is a massive trigger to countless millions who have been in denial about the truth of abortion. If abortion was “safe and legal,” many post-abortive women could believe it was a “right” choice. Now that it is no longer legal in many states, some post abortive women are realizing it was “wrong.” Based on the multitude of contacts our ministry has received since this decision, it is obvious God’s revival has begun. God is bringing spiritual and emotional freedom to abortion’s wounded hearts, using Ramah International in that process!
Ramah has been preparing for this revival since our inception in 1997. Thankfully, we have our website, HerChoicetoHeal.com, available to the world – the only complete online abortion recovery program in existence that is free to use with no log-in requirements. It has reached millions since 2017, helping hearts address this pain privately with God. We have been blessed to help many who reach out to us as well. Because of your support in praying for us, sending tax-deductible financial gifts, and participating in abortion recovery programs at the local level, God has set multitudes free of this pain! Thank you!
We were blessed this year to return to training pregnancy center workers in reaching abortion-vulnerable hearts and in abortion recovery leadership. We met many who had used HerChoicetoHeal.com exclusively in their own healing process who are tangibly helping others. We heard from many who used the printed Her Choice to Heal abortion recovery program too. Their encouragement made my heart sing as God’s hand on their lives was so obvious.
Our new Her Choice to Heal channel on youtube.com, featuring many outreach videos for those impacted by this pain, launched this year. Topics like Taming Triggers of Abortion Pain, Why You Cannot Forget the Child You Lost to Abortion and Forgiving Yourself for Aborting are packed with hope and information. Be sure to subscribe to this YouTube channel. We welcome your prayers/financial support for our video production as they make God’s love tangible.
Let me share about the impact of two of our newest resources. Beyond Regret: Living Victoriously in Christ After Abortion helps women dig deeper into their healing to address the other traumas that led them to an abortion clinic. Here is one leader’s insight – I was just reading Beyond Regret, where you talk about how humans never get over grief. We simply get through it. We learn to cope and endure. That really speaks to my heart. This is a difficult time as the anniversary of my abortion is coming up…. I don’t think anyone understands these feelings and thoughts but you and some of the post abortive women who have experienced similar struggles. I pray that God will continue to bless your ministry as He knows it is so needed in our broken world. Thank you for your prayers.
Ramah now exclusively helps other demographics who experience abortion’s pain. Legacy Lost: Healing Abortion’s Heartache in Grandparents was the perfect resource for this woman who contacted us for help – I only contacted a couple groups online. You were the only one I heard back from so far and you’re telling me that Ramah is the only organization who does this type of ministry for grandparents in the whole world……I’m floored…. God is directing our steps despite this very intense pain. It is good to know He has heard us. Thank you so much.
This year all our resources (books, workbooks, booklets, etc.) were made available through Amazon.com. We have been able to reach many more internationally as well as in the USA. This allows these resources to be mailed in-country, avoiding massive postage rates. These products also now come up on different search engines, allowing us to reach many more lives with the hope of God’s healing after abortion.
Over the last 31 years of ministry, God has used my testimony to spare many lives from abortion’s fate. I have no clue as to the exact number saved. What I remember are those who still chose abortion. Last April, one mother I had been working with determined to abort. I was unable to prevent this tragedy. In surrendering this child and mother to God’s will and care, I learned the lessons again that I teach – to continue to offer His hope of healing regardless of the choices our clients make. We also take time to grieve these lost children. We must trust God, even when the child is lost, realizing He has a plan despite the brokenness we all endure.
Our online school for training in abortion recovery ministry, and individuals helping those considering abortion, will be launched in 2023 via our pregnancycentertraining.com website. Much of the video work is done with God’s hand all over the content. Please watch for emails announcing this new platform and pray for our efforts. This training will be the first of its kind in educating people around the globe in helping abortion’s victims find God’s hope!
As the end of 2022 approaches, I ask you to prayerfully consider supporting Ramah International with a tax-deductible year-end donation. Marketing HerChoicetoHeal.com, and the development/launch of our online school, are a few of the NEW funding needs. I know our firm foundation will result in countless lives impacted for Christ. Here is a link for you to use in donating – https://ramahinternational.org/donate-ramah-international/. We promise to sow your gift deep into God’s fertile soil to produce His blessings back into your life!
In closing, I leave you with our 2023 mission verse from Isaiah 61:1-5 -The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.
As God puts us on your heart, please remember our efforts in your prayers and let us know if we can help you in any way! We are praying for you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
