Rachel’s Vineyard – Stevens Point, WI

 

After a little over a year of work and prayers, I have been approved: our state has a NEW Rachel’s Vineyard site, located in Stevens Point, Wisconsin!*

Rachel’s Vineyard seeks to facilitate healing for those suffering from the loss of abortion.  This includes women and men who have lost children through abortion; but also includes grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, friends, etc. The primary outreach is through weekend retreats, 1 -2 times per year.  The process is designed to help the individual to find, and accept, the forgiveness of Christ–to reconcile with Him and receive healing.

We need: 
– Volunteers
– Donations
– Most of all, PRAYER

For more information, or to get involved, please contact me (Lisa) at 715-204-9561, or rvstevenspoint@gmail.com.

Or, find our Page on Facebook, and our Prayer Partners Group on Facebook.

If you’re not on Facebook, and would like to join the Prayer Partners group, please let me know. I’ve written a prayer, specifically for our site, which we’d love to have our Prayer Partners say as often as they can (daily, if at all possible.)
Please feel free to join us:

O Loving and Merciful God,
We pray for Your blessings upon Rachel’s Vineyard, and particularly for the new site in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.  We ask that You will fill the hearts of all those involved in this ministry with compassion for those who are suffering because of abortion.  May we never condemn them for their decision, but rather, reach out to them in love—in order to help them find, and accept, Your forgiveness and healing.  Please help those who are unaware of Rachel’s Vineyard, but in need of its help, to find it; and strengthen those who are afraid to call, to take that risk.  Please help the team members to humbly empty themselves and thus allow the Holy Spirit to work through them, to accomplish Your healing work in those whom they serve.  
We ask this through Your Son, Our Most Gracious Savior, Jesus Christ.

Amen.

If you live in Wisconsin, and want to know more about us, or would like to get involved, please give me a call, or send an email. If you know anyone who is suffering from the loss of abortion, please share our contact information with them.

Thank you to everyone who has been praying for this effort….and please continue to keep our new site in your prayers!

 

*Although initially my husband and I both had applied to be site facilitators, we decided that due to the fact that he is an OTR Truck Driver, he may not always be available to be a part of the retreats. Also, due to his schedule, I am basically going to be doing most of the work in the end. Finally, since we both would have had to do a retreat as part of a team at an existing site, and I’d already done that, we decided to just move ahead with me as facilitator, to make this happen as soon as possible. He will be on the team, and of course, an integral part of the site. 🙂
