Any Woman Can

Any Woman Can, another FPC partner in the KRL, is continuing to serve on their main campus location. Denise, AWC’s Director of Nursing (pictured here) shared a story of celebration with us as she met with a young woman who was considering termination of her pregnancy. Here is a quote from her message: “Guys, she’s gonna carry her baby! She was willing to go outside state lines for an abortion and she changed her mind. 10 week baby put on a show & waved. It was great! God is good. In tears as I type this….” We are thankful for these warriors for life who are in the trenches with us!
