Summer is usually thought of as a slower time of year, but we’ve found it
brings busy times at Heart Choices. Beginning early in June (and before)preparations began for the Fireworks Stand. This was our 7th year andproved to be the best ever with sales nearly doubled from last year. We areso grateful to every volunteer who helped and every person who chose tosupport our tent with their fireworks purchases.With little time to rest between, we began recruitingworkers for the Lemonade Stand at the Mitchell CountyFair (July 28-31), and before that has even taken place,details are being finalized for the 2010 Walk-Run 4 Life onSeptember 26. Whew! Makes me tired just writing it.Fundraising is a part of our ministry, and likely will alwaysbe. The simple truth is that if we want to strengthenour outreach, finding funding is a part of that process.It is exciting to see how God has already strengthenedthe outreach of Heart Choices, allowing us to serve women and men inBeloit as well as other communities. I am happy to say Heart Choices isnow seeing clients by appointment in Concordia. We have been blessed topartner with agencies there and in other towns who see the importance of pregnancy counseling and education from a life-affirming perspective.Appointments for Concordia are made by calling the Beloit office. Althoughthese opportunities sometimes stretch our staffing, we know that makingservices available on a more local basis is meeting needs for more youngmothers and their families.Once again, the need for additional funding and personnel increases, butGod has always been faithful to provide our needs through people just likeyou. We are blessed to have development directors and board memberswho are committed to doing what is necessary to assure women, families,and teens in the North Central Kansas area are given every possibleopportunity to make healthy life choices related to their sexuality and child-bearing, consistent with the sanctity of human life.At our annual board meeting in April, we said goodbye to two founding boardmembers. Max Deets served as the first president of the board of directorsof Heartbeat Pregnancy Center, Inc. His leadership and spiritual sensitivitywere invaluable to the foundation of this ministry. Mary Fugate will continueto direct the Sexual Integrity program as she has done excellently for thepast 8 years. Through school presentations, overnight retreats, and now anew training for parents, young people are equipped, encouraged, andchallenged toward a life of purity and good health.Whether you can give, volunteer, or pray, your participation in this ministry isneeded! The future of our young people and our families depends on it.
Please join us and be a part of the team that’s making a difference in hearts
and lives in your community!
