Mission Partners PRO (Pregnancy Resource Organizations) is dedicated to supporting pregnancy centers around the world and making their ministry to the unborn possible. In many countries the abortion rate is many times higher than in the United States, yet financial support is staggeringly low. Many communities throughout the world are unable to fund their own pregnancy centers.
What Pregnancy Centers is Mission Partners PRO currently supporting?
It is our goal to facilitate the support of many throughout the US directly to the various pregnancy centers this ministry supports, all of which are currently located in Macedonia. Lydia – A Beating Heart is located in an area where the abortion rate is 2.5 times higher than in the US.
What Does Lydia – A Beating Heart’s Ministry Look Like?
Founded in 2012, Lydia is the first and only pregnancy center in the country of Macedonia. The first location was in Stip, followed by a second one opening in the capital city of Skopje. Lydia Centers currently have a satellite location open in a third town, with plans to partner with Centers in other towns and neighboring countries in the Balkans area.
The Lydia Centers offer pregnancy counseling and baby items to women facing unplanned pregnancies. The ministry has been blessed with being able to purchase a car to take the ministry’s resources to the streets and help those throughout the country. The Lydia team provides diapers, clothing, baby items and pregnancy tests to show the love of Christ in action. Pregnant women and babies are helped each day!
From 2013-2017, Lydia was invited to counsel every abortion-minded woman who has scheduled an abortion at their local hospital. They still have a relationship with the staff at the hospitals, and are available should such an invitation be extended again.
The Lydia team provides education outreach and information to the community at various events.
Through the generous support of Mission Partners International, Lydia Centers are able to provide pregnancy services and baby items to women in their communities facing unplanned pregnancies.
