Mission Partner Stories

Mission Partners exists because a small group of already established pregnancy resource organizations joined together. Read these stories of how some began their partnership.

HandsA church in Colorado had been supporting their local pregnancy center for a number of years.  One of the leaders heard about Mission Partnering with Lydia in Macedonia.  Although they had conducted a Baby Bottle fundraiser annually for the local center during the month of January, they decided to have another Baby Bottle campaign in the summer to support Lydia.  We sent them the bottles, inserts, and posters to promote the campaign.  After the first campaign we asked them to keep the bottles, and told them we would supply more as well as new materials for the event the next year.  They raised over $8,000 in two years with a simple and easy event.  And by the way, the January campaign for the local center grew as well.

The executive director of a local pregnancy center approached one of the churches that regularly supports their ministry to tell them about the desire to help Lydia.  She knew one of the primary focuses of that church was to support international missions.  The church increased its giving by $200 per month just so the local center could Mission Partner with us to support Lydia in Macedonia. A simple ask turned into a regular supporter.

The director of a pregnancy center in the states met one of Lydia’s staff members at last year’s Heartbeat Conference.  She took the information about Mission Partnering to her leadership team, and they agreed to start sending Lydia a regular monthly financial gift.  They are now one of eight pregnancy centers that count themselves as Mission Partners with Lydia.
