What a start to a new year!!! When I arrived there was Martha & Frank already here. I came in & then walked into the office & all of a sudden a loud ringing occurred & it was awful. It got louder & louder & I couldn't hear. We were trying to look at what this was & it keep on ringing. I called the Security Company & they said that they couldn't turn it off because it wasn;t on. Okay I said what do I do now? They sent someone to come to check out the problem. He turned off the security system & looked around & then said "Mary, it was your mega phone". "What" I said with dismay. Yes it was the mega phone that mysteriously went off & didn't shut off until Matha pulled the warm batteries out. I thanked the man who came & while he was here he changed the time on the security alarm. It all worked out nevertheless.
I had a client that was having some trouble with our rules & then she said to Frank 'is it because I'm Black"? "No", he said back, my Son in Law is Black & my Grandson. I said to her that we love & care about you. She settled down now. Little dose the people that come into Focus know about us for my sisters children & Black children.
We are NOT Racist !!!
We were somewhat busy for the rest of the day. Linda & Jackie came in to help us today.

It was a more quitter day today :)) We worked hard to make sure that Focus is helping many people. Linda has come in & cleaned & it looks sooooo good!! She is such a hard worker. Thank you Lord.
Our clients are appreciative of us & we try to assist them the best that we can.
Linda came in with her friend Bettey a Mental Health Nurse. Martha was that too at one time but has retired. They had a lot to talk about. She liked helping us out at Focus!!! We will see her again next week......thanks Betty!!!
Our client was sick so she didn't go for her ultrasound today, & we made another appointment for her, for next week. She is post abortive x2 so we are careful to keep in touch with her.

We had Tim, who came in with a large donation, move the two tables along with Barb & Martha. We are rearranging our main room. Looks soooo good!!! I am so very happy to what Focus looks like now....changes make the difference!!
We had a client that was helped by Women's Care Center with a car seat & A pack n play & a Layette. The mom wasn't ready when baby decided to come a week early. I called Hollie & she said that we are working together & I agreed. This is so wonderful to be able to work with other pregnancy centers. Team work......... They give away car seats & we hand out formula.........
Martha did a pregnancy test & it was Negative. Educational literature & DVD's were given. We want our client to go to Heaven!!!

Parkin our cars was somewhat difficult but I got through the parking lot across the street. Hope I can get out. Martha & Frank were her so we had enough people to help our clients.
A woman came in for diapers & she said that she was here less than a week ago so I just reminded her that we did not supply your monthly diaper supply so she left with a huff. We are trying to make them independent not dependent. I told her we were here for a necessity. Hope she understands.
We had a steady stream of client that came in for many different things. Martha did a pregnancy test & she was Negative so she was given the appropriate information. I got to talk to her boyfriend who was waiting for her in the main room. No sex until marriage!! They usually say to me "I know". God's rules don't change.
Matha called two of our clients to remind them of their ultra sound appointment tomorrow at Embracing Options. Neyoka did a pregnancy test yesterday & it was Positive & called in for an ultra sound appointment tomorrow. Hope that they both show up!!
A client came in who had her baby real early baby was born 1 lb. 12 oz. & is now over 3 lbs.. Will be coming home soon. What an adventure for the mother. Came in to receive some things for her son.

Death of Brittany Coombs
Many people came in today & Martha helped them. We had Elizabeth, from St. John Bosco School, & her children come in to help us. Quite a productive team. Barb came in too.
I had to call Neyoka to tell her that Brittany was no longer with us & she was upset too. A sad day for us at Focus!!!
A woman, from the Pathway Houses of Rochester, New York, which is affiliated with Syracuse Behavioral Heath Care (SBH) for alcohol & drug abuse treatment. We now have any agency, that can help our clients, in need. They are located on University Ave. by Wegmans, not far from us. Good referral.

Saying good bye to Sarah!!!
I got my hair cut today so no one will recognize me. Martha & Sarah liked it but I need some time to get used to it for I had long hair for such a long time. Oh well.....
It was a good afternoon for Frank was with us & he gave us lunch. When I came in I had to say "good-bye" to Sarah, who will be going, with her husband Guillaume & Helen & baby Louise, to live in France. She will come back to Rochester to see her parents & us again sometime this year. We will greatly miss her & her family!!!! We were blessed with her presence :)))
Martha is tired today she is a morning person who wakes up at 6am. No wonder~~~
Adolf was here today, for he was in the hospital, for surgery, he looks good!
Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at Focus
I got to Focus late because I had to go to the Post Office & to the bank for Focus & then to Tops for formula, diapers & sidewalk salt. I also had to go to Subway for lunch via a request form Martha. I am so grateful that I have Martha, Linda, Frank, Jackie, Lynda & Linda, so I do treat them well. Cannot do without them!!!! We had to park on the street so I had to get quarters for the meters. Cannot wait for the free parking lot to clear up. Tim was here after a drop off of donations & he shoveled the front sidewalk for us too.
Martha called a client who had a Positive pregnancy test on Friday but left quickly so Neyoka couldn't talk with her about an ultrasound. She said that she called & spoke with her yesterday & had the impression that her husband did not want this precious baby & asked her to come into Focus today to speak with Martha or I. She did not come so I asked Martha to call her & she did & she is now scheduled for an ultrasound for tomorrow at 12:15 pm. She knows where His Branches Medical Center is & does not need a ride. Hopefully she & her husband will show up!!!!!!
Martha called the two clients that did not go for their ultrasound appointments last week. Cannot reach them :(((
Linda & Linda came today to help us & Frank has now gone home. We will see Jackie in 2 weeks. Her son is getting married & she & her husband will take a vacation to Florida for 1 week. We do miss her :(( We also miss Sarah who we said good bye to last week. Hopefully we will see her when she goes to visit her family in the summertime.

It was a hectic afternoon but we got through it, thank God!!! We saw many clients today & most of them needed formula. Lynda was here & she was kept busy too. I took a message off of the office answering machine & it was our client who was scheduled for an ultrasound today, said she had a flat tire, & couldn't get there. Martha called her & we rescheduled her for tomorrow, Thursday, at 11:30 am. Jessica will pick her up at 11 am for she needed a ride.
Tim came & dropped off more donations & took out the trash cans for pick up tomorrow. We measured the floor for water proof carpets that will hopefully help with the water problem form the boots.
Linda came around 4:30 to help us out & she will be here for an hour. So much to do!!!!
Our next Focus Newsletter is done. You can look at it:
Thank you Gene for a fantastic newsletter!!!!
Thursday, January 18, 2018 at Focus
It was a frustrating day for me. First, I went to the Post Office to see if we had any mail for Focus when I asked why I am not notified, as before if we had mail. I didn't get much help. The Supervisor did give me a email address but nothing more. The man behind the counter said that they stopped the notification process & the Supervisor said that they renewed the program & we were probably thrown out......REALLY!!!
Then I went into Tops market to get baby formula & all they had was two cans left. I said "what" please order more formula because I run a pregnancy center & I depend on Tops to supply formula, for our clients. I went to look for something else & they didn't have it. This is a store????
When I got to Focus there was a family, that has come in for several years now, so I asked them to speak English, for you live in America. I wanted to see what their situation was in order to assist them better but I can't communicate with them.. I spoke to one of the ladies with a "I don't speak English" phrase. Are you kidding........
I called USPS after looking at their website USPC.com & was on the phone waiting for 60 minutes. Thank God I have enough minutes on my phone & I did some work while on speaker phone. All I want is to be notified for mail from our PO Box, as before & no one can help me :((((( Finally got through & spoke with the Supervisor & I have to wait until they come to me for the PO notification.
A woman came in for formula which a friend told her we have. Martha asked her some questions & she is not on WIC & works, with a pay check, coming in every other week. Because we are low on formula, I asked Martha to ask the client to buy some, as she said that's what she does. We are an emergency supplier, not I have to pay my bills so I will get free formula, agency. Baby first mom!! Maybe I'm looking at this wrong :((
I was thinking of a past client today & she came in to see us. She is post abortive x2 & she put us through a lot trying to save her second baby, with a lot of tomfoolery. After she did abort her precious 15 week baby at Wortman's because he could put her out I didn't talk with her until on day I answered the phone & she said that she need things for she will deliver in two weeks. She came in today & I asked her if she has been getting help post abortively & she said "no". I asked if I could give her some literature & she said "yes". She said that she referred us to her friend that was soon to deliver her baby. We hugged & she left with a thank you & a smile on her face. Thank you Lord that Christina is doing better :))) Embracing Options will send me some information on post abortion healing.
Our client did go for her ultrasound but she doesn't know who the father is & if it's the one guy she might abort because he's crazy. What!!!! Embracing Options is also working with this mom to save her child's life. Thy spoke with her for a time & they will contact her when the test is revealed late January.
Barb came to measure the floor for waterproof rugs & she wants now to move the table....what! So much going on when I just asked for a waterproof rug......but the room will look better. I must be open to other suggestions!!!
Daniel Beyer, came in from Monroe Plan, & he was a delight. Such a nice young man. He will come back for more items for his clients. MIMO, referred him to us. Thank you Maria W..
A young man came in to get somethings for himself, he has no children. He asked Linda if he could take the statue of the Blessed Mother Mary & she said "yes" & asked if he was Catholic which he replied that he was. I gave him How to Make a Good Confession & the Catechism of the Catholic Church
plus the 10 Commandments & a Rosary. He was so nice & he will continue to be a good Cathloic!!! A breath of fresh air for men :))

Spectrum TV News reporter, Breon Martin, called me yesterday, Roe vs. Wade 45 years of killing children day, for an interview. I gave the news reporter Mike Warren's name & I called him but he was in Illinois so he couldn't be contacted for the interview. Then I thought of Jim Havens & called him & he said that he would be at St. Mark's Church for a Holy Hour & he would give the interview there. I called back the reporter & gave him Jim's cell number. I watched Spectrum News, with the same news over & over again, until 11:10 pm to watch Jim give his interview along with the abortionist, Rachael Phelps, at Planned Parenthood, & the NOW people gathering at the Unitarian church on Winton Rd.. I am familiar, for this is the place, that they always meet. It was hard to listen to their mixed up deceptive words, so Evil.
This is what Jim had written on the Spectrum Facebook.
I was interviewed for this story yesterday and it seems to me in the final cut that aired, the best points were left out. I take the opportunity to share them here:
1. Our community has experienced the disastrous results of abortion. Obviously the tremendous loss of life, but also the tremendous number of women who have experienced the horrible pain of abortion: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. If you have experienced the pain and hurt of abortion, there is a community here to love on you and help you. Please think about attending a Rachel's Vineyard or a Project Rachel, Help after Abortion retreat to help you process what you've been through and receive some real healing.
2. Abortion has nothing to do with health care. Abortion is one big lie. The lie of abortion tells women who are in unplanned and/or unsupported pregnancies and who are dealing with real difficulties, to wrongly perceive that their child is the problem and, to such a degree, that they ought to destroy him or her. The child is never truly the problem. Such women in our community do have real problems that need to be addressed: financial hardships, relational difficulties, family pressures, etc. We need to come together as a community to address these real problems, while we also need to stand up together and proclaim that every human person is valuable and has equal rights. Abortion truly solves nothing and only creates far greater problems. Pro-life is pro-woman, pro-love, pro-humanity.
3. If you are experiencing the difficulties of an unplanned and/or unsupported pregnancy, we have outstanding local resources to help you to address the real problems you are facing and to help you love and protect the child already alive and growing within you. We have great medical pregnancy help centers like CompassCare Community and Embracing Options His Branches, Inc. and terrific non-medical pregnancy help centers like Focus Pregnancy Centerand Women's Care Center ROC. You can also turn to most faith communities for help, although some faith communities do have things upside down on abortion, but I can tell you as a Catholic, that you can turn to any Catholic parish and we will welcome you with open arms and we will help you. Please reach out for help. You are not alone. We love you and we are here to help you.
4. The U.S. Supreme Court wrongly upheld racial segregation laws in Plessy v. Ferguson and it took 58 years for SCOTUS to eventually get it right and overturn Plessy with Brown v. Board of Education. Sadly, it's been 45 years since Roe, but just like Plessy, SCOTUS will eventually get it right and Roe will be overturned.
5. We also have the precedent of other human rights atrocities that were once accepted in American society like slavery. Slavery was once wrongly considered normal and was wrongly accepted. Thanks to abolitionists like Frederick Douglass who kept pushing, slavery was eventually made illegal and then became unthinkable in American culture. Abortion is following that same trajectory. We must keep pushing to make it rightly illegal in law and unthinkable in culture. Ask yourself the question, "what is the most effective, non-violent action available to me, and to us as a community, to end abortion as soon as possible?"

Jim is a blessing to the pro life movement here in Rochester & the Buffalo area!! He has a Radio program on the Station of the Cross called' Love Will End Abortion'. Please check it out: https://www.thestationofthecross.com/stations/rochester/
Elizabeth & her three children came & helped us out today. Frank was here & he worked hard. So much to do........
We had a young client that was about to give birth & she received many things from Focus!!
Martha did a pregnancy test which was Negative. The man, that was with her, said that they were married & they had three children but the mother just had her tubes tied with her last baby. She said that doctor told her too. Their son has a heart problem & needs surgery soon. How sad is that!! She might be having a tubal pregnancy so I gave her our pro life doctor's list & told them to go to the Emergency Room if she has any symptoms. Nice people. They were grateful & said that we helped them out, when they were in need, in the past.
Thank you Lord that we are able to help people. This is your ministry!!

It was a busy day!! Martha & Lynda was here helping & we were eating lunch when I received a call saying that two car loads of clothes & things were coming, in less, then an hour. "Okay", I said & "thank you". We saw some clients & then they came with so many things our heads spinned. The room was covered with great things for our clients. A client took a crib that we had & so many people got nice things for themselves & their children. It was from a mother & her daughter & friend. Another Focus blessing :))
It was good seeing our four Elim Bible Institute students back at Focus....they were missed. They were such a big help & we are grateful for their prayers & presence.
We saw a few men here today which is always good. Many people came in today. A good day!!!!

I had to go to get my window wiper fixed for I had to stand on 441 last night wiping the water off of my window with my flasher lights on. No fun!! The nice man at Monroe Muffler today took a screwdriver to it & fixed it without cost. I said to him "God bless you & thank you so much". He had such a huge smile, on his face, for he knew God.
I then went to the Post Office & then to the bank to deposit the donations. We are blessed!!! When I got to Focus there was Martha & Frank working hard. I went to the office to start my work.
We have seen many men this year, so far, helping them with their children's needs. A mother came in with a small baby in the stroller .....so cute!! She lives in a Shelter so I called Joel to see if he could help her with a residency. She & her children were in a fire, last week,& lost everything but all survived. Thank God!! She seemed still in shock.
Surprise, Dr. Bryan came in today, to assist us at Focus. I spoke to him regarding our, sexually abused support group, starting at Focus in February. He gave me some information & said that it is well needed. It was good seeing him & he said that he will be back next week.
Joan came to help us for a couple of hours & then Scotty showed up for a visit. Later on Linda came & brought her friend Betty, they were such a help. It was a good week. We have seen about 200 clients, in 2018, so far.

Martha went to layton this weekend to see her twin sister Mary because she is sick & she was coming back on Wednesday but I received a phone call , from Martha, this morning saying she was back in Rochester. I screamed "Marha you're home, yeah"!!! She said that she was going to sleep for awhile & will come to Focus when she wakes up. "Okay". I said "I'll see you then". I was soooo happy!!! :)))
When I got to Focus, Frank's truck was in the parking lot, & a second later Christine's car came into the lot. We have help today. I was relieved, for I received two phone calls from two young ladies, asking for a pregnancy test today. We have coverage.
Jackie came & we were talking & then I heard Martha's voice from the main room. I got up & hugged her, with a big smile, on my face.....I was relieved that she was back safe & sound.
Jackie was calling the pregnant clients to see how they were doing. All is well!!! We are working on our Sex Abuse, self-sharing group, in February.
Elizabeth & her three children came in to help us too. The Focus Pregnancy Center looks fantastic!!! Neyoka cleaned it last week.
Paul came in today, we haven't seen him in awhile. He cleaned our outside windows. He said that he will come back sooner next time. We have a Focus fundraiser meeting with Christine today at 5 pm. Then my Holy Hour & then the State of the Union address tonight. A good day!!!

I got to Focus with my right leg not working well at all but I got through the afternoon. It's because of the fall last Friday when I tripped, over my throw rug, which was over the carpet, in my apartment. Bummer :((
We didn't see many clients today but we got a lot done with our four Elim Bible students & Linda. Our center looks great :)) It will be Eva's 19th. birthday tomorrow. We all sang Happy Birthday to her as they left to go back to campus. Great young ladies.
Our client, that came in on Friday for a pregnancy test, saw her 16 week old baby today...she & her boyfriend were happy. Hope they get married & raise this child together. Be responsible parents. She lost many pregnancies through miscarriages, in the past. Hope this baby is born healthy.

I got to Focus a little later, for my right leg, that was injured intially by Morris Wortman in 1978, that hurts now. It is a L5 injury that got irritated by the fall, last Friday, in my apartment. Wortman is an abortionist now. I sidewalked counseled, in front of his abortion mill with others, for many years. He also killed, two of my family members, by abortion. I named them Chris & Pat. I pray for his & other abortionist conversion daily.
When I arrived there was Martha & our client who has emotional problems trying on coats. She got a blue jacket. My heart aches for her.
Hollie came for a short visit. She is the director of the Women's Care Center. She is a blessing to us. We refer our clients to her if they need a car seat, layette & pac'n play. She has helped many of our clients with their needs.
I called Jim H. & he told me that a precious baby was saved today in front of Planned Parenthood. Janet was out there with Adolf & she talked with this mother & she changed her mind. She said that she was going in to cancel her appointment & Janet said "please don't go in there" but she did. She went in & came right out a few minutes later. Janet offered her help & showed her Focus Pregnancy Center to which Janet has a key to the center to assist this mother in need. Thank you Lord!!!
Fr. C. came in with his monthly box of DVD's for our clients education. I was so happy to see him & he heard my confession & gave me the Sacrament of the Sick. He is such a wonderful priest. What a blessing to Focus over the years. He is a baby saver.
We are preparing for the Winter '40 Days for Life' campaign which starts on February 14th., Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Which means more people & more hours, out in front, of this killing mill. Planned Parenthood has now opened up the back gate to let people out that way but Tom goes back there & stands with a sign. You can run PP but you can't hide. God is watching you......

When I arrived there was Martha & Frank all ready here. we ate lunch together & talked for a while. We didn't see a client until later with a mother & her four children. Husband is addicted with pronography & they are separated. She is doing better since she last came in. She spoke with Linda who has been affected with an ex husband whi is addicted with pronography that has effeded her marriage & family of three children. she is divorced & Church annulled. He still causes her much heartache. He is now so called married to his adulterous lover. Ick!!! So much pain in this world!!!! Before this mother of five left I got her a nice dark blue coat for the material aid room. She tried it on & it looked so nice & then Linda gave her a pink scarf & she looked beautiful. All the children were polite & so cute. Lets pray that this man repents & goes back to his family soon.
A woman called to come for an interview to volunteer at Focus. Hopefully it will work out for we do need more volunteers. Linda came to help us out this afternoon. She was sorting Holy Cards & put them in a open container, for our clients to take, & to be blessed. It was a good day & I was able to get some things done in the office.

I had to go shopping for Focus today & also order more paper & envelopes with our name address on it. It took some time. When I arrived at the door with my car filled with bags & boxes Martha came out to bring the things into the center. Mike W. came over from sidk counseling to help Martha.....how nice was that. Then I moved my car across the street to park & went into the center.
I went in the office & started working on things that I had to do. Martha worked in the main room putting things away. We just had a big donation form Saints Place & there were 10 boxed filled with baby & children clothes .....our baskets in the material aisd room are now filled up!!! Thank you dear Lord. Martha had said that Kara, who we interviewed last evening, came for an hour to help out & will be back in two weeks after her mid finals. Hope so!!
Fred came In to do somework & then Barb came in & then Frank & then Jackie.....wow! Mike came in for a quick visit before going out to the front lines to pray. Haven't seen him in awhile. He lost all his hair but he is still Mike :)) It will grow back. It must be hard & I should be more empathic with him.
A lot got done but still more to do, always. We saw some clients today too.
Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at Focus
I got to Focus late because I had to go to do Focus errands first. When I arrived there was Martha, Frank & Barb our helper here. We saw some clients & then a young girl came in & wanted a pregnancy test. Martha assisted the client in to the office & came out a long time later. The test was positive. After she left Martha said that she wants an abortion. We all prayed in the office & I put a prayer request asking our prayer warriors to pray that this precious baby will be born....not aborted. Her girlfriend had an abortion at Planned Parenthood & is not doing well....she is post abortive & is experiencing the syndrome for the rest of her life. God does forgive when asked but it takes forever to forgive one's self. Please don't kill your baby Miss S.. We all prayed for her in the office.
Jackie came & is doing the paperwork for a $500 Grant from the Diocese for pac'n plays. Hopefully we will receive it.
Linda came to help us out. She is wonderful. Barb our landlady came & brought us a new water proof rug & the Electrician came to see if he could put in some new switches in the kitchen. That would be great.
We are getting ready for the winter Kick Off Rally for the '40 Days for Life' event. We are having Fr. Jim Hughes talking & then we will go to pray in front of Planned Parenthood & then come back to Focus for food. We are praying for the end to abortion.

Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent
St. Valentine's Day
I went to Mass, at St. Jerome's church, to receive my ashes & then I went to the Post Office & then to the Bank & then to Focus. When I arrived, there was Martha & Frank working, in taking care of the clients. I went into the office to start my work. At 3 pm the four Elim students came to help us out & they won't be here next week. Final exams. Lynda said that she won't be here today, for she got home early in the morning, from Florida with her husband Bill. A nice vacation in the sunshine. Martha did a pregnancy test which was negative but she is post abortive. So sad.

I arrived to Focus after going to Tops to get Barbara Birthday gifts. We got her flowers, pickles, she likes pickles a lot & lots of Lemons, she likes Lemons a lot. Martha made her a Cherry Pie.....wow!
She helps us out a lot & is so kind. She's been with us for a long time. Afterwards we had a nice meal of homemade Macaroni & Cheese & beans with potatoes & chicken & a veggie tray. Barbara made & brought in the food. We had Barb, Martha, Linda, Betty & Frank at the table. It was fun!!!!
Martha did a pregnancy test & it was Negative but the woman had had two past abortions......she cried. Women please behave yourselves!!!!!! No abortions!!!!!
Frank fixed the office back door & went to the store & got two front door keys made. One key is for Jim, for he needs it for Fridays when he is at PP all day, from 7 am to 3 pm. Now he will have the key to Focus, for the bathroom & all. He wants another Sidewalk Counseling class, at Focus, on Saturday, March 24th.. I said "sure". He is certainly been a blessing to us all. Thank you Lord :)))
Marha called Miss S., who is abortion minded, & she is nauseated. Martha said for her to eat ginger cookies or Ginger Ale to help with the nausea. We are so happy that she is choosing life, for her baby, but we will continue to pray for her & Martha will continue to call her to see how she is doing. Sr. Nancy called her today too. It was a very good day!!!!
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at Focus
When I arrived at Focus there was Martha & Frank there. I greeted them & then asked Frank to fix my cart that I use to bring in my groceries to my apartment for two of the back wheels feel off. He did. Thank God for men that fix things. He took out the six trash cans to the curb for pick up tomorrow. How nice is that.....
We were somewhat busy today & was able to spend some time with the clients. Jackie & Linda came in to help us & all went well.
Martha called Miss S. & she is still pregnant but nauseated. Has not told her mother so far. Martha said that if she needs to get out of her home we will find her somewhere to stay. She said "thank you". We will continue to pray for her. She has a good connection with Martha.
Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at Focus
Lynda is back!!!! She's been away for three weeks....unbearable. She is so good a woman that helps so many of our clients at Focus. She & her husband went to Florida & enjoyed themselves...yeah!!! Well deserved.
Martha & I were pleasantly busy. We had our first Sex Abuse meeting but no one showed up. We are asking them when would a good time be for them to attend. Some things do take time. Jackie, Martha & I spoke with three girls, about the 10 Commandments, that came in with their children. One of the girls was not receptive but we will pray for her to be. It takes time.

A precious baby was saved at PP today!!!!
I was in the office when Rob came in & told me that a young girl came out of PP & he brought her here at Focus. I went out & spoke with her. Martha was asking if she would like an ultrasound & she said that she already had one today at PP. I then asked her if she was going to have an abortion & she said "yes" but changed her mind. When she left PP Rob brought her to Focus where we talked with her & gave her what she needed for her two other children. She said that she will have her baby now. Praise God!!!!!!
A new mother of a 11 day old baby boy came in & Martha & Linda spent a lot of time helping her with her needs. The father of the baby is GONE. She has no one to help her but we will. We got a Taxi to take her home. A nice young mom.
Barb came in with a light replacement for the office. I will ask Frank to put it in next time he comes in. He always has work to do.
We saw mothers & fathers today. We instructed another mother who came in for a special infant formula & diapers about Chasity & to respect oneself.
Martha opened the door & spoke with two young girls asking about pregnancy tests. Martha told them what we do here at Focus. She asked if they wanted one & they said that they would like to take it home with them & she said "no". They were starting to leave when Martha said "don't go to Planned Parenthood where they kill babies. Then they hollered with their hands in the air YEAH!!!! Sick young girls. They walked up Windsor St. More people to pray for!!!
