An Early Christmas Present!

An Early Christmas Present for Middle Georgia

An early Christmas Present!

Praise the Lord!

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philipians 4:4-7

Dear Friends,

It is with great joy in our hearts that we are able to share with you that God has granted Macon/Middle Georgia a wonderful gift to preserve life!  Please see the below announcement from the Kolbe Center:
~
The Kolbe Center is happy to announce that the building at 833 Walnut Street, which was the planned site of the Summit Center abortion business, has been purchased by [a precious couple] and the lease with Summit Center was terminated as a condition of the purchase; consequently, the abortion business will not be coming to Walnut Street.  The Kolbe Center will remain vigilant for any effort by Summit Center to secure another medical office building in Macon or the surrounding area and will oppose this if it should occur. The [couple that bought the property] are going to make the building at Walnut Street available to the Kolbe Center. An architect will provide renovation plans and the Kolbe Center will need help with funding the improvements in the coming months. Upon completion of the building rehabilitation, the Kolbe Center will relocate to the Walnut Street address, thus restoring with life a building which was destined to be a chamber of death!  More to come. Amen. Hallelujah!  
 
Please join us in giving praise and thanks to God our Savior and King for this wonderful blessing.  What a wonderful early Christmas present!  A special thank you to this wonderful couple for their generosity and heart for life that has been put into amazing action.  Let us continue this good work.  We do need to remain vigilant!  We need to not loose the momentum the pro-life community is gathering here in Macon/Middle Georgia.  Evil flourishes when good people become complacent and do nothing.  Let that not be said of us.  Standing for life…this mission field we call “Pro-Life”…is far from a war won.  This is a huge victory today and should be celebrated!  But, do not be surprised if the enemy retaliates.  Continue to pray.  Continue to stand.  Continue to partner with the wonderful Pro-life agencies here in Middle Georgia. Continue to seek to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those in our community that are hurting and contemplating or seeking abortion(s).  Christ will have the victory over death in its entirety!  Today, we Rejoice!
 
Standing for Life and in Christ’s Service,
The Macon Stands for Life Team
PS: If you would like to send a note of gratitude to the [couple] you may send it care of the Kolbe Center at: 1157 Forsyth St #201. Macon, GA 31201
 
Our next Chapter Meeting will be at Covenant Care Adoptions on January 14th at 6:30pm.
A fitting reminder of the faithfulness of God and our need to pray…

But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness…

Answer me, O Lord, for your steadfast love is good; according to your abundant mercy, turn to me. Hide not your face from your servant, for I am in distress; make haste to answer me…I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving. Draw near to my soul, redeem me; ransom me because of my enemies! 

When the humble see it they will be glad; you who seek God, let your hearts revive. For the Lord hears the needy and does not despise his own people who are prisoners. Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and everything that moves in them.

Psalm 69
