Sasha (not her real name), 23, came to Amnion with her older sister determined the answer to her suspected pregnancy was abortion. She had recently stopped working and had lost her health insurance. “I want to go back to nursing school, and a baby would just mess this all up.” She lived with her parents and had not told them. “They will be really mad at me, and they will probably kick me out.”
Juli, Amnion’s Spanish-speaking client advocate, listened to Sasha’s objections and talked through her questions. Juli discussed the support and provisions available if she chose parenting and detailed the information related to abortion procedures, including the risks and implications. An ultrasound gave Sasha a glimpse of her baby in the womb. Before she left that visit, she said, “It is a baby, it has everything already. I don’t think I could have an abortion! I cannot do that!” Sasha made a decision for life! We are so grateful for the ways God uses Amnion to minister to those who walk through our doors!
We have something the world desperately needs…hope. This is the mission to which God has called Amnion: offering the hope of Jesus Christ to those impacted by an unplanned pregnancy. Because of your prayer and financial support, Amnion has spread hope to over 17,500 women and men over the past 31 years. Thank you for your faithful partnership!
The author of Hebrews writes, “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure” (6:19). This hope is firm and secure because our great High Priest entered the heavenly sanctuary to offer himself as the sacrifice for our sins and then rose victorious over the grave three days later. Hallelujah!

With deepest gratitude,
Pastor Mark Opseth
