Mission Partners International is dedicated to supporting pregnancy centers around the world and making their ministry to women and 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.
Which Pregnancy Centers is Mission Partners Int’l 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 Pregnancy Center is located in an area where the abortion rate is 2.5 times higher than in the US. Lydia Centers are currently located in Stip and Skopje.
What Does Lydia – A Beating Heart’s Ministry Look Like?
Much like pregnancy centers in the US, Lydia Centers offer counseling, support and resources to women facing unplanned pregnancy. Their desire is to reach deep into the hearts of the community where abortion has been used as birth control for generations.
Founded in 2012, Lydia – A Beating Heart 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 show the love of Christ in action through pregnancy counseling, educational seminars 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.
From 2013-2017, Lydia was invited to counsel every abortion-minded woman who had scheduled an abortion at their local hospital. They still have a relationship with staff at the hospitals, and are available should such an invitation be extended again.
“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.”
