Annual Benefit Program

Contact: Libby Owens, St. Joseph PRC Libby.owens@stjosephprc.org www.stjosephprc.org (816) 387-8090 St. Joseph, MO, August 15, 2019 — St. Joseph Pregnancy Resource Clinic invites you to hear the incredible story of Gianna Jessen, keynote speaker, during the Wonderfully Made Annual Benefit Program on September 10, 2019, at Word of Life Church in St. Joseph, MO. Gianna Jessen is an international pro-life speaker, advocate, writer, and a gifted singer. She has testified before the United States Congress, the Australian Parliament, and the British Commons. Gianna has spoken to millions of people in Italy with Pope Benedict XVI conveying her inspiring story in the Vatican newspaper. You see, Gianna Jessen was intended to die before she was born, just another one of the 1.2 million abortions each year in the United States. Instead of death, though, Gianna was bathed in a burning saline solution, but she overcame to enter the world. Two months premature and weighing just two and a half pounds, she spent her first couple of months in a hospital. Eventually, she entered the foster care system. “God is using Gianna to remind the world that each human being is precious to Him. It is beautiful to see the strength of the love of Jesus, which he has poured into her heart. My prayer for Gianna, and for all who listen to her, is that this message of God’s love will put an end to abortion with the power of love.” 
- St. Teresa of Calcutta For a voice that was never intended to speak, it not only speaks and sings, but it also laughs. Why? Gianna has said, “I...

Our Hope and Future – Reviving the Sanctity of Life Worldview

Our Hope and Future – Reviving the Sanctity of Life Worldview

Sometimes youth get a bad rap, but we can’t lump them all into one “no-good, no-hope” pile and wring our hands. There are excellent examples of young people in each generation who truly want to make a difference for the glory of God. Furthermore, when young people learn the truth about the issues of the day, many of them actually want to take action. This is true when it comes to the topic of abortion. Moved by the video trailer of the movie “Unplanned,” Grace Voga immediately decided to do something. She decided to ask her friends, of all ages, to support and make a contribution to the St. Joseph PRC. Ultimately, Grace collected over $130 in donations to go toward the work of helping women in crisis pregnancies choose life. Grace said that she is pro-life because God speaks to this issue in His Word, and “it’s a life from conception.” And Grace isn’t the only student showing an interest in the pro-life movement this summer. Hope Fellowship and Copeland Baptist Church both took missions’ offerings for the St. Joseph PRC during their Vacation Bible School activities. The combined total from both churches amounted to over $588! First Baptist Church of Stewartsville collected baby-care items for their VBS. In fact, the local Dollar General wanted to know what was going on! The children of that community practically depleted the store of all the baby items they had! Young men have helped by loading heavy equipment into a U-Haul so it can be taken to Cameron. Other groups have counted and cleaned baby bottles. Several teenagers have picked up...
