Friday feature: Metro Women's Center

Metro Women's Center in Crystal, Minnesota, was one of the first centers we helped establish, back in 1990. It's been a privilege to know and work with Director Colleen Tronson all these years. And a joy to watch her dream of opening a maternity home come true. The grand opening of the Amazing Grace Maternity Home is tomorrow, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (official ribbon cutting and dedication program at 2).

Colleen sends out a regular e-newsletter, and this week's so perfectly illustrates what we've been writing about in our Monday Musings (here and here). She writes:
We are completing our 22 year of ministry at the end of September. My heart is full or gratitude to God and our supporters who have made this outreach possible.

Each day we receive calls from people who need physical and/or financial help. It continues to be our joy to assist where we can, but our greatest desire is to share the Gospel. Please pray with us that we have more opportunities to do this in the coming months.
Other prayer requests:
  • For abortion-minded women to seek help at the center
  • Women who are trying to make decisions about parenting or adoption
  • Fathers to protect the lives of their children, born and unborn
  • Keith and Meredith Henderson, our new house parents/resident managers for the Amazing Grace Home
  • For spiritual growth of new believers
  • For safety for all the workers at the AG Home site
