Volunteer Spot Light

-Olivia Portillo

A year ago God called me to serve Him as a volunteer at one of the Pregnancy Resources centers.What an experience!
We start every day with prayer asking God for guidance and to prepare our hearts to pour out His love over these beautiful mothers that come to the center with needs to be met.
Psalm 139 shows these moms that God is amazing and He is the creator of everything and He has made us in His image.
I have been active in different Christian groups and I have never seen so many people come to accept the Lord as their savior in such a short time.Six people have come to the Lord this year on Fridays alone! The presence of the Holy Spirit is so strong in these centers due to the daily prayer of all who serve in this wonderful ministry. I know the people come many times with burdens and leave with hope on their faces.And there are days when we get to see these beautiful babies and know that our God is rejoicing with us. This is a place where miracles happen!
This is a great gift from God for me to be called to serve Him in this way. My prayer is that His divine provision will always be plenty and many more will come to know Him.

Olivia serves as our Spanish bi-lingual volunteer on Friday mornings in Moline. Her classes in Spanish for Latinos have been a blessing and God has been doing a wonderful work in the hearts of those coming!
