"The Colors of Life Have Faded..."
Summarize Your Experience In One Sentence...
I could write a book with the short profound statements we hear from women, men and family members impacted by abortion. In 15 words or less, Nicki explained JUST how abortion changed her life. She's was no longer living in color, but in utter darkness!
Nicki had hope that there might be a light at the end of her tunnel. It literally took everything she had to pick up the phone and contact us. We matched her with an affiliate in her area and she has not only completed a recovery program, she's praying about leading them! God is so good!
Recovery Helps. Recovery Provides Hope. Recovery Results in Healing!
Next week, Abortion Recovery InterNational will participate in the Care Net Conference in Denver, Colorado. Honored to be an intricate part of the Care Net Team, we look forward to these annual gatherings to network with pregnancy centers around the globe. It is there we are given the opportunity to touch more willing hearts and encourage them to lead recovery support groups around the country and abroad. What a blessing!
Next Wednesday through Saturday, we'll be involved in some amazing training sessions (see the section box below). Our leadership team will be networking out of exhibit booth #31!
We're got some revised and updated brochures and this awesome new bracelet to share with you. We're calling it the "Have Hope" bracelet. It's personally hand crafted by a friend of mine, JoAnn Doxakis. JoAnn has offered to make them for ARIN Affiliates and Advocates. You can see they're absolutely gorgeous. Stop by booth #31 and see for yourself!
Pati Adams, ARIN's new Florida Recovery Ambassador, will be accompanying us to the Care Net Conference. As well as Lisa Dudley-Adams, a key member on our ARIN Advisory Board. Both women are passionate about the role of recovery in the lives of those who have chosen abortion.
If you have not yet read up on our amazing new leadership team, ARIN's Recovery Ambassadors, feel free to do so. Sandy Arena, our New York Ambassador and Lynn Coles, Ambassador for the United Kingdom and for Ireland have recently joined us. We're so excited to work with each of them!

Stretching Beyond Our Expectations...
At the beginning of the year, we planned and budgeted to attend two major conferences. God has called us, so far, to attend 3 conferences and one pro-life banquet. Needless to say, we're kind of stretching our "Outreach Budget" beyond it's line item.
In addition, our ARIN Ambassadors have had their own local speaking engagements, networking with Dr. Oz, speaking at a NorCal Youth Conference and participating in a rally against Obama-Care. We're excited about being in "the field", as it allows us to educate and equip more individuals and agencies to offer CARE* (Compassionate Abortion Recovery Efforts) to those hurting.
However, we're kind of in crunch mode now. We need immediate assistance to be able to fund our end of year commitments and activities. If you would so kindly pray about a donation, it would be very much appreciated!
Thank you for your ongoing support of our Kingdom Assignment!
