My mother was Native American. She had this Indian Prayer posted in our home my entire life. She "lived" it and expected us to do so as well!
Abortion Recovery InterNational was founded with one thought in mind:
To help those impacted by abortion!
Christine Jackman and I had both been traumatized by our own "choices". We personally knew the pain of those hurting.
We HAD walked a mile in their moccasins!
Ten years later, we continue to be honored to walk alongside the men, women and families who have been impacted emotionally, psychologically and spiritually by abortion.
Holding the hands of these precious individuals, as they walk their healing journey, is truly a blessing for each of us! And believe me when I say the process can seem like "quite the hike" for those approaching their recovery! Witnessing our clients' renewed faith in the Father, their reconciliation with family and restored relationships is beyond words of explanation.
What a better way to promote healing than to "hike" in honor of all the unborn children not here to "take a step" themselves?!

Wondering Where To Hike?
You could "hike" to the water cooler if you can't get away from the office. Or maybe your weekends are free, in which case you could "hike" up the local park trail.
You might consider gathering a group of friends or work associates and take a "Hike for Healing" as a group! Grab the family late one afternoon and "hike" around your neighborhood. Maybe your church would like to "Hike for Healing" in your community.
This is a team focused fundraiser, customized by YOU. You get to choose the who, when, where and how. (We chose the why!) It doesn't matter where you hike, or even if you put on your shoes. In California, barefoot on the beach is our favorite option...
What does matters is that you are helping to heal the broken heart of a woman who chose abortion. You're assisting to fill the hole in the life of a father who didn't have a voice. You are aiding to ease the pain of grandparents who begged their daughter to choose "life", but didn't! And you are sending heartfelt love to the sibling who desperately misses the younger brother/sister they never got to meet.
Your financial support provides ARIN the opportunity to train-up Abortion Recovery Counselors who will minister to those wounded. Requests for after-abortion assistance increase annually. Abortion Recovery InterNational received over 40,000 requests for help in 2012 and by the end of 2013, we project over 50,000 individuals will have reached out to us. The ripple effect of abortion is world wide. How awesome is God's forgiveness and grace!
We can not possibly do this Kingdom Assignment without you! Please join us in our "Hike for Healing". We're more than happy to help you... help us... help them!
Thank you in advance for your ongoing support.
