A Christmas in July TBT

It’s great to look back at what Cheryl said and, in this Christmas in July throwback Thursday, Cheryl shared her vision of what is today a reality at CPO back in December of 2010, but the needs are still real. Click here to make a Christmas in July gift to CPO to help us continue to minister to these young women.

Dear Friends,

Please remember CPO in your end-of-year giving!

We are serving so many hurting young women. Our beautiful new offices and meeting area at Christian Chapel have brought in so many new girls. We believe that we will be a certified “Medical Clinic” in 2011 and have an ultrasound machine and volunteer staff of Registered Nurses who will be trained to use this additional way of saving even more babies, as their birth moms see their beating hearts and forming bodies at a very early stage of their development.

We need $10,000 to make all of these plans a reality. Please help us as we impact the lives of these little ones and their mothers for Jesus Christ.

May God bless you richly as you reach out to help these precious young women.

In His Service,
Cheryl J. Bauman

We’re happy to say that today we do have that medical clinic and do numerous ultrasounds each and every year. The need is still very real, and we can always use your help. Please consider a donation to CPO or volunteering with us.

TBT: Cheryl Said

This week’s blog takes us back over 7 years to the “Cheryl Said” part of the Summer 2010 newsletter:

I was thinking today about how many people in today’s world really don’t want to be INCONVENIENCED. It is not always convenient to take a CPO girl to the doctor, or just listen on the phone to the dark valley she’s going through. It is often inconvenient to bring a fruit tray up to the church or sit with a girl during Support Group. It is never convenient to wake up in the middle of the night to go to the hospital and support a girl during her labor and birth. And yet, the volunteers at CPO do these things over and over with a loving heart. Why is that? I believe it is because they have Jesus in their hearts.

It always reminds me of Sister Haskell in Chadron, Nebraska. Her daughter, Sheryl Ann, invited me to “Kid’s Crusade” at the little white clapboard Assembly of God Church when I was 9. I know that wasn’t convenient. She must have picked up 6 of us, and the boys were just awful. They squirmed and wiggled and giggled at the people going down to pray at the altar. Sister Haskell gave them a few stern looks but went right on praying for people. I had been in church all of my life, but I went home and told my mom that this was “real church.” I asked Jesus to come into my heart, and my life has never been the same. I thank God daily that Sister Haskell was INCONVENIENCED.

Please remember that you are “God with skin on” for our girls. They will never forget your acts of kindness. Thank you so much to each one of you who are, over and over again, willing to set aside the schedule you had planned for your day to minister instead to a hurting girl.

In His Service,
Cheryl J Bauman.
