Vote Pro Life!

We recently received a letter from one of our favorite preachers. He outlined a lot of good information about the upcoming elections. He emphasized that even if you don’t like either candidate running for President, it is important to vote for one of them and for the down ballot people….even if they are running for some local office.

He stated” Elections are very serious business, especially to God and to the kingdom of God. Voting is not optional in HIs eyes because the WORD says in Provers 29:2, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth the rule, the people mourn.” ……. He went on further to say: “Whether you or I like them or not has nothing to do with anything.”

“In the first place, there are more people running for office in this election than just those seeking the offices of president and vice president, as I mentioned earlier. There are also the platforms that form the agendas of each party—the platforms that these candidates are supporting—that we must consider. Those platforms are the big issue, especially to you and me as believers .”

“The planks in those platforms came out of people’s hearts. God pays very close attention to them, and to those who choose to stand on them. No one and stand on one plank and not the other.  You’re not standing on a plank. You’re on the whole stage, which is made up of every plank.”……..

READ The Republican Party Platform and the Democratic Party Platform here. From the presidential nominees to the soil and water conservation person on the ticket, these are their views on the issues. Now… choose.

The letter went on to say : “The one thing that disturbs met the most is the abortion agenda of the Democratic Party. No one can vote for a candidate, knowing they are for abortion, without being and accomplice to murder. Lets go to the word of God and see why aborting is just that—murder. We’ll begin with Deuteronomy 30:19:

19 I call heaven and earth to record this day again you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:therefore choose life that both thou and thy seed may live.

“That tells us exactly what to choose—-LIFE!

“Now let’s read Proverbs 6:16-19, NIV Version-84.

16 There are six things The Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him:

17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood.

18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil,

19 a false witness who pours out lies and an man who stirs up dissension among brothers.”

The letter goes on to outlay many more supporting scriptures. For now I ask you stop and think about this election. Our choices may not be the best but remember the Lord used flawed men and women throughout the Bible to get His Will done on earth through men and women with flaws. Think about which platform the people you want to represent you, stand on, then go out and vote for them.

We Should Make the Hyde Amendment Permanent

Should the Hyde Amendment become permanent. This article published today on states in part:

“Today marks the 40th anniversary of an important policy that prohibits taxpayer funding of abortion — the Hyde Amendment. This is an annual appropriations rider that does not allow direct taxpayer dollars to fund abortion coverage through government programs.”

“Former Congressman Henry Hyde, from Illinois, offered this amendment first in 1976. In 1980 the Supreme Court upheld the Hyde amendment in a 5-4 decision, recognizing that “abortion is inherently different than other medical procedures, because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life.” ”

Let your representatives know about this important amendment that needs to be made permanent today.

2016 September HPCC Directors Report

cropped-image-066-web.jpg As expected the number of visitors began to go down with the advent of the NC Diaper Bank moving their partnership to the Stokes County Health Department WIC program. As our diaper ministry winds down, we had 25 visitors come for diapers. If we had the requested size, we gave it to them while referring them and giving them the number for the Health Department. We will continue to give out diapers as we have the size requested. Our baby and maternity clothing closet remains open as always.

The Diaper Ministry gave 36 New Born Diapers, 87 Size 1, 25 Size 2, 50 Size 3, 300 Size 4, 262 Size 5 and 60 Size 10 diapers.

We gave 1 pregnancy test, 6 received baby clothes, 1 received maternity clothes, 1 received furnishings, 2 received baby toys, 1 received baby food, 1 received baby formula, and 20 received baby wipes. Other small items like baby shampoo and lotion were also given out.

Please note that the numbers will continue to go down a little each month as the folks coming here to get diapers continue to go to the Health Dept. to get them. Remember to let your friends, church, church groups and other know that we still are accepting baby items to assist young families as we can.  Check our “How to Help Hope Pregnancy Care Center” page to find out what we need to meet some of the needs we see and hear about.



2016 August HPCC Directors Report

cropped-image-066-web.jpg In the month of August, Hope Pregnancy Care Center was open for 11 days.   We had 34 visitors on the days we were open.


The Diaper Ministry gave out 150 newborn diapers, 150 size 1 diapers, 25 size 2 diapers, 25 size 3 diapers, 500 size 4 diapers, 575 size 5 diapers and 40 size 6 diapers. A total of 1465 diaper. In addition, we were able to give maternity clothing, baby, baby toys, formula, furnishings and baby wipes this month.cropped-image-094-web.jpg

We also gave out a of crib, baby wash, baby shoes and baby shampoo this month.


I want to thank all of our volunteers that have helped keep the doors open at Hope Pregnancy Care. Without their showing up and greeting and talking with our visitors, Hope Pregnancy Care Center could not continue to function.  I want also to thank all the churches, church groups and individuals who donate to HPCC.


Hope Pregnancy Care Center did receive notice (Sept 2) from the NC Diaper Bank that they have chosen to utilize the Stokes County Health Dept. as their distribution partner in Stokes County. They have not give a specific reason for not continuing with HPCC but thanked us for what we have done. HPCC has chosen to distribute the remaining diapers as requested by our visitors but will be referring all needing diapers to the Stoke County Health Dept. WIC Program as asked to by the NC Diaper Bank.image 045 small


While all of us are disappointed with the NCDB decision it was their decision to make the Health Dept the distribution point for Stokes County. To continue through the end of the year simply puts off the inevitable for folks that have been coming to Hope.


The Diaper ministry at Hope has never been our main emphasis. It did grow in scope mainly because of the free diapers. Our main emphasis remains that we are committed to providing our clients with accurate and complete information about both prenatal development and abortion. The diaper ministry grew from our commitment to assist women to carry to term by providing emotional support and practical assistance. We can still do this through keeping a small supply of new born and size one diapers on hand along with the clothing and other items we continue to receive in donations.

Hey! Help us out when you can. Pray for the ministry here at HPCC!



Speaker Paul Ryan Refuses to Fund Planned Parenthood in Zika Bill “That’s Something We Won’t Do”

“Speaker Paul Ryan refused to give in to pro-abortion Democrats’ demands for more Planned Parenthood funding in the Zika aid bill on Thursday.”

“Democrats have been blocking critical aid bills to combat the virus for months because they do not fund a few Planned Parenthood facilities in Puerto Rico. On Wednesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Democrats would continue to block legislation unless the abortion giant gets more taxpayer dollars.”

NC Diaper Bank Chooses WIC Program to Distribute Diapers

The NC Diaper Bank has made their decision that HPCC will not continue as a partner with them. They have chosen to ask us to refer folks to the Stokes County Health Dept. WIC program for their diaper needs through the NC Diaper Bank.
Hope has chosen to begin informing our folk this week. As people come in and request diapers, we will continue to give them as long as we have that size on hand. At the same time the will be informed that we will not continue to be a primary supplier of their diaper needs and direct them to the WIC Program at  (336)593-2402.
We will continue to maintain our clothing and baby supplies closet.
