Financial Gifts Matter
It’s necessary. It supports positive change. It should align with your values.
The bottom line is that money is the bottom line. But it’s not our foundation. That’s the difference you need to keep in mind when you give to ICU Mobile. Our mission exists because of the love of God. That is ICU Mobile’s foundation. It is the love of God that drives protecting the sanctity of the very lives He has created and to share the hope found in the Gospel. To carry out our mission, we need people, equipment, and other resources that cost money on an ongoing basis.
As you consider where your money goes each month, take a hard look at whether it aligns with your values. Do you despise abortion but still don’t give to pro-life organizations? Are you passionate about children, but your money doesn’t go where it impacts their health and their future? Have you felt called to “do more” but haven’t quite discerned what that means?
In pro-life organizations, the value of a dollar is much higher than its face value. The value is found in the impact that can be made with the resources it can purchase, in the people, it supports who are on the frontlines providing services to desperate, pregnant women with no one else to turn to. The dollar is mighty, but its value in the pro-life movement is much more powerful.
As a non-profit ministry, the services offered to centers with a mobile medical clinic and to the women being served are free. Pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, advocate services, and referral resources offered on the mobile clinics are all provided at no cost to every woman who approaches a mobile unit for help. Yet, all of these services and resources have costs that must be covered in order to provide them.
There has been no more urgent time to dedicate your financial support to pro-life ministries that are having a dramatic impact across this country. New laws have been passed that are causing a domino effect in almost every state, and the result will cause more devastation as supporters of those abortion laws become even more desensitized. We must bring value back to human life and share the hope we all can find in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
While our focus is on sharing the gospel with women to save both her life and the life of her child, our needs can be found in the financial support required for us to provide women with education, mobile clinics, resources for the mobile teams, and most importantly images of the child – the future – within her.
“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” - Acts 20:35
