Meet Our Founder, Sylvia Slifko
Prayer, faith and sheer courage. This is how the story of ICU Mobile starts. It is more common than we like to admit that when we pray and get direction from God, we can tend to ignore it. We question what we hear and our minds can wander and just like Moses, believing that we don’t have what it takes to do the job. Somehow believing the doubts and internal fears that we’re not capable of doing the big things God puts in our paths. Perhaps this is why it says “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, what he has in store for us.” If we really knew the magnitude we might question it even more.
ICU Mobile founder, Sylvia Slifko & her husband Steve are, in some ways, a modern day Moses. Hearing and taking steps forward to deliver God’s people, especially the children, from death. ICU Mobile wouldn’t be here today had Sylvia set that whisper aside. Since 2003, Sylvia and her husband, Steve, have dedicated their lives to God’s prompting to show pregnant, abortion-minded women their babies through mobile ultrasound units.
So how did it all come together? God is so faithful and he didn’t just drop an idea in Sylvia’s lap and leave her to figure it all out. He brought forward a man who would lead her to the RV that would become the very first mobile unit, He brought forward a man who would design the vehicle, and He even brought her a doctor. An OB/GYN had recently closed his practice but was interested in helping on the mobile unit and a sonographer felt led by God to use her skills at a pregnancy center. On and on, the Lord continued to bring forward affordable and/or donated equipment and items needed to make the mobile unit fully operational.
Sylvia has the vision to see more and more mobile units not only in the United States but around the world. Imagine what a mobile unit could mean to women in countries who have limited access to pregnancy care and resources! Together, we can save lives, truly empower women, and share the gospel without boundaries.
You can help continue the work of this ministry that to date has seen tens of thousands of women, seeing many choose life for both their baby and their eternity. (since 2016 we have seen over 27,000 visitors come on the mobiles with 14,000+ clients, 8,500+ ultrasounds, 7,000+ decisions for life and over 400 decisions for Christ) and bring Sylvia’s vision to reality by donating today. With our upcoming gala and matching donations, your financial support can be doubled creating an even wider impact on the areas we can serve through ultrasound and pregnancy services.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6
