Mika'l and Sarah partnered with Save A Life International, a Ukraine based Pro-Life ministry. They were invited to go and help them start their post-abortion ministry. Mika'l and Sarah led a group through the Forgiven & Set Free Bible Study, taking women through the post-abortion healing process, with the goal of equipping them with the tools to carry on this vital ministry.
Mika'l's journey in post-abortion ministry began 8 years ago after getting involved with the Radiance Women's Center, a ministry that comes along women in a crisis pregnancy and who cares for women after abortion. This was her second trip to Ukraine doing post-abortion ministry. It is truly one of her greatest joys - to see women who have been set free from the bondage of guilt and shame and who now are able to walk in the light and forgiveness of Jesus Christ.
Sarah, who partnered with Mika'l on this trip, has worked in pro-life ministry for 2.5 years doing sidewalk counseling outside one of the busiest abortion clinics in the Southeastern United States. She has taken a break for the past year to get married, move to a new state and start a new job, but when Mika'l texted her out-of-the-blue asking if she wanted to travel to Ukraine this summer to do post-abortion ministry she (haltingly) said yes. This is all new: post-abortion ministry, foreign travel, foreign countries, foreign languages but this is her prayer: to live a life yielded to the Lord's will. "Speak, Lord, for your servants *ARE* listening." "Here am I; send me."
"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners...to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion - to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."
- Isaiah 61:1-3
