“If you have suffered the pain of abortion like myself, there was still something missing in my life… I felt such shame, so unworthy of happiness and peace, no matter what I tried to do, there was still a huge hole in my heart. Someone had suggested that I go on a Rachel’s Vineyard retreat. Although skeptical I did and I’m here today healed, hopeful and amazed of how God’s mercy and love have continued to affect my life. Many of us have been affected by the pain of abortion. You do not need to live this way anymore. There is hope and healing available. The Rachel Ministries can help."
“I went to a Rachel’s Vineyard retreat and it was truly amazing. I found God and his mercy, and began to dismiss the feelings of unworthiness that I’d felt for so long that kept me away from church. The most significant moment for me that weekend was when I confessed my sin of abortion to a priest . . . and felt forgiven by Christ. And that began my healing.”
"The Rachel’s Vineyard weekend was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. I felt nothing but love and acceptance from the retreat team, other retreatants, and above all, Jesus, during the entire retreat weekend.”
“I felt the Holy Spirit moving around, among and in us. God’s presence was there with its entire splendor manifested in the power of healing forgiveness. It was beautiful.”
“After struggling alone for years with the guilt, shame and remorse of my involvement with my girlfriend’s decision to abort our child, I finally found a ministry that recognized my need to get help.”
“Thus says the Lord: Cease your cries of mourning, wipe the tears from your eyes. The sorrow you have shown shall have its reward. . . . There is hope for your future.” – Jeremiah 1:15-17
