11/16 – LADIES LOVE LIFE CONFERENCE

Join the first local Philadelphia pro-life conference for women! Every day in Philadelphia and surrounding areas, we see mothers entering into abortion centers to end the lives of their children. We stand outside and offer blessing bags containing resources as “Sidewalk Servants” and there are always participants during 40 Days for Life campaigns, which definitely helps to save lives. What else can we do? How can we encounter these same women before they become pregnant? As we stand outside these centers of death, we also encounter women going in for pap smears, annual exams, STD testing. What if we could offer them care? Well we can! Join fellow pro-life women for the Ladies Love Life Conference on Saturday, November 16, 2019 from 9:00am-5:00pm at New Life Church (2680 Huntingdon Pike, Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006). The goal of this conference is to engage, empower, and educate pro-life women in the local Philadelphia and tri-state area. When we learn how to help, we can spread the good news and step into action locally where our talents are best used.

Ticket Price: Student rate (women ages 25 and younger) ticket is FREE. Adult rate (women 26 and older) ticket is $30.00.

Dr. Monique Ruberu’s private Natural Women’s Health Office (Meadowbrook, PA) is willing to give a loving home to these women. When we encounter them outside abortion centers, we can connect them to this office and offer them free visits in a beautiful relaxing environment. Here they will be introduced to sexual integrity, natural family planning, NAPRO technology and love.

In order to pay for the co-pays, office visits, and medical testing of these women, we are praying for donations and sponsorship of our Ladies Love Life Conference. We have partnered with Pastor Bill Devlin and the REDEEM organization at the moment in order to collect tax deductible donations and large contributions for this project.
