Pray for Baby Gabriel

September 21, 2017

We have had a prayer request, and permission to share this information and photo publically:

Please could you pray for 12-week old Baby Gabriel who has been diagnosed with severe spina bifida, and is currently paralysed from the waist down. This is a picture of the precious gift of life, Gabriel. We boldly approach God’s throne, surrendering the child to God and coming with expectancy for full healing on Gabriel in Jesus’ Name. Amen

So, get praying! And share this information so that others can also pray for baby Gabriel and family.


Dignity for babies who have died in the womb

Clothes made for babies who are miscarried or stillborn. A beautiful gesture to give proper human dignity to babies who have died in the womb.


Toys Needed!

July 5, 2017

We are in desperate need of donations of toys, particularly for children under 5 years old. Due to the volume of requests for toys that we receive, our toy stock has been depleted. We are having to turn away requests for toys for children in vulnerable families at the moment, until donations of toys are received. So please, if you are having a clear-out this summer, bring your toys to us! The kind of toys that we need are ones that stimulate a child and encourage development. Usually they do not want soft toys, as the children already have soft toys. We only want good quality toys that are clean, without parts missing and in good working order.

You can bring donations to us at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative, 104 Albert Road, Crosshill, Glasgow, G42 8DR. We are open on weekdays from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm. Please phone in advance (0141 433 2680) just to check that we are around.

Many thanks in advance for your help. God bless.


My Fertility Matters (MFM) Glasgow Training Dates

April 28, 2017

http://www.mfmprojectuk.org

We have invited the MFM Project to come to Glasgow this Autumn and run two training weekends for those interested in delivering these innovative fertility education workshops in schools:

Women’s Training to teach the Girl’s Workshop “The Cycle Show”: 30th September – 1st October

Men’s Training to teach the Boy’s Workshop “Agents on a Mission”: 4th – 5th November

There are separate boys and girls workshops to teach children (aged 9-12 years) about fertility. Using colourful materials and age-appropriate props, the children journey through the body to discover its ‘secret code’ of fertility, ending with a baby being born. They also learn about the changes that will happen in their bodies during puberty. Games, stories, paraphrases and music are used to make learning fun and engaging.

Get in touch with Jess if interested: email almjess@hotmail.com or phone 07561315496


My Fertility Matters (MFM) Project Training

February 14, 2017

The award winning MFM Project runs fertility education workshops for boys and girls in their pre-teen years. We are looking for women and men to become trainers.

“ I can only protect what I value and respect.”

mfm-girls-workshopmfm-boys-workshop

In a society where sex education is geared towards protecting young people from fertility (with negative connotations such as sexual abuse, STIs, abortion), this education programme seeks rather to teach young people to value their own body as a treasure and thus protect their fertility.

The girl’s workshop is titled ‘The Cycle Show’: the girls sit around the stage of life, made of colourful, beautiful materials. They experience what is going on inside their bodies through interactive elements, age appropriate props, storytelling and music.  

The boy’s workshop is titled ‘Agents on a Mission’: a James Bond style adventure around male anatomy, with lots of physical exercise. They also learning about the female body and fertilisation of an egg creating a new life.

Take home message – every one of us was a ‘double champion’ at the start of our lives – made from the champion sperm and the queen egg.

Have a look at their website here: www.mfmprojectuk.org

We would like to bring these fertility education workshops to Scotland and are looking for women and men who would like to train to teach these workshops. Women teach the girl’s workshop and men teach the boy’s workshop. Please get in touch with Jess if you are interested- email almjess@hotmail.com. And you can also contact the UK Co-ordinator Hilary Hodgson info@mfmprojectuk.org  

There is training scheduled in Bollington, Cheshire this year:

Men’s training (“Agents on a Mission”): Thursday 20th April – Friday 21st April

Women’s training (“The Cycle Show”): Saturday 6th May – Sunday 7th May

If there is sufficient interest, then we can also organise training in Glasgow at a later date.
