MS.Run.Webbanner

Does your WALK match your TALK?

  • How does a Walk for Life put the walk in your pro-life talk?  Your participation in the Raffa Run helps raise needed support for a culture of life ministry,  Raffa Clinic in Hunt County.  Raffa Clinic is a Christ-centered ministry dedicated to advancing the Sanctity of Human Life and Sexual Purity.  Every day emotional, physical, and spiritual support is offered to women and their families facing unplanned pregnancies.  In other words, everything you raise to sponsor your walk will support our ever-expanding free and confidential services which include:
    • Taking every opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to this culture
    • Pregnancy Testing and Peer to Peer Options Counseling
    • Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound
    • Bringing a message in schools, youth groups, and with clients that sexual purity is achievable
    • Practical assistance with our vast Education Program and Baby Boutique to provide maternity clothes, baby clothing and baby supplies for active participants
    • Post abortion recovery group offering healing and forgiveness to an often pain-filled memory

    This year’s walk will be at the Geoffrey A Sweeney Environmental Education Center in Quinlan, Texas. This beautiful environmental sanctuary is located directly behind Boles ISD off Hwy 34 South and FM 2101 in Quinlan.

    There are three ways to participate this year:

    1. Register to be a walker/runner
    2. Sponsor a friend or family member
    3. Volunteer for the event

    **If you would like to participate but aren’t available on April 18th, that’s ok! You can register to participate, have family & friends sponsor you, then walk in your own neighborhood!

    • $25 Early Bird Registration before April 1st (t-shirts guaranteed!)

    • $35 Registration After April 1st and On-site at event (t-shirts are first-come, first-served!)

New year… time to give back.

Raffa just might be the place for you. Volunteer Orientations are a way for you to ‘feel out’ the ministry and see if this is where you are supposed to be.

No cost…No commitment to attend.

Time Is Ticking Away…

Just a few more hours…

You only have a matter of hours to give your end of year gift to Raffa Clinic. We have been blessed with an amazing year of ministry and are anxiously awaiting the BIG things in store for 2015!

Just a few notes about 2014:

  • 1,739 client visits between our Greenville and Commerce Clinics. (With our Quinlan Clinic scheduled to open this next spring, we are looking for this number to rise as we will be available to help even more people!)
  • 2,196 hours of pregnancy and parenting education provided at our Greenville Clinic. This is time spent providing expectant, new, and seasoned parents with the tools they need to raise up their children in safe, Godly homes.
  • 449 pregnancy tests. That is 449 opportunities to sit face-to-face with a girl in a crisis situation and help her to slow down…take a deep breath…and really look at all of her options. 449 chances to answer her questions about abortion and let the facts speak for themselves…that this isn’t the best choice for her or her child.
  • 187 sonograms. This is 187 times this year we were able to introduce a mother (and often, a father) to her baby. Our statistics tell us that 90-95% of the time a woman has an sonogram in our clinic, she WILL choose life for her baby. 187 times to see a new baby’s heart beating and little precious feet kicking away. 187 chances to make a difference in both the life of that child and the life of that mother.

Goals and plans for 2015:

  • Open a new Raffa Clinic in Quinlan in the spring to better serve the needs of our clients in the Quinlan/Tawakoni areas.
  • Expand our outreach to abortion vulnerable women and girls at TAMU-C, PJC, and local High Schools.
  • Present our abstinence program in every school district in Hunt County.
  • Begin a Fatherhood Program to equip the fathers in our clinic to be great fathers to their new babies.
  • Expand our Marriage Mentoring program to strengthen the client families at Raffa.
  • Minister to more women and men through one-on-one discipleship through our Hope Program.

How you can be a part:
Donate. We count on your financial support. Raffa Clinic is primarily supported by the Hunt County community. We offer one-time and monthly automatic giving via your credit card or your checking account. We also accept mail-in donations to: PO Box 9325, Greenville, TX 75404.
Volunteer: Raffa Clinic has MANY different ways to volunteer and we have volunteer orientations scheduled all throughout 2015. As we are expanding our services, we have even more need. Men and women are welcome (and needed).
Pray: Remember us in your daily prayer and sign up to receive emails when specific prayer needs arise for our clients, staff, or the ministry as a whole.

Thank you for a very successful year in ministry!
