Ramah International is pleased to announce the release of Sydna Masse’s Basic Abortion Recovery Ministry. This book outlines basic information new leaders need in order to begin administering any abortion recovery program.
Previously only offered to Ramah seminar attendees, the Basic Abortion Recovery Ministry manual contains invaluable information to make your pregnancy center more effective in ministering to abortion’s wounded hearts. This resource is a perfect tool for sidewalk counselors and any other person who comes in contact with those who have experienced abortion.
