Some 230 people gathered at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium Thursday night, for the annual Loving Arms Crisis Pregnancy Center annual fund-raising banquet. The event is the center's biggest fund-raiser.
Following dinner and the annual report from Executive Director Cathy Coker, guest speaker Rebecca Kiessling (KEES-ling) shared her story about being conceived as a result of her mother being raped, and how her faith in God has given her strength to tell her story nationwide. Kiessling talked with Regional Radio News after her presentation last night.
The Loving Arms Crisis Pregnancy Center is a faith-based ministry that promotes sexual integrity to those who are pregnant or have had an abortion. It's located at 500 North Walnut in Taylorville.
