MILLINGTON — The Psalm 139 Project, a pro-life ministry of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, in partnership with the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, has donated an ultrasound machine to Confidential Care Mobile Ministry in Millington.
The dedication service for the new machine was held Oct. 28.
“It is our joy, on behalf of Tennessee Baptist Convention churches, to partner with the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission in providing a new life-saving ultrasound machine to Confidential Care in Millington,” said Randy C. Davis, executive director of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board.
“The generous Cooperative Program and Golden Offering for Tennessee Missions giving from TBC churches makes this bold support possible. Together, we stand for life.”
Confidential Care Mobile Ministry was founded in 1996 and has three mobile units that provide counseling, pregnancy tests and ultrasounds for clients.
The mobile ministry serves eight locations within Shelby County. Each mobile unit is equipped with ultrasound equipment and is staffed by medical ministry teams, including a licensed registered nurse and a patient care provider. This specific machine placement is for the ministry’s third mobile unit.
“With the overturn of Roe, we anticipate thousands of women this year in the Mid-South will be seeking a way to obtain an out-of-state abortion,” said Cathy Waterbury, executive director of Confidential Care Mobile Ministry.
“The addition of our continuum-of-care vehicle, equipped with this new ultrasound machine, will enable us to go to these women and show them that a new human being is alive within their womb. Once they see the living child on the monitor, many will choose life,” she said. B&R
