Rachael's Vineyard is a post-abortion recovery program for all those affected by abortion. Here is Mother Teresa of Calcutta's endorsement of Rachael's Vineyard: "Jesus Himself said that He came to call sinners and not the self-righteous. I pray that all who participate in Rachael's Vineyard with the longing to be free and to be healed by Jesus, may find Him, the source of true joy, peace and love, and allow God to restore them to wholeness and happiness. I am praying much for you." If God is calling to hope and healing OR to minister to those in need of hope and healing here in our local community, please call Lisa Petersen (509)421-7847 or lisapetersen65
