Michele and Jeremiah: City Directors Fayetteville, NC

In Michele’s words:


When I moved from upstate New York to Raleigh, NC, a co-worker invited me to Summit church in Raleigh.  I knew of God but never heard the gospel message about being saved. Where I was from, everyone I knew believed when anyone dies, they all go to heaven. This was one of many false beliefs.  I began attending Summit a few days a week as well as serving there on the worship team. The people I was with in bible study and the young professionals I knew were not saved. I thought I knew God but really did not. I was not in a relationship with Him as Lord and Savior of my life. 

I had been attending and serving at church for months. On Resurrection Sunday, as I was singing on the platform at church, the word of God touched my heart and opened my eyes to the truth. I discerned the reality that I didn’t know Him. I really wanted to know Him, to love Him, to live for Him! That day, I surrendered my heart and life to Jesus as my Lord and savior and was baptized! 

I was forever changed that day. Within an hour of my salvation, I was so excited that I called many family and friends. They were not pleased. They yelled at me and told me how angry and disappointed they were. There are still family and friends who don’t talk to me because of my faith in Jesus and choosing to live for Him. I pray for their salvation! I love them and want God’s will for their lives. I wouldn’t change my decision ever. It is the best decision I have ever made. The conflict and trials from that day on have just made me closer to Him and stronger in Him. One of my favorite scriptures that I have truly understood in greater measure throughout the years is James 1:2-4.

On Abortion and Why I Care About this Issue:

I care very deeply about the value of life that God has given every human being, even before birth, known by God before conception. Every human being is created in the image of God. Valuing life, God, His word, and being His child all lead me to care about the issue of abortion. Some family members have had an abortion. They and their families have been deeply damaged by the effects of the decision to murder their child. 

From the day I gave my life to Jesus, I have faced adversity. Through every challenge, I have come to a deeper relationship with Him and of who I am in Him. By His grace, I will not be shaken. My journey with The Lord has deeply rooted and established me in Him. I know apart from Him, I can do nothing, but in Him, all things are possible. I know that what Satan means for harm, God is working for good. His grace is sufficient, and His power is made perfect in my weakness.

Preparation for Ministry with Love Life

Prayer and conversations with the Lord during 2020 led me to Love Life. I actually thank God for 2020! During that time, I was seeking direction from God. I also wanted my heart to break for what breaks God’s heart most. I was led to listen to John and Lisa Bevere’s podcast. They were interviewing the Benham brothers, and during the interview, they began to discuss their dad and being involved in pro-life ministry in NC. My research led me to the Love Life website. After reading through the website, I found that there was a Love Life presence in Fayetteville, NC, where I lived. I had never heard of it before. 

From there, I signed up to pray with the local ministry. The Friday night before the prayer walk, as I was praying with my seven-year-old son, he asked me if he could go with me. I agreed and explained a little more about the ministry. He thanked me, then shared that he had a vision. The vision was of a baby in the mother’s womb saying, “Stop, please don’t hurt me, let me live,” and no one was hearing the baby.

With tears flowing down my face, I said, “That is why God is sending us to be a voice for the voiceless.” I knew God was confirming for us to go. We went that Saturday. The next Saturday, my husband and other son joined us as well. From that day, we have been serving as a family with Love Life.

My hope for Love Life:

*Abolish Abortion

*Saints at all abortion clinics until it’s abolished

*The Church united in Jesus as Lord, knowledge and standing on His word and mobilized worldwide.

*Families being trained up according to the word of God, leading generations into a Godly legacy

*Love Life presentations flooded throughout the nation at churches, businesses, tv, media, radio, and schools…increasing awareness and truth for His kingdom and glory on earth as it is in heaven.

Abortion and many issues are due to a lack of knowledge of God and His word.

Highlights of our ministry: 

families saved, post-abortive moms being healed, churches uniting in prayer and worship


getting connected with churches, committed laborers for the mission field 

Current climate: 

1 abortion clinic is partially covered, the second needs coverage

6 churches committed to adopting a week for 2023

Prayer requests: 

A catalyst for Fayetteville, sidewalk outreach and mentors, a vehicle for our family for pastor connections, church drop-ins, Love Life presentations potentially at church staff, businesses, schools, are ministries during the week

For His kingdom and glory on earth as it is in heaven.

    Thanking God for connecting me to Himself… first… and second… for opening doors to meet a Lovelife person in a Hatteras Island church while on vacation. While it’s been years ago since meeting her, my heart has continued to break about the abortion industry in our country and the “political” atmosphere of it that causes churches/believers/me to remain silent and inactive even after feeling the prompting of His Spirit to play a more active part in a ministry such as this. As He is growing me and working, I am EVER aware of of the need to speak truth with love… and not just love with the absence of truth. I know He is working in His own time with me thru situations in and around me and my family… and as He has put a desire to serve Him in this area with Lovelife… I pray it is completely His work and His strength. I am thankful and inspired by your story here on this page… I am thankful He made me not afraid to tap the button to inquire about House of Refuge for my church.. Lifesong in Russell, Kentucky. I am praying and am planning to present Lovelife ministry to our pastor and leaders of the church in the next two weeks… I am ready to make a call to meet with him. Please pray for us… I will pray thanksgiving over you and what He has planned for all who come in contact with Lovelife across the nation…. there is such a sorrowfulness and hopelessness (leading to apathy and the fear to speak out against/fear to speak truth) because of the pure evilness being carried out in the form of abortion from coast to coast. HE makes me not afraid… Psalm 27. I am certain that I will see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living…Wait for the Lord.. Be strong and courageous… Wait for the Lord.
