Here are some topics that Sydna can present at your event.
Presented mainly for CPC events and pro-life functions, this talk presents Sydna Masse's personal testimony of having an abortion at 19 while attending a private Christian college. Sydna was the daughter of a Baptist minister who was dating the son of a Methodist minister when they joined the numerous ranks of young Christian couples turning to abortion clinics to "erase their mistake."
The story of God's grace through the following years and the power of the Holy Spirit to finally direct Sydna to a CPC's post-abortion ministry program are a testimony to the healing power and forgiving nature of our Creator. This is a message of hope and peace, which is rarely heard today in abortion discussions.
Forgiveness: Breaking the Chains
This story was featured in the January, '99 issue of the Focus on the Family magazine, and the January '00 issue of Christianity Today. In this talk, Sydna shares the emotional story of how the Lord led her to forgive the woman who murdered her friend and neighbor. This simple act of obedience led to the development of Ramah International's prison post-abortion outreach program. It is Sydna's experience that 60-80% of women prisoners could be post-abortive. This stirring message of hope and forgiveness is suitable for any audience.
Sin's Lasting Consequences
Developed for Focus on the Family's "Life on the Edge" tour, Sydna speaks to younger audiences (teens and college chapel services) about her personal testimony of choosing to have an abortion rather than facing the consequences of a crisis pregnancy and how it affected her life. Transparently, Sydna speaks directly to those who are considering a sexual relationship outside of marriage as well as those who are sexually active as to why abstinence is the best option.
A National Perspective on Crisis Pregnancy Centers
Sydna's unique seven-year position as Manager of the Crisis Pregnancy Ministry for Focus on the Family allowed her to become an expert on a movement that is gaining strength and stature in the United States today. Highlighted facts include the areas of service CPC's provide, as well as a unique testimony of how a local center led her back to the Lord after an abortion experience.
This presentation is filled with wonderful stories of how individual centers have been used by God to affect many hearts with the gospel. It is perfect for pro-life retreats and conferences as well as crisis pregnancy center banquets. Sydna makes a strong appeal to listeners to become involved in their local center on a volunteer basis as well as providing prayer coverage and financial support.
