About Tessa Rosander
Hi my name is Tessa Rosander and I am from Fresno, California. I am currently finishing my last semester as a public health student with my bachelors and hope to serve where there is a need this summer. In my free time I enjoy reading, spending time with friends and family, fellowshipping with the body of believers, and doing most anything outdoors if its not too cold. In the wake of COVID-19 I have rediscovered puzzling, Marco Polo (to video chat with people), longboarding, and letter writing. Even in the midst of this pandemic, I am reminded that our God leads us not where it is comfortable, not where it is predictable, but where He will use us for His glory and for the good of his people. It was only five months ago when I listened to a podcast by LTN called 'Where the Gospel meets Abortion' along many with other podcasts and started looking into this organization and learned about their opportunities to serve with their ministry partners. After applying in January to serve as a summer intern I was asked to be a Summer Life Skills Assistant with a crisis pregnancy center. This is a ministry that saves lives of unborn children. They provide thousands of pregnancy tests and ultrasounds each year as part of their care for women who are considering an abortion. Located next door to Louisville’s only abortion clinic, where thousands of children die each year, they provide discipleship and educational assistance to women who have decided to keep their children. This wonderful Christ centered ministry is understaffed and is where my extra hands are needed. I’ll have the opportunity to both serve people in need and also gain professional work skills. "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few" -Matthew 9:37.
