"Love One Another as I Have Loved You."
I wanted to share with you the results of this campaign, which were announced last night. Throughout the city of Indianapolis, we are aware of 4 saves and 9 hopefuls!!!! I can’t begin to tell you how absolutely amazing this is. God is truly so good!!! And what we don’t know is how many people decided not to go forward with their planned abortion because we were there but never said anything to us. During this campaign we had 3 different adults stop and tell vigil participants that they owed their life to someone praying outside of an abortion facility when their mom was going to go in to abort them. Each one of those can encourage us and remind us that our prayers and witness were having great impact without us even knowing it.
From an international level, Shawn Carney. President 40 Days for Life, reported, “ This was the largest 40 Days for Life campaign ever. Reports are still coming in … but local 40 Days for Life leaders tell us that as of now, they’re aware of … 492 mothers in 375 locations around the world who have rejected abortion and chosen life for their babies! In many cases, all it took was the simple act of showing up to pray on the sidewalk.”
Sheryl and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your faithful participation. We had a really strong turnout this time–and it was so gratifying to sidewalk counsel while looking at 6, 7 or 8 vigil participants during one hour. That was not a rare occasion either.
Love and blessings to you all!
