Once again, our 40 Days for Life family pulled together and stood for life! I thought I would be alone all morning during my shift, since there was no church and only one volunteer signed up for 10am. I was suprised to see Marilyn walking towards me to keep me company at around 8:30am. She had gotten my email and knew I was going to be alone, so decided to come stand with me. Here is a photo of us:
After about an hour, I was suprised again by the arrival of one of our Shift Managers, Cathy…who had also read the email and came to stand with me. Here is a photo:
Before I knew it, it was 10 o’clock and Tess arrived for her scheduled time:
This photo was taken at the end of my shift, and shows Christine and her baby, Sly…who had arrived early from the Catholic Moms Group. The faithful sisters from this group signed up to witness for Christ and for Life during our second shift today. Here is a photo of Barbara, who was the Shift Manager during the second shift today:
More Catholic Moms showed up after I left. Kellie sent me this photo:
You know, looking at these photos brought tears to my eyes. Seeing such Godly women, who are also bold and courageous…who are willing to stand up against evil and are bravely working to improve the culture that we are leaving to our children…is such an ispiration!
It is such a blessing to get to meet so many women of God through this ministry! I am so grateful that I have the privilege to serve God in this way! Thanks to all who are praying, fasting, and coming to hold vigil!
