Our Gaithersburg team couldn’t wait to “just get out there and begin!” Their first mission trip was to a local transit center for a half an hour. Immediately, they began to meet wonderful people who were very receptive to the Good News about Jesus and His love and care for them. The first new friend the team made was a man who asked for prayers for his cousin, who had just been released from jail. The man happily joined the team in prayer as they asked Jesus for the strength and the graces needed by both the man and his cousin. Then he took a Divine Mercy prayer card, a Rosary, and other information.

Another man who encountered the team had just lost his job that morning. He saw the team as real messengers of Jesus’ love. He was sure that God Himself had sent the team to him to encourage him that Jesus had a plan for his life. Encouraged, the Gaithersburg team spoke and prayed with another seven people, each of whom accepted Rosaries and Divine Mercy cards. The team then went out for lunch but, not able to stop, continued to speak about the Faith and hand out cards to their fellow customers. “The Lord really blessed our time!”

Great job team Gaithersburg! Keep up the good work!
