The following report comes to us from team leader Eduardo with our team in Katy (West), TX:
The first group to approach the table was a Latino family. We chatted with the whole family, who were in the park for some jogging. “Frank” indicated they were Catholic and asked for healing prayers due to a cyst in his left lung. Also, the entire family shared that they had lost Sebastian — their 5-year-old son and brother — of leukemia, and we committed to pray for their consolation and strength.
After that, an older woman approached the table and shared she was also Catholic and a parishioner of St. Bartholomew. She shared with us her frustration with the government and society’s moral values. We also prayed for her and her family and we asked her to pray for us, which she agreed to.
The third person was “Paul”, a German who loves soccer. He indicated he was from Munich where his favorite team still plays today in the Bundesliga. Paul shared that his wife is a Hindu and expressed that all religions “lead to the same place”. Although we amicably disagreed on this point and sensed it was not the time to pursue this issue, in the course of the conversation we did invite him to come back to Mass. We offered to pray for him and he gratefully accepted our offer. It was a positive conversation to end the day. In conclusion, this was a small step to get our feet wet into the ocean of evangelization.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
