This report comes to us from team leader Lucy with our team in Boise, ID:
A couple, perhaps 30 years old, stopped. The woman was Christian, but the man was not. Chuck explained the Rosary devotion to the woman and she accepted a Rosary. I told the man some of the Rosary promises published by Bl. Alan de la Roche, and he chose a Rosary as well. Chuck then made sure he received a copy of the kerygma.
Two young adults and their mom stopped for a Rosary. They each chose one, listened to a brief explanation of the devotion and the encouragement to pray it, and accepted the pamphlet. Then we urged the mom to choose one, too, to lead the others in prayer, since she already prayed it. She happened to choose the one with the blessed St. Benedict medal and was thrilled when I pointed that out to her! I guess she was the one who was supposed to receive it, since we’d had it on the table for several weeks with no takers, plus she understood what she had received. God is good!!!
A couple, late 20s or early 30s, stopped. They were not religious (or not Christian?) and were in town to look for housing, since he had a job offer in the area. As they were leaving, the woman revealed that she had breast cancer, and we promised to pray for her. She picked out a Rosary and took Good News/kerygma and Rosary pamphlets. God, please grant them faith and healing!
Praised be Jesus Christ! Please pray for God to send people to our Boise team prepared to perceive their need for Our Savior and His Holy Catholic Church, and that much good fruit for His Kingdom comes of their efforts.
