This report comes to us from team leader Donna in Cuyahoga Falls, OH:
We decided to go across the street from our church and try evangelizing and praying with people using the services of “Good Neighbors” food pantry. The day was foggy and dreary, and we could feel the mist from the cloud we were in. We prayed before we headed across the street…a binding prayer and one to the Holy Spirit. We placed our wagon about 4 feet from the driveway before the pantry opened. Unfortunately, it was a new location and we didn’t realize people must “preorder” their goods because they were only driving up in a line to have their trunks loaded.
The learning experience came when the person in charge told us to move. We politely told him we had a right to be on the sidewalk. He told us there will be no proselytizing in front of his store. We repeated again that we had a right to be there. So, of course, the police were called. They politely told the man we had a right to be there, after which the man quickly called us names and other things and walked away. We stayed for 90 minutes, but seeing no foot traffic from the door to the parking lot, we left. We may try again on a non-dreary day. We did give out one rosary with a promise to pray for Paul who was on his way to work. And who knows, maybe that’s why we were there…to simply hand out that one Rosary. After all, we know that by praying the Rosary, a life can be changed.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
