This report comes to us from team leader Donna in Cuyahoga Falls, OH:
1 Peter 3:15 “Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope.” That means we need to be full-time evangelists. This past weekend I had the privilege of serving with a healing ministry on a young adult (under 45) retreat. These young men and women are amazing. Their honesty and vulnerability before the Lord is a witness to me.
Adoration, healing ministry and confession were offered outside on a crisp, clear autumn evening. One young man came for healing prayer for forgiveness for an ex-girlfriend and pornography. After the prayer, I sensed the Lord telling me to ask him if he prays the Rosary. You know, if you ask someone to give up a bad habit or a sin, you have to replace the void with a good habit or virtue. He said no, he needs help with his prayer life and did not own a Rosary.
Since we were in the parking lot, and my car was 25 feet away, I asked him to take a walk with me. I opened the back of my SUV and revealed my mobile bookstore. He asked for a blue Rosary and as I was untangling it for him, he helped himself to the pamphlets on “how to pray the Rosary” and “sexual purity.” He also accepted a Miraculous Medal. He walked away at peace and armed with a battle plan. It was an anointed evening for sure, and I was glad I had my trunk stocked. It wasn’t planned, but the Holy Spirit was working overtime that night. I don’t think I will ever remove my SPSE supplies from my trunk!
Praised be Jesus Christ!
