The following report comes to us from team leader Lucy with our team in Boise, ID:
We hope God uses us to help bring souls to/back to Him. A woman in her early 20s eagerly came to the table for a Rosary. She asked me, “This provides protection, right?” I clarified that the Rosary is not a magic charm, but that it’s God Who protects us when we spend just 15 minutes a day thinking about and being grateful for what He has done for us. May God grant the woman the protection she desires as well as a true love for the Rosary and the One to Whom it leads.
A woman came to the table because Rosaries reminded her of her grandmother. I explained the devotion to her, and then also gave her a copy of the kerygma after hearing her refer to believers as “them”. Another woman, accompanying an older man in a wheelchair, turned out to be from my parish. The man told us the woman had 10 Rosaries for every day of the week. She thanked us for being out there. We asked her to pray the Rosary for us.
Three boys in their early teens declined a Rosary, then one changed his mind. He tried to grab one and go, but we detained him long enough to hand him a pamphlet on how to pray it, and make sure he knew it was meant to draw him closer to Christ. When he rejoined his friends, one of them shouted something in jest. Please pray for their conversion so that their understanding of God goes from mere joke to loving Father.
A couple in their early 30s was passing by. The man declined a Rosary, but said his girlfriend might want one. Sure enough, she did. The man remained uninterested in a Rosary but chatted with Chuck about his interest in a sport. I spoke with the woman, giving her a copy of the kerygma as well as the Rosary pamphlet.
Praised be Jesus Christ! Please pray for God to send people to this team with hearts prepared to perceive their need for Our Savior Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church, and that much good fruit for His Kingdom comes from their efforts.
