The following report comes to us from team leader Lucy with our team in Boise, ID:
It had snowed enough to stick that morning, and was snowing again when I arrived. Yet, the moment Chuck and our wagonload of stuff reached the square, the snow and wind stopped and the sun came out. (And therefore, so did the people. Thank you, God!) As we left, dark clouds gathered again at the horizon.
“Ben”, a businessman traveling from out of state, stopped for a Rosary. Turns out he’d gone to Chuck’s alma mater, which formed a quick connection between them. Ben is Catholic and had just arrived that morning. He asked about parishes and we were able to steer him toward 2 or 3 that he’d probably feel comfortable in. He accepted a map with their web addresses. He said he would pray for us with his new Rosary, and wished us “good fishing”. Pray for grace, mercy, and peace for Ben.
A young woman, working a food delivery gig, hesitated in her hurry and came to the table. She didn’t know what a Rosary was and, when asked if she were Christian, said at first that she wasn’t sure. Then she admitted that she wasn’t. She said her family had believed in generations past, but belief seemed to have faded away in recent years, and she seemed to find that regrettable. We offered that she could be the one to bring Faith back to her family, and gave her a Good News pamphlet to go along with her Rosary. May she turn to her Lord and Savior in faith and thanksgiving.
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.
