The following report comes to us from team leader Nancy with our team in Gaithersburg, MD:
Bob, Amparo, and I ventured out last Thursday to the bus terminal. Amparo does a fantastic job of connecting with the Spanish community. So many single moms feel so alone and have no transportation and their children are void of all the sacraments. Amparo has a real love for the faith and follows through on connecting these moms with the right resources. She has no fear of approaching these families and finding out their story. We are very grateful to have her on our team.
One of the bus drivers left her bus running and ran to grab some rosaries to give to her friend. She mentioned back at the bus depot where the bus drivers meet, there have been many discussions about the faith and she was glad that we were there to also grab some Good News pamphlets. Another bus driver came off his bus because he had lost his Benedictine cross and wanted some Miraculous Medals for his children. He shared how it is very difficult these days to handle the different personalities who ride his route. We prayed over him for God’s protection and asked God to give him wisdom and patience to know what to do. I told him I felt God was using him in a mighty way to spread the love of God. It is a real privilege to be there for them and pray and encourage them. May God continue to bless and protect our little chapter so that it will bear much fruit for God.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
