The following report comes to us from team leader Nancy with our team in Gaithersburg, MD:
Sheila, Doug and I went out last Saturday spreading the good news and encouraging others in the faith. That was the case of the bus driver, Tom, who is a regular at the bus terminal. He came over to our table asking for a rosary and shared briefly with me before he had to get back on his bus that he had been away from the church. I encouraged him to recommit his life to the Lord and prayed over him. He felt rejuvenated and encouraged. It is such a privilege to know that we are there for these bus drivers who have a hard job. Many of them get off their bus and we equip them with the good news, Miraculous Medals, rosaries etc.
We also prayed with Wendy, who shared with us her struggles of her living situation and her children who have neglected to help her in any way. I sensed when she was talking in her broken English that she was carrying bitterness and anger in her heart and led her in a prayer to help her to forgive the people who have hurt her. She felt at peace after we prayed. We were grateful to be there for her and to remind her that she needs to cry out to God for peace and forgiveness. Please pray for Wendy that there will be reconciliation in her family. Please also pray for a young adult, Dan, whose father passed away from Covid and whose mother is sick, that God would comfort him and heal his mom. He was given a good news pamphlet and information about our church.
I have a continual intercession of the people at the bus terminal I pray every day for who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. Please pray for Shema, Wade, Kenneth, Carlos, Santos, Ed, and Bryan that God would free them and break the power of addiction over them in Jesus’s Name so they can come into the freedom of the children of God. One last request, please pray for Pat, an atheist, whom I talked with and shared my witness with, that God would draw her to Himself and reveal His love to her personally. Thank you to Amparo and Nelly who reached out to the Spanish community for their commitment and for Sheila, Doug and Tom for their ongoing support to SPSE and for all the intercessors. May God continue to bless and protect our little chapter and Our Lady guide us.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
