This report comes from team leader Lucy in Boise, ID:
At the start of the session and before our table was even filled with Rosaries, three older teenage boys came up, though only one actually wanted a Rosary. He was not familiar with the devotion and, when asked if he was Christian, he sheepishly replied, “I’m not really anything.” Chuck thanked him for being honest and shared with him the Good News of Christ as illustrated through the Mysteries of the Rosary. He told him that talking with the guy who died for you was a good way to answer questions like: why do I exist? He nodded and said that was a really important question. So, the evangelist handed him the “Who Am I?” pamphlet, which he didn’t want, but then accepted when assured that it didn’t mention God. The other two teens declined a Rosary and, as they were leaving, the evangelist told them that, of the three of them, the guy with the Rosary was the brave one. Pray that the seeds of the Good News take root in their hearts.
As Chuck was talking to the three teenagers, the Holy Spirit must have moved a woman pushing an old man in a wheelchair to stop, edge past the boys to select a Rosary, and move on, all without saying a word. The evangelist noticed just in time to hand her a Rosary pamphlet. May she continue to answer the Holy Spirit’s call.
John, the retired parking lot attendant, arrived on his electric scooter because his back is giving him trouble again. Please continue to pray for his wife Linda’s upcoming shoulder surgery, and for John’s healing as well.
Praised be Jesus Christ! Please pray for us again today. Ask God to prepare people’s hearts to perceive their need for Our Savior Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church, and that much good fruit for His Kingdom comes of today’s efforts.
