This report is a continuation from yesterday’s story and comes to us from team leader Lucy with our team in Boise, ID:

A 20-something couple said they were Catholic and took Rosaries and pamphlets. She tried unsuccessfully to put it over her head. May God grant that she reads the Rosary pamphlet, embraces the devotion, and grows in holiness.

A teenage couple with dyed hair and many piercings stopped to select a Rosary. Only the boy spoke. He said he didn’t know anything about the Rosary and was no longer Christian, though not anti-Christian. When asked why he was no longer Christian, he talked vaguely about past family/church issues from his “youth.” The evangelist begged them not to let some past hurt or misunderstanding keep them from the most important thing in anyone’s life: a relationship with God. He encouraged them to pray the Rosary and ask Jesus all the hard questions on their minds. They listened patiently and thanked us before moving on. Pray that their hearts are open to meeting their Lord and Savior in prayer.

Three middle-aged ladies responded, “We have Rosaries!”, as they passed by.

A woman accompanying her family proudly waved her wood, large-beaded Rosary in friendly solidarity with our efforts

Despite the chill resulting from the temperature inversion, there were a fair number of folks out and about. So, we gave away 15 to 20 Rosaries. We even gave out 5 or 6 chain Rosaries. There seemed to be a greater percentage of Catholics out this time.

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.
