This report comes to us from team leader Lucy with our team in Boise, ID:

God continues to show His mercy. People continue to receive the Rosary. So thank you again for your prayers for the Boise Catholic street evangelization effort.

A couple stopped as I was struggling to get the table set up. The man offered to help and then happily undid the latches for me as his “good deed of the day”. May God bless him!

We have recently gotten in some “Green Scapulars” to have one hand. Although no visitor has yet to ask for one, we have two “Green Scapular” stories from this session to offer you.

A homeless-looking man, who seemed to be “not from around here”, was shouting angrily as he walked through the business park. The first time he passed by, I was busy explaining the Rosary devotion to a group of other people. He continued to shout at the other end of the square. When he turned around and started heading back my way, I quickly sent up some Green Scapular prayers for peace and for his conversion , (“Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.”) By the time he reached the table, he was calm and quiet. I offered him a Rosary, which he gratefully accepted. I heard no further disturbance from him afterwards. May God continue to bless and heal him.

A young adult man on a skateboard kept zooming back and forth close to our table, showing off his athletic balance skills. He ignored my offer of a Rosary, so I quit offering one after a few times. His expression, though, seemed to grow more and more mocking with each pass. People coming to our table had to be careful to not get run over by him. After what seemed to be 20 minutes of this increasingly disruptive behavior, I finally turned him over to Our Lady with the Green Scapular prayer, asking for peace for us and conversion for him. I didn’t see him again for the rest of the session. Thank you, Blessed Mother!

A couple stopped, perhaps out of pity after observing a large number of groups of people all tell me no thank you to my offer of a free Rosary. “Cory” and “Samaria” were non-Catholic Christians, in town for a marriage seminar that urged them to keep God in the center of their marriage. We talked for a bit about yes, it takes three to make a marriage: the man, the woman, and God. I described the Rosary devotion for them and encouraged them to use the prayer to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ. They each accepted one.

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.
