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

God is love, and He wants us to come to Him and be saved (cf. John 5:40). So, thank you again for your prayers for the Boise Catholic street evangelization effort.

“Uwe” stopped to talk as we were setting up the table. As usual, he began with pleasantries about the weather. But then he asked if we ever had people actually stop to take a Rosary? Did we give them only to Catholics? What did we say to them? We told him we gave Rosaries to all kinds of people who want one: Catholics and non-Catholics, Christians and non-Christians, the hostile, and the indifferent. We encourage them to pray. At this, he interjected, “And to be good. That’s the thing, to be good.” We replied that the most important thing is to be in a faithful relationship with Jesus Christ, Who died for us. With a smile he said, “And to be good. We better leave it there while we are still friendly.” And he continued on his walk. Please pray for Uwe, that his heart becomes open to conversion.

A man declined a Rosary, saying he identified with a sinful lifestyle. May God show him that his identity is deeper than what he’s currently doing. Lord, heal him and bring him to salvation!

A man, accompanied by 2 boys (maybe 4 and 8 years old) declined a Rosary. The older boy, though, wanted one. “If it’s okay with your dad,” we said. The father gave permission, so we helped both boys choose a Rosary and gave them the pamphlet.

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.

God is willing to forgive those who ask Him, but the difficult thing is to convince them to stop running away from Him. So, thank you again for your prayers and other support for this apostolate. In turn, may God protect and greatly bless you and all those you love!
