Still reaching people. So thank you again for your prayers for the Boise Catholic street evangelization effort.
The woman who caused us to have to sanitize several Rosaries the previous session, while she was making her choice, was back again. This time, she stuck with only her second choice. A woman with her asked for a black Rosary, but she was pointing to a dark blue one. So evangelist Lucy gave her a black one. The woman also wanted a second one “for a friend”, but Lucy invited her to ask her friend to come by. She came back again, later in the session. Not recognizing her at first, e. Chuck offered her a Rosary again, but she said she had a blue one.
A man from another country was on his phone, trying to meet up with friends. Catholic, he chatted with us briefly while waiting for his party to call him back. We didn’t have time to get him a map of local parishes before he received the call and left.
Another man, part of what looked like a two-family group, came and talked briefly with e. Chuck, accepting Rosary and pamphlet. Two girls from the same group, both under the age of 8, came to the table. They each accepted a Rosary, too.
A group of Christian young people all came to the table after the first woman stopped. They each accepted Rosary and booklet, and the encouragement to pray the Rosary to grow closer to Jesus Christ.
“Cole” passed 4 or 5 times, doing his laps. We hadn’t seen him for a month or so. He greeted us, but didn’t say much.
There was noticeably less foot traffic during the session, possibly due to a combination of two factors. The weather was unseasonably cool and breezy. Plus, the mayor of the city had rolled back the reopening phase, due to a sudden increase in cases. Still, the two evangelists gave away 12-15 Rosaries and its booklet.
Please pray for us again today? Ask God to send people to us prepared to perceive their need for Our Savior Jesus Christ and for His Holy Catholic Church. Please ask that much good fruit for His Kingdom comes of today’s efforts.
Still out there, trying to reach people for Jesus Christ and the salvation He offers. 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!
