Some unexpected events unfolded at the 40 Days for Life campaign in Moscow. We sometimes hear complaints about vigil participants? signs. But in this case, there were complaints about the abortion center?s sign.

Arevik, one of the leaders in Moscow, said city employees arrived at the MedService facility ? and took down the sign advertising the business! ?It turned out,? she said, ?the banner had not been registered.?

No one knows who initiated the removal ? or why. ?But we do realize that this is the work of our prayers,? Arevik said, adding that the campaign has seen several other ?amazing results.?

The volunteers heard the abortion center?s doctors no longer do abortions after 12 weeks of pregnancy ? a change from previous practices. That?s at least a step.

The team also knows of two babies saved so far. One was the child of a married couple. ?They already have a 4-year-old,? Arevik said. ?The father didn?t want the abortion, but the mother did.? She didn?t think she could raise two young children.

Another woman spoke to one of the prayer volunteers ? and she too changed her mind.
