There?s a new black iron fence around the late-term abortion center where the 40 Days for Life vigil is held ... and it blocks access to an area where volunteers were accustomed to praying. But Ken, the local leader, had a simple response: ?Prayer knows no boundaries.?

The campaign kickoff in Las Vegas event drew more than 100 people, including ten pastors. But what impressed Ken the most was a 15-month-old boy. ?It was only the second time in 25 years that I have been able to hold a child saved through pro-life efforts in which I was involved,? he said.


The boy?s mother had arrived at the abortion center and was met by one of the volunteers. But the mom spoke Spanish and the volunteer spoke English. They quickly found another vigil participant to serve as interpreter. The baby she was carrying was her family?s fifth child ? and first son.

Volunteers are praying that this abortion center will shut its doors. ?It would be the second to close where 40 Days for Life has prayed in Las Vegas,? Ken said. ?We pray it will close miraculously during this campaign!?
