"A big thank you to everyone that joined us during these last 40 days!"

That was the message Gabriela, the local 40 Days for Life leader, delivered to the volunteers who prayed outside the abortion center in El Paso.

"We had the honor of having Bishop Mark Seitz lead us in prayer during the Jericho March, in which we walked around the block seven times," she said. "It was a reenactment of the Battle of Jericho found in Joshua 6."

The El Paso closing event also included testimonies about babies saved during the campaign. "We ended the night with awards for all the churches that adopted a day on the sidewalk."
