?Not even two hours into the first day of our 40-day vigil,? said Jill, the 40 Days for Life coordinator in Manhattan, ?and we are already saving lives.?

Jill was just leaving her apartment, which is not far from the Planned Parenthood abortion center.

?A young woman stopped me and asked for directions to 26 Bleecker Street ? an all-too-familiar address. I asked if she was going to Planned Parenthood, and told her that place was bad news.?

Jill gave her contact information for the Sisters of Life. Still, the young woman walked inside.

But she wasn?t there long. She came back out and told Jill the abortion facility was ?really scary.?

She texted the Sisters of Life and made plans to meet with them.

?God wants us to know that we are doing His work,? Jill said. ?He answers our prayers and rewards us for being public witnesses of His Word.?
