Volunteers in Philadelphia called it ?a blessing in a blizzard.?

Well, it wasn?t so much a blizzard as it was an unexpected snowfall in the early morning hours. But it was enough to delay a young woman on her way to the abortion center.

Vigil participants, a pastor and a friend had encouraged her to reject abortion. But she got up that morning and headed to the appointment.

With the snow covering the roads, however, traffic was at a standstill. ?That pause gave her a chance to digest and choose to turn around and return home,? Monique, the local leader, said. ?That was when she decided to keep the baby.

She said it was an example of ?divine intervention in this crazy, out-of-the-blue, one-hour, completely unexpected snowstorm. And that beautiful girl and her child have been so blessed! Thank you for your prayers, my friends. Every single moment of prayer makes such a difference!?
