As with most of the campaigns across the country, the Bloomington, Indiana, campaign got off to a frigid and snowy start.

But the sacrifice of being out there praying in such inclement weather is truly what moves hearts and gets people thinking.

?We've had one couple decide not to go through with their scheduled abortion,? said Monica in Bloomfield, ?another couple whom we took to the local pregnancy care center on the counseling day, and lots of good conversations with passersby.?

Volunteers have also had opportunities to practice Christ's command to "bless those who persecute you."

Vigil participants also told of a mother and her son who stopped by to chat. The mom asked the boy if he?d be willing to pray outside for the babies. He said he could see himself doing that. They thanked the volunteers for being there. ?Hopefully,? Monica said,? they will be back to join us!?
