?We had a save the very first day in Boston,? said Rita, the local coordinator. This was one of those situations where just being there made all the difference in the world.

?I didn't feel like we did anything, really,? she said. ?We were praying outside with signs. Soon after we arrived, a woman came out for a smoke, looked at us and went back in.?

Not long afterward, the woman left the building again ? this time with a younger woman who appeared to be her teenage daughter.

?She said they thought she was four weeks pregnant but the ultrasound said she was ten weeks,? Rita recalls. ?She said there was no way they were going to abort.? They took pregnancy help resources and quickly left.

?I think the signs and the prayer helped, but it was mostly God's grace,? Rita said. ?We were not expecting it. We had NO saves last campaign!?
