Ever since 40 Days for Life began, it?s become fairly common for people to look for vigils to visit while they?re traveling ? whether it?s a business trip, a holiday excursion or a religious pilgrimage.

We often hear of vacationers from many different parts of the United States praying at vigils in the Orlando, Florida area, for instance.? We had a story of some Midwesterners stopping at a vigil site in England. Already in this campaign, we heard from Floridians who prayed at Boston?s vigil just last week.

Now we have a photo to share from Californians in Croatia!

Patti, the San Fernando Valley campaign leader, sent the picture, saying, ?A few of us were on a pilgrimage to Medjugorje ? so we joined the 40 Days for Life kickoff in Metkovic, Croatia! We love these people -- they're awesome!?

So if you?re traveling between now and November 6 ? check for a 40 Days for Life location at your destination. Even if it?s in another country, everyone will be speaking the language of prayer.
