?I was blessed to witness a child saved from abortion,? said one of the 40 Days for Life volunteers in Charleston.

A woman walked out of the abortion center and gave the vigil participant a thumbs-up.

?I waved her over and she told me that her daughter was in the clinic and had planned to have an abortion because she and her boyfriend were breaking up,? the volunteer said. ?The mother said that she had been trying to talk her daughter out of the abortion and had even offered to raise the child for her.?

Everything she had tried had failed, so she asked the vigil participants to pray for her daughter. The mother went back inside.

It wasn?t long afterward that she came back out ? along with her daughter and her daughter?s boyfriend. They quickly got in their car and drove away.

?Many thanks to all who were praying that morning and to all who will be praying during this campaign,? said the Charleston team member. ?And many thanks to the Holy Spirit who hears our prayers and answers them!?
