We know that the prayers at 40 Days for Life vigils save lives.

Did you know that social media photos of 40 Days for Life vigils also save lives? It?s true!

?Just now,? said Joe, the 40 Days for Life leader in Hong Kong, ?for the first time, I saw a picture of a baby whose mother chose life because of the work of 40 Days for Life!?

At some point last year, the mom had booked an abortion at Family Planning Association. But prior to that appointment, she was on Facebook ? and saw a picture of two people praying there with the 40 Days for Life team.

The mom changed her mind! Her son is now six months old ? and very happy.

?We have no way to know how many other stories there are like this one, or what impact our prayers and activities can have,? Joe said. ?But even if we never know on this side of eternity, we can be confident that we are building a culture of life, and that many lives will be saved.?
