What difference can one person make? More than you might think!

Ann in Richmond shared the story of a 40 Days for Life volunteer who has helped the local campaign grow larger and stronger.

?She joined our team a couple of years ago and immediately showed her level of commitment as she attended meetings and planned events with us,? Ann said.

But this year, she decided to do more. She approached her pastor and asked permission to invite the church to take a more active role in 40 Days for Life.

Her initiative led the Knights of Columbus to print 1,300 flyers that were put into Sunday bulletins. The volunteer then invited parishioners to join her on the sidewalk in front of the abortion center.

The following week, the first group came to the vigil. ?They met at the church and drove together,? Ann said. ?They brought flowers to leave at the site. And they prayed together.?

The team member said she?d have been happy if just a few had been there.

?In fact,? Ann said, ?a dozen came. And they have all been invited to come back next week, same day, same time. This kind of new vitality inspires us all!?
