At the 40 Days for Life vigil outside the abortion center in Milwaukee, it was sunny but bitter cold.

?I've always thought it the coldest spot in Milwaukee,? said one of the team members, ?but your prayers warmed the hearts of four women who did not keep their appointments to abort and chose life instead!?

While the abortion center?s escorts were busy telling a couple they didn't need to talk to the vigil participants, one of the volunteers asked the couple if they?d been able to see their ultrasound.

They said ?yes.?

?Then I asked if they were going to keep their baby ? and they said ?yes!? I told them free help was available at the pregnancy care center if they needed it. Praise God! Baby saved!?

One of the abortion facility workers made fun of two of elderly vigil participants who use canes to help them walk. ?He must have known deep down how effective their prayers are,? said the team member. ?Keep your prayers coming, everyone!?
