"All throughout the day, people come and go, praying, fasting and witnessing with love so that God's message is heard," said Eileen in Spring Valley.

The volunteers often hear that message reflected back to them through the people they meet on the sidewalk.

A woman stopped by the 40 Days for Life vigil to share her story with the people praying. "She was told to abort her baby because the child would be born with Down syndrome," Eileen said.

But she rejected abortion, telling the volunteers, "This child is the light of my life! Thank you for what you are doing!"
