"As my husband and I drove up to the Planned Parenthood abortion referral facility at 6:00 this morning," said Cheryl in Wenatchee, "we noticed a group of men standing across the street in a huddle."

She wasn't expecting prayer volunteers, since no one had signed up for that hour on the Wenatchee 40 Days for Life schedule. For a very brief moment, she wondered if they might be hecklers.

"Uh-oh," she said to her husband. "They?re here!"

Well ? not exactly. It was a men's prayer group from the Living Room Church.

"Their presence was a complete surprise!" Cheryl said. "They prayed with us and for us, and then spent the hour standing on the sidewalk with us. They were a gift from God. We're still smiling!"
