Since 2007, 191 abortion workers have converted and left their jobs through a 40 Days for Life campaign.

This is often a long, tough, and beautiful journey that shows the redemptive power of Jesus Christ.

This fall, the 40 Days for Life headquarters team's two former abortion workers have visited dozens of vigils to pray with and encourage prayer warriors...

...but before they hit the road, former abortion provider Dr. Haywood Robinson and longtime Planned Parenthood manager Sue Thayer joined me on The 40 Days for Life Podcast to provide an insider's view of the abortion industry:

Torrance, California

Sue's visit to Torrance drew the attention of the abortion center manager, who came out to meet her.

There weren't any signs that conversion was imminent, but Sue planted seeds.

Sue also met a cardiac surgeon who said 40 Days for Life participants are heroes. He noted that while he saves a life every month or so, 40 Days for Life saves countless lives every day!

St. Cloud, Minnesota

Judy in St. Cloud said recent 40 Days for Life rallies have drawn up to 50 attendees...

...but a recent visit from Haywood more than doubled that mark as 120 people showed up. "Families, teenagers, college kids, and lots of adults of all ages," Judy noted.

After Haywood spoke, the crowd processed to Planned Parenthood for a candlelight vigil.

"Keep in mind, the temperature was only 32 degrees Fahrenheit!"

Now these are Your servants and Your people, whom You have redeemed by Your great power, and by Your strong hand. O Lord, I pray, please let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of Your servants who desire to fear Your name.

-- Nehemiah 1:10-11

We pray for your continued guidance and protection throughout the remainder of this 40-day campaign. May we be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in Your work, knowing that our labor will not be in vain.
