Another 40 Days for Life campaign is in the books, and we know of 588 babies saved from abortion--with reports continuing to come in!
Margaret in Sarasota, Florida approached a man sitting in his pickup truck alone near Planned Parenthood. Just a few minutes earlier, he accompanied a woman inside the abortion facility.
When she realized the man spoke Spanish, Margaret decided to phone a friend.
She called another team member, Gloria, who halted a work meeting to have her colleagues pray for the abortion-vulnerable couple while she counseled the man in his native tongue.
The discussion revealed that the couple was advised to abort due to a medical problem. But after talking with Gloria, the man texted his wife. They left Planned Parenthood, visited the local pregnancy help center, and chose life!
"It was a pro-life team effort at its best!" Margaret said. "Praise God!"
Maureen in Jos said it hasn't been an easy campaign...but it has been a fruitful one.
"It has not been easy because of a lack of support for those who chose life for their babies," she explained.
But Maureen and her team are standing in the gap to support moms who opt against abortion--and that's resulted in four saved babies!
"Praising God for a young couple who changed their minds late Thursday afternoon!" wrote Margarita, the longtime Atlanta leader.
"We had been thinking about [abortion]," the man said as the couple's other two children in the back seat played with a kitten. "But then we were like, 'Nah.'"
Vigil participants offered the family a Bible, a grocery store gift card, and a baby shower. All three offers were gratefully accepted.

Hilda reported FIVE saved babies this campaign.
One married couple was advised to abort because the mom had a C-section less than two years ago and was told to wait before having more children.
A prayer warrior directed them to the local pregnancy help center for life-affirming support.
"They were able to see their 10-week-old baby on the ultrasound and received the help and guidance they needed and really wanted," Hilda said.
On this rock I will build my church; the gates of hell will not prevail against it.

Father, we have done battle with the power of evil, and therefore we can have compassion on those still within its grip. We have been freed from the kingdom of darkness, and therefore we can bear witness to your Kingdom of Light. May the witness of all your people through these 40 Days for Life bear abundant fruit.
