Baltimore, Maryland

“God uses every encounter we have at the abortion clinic,” said Julia in Baltimore, “no matter how seemingly small.” Such was the case in an exchange between one of the 40 Days for Life volunteers and a passing driver.

The vigil participant was holding a sign with the message, “My heart was beating 18 days from conception.”

“A woman got out of her car, approached me and handed me a dollar,” the volunteer explained. “She pointed to the sign and indicated that it was for the baby. I asked if she wanted me to donate it to Pregnancy Center West, and she nodded her head.”

She isn’t completely sure the woman understood her. “But I’ve got that dollar in a Pregnancy Center West envelope that I’m about to send out,” she said. “God is at work!”
