Tucson, Arizona

Matt in Tucson tells of a woman who parked her car near the prayer volunteers … and got out with a huge smile on her face. At first, she just asked, “What are you doing out here?”

The volunteers said not everyone is aware of this, but the building they’re in front of is an abortion center. “We are praying for everyone going in there today … and for an end to abortion.”

“I actually just came from the clinic,” she said, “and I had a sonogram. I am about eight weeks along and my fiancé doesn’t even know I’m here.” He was very much against the abortion, she said. “I’ve changed my mind now and I’m going to keep the baby!”

The volunteers gave her information about local pregnancy resources and told her to get in touch if they can help in any way.

“This reminded us of the importance of being out there,” Matt said. “Let us continue to pray for her.”
