Haverhill, Massachusetts

It was great to meet Debbie, the new 40 Days for Life campaign leader in Haverhill.

She found herself praying alone on Day 1 … and she immediately prayed for help with the campaign. Later in the day, that help arrived.

A woman came out to the vigil and said she had just found out about 40 Days for Life and wanted to help in any way possible. “And wow! Has she backed up her words!” Debbie said. “She has been a huge help and was an answer to my prayer on Day 1!”

During this campaign, Debbie and her team are paying tribute to a longtime dedicated prayer warrior, John Cronin. John would pray every day at the abortion center in Haverhill during 40 Days for Life. He passed away on July 4 and Debbie wants everyone to make him proud.

On the days when John felt really ill, he would still go to the vigil and remain in his car to pray. He was that dedicated and never complained. I was fortunate to meet John’s wife, who was so inspired to see people coming out in his honor.
