Generosity in Pennsylvania

Our Crossroads walk is filled with unexpected encounters. For example, last week (or was it 2 weeks ago?) we'd just finished our day shift somewhere in north central PA and decided to stop by a roadside ice cream shop for a sweet treat. The middle-aged woman, Anne*, who took our order was curious about our shirts (as most people are) so of course we delivered our usual explanation of Crossroads. She then shared that one of her employees, 19 year old Rebecca*, was struggling from the aftereffects of an abortion she had had within the past year. We proceeded to tell Anne about Project Rachel and Rachel's Vineyard. Anne plans to pass the information on to Rebecca and we continue to hold Rebecca, along with all post-abortive women, in our prayers.

Anne didn't let us pay for our ice cream that evening, in fact, she donated the amount that would have been our bill. I never cease to be amazed by the generosity and kindness of the many, many Americans we have encountered this summer. Wow.

Passionate for Life,
