Gerry lives in Sherman, Texas. He had thought about applying to lead a 40 Days for Life campaign in his town in the fall of 2010 but, in his words, he “chickened out.” Finally, in the spring of 2011, he got up the nerve to apply to lead a local campaign.
Boy, is he glad he did!
During their 40 Days for Life this past spring, Gerry and the volunteers in the Sherman campaign developed a relationship with the manager of the Planned Parenthood facility outside of which they were holding their vigil. God answered the prayers of Gerry and his team when that manager — Ramona Trevino — quit her job and that Planned Parenthood office went out of business.
This past summer, 40 Days for Life national director David Bereit joined Gerry and all the faithful Sherman prayer warriors for a celebration rally outside that closed Planned Parenthood … and they were joined by Ramona, who thanked God — and the 40 Days for Life volunteers — for getting her out of Planned Parenthood.
