When many Christians hear the word “evangelism,” they often picture gospel tracts, sidewalk outreach or street preachers with bullhorns. In today’s society, evangelism can equate to a simple step of engaging in one-on-one conversations about personal faith stories.
Global Outreach Day (May 21)—a day where believers across the U.S. will unite to share the Gospel—provides Christians with extra confidence to take this step and share their faith with others, knowing they are joined in their efforts by millions around the world.
Cru, an interdenominational Christian evangelism organization, is supporting Global Outreach Day by encouraging Christians to share their personal stories and introduce God’s story with others. While many Christians may feel unprepared, Cru offers simple ideas and tools for sharing their faith.
Global Outreach Day is an international movement to equip and mobilize Christians to proactively engage in conversations about their faith in Jesus Christ. For more information, click HERE.
“Love you, Dad. Miss you so much. Steph.”
A brokenhearted daughter scribbled those words on a sky lantern before setting it aloft. She had no way of knowing the lantern would fly halfway across the country.
Matt Mikalatos found the lantern, broken and crushed, the words still legible. As a father of three daughters, Matt could not let Steph’s heart-wrenching note go unanswered, but he wasn’t sure where he could find her. So he posted an open letter to her on his blog, which went viral overnight. Little did he know how that small act of kindness would lead him to the real Steph and change his family’s life in remarkable ways.
