“An act of love as simple as giving batteries to a stranger can soften their heart just enough to receive the gospel we share with them.”
Michael Pogue, master’s student, shared this thought after the NOBTS team of students and faculty went door-to-door in Gentilly two weeks ago handing out free smoke alarm batteries and sharing the gospel. Three came to faith in Christ that day.
A second opportunity to hand out 9 volt batteries and share the gospel is Thursday, May 5, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Families are invited to participate. The event will close with snowballs and fellowship.
“What a wonderful way to close out the semester and academic year in which the core value of Mission Focus has been promoted,” said Dr. Preston Nix, evangelism professor and Levell Center director.
Dr. Nix said this second opportunity was added after the first event on April 21 proved to be so successful and so enjoyed by team members.
Participants will meet at the Leavell Center at 1:30 p.m. for a brief orientation. Teams will be led by faculty members. The project is sponsored by the Leavell Center for Evangelism and Church Health in partnership with Gentilly Baptist Church. For information, contact the Leavell Center at ext. 8820.
