League Member Matt Anderson jumped at the opportunity to share Gospels of John as part of The League’s summer campaign to extend 500,000 invitations to meet Jesus. In fact, he was one of the first League Members to order, requesting 4 cases of Gospels.
You see, God had already been putting it on his heart to reach out in his community of Paterson, New Jersey, with a back-to-school outreach program through Star of Hope Ministries, an organization he leads that is committed to reducing poverty in his community. The Gospels were the perfect size and allowed them to introduce each child, who received one of their backpacks, to Jesus.
In total, as part of Star of Hope’s Project Backpack initiative, more than 1,700 kids received backpacks to start out their school year on the right foot – 1,700 children and their families received an invitation to meet Jesus in His own Word. All from a simple act of sharing!
“The beauty of this initiative is that each backpack was delivered by a pastor or community leader, connecting each child and family with the local church in their community,” shares Matt. “Each backpack is also packed with school supplies, and most importantly the Gospel of John that League Members like you helped provide.”
Is God calling you to something greater in this season? Like Matt, could you be a part of sharing Gospels in a meaningful way in your community? Maybe it is simply stocking up on Gospels to handout at the bus stop while you wait to pick up your kids. Or maybe there is a local food pantry or homeless shelter that could benefit from Gospels that you provide.
We are in the final weeks of The 500K Campaign but there is still time for you to join in and be a part of inviting 500,000 people to meet Jesus in His Word this summer. Order today and start praying now for how you can be a force for good in your community by not only meeting the physical needs of your neighbors but also spreading the Gospel!
