Your Outreach Worked

Posted on Fri, Jan 28, 2011 at 4:00 AM

When I met you I knew there was something special about you. The way your eyes lit up when you spoke and the smile that was so genuine. Even the things you talked about were different. You radiated positivity. You continually brought out the best in me and in everyone you met. I later found out that you were Christian and belonged to a club on campus. You invited me to come to an event. Normally I would have said no because religion wasn’t for me, but I was so intrigued by you and your happiness I went, hoping that I could figure out the source. I wanted to thank you for your courage. God and religion are taboo subjects, and I must have definitely seemed like the type that would have rejected you (I was). It has been three years since then, and they have been the happiest! I have made so many amazing friends through you. You also introduced me to the topic of God, which is wildly interesting and has given me something to think about for the rest of my life! —Could've Cancelled Onya
