Chain Reaction

I'm taking this from a homework assignment for my Christian Leadership class:

In 1858, a Sunday school teacher, a Mr. Campbell, led a Boston shoe clerk to give his life to Christ.

The clerk, Dwight L. Moody, became an evangelist and in England in 1879 awakened evangelistic zeal in the heart of Frederick B. Meyer, a pastor of a small church.

F.B. Meyer, preaching on an American campus, brought a student to Christ named J. Wilbur Chapman.

Chapman engaged in YMCA work and employed a former baseball player, Billy Sunday, to do evangelistic work.

Sunday held a revival in Charlotte, NC.

A group of local men were so enthusiastic afterwards that they planned another evangelistic campaign, bringing Mordecai Hamm to town to preach.

In the revival, a young man named Billy Graham heard the gospel and yielded his life to Christ...

and the story goes on.

We never know who we are influencing by what we say, the way we act, and the things we fill our time with. Be INTENTIONAL about the way you live your life and the way you interact with people. You just never know!
