Spread the seeds of love around

Evangelization is not coming up to a person and asking, “Have you been saved? Do you accept Jesus as your savior?” It is more of planting seeds to people who seem lost, unhappy or having something missing in their life. That something is the joy of Jesus Christ.
We have gone to many places and have left rosaries and talked to people. It may take awhile for this seed to mature but we give them a name of someone or a place they can go for further help.
One gentleman was given a rosary with the method on how to pray it and was invited to come back. We saw him a month later and he said he wore that rosary every day. When he didn’t wear it, he felt like he was missing something. That was a seed. Last week he came and said he had lost it and could he get another one? Fifteen minutes later, another gentleman came up and wanted to know if he could get one too. He said he was new in town and was looking for a church.
It may be the next year, the next week, or the next person, but seeds are growing. Can you help spread seeds of God’s love around?

“I planted, Apollos watered, but God caused the growth. Therefore, neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who causes the growth.”–1st Corinthians 3:6-7.
