Never underestimate the effect of a small gesture!

Every Baxter student has a story to tell- a story about their transformed lives, about their walk with Christ, or about an event that changed their life. Cuban student Yordano Benavides has his own story to tell. His story is about the act of one person whose continued small acts of evangelism changed his life.

In a dinner with some of the first-year students and president Steve Teel along with his wife Dianna, Yordano shared that an elderly Christian neighbor would hand him a slip of paper with a Bible verse on it every day for more than three months as he left for work. However, every day he would throw them away without reading them. Until, one day he read one and it was just what he needed in that moment. He then went to a small group Bible study that led to his baptism, confirming Paul’s words that were written on the slip, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans‬ ‭8:28! Even small gestures may be used by the Lord to reach those around you.

”Verse” Evangelism. Last night we had 3 freshman couples over for supper. Due to paperwork they arrived three months late. Each of them sold everything they had to be able come to Baxter – incredible sacrifice!Yordano, a Cuban, shared how an elderly Christian neighbor would hand him a slip of paper with a Bible verse on it every day he left for work. He would not read them, but throw them away … but one day he read one, and it was just what he needed. He then went to small group Bible study that led to his baptism, confirming Paul’s words written on the slip, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans‬ ‭8:28‬. Many thanks for the efforts of a Christian sister’s “verse” evangelism. #baxtercuba #baxterevangelism
