I love this photo from @larrykim
A 28-year-old job hunter sent pizza and doughnuts to companies in the hope they would give him work in return! 😎🥧 pic.twitter.com/jf1DO9nC65

This is what #hustle looks like. This photo says everything about a man willing to reach his goals by smuggling his resume in a gift. It’s a Trojan Horse or rather a Trojan Pizza.
It makes me think of how we “sneak” the gospel to our students. We buy pizza, play games, organize service projects, all the while sharing/living the gospel.
As youth workers, and as Christians, this photo should inspire us to include the gospel in our simplest actions. What if we delivered pizza to all our neighbors with a message written inside that said,
We just wanted to let you know that God loves pizza and He loves you. If you have any prayer requests please feel free to e-mail me at ________________
Love, your neighbor
What a simple concept with potentially life changing results.
Just like the man who courted potential employers, we can send a message to our neighbors that will not soon be forgotten.
If you are looking for more outreach ideas, I recommend the book Conspiracy of Kindness by Steven Sjogren
