I have on several occasions through the years at Southeastern had students tell me of a time they led an old friend or family member to Christ because they—sometimes at the last hour—made a call to someone a distance away just to turn in their witness report for class. I have heard of students who racked their brain trying to think of someone to talk to when they remembered a former roommate, an old teammate, or someone else from back home or from earlier college days.
Is there someone who needs a call? Take a moment to pray over this and ask the Lord for names.
