Random Act of Kindness

 An army of volunteers from Gateway will be going out to spread kindness in a variety of ways this week!  We want to start a movement by spreading the love of Jesus in practical ways all over our community.


Here are some of your stories of

Letting the before school ladies at Austin Peay Elementary know how much they are appreciated and loved. I see them up there early every morning, while I am running, ready to come take care of those precious kiddos. -we brought pumpkin muffins, dark chocolate cocoa and arm-knitted scarves to warm them up!

“I just paid for a lady’s breakfast at IHOP and sent a Random act of Kindness card to her. She told the waitress that that is the 3rd time that has happened to her! 3rd time a Christian has done that for her! Tell me the Lord isn’t working on her!”

Layton did some random acts today by giving away some of her chickens eggs! She feeds, waters and collect eggs daily from her chickens. This was her special way of sharing the love of Jesus.

We bought a beautiful arrangement of flowers and a balloon. Then gave them to the florist. We told her SHE is beautiful and Jesus LOVES her!

The lady that lives next door is a widow. We try to take care of her throughout the year. This week, it was covering her faucets in time for the cold snap.


kindness of kids with candy

These sweet children are so excited to do their random act of kindness. They have been sitting at the end of our driveway giving away free candy and drinks for the past two hours. So proud of them!


 2013 Random Acts of Kindness Day

GE DIGITAL CAMERAI made cupcakes for Dani’s birthday so decided I’d treat my mail carrier on Tues. 10/08/13. She said it made her day to find a sweet treat she’d been craving( she ate it on the spot) and an ice cold soda, along with a note of appreciation .

GE DIGITAL CAMERAIn my mail at that same time was a sweet card and note from an old friend who was prompted to pray for me and let me know she misses me.  How ironic is that?  We can never outgive God. -Pat Ward


They nurses and doctors that took care of Mom while she was recovering from heart surgery was the best. They were all very nice and attentive to her needs. When we checked her out on Monday I took them a thank you card and some cookies. We got the surgery team a card for Mom to take on Wednesday to her follow up appointment. So thankful for there skill and caring heart.

  1. I was a “victim” of your Random Act of Kindness yesterday morning at the drive-thru at McDonald’s in Millington. Thank you to the wonderful Godly lady who paid for my breakfast and thank you Gateway Baptist Church for spreading the love of Christ. I am Christian and know Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior so I wanted to keep the Act of Kindness going, so paid for the next person’s meal (although I kept the card – that was my little “Happy”). Keep up the good work and may God get all the glory.

  2. I just went into my stuff at work & pulled out one of your cards with a $20 behind it. That is so sweet! Whomever you are: thank you! This thoughtfulness makes me realize that somehow, somewhere, somebody has seen through my disguise 😊💛
