Today was the day that the 180 movie was released. And today was the day that Kim, myself and Nicole, along with our pastor, Bob Doble, began to spread the word about it.
Armed with Nicole's homemade "180MOVIE.COM" business card sized flyers, we set out at noon just outside the campus gates at the University of Ottawa and handed these generic flyers to almost 1000 students who happened to pass by in the hour and a half that we were there.
The only image and info on these little flyers was the 180 logo pointing to the website address where the film can be viewed. As we were offering them out, we would say, "This is a link to an online documentary that you might be interested in viewing." Most were satisfied with just being informed of that as they made their way to their next class.
We handled it that way in order to prevent ourselves from being drawn into a sidewalk debate about abortion as that was not what we were there for. It also kept peoples' curiosity at a peak which would most likely ensure that they would watch the film.
Close to one thousand flyers went out and a few 180 logo posters were taped or pinned here and there, as well. An hour and a half (for me, in between my work shifts) well spent.
We are praying that this video will go "viral"; that many would come to the same conviction and conclusion regarding their position on abortion; and that many would also hear and respond to the saving gospel of Jesus Christ which was appropriately presented as part of all this, as well.
We plan to continue to 'spread the word' in days to come for the sake of the voice of those who don't have one and for the glory of God.
