Your behavior toward your family and neighbors should reflect Christ, and you can as well take the teachings of Jesus Christ to the streets, preaching the word of God to those who are willing to listen.
Evangelism has been around for a long time, as evidenced by preachers on the streets carrying megaphones, bells, and Bibles, urging people to live a decent life. For some, it is a part of daily life, and it necessitates uniqueness. That is how Evangelist Gbadamosi Ismail popularly known as Daddy 'Lori Iro' rose to fame in Nigeria.
