Catalyzing A Million Smiles By Any Means Necessary
I have been so moved lately by 1 Corinthians 9:22 (KJV) which says, “to the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.” You know... during these trying times, I felt the call to catalyze a million smiles by any means necessary. I was blessed last year to ”don we now our gay apparel, fa la la, la, la, la, la... la.. la...” I just love the Christmas season!!! I hope you started singing. Lol! Anyway, I was blessed last year with an opportunity to dress in the festive red suit, sit and cuddle with some beautiful and amazing children and take photos as families from all over the nation smiled. COVID-19 tried to put a wrench in the machine this year; however, I couldn’t let mean’ole COVID-19 stop #BroHoHo. #BroHoHo has a purpose as do all things. Isaiah 43:7 says, “Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.” My prayer since my true encounter with Christ on the campus of NC State University in 1995 was for God to be glorified in all that I say and do. I must say, He has held me to that prayer! I, Titus Lamont Hopper, a.k.a. “Hop The Black Santa”, a.k.a #BroHoHo exists to “play a key role in making people’s lives more significant and to give them the joy of experiencing God’s presence, God’s purpose, God’s love and God’s power" and if it takes me transforming into #BroHoHo in order to catalyze a million smiles, then I’ll do it! As a matter of fact, I did it!!! With the help and support of my amazing wife, we launched www.hoptheblacksanta.com November 25th, 2020 as a tool to help us with our mission to catalyze a million smiles! By any means necessary we intend to do our part to combat hate, political and geographical divisiveness, inequities, all those ”isms” and plain'ole meanness by allowing God to use us as conduits for the sweet fruit of Galatians 5. By any means #BroHoHo’s intentions are to be as harmless as a dove as he becomes all things to share the true reason for the season. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life! I invite you to join the movement to catalyze a million smiles! Let the Peace of God, good will and the love of Christ spread like wildfire this holiday season by any means necessary!!!
