$2.14 Per Honduran Soul

We are sending our November ministry update to you early because of the timing and approaching budget deadline of our upcoming crusade November 6-7, in Santa Rosa, Honduras. We have a tremendous opportunity to impact an entire region with the Message of Jesus Christ, and I wanted to share how you can be personally involved in a very special way!

honduras1In April of this year we were in Honduras conducting our first stadium crusade, and it was tremendously blessed by God! We saw over 20,000 people attend the two-night event, with over 800 people making life-changing decisions to publicly repent of their sins and to, by faith, trust in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior! A most significant part of the fruit resulting from that event was the generous and “specific” financial gifts we received from many of our ministry partners! The designated special gifts we received enabled our ministry to rent 155 public buses/vans, which brought thousands of people to hear about the love and hope of Jesus Christ (like the young boys to the left who, after they received Christ, were getting follow-up from a counselor we trained). And very soon in Santa Rosa, just like this past April, our ministry has been presented with a huge opportunity to once again impact an entire region in Honduras with the message of The Cross!

Santa Rosa, Honduras is a town of 42,000 people. Within a 60-mile radius there are over 15 additional small towns/villages, which means we can reach over 100,000 people through this crusade. Our Latin Crusade Director, and the involved local churches, have worked together to strategically set up a public transport system that will send buses throughout the entire region to pick up, bring, and return, countless families, youth, and children, to this unique event. The crusade is being held in a soccer stadium (at no charge) that is centrally located in this region, and the seating capacity, plus field capacity, is around 12,000. It will cost, on average, $2.14 to bring one person each night to and from the crusade. Due to the poverty level of Honduras, many people can’t attend the crusade unless transportation is provided for them. Up to 140 churches throughout the region have requested buses so that they can attend the crusade.

Will you help us bring thousands of Honduran people to hear how much Jesus Christ loves them? To fill the stadium with people, we need a minimum of $17,000 to be donated and designated specifically to the “Santa Rosa Honduras Transport.” Please consider giving a designated gift today, and 100% of your gift will be used to rent buses/vans like the one in the photo below that we rented earlier this year. You can give a convenient and safe online gift right now through our website. Or, sending your gift to our office would be greatly appreciated! Please be sure and designate your gift to the “Santa Rosa Honduras Transport.”

honduras2Over 250 Christian volunteers from the involved churches throughout Santa Rosa have already been trained by our Crusade Director in how to follow up with those who will come to Christ through this crusade. These dedicated believers are excited and ready to connect the new believers to a local church for spiritual growth! Thank you for helping us to both win the lost to Christ, and to train Christians for ministry service!

For winning the lost of Latin America,

Crusade of Hope recap

crusade-of-hopeThe Crusade of Hope we just conducted in Hobbs, New Mexico (my home-state) on September 13-16 was a special experience! What a unique blessing it was to have some dear long-time friends from throughout NM attend the crusade, where we caught up on some wonderful fellowship! The Spirit of God moved through the crusade and impacted hundreds of lives throughout the Lea County NM area. With a population around 35,000 people, Hobbs consists mainly of smaller churches, and 24 of these churches united together for this event. In total, we reached close to 2,000 people with the Good News of Jesus Christ, and 94 people made a public decision for Jesus Christ during the event, of which 29 were people who made a first-time decision to repent and surrender to Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior! Join us in prayer for these precious lives who made commitments to the Lord, as they now begin to be nurtured into disciples through the involved local churches.

Here are a few testimonies of lives that were impacted: Several professors and coaches at a local college offered extra credit to their students if they attended the crusade…several students attended and two accepted Jesus Christ! Another woman, who turned to Christ a few months ago, invited her daughter to the crusade. The daughter attended the last night, and during the last call of the last stanza of the invitation, she came forward and surrendered to Christ! A man whose 21-year-old daughter recently passed away was deeply touched by a testimony from one of the band members. He received counsel and his faith in Christ was reinforced, and he was connected to a local church for spiritual growth and also for grief counseling. Your ministry partnership helped us to touch these lives with the love of Jesus Christ!

Next up—our Latin American team is fast at work preparing for our upcoming crusade in Santa Rosa, Honduras, November 4-7! Christians and church leaders in the involved local churches are already being equipped and mobilized for this unique event, and they are preparing to see their family, friends, and neighbors, turn to Jesus! I look forward to sharing more details with you next month about this exciting opportunity!

gods-paper-boy-bookcoverLast year a friend from church, writer Nita DeBorde, contacted me in regard to us working together to write a biography about my life and ministry. The book—God’s Paper Boy—is now finished. If you would like to purchase copies, the book is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle e-book versions.

Thank you for your support and prayers! Your partnership in the Gospel is helping to change the lives of individuals and families throughout America and the globe!

 

For changing lives…worldwide,
