God opens and shuts doors!

hindu-in-indiaGod opens and shuts doors! Because the Lord is all knowing HE has chosen to shut the door for our Regionwide Crusade that was to take place next week, February 9-10, in India. A few weeks before I was to leave, the India consulate rejected my visa due to “previous activities.” In other words, the last Crusade we conducted in India (see video clip on our website) had such an impact for Jesus Christ that we have been “blacklisted” from India. I was ready to go and preach The Cross and see many Hindus, like the lady in the photo, meet Jesus! Yet, we, and the 200 churches in 41 villages we had been working with, surrender to God’s will. And, we move on.

In 2014, our ministry received $80,806 in donations. We are grateful to God for this support! Yet, this amount is down from the year before when in 2013 we received $104,000 of support. Our goal is to have a minimum of $250,000 support each year. I am praying and asking God specifically for an increase of $170,000 this year that will take us to the minimum goal of $250,000. Reaching this goal means we will accept more invitations for Crusades in more countries around the world! Plus, reaching this goal means we will conduct our Crusades (pre & post church mobilizations) on a higher level; which means we will reach more people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ; which means we will see more people accept Jesus Christ; which means we will be able to place more new Christians into the local churches we work with; which means—ultimately—we will see more disciples made that will be sent out into the harvest field of God’s Great Commission of Global Evangelization. THIS YEAR, and beyond, in several cities around the world, doors have opened for us to conduct STADIUM & ARENA CRUSADES, such as in Reina del Cisne Stadium in Loja, Ecuador, seen in the photo below. God willing, and as He provides, this year we will conduct my first Stadium & Arena Crusades…fulfilling a chronic “intangible” vision/dream engraved into my heart 25 years ago in 1990 when God first called me to be an evangelist, when I was the janitor at the Baptist Student Union of New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM, my hometown. I am praying that our friends who believe in this ministry will help us to conduct our Crusades around the world through which we will reach thousands of people with the message of The Cross!

stadium-crusadeMy prayers: 1) For the Lord to call the Christians who hear about and know about our ministry, but are not yet contributing, to begin helping us financially; 2) For the Lord to call our current financial partners to increase their monthly, or quarterly, or annual giving; And, 3) For the Lord to call MAJOR donors forward, those who have been blessed by God and are in a “unique” financial position…those who desire to play an extraordinary financial role in our ministry of winning thousands of people to Jesus Christ each year! I have been praying the Lord will give a CONVICTION OF DESIRE to certain people, and offer them the privileged opportunity to give a gift of $5,000, or $10,000, or $25,000, or $50,000, or $100,000, or $250,000, or $1,000,000, or more, to our cause of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to as many people around the world as possible. What level is on your heart to help…how many people—literally—do you desire to see turn to Jesus Christ this year?
