Over 1,000 Hondurans turn to Christ!

1000-Hondurans-01Yesterday—May 29th—we returned from Sonaguera, Honduras! The Regionwide Crusade we conducted May 25-28 had a broad-reaching impact! Located near the North coast with a population of 40,000 people, Sonaguera is a “subculture” within Honduras and has various forms of religious and cultural idolatry blended into their society. At the conclusion of the crusade and school programs, the local crusade chairman said, “this is the first time the churches in our area have conducted an event of this magnitude, and the event had a tremendous impact in our community. I had people come to me at the conclusion of the crusade and say, ‘I am not a Christian yet, but I would like to go to your church to hear more about it.’”

1000-Hondurans-02Over 3,000 people gathered in a soccer field to listen to what the Bible says about life and death. When the GOOD NEWS was proclaimed and an opportunity was presented to the crowds of people to respond, 125 men, women, youth, and children decided to accept, and to begin following, Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! Those who made decisions for Christ were joined by Counselors who had been trained weeks in advance by our Honduran Crusade Director, Pastor Victor Almendarez (right top photo). After the people made the greatest decision of their lives—to say yes to Jesus Christ—the Counselors (right bottom photo) began the follow-up of each person by getting their personal contact information and connecting them to a local church.

In tandem with the Crusade, our partner Honduran evangelist, Frank Salazar (2nd photo above), and our team member, Pastor Mike McGuire (photo on right), spoke in local public schools and universities. Accompanied by local pastors, Frank and Mike talked to the students about life issues they face, such as education and peer pressure and drugs and alcohol. Then, they used the Bible to show the students how God can be the most important part of their lives. Together, Frank and Mike led 972 students to repent of their personal sin and by faith turn to Jesus Christ! Some of these students then attended the Crusade and brought family and friends with them.

One of the things I am really looking forward to in Heaven is being able to introduce you personally to all of the people you have helped this ministry lead to Jesus Christ (1,097 individuals came to Christ in this project alone)! All of these people in other countries who make commitments to Christ through our events are real people with real souls. In Heaven, when you meet them face-to-face, you will then realize—FOR ALL ETERNITY—just how much of a changing impact your support made in their lives and in their eternities! Thank you for uniting with us in the eternal cause of Christ!

For The Kingdom,

Scott Nute
