Celebrate Central Oregon Festival Report!

Our deepest gratitude for your faithful support that equipped us to reach Central Oregon with the Good News.
We couldn’t do what we do, without YOU!

February 2023: Ministry Snapshot

Every February, Valentine’s Day reminds us of the importance of celebrating those we love. But, as believers, we acknowledge that every month and every day is a time to be thankful for the love of God, and the incredible gift He has given us in His Son, Jesus! Therefore, we love because He first loved us! (1 John 4:19).
Our prayer as we serve, equip, and evangelize this year, is that we would—above all—carry with us the love of Christ, in all we do and say. That His love would compel us. That His love would transform and transcend cultural barriers. That His love would rule and reign here on earth, and in our hearts, just as it does in Heaven!

We want to share some praises and a prayer request with you:

Praise Report

We are praising the Lord for our fruitful time in Central Minnesota. It could not have gone better! We recorded multiple promo pieces (radio and video), spoke in two local churches, and held several affinity meetings:

  • A Steering Committee Kick-Off Dinner
  • A Leaders Brunch
  • Community Leaders Meeting
  • A Prayer and Praise Event where Nic Gonzales (from the group Salvador) and his wife Jaci Velasquez led our worship time. They did a phenomenal job, and we were so blessed and honored to have them with us.
The Spirit of God is at work in Central Minnesota! There is a rising excitement and anticipation for August 11&12. And we are encouraged by the stories of impact we are already hearing. A local Minnesotan said, at the end of one of our meetings together: “Wow! [Before this Festival] we had no idea of the tremendous needs right here in our own city. August can’t come soon enough!”
Prayer Request
Bayron and Gerardo from our Spanish world team will be in Oregon at the end of this month meeting with local Spanish pastors, as another step in building relationships for Celebrate Central Oregon this July 15. Please pray for favor and unity!


We love the Scripture, Psalm 37:23 (NLT): “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.”
What a sensational reminder!
The future is always uncertain for all of us, but when we lean in and trust the Lord to guide us, He promises to direct and illuminate our path! Our team is ready and resolved to follow our Father’s leading, one step at a time, in this exciting year of ministry ahead.
Would you please prayerfully consider partnering with us as we reach Central Oregon, Central Minnesota, and Cusco, Peru?
We are energized, expectant, and equipped to reach many with the Gospel in 2023. And, are convinced that this could be the year we present Jesus Christ to more people than ever before… with YOUR help!

God is mighty enough to light your path this year!

God is ready to move mightily!
Two and a half years, and two postponements later (due to pandemic travel restrictions), eager anticipation has summited for our Santiago, Dominican Republic Festival. It’s finally ‘Go-Time’! In 25 days, our Serve Team heads to Santiago to minister to the Dominican people through the dedication of a freshwater well, school outreaches, and free medical clinics. Then, 30 days from today marks the first night of our two-day festival! God is ready to move mightily amongst the Dominicans, and the hope of our heart is to join HIM in reaching THEM!
Santiago Prayer List:

Please join us in prayer for these specific needs, straight from our VP of International Operations, Bayron Lechuga:

    • Strength and health for the entire MSI Team.
    • For more churches and pastors to join, with a passion to reach their city for Jesus!
    • For the Lord’s favor with the governing authorities; that they will help us with every logistical need in order to pull off this outreach!
    • For good weather on both nights of the Festival.
    • For a historic harvest of souls on December 2&3!
Thank you for partnering with us in prayer! We are excited and expectant for all that is to come!

Encouraged by GRACE!

When we think of mass evangelism—and its enduring presence as one of the most effective ways to spread the Gospel message to lost souls—we think of the acronym G-R-A-C-E, as it reminds us of the following:
God alone changes hearts!  Our job is to simply participate by delivering the truth of the Good News, humbly and lovingly, leaving the rest up to the Holy Spirit.
Re-evangelize every generation.  A new generation is constantly coming of age—each one needs an opportunity to hear, believe, and receive the free gift of salvation. 
Ask Him. We have unlimited, uninterrupted access to the Creator of the universe. 
Crowds draw a crowd.  A key component of our ministry is ‘Festivals.’  Many unbelieving individuals may not be willing to step foot into a church building, but they will come to an event to receive free clothing, food, medical care, or to attend a concert. 
Evangelism is just one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread.” -D.T. Niles.  Your story has purpose and power… share it! 
Everything hinges on the G-R-A-C-E of God!  May you and I be found faithful to ‘practice and proclaim the life-changing message of the Lord Jesus Christ,’ until every individual has had the opportunity to receive the gift of His perfect, matchless GRACE!

Touching Lives… Domestically and Internationally!

We want to share a quick recap from our most recent events where our team witnessed, first-hand, the Lord’s faithful goodness, steadfast presence, and matchless grace, actively at work:
  • We spoke at two of our supporting churches last month—one in Maple Valley, Washington and one in Albany, Oregon—where 7 individuals accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior!
  • We held our first-ever conference for Pastors Kids in Santiago, and 652 people attended! It was the largest of its kind in the history of the country!
  • Our team also recently hosted a Marriage Conference in Santiago, where 450 couples gathered to be encouraged and uplifted!
It is our goal—through the power of the Holy Spirit—to equip and encourage others, and to rescue those who desperately live in hopelessness, shame, and un-forgiveness.  Because of YOU, we are able to touch lives domestically, and internationally, day after day, month after month, year after year!
Not just for what you do, but for who you are… THANK YOU!!
Our prayer of blessing over you today is 1 Peter 5:10: “May the God of all GRACE… restore you, and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”
