Louisville, Kentucky – May 18th, 2019

Did you know one of the fastest growing immigrant groups in America is found in Louisville, Kentucky? Louisville is considered a ‘global city’; now home to a community of approximately 9,000 Cubans and counting. Most of Kentucky’s Cuban population have come seeking refuge from hardships in their native country.
For the first time in the history of MSI, we’ll be doing Festival Por La Vida (‘Festival For Life’) on U.S. soil this May 18, 2019!
This will be a small-scale, big-impact outreach highly focused on local church partnerships, counselor training, and affinity events including pastor/leader conferences and a marriage conference. There will also be a ‘FestiKids’ children’s outreach, action sports, and music from some of the top Christian Spanish artists in the world!
Most Cuban families have come to America for a better life; but many are still searching for purpose and hope. That is why this outreach is of utmost importance. Our prayer is that our festival will have a tremendous impact on this community. And I believe, by faith, we will see a mighty harvest of souls on May 18th!
We will host multiple festival pre-launch events including training and equipping leaders and counselors with materials they need to effectively respond to decision-makers after the Gospel message is given on the festival night.
Please pray Ezekiel 36:26 with us for the Cubans in Louisville – that the Lord would give a new heart and spirit to those who respond to Him! That He would remove stony, stubborn hearts and replace them with tender, responsive hearts instead!
May He beckon MANY to Himself on May 18th!

Well of Life and Festival for Life

La Canada de Camboya was a community without safe drinking water for its estimated 1,100+ people.  Through the Festival and generous supporters like YOU, we were able to provide drinkable water via a new water system and additional holding tanks.
From this came the Government’s commitment to further care for the families living in La Canada by paving roads, improving electricity and more. 
During the well dedication celebration, when the Gospel was given, dozens more responded.  What a great start to the day!

The Saturday Festival kicked off with FestiKids full of fun – with inflatables, activities, music and a family tailored Gospel presentation.  The Festival was rocking by the 6 pm start time with popular local artists building up to fan favorite performers Tercer Cielo and Redimi2.  Mike’s message of hope and salvation visibly resonated with many.  His practical visuals powerfully illustrated the Gospel in new ways, drawing many to the Lord. Praise God!

Testimony and Expectation

Barahona Pastors Conference

Last night was our “Fruit That Remains” Pastors Conference and hundreds of leaders gathered to pray, learn and worship together.  Mike Silva and Pastor Jaime Loya of Cross Church in San Benito, Texas, had a powerful word of encouragement and inspiration for the Pastors and Leaders of this City.  The growing hope and belief that their city will be spiritually revived and transformed because of what God is doing this week was palpable in that place.  It was an incredible time of unity for the church in Barahona as well!  What an honor it is to be a part of this monumental time.
Thank you so much to the supporters and prayer warriors who are making this trip possible.  It couldn’t be happening without you and we are so grateful for what has taken place already and what is yet to come in our last few days here!

Curiosity Is Building Over The Good News That is Coming!

Schedules are full, our teams’ impact is multiplying, and the anticipation for the Festival is exponentially increasing as Mike is sharing on TV and radio broadcasts, meeting with government officials and local military and police, and making it known to ALL that we have some GOOD NEWS to share VERY SOON!  Our serve teams are joyfully and diligently sharing their personal testimonies and the loving Gospel message with children at schools and orphanages throughout the city.  Teams have also hit the city’s streets – inviting everyone they encounter to the Festival! Numbers are still coming in, but the teams have already seen numerous people receive Christ!  We are so encouraged!

Barahona: Day 1

Last night, many National and City Authorities assembled to meet with Mike Silva and our Festival Directors- the Governor, Mayor’s Office, Police General, City Deputy, Directors of Public Works and Water Utilities, and several Heads of the Pastors’ Associations were present- many making the 4 hour drive from Santo Domingo to Barahona.  It was an important opportunity for us to personally thank them for their support and permissions that are necessary to make a city-wide Festival possible.  And most impressively, they represent both right and left political parties and all embraced Festival Por La Vida and worked together in an effort to bring the festival to the city of Barahona.  We give God the glory!
Today, our Serve Team hit the ground running and went to two different ministry sites sharing the Gospel and demonstrating God’s love in both word and deed.  The students were so responsive and receptive to the Good News message of Jesus.  Dozens said “Yes” to Him today!
For the first time, we have an international group of 29 individuals here with us this week for the sole purpose of 24/7 prayer for our Outreach.  While the stage set-up began this afternoon, our Prayer Team assembled at the Festival grounds to ask God for a mighty work to be done in the City.
