Quetzaltenango, Guatemala Report

Lives were changed in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, known as “Xela” by the locals, during our “mini” festival December 6-8,2019.
Please join us in praising God for His work in this city and for those who heard and received the Gospel message.
Thank YOU for sending us!
For more information about Quetzaltenango and other festivals, be sure to check out our main blog.


We are going to Quetzaltenango, Guatemala for a 3-day outreach!  One local businessman told our Spanish World Director, Bayron Lechuga, that he wanted to pay for a Festival Por La Vida in his city if we would simply be willing to come… so, you can guess what our answer was!  MSI only needs to cover the travel expenses for Mike and three of our Spanish World team members as well as production and outreach materials for the festival.

Las Palmas Festival, October 12 – An Audio Message From Mike

Please join us in praying for Las Palmas. We covet your
prayers and know The Lord will answer mightily!


  • Las Palmas, on the island of Gran Canaria, has many different religious cultures (Baptists, Gypsies, European foreigners, Muslims, Latinos, etc.). Please pray God would continue to unify everyone, give the necessary grace for their ears to open and listen to what will be happening on October 12th in San Telmo Park (in Las Palmas’ City Center).
  • Our ‘Official Festival Launch’ was extraordinary! 70 people came, representing 17 different local churches. Our festival has peaked the interest of the local pastors and leaders because no one has been to their country to do an event like this. It’s historic for Las Palmas!
  • After the launch, our team reported: “The official presentation of the project was given in a way never seen before by the participants; causing the burning desire to work shoulder-to-shoulder to achieve an unprecedented [spiritual] harvest.” Praise God!
  • Pray for our Pastors meeting, the pastor in charge (who was helping coordinate) had only ever seen 20 pastors get together all at once (and it took much convincing for it to happen). But by faith, and through prayer, the meeting exceeded our goal! We had 105 pastors and leaders in attendance… a record for the island!
  • The president of the Pastor’s Association asked our team, “how did Mike Silva achieve this kind of call? I have not been able to have these results [with pastors and locals] in all the years I’ve been president!” To this, our team responded, “only God’s purpose in a place causes such a move, and now we must all walk together towards that purpose and see it become a reality for the blessing of The Canary Islands.”

Louisville, KY – Pastors Conference

One of the goals of our ministry is to strengthen and encourage the local churches in the cities where we have festivals.  We do this by conducting evangelism, leadership and discipleship training conferences for pastors and church leaders.
In Louisville, over 600 pastors and leaders attended our Pastors Conference!
Thank you for your prayers and support. We are so grateful for your partnership! 

Louisville, KY – Marriage Conference

As part of our Louisville Festival events, we held a Marriage Conference on April 6. 
180 couples attended the conference which encouraged relationships and rallied people to be involved in the festival.
We are praising the Lord for all He is doing to change lives in Louisville and we are so grateful for your prayers and support!

Israel Report

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!
