Empowering Local Churches

 
Mobilizing local churches, and empowering local pastors, is a huge part of our mission with each festival.  Now that the festival has finished in Cartagena, the work of discipling new believers continues.
 
We spoke with Pastor Matt Reagan of Southeast Christian Church who shared his perspective on the importance of supporting local church networks in sharing the Gospel.  These are his thoughts on the impact our team had in Colombia.

Thoughts After Night 1

 
THANKS BE TO GOD!  Night 2 of Festival Por La Vida has just finished and it was nothing short of breathtaking.  Thank you all for your faithful prayers and support.
 
Last night we caught up with Mike and Pastor David Lazo on their reactions to Night 1.  Here’s what they had to say about the impact of the Festival.


Festival (Night 1) is only 1 hour away!

We made it. Tonight is the night! Tonight, the Festival begins! The energy of all this built up anticipation is exhilarating. We have prepared extensively for such a time as this- and we are ready! We have seen the evidence of the Holy Spirit’s work all week long. He has been steadfast in prompting hearts to be open and receptive. Romans 1:16 (ESV), declares that the Gospel “…is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes…” Join with us in prayer that today would be the day of salvation for the people of Cartagena- in Jesus name!
