Santiago Festival POSTPONED

What Now?
 
You don’t have to spend long in the book of Proverbs to be reminded…we can make plans, but God alone directs our steps (Prov. 16:9, 10:21).
 
Our Santiago, Dominican Republic Festival in December was going to be our biggest, bravest, and most audacious festival we had ever attempted.
 
But after much prayer and counsel, we have decided to postpone our Santiago Festival.
 
We are not setting a date to reschedule at this time due to the amount of uncertainty that remains surrounding the Covid-19 virus. Please join me in praying for the Holy Spirit’s perfect timing.
 
What we are learning in these present circumstances is that the Lord is still very much calling us forward to be a people, and a ministry of not only audacious plans, but audacious faith!!
 
And since we cannot meet in person right now, we are working diligently to enhance our virtual presence and keep sharing the Good News. In February we launched our first Virtual Festival and we currently have some type of virtual outreach each weekday to encourage, pray for and give an opportunity to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior for those tuning in.
 

 
Here are just some of the exciting ways we have been, and will continue to reach people with the Gospel:
  • Weekly virtual ‘FestTALK’ outreaches featuring guest music artists where the Gospel is shared, and an invitation is extended.
  • Private Zoom training webinars every Friday for pastors and their church leaders.
  • Our Spanish World Team is taking technology courses to elevate our effectiveness with virtual outreaches.
  • Global prayer calls.
  • Launched our new Life-Changing Faith podcast series.
  • And more Virtual Festivals are being planned!
 
As of June 3rd, we have reached 1,070,331 people virtually — we bless His name!
 
We look forward to the time when we will be able to reschedule the Santiago Festival and again gather in large groups, but until that time, we are so excited for how the Lord has made it possible for us to continue the work of evangelism — together!
 
Please know the Lord is using this unusual time for His glory through your gracious gifts and faithful prayers.
 
Thank you, my friends, for your steadfast commitment to us and to the Gospel. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, we are strongest, together!
 
Yours to make Him known,
 
Mike Silva
