The biggest outreach our ministry has ever done is rapidly approaching. On July 22, we will endeavor to reach an entire nation with the Gospel at the Belize Festival of Hope. We have been working on this project for over two years now and in my letters over the last few months, I have been telling you about many of the details of this historic event.
I just returned from a two-week set-up trip to Belize. On this trip I traveled to cities all over Belize in order to meet with pastors, organize publicity teams, arrange places for all of our team members to stay, and to do television and radio appearances on the biggest media stations in the country. There is tremendous excitement among the local churches and the entire country is starting to talk about what is coming. Based on what people are saying, this is going to be the biggest evangelistic event in the history of Belize.
GOOD NEWS: Our food container with over 270,000 meals for the children of Belize has arrived in country. Plus, our book container with 30,000 Bibles made it through the port and is standing ready.
Can You Help?
One of my friends asked me a couple of days ago, “What can I do to help you reach Belize with the Gospel?” I replied, “All the ground work has been completed, now the best thing you can do to help us is PRAY.”
I know that nothing can succeed without God’s help. At this point, I am asking all of my friends to help me bathe the Belize Festival of Hope in prayer. Can you join us in this effort? You may not be going with us to Belize, but your prayers will help us lead people to Jesus.
