Over 129,000 salvations in 3 weeks in Nakuru!
I am excited to share with you that our pre-campaign team of evangelists have seen over 129,000 salvations in just three weeks of ministering in the schools throughout Nakuru, Kenya! Nearly half of the total decisions were received this past week alone while visiting 150 schools and seeing over 60,000 young people give their lives to Jesus.
While we rejoice and stand in awe of what God has done thus far, our team isn’t slowing down at all. Instead, with over 3 weeks left of outreach before the main campaign next month, we are only increasing our efforts to maximize on this window of opportunity. The young people of Nakuru are being impacted by the Gospel and seeds are being sown that will bring salvation to entire families and villages, producing lasting fruit in Kenya.
Thank you for your partnership and for standing with us to make this all a reality. Please continue to pray for our pre-campaign team as we continue to minister – and for the main campaign which takes place from August 8 – 11 in Nakuru, Kenya.
Yours in the Gospel,
Over 30,000 salvations in first week of pre-campaign outreach
Dear Missions Partners,
I want to share some exciting news with you! As part of our ‘Decade of Double Harvest’ initiative, we have been hard at work increasing our efforts to see 150 million souls saved within the next decade. In fact, just last year when I announced the use of our Gospel Trucks for pre-campaign village outreach, I stated that ‘I believe the days are soon coming where we will see as many or more people saved BEFORE the campaign than during it’… and I believe those days have come!
Eventually, we will have Gospel Trucks in East Africa, just as we do in West Africa. But we’re not waiting around for that to happen. In preparation for our next African Gospel Campaign on August 8-11 in Nakuru, Kenya, we already have a team of evangelists on the ground paving the way for Kenya to be shaken by the Gospel! This team of just four evangelists have each beenpersonally trained by myself and played a role in our pre-campaign outreaches in the past. Now, to impact Kenya’s high population of young people, we have set our sights on ministering in the schools, meeting them where they congregate together each day.
This past week our pre-campaign outreach team has preached the gospel in 51 schools (mostly public) and has seen over 33,000 decisions to follow Jesus! I believe what is happening right now is unprecedented and will lead to the salvation of entire families… and this is just the beginning!
Thank you for partnering with us both prayerfully and financially to reach these precious young people of Kenya. Please continue to pray as there is still another month left of outreach leading up to the main campaign event in August. The best is yet to come, In Jesus’ name!
Yours in the Gospel,
Nakuru, Kenya 08 – 11 August 2019
