The Good News in Zambia posted by John Sorensen on Nov 03, 2016
Let me tell you how – and share an amazing opportunity to do even more to equip men and women, young and old, to share the Gospel – and train others to do the same.
A few weeks ago, we conducted a Leadership Training Clinic in Livingstone, Zambia. Now, we call it a clinic, and not a seminar, because we don’t merely sit in a room and talk about witnessing. After learning how to share our faith, we go out and do it! And in the process, lives are changed for eternity.
On the first day, we shared the Gospel with 69 people and 45 of them made a profession of faith for the very first time!
The second day, we made glasses for those in need – and shared the Gospel – during an EE Glasses For Missions outreach. People poured in from the neighborhoods around the church and we presented the Gospel to 58 people, with 36 of them making a profession of faith.
The next day God led us to Juliette. She is 71 years young and I asked her if I could share some good news with her. Juliette said, “How can I know if its good news unless you share it with me?” So, we did.
I’ll never forget this elderly, blind woman, with tears running down her cheeks, accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior of her life. I asked her at the end, “Well, was it good news?” After a pause, she whispered, “Now I know God loves me, because He sent you all to share this wonderful news with me.”
That day we shared with 107 people and 77 gave their hearts to Christ.
But wait, there’s more. One of our trainees was the Bishop of the Church of God in Zambia. On the final day of On-the-Job Training (OJT), he had the privilege to share with and lead 17 people to Jesus! I don’t think Bishop Eric was walking on the ground as he came back to the report session!
Afterwards, he told me that every one of the more than 600 churches in his denomination would be starting EE in the coming days! Praise the Lord!
And it’s your faithful prayers and financial support that help make this happen — all to the glory of God!
What’s truly amazing is that we won’t do just one clinic this year. But, by God’s grace, we will conduct over 2,400 clinics just like this worldwide! In these clinics we’ll train more than 1.2 million people to be witnesses for Jesus.
But we can’t do any of this without you! It takes resources that we don’t currently have. But I know that you love this ministry and you care for lost and dying people who are without hope unless we tell them of a Savior who loves them.
And you have the amazing opportunity to see your gift doubled – and do twice as much for God’s kingdom. A close friend of the ministry has offered a $250,000 Matching Grant! Every dollar given up to $250,000 will be doubled, allowing us to do all that God has placed before us in these days.
Will you please prayerfully consider what God is calling you to do so that we can take full advantage of this wonderful challenge?
Last year, once again, we spent $1.21 for every person we saw come to faith in Jesus! This isn’t to put a “cost” on a soul, but only to remind you what a truly cost effective investment EE is.
The fields are ripe for harvest and God has given you and me an astonishingly effective tool to reach lost men and women through EE – and to be a part of changing lives for eternity.
Thank you for helping at this critical time.
Together, in His service,
Evangelism Explosion International
