“I’ve been waiting to hear this all my life.” posted by John Sorensen on Apr 20, 2018

At Evangelism Explosion International, we see millions profess faith in Jesus every year. That is something to celebrate! Millions of new believers will spend eternity in Heaven thanks to supporters just like you – people like Tyler. 

After finishing a cigarette outside of a local café, Tyler met Ken and a team who had just attended an Equip America event at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale. That morning, they had learned how to share their faith and were looking for opportunities to share the Gospel, which they had been taught.  

As Ken shared what Jesus did for him on the cross, Tyler kept asking questions. At 23 years old, he had never heard the Good News of Jesus Christ explained so clearly. When Ken asked him if he wanted to accept Jesus as his Savior, Tyler took off his glasses and
wiped his eyes with his tattooed arm. “I’ve been waiting to hear this all my life.” 

Tyler’s life wasn’t the only one changed that day for eternity. As 25 teams from Equip America dispersed along the streets of Fort Lauderdale, 12 people professed faith in Jesus Christ. That’s twelve new lives that will spend eternity in Heaven! 

And we hope to hold Equip America events, just like this one, all across the United States. Our nation needs the Gospel now more than ever before. But so often, Christians say that they simple don’t know how to share it.

That’s why Evangelism Explosion International exists – to equip believers to share their faith and lead others to Christ. Last year, 6,766 new churches around the world joined us in helping their congregations learn how to present the Gospel and share Christ with their friends, family, and the people they meet. The amazing thing is, these people don’t just learn to share their faith for one day. They learn how to do it every day, for the rest of their lives. That’s what makes a difference in our nation and in our world. 

We have an amazing opportunity to make that happen. 

We have received an incredible $250,000 Matching Challenge from a generous donor. Right now, every dollar you give to the Great Commission Fund for the ongoing ministry of Evangelism Explosion International will be automatically matched, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000. That means, your generosity will have double the impact. Twice as many lives will be changed for eternity.  

But this offer won’t last long. To make your gifts go twice as far, we must receive your contribution by midnight on June 30. 

Will you help us reach the millions of people around the world who have been waiting to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ? 

Your generosity will impact the lives of so many people who need to know the Good News that God still transforms lives. 

Last year, 11 million people professed faith in Jesus Christ through the work of EE. Millions of lives have been changed for eternity! God’s story is not yet finished. We have the opportunity to impact millions more in 2018. 

Please make your most generous gift today. 

Every gift to the Great Commission Fund is doubled, up to $250,000, between now and June 30. Don’t let this opportunity to make a difference pass. Every dollar counts.

Thank you for partnering with us to change the lives of so many people through the ministry of Evangelism Explosion International. I am deeply grateful for your prayers and financial support as we celebrate the 11 million lives changed last year and move forward together in 2018 to proclaim the transforming power of Jesus Christ!

Together in His service, 

 

 

 

 

 

Rev. John B. Sorenson, D.D.

President/CEO

PS: Don’t forget to take advantage of this $250,000 Matching Challenge before it expires on June 30. Every gift is DOUBLED and every dollar goes TWICE as far to equip believers around the world to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
