He Has Risen Indeed! posted by John Sorensen on Apr 20, 2014
Today, we still celebrate with joy the words of Matthew 28:6:
“He is not here, for He has risen.”
Every day, for more than 50 years, Evangelism Explosion has been celebrating and proclaiming this wonderful truth! It is written on our hearts, evident in our ministry and unmistakable in our passion to declare His glorious Resurrection to every person on earth!
And it’s evident in your faithful support of this ministry that helps make our worldwide outreach possible. Millions of people have been transformed by the message of the Gospel this year. Friend, by God’s grace, YOU helped make that happen!
Because of your sacrificial giving, your prayers and your commitment, the message was trumpeted that there is a living, risen Savior—Jesus! And we cannot rest until all have heard.
Consider that, with seven billion people on the planet, half of them have never heard about Jesus Christ. We have a lot of work to do. But there is good news:
Last year, nearly eight million people made professions of faith in Christ through EE-trained witnesses.
God continues to bless this ministry like never before in our 52-year history. By God’s grace, every $2 given to EE means one soul won to Christ.
In 2013, the ministry of EE:
- Conducted thousands of leadership training clinics around the world
- Trained almost one million children to be witnesses for Christ, sharing the Gospel with nearly 10 million of their peers
- Equipped 450,000 adults through Share Your Faith Workshops, Classic EE, Everyday Evangelism and XEE training classes
- Actively engaged 60,000 new churches in training
- Developed specific targeted ministries to train people from various backgrounds and cultures
By God’s grace, we are seeking to mature not only EE staff, but also national EE ministries to see millions more lives impacted with the Gospel. But it takes funding.
To continue this wonderful work of God, a faithful friend of EE has pledged that for every dollar given, it will be generously matched with a Matching Challenge Fund (up to $150,000).
Your gift is doubled allowing it to accomplish twice as much by transforming the lives of twice as many individuals. This Easter, please help us continue this wonderful Gospel work with a generous gift and ensure that countless people around the world will hear the hope of Easter, which is the hope of the Gospel.
Yours in His service,
Dr. John B. Sorensen
