The Lord allowed us to present the Gospel to 50 million individuals in 242 countries and territories via the Internet! “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work with us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen” (Ephesians 3:20-21). Glory to God!
Thank you so much for partnering with us to reach this milestone! You are making a difference! You inspire us to do even greater things for God’s glory. Our big and audacious goal is to reach the next 50 million people in the next six years.
Next week, I will send what we used to call a “press release” to inform our friends of our upcoming “50 for 50” celebration. Here is what I plan on sending:
Network211 commemorated presenting the Gospel to 50 million individuals via the Internet with a celebration called, “50 for 50” at the Assemblies of God World Missions chapel on September 22, 2022. It was on August 23, 2022, that Network211 reached this historic milestone that marked the halfway point of completing Project 100Million.
Network211 praised the Lord for reaching 50 million people in fourteen years. Then they presented the new challenge of reaching the remaining 50 million people in the next six years; the 20th anniversary of the first launch in 2008.
The 50 million visits came from people reaching out online one by one and from 242 countries and territories. Almost 2.5 million of them then made an evangelism response and over 425,000 wrote Network211 to begin a discipleship connection. Network211 journeys with people by providing them with further content at www.JourneyOnline.org and helps them go from “searches to churches!” by connecting them with a local church in their nations, whenever possible.
The significance of this milestone is much more than statistics. It represents a move of God to build His Church. Rick DuBose, the Assistant General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God and longtime Network211 Board member said, “In the last days, the Lord will pour out His Spirit one more time throughout the world. Network211 is preparing now for future harvest by planting the seeds of the Gospel into the hearts of people around the world. Not all of the seed planted today will bring immediate harvest but the harvest will come.”
Dr. Mark Flattery, President of Network211 agrees, “We must continue to meet people at their point of need, as they are searching for answers and relationships so that we can plant the Good News into their hearts and introduce them to Jesus. Then we can utilize our amazing Assemblies of God network worldwide and connect people to Spirit-filled believers and Pentecostal local churches.”
Network211 was a result of a vision the Lord gave to Dr. George M. Flattery to use the Internet as a tool of the Gospel and present the Good News to ten million people. Launched in October 2008, Network211 rejoiced as the Lord smiled upon them and fulfilled this vision on October 2013. Project 10Million was expanded to become Project 100Million.
Dr. Flattery’s motivation from the moment this vision was instilled in his heart was to bring people to Jesus. He said, “I will always say that the harvest is the reward. Our reward is when you see people who come to Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and you know that the Spirit of God has descended upon them. Even though your contact has been small, you can see the radical change in their lives and see them come to know Jesus as their personal Savior. That is what this is all about. It is about the harvest.”
We pray that as the Lord enables us, we will see the completion of Project 100Million by the end of 2028. Thank you for taking this journey with us!
Dr. Mark Flattery
