A few days ago, we celebrated Easter! We rejoiced that our Savior loved us so much that He gave His life for our sins and reconciled us with our Heavenly Father. Christ then rose from the grave and conquered sin and death so that we can have eternal life! Glory to God!
This message…the greatest story the world will ever know…must be told to everyone, everywhere! The love of God is so powerful that it requires our utmost devotion to worship Him constantly and to share His love so that none will perish but that all will have everlasting life. The love of Christ compels us to go into ALL the world and preach the Gospel.
I am thrilled that the Lord allowed us to complete the dream to offer www.JourneyAnswers.com in the Top Ten Languages of the Internet. These languages are English, Mandarin, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Japanese, Indonesian, Portuguese, German, and French. Also, we offer www.WhoJesusIs.com in nine of these languages and will offer all ten, Lord willing, by the end of the Summer.
Presently, we are on target to make approximately 6 million Gospel presentations in 2017. We praise the Lord for this opportunity and for those, like you, who are making this possible because of their faithful prayer and financial support! But, by adding evangelism sites we have created a need for funding the new languages. We can spread the current funds to cover all the sites but this will not help us to reach more people; just people of a variety of languages. So, what we need is more funding!
We need funds, above what we have now, for Journey Answers in Arabic, Portuguese, Japanese, and German. We need funds for Who Jesus Is in Mandarin, Arabic, Portuguese, Japanese, Indonesian, French, and German.
The question is, “How much money do you need?” At the moment, we know that for every $1 given to us for evangelism, we can make 15 Gospel presentations. Based on that formula, in order to reach 10 million people in one year, we will need $91 a day for each of the twenty evangelism sites (ten Journey Answers and ten Who Jesus Is).
An extra gift of:
- $1,000 will reach 15,000 people with the Gospel.
- $5,000 will reach 75,000 people.
- $10,000 will reach 150,000 individuals.
Let’s use Journey Answers in Portuguese as an example. If we had the funds to promote www.RespostasDaVida.com today, we will begin to get results immediately, we would start responding to people tomorrow, and we would see some of them in church on Sunday.
Will you pray with me that the Lord will open doors of opportunity for funding? I know that every ministry asks this but this is our situation. This Gospel MUST first be preached to all nations (Mark 13:10). We have the message! We have the motivation. We have the means. May the Lord help us to maximize this opportunity while there is light of day!
