How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy GOD reigneth!– Isaiah 52:7 (KJV)
The whole months of April and May, summer solstice here in the Philippines, our church (New Life in Jesus Christ Baptist Church) hosted a series of crusade in different local units in our city.
We were a bunch of flaming hearts from different age groups who decided to fill our summer months with evangelistic activities.
The theme, was Jesus’ Ambassadors, founded on the Bible verse II Corinthians 5:20. Purpose was to have a movie entitled Jesus Film taken from the gospel of Luke. One thing about the movie was that it was in our dialect! Bisaya. So, it was readily accepted and easily understood by many, especially the kids.
Looking at these photos, it makes me glad every time. I can feel the Lord doing great and mighty things through His people and I am so honored to be a part of it.
When the movie reaches the part where Christ was crucified on the cross, Yogs would stop and pause the movie and Pastor Maratas would come in and preach powerfully the Lord’s message of Salvation!
This is basically my second favorite part, the first, I’ll tell you later. While Pastor was preaching, the rest of us would pray hard with our eyes wide open to be able to see what we could and should pray for.
Then my most favorite part is when feet start to move across the room and forward to the altar. Pastor’s famous line was, “Come to Jesus!” And he’d repeat that for several times until every body moves and would fill the stage.
We’ve had several crusades for the whole summer but every altar call, I’d always have goosebumps all over. It’s so amazing and encouraging to see people crying and coming fast forward to receive our Lord Jesus Christ as savior and Lord.
Every experience is different and has a story to tell. I am just so thankful for that summer experience, no regrets at all. Just gratefulness.
Tell me more about how the Lord has worked/been working in you. 🙂
