Hello Again, Prayers for New Jersey and the whole Palau Team!
There are less than 100 days to go until the weekend of July 11th and CENTRAL PARK. Amazing, not only that it is so close, but also that so much is happening with the Palau Team in NY and the Tri-State area. This weekend alone, Luis Palau spoke at West Point Academy and also at the Christian Cultural Center (CCC) with Dr A.R. Bernard, the largest church in the NY area. Praise God with us for both of these events and His anointing on Luis as he brought the truth of the Gospel to over 500 West Point cadets and thousands of NY citizens. The Holy Spirit filled these places of worship and drew people to Himself!
This week Andrew Palau hosts a week of prison outreaches. The main focus is Riker’s Island which includes several different facilities and about 17,000 inmates. Please pray for God’s divine protection on Andrew and that the passion he feels for God’s redeeming love will be well communicated to these prisoners. We pray for hundreds of lives to be transformed, that "they will know the Truth and the Truth will set them free”.
Wendy Palau was in NY this past week making plans for a major women’s event in Manhattan on May 1st. Please pray for all the logistics, that women will get excited and invite friends to hear about life in Jesus. Wendy has asked that we pray for her presentation that it is powerful, Spirit-led, and that it touches hearts.
The publicity campaign has had a good start and soon the ads will be on bus exteriors and signs. Also a package has been secured with NBC to have ads for the month of June. Specifically now there will be spots on Jimmy Fallon and Ellen - with more to come. How exciting!! Also the team is working with Telemondo Media, NY Times and Fox News Radio for promotion. Advertising is key in getting people aware, repeatedly, of the events. Please pray that God empowers this advertising process; that it is widespread and of excellence and that people will be drawn to attend the main events.
Friday evening, 4/24, Andrew will be holding a huge Youth Night on Staten Island. Andrew’s story is so appealing to youth, let’s pray for Andrew as he finishes his week of speaking at the prisons and then speaks to youth. Pray that the Father strengthens and empowers Andrew, that he remains healthy and encouraged as he sees God’s transforming work in all of these settings.
Specifically for New Jersey, there are many outreach events being planned. Locations so far are Bergen, Clinton, Ocean Grove and Paterson. As the details become more secure I’ll email you again so we can support all of these in prayer. On June 27th there will be a major outreach in Elizabeth, NJ. Twenty-two pastors are involved with this event and the setting will be the steps of City Hall plus the park across the street. Even now there are plans to teach 10,000 counselors to mingle in the crowds and be ready to lead people to personal faith in Jesus. On June 15th seven churches will be starting the counselor training. Lord, we ask you to raise up these 10,000 people with a heart of passion to be equipped to lead step by step into a relationship with You. Thank you LORD!!
What God is doing in the New York area is amazing. There is so much to follow. The NWPT monthly newsletter includes a daily calendar of events and prayer points. It’s very profitable to print it out so you are daily reminded of how to pray for God’s amazing work in the Tri-State area.
Blessings and gratitude to all of you as you faithfully pray for the Palau events in New Jersey and the New York area. We are privileged to be part of God’s extravagant work. I’ll be sending more frequent emails as the Festival gets closer and outreaches more frequent.
