“Let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.” 1 Thess. 5:8
Dear Praying Friends,
Our Almighty God is our Help in ages past, and our Hope for years to come! He is the ultimate Ruler and Authority of the world. We come before Him in prayer for our government, and our nation. As our country just had a major election and a change in national power, we pray for all those in authority. We ask for prayers for Luis, Andrew, Kevin and our Palau ministry team. Give them all, and us, wisdom and understanding, with love for righteousness and peace, full of grace and favor.
What is Hope? The blossom of happiness. What is Eternity? The lifetime of God. What is gratitude? The memory of the heart. (Author unknown) Praising God with you in gratitude as we celebrate our country on Thanksgiving Day! We thank God for Luis, Andrew and the LPA team giving sacrificially as they travel to South America over our Thanksgiving holiday to share the hope of salvation through Jesus Christ in seeking and saving the lost.
Athena OR | In mid-October, Luis had an amazing festival in rural Athena, OR. It was kicked off by a pastor’s conference where Luis encouraged 102 local pastors and their spouses, and a festival where 600 people showed up full of energy! They were led into the presence of God in a time of celebration and worship with Luis preaching the Good News like he was preaching at Central Park, with passion and expectancy. Throughout the day more than 40 people responded to the gospel.
Rhode Island and New York City l In mid-October, Luis preached to more than 1000 pastors and lay leaders from across the state of Rhode Island, challenging them to "dream great dreams" for the sake of the Gospel! Later in the week he gave the closing message at “Movement Day” in NYC to 1000’s of christian leaders from around the nation and our world!
Fresno CA l Youth Rally October 26th! The Movement is something a few youth pastors in Fresno began a few years ago as an evangelistic tool. The first year they had about 400. Last year they had 600. This year they asked if Fresno City Fest could partner with them and help amp up the proclamation and reach more kids. The local youth pastors felt like maybe 1000-1500 could attend. Everyone was blown away when 3,600+ high school aged kids showed up! There were kids EVERYWHERE! Almost 1,000 had to be sent to an overflow. When Andrew gave the invitation we had to steer them outside because there was literally no room for people to come forward. It was a beautiful sight as circles of students gathered to be counseled and prayed with.
