More than 69,000 Accept Jesus in My Hope Caribbean Projects

By   •   July 13, 2010

The gatherings were a part of the My Hope World Evangelism through Television project and were the largest outreaches in the history of both the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

“These faithful Christians took a bold step in inviting their friends and neighbors to their homes, and God truly worked through their efforts and prayers,” said Bill Conard, vice president of international ministries for BGEA.

“Projects like this show that evangelism is not only for pastors, but for anyone who longs for those around them to experience the hope and love found only in Jesus Christ.”

After months of preparation, the programs culminated in a combined total of more than 59,000 home events in March and April, which included a TV program featuring a sermon from Billy or Franklin Graham and a personal testimony from the host.

In the Dominican Republic, 55,391 people made commitments to Christ, with 13,797 doing so in Puerto Rico. Altogether more than 5,500 churches from across the evangelical spectrum were involved in the projects.

“Collecting results from all churches often takes weeks, and we just recently received the final numbers from Puerto Rico,” said Conard. “During that time follow-up efforts were made to help new believers become involved in a local church body and thereby grow in their faith.”

“We’ve been so encouraged by the stories we’ve heard,” he continued. “One small, 70-member church in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, held 11 home meetings as part of My Hope. Of the 71 who attended the gatherings, 62 made commitments to Jesus Christ – most of them first-time decisions.”

    Dear Brother/Sister, I am Somie Saleem, from Pakistan. Urdu and Punjabi are the biggest languages of this country. I visited your website and impressed by your work. I have one suggestion regarding booklets, sermon, tracks, and Bible studies and recording, it would be good, if these will be available in native languages in Urdu and Punjabi. Reaching out to the people in their own languages is very helpful, affective and fruitful. If your ministry is interested and willing to reach unreached and untold in Pakistan with the materials in native languages, I can arrange to translation for messages, bible studies, biblical tracks, books and also Urdu page on your ministry website. Our all services will be provided with reasonable rates and whatever we get we use it to spread the word of God.Would please to hear from you.

    Thousands are dying everyday without Christ. Truly the challenge is greater in the field than the comfort zone in Church building.
