Evangelism in the Galilee
Last week we held a large evangelism outreach event where we brought approximately 450 people up to the Galilee, where they heard the gospel’s message of salvation for the first time, and the response was beautiful.
During Altar Call, almost everybody stood up to pray Sinner’s Prayer and receive Yeshua into their hearts. The atmosphere was absolutely filled with God’s presence. Many got healed and delivered, and it was so powerful to see how God was touching people right there.
One of the great privileges of living in the land of Israel, is having the opportunity to take people to biblical places and allow Yeshua to do the “talking” — we just open the bible and share with people what happened in the places where they stand, what Yeshua did, said, taught. It touches their hearts so deeply and powerfully, which is why these tours have become an integral part of our evangelism outreach events. It’s a way to make the bible come alive for people who have never experienced meeting God.
We have now begun our follow-up work with people who attended the event, which includes quite a lot of work, communication, setting up meetings, visits, organizing a discipleship course for the newly saved and “seekers”. People who feel connected, receive encouragement and regular prayer support are more likely to stay the course of their newly found walk with God.
Follow-up work is a very crucial post-evangelism ministry that has to do with discipleship, encouragement, and personal connection that ensures people are cared for and discipled, as well as connecting them to the congregation.
Please keep this incredibly important work in your prayers, we know how important it is to not just sow the seeds, but to water and cultivate them.
Please pray for:
- our team as they are now working full steam on following up, meeting, engaging, and praying with these people.
- resources to be released so we can do the crucial discipleship work that is so needed in order for the fruit to remain.
