Colombia Campaign Join the Mission - Oct 2022 🔥🔥


Have you ever considered going on a Mission trip or being part of an Evangelistic Campaign to bring the love of Jesus to a Nation? This could be your chance!!


We are super excited to announce that we are mobilising the Oct 2022 Evangelistic Campaign and joining forces with Life Nations to bring the gospel of Jesus to the nation of Colombia - That's 3 cities, 8 locations, 12 evangelistic meetings, 3 pastor conferences!! And... we're taking a Mission Team to help in this harvest.

Here's a glimpse from the 2021 Evangelistic mission in Colombia:


Vision for Colombia


Together with Life Nations, we are believing and working to see 500,000 people to come to Christ in Colombia during the next 10 years.


This is a massive vision and can only be achieved through mass evangelistic campaigns, by partnering with local churches and ministries to help in this harvest for follow-up and discipleship of new believers, and by training and releasing more evangelists to labour together with us in this vision.


How does it work? The churches in Colombia have the boats, we bring our nets and fishing skills, and we use their boats to bring the fish to the beaches. But the fish belong to the local churches, for people to come into fibrant Spirit-filled churches who have laboured in this harvest. This work has already begun...

In 2021 we preached the gospel to over 6,000 people in Colombia, many were healed and we saw 889 decisions recorded for people wanting to follow Jesus in the cities of Santa Marta, Cincelejo and Corozal.

The success of our 2021 Evangelistic Campaign in Colombia means that we can now build on our experience, networks and partnerships, and bring more labourers to help in this harvest. It's like when Jesus told the disciples to cast their nets on the other side of the boat and having done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. "So they signalled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink" (Luke 5:6-7). Hallelujah!! What a fishing trip that must have been. Nothing wrong with the amount of fish there, they just didn't have enough nets and boats to bring in the whole catch.



"The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest"

Mathew 9:35-38



We need more labourers to help in this harvest - there are so many fish that our nets are beginning to break, and we are signalling for partners to come and help in this catch. We labour to see people saved, healed and delivered in the Nations to which God has sent us. And we are calling for our partners, and those who want to partner with us to come and help share the love of Jesus, the message of the cross and salvation, with the people of Colombia.


Join IN THIS HARVEST


So how can you join or partner in this harvest?

Whilst we need $15,000 (£12,000) to cover campaign expenditure for venue, permits, security, equipment hire (video, sound & power), local advertising etc, we also really need Spirit-filled people who love Jesus and have a heart for the lost. People who are willing to labour alongside us, and partner to share in this vision and harvest.

The Colombia Campaign

The local language is Spanish, so we use translators and interpreters to help communicate and minister during the campaign. The crusade grounds are prepared with the help of our local partners and churches in the cities of Colombia, where we hire venues, erect platforms, and set up chairs, sound and lighting equipment for the crowds to see and hear our Evangelists and worship teams. We also share where possible the event on social media platforms with our partners, supporters and for others to come to faith.


We have to raise $15,000 (roughly £12,000) to bring this campaign to the cities in Colombia. Will you consider partnering with us?

As a Christian charity, we rely on donations to carry out the mission of proclaiming the Gospel to those who have yet to experience the goodness of God and to encourage and help mobilise the body of Christ. Behind the scene, a sea of volunteers are engaged in the campaigns to help provide logistics, technology support, videography, administration etc. back home and at all the different locations. At the same time Prayer, Intercession and Ministry teams engaged real-time on Zoom and WhatsApp before, during and after the campaigns. It's a mammoth operation and truly amazing to see behind the scenes what it takes to make all this happen.


Please consider partnering with us to help share the message of life to those without hope. If this is something you would like to support or get involved in, you can apply here. We value your prayers, we have online intercessions teams and various volunteering opportunities (social media, videography & editing, administration, fundraising & grants etc).


You can make a donation here and help support the charities activities, objectives or specific campaigns.



Post Campaign Follow-up and Discipleship


During the campaign, personal details are recorded for new believers who have made a decision to follow Jesus. Local teams and churches provide follow-up to bring people into fellowships and for discipleship. We also distribute bibles afterwards to those who have accepted Jesus during a meeting, to help them on thier journey in Christ.


We would love to help more to follow up and disciple new believers by providing Christian materials, more bibles and develop or share technology that people can access in these and more remote areas. This is part of our longer term strategy and we have already begun to look at new technology and partnerships that may help facilitate this.
