93 Make Decisions for Christ

Well, this is long overdue.  Even then, we rejoice in God's doing.  It is marvelous in our eyes.

"I needed Jesus in my life before it is too late. Thank you for putting on this event (that has helped me find Him)", wrote Leilonie, 19, after committing her life to Jesus Christ at SWIM's Evening of Hope event on March 19th here in the Twin Cities.

"Before coming here tonight life wasn't worth living. Now it is," said Carley, 14, who had also committed her life to Christ for the first time.

These are a few of the many responses we received following the Evening of Hope event that SWIM hosted on March 19th in Brooklyn Center, a Northwest Minneapolis suburb. A few hundred people flocked to the Miracle Empowerment Center not only to sample the live music performance by national bands Superchick, Bread of Stone, and Manic Drive but also for a chance to hear a message of Hope from our team. To the glory of God, 93 people made decisions to follow Christ.

Evening of Hope was held in conjunction with Accelerate Conference aimed at empowering and equipping believers and Christian leaders with tools for ministry.

In the spirit of the Lausanne Movement and conference for world evangelization coming up in Cape Town, South Africa October 2010, SWIM Ministries has been invited to conduct a Festival of Hope in partnership with Malawi Churches in the city of Lilongwe, Malawi later this Fall. Please pray with us as we shift our focus toward this Africa initiative and the Lausanne World Congress. We also have other initiatives around Africa throughout the year. Pray with us for needed resources and for good organization for maximum impact on the ground.

Adiedo Embraces Hope

World Evangelist Sammy Wanyonyi preaching in Adiedo, Kenya Orphaned by HIV/AIDS, she rarely speaks, not even to her visiting school sponsor Pam Craig who traveled as part of our team to Adiedo from Spokane Washington.  But last Saturday afternoon in the closing moments of the evangelistic festival, Everline walked over to Pam and asked if she could be introduced to the preacher (me).   For once, she had a smile on her face.  The eleven year-old had just asked Jesus Christ into her heart as Lord and Savior.   Several hundreds of people respond to the invitation to follow Christ on day two of Adiedo Festival All across the soccer-field were stories like Everline's.  I cannot forget a ten year-old young man named Ochieng.  On Friday night, he waited backstage patiently for me to leave the stage and then boldly walked up to me extending his hand to greet me.  Although his clothes were torn here and there, I could tell that he had worn his Sunday best to the meeting. 

My Body Fails Me - #SHINEGlobalMissionChallenge- #MuhangaRwanda2014

Yes, I want to tell you all about what God is doing here in Muhanga but my body fails me.  I want to tell you how He is moving through our Kinderroots team where already several thousands of children have been ministered to over the last two days on hills, plains and valleys surrounding Muhanga.  Where hundreds have already given their lives to Christ. I want to tell you how God is moving through our Prisoners of Hope outreach program to where three thousand prisoners were reached with the love of Christ earlier this afternoon with hundreds of them giving their lives to Christ. Where we delivered supplies worth several thousands of dollars to the delight of the prison officials following a devastating fire at the facility that gutted much of what they had beyond salvaging. How God worked to open doors so our team could go in and bring the Good News of Christ. How doors to another prison with even more inmates are wide open for the gospel tomorrow morning. I want to tell you of s

Yes I am back to Blogging

I've been gone from blogging for several years now.  I am glad to be back.  I am looking forward to keep this blog alive and well.  So much has happened since my last blog.  In addition to the global work of evangelism, we launched a new work here in the Twin Cities.  The initiative is called Merge. More on why the name Merge later. Yes, we have been busy as ever sharing the Good News with thousands around the world. But more so, in the last two years God has shown us that the Nations are also right here in our own backyard.  Over one million first and second generation from over one hundred nations in the Twin Cities alone. Our cities are more and more global. The people speak multiple religious languages.  They carry multiple national identities.  They fall in different social and cultural groups. With such diversity of peoples at our door step we must ask the question: Is the "Great Commission" still Great? Is Jesus' command given a couple millennia ago to &
