Urgent Gospel Opportunity

DEAR FRIEND,

THIS LETTER WILL BE BRIEF AND TO THE POINT. LAST MONTH I SHARED ABOUT THE EIGHT GOSPEL FESTIVALS PLANNED FOR 2008. THEN SOMETHING HAPPENED…LET ME EXPLAIN!

EARLIER THIS YEAR OUR TV SCREENS WERE FILLED WITH SHOCKING SCENES, 1200 DEAD AND 300,000 HOMELESS IN KENYA. THE EPICENTER OF DEATH AND ATROCITIES WAS THE CITY OF ELDORET. ONE OF THE MOST GRUESOME STORIES WAS HOW 50 PEOPLE HID THEMSELVES IN A CHURCH, ONLY FOR THE CHURCH BUILDING TO BE TORCHED AND THOSE WHO TRIED TO FLEE CUT DOWN WITH MACHETES.

I HEARD THE LORD SPEAK IN MY SPIRIT, “GO TO ELDORET AND ANNOUNCE MY GOSPEL OF GRACE. THE NATION OF KENYA WILL BE WIDE OPEN”.

NOW, FRIEND, MY THINKING WAS THAT WE SHOULD WAIT ONE YEAR AFTER THE ATROCITIES, BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT WOULD NOT GIVE US A PERMIT TO CONDUCT A HUGE GOSPEL CAMPAIGN.

TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT, JUST A FEW DAYS AGO A ROOM FULL OF POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS LEADERS, MANY WITH TEARS OF GRATITUDE STREAMING DOWN THEIR FACES, PLEADED WITH OUR CRUSADE DIRECTOR, REV. PAUL COWELL, “PLEASE ASK PETER YOUNGREN TO COME NOW. WE NEED THIS MESSAGE OF GOD’S GRACE IMMEDIATELY.”

THE RESULT IS THE “GOSPEL FOR KENYA NOW!” PROJECT. THE PRESIDENT, VICE-PRESIDENT AND THE NATIONAL MEDIA IN KENYA IS FOLLOWING THIS CLOSELY. WE WILL BRING THE MESSAGE OF JESUS ON TV, RADIO AND IN THE NEWSPAPERS TO THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. HEALING, HOPE AND THE REALITY OF JESUS WILL TOUCH THIS DEVASTATED AREA.

PREPARATIONS ARE IN FULL SWING FOR A HARVEST OF 200,000 NEW BELIEVERS, STADIUM RENTALS, SOUND SYSTEM AND A LARGE PASTORS SEMINAR.

SOMETHING HAS GONE WRONG. THE ATROCITIES WE WITNESSED ON OUR TV SCREENS WERE CHRISTIANS KILLING CHRISTIANS. I AM DEEPLY CONCERNED HOW VIOLENCE HAS CREPT IN. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH JESUS’ MESSAGE OF LOVE AND GRACE.

I ASK FOR YOUR SPECIAL HELP AT THIS URGENT TIME. WHEN I THOUGHT OF THIS IMMEDIATE AND CRITICAL NEED, A SCRIPTURE LEAPT IN MY SPIRIT. WE READ IN PROVERBS, “THE RIGHTEOUS GIVES AND DOES NOT SPARE.” (PROV. 21:26B)

GOD HAS GIVEN US THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF JESUS CHRIST. HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS ALSO MAKES US GENEROUS. NOTICE THE CHARACTERISTIC OF A RIGHTEOUS PERSON: ONE WHO “GIVES AND DOES NOT SPARE”. THE SEQUENCE IS CLEAR.

JESUS, THE RIGHTEOUS ONE, GAVE HIMSELF AND DID NOT SPARE > JESUS CHRIST LIVES IN US > WE BECOME GENEROUS; WE GIVE AND DO NOT SPARE!

THANK YOU FOR TAKING THIS CHALLENGE TO HEART. I BELIEVE SOME WILL GIVE $300, $500 OR EVEN $1000. OTHERS CAN GIVE $35, $50 OR $100. ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU PARTICIPATE.

I WILL LOOK FOR YOUR RESPONSE. PLEASE DON’T DELAY! DO WHAT YOUR HEART TELLS YOU TODAY. THANK YOU!

YOUR FRIEND,

PETER YOUNGREN
