Salvation Prayer in Timika

Look at this video, complimentary from a person who attended the meetings in Timika last week. Unfortunately, the pictures that the World Impact Ministries staff took were stolen. We are trying to find anything we can that documents what happened. I think that this video will show you that God did something really special in this eastern Indonesian city. Thanks for your support!

We received a beautiful reception at the airport. The vice-regent favored Peter with this traditional headdress, and a group of singers and dancers sang beautiful songs about the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Gospel Revolution Seminar for pastors and leaders continues to have a great impact.

Thousands are impacted by the Gospel. Countless were healed including the woman you see with the wheelchair. She was brought to the festival unable to walk and now she is pushing the young man in her chair, testifying how Jesus healed her!

Ziway Ethiopia, Friendship Festival

Ziway Ethiopia, Friendship Festival

Our first step in reaching a city. We can communicate with leaders of all religions, police and the mayor to create goodwill for the gospel.

Our Gospel Revolution Seminar for pastors is now in full swing in Ziway, with 650 delegates. We are helping them move from Sinai to Golgotha.

From the stadium in Jimma we have now moved to Ziway, 14 hours away into another stadium and tonight our gospel presentation began. This city is a mixture of Islam, Orthodox and Protestant. The light of the gospel is much needed.

Our singer leads the crowd in rejoicing at the end of the service.

There are two kinds of blindness, physical and spiritual. On the second night in the stadium in Ziway both kinds of darkness were dispelled. Here are some of the photos.

My job is to present the good news of Jesus Christ. His job is to confirm His gospel, and He never fails.

In the 4th rally in the stadium in Ziway, I turned the preaching over to my associate, Dean Morris. This is a part of our vision, and I hope that we will have up to 100 Apostolic evangelists, who are able to do what God has helped me to do in so many parts of the world. To find out more about the training for this, email ggi@peteryoungren.org. What a great breakthrough this service was.

One more night in the stadium. The rejoicing continued long into the night. Take a look at these photos.

Friendship Festival with Peter Youngren

60 CHURCHES BURNED – NOW TIME FOR GOSPEL FESTIVALS

Nathan Thurber recently travelled to Jimma and Ziway, Ethiopia to prepare for Friendship Festivals to be conducted by Pastor Peter Youngren. He was received by religious and political leaders, including several Muslim leaders of those cities.

Jimma has a large Muslim population and has a history riddled with conflict. In 2006 and again in 2011, churches were burned with many converting to Islam. Since these traumatic events, there has been a sense of fear among Christians, and they are eager for Peter Youngren to come. Ziway, in central Ethiopia is predominantly orthodox, with a fast growing Muslim population.

“I was received warmly by local church leaders and have made substantial progress towards planning the upcoming festivals. A point for prayer is for the government to grant permission for the stadium as the strong Muslim presence has prevented Christians from holding large scale events for many years”, said Pastor Nathan.

Pastor Peter commented, “These campaigns happen because the partners care and give. We are co-workers with the Lord”.

After 30 hours of travel, we were met at Jimma Airport. A little impromptu meeting right outside the terminal. Later it was time for Friendship Dinner with more than 30 Muslim leaders, some Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Protestants. We want everyone to discover Jesus.

Lots of security as just a few years ago Jimma was the scene for violence.

Everything behind the platform was packed with people in stands.

Taunggyi, Myanmar

Take a look at the video. It is only 85 seconds, but it is sure to touch your heart. What’s amazing is that this happened in a city where there are so very few Christians. Almost everyone you see responding is either a Buddhist or a Muslim.

Taunggyi Update – We had a wonderful back and forth conversation with TV, radio and print journalists.

I shared about God’s love through Jesus with leaders from Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Christianity. – Taunggyi, Myanmar

Taunggyi – I’m so fortunate to meet interesting people in my line of work. On my left is a Muslim gynecologist and on my right is a Buddhist lawyer and his wife. They told me how much they enjoyed my message of God’s love in Jesus.

It’s so wonderful to share the Gospel outside the four walls of the church. Pictured here are representatives from almost all the major world religions. Hearts were opened to hear about Jesus Christ.

The Gospel Revolution Seminar is underway in Taunggyi, Myanmar. Hundreds of pastors and church leaders are being equipped for ministry. Thank you partners for making this possible!

In spite of only 10 degrees Celsius there was a huge crowd. The people here in Taunggyi are precious. Huge response to receive new life in Christ. So many Buddhist and Muslim friends received healing. One man, paralyzed for 5 years, had waited since early morning on the field. Tonight he was walking and running like a young man.

This man, paralyzed from a stroke 5 years ago, was brought to the field early in the morning and waited all day for the service to begin. He had not been able to walk or even stand without aid. After he received his healing, he was running and jumping like a young man. Notice his warm clothing as the temperature dropped to around 10 degrees Celcius in the evening. Even this did not deter the people’s enthusiasm.

Many Muslims in attendance.
