Hello from Colombia!
Just over two days into the South America portion of our tour and our team is already running full steam ahead. Despite only being here a few days, there are so many experiences I would like to share with you. Two in particular filled my heart so full of joy. more >>
Liberty University was able to spread the gospel to 2.4 million people from the '10/40 window,' known as the area that lies 10 and 40 degrees north of the world's equator, through their partnership with Global Media Outreach (GMO), an evangelistic outreach ministry.
Michelle Diedrich, chief marketing officer for GMO said the initiative to spread the gospel online also gave students the ability to become online missionaries as they were able to respond to the new believers while following up with them after making the decision to commit their lives to Christ.
"Liberty's sponsorship was originally intended to reach at least a million people in one day with the gospel but because of the growing cost effectiveness of online missions, we were actually able to hit a high of 2.4 million gospel presentations in one day, a one day milestone for both GMO and Liberty," Diedrich said. more >>
Harold Scott, 72, of Green Bay, Wis., has spent much of his earned wealth sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with passers-by who see his billboard signs on America's highways that read "Life is nothing without God" and "Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world," among other evangelistic messages.
The truck driver of 43 years has spent $600,000 thus far on the on-going billboard campaign and isn't making any money off of his venture. "We're just trying to get the word of God out," Scott said, adding that by the first of the year he will have spent another $150,000.
Among the locations where his billboards can be viewed is Highway 41 in Green Bay, which happens to be one of the entry points to Lambeau Field, home of the Packers, where he estimates 75,000 football fans will read the signs during the NFL's regular season. more >>

The daughter of a Southwest Louisiana pastor, who was shot to death during a revival service before 60 church members including his wife, says if her father had a chance to speak to his killer, he would say, "I forgive you and I love you." The shooter's motive remains a mystery.
Pastor Ronald J. Harris Sr. of Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles, La., was preaching to about 60 people, including his wife and daughter, on Friday night when Woodrow Karey Jr., a former deacon at the church, shot him twice, according to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.
Pastor's daughter, Talisha Harris, told The Associated Press the family cannot figure out why Karey, a member of the church until four years ago, killed her father. "One question I do want to ask him is why. My dad had a big heart. He'd help anybody," she said. more >>
