As we learned and experienced from the Carlos Annacondia crusade in April of 2016, extensive training of a crusade’s ministry teams is essential. We were required to begin preparation for the Annacondia crusade one year in advance. Although the preparation included more meetings than we would have ever chosen to attend or host, we saw the positive results—the power of the prayer and the excellence of the ministry teams.
With this experience in mind, Pastor Carlos began sending out teams−made up of a total of 70 of his people−to evangelize the area around the Colonia of Las Palmas. Armed with flyers, they went from house to house introducing themselves to area residents and inviting them to church and the upcoming crusade. In addition, those in the ministry teams began relationships with many new people. These connections included the offer to pray for any specific needs the families had.
An estimated 350 people attended the crusade, with close to 150 receiving Christ for the first time! Many also requested prayer for healing, the results of which have not yet come in. This “practice run” began to prepare the spiritual atmosphere of the area for the larger crusade in June. It also trained the workers for the many committees necessary for the upcoming crusade.
We believe the time has begun for the reaping of the last day harvest (with only the Father knowing the length of time this will be). In response to the cries of His people, the Lord will be sending an increased presence of His Spirit to earth. This increased presence will lift Jesus up and will draw all who will come to faith in Christ. This drawing will include the removing of the veil from the eyes of many who presently do not acknowledge Jesus as God or as the Messiah; or as the only way to renewed fellowship with the Father, resulting in eternal life.
In response to what we believe God has begun in many locations around the world, including Los Cabos, we want to be ready for our part in this great outpouring. The relatively small crusade at Las Palmas was just the beginning of what we believe will come to Los Cabos, Mexico, and to the ends of the earth.
If you have not read about our ‘Perimeter People’ initiative, an effort to cover the area of Los Cabos in prayer each and every day, please read the blog posted just before this one. Pray. Ask the Lord which day you could commit to praying for Los Cabos. Then, e-mail us and let us know when we can count on your prayers. Please, do not wait. We will begin to put together a calendar of prayer partners and commitments roll in.
We can never thank-you enough for every part each of you play in the transformation of Los Cabos. We would not be here without you!
