A few years ago, Rick Atchley spoke about one of his trips to Zambia. He preached for several hours under three mango trees to 400 people. He said:
“Twenty-five percent of my audience was dying of HIV. Everywhere I looked there were orphans. Everywhere I looked there were people praying for their next meal. And it hit me: I don’t care if you want to call me a pastor or a preacher. I don’t care what your view of the millennium is. And I don’t care if you want to sing with or without a guitar. Just come stand under that tree and help me tell those people about Jesus.”
That is my challenge to each of you. Let’s put aside our denominational differences and come together under the mango trees of Honduras and together tell these people about Jesus. If you can come personally–come. If you can make it possible for someone else to come–make it possible. If you can raise money for food packages–raise money.
Please ask God to show you what your role is to be in making His name known in Honduras. I am so excited just thinking about what God is doing in Honduras and what He will do in the coming months and years. Just imagine what will happen in one nation on one day…
“On Saturday July 20th, 2013, the week-long campaign will culminate in one historic day and one ground-breaking moment that will shake the entire nation at its core. 18 ministries will host 18 outreaches in the 18 largest venues in the heart of all 18 capital cities. Thousands will gather in their city and millions will watch the live television broadcast as it airs throughout every corner of Honduras, all of Latin America, and around the world.”
Please, PLEASE stand under the tree with me and thousands of others as we tell these people about Jesus. We serve the God who makes possible what is not possible for man.
Last night, David Platt said, “I want to be a part of something that can only be explained as the hand of God.” So do I. Will you join me?
May God’s Holy Spirit light a fire in each of you that compels you to do whatever it is He’s calling you to do.
