The Kingdom is Here!
The blind see, the lame walk, the Word is proclaimed, and people are redeemed daily through the planned and spontaneous evangelism of Favor’s missionary leaders. We are seeing revival overflow all over South Sudan and Uganda. A significant success factor in so many contexts is the cohesiveness of all the ministry departments. As we prepare to outreach in different contexts, our various branches work cohesively to promptly act on the opportunity to share Jesus.
Favor reaches many considered to be unreachable by promoting crusades and outreach to the communities. Because God is worthy for all to worship him, our efforts are growing to reach every corner of both South Sudan and Uganda. As we continue our outreach initiatives, more reports are coming in monthly to tell of the amazing things God is doing.
Due to these great revivals breaking out in the cities, the street gangs are slowly diminishing and laying down their guns. We even have seen God’s salvation cause the crime rate to lower.
Our Evangelism Strategy
It begins by finding a relationship to the village or specific context. The beautiful reality is that each outreach leads to more outreaches because it all based on relationships. Here’s an example!
We travel to prisons, hospitals, marketplaces, and unreached villages all the time. And, as we minister, we are searching for more and more relationships to continue the spread of the Gospel.
Our friend, Clement, who we met in a prison outreach, is a member of the Merle people. Never before were we able to initiate relationships with these people. And, in a hostile and/or exclusive environment, it’s best to find a person of the tribe to be our bridge. Because of our outreach to a prison, we were able to reach to a whole people group through Clement. He was radically saved and shortly after being released from prison he invited teams to bring an outreach and a PBS (Portable Bible School) to share the Good News with his people. The method is simple, but impactful. God saves through relationship, therefore we will share through relationship.
Once this relationship is established, our House of Prayer teams prepare to travel for a 3-day outreach. The team boldly and compassionately go door-to-door to introduce themselves, share a Gospel account, and invite them for a gathering planned at a chosen location in the village or city. Our HOP teams are at the forefront of the mission, often traveling on foot far and wide. These outreaches open doors for communities to be changed, PBS teams to come, and for administrative teams to come and scope out logistics and resources for church planting.
