Big Break 09
We are still in sunny Florida, spending a few days with friends after our week in Panama City Beach for Big Break--a nationwide student conference, where students are trained in evangelism. The students are then sent out immediately to put into practice what they've learned with their literally 1,000's of peers who are at the beach for Spring Break. God did an AMAZING work this last week!!! Every year for the past 2 decades, there have been 4 weeks of "Big Break" that span the month of March. This last week of Big Break saw more changed lives than ever before in Big Break history. Over 13,500 people were talked with (not talked "at" from an upfront program, but face-to-face conversations). Out of those, over 5600 people listened to a complete and personal Gospel presentation, and an amazing 640 individuals accepted Christ in their lives as their personal Lord and Savior! God was at work--the weather was great, so people were out by the droves, and the 900+ students were faithful each day. There are so many individual stories that we could share (and will try to later) as we heard the testimonies each night from the students who labored all week. Please pray for these new believers as well as those who heard, but who did not make a decision that week. And praise God for His faithfulness!
