I have preached in so many churches here that I’ve forgotten what I’ve said to whom – Baptist, Pentecostal, Nazarene, Assemblies, and a few that I don’t know what they were.  It doesn’t really matter what the denomination has been because these people just want to hear from God. There have been divisions between these churches for as long as anyone can remember, but that has all vanished.  They are ready for a change. There is a hope of revival in the air and nothing else matters.

I wish I could take credit for what is happening here, but honestly, I really don’t know what I am doing. I can’t understand a word that is being spoken around me, so I don’t even know what I’m supposed to do next.  But all that doesn’t matter.  I just stand up and deliver the message that the Lord has just given me, which usually comes to me just minutes before I have to deliver it – sometimes while I’m delivering it. No, it’s not me; it’s something that is going on between God and His people. I feel like I’m on the outside listening in while they and their God are having a great time together.

Yesterday, we were at a camp that had been established to rehabilitate men who had been lost in drugs and bring them to salvation.  I understand that, in the 14 years that this camp has been in operation, hundreds of men have come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Many pastors have come out of here and established churches all over Cabe Verde.

We gave an altar call at the end of the second service and everyone came down.  I’m not sure that they fully understood what we were asking for, but about 50 men came down to the altar.  Oh well, we prayed them all through anyway, just to make sure.

In between the morning and afternoon services, we have been handing out handfuls of tracts and sending everyone out in twos to go witnessing in the area around whichever church we are at.  It works like a charm!  This is something new for almost everyone – they have heard of this, but have never done it. The results are always stunning and immediate – souls come in for the service and many get saved. Once they realize how simple this is, it is as if a light bulb goes off in their head.  They get it. Revival is this simple. Go get the lost and bring them in to the House of God so they can be saved, and you’ve got revival! (more…)
