Fourteen years after Argentina-born evangelist Luis Palau took the Gospel to his homeland’s capital of Buenos Aires, his ministry has returned with the same message of hope for a new generation of Argentines.
More than 200,000 people turned out to The Palau Association’s citywide campaign.
It claims millions more were reached through TV, radio and social media and 20,000 responses for Christ.
More than a thousand local churches supported the crusade.
The Palau Association spent more than three years planning the event.
It gathered pastors, evangelists and believers from throughout the region and empowered them with tools and opportunities to use their own gifts.
Christian Newswire reports its aim was to further the unity of the Church and the work of the Kingdom.
While Luis Palau faced consistent opposition when he first started preaching the Gospel on the streets of his hometown 70-years ago, his ministry reports a greater willingness to receive the Gospel as well as a significant growth in the church.
His evangelist son Andrew who led the crusade said “It was such a privilege to be back in Argentina where God has used Dad and Mum and our team so powerfully for so many years.”
“Many faithful believers have given their lives for this region. They were faithful to the Lord’s calling and planted many Gospel seeds.”
“To see the fruit of their hard work and to be able to take part in the great harvest – it’s humbling and thrilling.”
