Dominion Republicby Aimee Herd : Jul 19, 2010 : Joshua A. Goldberg – Christian Post

“Projects like this show that evangelism is not only for pastors, but for anyone who longs for those around them to experience the hope and love found only in Jesus Christ.”

 The Christian Post reports on the effectiveness of BGEA’s My Hope ministry in the Dominican Republic, as 69,188 people turned to the Lord during the evangelism outreach this year.

Over 5,500 churches worked together on the project which involved programs where Christians opened their homes for meetings and events—a combined total of 59,000 of them—including a TV sermon and testimony from either Rev. Billy or Franklin Graham.

Bill Conard, Vice President of international ministries for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association noted, “These faithful Christians took a bold step in inviting their friends and neighbors to their homes, and God truly worked through their efforts and prayers.”

Future My Hope outreaches are being planned for Malawi, and selected areas in Asia, as well as possible ministry to Portugal and Spain.

Christians across the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico this year opened their homes for meetings and witnessed a combined total of 69,188 make commitments to Jesus Christ, reported the ministry behind the evangelism outreach.

“These faithful Christians took a bold step in inviting their friends and neighbors to their homes, and God truly worked through their efforts and prayers,” said Bill Conard, vice president of international ministries for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

For months, Christians across the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico were prepared and equipped for the project – part of the BGEA’s “My Hope” ministry.

The programs culminated in a combined total of more than 59,000 home events in March and April, which included a TV program featuring a sermon from Billy or Franklin Graham and a personal testimony from the host.

As a result, 55,391 people in the Dominican Republic made commitments to Christ. In Puerto Rico, 13,797 did the same.

Since My Hope began in 2002, such projects have been implemented in 50 countries.

Upcoming projects this year will take place in Malawi and four “sensitive” countries in Asia. Preparations are underway for potential My Hope outreaches next year in Portugal, Spain, Haiti and select African countries.
