Partnership in action
Since May 2012, Global Media Outreach has cultivated a strong partnership with a large church in Lima, Peru called Alianza Cristiana y Misionera. This partnership has allowed us to invite contacts we reach online with the Gospel to evangelistic events in Lima and then connect them to the local church.
Bogged down by depression, Pedro found himself on the floor of a hotel room in Bolivia crying out to God to save his family from falling apart again.
For his whole adult life Pedro had been so absorbed by his career and his pursuit of money that his first marriage failed, but that didn’t stop him from continuing to pursue success. When he finally realized that those pursuits were leaving him broken and joyless, Pedro desperately turned to the Lord in prayer on the floor of that hotel room.
The next day, he divinely received an invitation to download Global Media Outreachs’s NextSteps app, which led to him and his new wife being invited to an event at our partner church in Lima, Alianza Cristiana y Misionera
In an emotional showing of saving faith, the couple surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ together that night and started faithfully attending the church. In fact, on the day of their baptisms, their two daughters made the decision to follow Christ as well. A whole family was saved!
Before their decision to follow Christ, Pedro and Maria were never married. After their experience, they submitted their relationship to God and started the process of entering a marriage covenant, which took place at the church this on May 28.
Not staying silent
Now that Pedro, Maria and their family have been saved by the grace of God, they are eager to share the story of Jesus with everyone they come into contact with.
“The problems we had before, we now take them with peace we KNOW that God is with us. Moving forward, we have the mission of taking the word of God to our family, co-workers and anyone who will hear. We have decided to follow Christ. We will not go back. “
We are so blessed to be able to partner with churches on the ground and introduce people like Pedro and his entire family to Jesus! Their testimony and commitment to evangelize will have a lasting impact on their community.
