Peter Youngren had a successful Gospel festival in Makassar last week, despite death threats, last-minute location changes, and blasphemy charges. Just three days before the festival was to begin, the mayor pulled the location permit for the festival. After a couple of other locations fell through, a large church finally agreed to have the festival there, with large screens in fields outside the church to handle the people who couldn’t get inside. Youngren and his event organizers were concerned Muslims wouldn’t come to a church building, but were pleasantly surprised when there was standing room only! Over the next few days, there were hundreds of healings, including one woman who came to the festival on a stretcher, but left walking. As a result of these healings, many came to know Christ.
Pray for the church in Makassar, as they now need to follow-up with the new believers in their area. Pray for these new believers as they begin their walks with Christ.
