93 Make Decisions for Christ

Well, this is long overdue.  Even then, we rejoice in God's doing.  It is marvelous in our eyes.

"I needed Jesus in my life before it is too late. Thank you for putting on this event (that has helped me find Him)", wrote Leilonie, 19, after committing her life to Jesus Christ at SWIM's Evening of Hope event on March 19th here in the Twin Cities.

"Before coming here tonight life wasn't worth living. Now it is," said Carley, 14, who had also committed her life to Christ for the first time.

These are a few of the many responses we received following the Evening of Hope event that SWIM hosted on March 19th in Brooklyn Center, a Northwest Minneapolis suburb. A few hundred people flocked to the Miracle Empowerment Center not only to sample the live music performance by national bands Superchick, Bread of Stone, and Manic Drive but also for a chance to hear a message of Hope from our team. To the glory of God, 93 people made decisions to follow Christ.

Evening of Hope was held in conjunction with Accelerate Conference aimed at empowering and equipping believers and Christian leaders with tools for ministry.

In the spirit of the Lausanne Movement and conference for world evangelization coming up in Cape Town, South Africa October 2010, SWIM Ministries has been invited to conduct a Festival of Hope in partnership with Malawi Churches in the city of Lilongwe, Malawi later this Fall. Please pray with us as we shift our focus toward this Africa initiative and the Lausanne World Congress. We also have other initiatives around Africa throughout the year. Pray with us for needed resources and for good organization for maximum impact on the ground.
