Venezuela Lago District carries out Global Evangelism Day event
Churches on the Venezuela Lago District joined together to celebrate the Global Day of Evangelism on 28 May 2022.
It was a special time when each local church reached its community, attending to the physical and spiritual needs of the most vulnerable people. The churches separated from their routine, getting out of the four walls of the building to fulfill the task of making disciples.
“We had never had an experience like this,” said one of the volunteers. “There were always five or six people out to evangelize, but yesterday all the churches did it together."
Over 500 people of all ages across the district shared the gospel, reaching more than 1,000 people with a message of love and hope. The volunteers felt it was a rewarding experience filled with love, companionship, and teamwork.
The district includes 17 organized churches that carried out different activities in accordance with the volunteers’ talents and creativity. Even some of the church-type missions joined in recreational activities, evangelism in the streets, delivery of leaflets and flyers, and a screening of the JESUS film outdoors.
Teams also shared the gospel with the Wayuu and Yukpa ethnic groups, went house-to-house to spread the Word of God, and used tools such as the evange-cube, ball, hat, and blanket, among others.
The families and people in the communities were receptive and shared about the joy this activity brought them.
"We liked it very much,” said the Flores family. “They must do it more often.”
