An evangelistic movement sweeps Colombia.

By October 8, 2003

Colombia (MNN)–This past spring, an amazing door opened to a new initiative in Colombia. A ministry movement in Latin America called “Plan of 1,000 Days” is a vision on a countrywide basis for evangelism.

It works like this: that the church, on a citywide basis, believers mobilize, simultaneously for evangelism and planting new churches. The movement represents the love of Christ and the unity of the body.

Global Missions Fellowship’s Sam Ingrassia recently trained Christians in five cities to evangelize with the Evangecube. “They saw the effectiveness of evangelism and equipping individual workers to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. So, what happened was they challenged us to raise a certain number of cubes, which was astounding to me. They asked for 30-thousand Evangecubes.”

Ingrassia says the request took him by surprise, because he had brought 500 cubes with him for their campaign. The challenge in place, GMF’s team returned home to begin raising the funds from the North American church.

GMF will distribute the cubes in 150 cities in November. Ingrassia explains that the evangelistic part works exponentially. Consider, he urges, how many could hear the Gospel if each cube is used to reach 100 people.

That brings the team to phase two of the plan. With the evangelism, there will be response. GMF’s Mike Jorgenen explains his role in this groundbreaking project. “They [the Latin American churches] indicated that they had not yet been planting new churches, so they asked Global Missions Fellowship to train their best churches how to multiply themselves by planting new churches.”

Jorgenson says the goal is that by this time next year, they hope to be in about 12 different cities with them, training what they call ‘model churches’.
