Story number 4 for 11 Sep 2000

By September 11, 2000

Elsewhere, last week’s evangelism conference in Ecuador has motivated church leaders from across Latin America. Latin America Mission’s Ken MacHarg filed this report. “While much of the fourth Latin American Congress on Evangelism focussed on new ways to reach people across the continent, such as the poor, children at risk, and indigenous groups, delegates were reminded to feed their spiritual life and reflect theologically about what they are doing. Speakers challenged the congress to reach out to the lost, seeking to meet people in society where they are, in their context, rather than inviting them to come to a crusade, or expecting them to be saved in church. Peruvian theologian, Tito Paredes said that this event was a milestone, in that it purposely brought together Evangelicals and Pentecostals for prayer, fellowship and ministry. For Mission Network News, I’m Ken MacHarg in Quito, Ecuador.”
