Spanish-speaking Churches Hold Outreach on Both Eastern and Western Slopes »
Fourteen pastors and a Mexico Conference administrator from Sonora, Mexico came to Colorado, May 12-19 to share the Good News with Hispanic churches around the Denver Metro and Grand Junction areas.
Held in the Spanish churches and attended by church members and invited guests, the meetings culminated in the final presentations May 20-22 which were held at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction for the Western Slope and LifeSource Adventist Fellowship for the Eastern Slope areas.
A well-known evangelist Alejandro Bull
ón was the final presenter of the Christ-centered messages entitled, “Christ is the Answer.” Before his retirement, Pastor Bull
ón held numerous large evangelistic meetings in sports venues in South America that could hold as many as 60-120,000 people.
Tiffany Oaks was one of the many touched by Pastor Bullon’s preaching. Through many life trials, Oaks had turned away from God, but an unexpected friendship from work helped her reconnect with Him. She joined a Spanish-speaking church and
decided to take the next step and be baptized. Unfortunately, that did not happen as soon as she hoped.
Last year Tiffany began to read the Bible, reminding her once again that she wanted to commit her life fully to Christ. Last week, she received a phone call from a friend, telling her about Pastor Bullón and the public evangelism service in Grand Junction. Tiffany made a huge decision and traveled five hours from Farmington, NM to be baptized by the evangelist on Saturday, May 26. “I knew that it was time to fully let go of the old me and be new in Christ and truly follow God,” Tiffany said.
Many lives were changed during the two weeks of outreach and evangelists saw 45 people baptized with nearly 90 still preparing for baptism.
