SPECIAL

EDITION! NOVEMBER 2020

FIRST PRIORITY MIRACLE CHALLENGE hank you for helping Light for the Lost! We’re beginning to have hope that the miracle of raising $2 million for our missionaries by year’s end will happen.

T

I’ll quickly explain again why we’re doing this. Reaching people for Christ in all nations, no matter what the world throws at us, is our number one priority as believers! Look at Matthew 28:19, 20. We call it the Great Commission.

The First Priority Miracle Challenge we’ve placed before you since September 1 is how Light for the Lost demonstrates a tangible application of that sacred commitment. We urge you to join us! Inside this Special Edition of 360 Spotlight are two powerful elements. 1) Thrilling reports of how LFTL has assisted missionaries in reaching people for Christ despite the COVID-19 pandemic. 2) An eye-opening, but only partial, “Christmas wish list” of evangelism resources requested by

our missionaries. Please read these reports and look over the needs of our missionaries. Next, pray about giving a Christmas gift that will help them in their ministries. Christmas gifts of all sizes are needed and welcome! Thank you for helping Light for the Lost keep world evangelism priority number one, even in the midst of the storms our nation and world are facing. Rick Allen National Director Men’s Ministries/LFTL

Thank you for giving to help provide missionaries with the critically needed evangelism tools on their “Christmas wish list!”


OUR MISSIONARIES AR THANKS TO YOU!

D

espite a pandemic, social unrest, financial crises, and natural disasters, our missionaries skillfully and efficiently utilize LFTL funds to reach people for Christ in print, audio, video, Internet, and technology platforms! Why? Because they are determined to fulfill the Great Commission. And so are we! Will you partner with us to make sure they are always well resourced with evangelism tools?

Nick and Marilyn Krake use LFTL tools to reach kids on the Pacific island of Palau.

Missionaries (whom we can’t name) give FireBibles to Iranian pastors. Those interested in learning about Jesus get a Gospel of John.

Colombian police cadets receive Spanish Bibles and Roca Solida (Solid Rock) booklets from Paul and Kristi Robinson. LFTL funds purchased all these items.


RE WELL RESOURCED

Praise God! LFTL funds gave more than 4,000 Cuban ministers dozens of evangelism tools on Kindle tablets, which are used in weekly sermons and Bible studies.

In Eastern Congo, missionaries Bill and Sonia Shaw used LFTL funds to get evangelism booklets in-country before COVID-19 lockdowns took place. Now, 500 Congolese believers have those booklets.
