Peter’s Message for the New Year

A New Year; what an exciting prospect! Another 365 glorious days living in God’s grace with His blessings and the opportunity to worship and serve Him. We at Jesus Alive Gospel Outreach (JAGO) believe that 2015 will be a year of salvation for thousands of precious souls in the villages that we will be taking the Gospel to this year. This is going to be a significant year for JAGO; 2015 marks our 32-year anniversary and is also the year we intend to surpass the incredible number of more than 12 million registered decisions for Jesus.

We do not, however, focus too much on the past. Instead we say, as the Apostle Paul taught us, ‘We reach out to that which is to come so that we can take a hold of it.’

Our Gospel teams are now operating in four countries and are accomplishing amazing results for the Kingdom of God. There are at least another 30 countries in Sub Saharan Africa that still need to be reached. Africa needs the Gospel and although there is widespread evangelism in the cities, there is very little outreach in rural villages, which is where more than 50 % of the population lives.

We need your help to expand the Gospel into the thousands of African rural villages to those who have not heard it and as a result, many continue to engage in ancestral worship because they do not know the truth. Jesus said, “You will know the truth and the truth will make you free.”

As the church of Jesus Christ, we have been commissioned to ‘go into all the world and preach the gospel to every living creature.’ This is not a commission given only to evangelists, but it is given to all of us in the Body of Christ. You might ask, “But how do I as a believer, fulfil this commission? It seems impossible.” Well, I say to you that it is not impossible because God has made a way. JAGO has been called by God to reach out to these communities and we can accomplish this, together, through your financial contribution.

In Genesis Chapter 12, we learn that ‘we are blessed to be a blessing.’ For a nominal fee of only 300 NKr per year, you can be a blessing and help us reach and minister to people in rural Africa. By committing to this donation, you will be directly responsible for bringing people to their salvation during 2015. There is no greater blessing than to be the vehicle that God uses to bring eternal life.

This year please join me, my wife Ann, and our faithful teams in making a difference. Let the need to take the gospel to those who need it, drive the passion in your heart.

Thank you for caring and joining us in The Great Commission. May God’s richest blessings be upon you and your family.
