A Filipino soldier in the feared New People’s Army (NPA) once came upon a SOWERS open air meeting in progress. The Holy Spirit convicted him, and he was so overwhelmed that he gave his life to God that day.
That alone is an amazing miracle, but the story doesn’t end there…
He then enrolled in SOWERS’ Level 1 and 2 training courses, and learned how to share the gospel with others. He’s now a full-time Sower supported by local churches and is one of the most fruitful open-air evangelists in the area!
One life saved has become the source of thousands more hearing about God’s salvation.
Local evangelists like Emmanuel K have immediate impact once they are trained to evangelize their communities. Here’s Emmanuel’s story:
"I came from a broken home and was often involved in fights and drinking. I vividly remember the day when I became a Christian. It was in August 1986, and I was in the market selling cigarettes. Something was going on at the edge of the market. So I moved across to see what was happening. I caught sight of a man painting something on a board, and I decided I was going to make trouble and stop him.
"But as I moved closer, what he was saying caught my attention. I forgot about causing a problem and listened closely. At the end of the meeting I prayed a simple prayer with the preacher, and he also followed me up. It took some time for my old ways to leave me, but slowly my life changed. I am now a church planter and a pastor, and have progressed through the various levels of the SOWERS Program."
