During a recent six-week evangelistic outreach across the Fiji islands, Impact World Tour (IWT), the global arm of Youth With a Mission, recorded nearly 17,500 decisions for Christ. Local Fiji pastors likened the crusade to a “spiritual bomb” going off in the mostly Indian-populated islands, IWT reported. Despite many rainy days, organizers said they were able to share the gospel with 165,000 people in 16 cities, 24 schools and three prisons. Beginning Sept. 3 the 110-member evangelism teams held crusades across the islands, incorporating various types of ministry such as men displaying feats of strength, island dancers, hip-hop dancers and extreme sports. The outreaches drew many, including the largely unevangelized Indo-Fijians, who live in the South Pacific. “One Indian pastor shared with me after one campaign night that he knew of four Indian families in his neighborhood who had given their lives to Christ, and he had been approached by another man who had a family of six to come to his home to share about Christ and pray for them,” said David Cole, IWT regional director. “We were excited to see whole families respond to give their lives to Christ, often led by the fathers bringing their families forward to respond.” IWT’s Web site also records numerous healings during the crusades, including that of a 9-year-old girl who was healed of a paralysis and a 7-year-old boy who was healed of deafness in one ear.
