Mission to the Cities: Impacting Miami in 2014
BY ALLAN MACHADO, Florida Conference vice president for Spanish-language Ministries
The Lord is calling us to impact urban areas with the message of hope with which God entrusted Adventists. Consider the fact that more than 80 percent of Florida’s population lives in large cities.
With this in mind, pastors from Florida and Southeastern conferences have joined together in south Florida to perform a great work. The goal is to impact the Greater Miami area. From February 1-8, an extraordinary event will be hosted in the city of Miami that will aim to glorify the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and proclaim His glorious plan of salvation in a comprehensive way—treating the health of the body and soul of community residents in Dade and Broward counties.
This important week kicks off at Miami International Airport Convention Center. It begins at 9:00 a.m. Saturday, February 1, with a musical worship service, followed by a message from renowned international evangelist Alejandro Bullón.
Resuming at 3:00 p.m., seminars will be available on topics that will answer important questions regarding family, youth, health, and finances, among others. At 5:00 p.m., the audience will enjoy a concert by well-known Christian singer Steve Green, followed by Pastor Bullón with the final message.
On February 2, the Miami International Airport Convention Center will open its doors from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. for the Total Health Expo 2014. Free of charge to the entire community, this event is sponsored by Florida Conference and Florida Hospital’s CREATION Health, in collaboration with dozens of other health organizations in the Miami area.
This evangelistic project includes more than 25 preachers who will come to Miami from across the U.S. to present messages of faith and trust in God at this special time. At 7:30 p.m. every night, beginning February 2, these evangelists will preach in almost 30 different places in Dade and Broward Counties, lifting Jesus Christ and confirming our faith in Him.
As we seek to truly impact this urban Florida community, pray that the Holy Spirit is poured out as we Impact Miami, and pray that many will come to know there is hope because we have a Savior, Christ our Lord.
