Colombia Celebrates 201 Years!

Today, all over the country of Colombia, people will be parading, celebrating, partying, and honoring its nation’s leaders and military because July 20th is their Independence Day!

If you’d like to read a brief history of how they gained independence from Spain 201 years ago, click here. It’s a very interesting story, no doubt. Here’s a hint: it involves a flower vase!  🙂

Colombia is a beautiful country with very kind people. But it is a country that needs the Gospel, just as much as the rest of the world! They don’t need more religion. They already have loads of that. They need the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They don’t need to hear more facts about Jesus, but they need to hear how they can be personally saved by His redemptive work on the cross.

It’s probably safe to say that 90-95% of all Colombians have never heard a true presentation of the Gospel. Will you pray that we can raise our support and get there soon? Will you pray that more laborers would surrender their lives to take this message to Colombia and around the world? How about you?
