Looking Back, Looking Forward

Remembering Martin Luther

UnknownToday marks the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Revolution. In Wittenburg, Germany, a simple monk named Martin Luther nailed his ninety-five theses to the door of the Wittenburg Castle Church. His hope was to spark an academic debate but instead rocked the religious world to the core. We have never been the same since that infamous day. We look back at the history that has shaped us and made us what we are today. You can read about this man’s fascinating life in Eric Metaxas’ book, Martin Luther: The Man Who Rediscovered God and Changed the World.

Welcome, Emmanuel!

Evangelist Emmanuel Maennlein

Interestingly, a French evangelist with a German name arrived today and will be the guest speaker for our Youth Explosion Conference. The theme for the conference is More Than Conquerors. Emmanuel Maennlein was here in 2009 for our first youth conference in which we had over 1,600 young people. Tomorrow, we will have 1,000+ youth to gather in Petite-Anse for a 2-day conference. We are anticipating a move of God as these future leaders gather together. We also pray that this conference will ignite a fervor in them to go out and rock their own world as agents of change in a country which so badly needs it.  Please pray for the youth of Haiti!
