Celebrate Jesus Fest 2012
On November 17th, HEH will be partnering with Way of the Cross Ministries to reach out to the people of South Texas through the Celebrate Jesus Festival.
Last year, HEH partnered with WOTC to do the Celebrate Jesus Festival. In this festival, WOTC partnered with over 200 different churches and ministries, and had over 3000 volunteers. In this outreach, 18,000 people were in attendance, 7500 families received 30lbs of groceries, and over 3000 people accepted Jesus as their savior that day.
This year, WOTC is planning to ramp things up. They are expecting 35,000 people to be in attendance, and are planning to give 15,000 families groceries. According to Ben Butler, this will be the largest food outreach done by a ministry in Texas’ history.
Obviously, an outreach of this kind requires a lot of food. For HEH’s part, the cost for getting the required amount shipped from Blissfield, MI to Mercedes, TX will be about $20,000. We need individuals, churches, and organizations that would be willing to partner with us in order to make this happen.
Last year, great things happened for the Kingdom. Even greater things are expected this year, with double the attendance. Please partner with us to see the Kingdom of God advanced in South Texas, and be a part of thousands of people coming to Christ.
