- Teams were witnessing to the lost
all over America this past weekend,
brought together by anation-wide simulcast
originating out of here ina church in Denver Colorado.
It was put on by Dare toShare, a groups whose goal
is to see every teenagerin the country evangelized
by their fellow teens.
Ciara Abeyta and her witnessing pals
ended up giving up the gift of eternity
to a woman and a half dozenhomeless people this day.
- Continue to pray for her.
We told her about Jesusand she accepted Jesus
there on the spot.
The people were really thankful
that we were there andthey felt so blessed
and they all acceptedJesus right then and there.
- [Paul] Dare to Sharefounder, Greg Stier, said
teens in more than 90towns took to the streets
and used the simulcastto instantaneously share
their witnessing adventures
and encourage one another to be brave.
- Listen, it doesn'tmatter if you're scared.
You have the Holy Spirit of God
who's dwelling inside of you
and he will give you power.
Jesus said, "You will receivepower when the Holy Spirit
"comes on you and youwill be my witnesses."
So yield to the Spirit,open up your mouth,
let 'er rip and God'lltake care of the rest.
- Go for it.
The hardest part is the firstpart where you're really
nervous about going up to people.
But once you get past that blockage,
it just flows from you andGod just works through you.
- [Paul] Stier says God wants to use this
high-tech inter-connectedness of today
to mightily multiply believers' witness.
- Christians are like, well,technology is of the Devil.
You know what, there's astory in the Old Testament
about Benaiah who's thebody guard of King David,
and he went up against anEgyptian that was seven foot tall,
with nothing but a club.
And that Egyptian had abig spear and he grabbed
that spear from the Egyptian's hands
and he stabbed him with his own spear.
Well, you know what, wecan take the technology
that Satan has used it for evil,
and stab him with his own technology
and advance the Kingdom of God.
- [Paul] One highlight of this simulcast
was 77 year-old crosscarrier, Arthur Blessed,
passing his anointing andthe cross he shouldered
across the world, to America's teenagers.
The simulcast alsofeatured dozens of bands
throughout the land, all playing the same
worship songs at the very same time.
Then those 90 somelocations all bowed together
in a nationwide prayer
that this is would just be astart, that this would ignite
the spreading of Jesus' name and love
from one end of the country to the other.
