More than 245000 people came forward to accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour after watching the new Christian film, Light Your World.
Christian artist Danny Gokey and Darren Mulligan from We Are Messengers shared their testimonies, along with multiple people from around the world. The event was hosted by Andrew and Wendy Palau.
Leading up to the event, believers were encouraged to take the “Light Your World Challenge,” which involved making a commitment to pray for five friends who were not believers. Over 10,000 signed up for the challenge.
The hope for Light Your World was for believers to share the Good News of the gospel with their friends and family members.
“In these dark times, we need more than empty resolutions and wishful thinking,” said Andrew Palau. “We need true hope. And that is exactly what this program was able to offer. We’re so blessed to see how God used Light Your World. And we’re praying for each and every individual whose life was changed as a result of this outreach effort.”
After the film premiere, the ministry used geo-targeted digital ads throughout the month of January to share testimonies—ultimately reaching more than 43 million people in 237 different nations.
As a result, 245 609 of those individuals indicated that they made a decision for Christ.
The film is still available for viewing at lightyourworld.live.
