The participants were greatly motivated to reach out to the people with the gospel of Jesus Christ with divine passion and love. They were also encouraged to raise up believers as pastors, evangelists and as leaders to reach this and the next generation.
The meeting came to a close with communion service as every participant took part in it and remembered the Lord’s sacrifice and His covenant that propels everyone to take His love to the ends of the earth.
Pray for all the participants of the IMPACT seminar that they may go ahead in the power of Christ into the unreached and less reached places and spread the gospel. Pray that they may withstand all the oppositions and may make use every opportunity to reach and disciple people in Christ.
