Sharing God’s Grace using Taekwondo

 
 

Over 3,500 people living in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, heard the saving gospel of Jesus Christ from August 2-13! The Taekwondo team, BreakThrough, affiliated with Grace Ministries International, shared this message through thirteen 45-minute, high-energy demonstrations performed in schools, parks, and other public areas. The presentations depicted man’s sin and our need for salvation through faith in Christ’s death and resurrection telling the story both through martial arts and the Word of God. In the process the team broke over 230 boards and 200 roof tiles with their hands, feet, elbows, and heads.

Not only did this ministry reach the hearts of many who had never heard the gospel, but it opened several doors and created new contacts for Grace Bible Church which began meeting in its new location just three months ago. In addition to hosting BreakThrough for a week and a half, Grace Bible Church experienced increased attendance with over 30 attending last Thursday night’s Bible study and around 50 attending last Sunday’s church service—and these numbers do not include the team! GMI missionaries Alex and Deltha Gulart and Jerry and Sandi Bomers were so encouraged to see new faces coming through the door in addition to the many consistent attendees of this truly international church in an international city.

Thanks for your prayers, support, and encouragement!
