Please pray for our upcoming trips to the closed nation that we minister in, and the upcoming mission trips to:

Appalachia – June 23 – June 28

Nicaragua – July 29 – August 5

It is our pleasure to present to you Bridges for Life Ministries. BFL Ministries is a missionary organization with an emphasis on church planting.

Since 2005, BFL Ministries has seen over 800,000 lives make commitments to Christ and have seen over 400 house churches become established in a closed nation.

Currently, the ministry sponsors 47 full time church planters in this closed nation. Their purpose is to win souls to Christ and get them into a local church. If no church is in the area, they plant a church.

Our vision:

1,000,000 souls saved

1,000 churches planted

100 churches built

By 2020

Partners and Friends,

We hope that all is well with you as you march forward to the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus.  (Phil 3:14)  God has a great purpose for all of us.  #1 is to commit our lives to Him and serve Him.  And #2, that we would be a vessel to help others come to know Christ and commit their lives to Him as well. If anything in life is more important to us than those two points, then we are out of balance and our Christianity will feel flat.  We have to continually evaluate ourselves to see where we are at in our spiritual walk with Christ.  If we are excited and committed to anything more than our passion for God and His mission of sharing Christ, then we may need to reset our focus.  It is a daily battle that we as Christians face.  We need to ask ourselves, “Am I really sold out to him today?  Am I totally committed to winning souls as my final purpose?”

As we head into 2019, we are believing for the best year yet! In Jesus Name! Let’s fight together to ensure that more and more souls are making Heaven their destination!  Will you do it with me?

In December 2018, the ministry saw 4,849 souls make decisions for Christ in a closed nation. We would love to see 10,000 souls per month come the Jesus!

A team of 9 of us just returned from this closed nation two weeks ago.  The team was made up of folks from near Pittsburgh and Punxsutawney, PA and Naples, FL. It was an easy team to travel with as all of the participants have a deep commitment to helping those in need. We heard many great testimonies from throughout the land as the evangelists march on doing God’s work through their lives.

Edguar testified that he was sharing the Gospel and reaching souls through crusade work on December 29th, 30th, and Jan 1st and 2nd.  They were able to win 92 people to Christ.  The people that made commitments to Christ are currently being discipled by the territory leaders from a city within the closed nation.

Silvio said that a woman was traveling in a car on her way to the sanctuary of an idol in this closed nation.  While Silvia preached the Gospel and spread Gospel tracts, she parked her car close to him and asked him how to get to the place of the idol.  Before giving that information to her, he asked her if he could give her another explanation that she needed to know. So he talked to her about God’s plan of salvation and while he did, Silvio noticed that tears where rolling down her cheeks. The woman told him that another woman had told her words similar to what he had just said in another city just days before. Silvio gave her a Gospel tract and she made a decision to accept Christ into her life in that moment.  She threw away the flowers for the idol that she was going to present and left. We are working on discipling her now.  Praise God!

Thank-you again for all you do and for your assistance to the ministry. It is because of people like you that we are able to win souls and impact lost humanity for Christ.

As a side note, one of our partners is believing God to purchase a moped for an Evangelistic Team in the closed nation. The cost is around $2,500. We currently have $400 raised for this.  If you would like to help with this project, please let us know 🙂
