Awakening Parents and Bringing Revival to Youth: Marta Silva

The Lord told Marta to go wake up parents, to tell them the dangers that their children were facing. She got a room, often at the school, and went door to door to invite parents. She is also talking directly to young people. She is experiencing revival now in her region (the northeast.) She tells you her simple formula. You can email her at Fishers-Christ@hotmail.com… or you can simply replicate this model. Or hear your own.

A couple of years ago I met Marta Silva a couple of years ago at Calvary Pentecostal Campground, where we were both worshiping, going to summer camp-meeting. she told me of her new project. I probably told her of my podcast. This season, as we go into summer, I felt to have her on the ‘cast. Normally, I focus more on youth than children during the summer. I felt that right now was the right time for this idea to air. What about focusing on youth in your neighborhood this summer? What can you do?

Does it seem hopeless? It probably seems hopeless when the teen that Marta was talking to told her that he worshiped satan, but it was only a week later when he came back to her and gave his life to the Lord. You know, the Lord Jesus is a better lord than is satan. LOL. Catch Marta’s enthusiasm!

I apologize for the sound quality. We had a number of challenges in getting this interview long distance. I did what I could in audio editing to make her voice louder. If you have expertise to share on how to do long distance interviewing — or sound editing — feel free to contact me.

In the meantime …. see Jesus in the youth. When did we see you naked, hungry or in prison? When you saw the least of these. This probably means youth too, right? They are hurting, and yet may not know, literally no have any idea of which way to turn. They may never have heard of the saving work of Jesus Christ… or possibly even of the 10 Commandments. It is time to wake up!

Does Loving Mean Accepting All Ideas?

Young people want to avoid conflict so much that they will prevent important conversations. Of course, peace is of high value. Is it more important than truth? Is it rude, by definition, to have a contrary opinion? Is it better to be politely quiet than to let someone go to hell? Or defend your faith? Most young adults would say “YES!”

Are you and your young person equipped to have an answer in today’s world? Could your teen stand up to an atheist professor? A nice looking, popular friend who mocks the faith? Is this same value swamping your church? Are you equipped?

What I am doing here is an updated version of “Apologetics.” In the best Christian schools, a class called Apologetics is offered. Most of the courses that I have seen, however, have been limited to classical questions and are watered down. In this series, I attempt to answer some of the greatest challenges to the faith in current culture.

Children need these answers, because these mocking, unthought-through values are common everywhere. They need answers. Middle schoolers are talking about this. Teachers mention this. While pastors are not in this world — we live in the world of faith — most members are! We live in a world contrary to faith and mocking of faith. So this 9+ part series, directly addressing current challenges, is vital for any Christian home.

But that is not all! There are bonus episodes in the CD set.
*Bonus 1 CD discussing the importance of Sunday School/Children’s Church and how to evaluate program in which to place your child.
*Bonus 2 CD of prayer for children
*Bonus 3 is a tenth CD discussing yet another answer.

It is a deal! Send $15.00 today to P.O. Box 971 Cedar Park, Texas 78630, being sure to let me know your address!

Imagine how good you will feel when that slick, smart sounding bully doesn’t close down your kid. With these 9 (actually, 10) answers, you and your children will have an answer for the hope that is within you.

Be sure to share this offer with others. Let them know. This is vital information for right now. Have an answer for the hope that is within you.

Food & great testimonies coming up

This weekend, I’ll talk about holiday food and how healthy it is! Next week, we will hear the testimony of a young person turned from drugs to supernatural service. Then we will hear from a man who saw a baby raised from the dead when he was 12, who today founds churches everywhere from the USA to Yemen. He will tell us how to raise a generation for supernatural service, representing the love of Jesus.
