Global Evangelist Shares 'Extreme Faith'

Internationally known, self-supporting global evangelist David Gates of Gospel Ministries International spoke to students at Milo Adventist Academy as well as holding speaking engagements at churches in Roseburg, Canyonville, and Grants Pass, Ore., Dec. 14–15, 2007. He was also interviewed by Bob and Anita Heisler, of Better Life Television in Grants Pass.

Twenty-six churches in the Southern Oregon Conference were invited to attend, and at each location, not only were the pews packed, but hearts were stirred, resulting in entire congregations coming forward during altar calls.

"The youth were changed as they were challenged to put their all on the altar for service," says one Milo faculty member. Katrina Cooksley, a Milo senior, shared her desire to someday be a missionary pilot like "Uncle David" (as he loves to be referred to by youth).

Gospel Ministries International has taken the motto of "Extreme Faith," depending on God, as did George Müeller of years gone by. This radio and television evangelism has rapidly covered most of the continent of South America, Spain and Romania with plans to expand to other areas as God opens doors.
