  • - NARRATOR: BORN IN 1934, LUIS PALAU GREW UP IN A
  • 00:01:30.060 --> 00:01:33.150
  • SMALL RESORT TOWN LOCATED IN BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA.
  • 00:01:33.170 --> 00:01:37.100
  • ALTHOUGH RAISED WITH A STRICT CATHOLIC
  • 00:01:37.120 --> 00:01:39.200
  • UPBRINGING, IT WAS THROUGH THE WITNESS OF A BRITISH
  • 00:01:39.220 --> 00:01:42.180
  • MISSIONARY THAT LUIS' PARENTS CAME TO PERSONAL
  • 00:01:42.200 --> 00:01:44.210
  • FAITH IN CHRIST.
  • 00:01:44.230 --> 00:01:46.120
  • LUIS'S FATHER, A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN,
  • 00:01:46.140 --> 00:01:49.060
  • HAS BECOME ACTIVE IN BOLDLY PREACHING THE
  • 00:01:49.080 --> 00:01:51.150
  • GOSPEL WHICH HAD A PROFOUND IMPACT ON
  • 00:01:51.170 --> 00:01:53.160
  • LUIS'S LIFE.
  • 00:01:53.180 --> 00:01:55.030
  • - LUIS PALAU: ONE DAY WHEN I WAS ABOUT 6 I
  • 00:01:55.050 --> 00:01:57.170
  • FIGURE, I WOKE UP EARLY AND I SAW A LIGHT IN THE
  • 00:01:57.190 --> 00:02:00.120
  • OFFICE THAT HE HAD.
  • 00:02:00.140 --> 00:02:03.030
  • AND HE WAS ON HIS KNEES, AND I WENT IN AND IT WAS
  • 00:02:03.050 --> 00:02:04.240
  • EARLY, AND I SAID DAD, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
  • 00:02:04.260 --> 00:02:06.090
  • AND HE SAID, I'M READING THE BIBLE AND PRAYING AND
  • 00:02:06.110 --> 00:02:09.130
  • SINGING TO THE LORD, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:02:09.150 --> 00:02:12.090
  • AND THEN HE SAID SOMETHING THAT LATER ON
  • 00:02:12.110 --> 00:02:15.020
  • CAME BACK TO ME.
  • 00:02:15.040 --> 00:02:16.240
  • I SAID, WHAT ARE YOU READING?
  • 00:02:16.260 --> 00:02:18.040
  • HE SAID THE BOOK OF PROVERBS, HE SAID.
  • 00:02:18.060 --> 00:02:20.180
  • AND HE SAID, WHEN YOU GROW UP YOU READ THE BOOK
  • 00:02:20.200 --> 00:02:22.240
  • OF PROVERBS.
  • 00:02:22.260 --> 00:02:24.170
  • IT HAS 31 CHAPTERS, ONE FOR EVERY DAY OF THE
  • 00:02:24.190 --> 00:02:26.120
  • LONGEST MONTH.
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:28.070
  • READ IT EVERY DAY, AND YOU'LL BE SUCCESSFUL IN
  • 00:02:28.090 --> 00:02:30.090
  • FAMILY, IN MONEY, IN STUDIES AND EVERYTHING.
  • 00:02:30.110 --> 00:02:33.180
  • AND IT TURNED OUT TO BE THAT WAY.
  • 00:02:33.200 --> 00:02:37.080
  • - JUST A FEW YEARS LATER, LUIS'S FATHER WAS
  • 00:02:37.100 --> 00:02:40.020
  • DIAGNOSED WITH BRONCHIAL PNEUMONIA, AND AT THE AGE
  • 00:02:40.040 --> 00:02:42.200
  • OF 35 PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:02:42.220 --> 00:02:45.070
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:02:45.090 --> 00:02:50.240
  • - I WAS WONDERING, WHAT'S GOD'S PLAN?
  • 00:02:50.260 --> 00:02:53.020
  • WHY WOULD HE TAKE MY DAD SO YOUNG SO SUDDENLY?
  • 00:02:53.040 --> 00:02:56.140
  • IN NINE DAYS HE WAS SICK AND HE DIED.
  • 00:02:56.160 --> 00:02:58.280
  • AND THEN I REMEMBER MY DAD SAYING, READ THE BOOK
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:03:01.270
  • OF PROVERBS.
  • 00:03:01.290 --> 00:03:03.210
  • IT BECAME LIKE MY FATHER TEACHING ME EVEN TODAY.
  • 00:03:03.230 --> 00:03:06.280
  • SEVERAL JOURNALISTS ASKED ME, YOU TALK ABOUT YOUR
  • 00:03:07.000 --> 00:03:11.130
  • FATHER'S DEATH A LOT.
  • 00:03:11.150 --> 00:03:13.060
  • AND I REALIZE THAT I HAVE.
  • 00:03:13.080 --> 00:03:15.090
  • AND NOW THAT I MYSELF AM 83 GOING ON 84 THIS YEAR,
  • 00:03:15.110 --> 00:03:22.070
  • I BEGIN TO REALIZE IT HAD A BIG EFFECT ON ME.
  • 00:03:22.090 --> 00:03:24.250
  • - HE WAS LEFT AS AN ORPHAN FATHER AND HIS
  • 00:03:24.270 --> 00:03:27.230
  • MOTHER WAS A WIDOW, AND HE'S ALWAYS HAD A BURDEN
  • 00:03:27.250 --> 00:03:31.040
  • FOR THOSE PEOPLE AND HAS HELPED, PEOPLE DON'T KNOW
  • 00:03:31.060 --> 00:03:34.210
  • HOW MUCH HE'S HELPED WITH THAT AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:03:34.230 --> 00:03:37.150
  • SO THAT WAS A PROFOUND INFLUENCE ON HIM WHEN HIS
  • 00:03:37.170 --> 00:03:39.290
  • FATHER DIED WHEN HE WAS ONLY TEN.
  • 00:03:40.010 --> 00:03:42.200
  • - SADLY A FEW SHORT YEARS AFTER LUIS'S DAD
  • 00:03:42.220 --> 00:03:46.040
  • PASSED AWAY, THE FAMILY HAD LOST A LOT OF THEIR
  • 00:03:46.060 --> 00:03:50.050
  • WEALTH, SO LUIS I THINK THE DEATH OF LUIS'S DAD
  • 00:03:50.070 --> 00:03:56.130
  • DID A LOT OF THINGS FOR HIM.
  • 00:03:56.150 --> 00:03:59.010
  • ONE, IT MADE HIM GROW UP REALLY FAST BECAUSE HE
  • 00:03:59.030 --> 00:04:03.050
  • SAW HIMSELF RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS MOM AND
  • 00:04:03.070 --> 00:04:05.240
  • HIS SISTERS.
  • 00:04:05.260 --> 00:04:08.050
  • - PAT PALAU: SHE WAS A TYPICAL WIFE OF THOSE DAYS WHO BORE
  • 00:04:08.070 --> 00:04:11.280
  • CHILDREN, TOOK CARE OF THE CHILDREN, MANAGED THE
  • 00:04:12.000 --> 00:04:15.060
  • HOUSE, AND LEFT ALL THE BIG ISSUES TO HER
  • 00:04:15.080 --> 00:04:18.050
  • HUSBAND, SO WHEN HE DIED SHE REALLY WAS AT A LOSS.
  • 00:04:18.070 --> 00:04:22.110
  • - AND IT WAS THAT DESPITE THE SITUATION IN
  • 00:04:22.130 --> 00:04:24.250
  • ARGENTINA AND DESPITE THE FACT THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY
  • 00:04:24.270 --> 00:04:28.120
  • MONEY, HIS MOTHER ENCOURAGED HIM TO BECOME
  • 00:04:28.140 --> 00:04:32.020
  • AN EVANGELIST.
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:34.170
  • - SHE DEFINITELY FELT THAT HE HAD A GIFT FOR
  • 00:04:34.190 --> 00:04:36.170
  • PROCLAIMING THE GOSPEL AND THAT HE SHOULD DO IT.
  • 00:04:36.190 --> 00:04:43.200
  • - AND ONE DAY I SAID TO HER, MOM, I'M WAITING
  • 00:04:43.220 --> 00:04:45.270
  • FOR THE CALL.
  • 00:04:45.290 --> 00:04:47.250
  • AND SHE GOT REALLY UPSET ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:04:47.270 --> 00:04:50.010
  • AND SHE SAID SOMETHING THAT REALLY STUCK WITH ME
  • 00:04:50.030 --> 00:04:52.080
  • AND GOT ME TO MAKE THE DECISION I WILL GIVE MY
  • 00:04:52.100 --> 00:04:54.280
  • LIFE TO PREACHING THE GOSPEL AND NOTHING ELSE.
  • 00:04:55.000 --> 00:04:57.170
  • SHE SAID, THE CALL, THE CALL, SHE SAID, THE CALL
  • 00:04:57.190 --> 00:05:01.030
  • WAS GIVEN 2.000 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:05:01.050 --> 00:05:03.210
  • THE LORD WANTS THE ANSWER, NOT THE CALL. HA.
  • 00:05:03.230 --> 00:05:06.020
  • SO THAT SHUT ME UP.
  • 00:05:06.040 --> 00:05:08.050
  • SO SHE WAS A GREAT WOMAN OF FAITH, MY MOM, AND THE
  • 00:05:08.070 --> 00:05:11.130
  • DEATH OF MY DAD SORT OF BROUGHT IT ALL TOGETHER.
  • 00:05:11.150 --> 00:05:14.290
  • - AS A YOUNG MAN, LUIS STARTED TO STRAY AWAY
  • 00:05:15.010 --> 00:05:21.150
  • FROM SPIRITUAL THINGS AND DRIFT INTO A LIFE OF
  • 00:05:21.170 --> 00:05:24.070
  • PARTIES AND DANCES WITH HIS FRIENDS.
  • 00:05:24.090 --> 00:05:26.260
  • STRUGGLING WITH HIS WALK WITH GOD, A TURNING POINT
  • 00:05:26.280 --> 00:05:29.250
  • CAME WHEN HE WAS INVITED TO GO TO CARNIVAL, A
  • 00:05:29.270 --> 00:05:32.030
  • WEEKEND LONG DANCE PARTY.
  • 00:05:32.050 --> 00:05:35.220
  • - AND I THOUGHT YOU KNOW, I'VE GOT TO GET
  • 00:05:35.240 --> 00:05:37.220
  • BACK TO THE LORD.
  • 00:05:37.240 --> 00:05:39.200
  • IF I GO TO THESE DANCES WITH ALL THE DRINKING,
  • 00:05:39.220 --> 00:05:41.130
  • FOOLING AROUND, WHO KNOWS WHAT'S GOING TO
  • 00:05:41.150 --> 00:05:42.250
  • HAPPEN NOW.
  • 00:05:42.270 --> 00:05:44.120
  • SO I DECIDED, I PRAYED THAT NIGHT.
  • 00:05:44.140 --> 00:05:47.200
  • I WAS ALONE IN MY GRANDMA'S HOME, AND I
  • 00:05:47.220 --> 00:05:51.100
  • PULLED OUT A BIBLE FROM SOMEWHERE, PUT IT NEXT TO
  • 00:05:51.120 --> 00:05:52.260
  • MY NIGHT TABLE.
  • 00:05:52.280 --> 00:05:54.180
  • I SAID LORD, PLEASE GET ME OUT OF GOING TO
  • 00:05:54.200 --> 00:05:56.070
  • THESE DANCES.
  • 00:05:56.090 --> 00:05:58.100
  • SO THE NEXT MORNING I WOKE UP AND I FELT
  • 00:05:58.120 --> 00:06:00.150
  • SOMETHING IN MY MOUTH THAT WASN'T NORMAL.
  • 00:06:00.170 --> 00:06:03.080
  • I WENT TO THE MIRROR, AND MY MOUTH WAS SWOLLEN LIKE
  • 00:06:03.100 --> 00:06:05.200
  • I HAD A TENNIS BALL INSIDE IT.
  • 00:06:05.220 --> 00:06:08.100
  • AND I THOUGHT THAT'S IT, THE LORD HAS ANSWERED
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:10.050
  • MY PRAYER.
  • 00:06:10.070 --> 00:06:12.000
  • NOW I CAN SAY, WHOSE GOING TO GO TO A DANCE
  • 00:06:12.020 --> 00:06:14.030
  • WITH A FOUL LOOKING MOUTH?
  • 00:06:14.050 --> 00:06:15.290
  • I CALLED UP MY BUDDIES AND I SAID GUYS, I'M NOT
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:18.060
  • COME TO GO THE DANCE.
  • 00:06:18.080 --> 00:06:19.200
  • OH, YOU GOTTA COME.
  • 00:06:19.220 --> 00:06:21.010
  • THEY CAME OVER, AND I COVERED MY FACE.
  • 00:06:21.030 --> 00:06:22.150
  • AND I SAID, I CAN'T GO.
  • 00:06:22.170 --> 00:06:24.060
  • MY FACE IS HURTING.
  • 00:06:24.080 --> 00:06:26.030
  • AND I WAS A COWERED TO TELL THEM I DIDN'T REALLY
  • 00:06:26.050 --> 00:06:27.170
  • WANT TO GO, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:06:27.190 --> 00:06:29.120
  • SO THEY LOOKED UP AND WHEN THEY SAW MY FACE,
  • 00:06:29.140 --> 00:06:31.180
  • WELL, THE SWELLING WILL GO AWAY TOMORROW.
  • 00:06:31.200 --> 00:06:33.180
  • AND I SAID, NO, I'M NOT GOING.
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:35.160
  • I'M DETERMINED.
  • 00:06:35.180 --> 00:06:36.210
  • THIS IS IT.
  • 00:06:36.230 --> 00:06:38.010
  • I'M NOT COMING, AND TO ME THAT WAS A BIG DECISION.
  • 00:06:38.030 --> 00:06:40.080
  • - SOON AFTER, LUIS WAS LISTENING TO A RADIO
  • 00:06:40.100 --> 00:06:42.220
  • PROGRAM THAT GAVE HIM THE INSPIRATION HE NEEDED TO
  • 00:06:42.240 --> 00:06:45.110
  • GET HIS LIFE BACK ON TRACK.
  • 00:06:45.130 --> 00:06:47.240
  • LITTLE DID HE KNOW THAT HE WAS ABOUT TO BEGIN THE
  • 00:06:47.260 --> 00:06:50.180
  • JOURNEY THAT WOULD FULFILL HIS CALLING.
  • 00:06:50.200 --> 00:06:53.250
  • - I DIDN'T KNOW BILLY GRAHAM FROM ADAM
  • 00:06:53.270 --> 00:06:55.140
  • AT THAT POINT.
  • 00:06:55.160 --> 00:06:56.210
  • I'D HEARD OF HIM BECAUSE I HEARD HIM ON SHORT WAVE
  • 00:06:56.230 --> 00:06:58.280
  • RADIO ONCE AND HIS MESSAGE, I CAN REMEMBER,
  • 00:06:59.000 --> 00:07:01.240
  • I JUST PICKED IT UP.
  • 00:07:01.260 --> 00:07:03.250
  • HIS DYNAMIC VOICE THAT HE HAD, HE KNEW HE HAD SOME
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:06.180
  • POWER THAT MANY OTHER PREACHERS DIDN'T HAVE.
  • 00:07:06.200 --> 00:07:09.130
  • - BILLY GRAHAM: THE QUESTION TONIGHT IS, CAN
  • 00:07:09.150 --> 00:07:12.220
  • A MAN'S HEART BE PERMANENTLY CHANGED?
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:16.070
  • - HE WAS COMING TO THE END OF HIS MESSAGE, AND
  • 00:07:16.090 --> 00:07:18.190
  • HE ALWAYS ENDED UP WITH AN INVITATION, WILL YOU
  • 00:07:18.210 --> 00:07:20.090
  • RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:07:20.110 --> 00:07:22.290
  • AND I FELT I'VE GOT TO SHAPE UP.
  • 00:07:23.010 --> 00:07:25.030
  • I'VE GOT TO WALK WITH GOD.
  • 00:07:25.050 --> 00:07:27.170
  • I'M COMING HOME.
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:29.070
  • I REALLY WANT TO BE A SERVANT OF GOD.
  • 00:07:29.090 --> 00:07:32.150
  • AND I SAID LORD, I COMMIT MY LIFE TO YOU.
  • 00:07:32.170 --> 00:07:34.210
  • SOMEDAY USE ME ON THE RADIO TO BLESS OTHER
  • 00:07:34.230 --> 00:07:38.230
  • PEOPLE LIKE THIS GUY JUST BLESSED ME.
  • 00:07:38.250 --> 00:07:41.180
  • AND WE WENT ON FOR 60 YEARS AT LEAST ON THE
  • 00:07:41.200 --> 00:07:44.110
  • RADIO, AND THE LORD REALLY USED IT IN A BIG WAY.
  • 00:07:44.130 --> 00:07:48.240
  • SO THAT WAS A BIG IMPACT ON MY LIFE, YEAH.
  • 00:07:48.260 --> 00:07:52.010
  • - LUIS BEGAN HIS MINISTRY WITH
  • 00:07:52.030 --> 00:07:54.190
  • EVANGELISTIC STREET MEETINGS AND
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:07:57.070
  • OPPORTUNITIES TO TEACH YOUNG PEOPLE IN
  • 00:07:57.090 --> 00:07:59.040
  • SURROUNDING CHURCHES.
  • 00:07:59.060 --> 00:08:02.010
  • - THE FIRST TIME THEY SET ME UP TO SPEAK AS A
  • 00:08:02.030 --> 00:08:04.120
  • YOUNG GUY TO THE YOUTH OF THE CHURCH, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:08:04.140 --> 00:08:07.100
  • I WAS SO NERVOUS.
  • 00:08:07.120 --> 00:08:09.200
  • I THOUGHT THAT I HAD A MESSAGE FOR 40 MINUTES,
  • 00:08:09.220 --> 00:08:12.130
  • AND I OPENED UP, READ THE PASSAGE, AND IN TEN
  • 00:08:12.150 --> 00:08:14.260
  • MINUTES I WAS THROUGH.
  • 00:08:14.280 --> 00:08:16.240
  • I THOUGHT OH, MY GOSH.
  • 00:08:16.260 --> 00:08:18.200
  • SHE EXPECTED A 30 TO 40 MINUTE MESSAGE, AND IN
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:21.060
  • TEN MINUTES I RUN OUT OF STUFF TO SAY.
  • 00:08:21.080 --> 00:08:23.190
  • SO FROM THEN ON I BEGAN TO FEEL I'M GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:08:23.210 --> 00:08:27.110
  • SO MANY NOTES THAT I'LL HAVE OVERKILL HERE.
  • 00:08:27.130 --> 00:08:29.270
  • ALL MY LIFE THE ONLY THING I KNEW THAT I
  • 00:08:29.290 --> 00:08:32.250
  • ENJOYED AND LOVED AND WAS EXCITING WAS EVANGELISM,
  • 00:08:32.270 --> 00:08:36.230
  • EVANGELISM, THE MORE PEOPLE YOU CAN REACH, THE
  • 00:08:36.250 --> 00:08:38.270
  • MORE PEOPLE ARE SAVED, THE MORE TESTIMONIES
  • 00:08:38.290 --> 00:08:40.110
  • YOU HEAR.
  • 00:08:40.130 --> 00:08:41.250
  • THAT'S LIFE.
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:43.240
  • - LUIS MET TWO MISSIONARIES, KEITH

  • BENSON AND ED MURPHY WHO CAME TO ARGENTINA TO
  • 00:08:46.040 --> 00:08:48.040
  • PLANT CHURCHES IN AREAS THAT HAD NO GOSPEL.
  • 00:08:48.060 --> 00:08:50.250
  • THEY ENLISTED LUIS TO JOIN THEIR TEAM AS A
  • 00:08:50.270 --> 00:08:53.170

  • 00:08:53.190 --> 00:08:56.110
  • EFFORT IN THE SMALL TOWN OF CATIVO.
  • 00:08:56.130 --> 00:09:00.100
  • - SO I FINISHED MY MESSAGE.
  • 00:09:00.120 --> 00:09:01.170
  • I SAID NOW, I'M GOING TO ASK ALL OF YOU TO BOW
  • 00:09:01.190 --> 00:09:04.020
  • YOUR HEADS.
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:05.210
  • I'M GOING TO LEAD YOU IN A PRAYER.
  • 00:09:05.230 --> 00:09:07.050
  • IF YOU WANT TO KNOW YOU'RE FORGIVEN AND YOU
  • 00:09:07.070 --> 00:09:08.190
  • HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, YOU'RE GOING TO HEAVEN WHEN YOU
  • 00:09:08.210 --> 00:09:10.210
  • DIE, YOU RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT, YOU BECOME A
  • 00:09:10.230 --> 00:09:12.220
  • CHILD OF GOD, PRAY WITH ME THIS PRAYER.
  • 00:09:12.240 --> 00:09:15.150
  • SO I LED THEM PHRASE BY PHRASE, AND I COULD HEAR
  • 00:09:15.170 --> 00:09:17.290
  • A NUMBER OF THEM PRAYING.
  • 00:09:18.010 --> 00:09:20.070
  • SO WHEN I FINISHED, I SAID OKAY, HOW MANY OF
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:23.160
  • YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER AND REALLY RECEIVED CHRIST?
  • 00:09:23.180 --> 00:09:25.130
  • YOU KNOW, 32, I COUNTED THEM, 32 RAISED THEIR
  • 00:09:25.150 --> 00:09:29.030
  • HAND, AND I THOUGHT OH, MAN.
  • 00:09:29.050 --> 00:09:31.290
  • THEY DIDN'T GET IT.
  • 00:09:32.010 --> 00:09:33.120
  • IT'S TOO MANY.
  • 00:09:33.140 --> 00:09:35.020
  • SO I SAID LISTEN, LET ME EXPLAIN IT AGAIN.
  • 00:09:35.040 --> 00:09:37.040
  • IT TOOK ABOUT A HALF HOUR TO EXPLAIN AGAIN WHAT IS
  • 00:09:37.060 --> 00:09:40.070
  • THE ASSURANCE OF ETERNAL LIFE.
  • 00:09:40.090 --> 00:09:42.000
  • SO THEN I SAID OKAY, NOW I'M GOING TO LEAD YOU IN
  • 00:09:42.020 --> 00:09:45.000
  • A PRAYER, AND THERE WAS 37 PEOPLE THAT I HAD.
  • 00:09:45.020 --> 00:09:48.100
  • SO I THOUGHT THIS IS OF THE LORD.
  • 00:09:48.120 --> 00:09:50.090
  • AND THEN WE DECIDED WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DO WHAT
  • 00:09:50.110 --> 00:09:52.160
  • PAUL DID, APPOINT ELDERS BECAUSE WE'RE LEAVING
  • 00:09:52.180 --> 00:09:54.150
  • TOWN, AND CATIVO BECAME -- THEY PLANTED FIVE
  • 00:09:54.170 --> 00:09:56.280
  • CHURCHES IN THE FOLLOWING YEARS.
  • 00:09:57.000 --> 00:09:59.250
  • - IN LATE 1958, LUIS MET A PASTOR FROM
  • 00:09:59.270 --> 00:10:01.230

  • 00:10:01.250 --> 00:10:07.120
  • TO INTRODUCE HIMSELF.
  • 00:10:07.140 --> 00:10:09.040
  • THE PASTOR BEGAN ASKING HIM QUESTIONS.
  • 00:10:09.060 --> 00:10:10.240
  • - WHAT'S YOUR FUTURE?
  • 00:10:10.260 --> 00:10:11.230
  • WHAT ARE YOUR DREAMS?
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:13.050
  • WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?
  • 00:10:13.070 --> 00:10:14.140
  • HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT COMING TO THE US?
  • 00:10:14.160 --> 00:10:15.210
  • I SAID, OH I'D LIKE TO SOMEDAY BUT I'M NOT SURE
  • 00:10:15.230 --> 00:10:16.280
  • IF I EVER CAN.
  • 00:10:17.000 --> 00:10:18.190
  • I'VE GOT TO SUPPORT MY MOM AND MY SISTERS.
  • 00:10:18.210 --> 00:10:21.120
  • HE SAID WELL, THE LORD CAN DO SOMETHING.
  • 00:10:21.140 --> 00:10:24.090
  • YOU KNOW.
  • 00:10:24.110 --> 00:10:25.290
  • I HAD NO IDEA THAT HE BELONGED TO THE BOARD OF
  • 00:10:26.010 --> 00:10:27.280
  • A FOUNDATION.
  • 00:10:28.000 --> 00:10:29.200
  • - RAY STEAD MAN, HE WAS A MEMBER OF THE BOARD OF
  • 00:10:29.220 --> 00:10:31.200
  • DIRECTORS OF OVERSEAS CRUSADES.
  • 00:10:31.220 --> 00:10:33.130
  • SO HE MADE IN THOSE DAYS OC, OVERSEAS CRUSADE, HAD
  • 00:10:33.150 --> 00:10:38.070
  • A FIELD IN ARGENTINA, SO THEY HAD FIELD
  • 00:10:38.090 --> 00:10:41.180
  • MISSIONARIES DOWN THERE.
  • 00:10:41.200 --> 00:10:48.070
  • AND LUIS STARTED WORKING WITH SOME OF THE THOSE
  • 00:10:48.090 --> 00:10:50.180
  • FIELD MISSIONARIES.
  • 00:10:50.200 --> 00:10:52.210
  • SO RAY WENT DOWN TO VISIT THEM AND THAT'S HOW HE
  • 00:10:52.230 --> 00:10:55.130
  • GOT TO KNOW LUIS WHILE HE WAS DOWN THERE.
  • 00:10:55.150 --> 00:10:57.200
  • AND THEN THEY PREACHED SOMEWHAT TOGETHER, THEY
  • 00:10:57.220 --> 00:10:59.190
  • GOT TO KNOW EACH OTHER, AND RAY HAD AN INNATE
  • 00:10:59.210 --> 00:11:02.190
  • ABILITY TO SEE POTENTIAL IN SOMEONE.
  • 00:11:02.210 --> 00:11:04.060
  • - HE WAS VERY FUNNY, AND HE COULD KIND OF TEACH
  • 00:11:04.080 --> 00:11:06.060
  • YOU A LESSON HUMOROUSLY SO AFTER YOU THOUGHT
  • 00:11:06.080 --> 00:11:08.200
  • ABOUT IT YOU THOUGHT WAIT A MINUTE, HE WAS GIVING
  • 00:11:08.220 --> 00:11:10.190
  • ME SORT OF A LECTURE ABOUT SOMETHING.
  • 00:11:10.210 --> 00:11:14.150
  • - HE HAD A KNACK FOR SPOTTING YOUNG MEN WHO
  • 00:11:14.170 --> 00:11:17.160
  • HAD A REAL GIFT OF LEADERSHIP, GIFT OF
  • 00:11:17.180 --> 00:11:21.140
  • EVANGELISM, WHO RAY SAW GREAT POTENTIAL IN THEM.
  • 00:11:21.160 --> 00:11:26.080
  • - AND HE SAID I THINK YOU SHOULD COME TO THE US.
  • 00:11:26.100 --> 00:11:30.090
  • YOU COULD STUDY THE BIBLE AND THEOLOGY AND SO ON.
  • 00:11:30.110 --> 00:11:33.120
  • I THOUGHT WELL, THIS IS EXCITING.
  • 00:11:33.140 --> 00:11:35.280
  • I SHOWED IT TO MY MOM AND MY MOM SAID OH, THIS IS
  • 00:11:36.000 --> 00:11:38.030
  • THE LORD'S OPENING.
  • 00:11:38.050 --> 00:11:39.120
  • THIS IS OF THE LORD.
  • 00:11:39.140 --> 00:11:40.280
  • I SAID, BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU AND THE GIRLS?
  • 00:11:41.000 --> 00:11:42.130
  • THE LORD WILL PROVIDE.
  • 00:11:42.150 --> 00:11:43.210
  • THAT WAS HER MAIN ANSWER.
  • 00:11:43.230 --> 00:11:45.000
  • EVENTUALLY THEN I CAME TO THE US AND IT
  • 00:11:45.020 --> 00:11:46.100
  • CHANGED EVERYTHING.
  • 00:11:46.120 --> 00:11:47.200
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:11:47.220 --> 00:11:53.000
  • - LUIS MOVED TO PORTLAND, OREGON AND
  • 00:11:53.020 --> 00:11:55.050
  • ATTENDED MULTNOMAH SEMINARY.
  • 00:11:55.070 --> 00:11:57.270
  • WHILE TAKING A GRADUATE COURSE IN BIBLICAL
  • 00:11:57.290 --> 00:12:00.130
  • STUDIES, A YOUNG LADY CAUGHT HIS EYE AND HER
  • 00:12:00.150 --> 00:12:02.290
  • NAME WAS PATRICIA SCOFIELD.
  • 00:12:03.010 --> 00:12:08.260
  • - SO WE WERE IN THE SAME -- TOOK SEVERAL OF THE SAME
  • 00:12:08.280 --> 00:12:11.120
  • COURSES, AND THEN WE HAD, WHAT, PARTIES AND SO ON.
  • 00:12:11.140 --> 00:12:14.290
  • - THEY WERE 48 OF US.
  • 00:12:15.010 --> 00:12:17.030
  • - 48, AND THERE WAS ONLY FIVE GUYS IN THE 48.
  • 00:12:17.050 --> 00:12:21.130
  • - SINGLE GUYS.
  • 00:12:21.150 --> 00:12:23.040
  • - SINGLE.
  • 00:12:23.060 --> 00:12:24.190
  • - SOME WERE MARRIED.
  • 00:12:24.210 --> 00:12:25.240
  • - THERE WERE SOME MARRIED ONES, RIGHT?
  • 00:12:25.260 --> 00:12:27.090
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:12:27.110 --> 00:12:28.130
  • - I KIND OF LIKED HER RIGHT AWAY.
  • 00:12:28.150 --> 00:12:29.180
  • SHE WAS LOUD AND HUMOROUS, AND SHE PLAYED
  • 00:12:29.200 --> 00:12:31.240
  • THE PIANO.
  • 00:12:31.260 --> 00:12:32.290
  • I THOUGHT ANY GOOD EVANGELIST'S WIFE SHOULD
  • 00:12:33.010 --> 00:12:34.190
  • PLAY THE PIANO.
  • 00:12:34.210 --> 00:12:36.030
  • - I THOUGHT WHEN PEOPLE WOULD SAY OH, HE SEEMS TO
  • 00:12:36.050 --> 00:12:38.210
  • BE EVERYWHERE YOU ARE HE'S KIND OF AROUND
  • 00:12:38.230 --> 00:12:42.020
  • SOMEWHERE, AND I SAID WELL, THAT'S JUST THE
  • 00:12:42.040 --> 00:12:44.090
  • WAY HE IS.
  • 00:12:44.110 --> 00:12:45.260
  • HE'S REALLY FRIENDLY WHICH IS TRUE.
  • 00:12:45.280 --> 00:12:48.020
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:12:48.040 --> 00:12:50.050
  • SO WE STARTED, YOU KNOW, DATING AS THE AMERICANS SAY.
  • 00:12:50.070 --> 00:12:52.160
  • SO WE STARTED, YOU KNOW, DATING AS THE AMERICANS
  • 00:12:52.180 --> 00:12:54.090
  • IT'S ALWAYS IN GROUPS, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:12:54.110 --> 00:12:56.270
  • - IT WAS JUST A LOT OF TALK TO WHERE WE REALIZED
  • 00:12:56.290 --> 00:12:59.090
  • WE HAD A LOT IN COMMON.
  • 00:12:59.110 --> 00:13:02.080
  • - SO WE DATED THERE, WENT TO PARTIES MOSTLY.
  • 00:13:02.100 --> 00:13:05.260
  • AND THEN I THOUGHT NO, I WANT TO MARRY THIS WOMAN.
  • 00:13:05.280 --> 00:13:09.140
  • - WE STARTED TALKING ABOUT WHERE WE WERE GOING
  • 00:13:09.160 --> 00:13:12.090
  • TO SPEND THE REST OF OUR LIVES, AND THEN, YOU
  • 00:13:12.110 --> 00:13:15.070
  • KNOW, HE JUST KIND OF WENT AROUND THE BACK WAY
  • 00:13:15.090 --> 00:13:18.180
  • TO GET INTO THE SUBJECT.
  • 00:13:18.200 --> 00:13:21.270
  • - SO I NEVER ASKED IF SHE'D MARRY ME.
  • 00:13:21.290 --> 00:13:24.050
  • I SAID, WOULD YOU WILLING TO GO TO ARGENTINA WITH
  • 00:13:24.070 --> 00:13:26.170
  • ME WHICH IS A STUPID WAY OF DECLARING YOUR LOVE
  • 00:13:26.190 --> 00:13:29.180
  • TO SOMEONE.
  • 00:13:29.200 --> 00:13:31.080
  • AND SHE SAID YES.
  • 00:13:31.100 --> 00:13:32.260
  • AND WE WERE NOT KIDS.
  • 00:13:32.280 --> 00:13:34.020
  • I WAS 25.
  • 00:13:34.050 --> 00:13:35.200
  • SHE WAS 23.
  • 00:13:35.220 --> 00:13:37.190
  • SO ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE RULES FOR THE FRESHMEN
  • 00:13:37.210 --> 00:13:39.230
  • AND EARLY ON WE FIGURED HEY, WE'RE MATURE.
  • 00:13:39.250 --> 00:13:43.070
  • - WE BROKE THE RULES.
  • 00:13:43.090 --> 00:13:45.140
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:13:45.160 --> 00:13:47.060
  • YOU KNOW, WE WERE BOTH COMMITTED TO THE LORD, WE
  • 00:13:47.080 --> 00:13:50.120
  • LOVED EACH OTHER, AND HAD 4 BOYS, TWINS AND 2 MORE.
  • 00:13:50.140 --> 00:13:54.080
  • I WANTED 7, BUT SHE SAID YOU HAVE THE OTHER 3.
  • 00:13:54.100 --> 00:13:57.060
  • YOU KNOW, SO WE NEVER DID HAVE THEM.
  • 00:13:57.080 --> 00:14:00.180
  • - THEY'RE BOTH REALISTIC.
  • 00:14:00.200 --> 00:14:02.170
  • THEY HAVE BOTH REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS OF
  • 00:14:02.190 --> 00:14:04.220
  • THEMSELVES, REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS FOR THEIR
  • 00:14:04.240 --> 00:14:09.030
  • MARRIAGE, AND THE THING THAT'S ALWAYS STRUCK ME
  • 00:14:09.050 --> 00:14:12.180
  • ABOUT THE TWO OF THEM IS WHAT AN AMAZING TEAM
  • 00:14:12.200 --> 00:14:15.040
  • THEY ARE.
  • 00:14:15.060 --> 00:14:17.040
  • - SHE IS VERY INTELLIGENT, AND SO SHE
  • 00:14:17.060 --> 00:14:19.070
  • COULD HELP HIM EVEN WHEN HE WAS PREACHING.
  • 00:14:19.090 --> 00:14:22.080
  • SHE HAD A BIBLICAL MIND.
  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:25.010
  • THEY HAD A THEOLOGICAL MIND, SHE COULD GIVE HIM
  • 00:14:25.030 --> 00:14:27.050
  • SUGGESTIONS REGARDING HIS OWN MESSAGES.
  • 00:14:27.070 --> 00:14:29.170
  • - AFTER THEY GOT MARRIED, THEY WENT OFF AS
  • 00:14:29.190 --> 00:14:31.200
  • MISSIONARIES AS A MISSIONARY COUPLE AS A
  • 00:14:31.220 --> 00:14:33.270
  • TEAM, SO THAT I HAVE HAD A VERY STRONG MARRIAGE,
  • 00:14:33.290 --> 00:14:38.040
  • AND I THINK THEY'VE HELPED A LOT OF OTHER
  • 00:14:38.060 --> 00:14:40.070
  • YOUNG COUPLES.
  • 00:14:40.090 --> 00:14:42.060
  • - FROM THE GET GO WE WERE AWARE THAT WE'D
  • 00:14:42.080 --> 00:14:43.270
  • BE SEPARATED.
  • 00:14:43.290 --> 00:14:45.070
  • IT GOT TO BE HARDER THAN WE REALIZED I THINK.
  • 00:14:45.090 --> 00:14:48.020
  • YOU DON'T SEE EVERYTHING AHEAD OF HIM, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:14:48.040 --> 00:14:50.170
  • BUT ALL OF YOUR LIFE AGAIN AND AGAIN YOU'D BE
  • 00:14:50.190 --> 00:14:53.240
  • FLYING AWAY, AND SHE'D BE STAYING HOME.
  • 00:14:53.260 --> 00:14:57.050
  • - WHEN WE WERE LIVING OVERSEAS, THAT'S WHEN I
  • 00:14:57.070 --> 00:15:00.110
  • RECALL FEELING REALLY LONELY BECAUSE YOU'RE
  • 00:15:00.130 --> 00:15:04.170
  • STRUGGLING TO ADJUST AND ADAPT TO A CULTURE THAT
  • 00:15:04.190 --> 00:15:12.130
  • IS DIFFICULT AT TIMES, AND IT'S A PROCESS.
  • 00:15:12.150 --> 00:15:19.220
  • - ONE DAY I COUNTED HOW MANY YEARS WE WERE
  • 00:15:19.240 --> 00:15:22.210
  • SEPARATED FROM EACH OTHER BECAUSE I WAS ON THE ROAD.
  • 00:15:22.230 --> 00:15:27.100
  • SHE CAME UP WITH 17 YEARS, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:15:27.120 --> 00:15:30.000
  • OUT OF 57 NOW.
  • 00:15:30.020 --> 00:15:32.020
  • IT'S A LONG TIME.
  • 00:15:32.040 --> 00:15:33.230
  • - ONE PERIOD SOMEWHERE IN MEXICO CITY
  • 00:15:33.250 --> 00:15:39.020
  • WE HAD 4 CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 5 OR 6.
  • 00:15:39.040 --> 00:15:41.290
  • NO MATTER HOW YOU CUT THAT, THAT'S STRESSFUL,
  • 00:15:42.010 --> 00:15:45.100
  • AND THAT'S HOW I HELPED THE MINISTRY IS BY
  • 00:15:45.120 --> 00:15:49.140
  • KEEPING A TIGHT SHIP AT HOME.
  • 00:15:49.160 --> 00:15:52.050
  • - PAT DEVOTED HERSELF TO REALLY BRING UP THE BOYS.
  • 00:15:52.070 --> 00:15:55.080
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S HAD A GOOD EFFECT BECAUSE THEY LOVE
  • 00:15:55.100 --> 00:15:58.090
  • THE LORD, SERVE THE LORD, AND HER DEVOTING HERSELF
  • 00:15:58.110 --> 00:16:02.160
  • WHILE I HAD TO TRAVEL.
  • 00:16:02.180 --> 00:16:04.290
  • I MEAN, YOU COULDN'T BE AN EVANGELIST AND STAY HOME.
  • 00:16:05.010 --> 00:16:07.280
  • EITHER ONE OR THE OTHER.

  • CROWD OF HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:24:53.190 --> 00:24:56.050
  • - LUIS: MANY OF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH YOUR OWN WAR.
  • 00:24:56.070 --> 00:24:58.270
  • IT'S A SPIRITUAL WAR BETWEEN GOD AND SATAN,
  • 00:24:58.290 --> 00:25:03.000
  • BETWEEN LIGHT AND DARKNESS.
  • 00:25:03.020 --> 00:25:05.100
  • LUIS: ONE OF OUR SECRET PRAYERS WAS THAT WE WOULD
  • 00:25:05.120 --> 00:25:07.070
  • BE ABLE TO INFLUENCE PRESIDENTS, MILITARY
  • 00:25:07.090 --> 00:25:10.110
  • PERSONNEL, INCLUDING DICTATORS, FOR THE GOOD
  • 00:25:10.130 --> 00:25:13.220
  • TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE, TO MAKE THEM SEE THE NATION
  • 00:25:13.240 --> 00:25:17.240
  • AND THE POSITION OF GOD GAVE THEM AS FROM GOD.
  • 00:25:17.260 --> 00:25:20.220
  • AND I LEARNED WATCHING BILLY GRAHAM.
  • 00:25:20.240 --> 00:25:22.190
  • I LEARNED TO JUST BE UNASHAMED, RESPECTFUL,
  • 00:25:22.210 --> 00:25:26.180
  • HUMILITY, JUST SERVE THE PEOPLE, BUT AT THE SAME
  • 00:25:26.200 --> 00:25:30.170
  • TIME YOU'RE IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.
  • 00:25:30.190 --> 00:25:32.130
  • YOU'RE NOT THERE JUST AS A LITTLE WEASEL FROM
  • 00:25:32.150 --> 00:25:34.180
  • ARGENTINA TRYING TO CONVINCE THIS GUY TO CHANGE.
  • 00:25:34.200 --> 00:25:37.220
  • YOU'RE SPEAKING IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:25:37.240 --> 00:25:40.030
  • - HIS AMAZING PASSION AND HEART FOR THE LOST,
  • 00:25:40.050 --> 00:25:44.190
  • IT WOULD BE GREAT IF MORE CHRISTIANS HAD THAT
  • 00:25:44.210 --> 00:25:46.110
  • SAME PASSION AND HEART.
  • 00:25:46.130 --> 00:25:48.050
  • IT PAINS HIM DEEPLY TO THINK ANYBODY MIGHT NOT
  • 00:25:48.070 --> 00:25:51.100
  • BE ABLE TO SPEND ETERNITY IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:25:51.120 --> 00:25:55.180
  • - LUIS: I REMEMBER ONE COUNTRY WE HAD A
  • 00:25:57.080 --> 00:25:59.150
  • PRESIDENTIAL PRAYER BREAKFAST.
  • 00:25:59.170 --> 00:26:00.250
  • I SAID TO THE PRESIDENT, SIR, WHEN THE BREAKFAST
  • 00:26:00.270 --> 00:26:02.190
  • IS OVER, CAN I SEE YOU PRIVATELY WITH NOBODY
  • 00:26:02.210 --> 00:26:05.040
  • ELSE THERE, NOT ON MY TEAM, NONE OF YOUR GUYS.
  • 00:26:05.060 --> 00:26:07.230
  • HE SAID OKAY.
  • 00:26:07.250 --> 00:26:09.070
  • SO I GOT IN THERE AND I SAID TO HIM, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:26:09.090 --> 00:26:12.060
  • I USED THE FOUR LAWS: GOD LOVES YOU AND HAS A
  • 00:26:12.080 --> 00:26:14.180
  • WONDERFUL PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE, BUT YOU'VE GOT TO
  • 00:26:14.200 --> 00:26:17.250
  • KNOW CHRIST, ETC. AND HE SAID TO ME, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:26:17.270 --> 00:26:21.040
  • GOD CAN'T LOVE ME.
  • 00:26:21.060 --> 00:26:23.180
  • HE SAID BUT IF I TOLD YOU THE STUFF I'VE DONE AS A
  • 00:26:23.200 --> 00:26:26.110
  • MILITARY PERSON, YOU KNOW GOD COULDN'T LOVE ME FOR
  • 00:26:26.130 --> 00:26:29.220
  • NOTHING. I SAID SIR, GOD STILL LOVES YOU
  • 00:26:29.240 --> 00:26:32.210
  • IN SPITE OF YOUR SINS.
  • 00:26:32.230 --> 00:26:34.240
  • AND THE GUY FINALLY GOT ON HIS KNEES,
  • 00:26:34.260 --> 00:26:38.110
  • AND I LED HIM TO THE LORD.
  • 00:26:38.130 --> 00:26:41.000
  • - LUIS: TO ALL THOSE WHO RECEIVE HIM,
  • 00:26:42.260 --> 00:26:44.230
  • WHO BELIEVE IN HIS NAME,
  • 00:26:44.250 --> 00:26:46.150
  • HE GIVES YOU POWER TO BECOME A CHILD OF GOD.
  • 00:26:46.170 --> 00:26:49.210
  • WILL YOU RECEIVE HIM TONIGHT?
  • 00:26:49.230 --> 00:26:52.040
  • - HE USED TO LISTEN TO BILLY GRAHAM ALL THE

  • ENTIRE WORLD KEPT EXPANDING, EXPANDING.
  • 00:26:57.140 --> 00:27:00.130
  • WHEN WE WERE LIVING IN MEXICO, LUIS', I THOUGHT
  • 00:27:00.150 --> 00:27:04.080
  • LUIS' VISION WAS ONLY FOR LATIN AMERICA,
  • 00:27:04.100 --> 00:27:06.100
  • SPANISH SPEAKING WORLD, AND IT WASN'T.
  • 00:27:06.120 --> 00:27:09.230
  • - FRANKLIN GRAHAM: HE'S A MAN WHO REALLY DOESN'T NEED AN

  • CARRIED HIS BRIEFCASE, SOMETIMES DROVE THE CAR,
  • 00:28:15.110 --> 00:28:19.000

  • - GOD WANTS TO DEAL WITH YOUR SOUL TONIGHT.
  • 00:29:04.090 --> 00:29:09.260
  • JESUS CHRIST IS FOR TODAY.
  • 00:29:09.280 --> 00:29:13.150
  • - WE HAD A WOMAN'S LUNCHEON IN SINGAPORE
  • 00:29:13.170 --> 00:29:15.190
  • WHERE 5.000 WOMEN SHOWED UP, AND THE PARKING WAS
  • 00:29:15.210 --> 00:29:18.290
  • SO IMPOSSIBLE AND THE TRAFFIC SO BAD, PEOPLE--
  • 00:29:19.010 --> 00:29:21.290
  • THE WOMEN JUST PARKED THE CAR ANYWHERE AND
  • 00:29:22.010 --> 00:29:23.190
  • WALKED TO THE HOTEL.
  • 00:29:23.210 --> 00:29:25.080
  • THEN THE NEXT DAY THE PAPER SAID

  • 00:29:31.250 --> 00:29:33.240
  • MEETING GOD AND JESUS CHRIST WHO IS ALIVE TODAY.
  • 00:29:33.260 --> 00:29:38.160
  • THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN YOU AND I DIE, WE'LL GO
  • 00:29:38.180 --> 00:29:40.250
  • TO HEAVEN IF WE HAVE JESUS IN OUR HEART.
  • 00:29:40.270 --> 00:29:43.090
  • [SPEAKING SPANISH]
  • 00:29:43.110 --> 00:29:48.160
  • HE SAYS THIS FROM THE WORD OF GOD...
  • 00:29:48.180 --> 00:29:50.250
  • I HAVE LOVED YOU WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE.
  • 00:29:50.270 --> 00:29:55.140
  • GOD NOT ONLY FORGIVES YOU,
  • 00:29:55.160 --> 00:29:57.080
  • HE COMES TO LIVE WITHIN YOU.
  • 00:29:57.100 --> 00:29:59.070
  • JESUS SAID HE CALLS HIS OWN BY NAME.
  • 00:29:59.090 --> 00:30:03.290
  • JESUS CAME TO GIVE YOU LIFE.
  • 00:30:04.010 --> 00:30:07.040
  • - THEN IN 1980, WHILE LEADING A SIX WEEK
  • 00:30:08.180 --> 00:30:11.170
  • CAMPAIGN IN SCOTLAND, PAT ARRIVED TO SPEAK WITH LUIS.
  • 00:30:11.190 --> 00:30:15.180
  • - LUIS: SHE CAME TO GLASGOW THE LAST WEEKEND OF THE

  • FESTIVAL, I THINK, AND SHE SEEMED SOMBER,
  • 00:30:17.280 --> 00:30:21.050
  • AND I THOUGHT WHAT HAVE I DONE?
  • 00:30:21.070 --> 00:30:23.010
  • SHE'S MAD AT ME.
  • 00:30:23.030 --> 00:30:24.280
  • SO FINALLY THE LAST DAY OR TWO I SAID HEY BABE,

  • SHE SAID WELL, YEAH. SO TOUCH HERE.
  • 00:30:31.180 --> 00:30:34.090
  • SO I TOOK MY FINGER AND I TOUCHED.
  • 00:30:34.110 --> 00:30:36.100
  • THERE WAS A LUMP.
  • 00:30:36.120 --> 00:30:38.010
  • SHE SAYS I THINK THIS IS BAD.
  • 00:30:38.030 --> 00:30:40.000
  • SO I SAID OKAY, WE GO HOME MONDAY AND LET'S GO

  • STRAIGHT TO THE DOCTOR AND HAVE IT CHECKED OUT.
  • 00:30:43.080 --> 00:30:46.250
  • - I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:30:46.270 --> 00:30:48.120
  • YOU KNOW, I GUESS WE ALWAYS THINK THAT THINGS

  • LIKE THAT HAPPEN TO WEAK PEOPLE.
  • 00:30:51.080 --> 00:30:53.000
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT I THOUGHT, BUT I WAS
  • 00:30:53.020 --> 00:30:54.140
  • REALLY SURPRISED.
  • 00:30:54.160 --> 00:30:57.040
  • USUALLY YOU GET KIND OF A FEAR ABOUT, YOU FEEL
  • 00:30:57.060 --> 00:31:01.220
  • SOMETHING AND THINK I'VE GOT TO GET THAT CHECKED OUT
  • 00:31:01.240 --> 00:31:03.210
  • BUT I'M SURE IT'S FINE.
  • 00:31:03.230 --> 00:31:05.210
  • IN THIS CASE GET IT CHECKED OUT AND IT'S NOT FINE.
  • 00:31:05.230 --> 00:31:08.140
  • - SHE SAID TO ME AS WE WERE DRIVING HOME,
  • 00:31:08.160 --> 00:31:10.250
  • WHICH WASN'T FAR FROM OUR HOUSE, SHE SAID WELL
  • 00:31:10.270 --> 00:31:13.160
  • BABE THIS IS THE END.
  • 00:31:13.180 --> 00:31:15.210
  • SHE SAID BECAUSE THEY DISCOVERED CANCER.
  • 00:31:15.230 --> 00:31:18.210
  • SO I SAID I FELT IT MIGHT BE THE END TOO.
  • 00:31:18.230 --> 00:31:21.220
  • IN THOSE DAYS CANCER WAS CONSIDERED,
  • 00:31:21.240 --> 00:31:23.130
  • YOU'RE DONE. THAT'S IT.
  • 00:31:23.150 --> 00:31:24.180
  • - I PLANNED MY FUNERAL.
  • 00:31:24.200 --> 00:31:25.290
  • I WENT THE ROUTE THAT PROBABLY ALL PEOPLE DO.
  • 00:31:26.010 --> 00:31:30.190
  • NO, NOT ME.
  • 00:31:30.210 --> 00:31:32.050
  • - I SAID NO, NO, THE LORD'S GONNA KEEP YOU WELL.
  • 00:31:32.070 --> 00:31:34.170
  • THE BOYS, THEY NEED YOU, AND SO ON AND SO ON.
  • 00:31:34.190 --> 00:31:37.250
  • SO WHEN WE GOT TO THE HOUSE, THE BOYS WERE AT
  • 00:31:37.270 --> 00:31:40.060
  • SCHOOL, AND I WAS DOWN IN THE BASEMENT REALLY
  • 00:31:40.080 --> 00:31:42.010
  • CRYING AND THINKING ALL THE STUFF I SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:31:42.030 --> 00:31:44.050
  • DONE WITH HER, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:31:44.070 --> 00:31:46.050
  • AND SUDDENLY UPSTAIRS SHE'S PLAYING THE PIANO.
  • 00:31:46.070 --> 00:31:49.040
  • I HEAR THE PIANO.
  • 00:31:49.060 --> 00:31:50.130
  • AND AT FIRST I THOUGHT, OH MY GOSH, SHE JUST
  • 00:31:50.150 --> 00:31:52.210
  • FINDS OUT SHE'S GOT CANCER AND SHE SITS
  • 00:31:52.230 --> 00:31:54.280
  • ON THE PIANO SINGING.
  • 00:31:55.000 --> 00:31:56.220
  • AND THEN I THOUGHT WHAT AN AMAZING THING, A
  • 00:31:56.240 --> 00:31:59.110
  • CHRISTIAN CAN ACTUALLY DO THAT, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:31:59.130 --> 00:32:01.270
  • YOU KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING WHEN YOU DIE.
  • 00:32:01.290 --> 00:32:05.040
  • - PAT: OF COURSE LOOKING BACK NOW, I DID SURVIVE.
  • 00:32:05.060 --> 00:32:07.280
  • WELL THAT'S THE GRACE AND MERCY OF GOD THAT HE
  • 00:32:08.000 --> 00:32:13.080
  • CHOSE TO HEAL ME, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I HAD
  • 00:32:13.100 --> 00:32:19.090
  • FRIENDS WHO DID NOT.
  • 00:32:19.110 --> 00:32:21.200
  • AND HEAVEN IS OUR HOME AND THIS IS THE BATTLEGROUND.
  • 00:32:21.220 --> 00:32:26.110
  • THIS IS WHERE WE WORK OUT WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:32:26.130 --> 00:32:31.060
  • HERE FOR AND ULTIMATELY WE'RE ON OUR WAY.
  • 00:32:31.080 --> 00:32:38.070
  • - I'D LIKE TO TALK ABOUT WHAT I SEE THE BIBLE
  • 00:32:39.050 --> 00:32:41.070
  • TEACHES ABOUT HEAVEN, AND I'M A BELIEVER, CONFESS
  • 00:32:41.090 --> 00:32:44.050
  • IT WITH PEACE BECAUSE YOU REALLY LITERALLY ARE JUST
  • 00:32:44.070 --> 00:32:47.080
  • LEAVING THE BODY BEHIND AND GOING INTO THE
  • 00:32:47.100 --> 00:32:49.290
  • PRESENCE OF THE LORD FOREVER AND EVER.
  • 00:32:50.010 --> 00:32:52.170
  • AND IT'S PERFECT. GLORIOUS.
  • 00:32:52.190 --> 00:32:54.250
  • - WHILE PAT WAS RECOVERING FROM CANCER,
  • 00:32:54.270 --> 00:32:57.020
  • LUIS KEPT HIS TRAVEL SCHEDULE TO A MINIMUM
  • 00:32:57.040 --> 00:32:59.200
  • CONTINUING CAMPAIGNS IN THE U.S. AND OVERSEAS.
  • 00:32:59.220 --> 00:33:03.120

  • 00:33:21.090 --> 00:33:24.200
  • LET'S REACH EVERY SEGMENT OF SOCIETY WITH WAVE
  • 00:33:24.220 --> 00:33:27.230
  • AFTER WAVE OF GOSPEL PROCLAMATION.
  • 00:33:27.250 --> 00:33:31.030
  • - EVERY PLACE YOU WENT, ON THE TUBE, ON BILLBOARDS,
  • 00:33:31.050 --> 00:33:35.070
  • ON THE SIDES OF THOSE DOUBLE DECKER BUSSES,
  • 00:33:35.090 --> 00:33:37.140
  • YOU COULDN'T GET AWAY FROM LUIS.
  • 00:33:37.160 --> 00:33:39.150
  • HE WAS EVERYWHERE!
  • 00:33:39.170 --> 00:33:42.020
  • - PHASE ONE, WE DID WEEK LONG CRUSADES IN ABOUT
  • 00:33:42.040 --> 00:33:46.170
  • TEN DIFFERENT BURROS ALL OVER THE CITY.
  • 00:33:46.190 --> 00:33:49.270
  • IT MOBILIZED THE CHURCHES, AND I THINK IT
  • 00:33:49.290 --> 00:33:53.030
  • GAVE A VISION, ESPECIALLY YOUNG PEOPLE AS TO
  • 00:33:53.050 --> 00:33:55.230
  • WHAT WAS POSSIBLE.
  • 00:33:55.250 --> 00:33:57.170
  • PHASE TWO, WHEN WE WENT BACK IN '84, WE STAYED IN
  • 00:33:57.190 --> 00:34:02.240
  • ONE STADIUM, QUEENS PARK RANGERS FOOTBALL STADIUM
  • 00:34:02.260 --> 00:34:05.220
  • FOR GOLLY, SIX WEEKS.
  • 00:34:05.240 --> 00:34:08.110
  • NIGHT AFTER NIGHT OF JUST PREACHING THE GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:34:08.130 --> 00:34:12.170
  • - THE GRACE OF GOD THAT BRINGS SALVATION HAS
  • 00:34:12.190 --> 00:34:16.210
  • APPEARED TO ALL MAN, THE GRACE OF GOD.
  • 00:34:16.230 --> 00:34:21.010
  • - I WAS TEN YEARS OLD AND I GOT TAKEN ALONG
  • 00:34:21.030 --> 00:34:24.020
  • TO THE QPR SOCCER STADIUM IN LONDON.
  • 00:34:24.040 --> 00:34:28.170
  • I JUST REMEMBER HEARING THIS GUY GET UP TO SPEAK,
  • 00:34:28.190 --> 00:34:32.090
  • WHO I NOW KNOW IS LUIS PALAU, AND HE SPOKE SO
  • 00:34:32.110 --> 00:34:35.200
  • MUCH ABOUT THE FATHER HEART OF GOD AND
  • 00:34:35.220 --> 00:34:37.240
  • IT REALLY STRUCK ME.
  • 00:34:37.260 --> 00:34:39.110
  • - EVEN IF YOUR FATHER WAS A POOR EXAMPLE
  • 00:34:39.130 --> 00:34:42.040
  • AND YOUR MOTHER LEFT YOUR FAMILY,
  • 00:34:42.060 --> 00:34:44.250
  • YOU COME TO THE LIVING FATHER.
  • 00:34:44.270 --> 00:34:47.040
  • HE IS THE IDEAL FATHER.
  • 00:34:47.060 --> 00:34:49.080
  • HE IS A FATHER WHO LOVES YOU.
  • 00:34:49.100 --> 00:34:51.170
  • THE BIBLE SAYS GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD.
  • 00:34:51.190 --> 00:34:54.070
  • - MATT: IT CONNECTED WITH ME STRAIGHT AWAY.
  • 00:34:54.090 --> 00:34:56.060
  • I KIND OF LIKED THE WAY HE WAS DELIVERING THE
  • 00:34:56.080 --> 00:34:58.290
  • MESSAGE. I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF I'D COME ACROSS A
  • 00:34:59.010 --> 00:35:01.070
  • PREACHER WHO WAS QUITE SO PASSIONATE
  • 00:35:01.090 --> 00:35:02.210
  • AND ANIMATED BEFORE.
  • 00:35:02.230 --> 00:35:04.250
  • I GREW UP IN THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND, ANGLICAN
  • 00:35:04.270 --> 00:35:07.200
  • CHURCH AND IT WAS A PRETTY LIVELY ONE BY
  • 00:35:07.220 --> 00:35:10.030
  • THOSE STANDARDS, BUT I STILL HADN'T QUITE HEARD
  • 00:35:10.050 --> 00:35:14.130
  • ANYONE LIKE LUIS, AND THE THING THAT REALLY STARTED
  • 00:35:14.150 --> 00:35:17.270
  • TO SPARK SOMETHING IN ME WAS WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:35:17.290 --> 00:35:20.130
  • GOD AS A FATHER, AND I'D ALREADY LOST MY FATHER BY
  • 00:35:20.150 --> 00:35:24.100
  • THAT AGE, OBVIOUSLY THREE YEARS BEFORE, AND SO IT
  • 00:35:24.120 --> 00:35:27.170
  • WAS A VERY RELEVANT SUBJECT FOR ME.
  • 00:35:27.190 --> 00:35:31.200
  • I HAD HEARD A LOT ABOUT GOD IN MY LIFE UP TILL
  • 00:35:31.220 --> 00:35:33.240
  • THEN. I KNEW HE WAS THE CREATOR AND THE ONE
  • 00:35:33.260 --> 00:35:35.090
  • THAT GAVE ME BREATH.
  • 00:35:35.110 --> 00:35:37.090
  • I BELIEVED IN THE BIBLE AND ALL THAT KIND OF
  • 00:35:37.110 --> 00:35:39.260
  • THING, BUT I DON'T THINK I HEARD ANYONE EMPHASIZE
  • 00:35:39.280 --> 00:35:42.250
  • QUITE IN THIS WAY THAT GOD IS YOUR FATHER AND
  • 00:35:42.270 --> 00:35:45.180
  • HE'S A PERFECT FATHER, AND IT JUST MADE A WHOLE
  • 00:35:45.200 --> 00:35:47.240
  • LOT OF SENSE TO ME.
  • 00:35:47.260 --> 00:35:49.140
  • - YOU HAVE GOD'S EYE UPON YOU.
  • 00:35:49.160 --> 00:35:52.030
  • AND THE LORD HAS BROUGHT YOU HERE BECAUSE HE WANTS
  • 00:35:52.050 --> 00:35:55.060
  • TO DRAW YOU, YOU SEE, INTO HIS FRIENDSHIP.
  • 00:35:55.080 --> 00:35:58.220
  • HE WANTS TO DRAW YOU INTO HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:35:58.240 --> 00:36:01.270
  • - MATT: SO WHEN IT CAME THAT MOMENT AT THE END OF THE
  • 00:36:01.290 --> 00:36:04.000
  • NIGHT AND HE GAVE AN INVITATION FOR PEOPLE TO
  • 00:36:04.020 --> 00:36:06.240
  • COME TO CHRIST, THAT SEEMED LIKE A BIT OF
  • 00:36:06.260 --> 00:36:09.080
  • A NO-BRAINER TO ME.
  • 00:36:09.100 --> 00:36:11.090
  • I JUST REMEMBER WALKING OUT THE STADIUM THAT
  • 00:36:11.110 --> 00:36:13.100
  • NIGHT JUST WALKING ON AIR, JUST FEELING LIKE
  • 00:36:13.120 --> 00:36:16.250
  • SOMETHING HAD HAPPENED IN MY LIFE, AND I DON'T
  • 00:36:16.270 --> 00:36:20.070
  • REALLY REMEMBER A WHOLE LOT OF THE JOURNEY HOME
  • 00:36:20.090 --> 00:36:22.010
  • BUT I REMEMBER LEAVING THAT STADIUM AND THINKING
  • 00:36:22.030 --> 00:36:24.180
  • WOW, THAT'S THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:36:24.200 --> 00:36:28.160
  • - THROUGHOUT THE NEXT DECADE, CRUSADES IN PERU
  • 00:36:28.180 --> 00:36:31.040
  • AND HONG KONG HAD RECORD BREAKING ATTENDANCE.
  • 00:36:31.060 --> 00:36:34.060
  • LARGE EVENTS WERE ALSO HELD IN NEW ZEALAND,
  • 00:36:34.080 --> 00:36:36.180
  • KENYA, POLAND AND FIJI, JUST TO NAME A FEW.
  • 00:36:36.200 --> 00:36:40.120
  • - LUIS: BLESSED BE EGYPT MY PEOPLE, SAYS THE LORD.
  • 00:36:40.140 --> 00:36:43.210
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:36:43.230 --> 00:36:50.080
  • - LUIS: YOU MAY NOT BE AN ATHEIST...
  • 00:36:50.100 --> 00:36:53.120
  • AND YET IN YOUR HEART THERE'S AN EMPTINESS.
  • 00:36:53.140 --> 00:36:56.000
  • - LUIS WAS ONE OF THE FIRST EVANGELISTS TO
  • 00:36:56.020 --> 00:36:58.010
  • ENTER THE SOVIET UNION AFTER THE FALL
  • 00:36:58.030 --> 00:37:00.040
  • OF THE IRON CURTAIN.

  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:37:02.100 --> 00:37:06.230
  • - LUIS: THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID I AM NOT ASHAMED
  • 00:37:06.250 --> 00:37:09.050
  • OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST...
  • 00:37:09.070 --> 00:37:11.040
  • [INTERPRETER]
  • 00:37:11.060 --> 00:37:14.070
  • ...BECAUSE IT IS THE POWER OF GOD FOR THE
  • 00:37:14.090 --> 00:37:16.080
  • SALVATION OF EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES.
  • 00:37:16.100 --> 00:37:19.250
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:37:19.270 --> 00:37:25.130
  • - BUT IT WAS DURING THE CAMPAIGN IN JAMAICA OF
  • 00:37:25.150 --> 00:37:27.260
  • '93 THAT LUIS AND PAT SAW GOD REVOLUTIONIZE THE
  • 00:37:27.280 --> 00:37:31.170
  • LIFE OF ONE AMERICAN THAT THEY HAD BEEN PRAYING
  • 00:37:31.190 --> 00:37:33.230
  • FOR ALL THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:37:33.250 --> 00:37:37.010
  • - WELL, I FEEL LIKE I'M A LITTLE BIT OF A POSTER
  • 00:37:38.220 --> 00:37:41.000
  • CHILD FOR OUR CAMPAIGNS, FOR MASS EVANGELISM IN
  • 00:37:41.020 --> 00:37:46.000
  • THIS THAT I CAME TO FAITH AT A LUIS PALAU FESTIVAL
  • 00:37:46.020 --> 00:37:49.220
  • IN KINGSTON JAMAICA IN 1993.
  • 00:37:49.240 --> 00:37:52.100
  • I WAS 27 YEARS OLD AND I HAD LIVED ALL THOSE YEARS
  • 00:37:52.120 --> 00:37:56.260
  • FAR FROM THE LORD.
  • 00:37:56.280 --> 00:37:58.240
  • I HAD A REBELLIOUS SPIRIT.
  • 00:37:58.260 --> 00:38:00.110
  • I WASN'T THE STEREOTYPICAL REBELLION,
  • 00:38:00.130 --> 00:38:03.270
  • YOU KNOW, MAD AT GOD, ANGRY AT HIS PARENTS,
  • 00:38:03.290 --> 00:38:07.170
  • YOU CAN'T SHOVE YOUR RELIGION DOWN MY THROAT.
  • 00:38:07.190 --> 00:38:09.290
  • THAT WASN'T MY ATTITUDE AT ALL.
  • 00:38:10.010 --> 00:38:11.240
  • I JUST WAS SORT OF LIKE THE WHEEZILY, WORMY,
  • 00:38:11.260 --> 00:38:14.060
  • "FOLLOW THE PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE" KIND OF GUY.
  • 00:38:14.080 --> 00:38:17.100
  • I WANTED TO PARTY AND HAVE FUN, AND I JUST
  • 00:38:17.120 --> 00:38:19.020
  • WANTED PEOPLE TO LEAVE ME ALONE.
  • 00:38:19.040 --> 00:38:20.220
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO HASSLE WITH PEOPLE, I DIDN'T
  • 00:38:20.240 --> 00:38:23.020
  • WANT TO EMBARRASS MY PARENTS OR PUT ANYBODY DOWN.
  • 00:38:23.040 --> 00:38:25.200
  • I JUST WANTED TO DO EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED TO
  • 00:38:25.220 --> 00:38:28.150
  • DO, AND I WENT THAT WAY FOR 27 YEARS. IT INCLUDED
  • 00:38:28.170 --> 00:38:30.180
  • A LOT OF PARTYING, ALCOHOL AND DRUGS AND ALL
  • 00:38:30.200 --> 00:38:34.060
  • THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT GO ALONG WITH THAT.
  • 00:38:34.080 --> 00:38:36.100
  • - PAT: AS THE YEARS WENT BY, WE FELT VERY SAD THAT HE
  • 00:38:36.120 --> 00:38:40.020
  • COULD MAKE DECISIONS THAT WOULD MAKE HIS RETURN
  • 00:38:40.040 --> 00:38:43.100
  • OR HIS COMING TO FAITH VERY DIFFICULT.
  • 00:38:43.120 --> 00:38:46.050
  • - PAT AND I WORKED TOGETHER. WE WERE FULLY AWARE.
  • 00:38:46.070 --> 00:38:48.120
  • WE DIDN'T WANT OUR KIDS TO GO TO HELL, GOING INTO
  • 00:38:48.140 --> 00:38:51.270
  • THE WORLD AND BEHAVING LIKE PAGANS.
  • 00:38:51.290 --> 00:38:55.150
  • - AND WHEN HE WAS WITH US, HE WAS MARVELOUS AND
  • 00:38:55.170 --> 00:38:57.230
  • WONDERFUL AND SMART AND AFFIRMED EVERYTHING THAT
  • 00:38:57.250 --> 00:39:03.120
  • MOM AND DAD LIKED, BUT WE KNEW HE WAS LOST.
  • 00:39:03.140 --> 00:39:07.100
  • - AND FOR THOSE FEW YEARS WHEN ANDREW WAS
  • 00:39:07.120 --> 00:39:09.190
  • NOT IN THE KINGDOM, IT WAS HARD, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:39:09.210 --> 00:39:12.040
  • BUT WE LEFT HIM WITH THE LORD AND TRUSTED THE HOLY
  • 00:39:12.060 --> 00:39:14.250
  • SPIRIT TO WORK HIM OVER.
  • 00:39:14.270 --> 00:39:17.030
  • - THEY NEVER GAVE UP, AND THEY DIDN'T WANT KNOW
  • 00:39:17.050 --> 00:39:19.270
  • JUST BE A GOOD BOY, BUT THEY WANTED TO SEE MY
  • 00:39:19.290 --> 00:39:22.150
  • LIFE TRANSFORM, AND THAT WAS WHAT WAS ON THEIR HEART.
  • 00:39:22.170 --> 00:39:24.150
  • - LUIS PRAYED FOR YEARS FOR ANDREW.
  • 00:39:24.170 --> 00:39:27.000
  • HE HAD ALL OF HIS FRIENDS, A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:39:27.020 --> 00:39:29.210
  • PRAYING FOR HIM.
  • 00:39:29.230 --> 00:39:31.090
  • IT PAINED HIM DEARLY THAT ANDREW WAS LIVING THIS
  • 00:39:31.110 --> 00:39:34.150
  • KIND OF LIFESTYLE AND NOT WALKING WITH THE LORD.
  • 00:39:34.170 --> 00:39:37.150
  • AND I MEAN LUIS WOULD WRITE HIM LETTERS AND
  • 00:39:37.170 --> 00:39:40.040
  • POUR OUT HIS HEART TO ANDREW.
  • 00:39:40.060 --> 00:39:43.130
  • YOU'RE MESSING UP YOUR LIFE, ANDREW.
  • 00:39:43.150 --> 00:39:45.080
  • WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
  • 00:39:45.100 --> 00:39:47.040
  • - I MET SOME PEOPLE WHO HAD RECENTLY BEEN
  • 00:39:47.060 --> 00:39:48.140
  • RADICALLY TRANSFORMED BY THE GOSPEL, AND THEY WERE
  • 00:39:48.160 --> 00:39:50.190
  • TALKING ABOUT IT, AND IT CAUGHT MY ATTENTION, AND
  • 00:39:50.210 --> 00:39:53.110
  • IT BEGAN IN MY SPIRIT THIS HOPEFULNESS.
  • 00:39:53.130 --> 00:39:57.010
  • MAYBE THIS COULD WORK FOR ME.
  • 00:39:57.030 --> 00:39:58.260
  • - WE WERE ENCOURAGED BY HIS ATTITUDE, HOW THESE
  • 00:39:58.280 --> 00:40:02.020
  • NEW FRIENDS THAT HE HAD MADE, THEY WERE JUST A
  • 00:40:02.040 --> 00:40:06.140
  • STEP AHEAD OF HIM, AND THEY KNEW WHAT HIS NEEDS
  • 00:40:06.160 --> 00:40:09.160
  • WERE, AND THEY WERE NOT PUT OFF BY HIS
  • 00:40:09.180 --> 00:40:11.100
  • HYPOCRISY AND SO ON.
  • 00:40:11.120 --> 00:40:14.090
  • - EVERY NIGHT AT THE KINGSTON NATIONAL STADIUM
  • 00:40:14.110 --> 00:40:16.150
  • WITH THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, I HEARD THE MESSAGE, AND
  • 00:40:16.170 --> 00:40:18.270
  • IT WAS STARTING TO PRESS IN ON ME.
  • 00:40:18.290 --> 00:40:21.100
  • AND ON THE FINAL NIGHT, I REALLY JUST RECOGNIZED
  • 00:40:21.120 --> 00:40:24.040
  • THAT I HAD THIS NEED, AND I DESIRED TO WALK WITH
  • 00:40:24.060 --> 00:40:26.280
  • GOD, AND I DIDN'T WANT TO KEEP GOING THE
  • 00:40:27.000 --> 00:40:28.180
  • WAY I WAS GOING.
  • 00:40:28.200 --> 00:40:30.090
  • - JESUS SAYS, YOUNG MAN, YOU'VE GOT MAKE
  • 00:40:30.110 --> 00:40:31.280
  • YOUR OWN DECISION.
  • 00:40:32.000 --> 00:40:33.260
  • YOU CANNOT HAVE A THIRD HAND FAITH.
  • 00:40:33.280 --> 00:40:37.020
  • YOU CANNOT INHERIT YOUR FAITH FROM YOUR FOLKS OR
  • 00:40:37.040 --> 00:40:40.000
  • YOUR GRANDPARENTS.
  • 00:40:40.020 --> 00:40:41.150
  • GOD HAS NO GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:40:41.170 --> 00:40:44.050
  • - ANDREW SAID THAT THE OTHER KIDS, AFTERWARDS,
  • 00:40:44.070 --> 00:40:47.160
  • THEY WANTED TO GO OUT AND PLAY, AND HE SAID, NO,
  • 00:40:47.180 --> 00:40:49.130
  • I'M GOING TO STAY BEHIND.
  • 00:40:49.150 --> 00:40:51.110
  • AND HE SAID HE SPENT ALL AFTERNOON CONFESSING
  • 00:40:51.130 --> 00:40:54.140
  • EVERY ONE OF HIS SINS AND WEEPING OVER EVERY ONE OF
  • 00:40:54.160 --> 00:40:58.160
  • THEM AND GOT IT ALL OUT BEFORE THE LORD.
  • 00:40:58.180 --> 00:41:03.140
  • NOW HE'S AN EVANGELIST.
  • 00:41:03.160 --> 00:41:05.110
  • - IT WAS REALLY A RADICAL MOMENT; HEALING,
  • 00:41:05.130 --> 00:41:08.050
  • FORGIVENESS, A BURDEN OF SHAME AND GUILT REALLY
  • 00:41:08.070 --> 00:41:10.170
  • WAS PALPABLY LIFTED OUT OF MY LIFE AND MY SPIRIT
  • 00:41:10.190 --> 00:41:14.220
  • AND JOY OVERCAME ME.
  • 00:41:14.240 --> 00:41:18.050
  • HE HEALED ME OF MY ADDICTIONS AND BEGAN,
  • 00:41:18.070 --> 00:41:20.270
  • FROM THAT POINT FORWARD, TO RESTORE RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:41:20.290 --> 00:41:23.290
  • HE PUT ME IN SUCH A GOOD POSITION FOR DISCIPLESHIP
  • 00:41:24.010 --> 00:41:26.250
  • AND GROWTH. I EVEN MET MY WIFE.
  • 00:41:26.270 --> 00:41:29.020
  • SHE WAS ONE OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE WHOSE EXAMPLE I
  • 00:41:29.040 --> 00:41:32.040
  • WAS VERY INTERESTED IN.
  • 00:41:32.060 --> 00:41:34.130
  • SO GOOD THINGS HAPPEN AT THE FESTIVALS.
  • 00:41:34.150 --> 00:41:37.060
  • - IT WAS AN EXCITING TIME AND WHEN I GET
  • 00:41:37.080 --> 00:41:39.220
  • DISCOURAGED WITH SOME OTHER AREA OF LIFE, I
  • 00:41:39.240 --> 00:41:41.210
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:41:41.230 --> 00:41:46.000
  • GOD'S GOODNESS IS NOT TO BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED.

  • - [NARRATOR] BEING AN AMBASSADOR OF THE GOOD NEWS, LUS
  • 00:41:53.110 --> 00:41:55.230
  • WILL STATE THAT THERE IS NO GREATER JOY THAN HELPING
  • 00:41:55.250 --> 00:41:58.250
  • LEAD SOMEONE TO JESUS CHRIST.

  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:42:01.100 --> 00:42:03.200
  • TO REACH A YOUNGER GENERATION, THE CRUSADE
  • 00:42:03.220 --> 00:42:06.090
  • MODEL EVOLVED INTO A FESTIVAL COMPLETE WITH
  • 00:42:06.110 --> 00:42:08.180
  • ROCK MUSIC, EXTREME SPORTS AND FAMILY
  • 00:42:08.200 --> 00:42:12.000
  • ACTIVITIES INTEGRATED WITH THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:42:12.020 --> 00:42:14.160
  • BUT ALONG WITH THE SUCCESS OF THESE EVENTS
  • 00:42:14.180 --> 00:42:16.190
  • CAME ITS SHARE OF CHALLENGES AND DANGERS,
  • 00:42:16.210 --> 00:42:19.020
  • THREATS ON LUIS' LIFE AND TOUGH CRITICISMS, ONE OF
  • 00:42:19.040 --> 00:42:22.120
  • THEM BEING THE SINCERITY OF TRUE CONVERSIONS IN
  • 00:42:22.140 --> 00:42:25.130
  • MASS CRUSADES.
  • 00:42:25.150 --> 00:42:27.170
  • - MY ANSWER IS IN THE BIBLE, IT TALKS ABOUT THE
  • 00:42:27.190 --> 00:42:30.100
  • MULTITUDES, THE CROWDS AND SO ON, DIFFERENT
  • 00:42:30.120 --> 00:42:33.230
  • TERMS FOR DIFFERENT CROWDS, 152 TIMES IN THE
  • 00:42:33.250 --> 00:42:37.010
  • NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:42:37.030 --> 00:42:39.060
  • SO IF THE LORD ISN'T OFFENDED, WHY SHOULD WE BE?
  • 00:42:39.080 --> 00:42:42.210
  • - MAYBE WHAT WE OUGHT TO DO IS BURY THE WORD "MASS".
  • 00:42:42.230 --> 00:42:45.140
  • IT GIVES IMPRESSION OF JUST HERDING SHEEP INTO
  • 00:42:45.160 --> 00:42:48.080
  • THE SHEEP FOLD, AND THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING
  • 00:42:48.100 --> 00:42:52.170
  • ON, AND THEY'VE BEEN MANIPULATED IN SOME WAY.
  • 00:42:52.190 --> 00:42:56.270
  • - SECONDLY, YOUNG PEOPLE IN PARTICULAR, LOVE TO
  • 00:42:56.290 --> 00:42:59.030
  • COME IN LARGE GROUPS AND BE TOGETHER WITH GOOD
  • 00:42:59.050 --> 00:43:01.180
  • MUSIC THAT THEY CAN ENJOY.
  • 00:43:01.200 --> 00:43:04.100
  • THEY LOVE IT, AND THEN THEY CALM DOWN, AND THEY
  • 00:43:04.120 --> 00:43:06.160
  • LISTEN TO THE MESSAGE.
  • 00:43:06.180 --> 00:43:08.120
  • - WE TALK TO A PERSON ONE-ON-ONE.
  • 00:43:08.140 --> 00:43:10.280
  • THAT'S EVANGELISM BECAUSE WE'RE TELLING THEM WHAT
  • 00:43:11.000 --> 00:43:14.010
  • THEY NEED TO KNOW AND BECAUSE WE REALLY CARE.
  • 00:43:14.030 --> 00:43:18.010
  • BUT IT'S NO DIFFERENT IF THERE IS A LARGE
  • 00:43:18.030 --> 00:43:21.060
  • GROUP OF PEOPLE THERE.
  • 00:43:21.080 --> 00:43:23.010
  • - BESIDES, THE GOSPEL NEEDS TO BE PROCLAIMED
  • 00:43:23.030 --> 00:43:24.270
  • TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.
  • 00:43:24.290 --> 00:43:26.210
  • CROWDS DRAW PEOPLE, AND PEOPLE DRAW PEOPLE, SO
  • 00:43:26.230 --> 00:43:29.110
  • WHY NOT DO IT, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:43:29.130 --> 00:43:31.170
  • - HE HAS SUCH A LOVE AND A HEART AND A PASSION FOR
  • 00:43:31.190 --> 00:43:36.160
  • PEOPLE, AND HE WANTS EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT
  • 00:43:36.180 --> 00:43:40.070
  • THEY CAN BE SAVED AND HAVE THEIR SINS FORGIVEN.
  • 00:43:40.090 --> 00:43:42.170
  • - THAT'S WHAT GOD HAS CALLED EVANGELISTS TO DO,
  • 00:43:42.190 --> 00:43:45.010
  • TO SPREAD EVERYWHERE THE AROMA OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:43:45.030 --> 00:43:48.240
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:43:48.260 --> 00:43:58.050
  • - CONVERSION IS NOT THE WORK OF MAN.
  • 00:43:58.070 --> 00:43:59.280
  • WE DO OUR LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:44:00.020 --> 00:44:01.120
  • WE BECOME INSTRUMENTS OF GOD.
  • 00:44:01.140 --> 00:44:02.220
  • SO IT'S THE SPIRIT OF GOD WHO CONVERTS A PERSON BY
  • 00:44:02.240 --> 00:44:06.170
  • CONVICTING HIM ON SIN AND ON THE REALITY OF JESUS.
  • 00:44:06.190 --> 00:44:09.240
  • SO THE HOLY SPIRIT IS IN A STADIUM AS MUCH AS
  • 00:44:09.260 --> 00:44:13.030
  • ONE-TO-ONE AT MCDONALDS.
  • 00:44:13.050 --> 00:44:14.280
  • - THERE WAS OPPOSITION.
  • 00:44:15.000 --> 00:44:16.130
  • THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:44:16.150 --> 00:44:18.000
  • SOMETIMES IN THE SMALLER CITIES, IT WAS ON RADIO.
  • 00:44:18.020 --> 00:44:21.180
  • DON'T GO TO HEAR THIS GUY, WHICH JUST MADE THE
  • 00:44:21.200 --> 00:44:25.000
  • PEOPLE WANT TO GO AND HEAR HIM.
  • 00:44:25.020 --> 00:44:27.120
  • AND WE HAD SOME THINGS, WE GOT SOME DEATH THREATS
  • 00:44:27.140 --> 00:44:29.120
  • AND THINGS LIKE THAT.
  • 00:44:29.140 --> 00:44:31.250
  • - YEAH, THERE HAVE BEEN INCIDENCES THROUGH THE
  • 00:44:31.270 --> 00:44:34.080
  • YEARS WHERE WE'VE HAD BOMB SCARES, WHERE WE
  • 00:44:34.100 --> 00:44:37.270
  • HAVE BEEN IN SOME PRETTY DANGEROUS PLACES, BUT
  • 00:44:37.290 --> 00:44:42.050
  • THAT NEVER STOPPED US FROM GOING TO A COUNTRY
  • 00:44:42.080 --> 00:44:46.050
  • OR MOBILIZING THE CHURCH AS IN PREACHING
  • 00:44:46.070 --> 00:44:49.260
  • THE GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:44:49.280 --> 00:44:52.090
  • - WE WERE IN PERU, AND WE WERE YOU HAVE UP IN A
  • 00:44:52.110 --> 00:44:54.230
  • CITY CALLED ANAK IPA, AND WE DID GET A PRETTY
  • 00:44:54.250 --> 00:44:58.030
  • SERIOUS DEATH THREAT THERE.
  • 00:44:58.050 --> 00:45:00.030
  • HE GOT A MESSAGE FROM THE SHINING PATH GUERILLAS
  • 00:45:00.050 --> 00:45:02.210
  • THAT THEY HAD PUT OUT A CONTRACT ON HIM, AND HE
  • 00:45:02.230 --> 00:45:05.270
  • WAS GOING TO DIE A DOG'S DEATH.
  • 00:45:05.290 --> 00:45:07.210
  • - IT WAS A REAL THREAT.
  • 00:45:07.230 --> 00:45:10.060
  • THEY GAVE ME -- IT WAS CLOSING NIGHT, AND I'M
  • 00:45:10.080 --> 00:45:13.020
  • LEAVING, AND PEOPLE ARE GIVING ME MESSAGES, AND
  • 00:45:13.040 --> 00:45:14.220
  • YOU JUST PUT THEM IN YOUR POCKET.
  • 00:45:14.240 --> 00:45:16.100
  • WE GET TO THE ROOM, AND WE WERE SINGING PRAISE
  • 00:45:16.120 --> 00:45:18.080
  • GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW AND
  • 00:45:18.100 --> 00:45:20.090
  • PRAISING THE LORD.
  • 00:45:20.110 --> 00:45:21.280
  • AND MY CHEST, I OPENED THIS ENVELOPE, I READ IT,
  • 00:45:22.000 --> 00:45:23.220
  • AND IT WAS, YOU ARE GOING TO DIE LIKE A DOG, YOU PIG.
  • 00:45:23.240 --> 00:45:27.200
  • YOU SON OF A THIS AND THAT.
  • 00:45:27.220 --> 00:45:29.040
  • YOU'RE GOING TO DIE.
  • 00:45:29.060 --> 00:45:30.170
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LEAVE THIS VALLEY.
  • 00:45:30.190 --> 00:45:32.030
  • IT WAS IN ANAK IPA, WHICH IS WAY DOWN SOUTH IN
  • 00:45:32.050 --> 00:45:34.170
  • PERU, AND THERE WAS NO WAY OUT EXCEPT THE PLANE,
  • 00:45:34.190 --> 00:45:37.260
  • TWO A DAY, ONE LEAVING, OR DRIVING THROUGH THE
  • 00:45:37.280 --> 00:45:42.020
  • TERRITORY CONTROLLED BY THE SHINING PATH.
  • 00:45:42.040 --> 00:45:45.130
  • WE WENT, AND SUDDENLY AT THE LAST MINUTE, WHEN THE
  • 00:45:45.150 --> 00:45:48.010
  • PLANE ENGINES WERE ALREADY GOING, AND THE
  • 00:45:48.030 --> 00:45:50.140
  • POLICE SAID WE'LL TAKE YOU THERE, WE'LL GET UP
  • 00:45:50.160 --> 00:45:52.200
  • THERE FAST AND GET THIS PLANE OUT OF HERE.
  • 00:45:52.220 --> 00:45:55.030
  • YOU LOOKED AT EVERYBODY, WHO'S THE KILLER?
  • 00:45:55.050 --> 00:45:57.260
  • BUT WE GOT OUT.

  • - I'VE NEVER BEEN SICK A DAY IN MY LIFE, REALLY.
  • 00:46:30.250 --> 00:46:33.080
  • I WAS 83 LAST NOVEMBER, AND I'VE NEVER BEEN IN A
  • 00:46:33.100 --> 00:46:38.090
  • HOSPITAL OVERNIGHT, NOTHING.
  • 00:46:38.110 --> 00:46:40.060
  • I HARDLY EVEN TOOK ASPIRINS.
  • 00:46:40.080 --> 00:46:41.270
  • I JUST DIDN'T TAKE ANYTHING.
  • 00:46:41.290 --> 00:46:43.290
  • AND THEN SUDDENLY, I HAD A COLD I PICKED UP
  • 00:46:44.010 --> 00:46:45.270
  • SOMEWHERE IN THE SOUTH, AND THEN WENT TO ENGLAND,
  • 00:46:45.290 --> 00:46:48.110
  • AND IN ENGLAND, IT WOULDN'T GO AWAY.
  • 00:46:48.130 --> 00:46:50.130
  • SO ON DECEMBER 22, LAST YEAR, WE GO OVER TO THIS
  • 00:46:50.150 --> 00:46:54.010
  • ONCOLOGIST, AND HE SAYS, I'VE STUDIED YOUR X-RAYS
  • 00:46:54.030 --> 00:46:58.210
  • AND ALL OF THIS, AND HE SAYS, IT'S BAD NEWS.
  • 00:46:58.230 --> 00:47:01.050
  • IT IS MALIGNANT CANCER.
  • 00:47:01.070 --> 00:47:03.040
  • IT'S INOPERABLE, INCURABLE.
  • 00:47:03.060 --> 00:47:05.230
  • SCIENCE HAS NO WAY OF CURING IT.
  • 00:47:05.250 --> 00:47:08.160
  • - OF COURSE YOU FIRST GOT THE INITIAL SHOCK,
  • 00:47:08.180 --> 00:47:12.100
  • AND ALMOST DISBELIEF IN THE SENSE OF YOU CAN'T
  • 00:47:12.120 --> 00:47:14.150
  • QUITE PROCESS IT BECAUSE ANYONE WHO'S KNOWN LUIS
  • 00:47:14.170 --> 00:47:19.080
  • PALAU OVER THE DECADES, YOU SEE A GUY WHO'S BEEN
  • 00:47:19.100 --> 00:47:22.070
  • UNUSUALLY HEALTHY.
  • 00:47:22.090 --> 00:47:24.070
  • - EVERY CANCER IS DIFFERENT.
  • 00:47:24.090 --> 00:47:26.020
  • TREATMENTS HAVE REALLY IMPROVED, BUT I DON'T
  • 00:47:26.040 --> 00:47:30.020
  • KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS.
  • 00:47:30.040 --> 00:47:35.030
  • I DON'T KNOW WHETHER THEY'LL KEEP GIVING HIM
  • 00:47:35.050 --> 00:47:37.120
  • -- THE TREATMENT WILL CONTINUE TO BE AS
  • 00:47:37.140 --> 00:47:39.190
  • EFFECTIVE AS IT IS.
  • 00:47:39.210 --> 00:47:41.130
  • - WHEN YOU KNOW THAT YOU MIGHT BE DYING SOONER
  • 00:47:41.150 --> 00:47:44.010
  • THAN YOU HAD PLANNED IN YOUR LITTLE HEAD, SATAN
  • 00:47:44.030 --> 00:47:47.120
  • ATTACKS, AND I THINK PEOPLE OUGHT TO
  • 00:47:47.140 --> 00:47:49.100
  • BE AWARE OF IT.
  • 00:47:49.120 --> 00:47:51.060
  • SATAN COMES WITH SUBTLE QUESTIONINGS ABOUT THE
  • 00:47:51.080 --> 00:47:53.170
  • GOODNESS OF GOD, THE FORGIVENESS OF GOD, YOUR
  • 00:47:53.190 --> 00:47:56.250
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, AND IT'S VERY REAL.
  • 00:47:56.270 --> 00:47:59.220
  • IT IS SPIRITUAL WARFARE, AND YOU GOT TO RESIST HIM
  • 00:47:59.240 --> 00:48:02.130
  • IN THE NAME OF THE LORD AND IN THE POWER OF THE
  • 00:48:02.150 --> 00:48:04.240
  • HOLY SPIRIT WITH THE WORD OF GOD AND THE BLOOD OF
  • 00:48:04.260 --> 00:48:07.280
  • CHRIST SO THAT HE HAS TO FLEE.
  • 00:48:08.000 --> 00:48:10.100
  • - RATHER THAN IT FILLING US WITH A SENSE OF DREAD
  • 00:48:10.120 --> 00:48:13.080
  • AND DESPAIR, IT'S GIVEN US EVEN MORE HOPE BECAUSE
  • 00:48:13.100 --> 00:48:15.290
  • WHEN YOU SEE SOMEONE THAT'S GENUINELY WALKING
  • 00:48:16.010 --> 00:48:19.040
  • WITH CHRIST AND WALKING THROUGH MAYBE THE HARDEST
  • 00:48:19.060 --> 00:48:22.000
  • PHYSICAL SEASON OF THEIR LIFE WITH JOY IN THE HOLY
  • 00:48:22.020 --> 00:48:25.170
  • SPIRIT, IT CHANGES YOU.
  • 00:48:25.190 --> 00:48:27.250
  • - WHAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED PERSONALLY,
  • 00:48:27.270 --> 00:48:29.210
  • ME AND MY WIFE AND OUR CHILDREN IS JUST THAT
  • 00:48:29.230 --> 00:48:33.070
  • THIS HAS BEEN A JOYFUL SEASON, A REALLY
  • 00:48:33.090 --> 00:48:35.240
  • ENCOURAGING TIME IN LIFE TO SEE YOUR FATHER FACE
  • 00:48:35.260 --> 00:48:39.290
  • THE MOST DIFFICULT ENEMY.
  • 00:48:40.010 --> 00:48:42.270
  • THE BIBLE CALLS DEATH "THE FINAL ENEMY." HE'S
  • 00:48:42.290 --> 00:48:45.140
  • TAKING IT ON SERIOUSLY, SOBERLY, HONESTLY,
  • 00:48:45.160 --> 00:48:49.110
  • BUT JOYFULLY.
  • 00:48:49.130 --> 00:48:51.100
  • EVERYTHING THAT HE HAS PREACHED ABOUT ETERNITY
  • 00:48:51.120 --> 00:48:53.260
  • AND BEING READY FOR THAT TIME AND THE PEACE AND
  • 00:48:53.280 --> 00:48:56.250
  • CONFIDENCE THAT YOU CAN HAVE, WE'VE SEEN
  • 00:48:56.270 --> 00:48:59.080
  • IT IN HIS LIFE.
  • 00:48:59.100 --> 00:49:01.030
  • - TO BE ABLE TO END WITH JOY, WITH PEACE -- I'D
  • 00:49:01.050 --> 00:49:03.280
  • LIKE THE BOYS AND OTHER PEOPLE TO REMEMBER MY
  • 00:49:04.000 --> 00:49:06.050
  • GOING TO BE WITH THE LORD THE WAY I REMEMBER MY DAD
  • 00:49:06.070 --> 00:49:09.180
  • SINGING, CLAPPING AND PRAISING THE LORD AND
  • 00:49:09.200 --> 00:49:12.010
  • QUOTING THE BIBLE. WHAT A WAY TO GO.
  • 00:49:12.030 --> 00:49:14.200
  • PAT SAID, YOU KNOW, WE'VE HAD SUCH A GOOD LIFE.
  • 00:49:18.020 --> 00:49:20.070
  • WE'VE BEEN BLESSED TO MEET IMPORTANT PEOPLE.
  • 00:49:20.090 --> 00:49:23.020
  • WE'VE MINISTERED TO HIGH AND LOW, TO THE MASSES,
  • 00:49:23.040 --> 00:49:27.040
  • TO POLITICIANS, TO RICH PEOPLE, TO POOR PEOPLE.
  • 00:49:27.060 --> 00:49:30.250
  • IT'S BEEN A GLORIOUS TIME.
  • 00:49:30.270 --> 00:49:33.050
  • - I CAN TELL YOU ALL KINDS OF STORIES ABOUT
  • 00:49:33.070 --> 00:49:35.000
  • HOW HE SEES.
  • 00:49:35.020 --> 00:49:36.180
  • WHEN YOU LOOK AT A ROOM, YOU JUST LOOK AT, AND
  • 00:49:36.200 --> 00:49:38.240
  • HE'S THINKING, HOW MANY PEOPLE, HOW MANY CHAIRS
  • 00:49:38.260 --> 00:49:41.280
  • CAN YOU PUT IN HERE?
  • 00:49:42.000 --> 00:49:44.000
  • ONCE HE TOOK THE KIDS TO THE CIRCUS, AND I KNOW
  • 00:49:44.020 --> 00:49:46.270
  • FROM WHAT BRIAN TOLD ME, HE WAS SITTING THERE
  • 00:49:46.290 --> 00:49:51.020
  • THINKING HOW HE COULD MAKE THAT VENUE INTO AN
  • 00:49:51.040 --> 00:49:53.290
  • EVANGELISTIC SETTING BECAUSE THAT'S THE WAY HE
  • 00:49:54.010 --> 00:49:57.190
  • SEES EVERYTHING.
  • 00:49:57.210 --> 00:49:59.110
  • - I USED TO SAY IN THE OLD DAYS THAT I HOPE THE
  • 00:49:59.130 --> 00:50:02.150
  • BOYS WOULD WRITE ON MY HEADSTONE, YEAH, AND THEY
  • 00:50:02.170 --> 00:50:05.260
  • WOULD PUT SOMETHING LIKE "MY DAD WASN'T PERFECT,
  • 00:50:05.280 --> 00:50:08.060
  • BUT HE SURE LOVED JESUS CHRIST".
  • 00:50:08.080 --> 00:50:10.070
  • THEY CAN SAY THAT, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:50:10.090 --> 00:50:13.020
  • PERFECT, I'M FAR FROM PERFECT, BUT I LOVE
  • 00:50:13.040 --> 00:50:18.080
  • THE LORD, AND I HOPE PEOPLE REMEMBER THAT.
  • 00:50:18.100 --> 00:50:21.090
  • - DAD'S LEFT ME A LEGACY OF LOVING THE CHURCH OF
  • 00:50:21.110 --> 00:50:24.150
  • JESUS CHRIST, LOVING UNITY IN THE BODY, OF
  • 00:50:24.170 --> 00:50:27.160
  • LOVING THE GOSPEL AND REALLY WANTING TO BE

  • UNASHAMED OF THE SIMPLE PROCLAMATION OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:50:30.170 --> 00:50:34.110
  • - DAD'S ALWAYS MODELED THAT OPEN HANDEDNESS, AN
  • 00:50:34.130 --> 00:50:40.000
  • OPEN HEART WITH WHAT -- WHATEVER HE HAS, WHATEVER
  • 00:50:40.020 --> 00:50:43.260
  • HE'S BEEN GIVEN, HE WANTS TO SHARE
  • 00:50:43.280 --> 00:50:46.040
  • THAT WITH OTHERS.
  • 00:50:46.060 --> 00:50:47.280
  • - HIS PERSEVERANCE, HIS LOVE FOR UNITY, FOR THE
  • 00:50:48.000 --> 00:50:50.180
  • BODY OF CHRIST IN THE LOCAL CHURCH, THOSE ARE
  • 00:50:50.200 --> 00:50:53.270
  • THE THINGS THAT I THINK HAVE REALLY KEPT HIM ON
  • 00:50:53.290 --> 00:50:56.090
  • TARGET MOVING FORWARD TOWARDS HIS MAIN GOALS OF
  • 00:50:56.110 --> 00:51:00.290
  • WINNING HIS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE TO JESUS
  • 00:51:01.010 --> 00:51:04.210
  • CHRIST AND PREPARING GOD'S PEOPLE FOR
  • 00:51:04.230 --> 00:51:06.120
  • WORKS OF SERVICE.
  • 00:51:06.140 --> 00:51:08.060
  • - WELL, TO HAVE MY WIFE FEEL THE SAME WAY I DO,
  • 00:51:08.080 --> 00:51:13.130
  • AND TOGETHER, TO GIVE IT OUR ALL FOR WINNING
  • 00:51:13.150 --> 00:51:17.220
  • PEOPLE FROM HELL.
  • 00:51:17.240 --> 00:51:20.280
  • I STILL THINK THAT WE NEED TO ALLOW OURSELVES,
  • 00:51:21.000 --> 00:51:24.200
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT TO SOFTEN US.
  • 00:51:24.220 --> 00:51:26.200
  • PEOPLE WITHOUT CHRIST ARE GOING TO HELL, AND IT'S
  • 00:51:26.220 --> 00:51:29.100
  • NOT A JOKE, AND IT'S NOT A SWEAR WORD.
  • 00:51:29.120 --> 00:51:31.160
  • IT'S A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE GO.
  • 00:51:31.180 --> 00:51:33.140
  • BUT THE OTHER JOY IS MY BOYS, YEAH?
  • 00:51:33.160 --> 00:51:36.100
  • THEY WALK WITH THE LORD AND SERVE THE LORD, AND
  • 00:51:36.120 --> 00:51:40.060
  • IT'S JUST SHEER PLEASURE TO SEE THEM WALKING WITH GOD.
  • 00:51:40.080 --> 00:51:44.270
  • IT'S VERY GOOD.
  • 00:51:44.290 --> 00:51:46.290
  • AND THEN OF COURSE THE THOUSANDS WHO HAVE COME
  • 00:51:47.010 --> 00:51:49.280
  • TO THE LORD AND THE MILLIONS THAT WE'VE BEEN
  • 00:51:50.000 --> 00:51:52.140
  • ABLE TO PREACH TO, IT'S THE GREATEST JOY.
  • 00:51:52.160 --> 00:51:54.230
  • THERE'S NOTHING LIKE IT, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
  • 00:51:54.250 --> 00:51:57.070
  • YOU'RE DEALING WITH ETERNAL ISSUES.
  • 00:51:57.090 --> 00:51:59.140
  • YOU'RE DEALING WITH THE MOST EXCITING THING IN
  • 00:51:59.160 --> 00:52:01.180
  • THE WORLD, LEADING PEOPLE TO CHRIST, LEADING THEM
  • 00:52:01.200 --> 00:52:04.030
  • TO GOD, LEADING THEM TO ENJOY LIFE ON EARTH BY
  • 00:52:04.050 --> 00:52:06.290
  • THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HOW TO
  • 00:52:07.010 --> 00:52:09.000
  • REALLY LIVE LIFE.
  • 00:52:09.020 --> 00:52:10.240
  • THE LIFE THAT EVERYBODY DREAMS IS THE LIFE THAT
  • 00:52:10.260 --> 00:52:13.050
  • JESUS CHRIST GIVES.
  • 00:52:13.070 --> 00:52:15.010
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:52:15.030 --> 00:52:21.060
  • - AS LUIS AND PAT PREPARE FOR THE NEXT
  • 00:52:21.080 --> 00:52:23.090
  • CHAPTER OF THEIR LIVES, PLANS HAVE ALREADY BEEN
  • 00:52:23.110 --> 00:52:26.090
  • MADE TO PASS ON THE MINISTRY TO THEIR SONS
  • 00:52:26.110 --> 00:52:28.160
  • AND TEACH A NEW GENERATION OF EVANGELISTS
  • 00:52:28.180 --> 00:52:31.060
  • TO SHARE THE GOOD NEWS WITH THE WORLD.
  • 00:52:31.080 --> 00:52:34.000
  • - THE BOARD MADE THE MOVE TO HAVE KEVIN PALAU
  • 00:52:34.020 --> 00:52:36.230
  • BECOME PRESIDENT AND CEO AND ANDREW AS AN
  • 00:52:36.250 --> 00:52:41.070
  • EVANGELIST THAT WILL EVENTUALLY TAKE
  • 00:52:41.090 --> 00:52:43.020
  • OVER FOR HIS DADDY.
  • 00:52:43.040 --> 00:52:44.190
  • TRANSITIONS AND SUCCESSOR PLANS, THEY'RE ALWAYS
  • 00:52:44.210 --> 00:52:47.060
  • MESSY, BUT I THINK TO THE REAL CREDIT OF OUR BOARD
  • 00:52:47.080 --> 00:52:49.200
  • OF DIRECTORS AND THE PALAU FAMILY, IT CAME
  • 00:52:49.220 --> 00:52:54.190
  • TOGETHER, AND WE BELIEVE, AS A MINISTRY, OUR BEST
  • 00:52:54.210 --> 00:52:58.170
  • DAYS ARE AHEAD OF US.
  • 00:52:58.190 --> 00:53:00.110
  • - ONE OF THE REASONS DAD IS SO FULL OF JOY, EVEN
  • 00:53:00.130 --> 00:53:02.260
  • AS HE STRUGGLES THROUGH WITH CANCER IS THAT
  • 00:53:02.280 --> 00:53:06.090
  • HE KNOWS THAT THE ORGANIZATION IS IN SOLID
  • 00:53:06.110 --> 00:53:09.060
  • HANDS IN THE SENSE THAT HE'S DEVELOPED A TEAM,
  • 00:53:09.080 --> 00:53:12.020
  • INCLUDING HIS OWN SONS, THAT SHARE THE SAME
  • 00:53:12.040 --> 00:53:14.180
  • PASSION AS HE, THE GOSPEL SHARED, AND THE UNITY OF
  • 00:53:14.200 --> 00:53:17.040
  • THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:53:17.060 --> 00:53:18.290
  • SO AS WE LOOK FORWARD TEN, TWENTY YEARS DOWN
  • 00:53:19.010 --> 00:53:20.260
  • THE ROAD, WE SEE PALAU FESTIVALS CONTINUING TO
  • 00:53:20.280 --> 00:53:22.250
  • TAKE PLACE ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:53:22.270 --> 00:53:24.200
  • WE HAVE A VISION TO SEE AT LEAST TEN THOUSAND
  • 00:53:24.220 --> 00:53:27.030
  • EVANGELISTS IN 150 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES, PART
  • 00:53:27.050 --> 00:53:30.060
  • OF THE WORLD'S FIRST TRULY GLOBAL
  • 00:53:30.080 --> 00:53:32.040
  • NETWORK OF EVANGELISTS.
  • 00:53:32.060 --> 00:53:34.070
  • - I'VE SAID TO THESE YOUNG GUYS OVER AND OVER,
  • 00:53:34.090 --> 00:53:37.060
  • AN EVANGELIST WITHOUT A TEAM DOESN'T GET VERY FAR.
  • 00:53:37.080 --> 00:53:40.030
  • YOU HAVE TO HAVE A GROUP OF GODLY MEN AND WOMEN
  • 00:53:40.050 --> 00:53:43.090
  • AROUND YOU WHO WALK WITH GOD AND HAVE THE SAME
  • 00:53:43.110 --> 00:53:46.250
  • PASSION AND WHO WANT TO GLORIFY GOD AND WIN
  • 00:53:46.270 --> 00:53:49.180
  • PEOPLE TO CHRIST; THAT THEIR MAIN PASSION IN
  • 00:53:49.200 --> 00:53:52.030
  • CHRIST IS THIS.
  • 00:53:52.050 --> 00:53:55.000
  • BUT THE SOUL OF GOD IS PREACHING OF THE BIBLE,
  • 00:53:55.020 --> 00:53:57.000
  • IT'S THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE GATHERING OF
  • 00:53:57.020 --> 00:54:00.040
  • THE PEOPLE OF GOD, IT'S THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE
  • 00:54:00.060 --> 00:54:02.110
  • PROCLAMATION OF THE GOOD NEWS, THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:54:02.130 --> 00:54:04.020
  • DELIGHTS TO APPLY THE GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:54:04.040 --> 00:54:05.270
  • SO YOU DEPEND ON HIM, AND YOU DEPEND ON HIM NOT
  • 00:54:05.290 --> 00:54:07.170
  • ONLY FOR PROCLAMATION OF THE GOSPEL, BUT ALSO
  • 00:54:07.190 --> 00:54:09.280
  • FOR LIVING THAT CHRISTIAN LIFE.
  • 00:54:10.000 --> 00:54:12.010
  • - AND SO LUIS WANTED TO ENCOURAGE EVANGELISTS
  • 00:54:12.030 --> 00:54:15.120
  • WITHOUT HAVING THEM HAVE TO BECOME PART OF OUR
  • 00:54:15.140 --> 00:54:18.050
  • ORGANIZATION, AND THAT'S WHAT BIRTHED NGA, NEXT
  • 00:54:18.070 --> 00:54:21.120
  • GENERATION ALLIANCE.
  • 00:54:21.140 --> 00:54:23.030
  • - KNOWING THAT WE'VE GOT THE NEXT GENERATION
  • 00:54:23.050 --> 00:54:25.000
  • ALLIANCE WITH 750 EVANGELISTS WE'RE WORKING
  • 00:54:25.020 --> 00:54:27.160
  • WITH, AND WITH ANDREW, HE'S BECOME AN AMAZING
  • 00:54:27.180 --> 00:54:30.240
  • EVANGELIST. HE'S SO ANOINTED. HIS PREACHING IS OUTSTANDING.
  • 00:54:30.260 --> 00:54:37.290
  • HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE SURRENDER TO JESUS
  • 00:54:38.010 --> 00:54:41.100
  • AT HIS OUTREACH EVENTS.
  • 00:54:41.120 --> 00:54:43.090
  • SO WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT THE FUTURE.
  • 00:54:43.110 --> 00:54:45.290
  • - THIS HAS BEEN A GREAT SEASON FOR US, AND THERE
  • 00:54:46.010 --> 00:54:48.200
  • ARE SO MANY OPEN DOORS AROUND THE WORLD FOR THE
  • 00:54:48.220 --> 00:54:51.110
  • GOSPEL AND FOR THE MINISTRY, AND THAT'S
  • 00:54:51.130 --> 00:54:53.280
  • SOMETHING WE DIDN'T TAKE FOR GRANTED, AND WE
  • 00:54:54.000 --> 00:54:55.290
  • ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN DAD
  • 00:54:56.010 --> 00:54:58.070
  • GETS TO THIS PLACE.
  • 00:54:58.090 --> 00:55:00.090
  • WILL WE BE ABLE TO CONTINUE AS WE EXPECT,
  • 00:55:00.110 --> 00:55:02.060
  • AS WE HAVE FELT GOD CALLING US TO?
  • 00:55:02.080 --> 00:55:03.260
  • AND TO SEE THE CHURCH RESPONDING TO SAY YES,
  • 00:55:03.280 --> 00:55:05.250
  • WE LOVE LUIS PALAU. WE HONOR HIM.
  • 00:55:05.270 --> 00:55:08.050
  • HIS LEGACY IS UNIQUE AND INCREDIBLE, BUT WE GOT TO
  • 00:55:08.070 --> 00:55:11.080
  • KEEP GOING FORWARD. THERE'S UNITY HERE.
  • 00:55:11.100 --> 00:55:13.150
  • WE'RE TOGETHER AROUND THE GOSPEL, AND WE'RE
  • 00:55:13.170 --> 00:55:15.230
  • BELIEVING FOR SOULS, AND THERE'S A CONFIDENCE IN
  • 00:55:15.250 --> 00:55:19.070
  • NOT JUST DAD BUT THE TEAM AND ALL THE THINGS THAT
  • 00:55:19.090 --> 00:55:22.020
  • HE HAS INVESTED INTO US.
  • 00:55:22.040 --> 00:55:23.280
  • IT'S GOING TO CONTINUE TO BEAR FRUIT.
  • 00:55:24.000 --> 00:55:25.220
  • WE REALLY HONESTLY ARE BELIEVING THAT THERE
  • 00:55:25.240 --> 00:55:27.210
  • ARE GREATER THINGS YET TO COME.
  • 00:55:27.230 --> 00:55:29.060

  • LOVES YOU, THAT HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE, THAT
  • 00:55:51.110 --> 00:55:54.020
  • GOD WANTS TO COME INTO YOUR LIFE AND TAKE OVER,
  • 00:55:54.040 --> 00:55:57.000
  • THAT GOD WANTS TO MAKE YOU HIS CHILD, FORGIVING
  • 00:55:57.020 --> 00:55:59.190
  • ALL OF YOUR SINS THROUGH THE BLOOD OF THE CROSS,
  • 00:55:59.210 --> 00:56:02.080
  • COMING TO LIVE WITHIN YOU BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND

  • BUT IF YOU WANT TO BECOME A CHILD OF GOD, EVEN
  • 00:56:14.190 --> 00:56:16.090
  • RIGHT NOW, WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS BE HONEST ENOUGH

  • TO ADMIT YOUR SINFULNESS, AND YOU DON'T DESERVE
  • 00:56:20.010 --> 00:56:22.140
  • THE LOVE OF GOD.
  • 00:56:22.160 --> 00:56:24.120
  • SECONDLY, TO BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST AS THE SON
  • 00:56:24.140 --> 00:56:27.030
  • OF GOD WHO DIED ON THE CROSS FOR YOU AND ROSE
  • 00:56:27.050 --> 00:56:29.270
  • FROM THE DEAD, AND HE'S ALIVE TODAY BECAUSE HE IS GOD.
  • 00:56:29.290 --> 00:56:32.240
  • AND THIRDLY, THAT YOU OPEN YOUR HEART AND

  • I CAN HELP YOU TO MEET JESUS CHRIST IF YOU
  • 00:56:38.000 --> 00:56:39.260
  • REALLY MEAN IT BY A PRAYER IN WHICH YOU
  • 00:56:39.280 --> 00:56:42.290
  • INVITE HIM INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:56:43.010 --> 00:56:44.120
  • SO I'LL GUIDE YOU IN A PRAYER WHEREVER YOU ARE.
  • 00:56:44.140 --> 00:56:46.140
  • IF YOU'RE IN A HOTEL OR SOMETHING, FIND A SPOT
