Nicaragua: Thousands flock to Somotillo to hear the Gospel and encounter God
by Karen Faulkner, Worthy News Correspondent
(Worthy News) – Thousands of people gathered in a small town in western Nicaragua Saturday to hear the Gospel preached by US evangelists from Shake The Nations Ministries (STNM) to have a life-changing encounter with Jesus, GOD TV reports.
Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America, but it is also one of the poorest nations in the region: 48% of the population of Nicaragua lives below the poverty line, and 79.9% of the population survives on less than $2 per day.
Saturday’s event in the town of Somotillo in the Nicaraguan region of Chinandega was the first of many to be held as part of a year-long Gospel campaign led by Florida-based STNM for the whole of Nicaragua, GOD TV said.
In a Facebook post about the massive gathering on Saturday, Nathan Morris, founder and president of STNM, said: “There are no words to describe what happened tonight,” evangelist Nathan wrote in his Facebook post. “The inaugural campaign of Buenas Nuevas Nicaragua was beyond words- The Holy Spirit moved in a mighty way!”
There was some notable opposition to the Gospel being preached in the town, and local occultists sought to prevent people from coming to hear the Good News and be saved.
“Witches had attempted to place sacrifices and curses around the field to stop the people from coming and hearing the gospel, but the Lion of Judah roared, and the devil was defeated tonight!” Morris added in his post.
Many of those who attended shared testimonies of miracles, signs, and wonders that took place at the event. And thousands responded to the call to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, GOD TV said.
