Robert Costa, evangelist and speaker for "Escrto Está", the Spanish television program of "It Is Written" television program
INDIANA—A special rally was held Saturday, Feb. 16, at Glendale Church in Indianapolis which featured Robert Costa, an evangelist and speaker for the “It Is Written” television program. The rally was videostreamed to 14 remote locations around the state, and approximately 900 people were in attendance.
Costa exclaimed, “Something big is about to happen in Indiana, and God still opens doors.” He gave a whirlwind tour of his global evangelism outreach experiences with visuals showing people in the Ukraine, Italy, Uganda, Columbia, and even the Arctic, and how the gospel message worked in people’s hearts as they were exposed to acts of kindness. He emphasized the timing and urgency for conversion as we live in a continually chaotic and confusing world, and how much we need God’s love and understanding of world events.
Church leaders gave reports of seminars that have been held this past year around Indiana, and the baptisms and church growth that have resulted. Plans for state events leading up to the General Conference session were unveiled including simultaneous evangelism meetings under the theme, “Ignite Indiana,” being held April and May 2020, as well as a major health clinic where hundreds of volunteer doctors, nurses and health practitioners will come to Indianapolis to serve those in need of medical, dental and vision services.
“We are excited to be the host city for this global church meeting that occurs every five years in the Seventh-day Adventist Church,” said Indiana Conference president Vic Van Schaik, who’s praying the campaign will have a big impact on Hoosiers. “Yes, something big is about to happen in Indiana!”
