Near the end of our three-week festival in Managua, Nicaragua, a woman met me on my way into the stadium.

With tears in her eyes, she gave me a big Latin hug and thanked me for presenting the Good News so clearly. She explained that her grandson, Danilo, age 10, had received the Lord two nights earlier.

She said, “The next morning, he was so happy. He told me, ‘Granny, I’ve got eternal life!’”

But, the next day, tragedy struck. Danilo was out delivering newspapers on his bicycle, when he was hit by a truck and died on the spot. I was shaken by Danilo’s death, but the Lord used it for His glory.

That night, I shared Danilo’s story with some 30,000 people at the festival and many came to know Christ. We made a film out of Danilo’s story. Many thousands more have come to Christ because of the film. And Danilo, the sweet Nicaraguan boy, has been enjoying Jesus face to face for some 30 years now.

The Bible says, “Be very careful, then, how you live– not as unwise, but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.”

That’s why now is the best time to give your friends a chance to hear the Good News, receive Jesus Christ into their hearts, and live their lives with Him and for Him.


“Are you waiting for the “right time” to share the Good News with a loved one? Don’t delay, because we never know when this life will end and eternity will begin.”

Ephesians 5:15-16

“So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.”
