August, 2013 :: Update from the Mission Field :: Nathan and Dawn Pietsch

written by: Nathan D. Pietsch

Dear Friends and Family,

August was a stretching month for Dawn and I on the USA mission field. There were a number of amazing testimonies though. However, instead of sharing those testimonies, we feel compelled to reiterate our three primary objectives as full-time missionaries. In the update below, you will find our primary ministry objectives outlined, along with some special prayer requests. If you are interested in connecting and supporting us on a personal level you can at:
Since our venture into full-time ministry, we have three primary objectives we feel we are called to accomplish as missionaries. Our first objective is to reach the lost on the streets and in the marketplace in the areas we travel. We accomplish this through power evangelism outreach. Our second objective is to train and equip other churches in power evangelism outreach. Our third objective is to conduct revival meetings and conferences. We will look at each objective in further detail below.
1) Power Evangelism Outreach
Dawn and I travel to cities and regions we feel the Lord is calling us to go to. We live completely by faith. Once we arrive in a region, we begin power evangelism outreaches. In Luke chapter 9, Jesus sent out the disciples and in verse 6, the Bible says—So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere. Jesus also instructed us in Mark 16:15 when He said—"Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."
We do a variety of outreaches. Some of these include: feeding those in need, visiting people in hospitals, homes, or senior centers, treasure hunts, highlight evangelism, prophetic ministry, and prayer walks. Our goal is to love people with the love that the Lord has shown us. We are actively reaching the hurt and desperate, and are considered, frontline missionaries.
Over the past five years, we have encountered thousands of people on the streets and in the marketplace doing power evangelism. We have ministered to: witches, Voodoo queens, prostitutes, gang members, drug addicts, mentally disturbed, suicidal people, satanists, and demon possessed people. Many of those we ministered to had an amazing God-encounter which resulted in them receiving Jesus Christ into their hearts as their personal Lord and Savior.
2) Activate Others in Evangelism
Our second ministry objective in a region is to activate other churches in power evangelism. We are passionate evangelists. We love to release God’s love on the hurting and desperate people we find on the streets and in the marketplace. However, there is a real need for other people and churches to also become activated in power evangelism outreach. Therefore, it is our objective to train and equip the local churches in power evangelism in the areas we are called to do ministry. By training the local churches to do power evangelism, outreach can continue strong in the area once we are called to another region.
3) Revival Meetings
Our third ministry objective is to conduct revival meetings and conferences. We have preached in churches nationally and internationally. We also desire to start a ministry activation school.
