South America To Turn Them From Darkness To Light By Roger D Blevins Have you ever sat in a dark room and thought about the darkness? The simplest definition of darkness is the absence of light. The remedy for a dark room is the introduction of some form of light. The light can come from a number of sources: a candle, an oil lamp, a flashlight, an electric light, etc. There is something far worse than a room void of light—spiritual darkness! It too can be defined as the absence of light, and the remedy for it is the same—introduce light to dispel the darkness. But this is where the similarities end. There are not multiple sources of spiritual light. There is only one source. It is God’s Word. The task of every Christian, the mission of the local church, and the job of every missionary is to give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death (Luke 1:79a). Medellín, Colombia (pronounced: may–day– yean), is a spiritually dark place. Once known as the most dangerous city in the world, Medellín has made great strides toward economic, social, financial, and even cultural recovery after its decades-long struggle under the brutal violence and oppression of fierce drug lords, but a blinding veil of spiritual darkness continues to shroud its people. God has put it in our hearts to take the Word of God to Medellín, Colombia, because we know that is the only hope for dispelling the dreadful spiritual darkness. In order to do this, we have launched PROJECT MEDELLIN. Our goal is to print, ship, and distribute 40,000 Spanish New Testaments in the city. For the small cost of just over $2 per copy, we can make this happen! Of course, we cannot do this alone. We need the help of churches across America to raise the approximately $80,000 needed to carry out this project. Please pray that God will raise up many Project Medellín Partners to help us. 22
