Sharing the Gospel with Every Home
Thank-you for your commitment and participation in Saturate Lakeland! We are in an unprecedented time of history in Lakeland, in Polk County, and most importantly in God’s story! We are each appointed for this season! (Acts 17:16-28) Get ready to prepare the soil of your Gospel Area of Responsibility with the Good News of Jesus Christ!
Get ready to REAP a harvest. Jesus said in Luke, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
We are so excited for everyone to gather together for the kick-off of Saturate in Lakeland! Please plan to join us! Bring along your ministry leaders and intercessors. You are welcome to invite any other churches who plan to participate in their own areas as well. The details are below:
Saturate Lakeland Launch
Saturday, September 8, 2018
9:00am – 11:00am
What to expect
Saturday, September 8th is going to be an unforgettable time with Evangelist Suliman Mohammad – a former Muslim from Guyana, South America became a Christian and now organizes large distributions of the Jesus DVD. With a powerful testimony and ministry, he travels the world sharing the gospel and witnessing to Muslims. His team has distributed hundreds of thousands of Jesus DVD’s in Canada and in his home country of Pakistan. In addition, this will be a time of worship, prayer, resourcing and instructions for reporting.
What to do now
Prepare your congregation – Assign organizing leaders, Prepare your congregation, Show (12 min) Saturate Orlando video www.SaturateUSA.com , and host a sign-up time after church.
Prepare your marketing materials – Start with 1,000-2,000 materials. These will be stuffed in bags prior to distribution (in the case you are asked to share bags and maps)
Expect to receive materials and maps at your church by or around Sept 8th. Bagging should be scheduled according to delivery. You will be notified when Shared materials are at a host location if applicable.
Please note: Materials and maps will be shipped directly to your church if you signed up by 8/24/2018. **Any organizations in Lakeland signed up after that date – and going forward, will pick up materials and maps from the closest participating church. (Contact Emily Trivette or Gwen Allen)

Finally, Thank-you for your commitment and flexibility through this process! Henry Ford said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” This effort to Saturate our land with the Gospel includes not only Lakeland, but also Polk County, and all of the USA! It cannot be accomplished alone. May our work together prove great success for the Kingdom of God! I Corinthians 15:58 encourages us as brothers and sisters to, “Stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”
