From the Land of Reformation

Greetings from Geneva Switzerland! 

Geneva is historically a place where transformation has taken place. The Swiss have applied Biblical values to see culture and the world change.

Today, Switzerland has left some of their hertiage and turned to their own efforts.

In the land of Swiss watches, international banking standards, and the seat of the United Nations, I had the privilege of partnering with Nations 2 Nations to proclaim the grace of God. 

Nations 2 Nations is an international movement committed to championing Identity, Dignity, and Destiny of all people from all nations. The vision is based on Revelation 7:9 where all nations are represented around the the throne of God in heaven.

“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes…”


Together with Benny Prasad, a world record holder, I was able to minister in several venues in Geneva, Nyon, and Lausanne, Switzerland. We shared in churches, universities, missions gatherings, and even the United Nations!

In the most humanist of organizations, the gospel is having an impact. I met several high level workers in the United Nations. It is amazing to hear their stories of how the gospel is penetrating a very God-less organization. I had lunch with the man who oversaw 1.5 million refugees in Rwanda following the genocide. I was so touched by his heart to serve people in the worst of situations, using the platform the United Nations has given him. He has used my book, Death of the Modern Superhero, to teach Bible studies!

I met another African man who’s Christian convictions led him expose corruption at the highest levels of a UN agency.

My perspective on ministry grew in this trip. Government is often considered the darkest of areas. If gospel is having a major impact within the United Nations, it can anywhere!

What a gift and privledge to call the nation which historically spread the message of Grace thorughout the modern world, back to their foundations of Reformation.
