From 1990-present, the O'Dells and those working with them, have
conducted 186 mass evangelism crusades.
Over 13.4 million people have come to know Christ as their Lord
and Saviour through these crusades and uncounted more as a result
of the village outreach efforts of the churches that begin with
the converts of each crusade. Those who attend the meetings are
convinced that Jesus is alive because they are told: “We can prove
to you that Jesus is the Son of God, the only way to Heaven and
is still alive, because tonight there will be miracles. The blind
will see, the deaf will hear, cripples will walk and all manner
of miracles will occur. If there are no miracles tonight, you
can say we are false prophets and chase us out of town; but if
there are miracles, you must believe this Jesus is who we say
He is, and receive Him as your Lord and Savior!” The Lord always
confirms His Word with signs following, though, and the people
readily receive salvation. The O’Dells have never been chased
out of town and never will, for the Lord will always honor the
simple Gospel message they preach.
The phenomenal success of the India Harvest Plan has accentuated
why God has commissioned the O’Dells to establish a School for Harvesters
in Honduras, Central America.
It is a two-year, full-time program and, currently, is available
to Spanish-speaking students only. In order to establish in the
students the need to make reaching the unreached the top priority
of their lives, every student is required to win souls one-on-one
in the poor villages of their nation, by witnessing house-to-house.
They become accustomed to sharing the Gospel with individuals and
to preaching the Gospel from a platform.
The resulting salvations and miracles convince the students that
the power of God will manifest whenever the simple truth about Jesus
Christ is spoken. While not all graduates become pastors or evangelists,
all of them will, for the remainder of their lives, know how to
effectively wield the Gospel sword and increase the population of
