LOS GATOS, Calif., July 15 /Christian Newswire/ -- For the first time, Global Media Outreach (GMO) saw over 1 million people indicate decisions for Jesus Christ in one month. In June, 1,030,581 people indicated either a first-time decision to follow Jesus or a decision to recommit their life to Christ through one of more than 90 GMO Gospel Web sites.
Whether by mobile phones or computer, millions of people continue to go online to seek God every day. GMO has seen the number of people indicating decisions for Jesus on their Gospel Web sites triple over the last year.
"This is an historic event only possible by God's power," said Walt Wilson, GMO founder and chair. "Over the past few months, we have seen an increasing number of people come to our evangelistic web and mobile sites."
From those decisions, GMO's online missionaries responded to more than 180,000 people who e-mailed the ministry asking for discipleship. One seeker from Nigeria wrote GMO to say: "I like to have a friend that can be of help in my dream of building my faith. I believe in this site and that, by the grace of God, I will not go back to my old sinful life."
GMO is bringing evangelism into the 21st century. This California-based ministry's vision is to give everyone multiple opportunities to know Jesus, build them in their faith and connect them to Christian communities. GMO is using the Web and other emerging technologies to effectively and efficiently convey the love of Christ and plan of salvation across the globe. Since its inception in 2004, GMO has seen the number of people making commitments to Christ grow from 21,066 people annually to more than 3 million people in 2008.
