LFTL to Premiere New Celebrate the Light in Orlando

Celebrate the Light, the bi-annual Light for the Lost missions presentation, will feature Project Rescue and FireBible stories at its premiere at General Council.
The new Celebrate the Light (CTL) video presentation titled “FREEDOM and FIRE” will premiere at the Light for the Lost luncheon at General Council, on Friday, Aug. 2, in Orlando, Florida. Light for the Lost recommends those planning to attend should RSVP quickly.

“As usual, we expect tickets to go quickly,” says Rick Allen, national Light for the Lost director. Allen adds that this year’s CTL is a must-see. “The videos we’re going to show are the best we’ve ever produced. The ways in which Light for the Lost partners with missionaries are incredible, and these two videos illustrate them beautifully. We say all the time these are the must-see missions videos of the year, and this year is no different.”

In two powerful video segments, 2019’s CTL features evangelism stories illustrating Light for the Lost’s close ministry partnership with Project Rescue and the FireBible.

In “FREEDOM and FIRE,” a young woman trafficked from West Africa into Spain who finds rescue, hope, and restoration headlines the Project Rescue video segment. A dramatized look at the history of a region in deep need of the gospel and in need of a local language edition of the FireBible is the second segment.

“We filmed in Spain and in the FireBible target region, and the visuals we got are stunning,” says Dan Kersten, director of communications for Light for the Lost, who wrote/directed the piece. “But more than the visuals, the human element and the evangelism aspect in these videos are the most powerful!”

Celebrate the Light is a video presentation released every two years by Light for the Lost. Twelve previous CTL videos can be viewed or downloaded at lftl.ag.org/Celebratethelight.

As previously mentioned, tickets for this year’s Light for the Lost luncheon will go quickly. Senior pastors and their spouses may claim free tickets, while all other tickets are $55 each. However, anyone requesting tickets must RSVP with Casey Linder at [email protected].
