It is Good Friday in Modesto. I have no doubt that both Satan and Hell are screaming, “Foul!” It is still a full two weeks before the tent goes up at John Thurman Field and souls—scores of them—are already being saved!
Frank Saldana and Carmine Azzato were a Holy Ghost, double-barreled shotgun, today. After we gave away prizes. After the haircuts, clothes, and food were shared, the people stayed to hear the Gospel.
Carmine told his amazing story—a journey in professional wrestling that spanned 24 years, in dozens of nations, and 9 world championships. But he said, “None of that kept me from trying to commit suicide 3 times.”
He went on to compare the souls of the audience and the valuable prizes we gave away. “These prizes are one of a kind, and to God you are one of a kind!” he said. After he reached a crescendo of impact on the hearts of the people, he grabbed a towel and wiped the makeup off of his face declaring, “It is time for you to wipe off the mask!” And then, just like the pro tag team wrestler he is, he handed the mike to Frank Saldana.
Frank stood there, reflecting God the Father’s heart for the people. Building on Carmine’s soulwinning message, he appealed to them to come to Jesus. And they came. Out of that large crowd they tell me that 100 souls were saved. But as always, only God knows the real number.
Our volunteers, under the leadership of the team from Inner City Action, waded in and brought life, transformation and healing miracles to the hungry souls who obeyed the call to come to Christ.

All of the hard work; all of the prayers; all of the financial sacrifices by our partners, broke through today. One sowed. Another watered. But God gave the increase.
Forget about all the lies you have heard about California. The dictatorship of Hollywood, Silicon Valley and Democrat socialism is neutralized by the presence of God. Whether it is in a tent, in a park, or in a church—when the power of God is present, when the message is preached forcefully, full of truth, and full of love—chains break, and the soul is delivered from darkness into His marvelous light!
Brace yourself, because this is only the beginning! Hundreds have yet to report for duty on the streets of Modesto. Many powerful meetings are just beginning in this region. The people of God in the Modesto area got a crucial foretaste today of the harvest! A harvest that the devil does not want us to know is here. And soon the tent will be here!
Satan thought he had won when Christ was crucified, but soon, it was clear that he had made his worst mistake and his biggest miscalculation. So, the devil will find that after locking down the California churches, and pouring despair on the people, that all it did, was deepen the hunger for Jesus! If this is the precursor to the tent—then what has the Lord in store for us come Sunday April 18th?
I am personally inviting you to come to Modesto, join us, and help bring in this harvest!
