Palau TV Outreach Provides Biblical Encouragement, Hope for Millions of Viewers

PalauEvangelist Luis Palau recently engaged in five nights of call-in TV programming broadcast throughout the Spanish-speaking world and had the opportunity to offer biblical advice and counseling on matters of faith to millions of viewers in dozens of nations.

For the December 3-7 effort, Continente 2012, the Luis Palau Association collaborated with Enlace Television, the largest Spanish Christian network, which broadcast the program in more than 23 nations.

Throughout the week, Palau and an off-stage panel of trained counselors took more than 680 calls. While caller questions varied immensely, Palau guided each individual through the Scriptures to find hope and encouragement for everything from anxiety to substance abuse.

As in past years, the Continente outreach provided a platform for sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in a real, fresh and relevant way. Whether they connected with Palau or one of the other trained counselors standing by, each caller will receive a booklet for new believers, a free Bible from United Bible Societies, a follow-up phone call from a pastor in their area, and access to further counseling from ministry partners.

Over the next few weeks, about 5,000 churches across Latin America will be facilitating follow-up efforts.

The Palau Association is encouraging fellow believers to pray for the callers and the thousands more who were touched by Continente 2012.

"This opportunity to reach the Spanish-speaking world with the Good News is very near to my heart," remarked Palau, who first started counseling people on television in 1965 in Quito, Ecuador, in partnership with HCJB Global Ministries. "Please pray with us!"
