All guest evangelists who agree to preach a Global-Evangelism evangelistic series will receive the set of CDs appropriate for the part of the world to which they will be traveling. All the sermon notes on the CD are in Adobe Acrobat format and can be identified by the " .pdf " extension after each file name. However, in order to open, read, or print these files you must have an Acrobat reader installed in your computer. Then, all you need to do is to double click on the sermon file you want to use and the Reader will open it.
If you do not have an Adobe Acrobat Reader installed in your computer, clicking on the Adobe logo to the left will take you to their website where you can download a free copy of their reader. You will find instructions about how to download and install the Acrobat Reader on that website.
Please note the following recommendations for printing out the sermons:
1) Print the notes using only one side of each piece of paper. It is MUCH easier to preach from these notes since it is not necessary to turn the pages, which can distract the attention of the audience from your message, but merely slide them from one pile of paper to the other.
2) Print the notes using a color printer since it is far easier to see at a glance whether the picture you see on the notes matches the one the audience is seeing on the screen.
If you don't have access to a color printer you may want to ask someone who does to print these for you. In the past Mesa Grande Academy (in Yucaipa, California) has printed out very high quality sets of sermons for guest evangelists to use. You may ask about this by sending an e-mail message to Mr. Steve Becker at: stevenbecker AT mac.com
Global Evangelism at present has two sets of sermons one of which is provided free of charge to each guest evangelist, depending on the area of the world in which his/her campaign is scheduled.
1) International Set: The graphics and illustrations are international in scope. The sermons and graphics are fully interchangeable between languages. At the present (end of 2002) sermon notes are available in English and Spanish, and sermon graphics are available in English, Spanish, and French.
Translation of the graphics is under way for the following languages: German, Romanian, Bulgarian, and Hungarian. And translation of the sermon notes is under way in German, French, Romanian, and Bulgarian.
2) Contextualized for Africa: The sermon notes, some of the stories and graphics of this set, have been contextualized for use in Africa. At present these sermon notes are available only in English while the graphics are available in both English and French. Translation of the French notes is under way.
Someone who is not going to conduct a Global-Evangelism campaign but wishes to acquire one of these sets should follow the instructions on the CD-ROM Page in this website.
