Good things are happening in God’s church. COVID has closed a lot of doors. It closed the doors to Latin America during the summers of 2020 and 2021. But when God closes one door, He opens up another. Latin America Missions (Website) did not want to go two summers without campaigns. LAM reached out to Rob Whitacre and the House to House School of Evangelism to work together in a summer campaign called American Mission Campaigns (AMC). After the great success of our first campaign with the Oak Hill congregation in Rome, Georgia, we decided this needed to be a recurring event.
The purpose of American Mission Campaigns is to reach out to those in the United States. AMC is not a typical campaign where we just go out into the field. AMC is designed to train campaigners for successful door knocking with effective HTH strategies. We emphasize proper methods to knock doors, set up Bible studies, as training on evangelism. The program provides skills and tools for the workers who will then put their training into practice.

It is time for the church of Christ in America to wake up! Unless changes are made, many of our children and grandchildren will not have congregations to attend. The church of Christ in the United States needs a cultural shift to focus on local evangelism. It is good for brethren to plan for foreign mission trips and spend countless dollars to go overseas, but say when plans are made for evangelizing local communities, workers are few and resources are scarce. Brethren, this must change!
Recently Latin American Missions and the House to House/Heart to Heart School of Evangelism joined together to conduct the first American Mission Campaign. Our goal is to duplicate in the United States what we do all over the world. We assembled a team of 150 Christians to work for six days in Rome, Georgia. We trained workers and went door to door with the gospel. When evangelizing in foreign countries, a simple invitation to a tent meeting can produce more contacts than a local congregation can bear. This is not how it works in America. Therefore, we are attempting a different approach.
