The principal preacher was Mr.Josh McDowell, whom considered himself an atheist person, believing that Christian is worthless; however, he discovered very convincible evidences that prove the existence and the trustiness of God. As soon as he accepted Jesus Christ as a savior his life changed entirely, and God's strength and love is obvious in his life. In 1961, he joined the "Life Agape" organization, after period of time Josh McDowell established his ministry, based on a vision, of communication with the youth around the word and convey Jesus' love message, during the 48 year of serving God, Josh wrote more than 112 books.

The second day, most of the participants separated to group as ages, to distribute "packages" that contain Christian books and a move speak about Jesus. In only one hour almost over than 2000 packages were distributed, in the old Jerusalem's neighborhood and outside it. There were different reactions, part of the people accepted it with pleasure, and other resisted it or burned it. Our prayers that may God use the seeds we spread for the salvation.
