Field evangelism is taking the gospel to where people are already located, instead of trying to get people to come to you. In 1989, Phil Eyster was called by the Lord to international field evangelism, and since then, he's preached in open-air markets, hospitals, factories, jungle villages, nomadic huts in the desert, AIDS colonies, schools, leper colonies, discos, at funerals, at ferryboat landings, and in many other unique and surprising places. This has resulted in some alarming and even near-death experiences, hilarious misfortunes due to cultural and language barriers, but most importantly, many inspiring testimonies to the goodness and saving power of our Lord Jesus Christ.
