After his father passes away at age 10, the lives of Luis Palau and his family are changed forever. Within a few years of his father’s death, Luis, his siblings, and his mother are left nearly destitute. Luis is forced to discontinue his education at an elite boarding school in Argentina and provide for his family as they slip into poverty.
In the years that follow, Luis devotes his life to God, begins preaching, launches a radio show and, ultimately, is invited to the United States to study and become a missionary. His decision to study in the United States is not easy, and he must leave his mother and four sisters in Argentina to follow in faith what God has called him to do.
During seminary school, Luis is encouraged to plant churches and teach. Yet, since he was a child, God gave him a vision of bringing the good news of Jesus to people across the globe. To eventually fulfill this vision, he must overcome many challenges, including personal impatience and doubts with what seemed to be an enduring process while God was teaching, molding and grooming him. Luis learns to stand firm in the plans God has before him while contending with serious threats to his safety as he began evangelizing in South America amidst violent political turmoil.
An unexpected encounter with Billy Graham would bring about the launch of Luis Palau’s global ministry at a level only God could ordain. Built upon his unwavering belief that the teachings of the Bible and a relationship with God are the foundation of life, Luis presents the GOOD NEWS to millions. From the most influential business and political leaders to everyday people, an unprecedented number of lives are changed. The path is not always easy, but remaining dedicated to the vision God placed in his heart along with his consistent message of hope and love, Luis Palau impacts the world.
This is a true story of a man who was born in a small town in Argentina, committed his whole life to the works of the Lord and embarked on an incredible journey becoming one of the greatest evangelists in history. The legacy of Luis Palau and what God can do with a willing heart will inspire people of faith for generations.
