October 5, 2010, James Harrison, our co-founder went to be with the Lord. Today we celebrate the 27 years God allowed us to share with James and the incredible legacy he left through the ministry of With Open Eyes. In just 5 years, we have mobilized 220 messengers to share the gospel, planted 341 churches, and 157,597 people have come to Christ. Praise God for the work he has done and continues to do.
From Life After The Storm by James’ mother Jan Harrison:
“During different periods of his life, storms raged and he was battered and bruised by them. But this was the final storm, and we had no doubt this time he would not be battered of bruised. He is whole, healthy, and walking in the light of the glory of God, safe on the other side. We know where James is and we know we will see him again. It’s not just wishful thinking or a way to reconcile our loss. This is the gospel.”
