SAN ANTONIO, April 29 /PRNewswire/ — Best-selling author and pastor Max Lucado participated in a multi-day evangelistic campaign in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, sponsored by Mike Silva International.

Mike Silva International estimates more than 160,000 people attended the festival in two days.

Lucado spoke mostly from his most recent best-selling book, 3:16-The Numbers of Hope ( Thomas Nelson, September 2007), and his upcoming book, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear ( Thomas Nelson, September 2009).

“Like we all do, the people in Honduras need to replace fear with hope,” says Lucado. “I will always treasure the memory of sweet faces, humble pastors and a great harvest.”
