It was not just a tent meeting it was God publicly displaying His power to do the impossible. From the jump, we were handed a long list of impossibilities. It was impossible to get the site we needed. It would be impossible to go 6 straight nights and hope for any kind of a crowd. It was impossible to get churches to cooperate with each other in a city notoriously called a graveyard for preachers.
We would be in the shadow of Burning Man—a gigantic event known worldwide—no one will know you are here. Some even referenced the strong winds that blow in September here in the mountains. At every turn, we faced a threat that promised to end our vision for Living Proof Reno.
Then I was given a direct order from the Holy Spirit: 6 straight nights of miracle rallies. Even as a young man, a single night of miracles could drain me for days. At most, I remember doing 3, maybe 4 in a row. Now I was to do 6!
I cannot describe what happened in those 6 nights. It would take me months to do it justice. However, many are saying this tent meeting is a turning point for this area. I wish I could go into detail about every testimony of healing—there were scores and scores who were touched by Jesus. I wish I could portray the moments when souls met Jesus in dramatic ways. Many who simply walked in off the street and were overcome by the power of God.
Friday night was one of the greatest manifestations of the Holy Spirit I have seen in 50 years of ministry. There is no doubt we could have continued these meetings and they would likely have grown in attendance and intensity. There is a big reason we cannot stay in Reno.
I need to talk to you about Houston Texas, and San Antonio Texas. We are doing something now that is even more challenging than Reno. We are like an army coming out of a great battle and turning to march to an even greater battle. The biggest challenge we face is time.
I am especially directing my appeal to leaders, Pastors and concerned Christians. I am coming to Houston October 22nd and to San Antonio October 23rd to meet you! I am asking anyone who has a heart to see a miracle to join me. Register by clicking here: https://app.mobilecause.com/f/1xez/n
We are still scrambling to catch up from the 4 months that I was flat on my back. We had seriously talked about cancelling the great invasions in the inner cities of Houston and San Antonio. The Holy Spirit said to go in faith and believe for an epic breakthrough.
How can we cancel while the nation writhes in the agonies of addiction, political hatred and division? How can we cancel when cities are ravaged by violence? How can we be silent when God-hating mobs are filling our youth with lies?
That is why no matter what the cost—no matter how draining—no matter what the danger we will bring to Houston and San Antonio the kind of meetings America saw in the 1950s when miracle evangelists turned cities upside down!
I need your help. I am praying as I have never prayed before for God to send us workers. Would you like to see addicts delivered? Prostitutes transformed? Gangsters made into new creations? Then join our army!

I’ll have coffee and donuts for you but most of all I have a plan form God and fire from the Holy Spirit for you to make history!
I know this is all short notice, but God does some of His works on short notice. The Bible says, “Then Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced that God had prepared the people, since the events took place so suddenly.” -2 Chronicles 29:36
The doctor told me I had one of the worst disk injuries he had ever seen. This was my 4th doctor. I survived 5 months of excruciating pain—but the worst was yet to come. He told me I needed surgery fast. But, choosing the best neurosurgeon meant I had to wait. Waiting in pain—not knowing how long you’ll wait—is a hard thing.
During that season, I could not understand what was happening to me. Our tent crusades were shut down. I wondered if I would ever be able to stand again.
We get an appointment. Even though the neurosurgeon had all my X-rays, his office ordered me to rush and get a new set 1 day before my appointment. We had no idea how important that was.
We finally see him. He says, “I compared your new and old X-rays. Mario, this is a miracle. If you had come in 4 weeks ago, I would have had to operate. It means going in through your stomach, leaving an 8-inch scar on your abdomen. Even then, there was no promise you’d get better, and you’d face a year of rehab. But something changed and now all you need is physical therapy.” God makes us wait for good reasons.
I am excited because my injury even without surgery should take a year to recover. Instead I am restored and, on a soul-winning vendetta.
Satan attacked me to stop our tent crusades. He was frustrating an urgent project. We have been building an industry around our tent. We have amassed equipment, soldiers, and systems for a mighty evangelistic weapon. One of our most important developments is our teamwork with Inner City Action and Frank Saldana.
We developed an explosive training program called FIREPOWER. This training is going to give us a national army.
Last year, it took several months prepare to do just one Living Proof Tent Crusade. Now all the working parts are in place. The machine is humming!
I am excited because we are going to do three crusades before Thanksgiving! Here are the details:
