A six-year-old Orlando, Florida, boy amazed his parents when he told them he not only wanted a superhero birthday party, but he also wanted the Gospel preached at his party so his friends would accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Jacoby Enge and his parents, Rob and Megan, spoke with CBN News about Jacoby’s wish.
Megan said her son first mentioned the idea on the way home from daycare. She said Jacoby wanted to invite Peter Vandenberg, vice president of Christ For All Nations, to his party. That’s the ministry founded by evangelist Reinhard Bonnke and where Jacoby’s Dad works.
“So I thought to myself, ‘Okay, why do you want to invite him?’ And he so nonchalantly responded and said, ‘Because I want him to preach the Gospel at my birthday party,'” Megan explained.
“And I said, ‘Oh, okay. Well, why do you want him to do that?'” she continued. “And Jacoby responded that he wanted all of his friends that didn’t know Jesus to come into his kingdom and know him the way that Jacoby knows him and that he wanted him [Vandenberg] to obviously cut his birthday cake, too. So, he had it all planned out, and he was really excited.”
“I wanted Peter Vandenberg to tell all the people that don’t know Jesus, and I just really wanted to do that,” Jacoby told CBN News.
Jacoby’s birthday wish was granted as Vandenberg agreed to share the Gospel at the party, and his dad, Rob, said more than 15 children and adults accepted Christ.
“I really felt that his request was so much more than just the Gospel being preached at his party, but it was a sign of the great things to come and how the Lord has marked Jacoby as such a time as this to be a leader of his generation,” Rob shared.
“And we just felt that when the Gospel was preached that the Lord would use this opportunity to mark other five, six, seven-year-olds all dressed up in their super hero masks and capes… to be leaders of their generations as well,” he continued.
