Poster advertizing a Hispanic evangelistic campaign, co-sponsored by Latin America Mission and the pastors of the city, in three of New York's five boroughs, November 13-December 3, 1950.
Following a special service for Spanish-speaking people at Madison Square Garden during Billy Graham's 1957 New York Crusade, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association returned to New York for the Spanish-American Crusade, October 7-9, 160, which was focused entirely on the Hispanic population of the city. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association continues to reach out to Hispanics throughout the world in many ways today, including in planning crusades and providing Spanish-language evangelistic materials.
Evangelistic efforts among Hispanics in New York were not just confined to large campaigns. Many Spanish-speaking pastors urged Latin America Mission to carry out mission activities in the city. Starting in 1956, Latin America Mission provided an evangelistic radio program and correspondence course. In following years under the local direction of Juan Isais, the mission agency also started a Spanish-language religious bookstore and the Spanish Bible Institute to assist local Hispanic churches in reaching their families, friends and neighbors with the gospel of Christ.
