Several people were baptized over the weekend at an event in Orlando, USA which showcased testimonies of nearly 400 people who left the LGBT lifestyle and found freedom in Christ, Uganda Christian News has learnt.
According to the Christian Post, the group gathered during the ‘Freedom March’ at Lake Eola Park, despite the threat of a tropical storm and counter protesters.
The march was organized by Angel Colon and Luis Javier Ruiz, both men who survived the shooting at the Orlando nightclub, Pulse, in 2016. Since the shooting, both men abandoned homosexuality and started a ministry called Fearless Identity, according to the Christian Post.
“This is not a gay-to-straight thing,” Ruiz said. “It’s a lost-to-saved thing.”
In between times of worship, person after person took the stage to share their story—sexual abuse, pornography, gender confusion, drugs, alcohol, sex addiction or prostitution.
Upon embracing salvation, the group said they not only received deliverance from homosexuality but also grew in confidence in Jesus Christ knowing that in Him, they have freedom, and have received the forgiveness of sin.

Speaking to Charisma News, the event organizers said they faced more opposition for this march than any march they’ve had.
“Much of the opposition came from people who don’t understand our story,” Ruiz told Charisma News.
“I think there was a spiritual release that happened at this march [more] than ever before, and I think the enemy felt that in the spirit and he opposed it, but the Lord won,” he said. “The Lord birthed something in this Freedom March, like a breaking in the spirit, like a taking of ground. He went before us and this one was very key to plowing some hard ground spiritually. I really feel like the Lord used this one to till through something and I just feel there’s a harvest coming from this one like never before.
As a prophetic step of faith in this tilling, Freedom March leaders baptized people several times during the event.
Further more, in the last hour of the event, the Freedom March leaders asked everyone in attendance to turn toward the city with their hands raised and pray.
