Thanks for your prayers!
Wow, we had a busy weekend, with great music, and a fantastic message of faith from Luis Palau! Although I'm very tired, I'm glad to have had this opportunity.
Here's the results in brief...
Friday, June 24
Around 15-20,000 people attended the event on Friday night.
Over 1700 decision cards were filled out
Of these cards, 1190 indicated a decision to accept Christ as Saviour!
Another 230 indicated recommitments.
No responses for Pozuelo on Friday night
Saturday, June 25
Around 30,000 people attended the event on Saturday night.
Over 4000 decision cards were filled out
Of these cards, 2300+ indicated a decision to accept Christ as Saviour!
Another 500+ indicated recommitments.
8 response for Pozuelo on Friday night!
We are still working to organize the decision cards, as not all have clear information. Pray that we'll be able to make contact with all these people to follow up with as many of the decisions as possible. In the next weeks, many churches will be working hard to follow up with these people. Please continue to pray.
Thanks again for your prayers! This response in Spain is unprecedented! Just having such a large event has caused people to take notice. Interestingly, the day after the event, in the Aluche church (where we attend), 10 people indicated receiving Christ after an evangelist spoke! Is this the beginning of a new openness in Spain? Keep praying for us!
