Congresso da Paz 2009

The final numbers are in! Over the 3 nights of the Congresso, 788 people gave their lives to the Lord! Hallelujah! On the last night, many people were barred from entering the already packed stadium. What an amazing problem: not even the stadium has enough space to fit everyone who wants to come! We’re already looking at better ways of taking advantage of our space and programming to make the next Congresso even better and more hospitable to attract visitors.

It’s a great honor for us to be able to present to you this 4 minute highlight video of the Congresso. You’ll see the dramas, dances, worship, music, preaching and programs that make the Congresso so great. More than that, you’ll see the response of many to the love of the Lord. Enjoy this video and if you’re on a quick internet connection, click the “HQ” button to watch in full High Quality!

Congresso Closing: Sunday Night

July 12, 2009

Long before the Congresso started on Sunday, the doors to the stadium balcony were shut down as people crammed into the already packed stadium. The closing night is always the best attended, and this year was no exception. Click on this first photo to enter into slideshow mode and then use your arrow keys to advance.

Folks I just stay in awe everytime I see your newsletter. That was an awesome event and I thank God for what He is doing in Brazil. Hopefully one day I will get to visit your ministry again. We love you all and continue to pray for an abundance harvest there.

God bless all of you,
