WOW!!! Did we have church this weekend or what? Inland Crusade started Friday night at a little after 7 PM. and ended Sunday night around 10:00 PM. Each service was powerful and packed with the people of God and lots and lots of visitors. Bro. Paul Bertram was a wild man and led us in anointed worship Friday and Saturday night. The mass choir sang and blessed the Lord in their worship on Friday and Saturday as well. Sunday night, Hermano Rivas, pastor of the Spanish work in Ontario, CA., led us in worship and song in both English and Espanol! Also, Sunday evening, the ILC Sanctuary Choir and the ILC Lighthouse Voices ministered with bilingual songs unto the Lord. Bro. Cody Marks was the Crusade speaker and he ministered with a mighty anointing!!!! What a time we had!
There were over 120 people filled with the Holy Ghost for the first time and many were baptized in Jesus' name!!!!!!! I don't know the number of backsliders that were refilled with the Holy Ghost but it was substantial! Friday and Saturday night we had over 30 young men from Teen Challenge attend the services. They were right up front and seemed to LOVE every second of the service! Many of them received the Holy Ghost! There were people who are in leadership of other denominal churches who attended and were greatly moved by what they heard and felt!!! I am claiming several of those churches in Rialto as daughter works of ILC!!!
I was so honored to be a part of this crusade and had a blast playing for each service!! Needless to say, this morning, I slept in!!!!! My kids were out of school and we all four slept until after 10 AM!!!!! It was HEAVENLY!!! I can't wait until Wednesday night to see how many of the ones that attended the crusade and had a life changing experience come back to hear more about the Lord!!!!
One of the things that was soooo neat was that there were many who came as a result of the advertising we did and they attended every service and the people of ILC bonded with them, can call them by name and know a little about their lives!!!! Also, Bro. Booker was so wise to tell the people who attended that if they lived in another city in the Inland Empire, had received something from God, and wanted to continue their walk, to be sure to check into whether there is a Pentecostal Apostolic Church in their city!!
I will keep you posted as to the "final count" of those who were filled or refilled and those who were baptized! Until we meet again, PRAY for the lost of this untoward generation and for REVIVAL to breakout all over the world!!!!!
