An evangelism tool called "Fete Des Amis" (celebration of friends) is a special time of fellowship for the church with their neighborhood. One small congregation recently had at least one hundred people packed into its building. There were several visitors to the next church service as a result.

There are four more "Fete Des Amis" events planned in the upcoming weeks. There is a deep stirring happening in the hearts of the pastors to evangelize their communities.

Reports from four regional conferences give a total of 996 attending daytime sessions and 1,821 attending the night services. Seventy-four received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, thirty-two were baptized in Jesus' name, and eighty-one were healed of various sicknesses. There was also a young man delivered from demons.

In the crusade services of one of the regional meetings, there was a crowd of over 1,000 visitors. This is an area where the church has been under strong spiritual attack and the saints have stood strong and believed in the delivering power of God.

At two Sunday School Seminars, twenty-five teachers were empowered to reach their children effectively.

At one church, four received the Holy Ghost, and the pastor also testified of being healed from the effects of several strokes. One of the missionaries preached at this church about "The Champion in Our Camp," and the church symbolically recreated a modern-day Jericho by marching around the outside of the building seven times to see their problems destroyed. One lady who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer testified that as she made the journey outside she felt pain, but by the time she returned inside the church the pain and lump were both gone.
