Tonight was crazy. Angels Stadium was so packed they had to shut the gates and no one else could come in. Every seat (47,000) was occupied. There was music by Relient K, the Katinas and Skillet. Greg preached a spot on message called, “The writing is on the wall” about the hand that showed up during Belshazzar’s party and warned of judgment to come. The response to the invitation was massive, 4,488 people made decisions for Christ! (check out the video at the end of this blog of those who came forward…it’s unbelievable to see.)
Before the message Greg interviewed Nick Vuijicic. He is 26 years old and was born without arms or legs. He has a powerful testimony of how he came to know the Lord and is a tremendous speaker and an evangelist. I have seen his video bio on youtube and It was really neat getting the chance to meet him back stage. Check out his website here: http://www.lifewithoutlimbs.org.
Here is a picture of Nick and me..

I enjoy getting to do events with skillet. They are super cool peeps. (when I start typing stuff like that I know it’s time to quit blogging and go to bed….I do have to get up in 5.5 hours and get a message together to teach too…must keep blogging 😉 Craziest moment of the night? Easy, during Skillet’s last song John jacked himself pretty bad jumping off the stage. He tweaked his foot and cut his hands up pretty good. He got so hyped up that he leapt before looking and didn’t realize how high up he was. What I really like about them is that they are totally behind the vision of Harvest Crusades and don’t just view it as another gig. They were passionate about those in the audience coming to know Christ. You don’t always see that kind of attitude and it is so refreshing when it’s there.
Here is a shot of Jennie and I with John and Corey Cooper from Skillet.
