NAYC Friday Service

The Friday Night Service Report:
  • You can purchase CDs ($10) or DVDs ($20) for the NAYC services from Media Missions. She's gonna kill me, but you can email your requests here.
  • I'm told registration was over 12,000 people, which is comparable to Charlotte in 2007.
  • How the local newspaper sees us.
  • Congrats to the 3 Apostolic Talent Search Groups: Encounter of Stockton, CA was the group winner, Ashley Wicker (?) from North Carolina, and Kelton in the guy's group. Sorry for the sketchy info. Someone help me out here!
  • Congrats to the heroic group of about 60 teens who counted ballots frantically in small hot rooms behind the stage to make sure the winners could be announced at the start of service.
  • We're going to have an in-depth interview about Project 22:39 with coordinator Heidi Urshan (see picture) next week at The postive reports were overwhelming, with over 450 people involved in afternoon witnessing and aid events.
  • The Afterburner Mall event sold 6,000 tickets. Most people changed clothes after service to before leaving. It took me 6 minutes (it doesn't sound very long, but try it sometime) to get an elevator and then we had 15 people crammed into it.
  • The MK (Missionary Kid) booth was a raging success. More on that in one of our regular issues of ninetyandnine.

  • Doors opened at 6 p.m.
  • The floor was full at 6:08 p.m.
  • The lower tier was full by 6:40 p.m.
  • There were more people in the hallways until the preaching started, then the emptied again. There were around 17,000 people there. (Again, no one was in the box seats. There are 30 x 12 seats each.) IMHO, it wasn't much larger than Thursday night. Perhaps the locals were scared from attending due to sell-out expectations?
  • A reliable source told me that an adult woman had a heart attack during the preaching, but was doing okay.
