Incredible seems too short a word to describe such an amazing night. WOTFC has the honor of helping to sponsor the Dallas, Night of Hope with Joel & Victoria Osteen of Lakewood Church on January 2nd. With a completely packed house, we were privileged to be a part of what God was doing in the American Airlines Center and in our city. As the day began, our volunteers helped in every way they could boldly wearing their lime green WOTFC shirts and helping make preparations for those who would attend. With all the excitement we were in awe of what was happening.
Lakewood Church worship team began the night with beautiful praise and throughout we heard Pastor Joel encourage the audience. Pastor Victoria fired them up with an encouraging moment and we were all touched by Pastor Joels family - his mother Dodi who was miraculously healed by God several years ago and his children Jonathon and Alexandria who participated through music. We were so proud to see our very own Pastor Eben giving the financial declaration over the city and you could tell there was a definite presence of God throughout the entire night.
Like nothing we have ever seen before, Pastor Joel gave the invitation for people to commit their lives to Christ and by the thousands, people everywhere all over the arena boldly put their hands up confessing Jesus as Lord. Almost the entire 25,000 people who were in attendance!! WOW. What a joy to see that and know we had a small part in helping God do this through the vision of Pastors Joel & Victoria. WOTFC loves Night of Hope and the Osteen family. Thanks to all who served!
