Story number 4 for 6 Mar 2003

By March 6, 2003

(USA)–Meanwhile, Christians are being asked to pray for an incredible outreach in the United States. The Luis Palau Evangelistic Association is holding “Beachfest” March 22nd and 23rd. LPEA’s Kevin Palau says thousands will participate. “Based on the number of churches, which is the most we’ve ever had, the number of volunteers and counselors, the most we’ve ever had, we expect it to be the largest U-S festival we’ve ever had. And, up until now in Seattle, Washington last August we had over 150,000 people that came over two days, so I guess our hope would be that we would have more than that.” While the music festival is originating in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Palau says the event will be seen all around the country. “We’re going to be taking that Music Festival all across the country, via about 1,400 radio stations, Trinity Broadcasting will be carrying it that day, and then up to 500 cities will be having their own beach parties via satellite, so it’s really the first time to take this festival all across the nation.”
