It was an awesome site to see 10,200 men and women from over 200 countries worshipping and learning together! The place was the RAI Convention center in Amsterdam Netherlands, and the occasion was the Billy Graham Conference for preaching evangelists.
Saturday I met The Reverend Paul Doe from the Ivory Coast in Africa. He is the Academic Dean of an Assembly of God Bible College and has a vital ministry to couples on courtship, marriage, missions and theology. His wisdom and insight was refreshing and his invitation to come and minister is one I will sincerely pray about!
Tuesday the Assemblies of God Evangelists from over 35 countries met for a time of fellowship. It was a delight to hear what God is doing around the world and encourage each other! There were about 1,000 Assembly of God men and women in attendance here at Amsterdam 2000. I'm the short white lady in the middle of the second row!
