    Wow the festival was a huge success. I had the privilege of being able to work as an usher at the Festival and what I saw during that weekend was incredible. 3 of my friends were accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and my heart was filled with joy as I saw hundreds going down to accept Jesus into their hearts. May God continue to bless this ministry and may many more come to know Christ as their Savior. God bless you BGEA. Dios los bendiga!
