Found this link on Adrian Warnock’s blog. There was a lot to be thankful for over the weekend at the Easter services at Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Washington USA—a remarkable account.
Mars Hill Pastor Mark Driscoll Reports:
Something broke this weekend, spiritually. I’m not sure how to explain it, but God’s favor was evident everywhere. … We had at least 11,718 people altogether this weekend, somewhere near 200 baptisms yesterday alone, and are still trying to figure out how many people got saved. My children loved seeing all the new converts and baptisms yesterday…

Yesterday while singing with the congregation at each of the five services I preach live, I could not stop weeping. People were singing loudly with their hands in the air. They cheered all day as people came forward to give their lives to Jesus and be baptized.
The pastors were up front laying hands on people, praying over them, and leading them to Christ by the dozens at every service. I stood off to the side during the singing to watch what God was doing and multiple people walked up to me weeping and asked me to pray with them to become a Christian.
…And I only got to see a fraction of what God was doing.
