Evangelist Luis Palau draws 425,000 in two days in Guatemala City

A two-day evangelistic festival drew an estimated 425,000 people to Parque de la Democracia in Guatemala's capital city, capping a 10-day regional campaign led by evangelist Luis Palau and setting the stage for a month-long community service effort involving tens of thousands of volunteers.

The March 13-14 festival drew Guatemala's president, first lady, vice president and three ministers of state, according to a statement from the Luis Palau Evangelistic Association. A total of 3,200 Guatemalan churches invited Palau to hold the campaign, which involved 25 outreach events. Local leadership included Danilo Pérez, president of the Evangelical Alliance of Guatemala. Hundreds of local pastors and more than 25,000 volunteers worked on grassroots organization for the campaign.
