Approximately 30,000 people packed the Pascual Guerrero Olympic Stadium in Cali, Cauca Valley State, Colombia, on September 28 for an evangelistic outreach organized by the Casa de Oracion (House of Prayer) Church of the Nazarene.
A Smile for Cali is held each year during The Master’s Plan International Convention.
Danilo Montero and the House of Prayer band led a time of worship while pastors Adalberto Herra, Jorge Andres Marin, and Jose Ordoñez preached the Word of God. During an emotional moment, House of Prayer host pastor Nineye de Herra prayed for peace while she and a child released white doves and attendees in the grandstands released white balloons.
The event culminated with Ordoñez’ altar call. Thousands of hands were raised before the prayer of faith, and the 650 event organizers were once again surprised by the number of people who accepted Christ. Three thousand people registered their acceptance after the service, but it was estimated that a similar number gave their life to Christ and did not register.
