"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!" -Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

This week is mine and Adam's Spring Break...so we unfortunately weren't able to go to Elevation's pivotal Easter service. Thankfully, we were updated on twitter and Elevation's website of all the exciting things that went on that day. If you were unaware, there were over 11,500 people in attendance, 700+ salvations, and 18,000+ donations given to different outreach programs Elevation partners with. Words can't describe the impact that was placed on the city of Charlotte that day and it was all done for the glory of God. People always seem to ask, "why are y'all all about the numbers?"...well, I'm glad you asked! Yes, we are completely stoked about the numbers...every number represents a story and every number is a life changed. Isn't our purpose as Christians is to grow and expand His Kingdom? Well then, of course, you HAVE to be all about the numbers! Praise God there were over 700 salvations that day! There were even more all around the city that should be talked about and broadcasted! The Lord is at work in Charlotte and I am blessed to be apart of such a bold and audacious movement that's shaking our city! If you want to read more about Easter Sunday, click here. I hope everyone had an amazing Easter and I pray that we all recognize what Christ did for us everyday of our lives and remember that we worship a Risen King! I'll leave you with a cute picture of Leah and Adam representing Elevation in spirit!

I liked the post! And your comments about "numbers" - sometimes people don't like when ministries or churches include numbers. But I once heard Greg Laurie say that even Jesus was concerned about numbers. How else can we explain how his disciples included numbers of people present at their "gatherings"? Pretty cool.
