SATURDAY: OCTOBER 5, 2019

Day 1 of CityFest East Texas was powerful! More than 12,500 people joined us in The Square in Downtown Tyler, Texas for a wonderful night of great music and Good News. The program included a Family Fun Zone, Action Sports (with help from our good friends The Stunt Dudes), and a tons of great musicians on the main stage (including Blanca, Ryan Stevenson, and Newsboyz United).

Andrew Palau shared a powerful Gospel message and led hundreds of individuals in personal commitments to follow Jesus Christ. We were also thrilled to have more than 40k people watch the festival LIVE via a livestream on Facebook and Palau.org.

Praise the Lord with us and enjoy this video and some photos from the day.

It was another great day here in East Texas! Thanks for your prayers! Here are a few notes and photos from the day’s events:

  • Andrew was welcome at LeTourneau University this morning and was asked to speak to the entire student body. He taught from Mark 2 (the paralyzed man) and shared his testimony.

  • Wendy shared the Good News with more than 800 ladies at the women’s luncheon. Check out this great story from the local newspaper, complete with the clear Gospel presentation from Wendy: https://tinyurl.com/y68m6hjn

  • The CityFest Buckout was a huge success! Attendance was estimated at 5,000 people. Both Andrew and Phil Robertson (Duck Commander) shared the Good News.

We’re excited for the men’s luncheon tomorrow and the festival this weekend!

SUNDAY: SEPTEMBER 29, 2019

CityFest East Texas is off to a great start! Andrew and the prison team arrived on Friday night and went into a local treatment center on Saturday morning. We had about 500 inmates join us, both men and women. The inmates were very excited to have us and 125 indicated a decision for Jesus Christ! 

Then, on Saturday night, a special outreach for Spanish-speakers - Fiesta Latina - saw more than 2,500 people in attendance. Many thousand more tuned in via Facebook Live. The event featured music from Marisol Park and Tercer Cielo and Andrew gave a clear Gospel presentation. More than 195 people responded to the message by filling out a decision card or texting in their decision.

More than 400 churches are on board for the festival and we’re excited that we have two sold out evangelistic luncheons this week.

Below are a few photos from the events this weekend.

CityFest East Texas with Andrew Palau is focused on proclaiming the Good News and celebrating the increased service in the last year to the communities of East Texas. The campaign has been about encouraging unity and collaboration across all communities, denominations, and ethnicities. Thousands of volunteers from churches, businesses, and organizations came together to meet tangible needs across the region. We’re excited to come together in unity, service, and proclamation showing the community at large the joy, peace, love, and grace of Jesus Christ.

Below is a list of the week's events, so you can follow along and pray specifically:

  • September 28 - Fiesta Latina (Spanish outreach)

  • September 28-29 - Prison Outreaches

  • October 2 - Ladies' Luncheon

  • October 2 - CityFest Buckout (bucking bulls, broncs, BBQ, and the Good News!)

  • October 3 - Men's Luncheon

  • October 5-6 - CityFest East Texas (in the heart of Tyler, Texas)

Thank you for all you do. We love your heart for the lost, your passion for the Lord, and your commitment to the Gospel. It’s a joy to link arms with you – in East Texas and all around the world.

We’ll keep you updated here on how God moves powerfully throughout East Texas!
