Global Day of Prayer – Thank You!

GDOP

Dear All,

Thank you so much for joining us in the 2018 Global Day of Prayer (GDOP).

Praise the Lord for a wonderful time of worship and we are really blessed for the opportunity to pray with brothers and sisters at ExxonMobil.  Even though we were challenged by technical difficulties, God is with us and many were touched by the prayers from all the different nations and cultures.

This year, several new sites such as Tangerang Indonesia and Bogota Colombia have joined us and we are excited to have 700+ contacts on our devotional distribution list and over 350 people from more than 40 sites participated in the GDOP.  Below you will find all the selfies from our fellow believers around the world (Do keep the selfies coming!). 🙂

We want to thank Tom Schuessler and Alicia Foo for taking time from their busy schedules to be part of the GDOP.  In addition, a special thanks to our faithful GDOP Team who coordinate the global event, putting the materials together and setting up the local meetings.  Regional leads, please forward this email to all the site leads and let’s continue to keep in touch and encourage one another.

We have also received great feedback to continue improving the event and please don’t hesitate to share your suggestions with us.

See you in GDOP 2019!
