INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS

UPDATES & INFORMATION

March 2008

ATTENTION ALL INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS DELEGATES

FROM THE DESK OF ELDER WILLIAM WILKINS, JR., INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS PRESIDENT:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity…”

—Jeremiah 29—

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the author and finisher of our faith!

The International Congress is 14 days away and we have carefully planned a wonderful program to ensure that our delegates are spiritual enriched and comfortable. We must prepare our hearts and minds to receive the blessings that will be bestowed upon us in Detroit. With this in mind, I have asked you to be on one accord with the International Congress staff in prayer and fasting. I am asking that every delegate participate in ten days of consecration leading up to the International Congress. The fast will begin on Palm Sunday, March 16, 2008 and end on Tuesday, March 25, 2008. During this time I am asking that you concentrate yourselves, giving God the freedom to move among his people.In addition to the consecration, the Congress will host a PRE-CONGRESS REVIVAL beginning at 7pm nightly on Sunday, March 23rd and ending Tuesday evening, March 25th at Solomon’s Temple, 2341 East 7 Mile Road, Detroit, MI. Our very own CHIEF APOSTLE WILLIAM L. BONNER will run the three day revival and we are anticipating an over-flow of the anointing and presence of God.

Our Evangelistic team will also arrive in Detroit one week prior to the Congress. This team will strategically minister on the street corners and in a variety of sin stricken venues in order to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. They will compelling them to give their lives to Christ as well as joining us in our worship services where there lives will never be the same. It is our intention not to just have a shouting good time, but to see souls saved, delivered and set free by the power of the Holy Ghost.

Please join us in preparing the way by eating one meal a day or participating in the Daniel fast (no meats or sweets). My prayer is that every service, workshop, song, preacher and recreational activity be filled with the presence of God.

I look forward to seeing you in Detroit with the expectation of receiving what God has for you!

May God richly bless you and give you safe travels.

Yours Servant,

Elder William Wilkins, Jr.
