The Adventists leaders and members in Pakistan have said that a three-day evangelistic meet held from Oct. 26 to 28 marked a change in the predominantly Muslim country as more than 2000 people attended the event.

The event, held at Pakistan Adventist Seminary & College (PASC) located 60 kilometers west of Lahore, was the largest of its kind in recent years and yielded remarkable results.

"We were expecting 800 to 1000 people to attend these meetings. More than 1000 people alone were praying for these meetings in Korea," said Iffikhar Saroya, communication director of the Pakistan Union.

Saroya said the organizers didn't expect that huge response and they hurried to find extra seating to accommodate the unexpectedly large crowd.

Michael Ditta, Pakistan Union Section (PKU) president asked the attendees "to watch, pray and remain steadfast in the last days."

On the last day of the event, 156 people were baptized, according to Adventist Review.

"There was a prayerful sense of unity," said Saroya.

There were prayer sessions for the sick, demon-possessed and childless.

Local church members and leaders had volunteered to make the event successful.
