What a wonderful festival that we saw on Sunday. After the Lebanese instrumental group played, Natalia came on stage to sing several songs in Greek, lifting the mood and adding to the Festival environment.
Afterwards Paul Lauer and Malcolm, from Malcolm it Loud both gave speeches about Vassula's new book and her latest art work called "Tender Father". The new art work was displayed for all to see during the festival, even though it was still a bit wet.
Claire Mansour had a lovely surprise for Vassula. Once God asked Vassula to sing but she responded saying that she did not have a voice to sing. So instead she and god wrote lyrics to a song called "Emmanuel's Somg". The surpirse...the song after so many years of being only lyrics now has music and was sung for all present.
Unfortunately Fr. Petar from Medjugorje could not join us during the festival but he did give us a letter to red out to all who came. The letter spoke of unity and conversion...something that touched the hearts of all present.
Finally it was time to hear from Vassula and what a lovely speech it was. Dynamic as always, Vassula spoke about Our Father and how loving he is, followed with what the messages had to say about Unity. Vassula concluded with getting everyone to join in and shout together that we are one, under one God. By the end you could feel that everyone present was truly one.
The festival concluded with a lively Celtic dance and music performance that left everyone clapping and wondering how they could dance and play instruments at the same time.
It was an wonderful Festival that was filmed by Telelumiere NOURSAT and will be aired on their news program over the next few days. At a later date the entire Festival will be shown on NOURSAT so that everyone can enjoy the Festival from home.

As we were about to board the plane I noticed that one of the passengers was reading the Heaven is Real book. So when the young lady was about to board the plane Vassula tells me to stop her. One is stop her I said "I see that you are reading Heaven is Real. Would you like to meet the author because she is right here." To say she was excited is putting it lightly. With great joy she had her book signed and informed us that she found out about the book from the four minute interview that aired that morning on WREG TV Channel 3! As soon as she got to the airport she bought and started reading the book.
But it would not be the last we spoke to this young woman. Once we landed in LA Vassula was greeted with warm hugs and bouquets of flowers and it was only when we started to tell the above story that we realised we forgot to do one important thing...tell her of the Festival that would happen that Sunday! Thankfully it did not take long to spot her in the corner charging her phone. Now she will be there Sunday with her friends.
In the morning we met with Pastor Ricky Floyd and his wife after a four minute TV interview at WREG Channel 3 morning program. As we were driving we had a childish joy that we were crossing the Mississippi River, something that we had never done before. It was not until we reached the country restaurant that we saw Arkansas souvenirs that we had to ask why we didn't see anything with Tennessee written on. The answer was simple...once we crossed the bridge we were in Arkansas!
During breakfast Pastor Floyd asked Vassula if she would speak to a few members of his ministry. Before we knew it Vassula was witnessing to a small group of people and answering questions. They were especially eager to hear about the Holy Spirit.
Our day was filled with witnessing. Our first stop was WREG where Marybeth Conely would interview Vassula for their weekly religious program.
Afterwards we left to go to TBN station where Pastor Ricky Floyd interviewed Vassula and spoke about the love of The Father and how approachable He is. The Holy Spirit's presence was felt by the pastor especially, so much so that he wanted to have breakfast the following day with Vassula and his wife.
In the evening we had dinner once again with the organizers and Vassula continued to witness to the small group.

In North Carolina just over a hundred people came to hear Vassula speak and we were all blessed to see a very spirited witnessing. Unfortunately our time in North Carolina was short but very sweat.
After the speech we immediately left to catch an airplane to Memphis, Tennessee. Here over a hundred people attended the witnessing including four clergy.
Once the speech finished we went to dinner with the organizers and the clergy. It was a wonderful sight to see everyone come together at one table.
