Afterward, the empowering message of God through Pastor Sam Ferriol brought about an outpour of rejuvenation and restoration the spirits of the attendees as he stressed on how God has been faithful to His children and how Ho Chi Minh City locale contributes to the continuing success of global evangelism. The celebration continued throughout the night as they hosted a gospel concert and raffle draw for the brethren.
