Despite that fact that officials of the stadium in Quito scheduled a soccer game for the same night as the 21-23 September 2006 Franklin Graham Festival was to start, more than fourteen thousand people gave their lives to Christ at the crusade. Although the stadium officially seats forty-six thousand people, more than fifty-one thousand people attended the event on the last night. It was the largest evangelistic gathering in the history of Quito. Total attendance of the event was 140,000 people. (Billy Graham Evangelistic Association)
