Kong preached to them a practical message, “What to do when you don’t know what to do”, which was very well-received by the members. There were a total of four services, the first one for the leaders and staff of YFGC on Friday night followed by the Sunday morning service, YFGC Young Adult service and finally ending off with the YFGC International Service. Every service had an atmosphere which was very lively and full of expectancy.
The main highlight of this trip was the Prayer Rally in the Seoul World Cup Stadium, where about 100,000 leaders and members of the YFGC came together to pray for the world. The atmosphere was very powerful, with 100,000 people believing together for God to move mightily in their midst.
During the prayer meeting, Dr. Yonggi Cho, founder of YFGC, encouraged all the members to keep on seeking God and also to pray for peace in the world.

Another highlight of the Prayer Rally was the President of the Republic of Korea, Lee Myung-Bak, addressing them in a video clip. He thanked them for their prayers and encouraged them saying that he also gets up at 5a.m. in the morning, as well, to pray.
Eric Soo, personal assistant to Kong, described the atmosphere of the prayer meeting as “Awesome! Especially when 100,000 people shouted to God in prayer in unison.”
Next year, Kong will be taking another team of 300 to YFGC for another study trip. The trip will be held from 4 to 7 January 2010.
