A beautiful night for a Gracias Christmas Cantata, 2800 gather at Saenger Theater

New Orleans, LA—On Sunday, October 6th, Gracias Christmas Cantata Tour descended on its 8th stop, this time in the southern city of New Orleans, LA. A city in love with jazz, a city where families were torn apart from Hurricane Katrina in 2005. This beautiful place is where we performed the Christmas Cantata.

Up until today, the threat of another hurricane loomed over New Orleans. A disaster watch was placed over the entire city and it was all but imminent that the people would have to endure another devastating storm.

“Man, we have to go through another door?” “That’s why I told you we had to reserve the front row seats!”

People formed large crowds within the hall, trying to score the best seats for the performance.

When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans eight years ago, this was known as a place of pleasure, but the Gospel was weak. As this beautiful night comes to an end and the Gospel has been planted again, nothing can hold God back, not even hurricanes. We now press forward to Houston, TX.
