Prayer Vigil for Baby Easton

THANK YOU to everyone who came out last night to support the Friedel family and Baby Easton both in person and online. The event was a HUGE success.

We are so amazed to see this community gather together and rally around this family. Thank you so much to the pastors & the sounds guys & the band & the volunteers that helped make this Prayer Vigil a success. We appreciate what you do so much and are honored you were able to be with us.

This vigil was never to be about us, it was and always will be about what God wanted to do for Baby Easton and in the hearts and lives of those who chose to participate. We’re seeing God move in a major way and we’re excited to see how that plays out.

We encourage you to continue praying for Baby Easton and his family. Pray that he be healed. Pray against the disease. Pray for strength both for him and his family. Pray for Easton’s brothers and family. Pray for a miracle so big that the ONLY explanation is God!  We are believing and standing strong on His promises.

One thing Pastor Sean said last night was that he hopes that the park we prayed in last night, Market Street Park, becomes known as the place that people go to pray. That the beautiful water that flows through there be a symbol of the living water that only Jesus can provide.

I believe our community has seen a burst of hope and faith tha has changed it in ways we could never have imagined. As my husband put it “Auburn, NY will simply never be the same after last night. Never. God is truly in this place.”

Thank you Jesus for all that you have done and are doing.

A testimony from the event last night:

“I talked to someone tonight at the prayer vigil that told me before they came they really weren’t sure if they believed in God. Their exact words: “The power and presence of God was so real tonight at this prayer vigil that it’s impossible for me to leave here and not believe.” THAT my friends is what ONLY God can do :)” – Campus Pastor, Sean Wrench

“I keep thinking about that moment where 500 people all screamed out at the same time, “We love you Baby Easton”. What an incredible moment.” – Campus Pastor, Sean Wrench
