Benny Hinn recently conducted a healing crusade in India that drew one of the largest crowds ever. People came from all areas of the country February 13-15 in Bandra Kurla Complex in northwest Mumbai for an event called "Festival of Blessings." They came from other countries. They came for many reasons - some to witness this historic gathering, some for healing, some out of curiosity, and some to get answers to prayer and miracles. More than 1.3 million attended the first night services; 1. 5 million came by the second night. The crowd swelled to 2 million by the third and final service, making the final night's services the largest recorded in history for a healing service. Many notable officials attended.

This endeavor was massive on every scale. The complex covers 13 million square feet. Almost 200,000 chairs were brought in, exhausting the area rental suppliers. Technicians erected 32 giant video screens around the grounds. Parking for 100,000 cars was provided. Bus services came from Bandra, Sion, Kurla, and Santacruz railway stations. Police and three security agencies, along with 20,000 volunteers, kept everything running smoothly. According to ministry officials, government authorities were delighted that no police reports were filed during any of the services and that there were no reports of injuries associated with the event. Most importantly, hundreds of thousands left with newfound faith in Christ.

After the final service ended on Sunday, Benny Hinn asked, "Who can adequately describe what God has done here in India?" Benny has been in many large gatherings the past three decades, and he says, "There is nothing that could have prepared me for those moments when two million people raised their hands to the skies and began lifting their praise to the Lord." The crowd roared when Benny promised to return to India next year.
