Update, 1/5/11, 9:50 pm cst: Word from Louie Giglio is that the total giving for Passion 2011 Atlanta was $1.1 million. God is awesome–and I really mean that word–AWE toward God.
I’m not sure of the final results at Passion 2011 Atlanta, but here’s Louie Giglio’s Monday night update on goals for worshiping with generosity.
- Atlanta — 15,140 towels, 72,000 pairs of socks for homeless shelters. Students were asked to bring these things with them because it shouldn’t happen that Atlanta not be blessed by 23,000 Christian people gathering there. As a result of these same kinds of gifts in 2010, this year some of the local homeless men were helping out at Passion 2011 and were doing prayer walks on our behalf.
- Colombia — Goal: 20,000 bibles goal for unreached people. As of Monday night, 27,427Bibles @$1 each

Louie Giglio: “It’s awesome when there are people with loads of money, but we don’t have to depend on them. Together we are a force for good. We have set before you a 1/2 million goal in 4 days. Right now on Monday, we are at 3 days and so far you have given 733,700.”
