Weeks 9. Sin has weight. Every time we commit sin in thoughts, words and deeds are transformed into heavy baggage that we carry around our daily lives. The accumulated weights, for Christians, a metamorphosis of a brick that akin to sin are heavy and hollow - meant to be extinguished and destroyed. Infusing new element that is different from the methods of most Churches but relevant and appealing to the younger generation today, the World Impact Tour brought the international group Team Xtreme to Tagum City as performers (crushing piles of bricks, bending bars, pulling huge vehicles, ect.) and at the same time evangelists in one of the 3 nights staging of the tour.
