Internet Department: Looking Back On 2007
In many ways, 2007 was a record year for reach and response through our various websites. Our primary US websites were visited 1,763,015 times in 2007. Those visitors downloaded a total of 9,727,286 pages, not counting telecasts, sermons, and booklets from these websites. Over the past year we have averaged 80,488 unique visitors per month. In June we reached a major milestone with Google – over 1,000,000 visitors to our site as a direct result of our AdWords campaigns. It took 5 years and 4 days to reach this milestone with Google. God has greatly blessed our efforts on the Internet and as He continues to open doors and guide us forward, our reach and impact will continue to grow.

Television Department: Milestone Reached
We are happy to report that this past week’s response pushed our annual worldwide TV total over 200,000. This is the first time for the Tomorrow’s World television program to generate 200,000 responses in a year’s time. To add a little perspective to this, it took the Work’s first four years and three months to bring in the first 200,000 responses! The television program’s worldwide response has grown at an average annual rate of 22 percent per year over the past eight years. We thank God and Jesus Christ for this tremendous growth. It is a great way to end the calendar year of 2007.

As of 11/09/07, our member files now show more than 2,600 baptisms from all sources in our
LCG probably has the highest percentage of people baptized in the past 9 years of any COG. And the highest number of people baptized who did not have a prior COG background.
