The popularity of the Assemblies of God Centennial services, held August 5-10, were unprecedented for any U.S. Assemblies of God event. Through broadcast, live-stream and simulcast, millions of people tuned in to view the services.

According to Africa's LMTV, more than 40 million viewers tuned in to watch its Centennial broadcasts, while the Spanish network, Unsión, broadcast reached viewers throughout Central and South America. The viewership of the Centennial special on TBN is not known, but TBN reaches millions of viewers each week.

In an effort to join AG churches thorughout the U.S. to the Sunday evening celebration, the Centennial finale featured a live simulcast. 

"We had more than 1,000 simulcast sites signed up to participate in Sunday evening's celebration service," Dr. George O. Wood, AG general superintendent, says. "This represented an estimated 50,000 participants in addition to the thousands in attendance and those watching by live-stream online."

And the popularity of the services continues. Since the conclusion of the Centennial, thousands of people have viewed or downloaded the services from the archived collection found on the 100.ag.org website.

"There has been a great interest in the archived messages," states Lucas Cornwell, media technology analyst at the AG national offices. "If people want to watch or share these videos, they can do so via the 100.ag.org website." 

Cornwell says that a few of the messages receiving strong interest include Sunday evening's concluding service with Dick Brogden, the presentation of The Human Right movement, and the message from South Korea General Superintendent Yong Mok Cho.

Cuban general superintendent's wife dies unexpectedly

Fri, 21 Dec 2012 - 9:56 AM CST

Dania Hunter, wife of Rev. Hector Hunter, the Assemblies of God general superintendent of Cuba for the past 16 years, died unexpectedly Tuesday.

According to AG World Missions reports, Dania Hunter was rushed to the hospital and a short time later, passed away.

"God has sovereignly been at work within the Assemblies of God throughout Cuba under the leadership of Hector and Dania Hunter," says Dick Nicholson, AGWM Latin America/Caribbean regional director. "Please hold the family up in prayer during this difficult time. Sister Dania will be greatly missed."

U.S. AG General Superintendent George Wood expressed his deep regard and sympathy for the Hunter family.

"Through the efforts of Hector and Dania Hunter, the gospel message has been transforming countless lives in Cuba," Wood says. "Their selfless ministry and service to Christ and the people of Cuba, despite difficult circumstances, is truly remarkable. I cannot imagine the family's pain at the loss of Dania, but I pray for the peace and presence of the Holy Spirit to be with them and comfort them."

In 2007, Dr. Wood spoke at the 61st General Council of the Assemblies of God of Cuba. He observed that the church was a vibrant and fast growing church with a heart for their nation.
