Speaking about the new things expected during this Year's celebration, He said "a new department – SOTERIA – will be launched for the first time during the 77 Hours Marathon Messiah’s Praise. Soteria is the prayer, evangelism and counseling unit of Marathon Messiah’s Praise where volunteers interested in prayer and evangelism join to share the gospel and pray during the programme. Also, for the past 4 weeks, an online prayer tagged UPPER ROOM has been holding every Tuesday to awaken everyone to the importance of prayers. This prayer gathering is broadcast online via Instagram and Facebook for many to tune in to and join the prayers.

All our volunteers will be provided with adequate accommodation and welfare while we depend on Jesus, the Light of the World for the security of lives and properties of all the participants as appropriate preparations will be put in place. Buses will also be made available to ease transportation within Redemption Camp".

The celebration is slated for February 25 to February 28 at the Youth Centre, Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Express Way while the venue and the schedule of ministration for the diaspora can be found on their website
