POTTSVILLE, PA - Local believer Raymond Avila surpassed his audacious Fitbit goal of 20,000 steps per day just twenty minutes into Sunday's service at Floods of Life Pentecostal Church, sources confirmed.
According to those present, Avila's energetic involvement in the first few songs of the service was a major factor in the achievement, as the man's wild gyrations, vigorous running man variants, and emphatic hand raising were converted into tens of thousands of steps by the small fitness device strapped around his wrist.
Avila's excited off-beat clapping, skillful ribbon dancing down the aisles, and flurry of seemingly random, spastic shaking of his favorite tambourine also contributed to the accomplishment.
"I knew the anointing was strong, but I had no idea what the Holy Ghost and I were accomplishing," an emotional Avila reportedly said in a spontaneous speech on the spot as his Fitbit indicated he had well surpassed his goal, interrupting the regularly scheduled chaos of the church service. "I claim this fitness victory in the name of Jesus!"
"I speak words of victory over each of your Fitbit goals!" he then cried out, causing the rest of the crowd to break out in a spontaneous worship song and hundreds of other believers to hit their fitness goals for the day.
