Power from on High in North Carolina Crusade!

post by Daniel Kolenda on September 19th, 2014

We truly experienced a move of the Holy Spirit this weekend! Our Reinhard Bonnke Gospel Crusade in Greensboro, North Carolina has just finished and once again we saw hundreds of churches join together across denominational lines to rally around the foot of the cross.

Over the two nights, nearly 15,000 people joined together in prayer and worship and were touched by the Word of the Lord. Each night, hundreds of people streamed to the altars to make a decision to follow Jesus as Savior after hearing the red hot Gospel message preached by Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. What a joy to see so many people move from darkness into light! Our team is busy even now working to connect these precious people into the participating local churches for follow-up and discipleship.

On Saturday night, power from on high was on full display as Evangelist Daniel Kolenda prayed for every person in attendance to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Many testified of being healed instantly during times of healing prayer. God truly is moving across America. Thank you tremendously for praying and standing with us as we believe and endeavor for America to be saved. Your continued support is so appreciated as we prepare for our next Gospel Crusade in the city of Houston on February 20th and 21st.

Breakthrough! – Kigali, Rwanda – Final Day

September 1st, 2014

As you might have gathered from my emails, we had a number of challenges in Kigali, including adverse weather conditions, that made it an unusually difficult week. We continued to press through however, and many of you were praying fervently for us. The last meeting was a huge breakthrough. First of all, the weather forecast was calling for a 90% chance of rain, and given the pattern we’d experienced throughout the week, it seemed a washout was certain. But not one drop of water fell on the crusade grounds. The crowd more than doubled from the previous night. One by one, it seemed as if the Lord gave us victory in each of the many areas where there had been resistance. Praise the Lord!

It was a packed night. Because we had been forced to shorten Saturday’s meeting (due to rain), we made up for it tonight. I asked one of the graduates from the Reinhard Bonnke School of Evangelism who was also born in Rwanda, to share her testimony for 10 minutes. I then preached the Gospel, prayed with the new converts, taught on the baptism into the Holy Spirit, and prayed for the people to receive the baptism. Then Todd White (who is visiting), prayed for the sick and took testimonies. Many wonderful healings took place. Then we prayed over boxes full of prayer requests (many of you sent requests), prayed for the nation, and prayed for a blessing on the people of Kigali. Whew! It was a full, blessed, and glorious night.


Beauty for Ashes – Kigali, Rwanda – Day 3

August 30th, 2014

We’ve just returned from the field – soaking wet! In spite of the cold rain and lightning, the people came. They stayed, and many were saved and healed.

Preaching in the rain is never our first choice, but there was a “silver lining” this time. Next door, a large sporting event was taking place in the national open-air stadium. Thousands of people came out of the stadium to find shelter and were standing in range of our speakers where they could hear the Gospel. I pray the Lord touched many of their lives.

Before I preached tonight, I asked one of my apprentices and fellow evangelist, Daniel Mironichenko, to share his heart with the people. He did a wonderful job setting the stage for the main message.


Abounding Grace – Kigali, Rwanda – Day 1

August 28th, 2014

Tonight our Gospel Crusade began here in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. This is the city where the Rwandan genocide began 20 years ago. The scars of that tragedy still remain and the memories are vivid in the minds of the people. The spiritual ground seems a bit tougher here than usual. It reminds me a little bit of our crusade in Gulu, Uganda where Joseph Kony had conducted his reign of terror. Yet, in these places, where unimaginable evil has prevailed, there seems to be a special grace that “abounds all the more.” I believe that the Lord has sent us here for a very specific reason. We will see an extraordinary outpouring of the Holy Spirit’s power and love this week.


Miami Crusade Report

July 22nd, 2014

America is being saved! I am excited to share with you the results from the Reinhard Bonnke Gospel Crusade that took place this weekend in Miami, Florida at the American Airlines Arena. Over the two nights, 15,000 people attended the powerful meetings and 1,835 people made a decision to follow Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! Praise the Lord for this mighty harvest of souls.

Each night, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke preached crystal-clear Gospel messages and the floors were absolutely packed with people coming forward to respond. On Saturday night, the venue staff had to close down the venue floor due to the overwhelming response to the call to salvation! (…continued)


The Decision Card Count Is In: Bujumbura, Burundi

July 10th, 2014

We’ve received the decision card count from Burundi, where our campaign was just held in the capital city of Bujumbura. In total there were 313,550 precious individuals that gave their lives to Jesus! We continue to pray for the local churches as they are diligently working with the new converts to make disciples.

Thank you for standing shoulder to shoulder with us in our soul-winning work. In just a few days we will be in Miami, Florida for our next Gospel crusade. Then we will be back in Africa, in Kigali, Rwanda. Thank you for continuing to pray for us. The work goes on. (…continued)


Drunk Children – Bujumbura, Burundi – Final Day

June 8th, 2014

We’ve just returned from the State House where the President of Burundi lives with his family. Our team was invited to be their special guests after tonight’s Gospel meeting. We had another full service. There was wonderful worship, I preached a Gospel message, gave an invitation for salvation, and we prayed for the President and his top government officials who were all present. I’ve never seen anything quite like it before. They truly fear the Lord and desire to serve Him.

Tonight’s final meeting, of this Gospel Crusade, was an amazing success. The only difficulty that we had was the size of the crowd. There were so many people that were pressed onto that field. I was concerned, at certain points, that someone would suffocate. We removed the barriers so that the people could fill all the available space in front of the platform. As you can see from the pictures, the platform looked like a raft floating on an ocean of humanity! (…continued)


A Presidential Worship Leader – Bujumbura, Burundi – Day 3

June 7th, 2014

This morning was the final meeting of the Fire Conference here in Bujumbura, Burundi. By the time Peter van den Berg finished preaching in the first session, the people were filled with faith and expectation. A massive outpouring of the Holy Spirit followed in both the Fire Conference and in the evening crusade meeting.

Tonight, the crowd grew to 150,000 people! The President of Burundi honored us, by attending and opening the meeting. He even proceeded to lead the crowd in some worship with his wife. It’s the first time I’ve been in a meeting where the worship leader was the President!

After the preaching of the Gospel and praying for the sick, we heard many wonderful testimonies. These testimonies included (…continued)


7 Per Square Meter! – Bujumbura, Burundi – Day 2

June 6th, 2014

Tonight the crowd grew to more than 100,000 people here in Bujumbura, Burundi. The crowd at the front of the field was packed so tightly that it looked like no one could move. Peter van den Berg said there were up to 7 people per square meter! It seems that the whole city is coming to the meetings. Even the Fire Conferences (that take place each morning), have been attended by high ranking government officials, including (…continued)


A Full “Snake Pit” – Bujumbura, Burundi – Day 1

June 5th, 2014

Tonight, our evangelistic crusade began with more than 70,000 people in attendance! There is an electricity in the air. The whole city of Bujumbura is buzzing with anticipation. I’m sure this will be a historic week for the nation of Burundi.

Tonight, as always, I preached a simple and clear message of salvation to which tens of thousands responded enthusiastically. As we were praying for the sick, demons began to manifest all over the field. I had not preached about deliverance, or prayed for the demonized, but the “snake pit” (where our counselors cast the demons out) was filled. Afterwards, amazing miracles took place. Some of them are listed below (…continued)

CfaN Fire Conference 2014

Defining Moments in Birmingham, U.K.

May 12th, 2014

I am writing this email as I sit on the plane flying home from the Fire Conference in the UK. The meetings were amazing. We heard so many testimonies of lives changed. I already told you about the salvations and hundreds of healings that took place spontaneously on Friday night (we had about 200 people come forward with testimonies).

On Saturday afternoon, as we prayed for every single delegate one by one, tears came to my eyes on several occasions as I witnessed how people were being so mightily touched by the Holy Spirit. It took me back to my teenage years when I encountered raw tangible presence for the first time and I remembered how life changing it had been for me. (…Continue)
