425,000 attend the final meeting – Isoko, Nigeria Crusade

Dear Mission-Partners,

Tonight was the climax of the Gospel Crusade here in Isokoland, Nigeria and what a glorious finale it was. The crowd was teaming with 425,000 people hungry to hear the Word of God! After the prayer for salvation we prayed for the crowd to receive the Baptism into the Holy Spirit and the Fire fell. As the deafening sound of the crowd speaking in tongues rose to heaven, I could hear the words of the prophet Joel resonating in my spirit, “In the last days, I will pour out my Spirit upon ALL FLESH.” What a glorious time we live in. These are the days that “many prophets and righteous men longed to see…”

Tonight the miracles were amazing. I am still in awe of what the Lord has done. You will read a couple of the testimonies in the “official” report below:

Dear Mission-Partners,

The Fire Conference climaxed today. Peter van den Berg and Daniel Kolenda ministered – and the Holy Spirit fell as described in Acts 2. Tens of thousands of God’s people received the power that Jesus spoke about in Acts 1:8. What glorious reality!

Crowd Grows to 225,000! – Isokoland Crusade Day 3

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Jan 23, 2009  /     Posted from Isokoland Nigeria  /     0 Comment

Dear Mission-Partners,

As you may know, all our Gospel Crusades are paired with a Fire Conference, in which church-workers are prepared for a life of effective witness for Jesus and for evangelism in general. This culminates in a massive outpouring of the Holy Spirit, in fulfillment of the Promise of the Lord. This morning was glorious. Thousands upon thousands of wonderful Christians were soaking up the Word of God. Our Mission is power, not routine. Our role is that of power men, laying the power lines into powerless lives. Then Jesus does the rest.

Beyond Belief – Day 2 in Isokoland, Nigeria

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Jan 23, 2009  /     Uncategorized  /     0 Comment

Dear Mission-Partners,

Today is DAY TWO in Isokoland/Nigeria. The venue is between two villages and people from both sides have to walk for many miles. When Chief Solomon Ogba, State Secretary of the PDP, Delta State, saw the huge crowd, he was thunderstruck. “This happens on a village-level”, he said, “it’s beyond belief.”

Tonight again the Gospel was powerfully proclaimed, with masses of people receiving Jesus as their personal Savior. Have a look at tonight’s crowd-picture. The Bible presents the gospel as the wisdom of God, the only saving truth. No man made it up, just as no man invented water. No philosopher ever conceived equal hope. Preaching the Gospel releases the saving power of God. Those who are dead in trespasses and sins hear it and are raised to new life – glory to God!

Dear Mission-Partners,

Our Gospel Crusade in Delta State/Nigeria, an obscure little place called ISOKOLAND, began tonight. 85,000 people showed up this very first meeting and God’s power of mercy and love exploded gloriously. A huge number of people received Jesus as their Savior! And then the miracles of healing followed. Look at the picture of the young man whose sister was delivered from madness of mind.

In Washington Before Obama

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Jan 17, 2009  /     Articles, Posted from Washington D.C.  /     1 Comment

I am sitting in the airport in Washington D.C. waiting for a connecting flight that will take me on to Nigeria for another Gospel Crusade (beginning on Wednesday the 21st). It is just 2 days before the presidential inauguration that will take place just a few miles from here, where an estimated 2 million people are expected to attend.

Barack Obama’s face is plastered EVERYWHERE I look. Posters, mannequins, books, pin-on buttons, and T-shirts are on sale in every shop…not to mention the complete Obama saturation of every news network being played here. It is obvious that there is an enormous swell of optimism surrounding this new administration, but I think it is so much more then that. To me, it seems as if people are looking to Obama as a Messiah…a savior of sorts; and for this reason I think I feel bad for him. How can any man live up to such unreasonable expectations? Proverbs 13:12 says, “Hope differed makes the heart sick…”
