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!
After the prayer for the sick numerous miracles happened. One young man, mute for 26 years suddenly discovered he could speak. A mad woman was instantly healed and testified with astounding clarity of mind. Many cripples were also healed including the one in the above picture who fell in a well and broke his leg 2 years ago. Since that time he had been unable to walk until Jesus healed him tonight. Like the lame man in Acts 3:8 he went walking and leaping and praising God.
When looking at these dear people, compassion grips us. Compassion must be preached with compassion and love with love – “sincere love,” as set out in the evangelists’ charter in 2 Corinthians 6. We are determined to continue this ministry alongside the Lord of the Harvest, our blessed Lord Jesus Christ, and together with you. Please continue to pray for a Blood-Washed Africa.
Yours forever in Jesus,
Evangelists Daniel Kolenda and Reinhard Bonnke
With the whole CfaN Crusade-Team.
