The Decision Card Count is in! – Freetown, Sierra Leon

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Apr 30, 2012  /     Crusade Photos, Posted from Freetown Sierra Leone  /     2 Comments

We’ve received the wonderful report that 301,790 people returned completed decision cards at our most recent campaign in Freetown, Sierra Leone indicating that they have made a decision to follow Jesus. These individuals have now been entered into our follow up system and local churches will be overflowing with new converts.

Thank you for standing with us to make this campaign possible. We are now trusting the Lord for the finance for our next campaign in Uganda. Please continue to pray with us that every need would be met.

He is Risen Indeed – Freetown, Sierra Leone – Day 5

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Apr 09, 2012  /     Crusade Photos, Posted from Freetown Sierra Leone  /     9 Comments

The final meeting of our Gospel Campaign here in Freetown, Sierra Leone has just come to a close and we are rejoicing. The stadium bleachers were packed tonight and the stadium workers were forced to open the gates so thousands could overflow onto the grass (which they originally told us they were unwilling to do).

I spoke about the resurrection of Jesus and it’s unparalleled significance. “And if Christ be not raised” Paul said, “your faith is vain and you are yet in your sins.” (I Cor. 15:17) Without the resurrection the crucifixion would have been just an execution. But the good news is this, “Now is Christ risen from the dead and become the first fruits of them that slept.” Miracles, salvations, healings, and deliverances like the ones that took place tonight bear witness to this wonderful reality – that He is risen indeed!

An Amazing Story – Freetown, Sierra Leone – Day 4

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Apr 08, 2012  /     Crusade Photos, Posted from Freetown Sierra Leone  /     2 Comments

Today I spoke to a man with an amazing story. He attended our first crusade in Sierra Leone in 1991 accidently. He came from a Muslim family, but he was not religious. In fact he was a drug addict, an alcoholic and a fornicator. He had no exposure to Christianity and had never heard the Gospel, but he was a football fan. He used to come to the national stadium quite often to watch his favorite team play and one night, when he saw that a huge crowd had packed into the venue he decided to see what was going on. He stumbled into the meeting drunk and high, but he said the moment he entered the stadium he felt something he had never felt before. The hair on his arm stood up and he had goose bumps all over. Suddenly he became sober. He heard Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke preach the Gospel and surrendered his life to Christ. (…Continued)

A Good Friday – Freetown, Sierra Leone – Day 3

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Apr 06, 2012  /     Crusade Photos, Posted from Freetown Sierra Leone  /     4 Comments

Tonight at the campaign here in Sierra Leone, I preached about the power in the blood of Jesus. Thousands heard the Gospel and received Jesus as Savior and Lord. I can’t think of a better way to spend Good Friday than this. We didn’t just talk about the cross, we experienced it’s power first hand.

Tomorrow morning will be the last meeting of the Fire Conference. Please pray with us for a mighty outpouring that will impact the whole nation.

The Tide is Rising – Freetown, Sierra Leone – Day 2

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Apr 06, 2012  /     Posted from Freetown Sierra Leone  /     6 Comments

The national stadium was filled tonight with 60,000 people hungry for the Word of God. I preached the Gospel, prayed for the sick and Jesus did the rest:

A woman who had been terribly sick for two years was taken to the hospital where they diagnosed her several life threatening illnesses including malaria, typhoid fever, tuberculosis and HIV Aids. The doctors said that there was no hope for her and they sent her home to die. She came to the meeting tonight on deaths doorstep knowing that this was her last hope. (…Continued)

A Defining Moment – Freetown, Sierra Leone – Day 1

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Apr 05, 2012  /     Crusade Photos, Posted from Freetown Sierra Leone, reinhard bonnke  /     3 Comments

We have just returned from the first meeting here in Freetown, the capital city of Sierra Leone. I believe that this campaign is more than a few good evangelistic meetings. This week will be a prophetic and historic defining moment for the nation.

Earlier today we paid a courtesy visit to the state president and formally invited him to the crusade (see attached picture). Tonight he attended the meeting in the national stadium along with members of his family. Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke preached a crystal clear Gospel message and when he gave the altar call many thousands responded. We also heard wonderful testimonies of miraculous healings and we are rejoicing! (…Continued)
