We’ve just received a wonderful report from Cotonou, Benin where we held a Gospel Campaign three weeks ago. 251,258 decision cards were counted from the five days of meetings! That makes a grand total of 2,171,008 that have testified to having made a decision to follow Jesus in 2012. Praise the Lord!

Thank you to all of you who played a part in making this amazing harvest possible with your prayers and finances. You are impacting souls for eternity. We honor you and thank the Lord for you.

The Greatest Gift – Cotonou, Benin – Day 5

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Dec 10, 2012  /     Crusade Photos, Posted from Cotonou Benin  /     2 Comments

Tonight was the final meeting of the final crusade of 2012. It’s hard to believe that another year of Gospel Campaigns has come to an end. This year we have been in Burkina Faso, Sierra Leone and Liberia, twice in Uganda, Ethiopia and now Benin. In order to meet the unique logistical challenges we had to split our equipment into two separate sets and place one in the east and one in the west. Along the way were many dangers, toils and snares, but God gave us grace, you stood with us, our team worked very hard and in all, more than 2-million people professed faith in Christ. What a mighty God we serve! (…Continued)

The River is Flowing – Cotonou, Benin – Day 4

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Dec 09, 2012  /     Crusade Photos, Posted from Cotonou Benin  /     0 Comment

This morning Rev. Peter van den Berg and I ministered to the pastors and church leaders at the final meeting of the Fire Conference. The way that the people received was so precious. It was simple. It was easy. It was all Jesus. At first they were silent. And then it began – all over the field pent up fountains began bursting forth and soon the whole crowd was swimming in a river of Holy Spirit unction. It was wonderful.

This week evangelist Eric Gilmour has been ministering each night before the Crusade begins. He has been teaching on faith and ministering to the sick. God has been using him in a mighty way and literally hundreds, perhaps even thousands, have raised their hands indicating that a miracle has taken place in their bodies this week. All the glory goes to Jesus. (…Continued)

The Snake Pit Was Full! – Cotonou, Benin – Day 3

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Dec 08, 2012  /     Crusade Photos, Posted from Cotonou Benin  /     4 Comments

The nation of Benin is known as, “The Cradle of Voodoo.” According to some statistics, more than 70% of the people (of all different religions) practice animism and ancestral worship. For thousands of years, Satan has had free reign in this nation and has inflicted terrible suffering on the people who have been ensnared by superstition and fear. But this week the glorious light of the Gospel is shining, darkness is retreating and the Kingdom of God is rising! (…Continued)

Without Me You Can Do Nothing – Cotonou, Benin – Day 2

Tonight we had a glorious meeting here in Cotonou, Benin. Evangelist Bonnke and I ministered in tandem and the presence of the Lord was tangible. After I preached the Gospel Evangelist Bonnke prayed for the sick. Crutches and wheelchairs went up into the air all over the field. So many cripples were healed. It was wonderful.

Yesterday we were invited to visit the President of Benin, Yayi Boni, who is also the chairman of the African Union, at his palace. He welcomed us with open arms and recognized the impact that the ministry of Reinhard Bonnke and Christ for all Nations has had on his great nation. (…Continued)

A Gospel Celebration – Cotonou, Benin – Day 1

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Dec 06, 2012  /     Crusade Photos, Posted from Cotonou Benin, reinhard bonnke  /     3 Comments

Tonight our Gospel Campaign began here in the city of Cotonou, Benin. Evangelist Bonnke preached such a clear and powerful Gospel message I don’t know how anyone could have rejected the invitation. Every time I hear the gospel it is a celebration…as if I’m hearing it for the first time. What a wonderful Jesus we serve.

Today our video crew documented the amazing story of a gentleman named Donne who was totally deaf since birth. When CfaN came to Cotonou 12 years ago he was thirty years old. Up to that point Donne had only been able to communicate through sign language, but that night, when evangelist Bonnke prayed for the sick, Jesus miraculously healed him. (…Continued)

RESULTS – Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Dec 02, 2012  /     Crusade Photos, Posted from Addis Ababa Ethiopia  /     4 Comments

It is with great joy that we announce the results from our recent Gospel Festival in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The total of returned decision cards is 240,815!

This is a mighty victory for the Kingdom of God under any circumstances, but we are especially grateful given the fact that this campaign was on the verge of being cancelled due to political pressures and logistical challenges. But our amazing team persevered under enormous pressure and the Lord intervened miraculously. What we have witnessed is nothing less than the hand of God at work! (…Continued)
