Speechless!! – Abidjan, Ivory Coast – Day 5

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Jan 27, 2013  /     Crusade Photos, Posted from Abidjan Ivory Coast  /     

Dear Mission Partners,

It’s not often that I find myself without words, but right now I’m really not sure what to say. I’ve never seen anything before quite like what we experienced tonight.

Often, when a sick person gets healed, it causes a great commotion in the immediate area surrounding that person. When those standing close to the miracle watch it happen right before their eyes, it has a profound impact on them. They often begin to shout, scream, cry, jump, dance etc. and we can usually hear and see from the platform that a miracle has taken place out in the crowd. We’ve actually become quite accustomed to this phenomenon over the years as it regularly happens after the prayer for the sick.  But tonight was something altogether different…

Before I had even gotten up to preach (during the boring announcements), this started happening all over the field a scale that is hard to describe. The hair on the back of my neck stood up as we watched wheelchairs, crutches and walkers going into the air EVERYWHERE! One after another after another after another until the excitement among the crowd of 250,000 rose to fever pitch (even now it’s emotional to recall what happened). The roar of the crowd kept growing louder and louder until those of us on the platform looked at each other with shock and awe! It was hard to believe what was happening!

The blind, the deaf, the mute, the lame and those with all manner of sickness and disease were being spontaneously healed – without a single prayer being said and even before the Gospel was preached. It reminded me of something Evangelist Bonnke has often said, “Sometimes the Holy Spirit cannot wait for we preachers to finish our boring sermons – He itches to do great things!”

Now this amazing and historic event has come to a dramatic close and our whole team is in awe of what Jesus did this week. Nearly a million people attended the 5 days of meetings. The way Abidjan was shaken is like something out of the book of Acts. I can tell you for sure that I will never forget it.

To those of you who helped us financially and who interceded for us – thank you, thank you, thank you! You are a part of the team and the CfaN family. We are co-laborers together in the harvest. We love you, we appreciate you and we thank God for your lives.

We now set our sights on Cameroon where we will be in just three weeks. We are still believing God for the needed finances. Please consider helping us.

 

Together in the Harvest,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
Together with the whole CfaN team

 

A young boy who was once deaf, but now can hears clearly!

Praise the Lord!

Praying over our partners prayer requests!

    Hi Daniel

    May The Lord continue to be with you as you preach the Gospel to the world.

    In your latest writings you say and I quote ” it was hard to believe what was happening”. In regards to miracles happening. As you say before the gospel was even preached

    To me reading this it sounds like you don’t belive that Jesus can perform miracles. I don’t think it should be hard to belive, that the Holy Spirit is present, and that miracles can happen.if the heart is pure, this should not be that hard to believe.

    All the best.

    Praise the Lord for your team! Thank you for holding onto the roots of the gospel which is the power of the Holy Spirit! We need you so much in the body of Christ to keep encouraging us to do evangelism only by the power of the Holy Spirit and not by our own persuasive ways. We know there is a wave of false teachings going on in today’s world, but I am comforted and joyful knowing you are holding strong to the roots of the Bible! Thank you! We love being monthly partners! We also serve in Africa! To God be the glory!

    Yes Dear Evangelist Kolenda, as a witness on that 5th day, I can say that I have never seen such a thing before. While the Responsible of CfaN for West Africa was thanking the different persons and groups that have contributed to the success of the crusade, miracles (as you described aboved) started to occur in the crowd. We just started glorifying God for what He was doing amid us. We really couldn’t care about the rest of the annoucements at that moment. May God bles you and the CfaN team!

    Quel merveilleux moment l’Eternel Dieu a permis au peuple de Côte d’ivoire de vivre au travers de l’Equipe CfaN! Le Seigneur a vu nos péchés, nos manquements, nos égarements, nos rancoeurs, notre soif de sa Parole. Il a eu compassion de nous et vous a envoyé vers ce peuple déboussolé, sans repère. Et vous avez apporté au temps opportun Cette Eau qui libère, qui fortifie, qui guérit. Vous l’avez apportée aux pauvres, aux riches, aux malades, aux bien portants, aux chrétiens, aux inconvertis, bref, à tous. Après votre départ du pays, nous continuons d’être témoins de plusieurs personnes qui ont découvert le Christ Jésus et lui ont donné leur vie.
    Que la grâce de l’Eternel continue d’abonder dans vos vies chers serviteurs de Dieu. Merci à toi Evangéliste Daniel kolanda pour ce canal puissant que tu as été pour la Gloire de notre Seigneur Jésus. Merci à l’Equipe CfaN que nous espérons revoir sous peu encore à Abidjen. La paix et la grâce de Notre Dieu soit sur vous et que vous continuez, sous le Saint et Puissant regard de Notre Seigneur Jésus, à ramener de plus en plus d’âmes égarées dans la maison de notre Père! Amen!

    I was a 4 years old child when Reinhard came for the first time to Cameroon. My father would carry me up that I might see what was happening on the stage: miracles everywhere. Not long ago I still had the record of that great crusade. I am so glad cfan is coming again. We’re impatiently waiting for you, looking forward at the great things Jesus is going to do here.
    We pray for you and love you.

    welcome to Cameroon in advance!!!

    je suis catholique, mais cela ne me gene pas de prier dans des assemblées de prieres ou le Glorieux nom de mon Doux Jesus est glorifié, exalté, élevé, chanté et magnifié.
    je connaissais deja l histoire du Reverend Reinhard Bonké, mais je ne connaissais pas encore le merveilleux homme de Dieu Daniel Kolenda.
    jai été donc a cette croisade, durant les 5 jours, et la , jai été tres tres tres impressionnée de voir la Gloire de Dieu, l Alpha et l Omega, le Tout puissant Seigneur Jesus , se manfester puissamment. j en ai été edifiée.
    Bravo a vous, toute l equipe pour ce mervelleux temps d adoration, de repentence et d abandon total a notre Dieu.
    Dieu vous garde, et merci d etre passé en cote d ivoire. nous en avions besoin, pour une vraie reconciliation totale et durable.

    God bless you.

      Shalom Evangelist,
      i’m writing to you from South Africa.
      where can we get here in Pretoria your new book “Live before you die” ?
      and my second preoccupation, is to know if is there any mean to write you privately or even to call you.

      thanks and may the Almighty God continue to bless you.
