Beauty for Ashes – Kigali, Rwanda – Day 3

Dear Mission Partners,

We’ve just returned from the field – soaking wet! In spite of the cold rain and lightning, the people came. They stayed, and many were saved and healed.

Preaching in the rain is never our first choice, but there was a “silver lining” this time. Next door, a large sporting event was taking place in the national open-air stadium. Thousands of people came out of the stadium to find shelter and were standing in range of our speakers where they could hear the Gospel. I pray the Lord touched many of their lives.

Before I preached tonight, I asked one of my apprentices and fellow evangelist, Daniel Mironichenko, to share his heart with the people. He did a wonderful job setting the stage for the main message.

We also had the chance to visit the genocide memorial today. 20 years ago, the genocide in Rwanda claimed almost a million lives – men, women, and children alike, innocent people. Most of them were hacked to death with machetes. We visited one mass grave where more than 250,000 unidentified corpses are buried. I took a bouquet of flowers to the grave on behalf of the ministry. As a team, we prayed for the nation and future of Rwanda. May the Lord take what the devil meant for evil and bring something good out of it. This is why we preach the Gospel – only Jesus can give beauty for ashes.

Please pray for us tomorrow. The weather forecast is calling for rain once again. Pray that the Lord would hold back the rain and give us one more shot to touch thousands with the Gospel. Thank you for praying!

Yours in the Gospel,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

Together with Reinhard Bonnke, Peter van den Berg and the whole CfaN team

    What a wonderful day! We wanted to spend more time with the evangelist, even if we were soaked wet we didn’t feel the rain, we where so hungry for the word of God, so thirsty ! Evangelist of God the Lord promised me that I will see big miracles, extreme ones before you leave, we are praying for the weather and are expecting the maximum for Sunday !! May God bless you and your Team and may He blesses more the intercessors, we can feel “their job”
