Dear Mission Partners,

I’ve just received the report from Kumasi that 583,480 decision cards were registered during the crusade! We are rejoicing with Heaven over the many lives that were changed for eternity. Thank you for standing with us in this ongoing harvest of souls.

This being our last Gospel Crusade of the year, let me take this opportunity to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Yours in the Gospel,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

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

Over One Million – Over One Week – Kumasi, Ghana – Final Day

Despite the fact that tonight we concluded the 406th Gospel Crusade I saw a couple things tonight that I’ve never seen before. First of all, the crowd was so dense that there was enormous heat coming off the crowd – so much so that people began to faint. This is not new however; we’ve seen this before. What was new was the solution the local authorities had for the problem. They brought in fire engines and began to douse the crowd with water cannons to cool them off! All throughout my preaching 50-60 foot tall jets of water moved around the crowd spraying the people (quite ironic considering we have been praying all week that it wouldn’t rain). There’s never a dull moment.

Because of the incredible density of the crowd, especially near the platform, we were unable to bring people forward to give their testimonies of healing. Still, when I asked for a show of hands from those who had experienced a miracle, it was thousands. But the greatest miracle of all was the multitudes that were born again tonight, making a life changing decision to follow Jesus.

This afternoon, Peter van den Berg and I were invited to visit with the King of the Ashante Kingdom (which was the largest African Kingdom in history, spanning over several countries at one point). The King told me he had heard reports of what was happening at the crusade and asked if I would pray for him. I had a chance to pray with him, his top deputies and his 104-year-old mother.

Preaching in the Rain – Kumasi, Ghana – Day 3

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Nov 09, 2014  /     #AfricaShallBeSaved, #GospelCrusade, Crusade Photos, Ghana, Kumasi  /     27 Comments

Tonight the crowd grew to over 300,000 people…and not for lack of rain. As the worship was going on it started to pour. I thought the people might run for cover, but instead they lifted their voices and began to pray. After a few seconds, the rain suddenly stopped and the people began to rejoice and praise the Lord. After I started preaching, once again it started to pour. I told the people, “If you will stand in the rain, I will stand here with you.” No one moved. The rain did not distract from the message one bit. Thousands upon thousands as far as the eye could see responded to the altar call. Praise the Lord.

Tonight I also prayed for the people to receive the baptism into the Holy Spirit as we did this morning in the Fire Conference. In the morning Peter van den Berg preached the final message and by the time I got up to pray the people were ready. There was such a powerful outpouring of the spirit in both morning and evening meetings.

Tonight we also heard many wonderful testimonies (…continued)

A Remarkable Start – Kumasi, Ghana – Day 1

By Daniel Kolenda  /     Nov 07, 2014  /     #AfricaShallBeSaved, #GospelCrusade, Crusade, Crusade Photos, Ghana, Kumasi  /     28 Comments

I’ve just returned to my room after an extraordinary first night at our crusade here in Kumasi, Ghana. I can truly say that we haven’t seen anything like this in quite a while. The first miracle was the weather. When we arrived in Kumasi a couple days ago we found constant rain and the crusade ground was a swamp. The weather forecast was calling for a 90% chance of thunderstorms all week. This would have been disastrous for our open air meetings. I asked many of you to pray and we were praying ourselves that the Lord would hold back the rain.

At four o’clock this afternoon, just before It was time to head to the field, I pulled my curtains open and looked out to see the sun shining brightly and the ground dried up! Not a drop of rain fell on us tonight and the crowd started out at 115,000 people! This is only the first night. This crusade could turn out to be absolutely massive.

The people responded to the Gospel with great joy and many remarkable miracles took place. First of all, there were so many cripples healed tonight, at one point I was looking for other testimonies.
