Dear Mission Partners,
After nearly 55 hours of travel, we’ve finally arrived in Mbarara, Uganda for our Gospel Crusade that starts tomorrow night. As we drove for several hours through country, we stopped for a photo op at a monument indicating that we were just passing over the equator. Have a look at the video I shot there.
There are only 13 countries in the world that the equator runs through and 6 are in Africa. We have taken Jesus’ command to “go into all the world…” quite seriously. And when we arrived in Mbarara, we could see that our efforts have been very appreciated.
Throngs of people flooded the streets shouting and waving. I popped out of the sunroof of the SUV to greet them. For more than an hour, we moved with the parade through town. Some were playing trumpets and beating drums. The horns on the cars and motorcycles were honking in a joyful rhythm. It reminds me of Philips visit to Samaria in Acts 8 where it says, “…There was great joy in that city.” Indeed, there is GREAT joy in Mbarara today, and tomorrow the crusade begins!
Please keep us in your prayers over the next several days. We are believing for a massive and historic harvest that will shake Uganda for the Gospel.
I’ll keep you posted.
Yours in the Gospel,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
Together with Reinhard Bonnke, Peter van den Berg and the whole CfaN team
