Dear Mission Partners,
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!
Tonight I took authority over demonic spirits and rebuked them in the name of Jesus. All over the field, demoniacs began to manifest violently. They were carried out to a tent where our deliverance team will exorcize the evil spirits. We call it the “snake pit” and it was full tonight. I also called out the ancient traditional curses and broke their power in the name of Jesus and we burned the charms, fetishes, amulets, juju and voodoo idols just like they did in Acts 19.
Tonight, our small team celebrated Christmas together with a meal. We are so thankful for another amazing year of harvest, when literally millions of people have heard the Gospel through CfaN crusades. We consider each of you a part of the CfaN family. From all of us here in Benin to each of you – Merry Christmas!
Yours in the Gospel,
Evangelists Daniel Kolenda & Reinhard Bonnke
Together with the whole CfaN team
