I am in Frankfurt Germany now preparing to board a plane for Nigeria. The Crusade in Okitipupa will start on Tuesday. You may have heard on the news about the violence that has broken out in Jos, Nigeria several days ago.
This morning I will be flying to Germany for a couple of days and then on to Nigeria for another Great Gospel Crusade. I was blessed to be able to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family on Monday, and now I am looking forward to the next glorious harvest. In a few days hundreds of thousands of new names will be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life…that is something to rejoice about!
I noticed this year that many businesses were advertising today as “Turkey Day.” The fist time I noticed this, it was on the sign for a business that said “Happy Turkey Day.” I must admit I was a bit incensed. “How dare they try to remove the giving of thankfulness to God and replace it with a tribute to turkey!” Then in the midst of my righteous steaming it suddenly struck me…how often have I been more interested in the food and the friends and the football and forgotten to remember the faithfulness of God and give thanks to Him myself.
I want to let everyone know that on December 13, 2008 Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke will be in Tampa, Florida for an Impartation Breakfast. This is a unique opportunity to hear Evangelist Bonnke in an intimate setting and be prayed for by him personally. There will also be an opportunity to meet him and get a book signed, picture taken, etc. DON’T MISS IT!!
I have just returned home…very happy to see my family and rejoicing over the glorious harvest that took place in Ikot Ekpene over the last week. In spite of the rainforest-like weather conditions encountered in this Delta region of Nigeria, the crowd topped 400,000 in a single service! Below is a video shot by one of the tech team guys with his little personal camera. It will give you a glimpse into what it was like setting up the equipment on the muddy field. They literally pitched the platform where the trucks got stuck.
