Getting Rich In Africa?

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Jan 30, 2010  /     Posted from Ugep Nigeria  /     11 Comments

I ran across an article online where someone was accusing CfaN for fleecing the African people. This article said that since no other evangelists go to Africa nearly as often as Evangelist Bonnke and I, that is proof that we are making millions of dollars from the African people. While this accusation is so ludicrous it is actually laughable I wanted to share what we did receive as a gift on this last trip. In UGEP, the pastors were so blessed by what the Lord did that, together, as a group, they offered a gift to our team: a pickup truck full of cassava, bananas and a goat. Our Nigerian team took them back to the office and Im sure they had a wonderful feast.

To all the critics I would say this……(continued)

Adult Content!

Aha! I knew that title would get your attention. Well it seems as though my Facebook page has been hacked! I had not checked it for a couple of weeks, while I was in Africa and had no idea that it had happened until I got emails from friends saying that there was a link, disguised as something innocent, that would send the unwary clicker to a website full of “adult content”.

After getting several emails like this I began to see a pattern emerging that really bothered me….(continued)

Heart Transplant

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Jan 28, 2010  /     Posted from Home  /     0 Comment

David was one man personally and intimately aware of the deep darkness that lurks within the human heart. He had, himself, sunk to depths of depravity he would have never thought possible as a harp playing, shepherd boy. But situations, opportunities and regal power had brought to the surface the gruesome reality of the human heart condition.

When Jeremiah said, “The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; who can understand it?” (Jer. 17:9) he spoke like an insurance adjuster who writes of a damaged vehicle as a total loss. There seemed to be no hope for salvaging some good thing in it. Paul declared, “I know that nothing good lives in me”. And in Psalms reads, “All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one”.

I used to think that when David prayed, “Create in me a clean heart, O God…” he was asking God to clean his heart. Suddenly I realized that I had been reading it all wrong! David is not asking God to clean his heart, but rather to create a new clean heart…one that will replace the hopeless, desperate, unmitigated disaster he was born with. David wastes no time asking God to heal his old diseased heart. Instead he asks for a new one…a clean one. Such a thing, only God could create…….

Occultists are Born Again! – Ugep, Nigeria – Day 5

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Jan 24, 2010  /     Posted from Ugep Nigeria  /     2 Comments

Another great Gospel campaign has come to an end and, as always, we feel mixed emotions. We will miss Ugep and it’s people very much, but we rejoice with what God has done here. It is a miracle. Ugep is only a small village, but tonight 185,000 people were present and received the Word of God with great joy. Many thousands were born again including a group of young men who came forward to testify tonight that they were part of an occult movement in the local university, but they have now given their lives to Jesus and renounced occultism! (see attached picture)

We have often been told that the local churches are filled with miracle testimonies of what God did in the campaign every Sunday even a year after we are gone. Im sure this will be the case in Ugep. There is no doubt in our minds that Jesus has done something extraordinary here…

The Great African Outpouring – Ugep, Nigeria – Day 4

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Jan 23, 2010  /     Posted from Ugep Nigeria  /     2 Comments

What we are experiencing here in Nigeria defies all description. It is nothing less than a sovereign outpouring. This morning the Holy Spirit fell in the Fire Conference before I had a chance to preach. After Rev Peter Vandenburg ministered the people began to cry out to the Lord and the Holy Spirit swept across that field with a tangible presence. I interrupted the normal schedule and began to prophecy over the people and even as I was speaking the Fire fell. All over that field men and woman were laid prostrate and the Holy Spirit filled many thousands in a spontaneous way. I laid hands on a couple hundred pastors and sent them into the crowd to lay hands on all the people. As they moved through the crowd cripples began to walk and the sick were healed. It was glorious!

Tonight after I preached the Gospel and prayed with thousands of people who wanted to receive Jesus, we prayed again over that massive crowd to receive the Baptism into the Holy Spirit and the Fire fell once again. We heard amazing miracle testimonies…
