Dear Partners in the Harvest,
We have just received the news: last week, during the 5 days of meetings of our Gospel Campaign in Numan, Nigeria 557,860 people registered decisions for Jesus Christ.
We are rejoicing and praising the Lord for such a fruitful campaign. Thank you for partnering with us and with the Lord of the harvest. We are co-laborers together with him for the sake of millions of souls.
We return to Nigeria in less than 3-weeks. Please continue to support us with your prayers and finances as you are able.

I’ve just returned from the evening Revival service at Kensington Temple, in London. K.T. is a world famous church with a rich history and its pulpit has been graced by some of God’s premier men and women over the last 80 years. Founded by the renowned British evangelist; George Jeffreys, it is a Church that was not only born in “fire”, but continues in that same spirit and has planted 150 churches across London, making it one of the United Kingdom’s largest and most influential church movements. Today K.T. is pastored by Rev. Colin Dye and it’s Bible School is headed by Roberts Liardon (who wrote the well-known “God’s Generals” books).
I preached in the Bible school this morning and then in the Church service this evening and God moved in a powerful way. Many people came to salvation in tonight’s meeting and the Lord touched and healed many sick people. Also, there was such a wonderful presence of the Lord in the school this morning. I could see tears streaming down many faces as I challenged the students and I really sense that there is enormous potential here for a spiritual revolution across the U.K. England shall be saved!
I am looking forward to going home tomorrow after a “fortnight” on the road (Im in England remember). Im tired and loosing my voice, but Im so glad that I came. Thank you all for your prayers.
Another incredible Gospel Campaign has come to a close, just moments ago, here in Numan, Nigeria and our hearts are rejoicing at everything that the Lord has done here this week. A total of 835,000 people attended the meetings and a huge percentage of them made positive decisions to receive Jesus Christ as their savior. Also, 45,000 people attended the fire conference, innumerable healings, deliverances and Holy Sprit baptisms took place. Many of the local pastors already reported that their churches were flooded with new converts this morning and an entire city has been impacted by the power of the Gospel in a profound way. This is every soul-winner’s dream!
Many wonderful healings took place in tonight’s meeting including a woman who had been blind in one eye for the last two years. A man who had been paralyzed for the past 16 years from a stroke was also totally healed (see attached picture) along with a woman who was deaf and dumb…and many others. To God be all the glory!
I was so touched tonight by the testimony of one Muslim man who was instantly healed of severe chronic pain that had plagued him for many years. He said, “There are many Muslims here tonight that know me”. I asked him if he had received Jesus as his Savior and he replied, “YES, I have received him with both hands.” He went on to tell me that he has great joy in his heart, which he never had before and I could see it on his face and hear it in his voice…he had been truly born again. He finished by saying, “I thank God in the name of Jesus Christ!” Praise the Lord!…(continued)
This morning the Fire Conference venue was packed by 5:30 am. Rev Peter Vandenburg and I preached as the sun was still rising over Numan, but the people were wide-awake. Tomorrow is “Holy Spirit Day” and the conclusion of the Fire Conference. I am sure that there will be a mighty outpouring of the Fire of God.
Tonight, 200,000 people attended the meeting. The crowd seemed to stretch to the horizon. I’m sure that most could not see the preacher on the platform, but through our massive sound system, every one heard the Gospel clearly and there was a huge response. I am sure that there is great joy in the presence of the angels tonight….(Continued)
We were thrilled when we came in sight of the crusade field tonight and saw how many people had come. Attendance doubled tonight to 170,000 people! The atmosphere was absolutely electric…I wish you could have seen it. I preached on the Blood of Jesus to cleanse, heal, redeem and protect and then, after the prayer of salvation, I broke the curses over the land through the authority we have because of that precious blood and immediately healing began to take place.
Praise the Lord…the OUTPOURING continues!! We have just returned from the first meeting of the Gospel Campaign here in Numan, Nigeria where 85,000 people covered the field! During my message our huge generator suddenly broke down leaving the crowd in darkness. Our tech team was working to find a solution when suddenly thousands voices began to sing out of the darkness. The people were praising the Lord and worshiping…it was so beautiful. When the power came back on and I realized that no one had left, I heard the words of John 1:5 ringing in my heart; “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
Today we arrived in the city of Numan where our Gospel Campaign begins tomorrow night. The enthusiastic welcome was overwhelming. The people flooded the streets dancing, and rejoicing and many of the people ran beside our vehicle for miles as we paraded through the town. We were also welcomed to the palace of the local […]
