Today was the conclusion of the Fire Conference here in Akure. Early in the morning, more than 25,000 pastors and church workers arrived to receive their impartation from Heaven (see attached picture). Rev. Peter Van den berg preached a powerful message about “Final Steps to Receiving the Power of God” and by the time I stood up to preach the Fire was already falling…I didn’t even get to preach my message! The Holy Spirit did His work and we are rejoicing.
Tonight the crowd grew to 185,000 and the meeting started out with a dynamic testimony of a man who had been a witchdoctor when Reinhard Bonnke and the CfaN team came to Ilorin, Nigeria in 1990. He told us that he was a very evil man who specialized in black magic and death, but He said that once the Crusade started his business dropped off because his customers had become Christians at the Bonnke Crusade. He was furious and came to curse Bonnke, but he ended up getting saved instead! The next night he loaded a truck with piles of witchcraft items, charms, fetishes and ritualistic tools and brought them to the crusade field to be burned. Today, 20-years later, the witchdoctor is still serving the Lord and now travels around Nigeria as an evangelist! He said that he used to be known as the “Mysterious Bird Herbalist” but now he has changed his name to Adeduko BONNKE.
Many thousands responded to the message and received Jesus as Savior and then we prayed for the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Again…there was another mighty outpouring and many received out of His fullness.
Please see the attached pictures of today’s services as well as the witchdoctor who is now born again and a man who had been crippled for 5 years, but was healed tonight.
Yours in the Gospel,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
Together with Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke & the whole CfaN team
