Dear Mission Partners,
I’m coming to you on the last night of the final meeting of our Gospel Campaign here in Tema – Ashaiman, Ghana where over 300,000 people flooded the field – a reclaimed garbage dump. There could not have been a more appropriate site for the redemption miracle that took place this week. Many thousands of people were saved, healed, delivered and baptized into the Holy Spirit. It reminds me of the verse that we read this morning in our team devotions from Romans 15:19, “ In mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God…I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.” This week, the “full-Gospel” package has been delivered, and the local leaders have told me that the region has been shaken.
Tonight, after preaching the Gospel and praying for the sick, we heard wonderful testimonies. One young lady said that she had been unable to turn her neck without pain and as a result her grandmother had made a little necklace for her to wear. This necklace was to be a “protection” from pain for her neck – a superstitious charm. Tonight, Jesus healed her completely! She asked me to cut the necklace off, which I did.
We also prayed for huge boxes of prayer requests tonight (many of which were sent in by many of you – our partners around the world). There, in that atmosphere of faith and miracles, 300,000 people lifted their voices and prayed over those requests. I am sure the Lord has heard and answered.
Before praying for the nation and pronouncing a blessing for the local believers (which I always do on the final night of a campaign like this), I asked a friend, Brian Guerin, who is a guest this week – a personal friend and a powerful prophetic minister – to share what he had seen prophetically for the region. He delivered a powerful word, and the people received it with joy. I am sure that Tema & Ashaiman will never be the same again.
Thank you for praying for us this week. We are already hard at work preparing the next crusade that will take place here in West Africa. Please continue to pray for us as we keep pressing forward, proclaiming the name of Jesus to the ends of the earth.
Yours in the Gospel,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
Together with Reinhard Bonnke, Peter Vandenberg and the whole CfaN team
