Tonight was the climax of the Gospel Crusade here in Isokoland, Nigeria and what a glorious finale it was. The crowd was teaming with 425,000 people hungry to hear the Word of God! After the prayer for salvation we prayed for the crowd to receive the Baptism into the Holy Spirit and the Fire fell. As the deafening sound of the crowd speaking in tongues rose to heaven, I could hear the words of the prophet Joel resonating in my spirit, “In the last days, I will pour out my Spirit upon ALL FLESH.” What a glorious time we live in. These are the days that “many prophets and righteous men longed to see…”
After the prayer for the sick, the miracles began:
– A 35-year-old man deaf and dumb from birth could suddenly hear and pronounce words with astounding clarity (see the attached picture).
– Another man, 32 years old was born crippled. All of his life he had crawled from place to place on his hands and knees which were visibly calloused and as worn as an old shoe. Tonight the power of God came upon him and he walked for the first time in his life!
– Several epileptics were also healed along with another deaf girl and many other various ailments and sicknesses. Jesus is so merciful.
Tomorrow we will all be heading home, but not for long. Our next crusade here begins in two weeks in the city of Mubi. Thank you so much for helping us to bring the Gospel to this remote village in the one of the world’s “uttermost parts”. Your every investment will return to you in eternal dividends. We are asking ourselves, as we always do, “what if we had not come?”
Yours forever in Jesus,
Evangelists Daniel Kolenda and Reinhard Bonnke,
together with the whole CfaN Team.
