Dear Missions Partners,

Despite the fact that tonight marks the completion of our 406th Gospel Crusade I saw a couple things tonight that I’ve never seen before. First of all, the crowd was so dense that there was enormous heat coming off the people – so much so that some began to faint. This is not new however; we’ve seen this before. What was new was the solution the local authorities had for the problem. They brought in fire engines and began to douse the crowd with water cannons to cool them off! All throughout my preaching 50-60 foot tall jets of water moved around the crowd spraying the people (quite ironic considering we have been praying all week that it wouldn’t rain). There’s never a dull moment.

Because of the incredible density of the crowd, especially near the platform, we were unable to bring people forward to give their testimonies of healing. Still, when I asked for a show of hands from those who had experienced a miracle, it was thousands. But the greatest miracle of all was the multitudes that were born again tonight, making a life changing decision to follow Jesus.

This afternoon, Peter van den Berg and I were invited to visit with the King of the Ashante Kingdom (which was the largest African Kingdom in history, spanning over several countries at one point). The King told me he had heard reports of what was happening at the crusade and asked if I would pray for him. I had a chance to pray with him, his top deputies and his 104-year-old mother.

The pastors sitting on the platform were the top bishops and apostles of the region. They are distinguished men and women – highly educated and greatly respected throughout Ghana. They told me that they have never seen an event like this before. They also commented over and over that they were very blessed by the messages and the purity of the Gospel that was preached. This is what we set out to accomplish. We don’t just want to have a few miracles and big crowds; we are here to preach the clear Gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit.

All in all we saw 1,060,000 attend this week’s Gospel Crusade. The city has been absolutely rocked and I’m sure that generations to come will be impacted by what Jesus has done here this week.

Being the last crusade of the year, on behalf of the whole CfaN family, I want to wish you and yours an early Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season. May your home be filled with the wonder of God’s love expressed in the ultimate gift of Jesus Christ.

Yours in the Gospel,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

Together with Reinhard Bonnke, Peter van den Berg and the whole CfaN team
