Today CfaN history was made! This morning was the grand finale of our Fire Conference here in Ibadan, Nigeria. Fire Conferences are events for registered delegates only—primarily pastors, bishops, and church leadership. This morning over 150,000 delegates attended, making it the largest Fire Conference in history! Peter Vandenberg, John Darku (African Director), Levi Lutz (CfaN Bootcamp Director), and I were the preachers, but the ministry team consisted of more than 100 CfaN Bootcamp students graduates and coaches. In the final session, they all went through the massive crowd, each one laying hands on hundreds or even thousands of delegates. It was epic and life-changing!
Tonight, the crusade ground was heaving with energy. Eddie James, the Nations Church Worship Director, and the Nations Worship team led the massive crowd in a powerful time of Worship. I preached on the power in the blood of Jesus. Then, receiving a list of well-known local curses, I called them out by name (in the local language), breaking their power in the name of Jesus. We burned witchcraft items (like idols, amulets, fetishes, sorcery stones, and other “juju”) in large metal drums (see Acts 19:19). After this, I prayed over the crowd to receive the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It was a mass Spirit baptism as many thousands were filled to overflowing.
Finally, I prayed for the sick, and amazing miracles happened. Here’s just a sampling:
- The first testimony was from the wife of my interpreter, who was healed from painful stomach ulcers!
- A man who was totally deaf in the left ear was healed and can now hear perfectly.
- A woman’s painful fibroid (which she had suffered with for 10 years) suddenly vanished tonight.
- A woman suffering from breast cancer for 5 years was healed.
- An elderly lady who was unable to walk without pain and the aid of a walking stick ran and danced on the platform tonight without pain!
Tomorrow is the final night of the crusade here in Ibadan. The city is already shaking, and I believe the best is yet to come. Please continue to pray for us.
