Bujumbura, Burundi Great Gospel Crusade 2014- Final Day

Dear Mission Partners,

We’ve just returned from the State House where the President of Burundi lives with his family. Our team was invited to be their special guests after tonight’s Gospel meeting. We had another full service. There was wonderful worship, I preached a Gospel message, gave an invitation for salvation, and we prayed for the President and his top government officials who were all present. I’ve never seen anything quite like it before. They truly fear the Lord and desire to serve Him.

Tonight’s final meeting, of this Gospel Crusade, was an amazing success. The only difficulty that we had was the size of the crowd. There were so many people that were pressed onto that field. I was concerned, at certain points, that someone would suffocate. We removed the barriers so that the people could fill all the available space in front of the platform. As you can see from the pictures, the platform looked like a raft floating on an ocean of humanity!

More than a third of the population of the city of Bujumbura, the capital, was at the meeting tonight. Tens of thousands of people responded to the Gospel. Deaf ears opened, cripples walked, and many other miracles took place.

The last time that Christ for all Nations was in Burundi for a crusade was 25 years ago. Today there is a whole new generation, and most of the hundreds of thousands that attended this week’s meetings were young people who have now had a life-changing encounter with Jesus. The bishop sitting next to me on the platform told me that all three of his children were filled with the Holy Spirit last night. He said that they were so drunk in the Spirit that they had to be carried off the field. So many young people were saved, healed, delivered and baptized in the Holy Spirit this week that it’s hard to even imagine how the future will be affected. History has been made here! The future of Burundi is very bright.

Today is my birthday, and I could not think of a more wonderful gift than the privilege of sharing the love of God through Jesus Christ. Thank you for standing with us, shoulder-to-shoulder, in this historic harvest of souls. Now our hearts and prayers move to Rwanda where we will be in a few weeks for another Gospel Campaign. Please pray for us as we make final preparations for another massive harvest here in Africa.

 

Yours in the Gospel,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

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

    Praise the Lord! This is wonderful news in the times that we live. Thank you for sharing this. Now is the time that the world needs to hear about Jesus Christ and His gospel, probably more than ever before. They need His redemtive Power, to be baptised in the Holy Spirit, to be healed and to have everlasting life. Thank you for going out to preach to the masses. Thank you for your obedience to be led by God’s Holy Spirit so His will can be done amongst the nations. Time is running out and we need to reach out NOW to a lost world before it’s too late. I wish I could be involved in reaching out that way. May God’s will be done.

    Dear Evang. Daniel Kolenda and Reinhard Bonnke,

    There is great joy in our hearts and a greater thirst for God when we see the way God uses you to bring the gospel to Africa. Thank you for making yourselves available to God for this great harvest. This is the most important thing Africa needs.

    As youths we are very impressed by all the work you, and we truly want to say that you are our models. We want to be your imitators as you are Christ’s imitators.

    God bless you and Happy birthday to Evang. Daniel Kolenda !

    Dear Evangelist Daniel and Reinhard Bonnke,

    Thank you very much to expand the gospel of Jesus .

    I really feel so excited that even the President of Burundi loves the gospel of Jesus when he is the head of the Nation.

    I think God is about to do an amazing thing for that country no wonder they can even serve as combatant in Somalia. Its the brave and strong heart of the president being guided by the Holy Spirit.

    We love that kind of visitation in Uganda so that our leaders can respond in a more clear way to the gospel.

    Thank so much the gift of of love you gave out on your birth day. I know you must be the most happiest being on this planet as you witnessed the soul harvesting on this day. Nothing would equal to that.

    Yours faithfully,

    Brian Wamala Lubega

    God bless !
