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
