Dear Mission Partners,
Over 20 years ago, the Christ for all Nations team traveled to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia for a Gospel Campaign. Anticipation was very high and everyone believed it would be a landmark event. But the permits were revoked and the campaign never took place. Since then, there has been a burning in Pastor Bonnke’s heart to return to this place to take care of “unfinished business.”
Tonight, after all these years, it is finally happening. Tonight was the first night of our “Gospel Festival” here in Addis Ababa. The crowd on this opening night was over 75,000 and there was electricity in the air. Pastor Bonnke preached a classic Gospel message about turning from darkness to light and after the prayer for salvation I prayed for the sick. We saw wonderful miracles including a woman whose fibroid came out of her body right on the field! A crippled man walked, tumors disappeared and much more! Jesus is alive in Addis!
There are so many amazing stories to tell of the miracles that God has performed that have allowed us to be here right now. The fact that we are here and that the Gospel festival is taking place is a miracle in itself. Perhaps one day I can tell you more.
We covet your prayers this week as we break the bread of life for multitudes of hungry souls. We will keep you updated each night as the events unfold. The best is yet to come!
Yours in the Harvest,
Evangelists Daniel Kolenda & Reinhard Bonnke
Together with the whole CfaN team
