Dear Mission Partners,
Liberia is a nation that has experienced genocide, civil war, poverty and unspeakable suffering in recent years. The Scripture God gave me when I arrived is Luke 4:18, 19
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
The greatest salve for the human heart is the healing balm of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It liberates the captives, heals the brokenhearted and blesses multitudes. Tonight 90,000 people heard the Gospel preached with clarity and huge numbers responded with joy. After the prayer for salvation miracles began to happen, shouts of joy rang out from the crowd and crutches piled up on the platform. Blind eyes saw, deaf ears heard and crippled legs walked to the glory of God almighty.
Today was also the beginning of the Fire Conference. Before I began to preach, I asked a visiting pastor to share his testimony. He told us how he attended the Fire Conference in 2009 in Otukpo, Nigeria and it revolutionized his life and ministry. He is now holding crusades all over the place, seeing salvations, miracles and even people raised from the dead! This is what the fire conference is about. We believe that when we leave this nation, thousands of others will pick up the baton of the Gospel and run with it until all of Liberia is saved!
Together in the Gospel,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
Together with Reinhard Bonnke and the whole CfaN team
