Dear Mission Partners,
I don’t even want to try to describe the atmosphere tonight. Words just don’t suffice. Even this video doesn’t do it justice, but you really should take a minute to watch this short clip that I recorded from my cell phone while standing on the platform after praying for the sick and praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. If this is not “joy unspeakable and full of glory” then I don’t know what is:
Standing there on the platform, in this atmosphere, miracles were happening everywhere. The crowd was heaving with excitement and faith. Behind me stood a woman who had been crippled for 6 years after a botched neck surgery. Tonight, she along with several other cripples, were healed. We danced together and rejoiced. It was so beautiful.
Then a young lady came forward with tears streaming down her face. Her mother told me that she had been deaf since she was a small child. She was not able to go to school as a result, and her whole life was affected by it. Tonight, when I asked the people to raise their hands, she responded and lifted her hands. Her mother was shocked. She said, “Did you understand?” and the girl answered her mother for the first time in many years. “Yes…I can hear.” She embraced me tightly as she wept; then her momma came in for a group hug. I can honestly say it was one of the most precious moments of my life.
She was not the only deaf person that was healed. A 25-year-old man, who was deaf from birth in his right ear, said that as I was praying, he physically felt a finger enter his ear. Then suddenly his ear exploded with sound.
There were many more testimonies. Too many to convey and too many to hear. God is shaking this city mightily. Daloa will never be the same.
Despite some threats on the field tonight, we persisted. God protected us and showed up, as you can see for yourself in my video.
Thank you for praying. Tomorrow is the last day. Please continue to cover us.
Yours in the Gospel,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
Together with the whole CfaN team
